Absolutely, but as long as I can breathe.

Does this offer also come with the ability to live either forever or at least for a really long fuckin' time?

Because the cosmos is kinda big. Without the lifespan bit as part of the deal it's kind of a shit option.

But otherwise sure, I'd be down. And then I'd leave notes and markers and shit for mankind to find later on with details of the stuff I've discovered. Help us all out even if I can't do it directly.

No. If I wanted to explore shit I'd start with the planet I've already got.

So I can go with people, they just have to be complete strangers to me?

It's tempting.

But the value of the familiar, the the streets and shores of the two towns of my childhood, my friends and my family... They are my soul.

So...in essence...any guy that takes the deal and does this...is...

He's writing the first layman's edition of the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Universe. Like if they invented the travel tips before they invented the book.

He will be famous.

>>14189161
>there's some cool shit
"Cool shit" is rather nebulous. What if the guy who takes the deal is a troll and it's really full of super space monsters?
Or what if it's some alien narcotic, where in the future, mankind has moved on beyond such pitiful things like physiologically-active drugs, and onto PSYCHIC DRUGS, or the vice versa situation?
Or what if it's just some nice scenery? There's going to be a lot of angry treasure hunters after that.

Dont believe OP, its a FAKE.

>> No.14190603

>>14188913
Because space is boring as shit.

Ever been on an airplane? Sure it's fun for the first few minutes, but after a few hours it becomes painfully boring. Now imagine that but with no changing scenery below you, only distant stars that you will never come close to. Remember 2001: A Space Odyssey, in the scene where the astronaut gets birthday wishes from earth and then goes back to his boring existence on the ship?

People here are imagining visiting new planets, making contact with aliens and such, but what's the likelihood of that actually happening? It's like those people who sign up for the army thinking that they will fight face to face with the enemy when they'll probably do a whole lot of sitting around doing nothing and then get blown up by an IDE. You'll probably just be floating through space for a long fucking time, trying to keep yourself occupied with games and books and craving human contact.

Look at it this way: If you can skip from destination to destination in light-speed travel while in cryo-hibernation, where cell deformation ceases, you can possibly live forever. The only time you will age are during the few days or weeks out of Cryo and exploring shit. But you will age and decompose really, really fast if you die while exploring.

I'm pretty sure OP implies that you would have a set of supernatural powers suited for "cosmic exploration." Otherwise this question is a waste of time.

I've said before and will continue to say that I would be willing to volunteer for a one-man, one-way mission to Mars in the name of inspiring Man to explore the Cosmos.

I mean, I'd expect at least some promise that you guys would at least try to supply me with food, water, air, and whatnot so I could transmit inspiring messages of hope whenever I was in range, but I understand if that's not a promise you can keep.

My answer is yes, as long as I have two points.

Is this supposed to be tempting? What am I supposed to see out there, stars? Clouds of gas? Aliens who don't even feel the same emotions as I do? Is this supposed to be more important to me than what I'd be leaving behind?

I'm still learning new things about my wife, my children are less than 10 years old, I'm not even 30 yet. What the hell would I want to leave this behind for, so that I can go freeze alone in the void looking at matter moving around for the rest of eternity?

Everything I've ever known? That's a bit of an odd stipulation. Giving up everything I've ever known would be tantamount to killing myself, which would make the entire gesture meaningless. Existing in bored misery still sucks marginally less than not existing.

No. There's so much of Earth that I don't know squat about nor have I ever even seen; why leave all that behind for a chance to fly through some space dust?

>> No.14195174

>>14195133
I guess. It's hard to be where I am, look back, and imagine giving up that chance forever. But even barring that whole family thing, can you imagine the loneliness? The lack of human relation? Sure there might be aliens, and some of them might even be sapient, but you'd be out there forever, knowing that you're never going to see another human being again. Never going to be able to tell someone that you feel, say, nostalgic, and have them really understand what you mean.
Never to watch Jeeves and Wooster again. Never to kiss a woman again. Never to even see a real smile again, or look into another human's eyes again.

Maybe I'm just the wrong breed of person for this kind of question, but to me this sounds like a proposition of torture. This is like being offered hell, and then I look around and see people accepting, and I have to wonder if they know something I don't.

>> No.14195246

Space is a big, boring, empty place to mine more minerals and construct additional pylons.

It takes decades to get from one boring, empty star system to the next.

This is basically asking to get shut in a small room for the rest of your life with nothing to do but look at the night sky until you die.

That's because some people are thinking of the fantasy setting "Space", which is small enough to drive across in a month and chock full of sexy alien girls and adventure, and other people are thinking of the real outer space in our actual universe, which is a vast dead void.

>> No.14195305

The OP make it sound I would be travelling "Silver Surfer" style.. very fast, but not instantly. I will be probably long lived, but not immortal.

I guess I would enjoy the scenery for a while but humans are know to go batshit insane being alone for long stretchs of time.

I'd accept if I could meet new alien forms, since I am not sure they exist, I'd humbly decline because it sounds like a death sentence.

I'd go if I had at least something to fight the roneriness.

>> No.14195315

Depends on my transportation and if I am given the gift of extended life. Slow transportation and normal life means that I am fucked. Even at near light it would take a human lifetime to get anywhere.
Or, if I get to be a belter. Being a belter would be badass.
