The Ultimate Sign of Life

Apparently I took the worst possible time for my sanity-restoring news break.  Because while I wasn’t looking, NASA’s Curiosity rover found life on Mars.  Imagine that!

It’s true.  At least according to the New York Times.  Life exists, or at least existed, on Mars.  Scientists know this because they found methane up there.  Out there.  Wherever.

Yup!  Scientists found fart residue on Mars.

That’s what happens when inquiring minds shake the blankets in the morning.

We are truly not alone in the universe.

  1. I used to love My Favorite Martian! I had a secret crush on Bill Bixby.

  2. Just for the record, methane is a colourless, odorless gas that is indicative of carbon-based biological activity but can also be produced by thermogenic activity that is not indicative of life. Also, I have smelled a lot of methane in my life. And I am also a supreme nerd.

  5. Maybe I’ll ship my new co-worker there sine she seems to be an expert in the fart department.
    Ps. I LOVED My Favorite Martian!

    • Pity your co-worker, Tops. Trust me, there is nothing worse than knowing you are the one cutting all that cheese…I speak from experience.

      I loved that show too. It was just so much fun. Why aren’t there endless reruns of that?

    I thought the moon was made of cheese. Metaphor fail.

  7. I feel much better just knowing the Martians have equally bad diets. At least I’m hoping it is from Martians and that Mars isn’t the place our old farts go to die…

    • No, no, no. It’s the healthy stuff that causes gas. Broccoli is one of the worst offenders, for example.

      But it would be nice if, IF our farts go to die on Mars, that they’d clear them up before my husband wakes up …

  8. Don’t tell me the Martian diet is as bad as ours.

    • Actually, it’s the stuff that’s good for you that causes the most gas! The beans and broccoli and stuff like that. So perhaps we can all become simple carnivores and clean up our air!

  13. Well of course, this would be the first sign of other life. Farts. Not cool technology, not spectacular abandoned cities. Farts.

    Gawd, where are you now.

  14. I’m certain millions of years from now, some alien nation will detect abnormally high levels of fart residue hovering around what used to be Maine thanks to my husband.

  15. Like to see how they intend to collect the Methane Tax that was rumoured a little while ago.

    Well, it could have been Martian cows. I saw an article in National Geographic where they placed methane gas collectors on the rears and mouths of a herd of cows and then piped it with red and blue tubing to a collector mounted on the each cow’s back where it was analyzed and then the data sent to a satellite via a transmitter mounted on top of the analyzer. (Anal-yzer, get it?) The herd of cows looked decidedly un-Earthly wandering around transmitting data (I really don’t want to want to know how to mount a detector on a cow’s ass) covered in red and blue tubing with antennas on their backs, Anyway, it turns out that all the estimates of methane contribution by cows has been wrong for many years – it is actually many times higher than anyone expected.

    So, all that to say, it could have been Martian cows. Just sayin’.

    • I’m sure it was martian cows.

      Wouldn’t you hate to be one of those poor suckers who hook that apparatus up to the cows. Imagine when Aunt Edna asks, “So what are you doing for work now?”
