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.

QOTD: I would pick some random asteroid that nobody else can fit on. Basically, the exact opposite of the answer before me.

Hey guys, sorry for missing the last two weekly telegrams. Life has been really busy for me lately, but I'm on a week break now, so the weekly telegram will be back next Wednesday!

Bye-Bye Earth. Hello house on Earth!

QOTD: Probably Jupiter. Idk, just seems cool. What I'd really like though is to live on Earth that isn't being murdered by humanity

Arudis congrats on becoming WAD once again!

Penguins.

Polar Bears win in a fight
Penguins are cuter
Polar Bears are just cooler in general, so I'm gonna pick Polar Bears since I don't know the reasoning I'm supposed to be using XD

Same, Earth is the only planet we know, and I donít think living on another planet is a change that our human brains can process yet.

Agreed. Now if QOTD was about visiting another planet safely, man, that would be a hard choice. They're all so cool, but living on another planet seems a bit daunting.

Hey! In all due respect, could you refrain from double-posting?

Thanks! :)

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.

D V wrote:Question of the Day: Penguins or Polar Bears?

For what purpose?

Looking at? Polar bears.
Riding into battle? Polar bears.
A tasty snack? Penguins.
A forbidden love affair? Hell, let's do both.

*comes here to greet our new embassy and give cookies to try to convert y'all to the cookie cult*
*sees this*

It would be better if we could send as many people as we want to another planet, we choose who, and they screw up that planet.

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?

Hmmmm.
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.

The PeePeePooPoo Aircraft. The PeePeePooPoo is used to make others laugh. If it is being used to attack. The enemies have a chance at laughing making them a easier shot.

First off, since when does an aircraft carrier sale the oceans? Secondly in response to the actual question: the Apex.
