    Death of wife inspires Singapore man to apply for trip to Mars
    inSing.com - 14 May 2013 2:43 PM | Updated 3:42 PM

    [​IMG]<cite style="display: block; font-style: normal; font-size: 10px; margin: 4px 0px;">Singaporean “Robinson” is inspired to live on Mars permanently after wife dies (Photo: Screen grab from Mars One)</cite>
    A 53-year-old Singaporean man has responded to a mission by a private organisation to send a human being on a no-return trip to Mars.

    The mission, named Mars One, aims to set up a permanent human colony on the red planet and is targeted to launch in 2023.

    The profile of the Singaporean, who gave his name only as “Robinson”, can be seen on the Mars One website.

    He said he was inspired to get a one-way ticket to Mars and live permanently there because his “beloved wife … passed away a year ago”.

    He is one of 78,000 applicants from 120 countries who have sent in their applications to the website of the Dutch non-profit company.

    He had to pay an application fee of US$46 (S$57) to submit his initial application.

    The fee varies among countries, ranging from US$5 to US$73, depending on the gross domestic product (GDP) of the country.

    A DREAM


    "Space travel has always been my dream," Singaporean “Robinson” writes.

    He adds that he is "very healthy” and “is still able to complete a full marathon within five hours".

    Running, unicycling and working are some of his interests and he claims as his talent his ability to “mimic words spoken by people around this part of the region.”

    By 2023, all his children will have grown up and he will be left alone, but he still hopes to live a meaningful life, which makes him the perfect candidate for Mars, he adds.

    If successful, “Robinson” will be one of 50 to 100 candidates who are deemed “the most committed, creative, resilient and motivated applicants”.

    He will undergo four rounds in a selection process that will come to an end in 2015.

    By then, the number of candidates will be whittled down from 40 to 28.

    SEVEN YEARS OF TRAINING


    This final group will undergo seven years of training, after which a global audience will elect the final envoys of humanity to Mars.

    Mars One has already generated more than 60,600 'likes' on Facebook.

    Its introductory video on YouTube has been viewed more than 1.2 million times.

    The website states that this decade-long undertaking will be funded by selling televised broadcasts of every aspect of the mission – from choosing the astronauts to their preparations, to their arrival on Mars to their lives on the red planet.

    (Editor’s note: If anyone knows “Robinson”, tell him that inSing News would love to hear from him. Drop us an email at

    I dedicate this great song by David Bowie to "Robinson".

    And to anyone else who would like to go to Mars or think there is life on mars.
    May they find what they are looking for. :D

    With age, my sex drive goes lower. Last night went out with one PRC girl, not bad looking one. Petite size, wear white spag dress, white bra and white lacy cotton panty. Totally my vegetable. The moment I saw her, lan jiao hard immediately. Happily go to H81, eagerly buy one packet of 003, thinking can finish.

    Round one, ask her to give me a bbbj, then she let me CIM. Super song. Now, the problem come liao. My cock used to be able to stay hard after the 1st shot or regain glory within 5-10 mins. But knn, this time round, rest 45 minutes also cannot hard again.

    Bo bian, don't want to waste the 003. Asked her bbbj me again, luckily got hard again. Finally managed to use 1 piece of 007 :eek: :D

    Dunno what is wrong with me. I used to be able to fuck 1-2 hours each time, 5-7 times a day. Nowadays, I only think of making money. Make love totally no urge :(
