    Even tho i'd never pass any fitness test these days i'd still be the first one to get the frack off this planet. As long as i have a PC to play with and an internet connection i'd be gone. Maybe 6G will work from the surface of Mars. Latency would suck but eventually there would be enough people there to start a new web.
