You're kidding, right?
Imagine the marketing compain. Celebs would be buying it left and right for a million dollars a bottle. And the poor in the hood could steel them from the celeb's kids! Just like they did in the 80's with Nike shoes.

Re: Water on Mars?

oh, i dunno, just because water is kind of essential to life, and would be interesting if there was anything up there.

P.S. Since i'm a christian, I find it very interesting.

It has to do with discovery for most of us. That, of course, excludes Georgia.

ONE.

I was going to make some smart a$$ comment, but decided not to.
But what if we were just the practice planet and the real world he created was somewhere else, leaving us here to our own devices?

Is this world not real? Do I not bleed if you cut me? Do I not have feelings, just like you? Do I not get kicked out of a bowling alley after drunkenly throwing the ball into the other lane?

You're telling me.

But to get back to Custom's question. The real significance in finding water on Mars is that if there were any amount at all, we could use it for a base station. We do not have the ability to take water with us. So if we find a place within reach that has water, we could use it to support a viable garden and eco system. It would be the first step.

Ya, and for that matter, what does it have to do with the USA or Lincolnton, Georgia?

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Water on Mars?

It's another step in the right direction. Finding water means that it may be able to support habitat, which means there is a possibility of long term visitation, which means a new place for all the celebs to visit in about 20 years.

Wow, I need to get off this site for a bit and go into general public, I'm starting to think a little strange??
