    Whatever is being discovered on Mars is perhaps historic. This  diary, as well as the one yesterday, are wasted here, sad to say.

    When I saw the first few humorous posts speculating on what the discovery is, I laughed:

    1. Romney's tax returns
    2. a black monolith
    3. Republican DNA
    4. some cartoon from the 1960s
    5. Alien
    6. right-wing intelligence
    7. fossils (OK, not humorous but also not possible with SAM)

    The list goes on and on. Remainder of lengthy comment snipped. I no longer read "science" diaries at dkos. The LOL factor in comments is too much. I can get that from plenty of other places.

    Recced and tipped nevertheless. When the results are announced I will be glued to the internet. Just not here.

      attention to Science. This is a political site, after all...and Science itself has become a political issue. If we discover life on Mars, it will be over the strenuous objections of Republicans who would have killed such programs and they will immediately deny its significance, as it challenges their religio-capitalistic-anti-government ideology.

      Just doing my part to piss off right wing nuts, one smart ass comment at a time.
