Love that analogy!

That's pretty much what someone did at an office I worked before.
They had a system where someone could call IT to say they forgot their password, which resulted in their account being locked and a new password was generated. What this person did was to call IT as the last thing before he went home, said he forgot his PW, had his account locked, then next morning he would show up, pick up his password "for the day", enter it, shredder the paper it was printed on, do his stuff, call IT at noon with a lost password...
He pretty much got away with it because he had the agreement with IT that they wouldn't cause a stir and he won't tell anyone about his trick to avoid memorizing passwords with ridiculous requirements.
Chances are good that you're as creative as 99% of the pet owners out there and picked the name for your pooch from a rather small pool of possible choices.
Like, say, text message transaction codes sent to a smartphone used to do online banking.
And please don't think nobody would be stupid enough to do that.
Since it's not clear from your post, have you actually played NMS?
The reason that most people essentially max out tech on their first planet isn't because they're "completionists", it's because there's so little content in the game. NMS is an "everything can be found everywhere in bulk" sort of game. Including tech blueprints.
So how do you imagine that miners on Mars will be competitive without actually having mining equipment
It's not a comparison of mining equipment or no mining equipment - it's a comparison of A) automated, self-maintaining, may-not-get-damaged-or-it's-lost-forever mining equipment or B) human-controlled, human-maintained, human-salveagable mining equipment. In an environment where the premise is that humans already are.
The robots that are outcompeting them are on Mars, and orbiting Jupiter taking pictures, oh, and orbiting the earth transmitting signoals around and doing science and stuff.
Because there are no humans there. What about this is hard for you to understand? I'll repeat: there is precisely one place in the solar system where humans exist outside of Earth: ISS. Do robots outcompete them there - yes or no?
The best numbers I could find is that the annual cost of the ISS
Red herring. We're comparing to a scenario where humans are on Mars either way. Talking about the cost of putting people on Mars, keeping them alive, etc, is irrelevant because that is planned either way. The question at hand is, is it cheaper to use their already present labour, or send robots? And it's a no contest comparison.
There's three possible kinds of security factors. Something you know, something you have and something you are (or, more cynically, something you can forget, something you can lose and something that can be chopped off). They all have their advantages and disadvantages, but saying that one is superior to the others is simply and plainly wrong.
And the key reason, btw, why pages don't do it is simple: When people forget their password, resetting that is easy (plus they get your email address so you can reset it in the first place), but if you lose the token...
Space exploration is no spectator sport. It's a bit like hacking. Why do you think Hollywood has the urge to spice it up with bullshit?
No problem there. Get the fuck out of society if you aren't willing to do your share.
Your forced labor example falls flat considering that the main reason people are unemployed is that there simply is no work to be done.
Are you stupid or high?
Doing A does not mean doing B just because it sounds similar. You download a movie, so you're stealing, so you will rob a bank tomorrow. Right?
The environmental calamity will be your least concern considering that
a) You have a bunker
b) everyone else doesn't
c) but they know what you got in there
Sure, blame us instead of the rich.
If there was a justice, anti-vaccers would not be protected by herd immunity.
Your right of self-determination ends where it becomes a liability to the rest of society. If you are a selfish enough asshole that you don't give a shit about the rest of society, get the fuck out of it!
What this country needs is a dime that will buy a good five-cent bagel.
