I was gonna change the name of the show to "E.S.O-Yeh Radio"

I stepped out this morning to head for the P.O. -- turned right around
and went back inside for my EVA suit (extra-vehicular activity -- fancy
term for space suit). The air has a feel to it that I have experienced
only a few times in my life. 8 degrees or something. Much colder, and
metal things like car door handles will snap off in your hand.
"COOOOL!" It was like this for long stretches in South Dakota when I
lived there. You just plain don't even try to make it from the airlock
to the ship without the suit. If your suit heating unit battery dies
before you get the car warmed up, you're a goner.

It was like this in Dallas when I lived there, but the opposite, in the
summer. You'd suit up and RUSH from your front door to any waiting car,
turn on the car and A.C. full blast, then run back through the airlock
to the house A.C. while you let the car cool down enough for you to
touch the steering wheel without it cooking your hands to it. Really it
wasn't so much the heat, which was merely painful, but the radiation,
which caused permanent damage. Just hanging one arm out the window for
a couple of hours while you drive will earn you enough roentgens to
give you radiation sickness.

Oddly enough, when I was a brown froggy 8 year old boy in Fort Worth we
hardly noticed the heat, and the radiation only seemed to make us
stronger. Any snow at all would kill us as sure as sunlight kills a
vampire, though.

I've been looking at the Mars pictures. They make me feel comfortable,
safe, not to hot, not too cold, plenty of air, endless water, and well
EARTH 1 ("Mars").
