Life on Mars

Going to Mars, once the novelty wore off, would be far worse that being stuck in the French Foreign Legion or the South Pole, or prison for the rest of your life. It would be cramped, smelly and boring, with no guarantee supplies will come. You would forgo all the pleasures of nature. The only plus I can think of is that selfish, rude people would not be allowed to come. I hope they are not too squeamish about suicide. The optimists who will apply will be prone to be terminally disappointed.
