So apparently yesterday's Question of the Day didn't post. That explains the lack of responses. Lovely.
Question of the Day: If you could (safely) live on any other planet/celestial body in our Solar System, with all the luxuries of home, would you? And which would you pick?
All negative aspects of the planet are of no affect to you or your lifestyle. Somehow.
...Eh, probably not. I like Earth. If I did, probably one of Jupiter's Moons, cuz getting to see Jupiter so close all the time sounds awesome, though.
Well... that requires on some other factors. If it's literally just me in a station with maybe an internet connection (which would be really damn slow) then hell nah.
BUT if I would be part of a larger community, for example a few thousand people on the planet who can be traveled to with relative ease and that's economic. If you're not really cramped into a singular space with two dozen people etc. Then I'd go for Venus. There is this concept where live on Venus is possible on these floating stations, with the atmospheric density of the world it would be relatively easy to have the population centers float well above the surface. It's cool cause you could have a Cloud City like structure (with like helium balloons attached to it).
Otherwise it makes me think of a steampunk kinda world where transport with airships is highly commonplace lol
Edit: Also access to internet which has comparable lag to what I'm getting now and access to loved ones I got now.
Living on another planet is impossible if you want to compare it to now, that's why he specified that you could safely do it with all the comforts of home. Basically, the question is is there a different terrestrial body that you like more than Earth, and the answer should always be yes because the Earth is a terrible place.
As Renaria said, please refrain from double posting and use the Edit option, thank you!
Oooo cookies... Yum!
While you're here, have some of our own Gaian Chocolate Bark! *offers platter*
Question of the Day: Congratulations, you have been bestowed the honor of naming the mightiest Aircraft Carrier to ever sail the seas. What do you name it?
The SS Megalodon.
And it could be nicknamed the Mega.
In answer to the poll, I picked a combination of the above. First and foremost, I'd say Healthcare, then Transportation and Industrial Development, then Defense and Education.
Prioritize keeping people healthy, then transport and industry to keep people employed and things growing - and then Defense to keep it all defended, and Education so people can actually do all of that more effectively and advance them.
