Don't bother, they're here.

She said people who know her understand why she would chuck an earthly existence for a Martian one.

Yes, her cat and other cat are very supportive.

They should absolutly send him up with only clowns and film it and make it a tv show.
 
2014-05-13 10:31:22 AM
Don't worry, the clowns will be busy visiting their congressional districts between election cycles.
 
2014-05-13 10:32:41 AM
Seems like a reasonable request to me.
 
2014-05-13 10:42:26 AM
Are they going to stop pretending this mission is going to really happen any time soon?

Everyone will be racing to be:
The first person to have sex on Mars
The first gay couple to have sex on Mars
The first orgy on Mars
The first to masterbate on Mars

/There will be a lot of firsts doing sex on Mars

I see what you did there.

I am imagining it like the video game "Dead Space" but with clowns jumping out of dark corners instead of necromorphs.

Send him up a drink.

"Any Time Soon" being 30 years from now.

Not to worry.  If any clowns are sent into space they will be launched into the sun.

I came here to say exactly this...

GET OUT OF MY HEAD!

From TFA:

From 200,000 applications worldwide, she is now one of 54 Canadians, including two other Nova Scotian contenders, aiming to be part of a colonization drive by 2025, according to Mars One.

So, yeah.  30 years.  Math is farking hard dude.

Although doable, the Mars One project will be expensive, she said. "They say it's going to cost $6 billion."

$6 billion MIGHT get a Mars-bound vehicle designed.  Getting it to orbit and then landing it on Mars, along with the colonists and everything they need to create a base?  I don't think so.
 
2014-05-13 10:59:17 AM
For the love of all things holy, please stop refering to Mars One as a non-profit. They're fully owned and operated by the for-profit Interplanetary Media Group. This is nothing but a giant scam. All these people who applied had to pay something like a $40 application fee. Giving these guys any sort of publicity just drives me crazy.

She looks like she has an unattractive vagina.

Well 30 years or by 2025, there's still no point in pretending that picking people now for a mission that probably won't happen by either of those time frames is realistic.

So basically the are shortlisting the realy weirdos?  I'm okay with this.

Someone's got to go. You want the Russians to own the red planet?

You have to be a little crazy to want to try, anyway.

Ever heard the term 'twelve month beauty queen'? She will be revered as a goddess.

She wants share self fisting with the universe.

Great!  Now we know some of offspring of the first generation of Martians are going to be flat out ugly.

"She" has a vagina? I thought it was a Fred Armisen character. Maybe Andy Dick in drag.

All nonprofit means is it means it can avoid taxation. There's nothing holy or sacred about it.

If this is a scam then Europe will prosecute them. This was organized across the pond and I don't even know what it takes to be a nonprofit over there.

I have two entities that do nonprofit work but under for profit structures because it is less paperwork and it gives a lot more flexibility. Nobody saying that "Your funding didn't meet this formula so you are a taxable private foundation rather than a nonprofit public foundation, so here's a tax bill" and crap like that. Or getting upset because of advocating for something that someone else considers a political position. My mom ran into that as a pastor, apparently since many food banks get federal funding talking about feeding the poor in a sermon can get a church's tax exemption threatened by the IRS for political advocacy. In the realm of insurance nonprofit companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan have been hit by the FTC for market manipulation.

For profit and non profit is such a game. The question in something like this should be transparency. Do they open the books up to sponsors or do they want you to take everything on faith?
 
2014-05-13 01:02:08 PM
Are they still talking about a one-way trip? Because I have a list of people I would like to nominate.
 
2014-05-13 01:05:10 PM
They should put him in with a Juggalo. You know, for the lulz.
