April Fool!

This is the best public April Fool's prank in a long time. Today, Google announced they're going to set up a colony in Mars:

All you have to do to apply is make a video and upload it to youtube.com explaining why you want to go! And then your video is available for all to see...

Check out people's videos explaining why they want to be selected to go to Mars:

Some people were serious, others were creative, and others came up with some funny reponses (like the one guy who begs Google to please take his dog).

Enjoy!

Happy April Fool's Day!

This is awesome. I think the best part is probably the "100 year plan" complete with artist's renderings and maps. http://www.google.com/virgle/plan_1.html
