    I thought Hoffa was working at a bait and tackle shop in Minnesota with Elvis!

    And I think they did a bit about all the missing socks on an episode of Ren and Stimpy back in the day!

    And I thought they were all missing at the local laundromat. All kidding aside, this is big time, and I have that old feeling that since Mars did not have a greenhouse effect, it skipped over the plant stage, and they found protozoan fossils. Proto, as in "first" and, zoa as in "animals". And then something cataclysmic happened and it all ended. Now, where is not_Fritz_Argelander when you need him?

    I was hoping there would be a poll thread on this subject, I just don't know how to start a thread with a poll. Mine would look like this..

    Will NASA say they found

    Methane
    Chlorophyll
    Protein
    Amino acids

    Hi stubeeef. What, no Gondola rides in the canals under the light of the two moons, similar to what they do in Venice, Italy. That doesn't sound very romantic. Sorry, but I don't know how to do polls either. Hopefully a moderator will show up here and enlighten us. Kindest of regards,

    I love NASA from an intellectual point of view, but they are the worst when it comes to PR.
    This will probably turn out to be (another) major "clue" that the building blocks required for the possibility of life may have been detected.

    I hope I'm wrong, but I'm not holding my breath until December.
