Do you enjoy living on planet Earth?


Another earth movie and end-time videos inspires us to discuss possibility of either replacement of Earth or getting extra planet to expand our options and living space where we could also evolve further or fixing current planet to 'get rid of bugs and errors'(so to speak). Also related question to movie is what would your reaction be if in one average day in your life you would receive info about another planet like ours just next to us? Would you be happy that we would have another place to live and travel to|from or extra happy because you wanted to live there long time ago leaving this mess behind or sad because that would probably won't help fix current planet? There are a lot of discussions about negative side of this story(disasters, alien invasion, punishment of God(s) etc.) already so why not speak about positive side of this story instead?

Question

The poll is too limited for me. Good links tho makes me think of Fringe and Portal 2 plus the fact that fiction comes from life also all things die so enjoy (sounds sadistic but that's all we get until that upload part?)

:Edit.

The Earth would be a great place, if nobody were living on it.

I saw the movie about 6 month ago. It is really unique.

One hundred "Another Earth" will be not enough to find in one of them a carefree and happy myself. So I remain on this

I would worry that its gravitational forces would kill everyone on Earth.

I'm sorry to say this but we can't improve it anymore - we can only fix bugs and get rid of errors but we can't do much new improvements(unless we get rid of some private properties and government fields). Unless we make some disaster at cost of tragedy to make room for something new.

There is rumor going on that in past Mars was usable by humans and next planet after Earth that fits for us(for future needs) is Venus.
