After NASA's announced finding water on Mars, social media felt there may be more...#AlsoFoundOnMars

Mars is Trending I get a kick out of ridiculous hashtags. Admittedly, they are quite useful for uniting disparate pieces of information pertaining to a common cause. But, we all need to laugh at things often enough to not let our heads explode when the going gets tough.

NASA announced finding water on present-day Mars. Having not found life outside our own planet, this is quite exciting as water is one of the critical necessities of life as we know it. I doubt Martians are lurking just out of view of the various rovers we've sent there, but if life ever existed on Mars, the discovery of water means life could exist there in the future.

Several ambitious dreamers have been planning a colonization effort of Mars and are soliciting those who find Earthly dwelling to banal for their liking. There are a handful of efforts you can align with if the red planet is more to your liking. Personally, I'm not going to Mars until they can provide retro arcades that serve food after 11pm.

Also Found On Mars With the "water on Mars" announcement, social media had to jump into the fray and speculate about what else might be found on Mars. I do like moronic hashtags and had to jump on #AlsoFoundOnMars with a Moon Patrol pic. :)
