Life on Mars!

trilobite.jpgOr water near the surface. Or evidence that there once was a lake where Opportunity is now rooting around. Whatever it is, Something big will be announced tomorrow by NASA:

"Significant findings from NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity, now exploring Meridiani Planum on Mars, will be announced at a press briefing at 2 p.m. EST, Tuesday, March 2, 2004, at NASA Headquarters, Washington."
Speculation as to what exactly here, here, here and here.

Personally, I won't be happy until we get a lovely photograph of a Martian trilobite fossil.

bajesus! i'm getting a helmet and hiding out in my basement for a couple of weeks- no way those martian shitsuckers are going to get to me!

PS- please send a jug of cosmopolitans from shillers or pastis- i can't live like this for long.

Its Super Tuesday. The news will be that they've found life in John Kerry.

Washington press conferences on breaking intergalactic news on Super Tuesday ... hmmm... and it was BILL CLINTON who was too political?

So, its rock that was once wet. Fears that there was going to be no space on the evening news for Kerry coverage may have been over-played.

Jake, how would you know that Msrtians don't look like a jug of comsopolitans?

Seriously, when I heard the water on Mars thing, I became worried again about there being Martians. I am still worried.

Well, Jen, there's Charles.

A fossil! Oh come on guys- I want to see a real live Martian- freakshow and all. Of course, they would probably be far too intelligent to have anything to do with us and are probably giggling as they leave silly little relics around to fool us.
