Mars Has Ice, Still Needs Women

I have a confession to make. I dislike the word “woot” in the same way that I’m not fond of “LOL.” Things are not funnier because you tacked “LOL” after them. In fact, I would wager that 96% of...

Mmmm. Big bowl four treasure frog. Found via Dave Barry. It is possible to go too far. If you are ever looking for a yardstick about what “too far” is, look no further. If you’re here looking for directions, you are so...

Spirit is King of the Hill

Still playing catchup. Here’s the view that Spirit has from Husband Hill, 269 feet above the Martian plan. Living in the future rocks, doesn’t it? Found via Slashdot. Bonus: He took a nice shot of the moons Deimos and Phobos...
