If you were on the first manned mission to Mars...
and en route, let's say about halfway there, all of your crew members (except for you) went crazy and started trying to cannibalize each other, what would be your weapon of choice?


Personally, I would pull out my MP3 player, set it to NSync's Greatest Hits, set the volume to full blast, then hide it in a hard to reach corner of the airlock and watch from the safety of the control room as my crew mates fall into my trap as they try to shut it off. Evil_monster

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

I would blow up the ship.

Somebody else' sharpened femurs. The medium is the message.

Actually, I'd go for the oxygen. Just turn it down and watch them topple over. You evolved in an oxygen-rich environment so your body has no Low-O2 sensor. The urge to breath is caused by a build-up of CO2. Replace the O2 with N2 and they'll never know what hit them. Do it carefully and you might not even kill them.

Then you can put on a respirator, move them all to a secure end of the ship, turn the O2 back on and sell the resulting security footage as the newest and greatest reality TV series. Just make sure none of them survive to run for president.

RE: If you were on the first manned mission to Mars...
That seems incredibly unrealistic situation.
In what situation would I EVER be the only sane one in the room?

Now if your question was "If you were on a trip to Mars and you went crazy, what would your weapon of choice be?" then we could talk.

I used to teach self-defense to dependents when I was on active duty. I told them that their primary weapons was always their own mental attitude. Training plus the confidence to use that training was a major factor in the use reports that filtered back to me in later years.

So, my weapon of choice would be me. Read Stand on Zanzibar.

Various herbs and spices and olive oil. I would sprinkle them on the others while they sleep so I would comparatively be the least appetizing crew member. Mean while, I'd squirrel away all of the food they weren't eating. I'd hide from them until there's just one left. Then, I'd try to lure him or her out into the air lock with some of that food I'd saved.
