You just want to get rid of me  sad24:
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

I can make a list of those I want strapped to the front of the probe.  Keith Vaz, Putin, Boris Johnson and Donald Trump for a start

Well, whatever nevermind

Even when I applied I was half expecting something like this to happen, the Mars One venture has gone bankrupt.

It does appear that I may have been part of a much smaller group of maniacs adventurers who signed up though...  rubschin:

Shame in a way but they had the wrong business plan.  If they'd asked for crowdfunding to send Corbers, Abbott, Boris and Trump there (other names are available) they'd have all the money they needed

Well, whatever nevermind
