    The last major announcement by NASA was the discovery of bacteria in Mono Lake which use Arsenic instead of Phosphorus - except they don't. I hope this won't be another embarrassing mistake!

    Well yes, except it is a K-Mart and it has been closed a while. It is the site of the future WalMart though.

    It is most likely a large deposit of single socks. Everyone I know is missing at least one sock, this could be the stash-maybe it's like a 2001 obelisk made from all the single missing socks from everyone on Earth.
