Is coming to spend time in China (where everything is different) the closest you'll get to that on earth?

Mars One is a scam or a publicity stunt, really. They recruit people before having designed and tested the shelters to be dropped on Mars, before having the design of the space-ship, before knowing how they are going to put in orbit that vessel... You don't go to Mars in tongs with your towel on the shoulder.

Some people will do anything to get out of China. No visa requirements either. And don't you mean the first Hunan settlement on Mars?

My application was rejected because I wasn't stupid enough...

 

the people who will eventually go will be used as guinea pigs for all sorts of experiments, and these same people will be none the wiser.

 

...I'll watch from below.

If that ever happens, this will be the beginning of the Borg Empire. I know it's true. The Chinese would love to have enhanced Apple products surgically implanted in their butt, arms and face. This also explains why the Borg have a hive mentality and are always sleeping while standing at their stations.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
