Even if Im not to be the first microbiologist to get to mars ( even the
102nd lol ) Im living for that day we hear the magic words "Life on MArs".
"It" all changes
then it beomes galatactic community time. New morals, new agendas and
imperatives and of course above all NEW FOOD. Starngely the news " Fossils
on MArs" would also be equally exciting thoug less edible of course . I
suppose eventaully it will be " Burgers on MArs" then " Extinct species on
Mars " what about "MArtian Independance Day" lol. It s all just so exciting
Id give everyhting I own right now including my Fender Stratocaster to spend
one day living up the line 200 years from now.
I suppose more importantly than microbiologists on Mars we need to send a
cleaning crew to MArs to tidy up the junk rapidly accumlualting on its
surface and least but not last, Inspectors to find the hidden the weapons
of mass destruction we all been a hunting for.
Have an great weekend
