    Exclamation Mystery figure found on Red Planet!

    Link

    Perched on a rock, she could be waiting for a bus.

    But if so, she could be in for an awfully long wait.

    This photo of what looks remarkably like a female figure with her arm outstretched, was taken on Mars.
    They say Mars once had an Ocean of liquid water on its surface, so my theory is that this is a mermaid who perched herself on a rock and then suddenly the oceans froze up or dried up and she was left frozen and mummified in that state. :spinnysmi

    "If someone gets into your house, which would you rather have, a handgun or a telephone? You can call the police if you want, and they'll get there, and they'll take a picture of your dead body. But they can't get there in time to save your life. The first line of defense is you." ~ Tom Palmer

    "It's not an endlessly expanding list of rights – the "right" to education, the "right" to health care, the "right" to food and housing. That's not freedom, that's dependency. Those aren't rights, those are the rations of slavery – hay and a barn for human cattle." ~ Alexis De Tocquiville

    Just the shadowed face of a rock, nothing more. People want to believe in this stuff so badly that all sense of logic and reason flies out the window.

    Could be just a normal rock that looks like a human. People find familiar shapes in anything, i.e. clouds, shadows, stones, pieces of bread, etc..

    In '86 a seasoned hiker that had trekked the Himalayans for quite a while snapped the attached photo, because he believed it to be yeti. He swore up and down that it wasn't a natural part of the landscape because he knew that part of the range in and out. Everybody got excited at this new piece of indisputable proof, analasys was done twice, and the experts confirmed that it was undoctored. When some skeptics took a hike our there to validfy his claim, they realized that it was nothing more than a rock formation, later that year Woolridge concurred his err.

    I'm not saying that mars pic is a mis-identification, but if you look at the pic below hard enough it doesn't look exactly like a rock formation either. Of course when it comes to mars we've thought of anything and everything as to what the martians are, how fertile the land was, and the social structure, pecking order, and the way that we get communications from them (early part of the 1900's). 'Course, if that is a martian I'd like to be the first to toss a couple of brews back with 'em (providing that the stuff isn't like arsenic to them)... Hell, I might even be able ta get a date on Mars.
