comment Earthling/s equivalent for Mars and Venus
For what it's worth, I'd be surprised to see Terran outside of a sci fi story. We more often use Terrestrial for Earth-based life, or Earthling for people specifically.

comment Earthling/s equivalent for Mars and Venus
A bit, although it's not clear what makes this answer stand out from the others, and the list of quotes seems more random than authoritative. I'm not sure what's the point of it; perhaps make that explicit?

comment A word for old-fashioned, dirty bar/place (spit-and-sawdust)
@PatrickM Agreed, for some values of old fashioned. If you mean more like Baby Boom old fashioned, then those connotations of saloon would be problematic. But +1 anyway because this might be exactly what the OP was looking for.

@RyeɃreḁd Yes, love the movie. And that's exactly why “dump” is good for a bar/place, it can apply to a dive or a greasy spoon.
