Pretty quiet, today. Howzabout a little dose of Martian news from the scientists over at FOX.

Newly published research shows that hundreds of depressions on Mars' surface, known as "ghost dunes," could hold evidence of ancient life.

The research, published in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets, shows that each of the ancient dunes (most likely sand dunes) are the size of the U.S. Capitol. They've remained preserved for years because of the way they were composed, with lava and sediment partially burying the dunes over time, causing them to become hardened, the research states.

I'm going for a swim in the lake. I'm expecting a full-fledged turdfest when I get back. You can thank me later. :-)

      I'm drowning in your love and admiration. It beats drowning in your unending bullshit. :-)

      Back to the lake. It's too beautiful for words. Like a freakin bathtub. Glub, glub, glub.

      Might be???

      Let's, just for fun, look at an analogy:

      The Mississippi River. Not just the main river but all the tributaries, lakes, backwaters, etc.

      On the bank somewhere in Missouri, there is a tiny puddle. In this puddle, there is a single drop of water. In that drop there are lifeforms. These lifeforms believe they are all the life that exists in the entire Mississippi River system.

      We live in a Universe teeming with life. We should fervently hope none of it ever discovers us.

    We should be researching how the Lizard People manage to grow such bountiful crops in such a harsh environment. If we can harness the same techniques they use we might be able to survive on Earth when climate change eventually destroys all the arable land we have.
