I'm tired of people ripping on Jersey like it's some sort of Chernobyl-esque industrial wasteland.

Of course.  There are several tribes of Tharks living there...

Mars May Be Habitable Today, Scientists Say

Subby read TFA?

Sure, totally habitable today. Living somewhere in a deep freeze with no breathable atmosphere, no magnetic field and no liquid water. Sounds more like Vegas on a cold winter night to me.

What is wrong with you?  We've spent years convincing everyone from Pennsylvania, Delaware, and New York they don't want to visit.  Stop screwing up the program.

TFA is talking about habitable for some kinds of microbes. Frankly I'm tired of hearing about shiat like "May have had liquid water" and "evidence of microscopic single celled life" and the like. It was great the first time things like that were announced, but we don't need to hear about it all the time anymore. Wake me when we find hot alien women that want to fark our brains out. Or when we find a Prothean beacon, or Mass Relay, or a Monolith.

Of course it is. Quaid just needs to turn on the reactor.

As I say in every thread for months, "why are we not searching for life on Mars?"

This headline/subject has been obvious to anyone who isn't totally brain dead for a LOOONNNNGGGGG time.

Only a matter of time before life is confirmed to be found on Mars. Then the debate will shift to, "well its really the same type of life as here on Earth so we're still special and that's why all the major religions focus on just us." They're all still totally true guys, promise.

Life forms from Mars or New Jersey? Your guess is as good as mine.

Any state is pretty enough when you get far enough away from the places people want to / need to live

No one is saying complex life might live there. Microbes live in all kind of incredibly hostile environments on earth. Heck, they found fungus in the heart of the Chernobyl power plant, flourishing and getting sustenance from the gamma radiation. I'd fully believe certain forms of life could survive on Mars.

Wait til after 2014, just in case that comet's a bit closer than they think.

Hey, Subtard, the "in" you misplaced in front of "habitable" makes it an entirely different word. Also makes your headline incorrect. English probably isn't your first language, but now you know, and knowing is half the battle.

Don't forget the Red Martians, the Okarians, the remaining White Martians, the Black Martians, and last but not least among the greater tribes, the weird symbiotic Kaldanes and Rykors. There are also the "Kangaroo men" and the Hormads, but they are barely worth mentioning.
