One time I read an article about a Russian family who fled to the forest to escape WWII. They were to afraid to return to their home, so they built a new life miles and miles and mile and miles from anyone else. They ate tree bark to survive. 60 years later they were found and had no concept of the modern world. Researchers tried to slowly acclimate them by showing them a TV and like a toaster or something, but they just wanted things to stay the way they were. Eventually the researchers just left them there.

Now it's 2013 and we can Google things from our cars. I can get online and find a picture of Christchurch, New Zealand to help me decide if I want to move there or not. We still don't have flying cities or robot maids or anything any futuristic movie from the 90s predicted. The one thing we do have is a FUTURE COLONY IN MARS. That's right. Someone in charge decided Earth wasn't exciting enough and that populating an entire colony in Mars sounded like a good idea. If you decide to move to Mars, you are basically agreeing to never return to Earth. 30 years from now, they'll probably be fighting a war with us for their sovereignty. Yes, we are England in this scenario. 'Mars.

Apparently Utah is considered to be "sufficiently Mars-like", so I'm basically already living there. It definitely feels like another planet out here. 

Screw it. Let's all move to Mars. 
Pin It!
