1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Apparently this is a very real question currently being asked: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-22146456

    A one way ticket to help settle Mars. Sounds like a risky thing at this point but the first group is bound to go down in history. Anyone here up for that kind of commitment?

    If I could find good work there, why not. I moved from the UK to China, maybe moving to Mars is the next step for me.

    Oh fuck yes. If there's anyone who should be called on to populate another planet it's me.

    I'm pretty happy that I can wear my Alden's outside without a spacesuit on.

    Of all the stupid reasons to throw your life away, doing so in order to have a spot on the next big reality series is about as stupid as it gets.

    I prefer planets with magnetospheres. Keeps my cosmic radiation exposure to a minimum.

    You probably will not, however, there's a reasonable chance that your grandchildren will. Of course they may have a couple of abnormalities of their own...

    Mars' gravity is less than 40% of Earth's. long term prognosis of anybody living there ain't good. Nobody thinks about this. Personally I'd stick to L5.

    If I had no fiancee and most my family were dead I would seriously consider it.

    Let the global elite move there first since they deem earth over-populated. Be a good example for the rest.

    No.

    Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids...in fact its cold as hell.
