So it's in the bed of a Nissan truck?

Where else are the centaurs going to have their absurdly complicated sex?

Careful.  Don't set off the Sirens.

It's all fun until Enceladus joins in and pees in the bath. Spoil sport.

Huh, cool link Subs! The theory they are presenting sounds totally viable.

It's crazy to imagine a whole moon surface covered in liquid methane/ethane. Don't light a match! (no oxygen to burn anyways).

Methane, ethane, and nitrogen. So it's made up of Irish farts.

Well, let;s not try and float a lander on it unless we want it to sink in a foam of gas bubbles. Not much buoyancy there

If you really want a methane bubble bath, give me some chili and beer, and a hot tub.

Well yeah, since that's not an accurate description of Titan.  According to our best information, it's a mostly dry planet with some very large hydrocarbon lakes at the poles.

Yeah this isn't my bag.  But still the concept of giant hydrocarbon lakes is intriguing. I really should study more astronomy because the field is juts exploding. And here I just tinker around around with complex organic molecules that have no true place in the universe outside of weird human origin. Someday Titan

Because I just got into this here's another interesting article, the sheer amount of carbon-hydrogen molecules on the surface of any world is just farking weird. Titan is crazy balls

You would be wrong about that the Christian Science Monitor is actually, believe it or not, a reputable source. They mainly stick to pure journalism and I don't get much hint of bias.

Don't be too down on yourself.  You said "no true place" for the organic molecules of your tinkering, but the discount tissues from Dollar-mart can handle the results of your masturbation sessions just fine.

but.... we could shoot O2 missiles at it till it burned enough to create a CO2 atmosphere, triggering atmospheric warming from the sun, allowing us to start terraforming.

Could. Like we could build a partial dyson sphere, i mean.

The Christian Science Monitor is generally considered to be reputable and I've personally never found them to be terribly biased. I'm what many on Fark would call a 'militant' atheist and I'm a fan of theirs.
