Since this is supposed to be a time of sharing and whatnot, I just thought I'd throw this out there:

If anyone would like to put together a manned mission to Mars, or for that matter, Europa, Titan or Io, I'm your boy. I'll do it for FREE! That's right, folks, free! Just point me at the sky and let it fly. You don't even have to bring me back. Just try. Just send me, man. Do it.

Of course, if you want to give Shannon and our kids skads of money, that's fine too. Man, but I want to go. I think we're missing so much by relying on stupid robots. Let's GO! It's really not that hard.

Awe, you and Todd would get along so well. He is so into all that space crap (sorry). It loses me, I can fall asleep while he is watching that stuff. You sounded just like him in that post it was funny.

Is that your husband? Does he have an LJ? Space is kind of a hobby for me. I'm very interested, even though I don't know much, but I devour anything I can get my hands on.

Todd's my fiance. Should I have him create a journal so you two can talk about the stars and stuff? lol. I'm sorry, I only tease cause I can.

One time, we were camping out in the desert and one of our friends got lost, couldn't find the site. So Todd is trying to give him directions according to the stars! It was comedy.

He's good! He's my kinda guy too :)

I just can't get into that stuff, maybe cause it's so out of reach....I'm never gonna go to the moon, everything they talk about won't happen for millions of years, so it's like it doesn't exist or something. *shrug* I dunno.

Yay, space! I have to say, though, I wouldn't really want to be an astronaut. I actually looked up the requirements at NASA once, and the two biggies I don't have are: a PhD in a physical/natural science and good vision. Not like it's impossible, but unlikely.

I'd go if they wanted to send me, but otherwise robots all the way.

Stupid robots, they ruin everything.

Titan maybe, what with the atmosphere and all, but Io and Europa? My guess is Io smells like deviled egg farts and Europa is nothing but ice. It's Canada in spherical form.

Now Miranda, that's a nice place.

Well, we could send you to Io or Europa, but well, you'd die in 10 minutes due to all of the radiation. Let's send you to titan instead. You can tell us if there's land there and if there's seas of methane!

I would give my left nut to go to space, and not just because balls get in the way more than anything.

The zero G, seeing earth from space, really seeing stars for the first time, it would be like live-action porn for me, but less messy.

When I was a kid, I checked out a library book entitled "You Will Go to the Moon", basically all about being an astronaut except that there was this overriding implication that by some year that's probably already come and gone, EVERYONE would be taking trips to the moon and God knows where else.
