Life On Mars? 'Lizard' Spotted On Surface Of Mars Is Just A Rock: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Mars is toxic. Although the atmosphere is filled with toxic perchlorates, and silicate and gypsum dust that would make a coal miner breathe a sigh of relief, one UFO enthusiast insists he spotted a rat on the surface of Mars.


NASA`s Mars rover Curiosity took a panoramic photo of the `Rocknest` site in September 2012, and eagle-eyed Scott C. Waring discovered the rodent and uploaded the image to the website UFO Sightings Daily, saying  NASA almost makes historical announcement, but chickens out."


UFO fanatics have done incalculable harm to the concept of honest and legitimate scientific inquiry. Every UFO nut with half a brain and a cell phone has posted a video of a UFO on YouTube. In 99.99999999 percent of the time the "flying saucer" turns out to be swamp gas, a Chinese lantern, a glider, an airplane or dust on the camera lens.

UFO believers aren`t content with mistaking airplanes in the sky for UFO`s, now they are mistaking rocks on the surface of Mars for lizards.

The rodent in question is just a rock, same as the rocks in Waring`s head.

Dude here`s todays WORD OF THE DAY:


Human quirk that makes us see faces and other familiar objects in random shapes, textures and surfaces.

Dude, if NASA releases video of the "lizard" running around the surface of Mars, and taking a dump, then and only then, do we have earth-shattering news.
