    Cool I don't belong on earth anymore...

    I mean, I've been here almost half a century. I don't know. It's all gotten so easy, you know? The oxygen, the water, the fruit trees, the Goldilocks zone. Meh. I'm bored. I mean, I've done it all. I've frolicked in green fields. I swam in the oceans and I've flown through blue skies. But the challenge just isn't there anymore.

    The earth? It's so... predictable.

    So I was looking for recommendations. Mars is oxygen starved, lacks a magnetosphere and the soil is basted in ultra-violet, but somehow Mars seems to Earth-like. Sort of like going from XP to Cinnamon, if you know what I mean. I was thinking, maybe, something along the lines of Titan: vast expanses of methane seas with a surface variance of less than a few millimeters -- methane precipitation and ice that's harder than granite. Or maybe Venus, cloud formations of sulfuric acid and 900 plus degree surface temperatures - but somehow - Venus is just... well... so 20th century.

    I've heard there are some startlingly extreme exo-planets, sort of like trying an obscure BSD, Bodhi-Linux or Haiku.

    Have you got an extreme exo-planet you can recommend?

    Well, Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids. It's lonely, and cold as hell. Or so I hear.

    Meh, they say the same thing about Greenland. How different can it be?

    Jupiter or any other gas giant should be a good place to walk on cloud nine, but if you are looking for a more exotic place you should try Solaris.

    You always go to Pluto. It's a dwarf planet now right?

    Depends on what you're looking for. Dagobah is an isolated swamp planet where you could spend your time alone. The MuLinux and Yellow Dogs, the guys that roll their own distros.


    However if you prefer to be in the center of it all and study culture and politics, then Coruscant is your destination. Kind of the Ubuntu of planets, the one that draws people from all over.
    Knock knock.
    Race condition.
    Who's there?
