I'm willing to bet Curiosity is making a duckface.

Well, that's kind of what they were DESIGNED to do, when lightning strikes aren't screwing with their software.

And from the angle, you can't even tell that it has a lot more junk in the trunk than Spirit.

Awesome. We sent a super-expensive robot to another planet to take pictures of itself. Why not take a picture of the waste of money down here on Earth before shooting it more than halfway across the galaxy? I hope the starving kids enjoy looking at it.

Well there is no way it could have taken someone(thing) else's self portrait.

2.6/10

Usually I don't rate troll posts but I have some extra time on my hands at the moment. It was the "halfway across the galaxy" thing that kind of motivated me.

2.6? Dang. Especially since the "halfway across the galaxy" thing was what I thought would put me over the top. It's those little hooks that can really work sometimes.

We'll know we've really invented the future when we build robots that also play with themselves.

We should have sent starving kids instead of replacing them with a machine.

I submitted it as a PS contest yesterday which would have gotten r34 off to a quick start.

Because NASA wants to see what might have gotten damaged in shipping.
