I’m less interested in this than I am in the freaky deaky red state/blue state traffic fatality discrepancy, but here you go, space nerds. The first five minutes of awkward current events small talk at the dinner table on Thursday are on me.

Not sure what it is, but the graph is shaped like Michael Mann’s head.

Obama’s college transcripts?

NASA has been so discredited due to its political BS they will resort to these types of cheap tricks.

Hmmm, if it was mars-shattering news, I suspect it would have leaked by now.

John Jones farted on the rover?

Does this mean you will never venture out of NYC?

I have this vision of you and the cat(s) traveling across America one day, ala, Harry and Tonto.

They’re promoting Pluto back to planetary status so our educations weren’t a complete waste?

It’s a bind scientists frequently find themselves in, because by their nature, scientists like to share their results. At the same time, they’re cautious because no one likes to make a big announcement and then have to say “never mind.”

That hasn’t stopped the scientific community even once in the entire history of ever. I think they’d be putting on the front page now if it wasn’t for the fact that withholding the news for a bit makes it even BIGGER news.

Or do we need to dig through the older articles on this site alone where scientists have reported “new missing links” or “new cures for cancer.”

NASA would love to trumpet a major finding, especially at a time when budget decisions are being made.

That’s all you need to know about this.

All NASA’s about, besides building the self esteem of savages, is finding ET, or “evidence” of ET.

So if they find methane, it will proof that ET farted on Mars.

They found beans?

You will have to wait until after 12/21 for answers.

Me too. But it’ll probably be lame.

DNI Clapper’s credibility?

JEM on November 20, 2012 at 4:06 PM

If it’s movie with Val Kilmer and the chick from the Matrix it’s not that good.

Uh oh. Get ready for evangelicals to deny.

Uh oh. Get ready for idiots to try to derail the thread.

Bollocks, AP. You just wanted to say “freaky deaky”. :P

Don’t forget the one where scientists found bacteria that pooped gold.

Nevermind that they fed the bacteria gold chloride to begin with.

Dominion on November 20, 2012 at 6:13 PM

They found apartment complexes! I heard it on Coast to Coast AM on Friday, so it must be true!
