An idea I had for launching things into space involving using a 5 mile tall building that uses rail gun technology going along either side of the building.

Build a 5 mile tall building (or taller) on the equator.  The building is basically a giant rail gun.  In other words, use the same technology the military ships are using to launch projectiles 17 miles away, except this gun shoots a rocket towards space.  

This building/rocket launcher could have two settings; one would be with hyper g-force to shoot inanimate stuff into space like water, extra fuel, structural parts, and dirt for a massive space station or lunar colony.  I imagine this setting could probably get something into a low earth orbit without using any propellant.   The other setting would setting would be a slower, non-lethal, and lower g-force setting for shooting people into space.

The building shoots objects many miles towards space and rockets kick-in at some point and continue to propel the object the rest of they way into space.

The reason I say build it on the equator is because that's the area of the earth that spinning the fastest already.

As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

"impure thoughts of every kind crystallize into enervating and confusing habits, which solidify into distracting and adverse circumstances: thoughts of fear, doubt, and indecision crystallize into weak, unmanly, and irresolute habits, which solidify into circumstances of failure, indigence, and slavish dependence"
"pure thoughts crystallize into habits of temperance and self-control, which solidify into circumstances of repose and peace: thoughts of courage, self-reliance, and decision crystallize into manly habits, which solidify into circumstances of success, plenty, and freedom"
