Fantastic.  I'm jealous,

I find it amazing I could make it to round 2 of Mars One yet never been able to start a family. In many ways I am jealous the other way around, but either way is a rewarding adventure!
 

Gratz!

First off, congrats to you!

Congratulations!

Gratz!

I mean, congratulations!

Thank you.
 

Wow. Is this for real?

Yes. But no NASA rescue missions; we are already resigned to die on Mars.
 

How about your engine and your firm?

10 years of training while still on Earth gives me plenty of time to finish the engine before I go, but I will still have some programming project to do while on Mars. Probably related to hacking.
And I can forget about starting a company if I am going to Mars.
 

1,058 successful applicants? Surely they could have culled another 34.

At first I wondered from where that arbitrary number came as well, but it makes sense not to prioritize a simple number (which is arbitrary no matter how it is chosen) over “take as many as we need to reasonably guarantee there will be enough left after all the tests to actually have someone to send.”
And lots will be cut.
 

Why, I imagine a thread about the Martian dating scene will be following in due course.

“And then she e-mailed me to say, ‘Before we meet, I need to tell you, I have 3 arms.’”
 

Extra-extra-extra-nervous if that organization is willing fill that space shuttle with a "Medical Abomination" with no legs?

Did I not make it very clear in that topic that that was all for the filming of a TV show?
My legs are fine. I said clearly in that topic another chat room that I was just sitting on my feet (I thought I said I was sitting on my feet here, but looking back it seems everyone understood it was just staged for a TV show and I didn’t need to explain it here).
Come on kids.
