Huh. Interesting.
I don't think I'll read the comments, tho.

Should MEN send men to mars, should MEN send women to mars or should MEN send men and women to mars? It looks like MEN have some decisions to make.



yep

Well that depends...

Will they be coming back or not?

Naw.. they'll just be scissoring back and forth

The forst mission to mars should be comprised of the best candidates. So long as all the sex and race quotas are reached who cares about that kind of shit?

It's a known fact that Mars needs them.

Also, you only have to pay them 77% as much.

It should be all qualified candidates. Who gives a shit.

Who is more qualified than an Alpha MALE, amiright?

*sigh* Gmork, did you even watch the video? He's presenting a technical argument *about* qualifications; qualifications are the whole point.

Now, I can't say I'm convinced by his points about macular degeneration, particularly in light of the cavalier manner with which he brushes off the counter-arguments about radiation. He also failed to convinced me with his psychological argument; early on he admits that NASA has never found any psychological differences between the sexes, and different results from different agencies could very well be the byproduct of the local recruiting environment... assuming their data was even accurate to begin with.

However, the point Mr Space Time makes about food intake is considerably stronger. That is not something which can easily be dismissed; after all, "fat people" are even less desirable in space than they are on Earth!!! If a short, skinny woman can be sent to Mars on 5 billion dollars less worth of food-and-fuel than a tall strapping man, then that is indeed something well worth considering.

This isn't to say that men should be disqualified from the mission, of course! But I think it's reasonable for prospective candidates to be tested and judged on how well they can abstain from gluttony and eat like a healthy human being.

One white woman (not lesbian) to be the intrepid leader

One white man to serve as white womans love interest/comic foil

One black man (can be gay for character complexity) to sacrifice himself heroically to save one or both of the above two white characters

One young, hip white person to be good with computers (can be male or female, neon dyed hair is a requirement)

One asain character to for kung fu/karate (male or female, sword skills a must)

One older white male character to have suspicious alterior motives and maybe try and kill the crew

A robot to get the crew out of impossible situations with an infinitely deep supply of previously undiscussed powers/abilities (male, female or dog voiced by andy dick)

what's with all the random fast-forward scrub effects, which even happen mid-paragraph sometimes?

Better yet, send a bunch of unruly kids up there with a conch shell.

Indeed! Why should it be any different than what's down here?
