Screw the UN space treaty. If I had bill gates' money and a team of mad scientists at my disposal, the first thing on the agenda would be getting to mars ASAP and set up a permanent manned colony. I get their first, set up the flag for BastiatLand (a constitutional republic run by a benevolent dictator) that means it's mine, right?

Only if you can defend it from the onslaught who would take it away from you.

That's what the spaceborne AA guns would be for...

I control the water...I control air. Just call me Cohagen.

Ummm.... spaceborne AA guns? Wouldn't those be AS guns?

Those sneaky Russians would land some Spetsnaz guys and knock out your water filtration and power plants...

I think ARFCOM should go there.


Since no one else would give a flying fuck, we could bitch and moan at each other to stay occupied.

Yeah, I was thinking of that as I posted, but then I didn't want to keep explaining that ASS (anti-space ship) guns were actually anti-aircraft guns

I think I started a thread on that months ago as it being Arnolds finest acting moment ever.

"Come on, Cohaagen! You got what you want. Give those people air!"

Mars would have its own Internet, plus a long distance feed that would Cache every website on earth (to get past the latency issues)

Think of it as the ultimate shooting range. The non-standard gravity and super-thin atmosphere would make for some interesting ballistics...

Already done. Lunar Embassy

The bloke basically noted that the treaty preventing territorial claims of stellar bodies said 'No government shall claim...', so he went down to the local land registry office, and as a private individual laid claim to the moon, and later expanded to the other planets, including Mars.

It is unlikely that the claim will stand (He's been selling plots of land for years, they make good novelty gifts: I have a bit on the moon myself), but if it is possible, he's done it.

NTM

They would claim that it was their homeland too.
