    I'd rather spend the rest of my days with the ones I know than the mind-numbing knuckledraggers in my town.  There's never a dull moment.

      But I gotta say, it would be a totally different breed of astronaut / person who accepted a lifetime posting on Mars.  And what might look good at 25 might not seem so good at 45, stuck on a distant planet, with a finite group of Adam and Eve'ers.

      Maybe a Mormon colony on Mars?  Or a very tribal, socially isolated society like that...but me and my clan?  No way.
