It does, but they're co-official. Liberian figures are purely metric and soon Myanma ones will be too.

Well, one thing that will happen on Mars, a hundred times more often than it happens here, is cancer. You would have to live at least five meters underground and only come up for short periods of time to avoid cancer. Here on Earth, you get about 7 mSv [millisieverts] of ionizing radiation a year [and you still have a 20% chance of dying of cancer if you are a non-smoker]. On the surface of Mars, you would get 600 to 800 mSv a year of ionizing radiation. If you are a woman, you would probably want to get a double mastectomy and a complete hysterectomy before you go because two of the biggies from ionizing radiation are breast cancer and ovarian cancer.

On the other hand, we could all stay here on Earth and tell the believers that the Second Coming of Christ is going to occur on Mars. . .

How about don't fuck up one of the initial mission to get there, so we don't have to watch some Tom Hanks also-ran (I'm looking at you Shia LaBeouf Dodgy ) staring in a movie about their intrepid survival against all odds compounded by human error.

Somehow, I think this will be less of an issue on Mars... Consider

Just you wait till we've got terraforming worked out and start importing animals to Mars as well as humans.

Then this will probably seem hilariously depressing in hindsight.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

If that really bothers you, have a wee dram and relax.
