Lets try that again......when we go to Mars, lets get it right this time
I was talking with a friend the other day and we were discussing Mars and about how cool it will be in the future when we finally get some settlements up and running smoothly. And then we started talking about things that we hope DON"T happen there like they do here on Earth.

For instance-
--Daylight Savings Time- set the clocks--let them be, none of this switching them twice a year....just deal with it.

--Use the metric system-- everyone measures things same way

--clothes--sold by measurement--not by some arbitrary size scale that changes by manufacturer.

--religion--a given-- leave it at home.


anything to add?

Make a new/pick an existing God and stick with it. No having a million different religions/sections of religion, then killing each other over it.

...no religion would be nice, but the human race isn't ready for that yet.

Getting everyone to agree on atheism would be like herding sheep without a dog.

Getting everyone to agree on a single religion would be like herding cats. With a dog.

So many cats, so few good recipes.

If that happens, Mars looks like the place to be.

Not entirely sure I agree with the analogy, though I don't feel like hijacking the thread Tongue

Well, the axial tilt of Mars is 25° to Earth's 23°, so seasonal variation is actually slightly more extreme. And the day is ~24.5 hours long. And the orbit is much more eccentric, so seasons aren't equal in length...

Not that DST isn't stupid (it very much is). But we'll need a whole new system of timekeeping.

I think we need to have some sort of 'Don't be a dick" test at the door....Dodgy...with a bouncer or something..... Consider maybe a quiz? is pot bad or is it ok in moderation? how many times do you post 'cunt' in a thread? you know.....just a little test to weed out the buzz killers.
