What are you on about, sub-

*clicks on link*

.....23 Canadians volunteered to go on a one-way mission to Mars


I, too, am okay with this.

/Please let them be "Beliebers".

It could be like Australia except with attention whores instead of criminals.
 
2013-04-29 07:36:00 PM  
Where do I submit my nominations?
 
2013-04-29 07:39:05 PM  
It's been done.

Since Ted Nugent hasn't lived up to his "dead or in jail" promise yet, let's give him an option C.

If by "never come back" means "die of lack of oxygen and / or food and water, or solar radiation, or sudden decompression, or hit by a errant meteor, or falling into a precipice, or ....well...you get the idea.

/No thanks, ill just stay here.

ImpatientlyUnsympathetic: Where do I submit my nominations?


Indeed!

Maybe they can send 30 of the missions; that would cover both houses of congress and a few extras.

Wasn't there a Fox Pilot that had a "let's go to another planet and finance it with a reality TV?" premise already?
 
2013-04-29 07:41:44 PM  
Could we just send Congress instead?
 
2013-04-29 07:42:06 PM  
I nominate the Kardashians.
 
2013-04-29 07:42:15 PM  
Greatest reality show of all time.....


That's not all that hard to achieve now, is it?
 
2013-04-29 07:43:05 PM  
Unfortunately, the ones who volunteer are probably interesting, smart and healthy. It's the ones who don't volunteer who I'm going to be stuck here on Earth with. My wife refuses to even consider this, even if they eventually allowed families.

Remember kids, the "pioneering spirit" is simply the burning desire to get as far away as possible from the last bunch of assholes who ruined everything.
 
2013-04-29 07:43:41 PM  
And none of the volunteers qualified.

The "healthy" part is a bit tricky.

Hey, if the Golgafrinchams hadn't done the same thing Earth never would have been populated.

Yeah, are they accepting nominations?

Top 10 "get" to go.  No discussion.

Don't pander to me, kid. One tiny crack in the hull, and our blood boils in thirteen seconds. Solar flare might crop up, cook us in our seats. And wait till you're sitting pretty with a case of Andorian shingles. See if you're still so relaxed when your eyeballs are bleeding! Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence.
 
2013-04-29 07:51:43 PM  
They should choose vegetarians to go.  No meat eater would stay sane and survive the trip ... unless fellow travelers suddenly disappearing inexplicably becomes an acceptable occurance as described by the one guy seemingly getting fatter during the trip.
 
2013-04-29 07:51:55 PM  
I nominate all posters on Fark's politics subforum.
 
2013-04-29 07:52:28 PM  
Ooooh, please tell me Lamar Smith is one of the volunteers!
 
2013-04-29 07:53:41 PM  
As long as the automated habitat/fueling/crawlers/distillers that are launched first set up with zero problem, then we welcome new inhabitants to Mars.

/Sorry about the rust, but Mars was where we dumped all the shiat that we couldn't use anymore.

2013-04-29 07:55:05 PM  
I would have signed up too but I know there's no chance of me getting picked. I think a lot of people probably thought the same.

scalpod: Remember kids, the "pioneering spirit" is simply the burning desire to get as far away as possible from the last bunch of assholes who ruined everything.


That's why I'd be interested in going.
 
2013-04-29 07:57:56 PM  
I live in Detroit.

Pick me.

Please.

I'd go, if I wasn't married with kids.

You'd be remembered for decades, perhaps centuries, as one of the fools/heros that first stepped foot on Mars.

All in good fun until they start getting all Reavery.

A perpetual herpaderp flamewar inside a tin can with limited resources? It would turn all "Lord of the Flies" in about two weeks.

Wow, I actually never considered that, and you are correct. I wouldn't go unless there was Five Guys on board.

If it weren't for the fact I don't have kids yet. . .

/radiation will probably play hell on the reproductive system, but other than that, the fiancé and I would be OUTTA here. . .

Or cancelled after three episodes and quickly forgotten.

That was Venus, not Mars. Anyways, Mars has fields of baby back ribs, not ham bushes.

we can't land a dude on the moon, how we going to get to mars?
 
2013-04-29 08:27:09 PM  
Going to Mars?  OK.

Dying on Mars?  Not so much.  I'll miss my wife and my oxygen.

I'm pretty sure that almost anyone who would volunteer to go to Mars and not return is someone with whom I would not want to be stuck on Mars.

But with all the poop lining wont they be safe?
