Would you go to the Moon if they built a colony? To just visit for a while, despite the dangers?

Would you go to Mars to help establish or grow a colony, knowing the dangers and that you could never return?

Moon? Are you ****ing kidding? Way too scary there.

Mars: Only if they can reconnect my vas deferens.

Good for anyone seeking a location without the prospect of an extradition treaty!

No way mate. We wasted Australia on crims before. Can't make that mistake again.

Wonder what the premium and tax free salary would be to work on Mars ?

I dont suppose they would be setting up any hedge funds within the first year or 2 of landing there ?

What would you need the money for? You're not coming back...

It's tax free, 1,000,000,000 a year salary. The currency on Mars is 'Scamps' with them broken down into 'Scampinis'.

Sandwich and a coke? 14 Scamps 50 Scampinis please.

Wonderful place, Mars.

There's got to be a good come-back to that, but not too obvious. I'm guessing you've already thought of it ...
