Via jaylake , science-fiction writer David D. Levine has just begun a two-week stint at the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah, which simulates life in a first-generation Mars habitat.

Inspired, I have decided to conduct my own two-week life-on-Mars simulation. Being an impatient guy, however, I have opted for a far-future, post-colonial Mars with a fully terraformed atmosphere, hot running water, weekly garbage pickup, and Netflix.

Wish me Godspeed!

Now I'm tempted to try spending two weeks in a simulated 70s Manchester.

Dont forget...
So, are you taking some swim-trunks? Why are they called swim 'trunks' anyway? Are regular shorts needing to be called 'trunks'? Tell Kuato I said hi.
