    A pet rock to be precise.

    The Fark bylaws allow for repeat stories as long as they do not occur:

    a) in the same tab

    b) more than once per lunar month

    c) if the Duty Administrator feels like it

    Might I recommend a that thorough reading of the bylaws be placed on your busy schedule?

  • When was August 2012 again?
     
  • Call back when you get a Martian upskirt and we'll talk.

    Hey Look! Its a rock! but it looks like its smiling so its got to be an alien!
     
  • It's cool enough we've got a farking robot on another planet, but these yahoos just have to act like their special and they have special, unique knowledge regarding Mars
     
  • Kids in future science classes will look back on the time that the Mars rover was sending back data and will think that it must have been an awesome time to live in.

    Heh.
     
  • I'm sure most of those sightings are just streetlights..Martian streetlights..

    /somebody had to say it
     
  • I'm waiting for Curiosity to come upon tire tracks and a used rubber.

    Heh.


    Nah, they will be able to go there with their flying cars anytime they want.
     
  • We keep landing space junk on the God of War and there's gonna be trouble.

    /just sayin'
     
  • Everyone just has to be such a snob. Liz and Dick was a good, entertaining movie for what it was. And for the record, if Lohan wants to drink 2 liters of vodka and f*ck all day over at my crummy place, then come on over girl and I'll sling the ham until that thing looks like 2 pounds of shredded pork in a 1 pound bag.
     
  • Thanks. I feel much more stupid now subby.


    /Thought that was impossible...
     
  • Why Lindsay Lohan? Kim Kardshian never gets any attention!
     
  • Yeah, that's really fascinating.
     
  • Cythraul: That looks like a rock.


    as strong as it could be.
     
  • first of all ,what does any of this Mars nonsense have to do with Linsey?
    Shes a talented artist who suffers for her craft.Jealous much?

    All these 'anomolies' have more to do with combating waning interest in a real space program than anything else.If NASA still had a vigorous manned exploration program they wouldnt need to drum up these bogeys to keep americas attention.

    Better with Mars where they can't do any real damage than with politics and electing them to office.

    She is? I thought she was being primed as a harvest sacrifice.

    I'm hoping that the privatization of extra-atmospheric travel will lead to some major breakthroughs in technology. Wishful thinking perhaps, but let's face it - it tends to be the people who are looking to make a buck who make the best technological discoveries.

    On the whole though I agree with you. We shouldn't have a rover on Mars - we should BE on Mars already.

    This is not true at all. Private enterprise rarely conducts original technology research. Governments do this and put the results of those researches into the public domain, so that private enterprise can apply it to new products and services. Almost all of the electronic advances we know today came from NASA and other technology-based government research programs or by grants to academic institutions conducting research on behalf of them. Why the internet itself was developed by ARPA.

    Not saying I wouldn't bang her, but only after she's been thoroughly scrubbed with disinfectant and I have some quality rubbers. Having said that, from all the images I see of her, she appears to have the muscle ton of a bowl of jello, so I don't expect much there.

  • FTFA: Speculation about Martians in Curiosity's midst got off to a running start when the very first sequence of photos taken by the rover raised questions. A hazy, distant object mysteriously appeared and then disappeared in consecutive images of the Martian horizon, perplexing even NASA scientists at first.

    But the much-discussed "anomaly" turned out not to be a sign of alien activity, but rather the plume of dust kicked up by the sky crane that delivered the rover close to the Martian surface, then veered off and struck the ground some 2,000 feet (600 meters) away.


    So it was a sign of alien activity.

    /Aliens to Mars anyway

    Oh, an alt! Now I get it. More coffee needed.

    You realize that your assumption is no different from Romney declaring that nobody goes without health care in this country. Right?

    He thinks I'm a Farker with the initials "QA" who's just trolling. I'm not a real person, so my opinion doesn't matter.

    You know, like the opinions of all those fake poor people out there.

    Come on over here and have a seat. Just sit right here. I'll get you a cup of coffee and a slab of pie. While you're waiting, please meet two old chums -- Thomas A. Edison and Otto Diesel. They will be joined in a minute by a couple o' bros named Wright. We also invited Glenn Curtis, but he probably won't show up. Something between him and the Wrights. Eli Whitney should be here real soon. I think that Sikorsky guy is giving him a lift.

    /"lift"
    //Sikorsky

    Meh, I'm not a fan of alts who troll, but I don't like when people throw that label around without evidence.

    /Idk if he has the evidence to call you out, so I'm just sayin'.
