So Mars sharts, we all do occasionally. No reason not to visit.

There is a taco bell on Mars already?

I think we should send an expert in that field. Oldfarthenry, you up for a mission?

Sound more like a mission to Uranus, subby.

Explosive Bursts of Methane is the name of my southwestern cuisine restaurant in Santa Fe.

Just like subby's mom.

What a Martian might look like?

And that's just your fellow astronauts on the way there.

Nice timing, I haven't pooped in four days so for the first time ever I got some fiber bars and I'm chewing at this very moment as I'm relaxing on my bed.

A few years ago I was over at my father's and munching on snack bars all day. OMG, I didn't realize they were fiber bars and I spent the next farting at work at an unholy pace. I are slows so I didn't put two and two together until the next time I was over there and realized that they must not have been standard snack bar thingies that I'd been munching on. I don't remember my farts being smellier than normal but damn, they just did not stop. I've never seen anything quite like it and it was completely unintentional, thankfully there were no meetings or anything important and everybody was having a ball with it.

You're welcome for the overshare.

Not that I'm really checking out former Senator Rick Santorum but I am wondering if he has one hell of an outtie or if his clothes just made a weird shape.

Hi, guys. I saw the butt signal in the sky & got here as quick as I could. What's up?

Worrying about a 3.5 billion year old methane release makes me worry about subby's sanity.
 
2017-10-04 11:54:05 AM  
And since we all hinge on what subby thinks...
 
2017-10-04 12:22:38 PM  
Subby should only be worried about our mars mission if this was still going on.  And if it was still going on we would have seen it by now.  Curiosity would be desperately looking for a shower instead of blasting rocks.

"So my physicist asked me to leave a semen, stool and urine sample.  I said, gee, Doc, I'm in a real hurry.  Can't I just leave my underwear?!"

Far fetched, but possible.
Olivine + water = serpentine + methane, but there's usually warmth involved.
Fine. Warm methane then must be frozen into clathrates. In volume.
Technically possible.
I can see some places to poke some holes in this, but it's fun speculation.

/small volcanoes erupted in Texas in shallow water depths during the Cretaceous. (one still sticks up near the Austin airport) The reaction w seawater formed serpentine. When serpentine is formed this way, porosity is generated (shot full of holes)  In the early 1910's the farmers drilled for water. The hit the serpentine plugs, some at ridiculously shallow depths. Oil flowed out. Sadly fresh water in these areas was more valuable than the oil back then.

Oh yeah, it's so much safer here on Earth in cities full of insane, half-evolved, warring monkeys, driving around in hydrocarbon burning chunks of metal and plastic on wheels while they all try to kill and fark each other over until they reach the top of a pile of their own bullshiat.

I am very successful with the methane followed by liquid technique... I've used this technique on at least 600 first dates. No second dates,  but I'm sure it's just a coincidence😀

So he already got his ass to Mars I take it.

Just because you want to pull out all the stops on Uranus doesn't mean you can practice on M'arse

Just stay away from granny's little chocolate pill.
