That's actually not a bad idea. Given a supply of birth control pills (to smooth out the hormones, obviously), women might do better in a test like this. Women have spikier aggression cycles than men, but they don't happen as often. Men have the aggro all the time.LTK_70 said:Makes me wonder which gender will be able to put up with each other for longer. A group of men in a confined space, or a group of women?
I hope they're taking some video games. This could be the best LAN party EVAR!!
Online gaming isn't an option because of lag, but I assume data xmit rates aren't terrible? I'm wondering if the actual mars mission will be able to get new entertainment software, movies, music, etc? Entertainment is a reasonable hedge against ennui.
Or they could just bring the Bard's Tale series. That will take 500 days.
[edit: Has anyone thought of making a reality show of this? Discovery seems to be having no problems finding viewers for "Deadliest Lobster Wars" or whatnot]
