How they going to sort the demographics?  Once upon a time it'd have been 12 blokes, 12 wimmin of child bearing age but there's be so many objections to that now.  Have to have at least 1 gay, 1 sheep for the Welshman and a spare wife or two for the Mormon

So chances are you'd get an ugly one
Well, whatever nevermind

There isn't any mention of it but I think the demographics for the first team are going to be geared exclusively towards setting up the site rather than any specific balance as the plan is to send consecutive flights out every 2 years.

I do have one question though, if this is un-islamic on the grounds that killing yourself is forbidden in the Koran how the hell do they explain why there are so many suicide bombers?  Banghead

Its all about usurping power, if the faith gets in the way of those bastard leaders then it is sidelined

What I can never work out is why no groomed suicide bomber has ever seemed to have the nerve to say "oh leader deny yourself no more, it's your turn to enjoy martyrdom with those virgins."
