I'll Be a Virgle Pioneer!

Well, Google has done it again, and yet again, I’m on board. Just today Virgin and Google announced their plan to put a permanent human colony on Mars: aka Project Virgle. Here’s the video about the project:

Interested? You bet I am! Linden, will you join me?

At the Virgle site, you can learn how to become a Virgle Pioneer, test your Pioneering potential, or join the Mission Control community that will help develop the 100 Year Plan they’ve outlined.

I just took the initial Virgle personality test, and here were my results:

Well, you’re distressingly normal and could conceivably adjust to life as a deep space pioneer, though we recommend instead that you leave the Mars missions to the serious whack jobs who scored over 130 and instead finish year 3 of law school, tuck your toddler into bed, design Web 2.0 applications, run for Congress or do whatever other normal, healthy, middle-of-the-road thing you’re currently doing with your normal, healthy, middle-of-the-road life.

They certainly don’t look promising, but I think I can charm the Virgle folks with my great personality and good looks! Whaddya think?

  1. Even my hip hop blog Highbrid Nation had to report on project Virgle. If it is indeed real, then it is huge and is major in the area of space exploration. However I fear that it is indeed and elaborate April Fool’s Day hoax. I guess we’ll know for sure if announcements continue after today. Personally I’d love to see the two companies team up considering what they already have done with the Lunar X Prize and Virgin Galactic.

  2. I’m pretty sure this is an April Fool’s Day joke…I’m just trying to further the cause!

  3. I had been working hard and decided to allow myself 5 minutes in Google Reader for a little break. I got to the personality test before I realized that Google had done it again! No fair playing on my childhood dream! 🙂

    I even reminding myself last night that I would not allow myself to be duped by Google again. *sigh* Maybe next year…
