Here's something else to distract from the stupidity of Benghazi: Squirrel Discovered In NASA Curiosity Rover Photo, Is NASA Bringing Test Animals To Mars?
Update: A lot of people are emailing me saying that this squirrel was part of a NASA experiment to test  how long it would live on the surface of Mars and I do believe this does sound like something they might do. Why would they not tell us about it? Because the squirrel would be expected to die eventually and that would get PETA to fight against them in a court of law.
I am close to speechless.

The Stupid just burns so brightly here. Go read through the comment section, if you have nothing better to do.

This is not a picture of a squirrel on Mars. This is a squirrel that is at the Mojave Desert. We are being fooled, there are no mars rover in mars, the rovers are at the Mojave desert hahaha.

That animal is small. And it's eyes r open!!!! I had a squirrel as a kid. It didnt eat much. On Mars it could find tiny plants and moss that the rover wont show us in photos but i know its there.

It does one no good whatsoever to ask "How stupid can people be?" for they just keep breaking new stupid ground.

How did I end up on a planet with these fools?

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
