Have you read the book Packing for Mars? http://www.maryroach.net/packing-for-mars

"Space is a world devoid of the things we need to live and thrive: air, gravity, hot showers, fresh produce, privacy, beer. Space exploration is in some ways an exploration of what it means to be human. How much can a person give up? How much weirdness can they take? What happens to you when you can’t walk for a year? have sex? smell flowers? What happens if you vomit in your helmet during a space walk? Is it possible for the human body to survive a bailout at 17,000 miles per hour? To answer these questions, space agencies set up all manner of quizzical and startlingly bizarre space simulations. As Mary Roach discovers, it’s possible to preview space without ever leaving Earth. From the space shuttle training toilet to a crash test of NASA’s new space capsule (cadaver filling in for astronaut), Roach takes us on a surreally entertaining trip into the science of life in space and space on Earth."

I think I'll stay.

RE: Living on Mars
I've actually been thinking really deeply about this the past few days. (Not sure why)

Back when the opportunity to sign up was presented, I decided that I wouldn't go solely because I want to make my movies and such. With my life being what it is, however, if I had no desire to pursue my artistic goals, you can bet your ass I would want to be on that flight. I'd even give Earth the finger as we flew off into space. lol

As it stands, though, I'm elated to know that this is being pursued and I'm more than happy to watch it unfold.

Through profound pain comes profound knowledge.

Have you read Red Mars, Green Mars, and Blue Mars? I'd like to go.

Yeah, but at several minutes delay.

It varies from 3 to 21 minutes. And there is a blackout region when the sun intervenes (solar conjunction) lasting nearly a month.

A few minutes isn't bad.
