A land less strange

Sunset on Mars

I yield the floor to Tamara K., who says it better than I ever could:

A sunset. On Mars.

We took this picture. We did this. We did. Us humans. It's going to happen; maybe not in my lifetime, but soon. For every mouth-breathing idiot who wants to kill his neighbor because of their race, religion, or choice of dandruff shampoos, there are a dozen brilliant, dedicated people toiling away to make the future happen.

You can't stop this train.

I think she might be underestimating the number of mouth-breathing idiots, but otherwise, this is spot on.

It still ain't the kind of place to raise your kid.

In fact, it's cold as hell, and there's no place to raise them if you did, but still, somebody needs to check this place out.

Aha! A landscape without a WalMart. Opportunity!

You just know they're thinking the same thing in Bentonville.

Evidently this is someone's worst nightmare.

Uh... didn't one of those mouth-breathing idiots turn out to be an astronaut last year? Not that I'm agin sending psychos to Mars. I'm just not real keen on paying for their return trips.
