NASA got their images confused; that's an infrared flyover of central Ohio, and the red spot centers on the domicile of one Pat Patterson.

Yeah, that picture is a fake! You can clearly see the Ohio River and Lake Erie at the bototm and top respectively which centers the image squarely on Bremen. It has been exceptionally clear and good for IR imaging and the whole things ties in to the Buffalo Chili timeline.

As an Englishman,I reserve the right to continue to say "MEE-thane",as that is the way I was taught,in school,to pronounce it.I will,however,be prepared to try the alternative US pronunciation IF you people in America will say " An-TEE tank",or "An-TEE aircraft", instead of your ludicrous " Ant-EYE tank" and "Ant-EYE" aircraft" !!Makes I laugh,it do !!

Since it is number 1 in a homologus series of hydrocarbons called Olefins the CORRECT (English) pronunciation of the series is
ME-thane
E-Thane
Pro-pane
Bu-tane
Pen-tane
Hex-ane
mind you they can't even get something as easy as Alu-MIN-ium right!!

Someone obviously removed their spacesuit!!!!!! (Sung by Donovan in 1973... anyone remember it?)

I was impressed like everyone,
When man began to fly,
Out of earthly regions,
To planets in the sky.
With total media coverage,
We watched the heros land,
As ceremoniously
They disturbed the cosmic sand.

In awe with admiration,
We listened to the talk.
Such pride felt they,
Such joy to be
Upon the moon to walk.
My romantic vision shattered,
When it was explained to me,
Spacemen wear old diapers
In which they shit and pee.

Oh, the intergalactic laxative,
Will get you from here to there.
Relieve you and believe me,
Without a worry or care.
If shitting is your problem,
When you're out there in the stars,
Oh, the intergalactic laxative
Will get you from here to Mars.

They don't partake like you and I,
Of beefy burger mush.
Their food is specially prepared
To dissolve into slush.
Absorbed by multi-fibers
In the super diaper suit,
Otherwise the slush would trickle
Down inside the boot.

Oh, the intergalactic laxative,
Will get you from here to there.
Relieve you and believe me,
Without a worry or care.
If shitting is your problem
When you're out there in the stars,
Oh, the intergalactic laxative
Will get you from here to Mars.

You may well ask now what becomes
Of liquid they consume.
A pipe is led from penis head
To a unit in the room.
The water is recirculated,
Filtered for re-use.
In case of anti-gravity -
Pee gets on the loose.

Oh, the intergalactic laxative,
Will get you from here to there.
Relieve you and believe me,
Without a worry or care.
If shitting is your problem
When you're out there in the stars,
Oh, the intergalactic laxative
Will get you from here to Mars.

Wherever man has conquered,
On the quest for frontiers new,
(Da da da da)
I'm glad that he's always had to do
The number one and two.
It makes it all so ordinary,
Just like you and me,
To know the greatest heroes,
They had to shit and pee.

The intergalactic laxative
Will get you from here to there,
For cosmic constipation
There's none that can compare.
If shitting is your problem
When you're out there in the stars,
Oh, the intergalactic laxative,
The intergalactic laxative,
The intergalactic laxative,



Intergalactic Laxative... Donovan.. just in case you might consider performing i

We are too quick to blame ourselves, but especially Spaw, for anything that goes wrong. The methane on Mars does not come from farts. There is methane in deep space and on Neptune, where Spaw has never been.

See; http://adsabs.harvard.edu/full/1990ApJ...355..661D

CH3D means methane where one deuterium atom has replaced an H atom. That, and the fact that they discovered it using a telescope in Hawaii, is all I understand of this article.

I think we should all get a grant to go to Hawaii and look into this. Somebody could write a song or two to justify the public expense.

Meanwhile, farts consist mostly of swallowed air and carbon dioxide from soft drinks. Another reason why not to waste money on soft drinks.

It was me.

As Kat knows, I've been flying high of late and doing faraway Diocesan parochial visits in my mini-camper, but I'm working on balance. This time I went a little too far, too fast (when I shouldda napped).

Spaw could not have gone, so I thought I'd just go on his behalf-- a Layabout like Spaw has to get naps that I zoom right past.

The thin air can move at 200 mph on Mars and be felt as nary a breeze but is very effective at dusting off surfaces.

At these speeds the Hydrogen di sulfide smell is one fast fart in the wind.

Methane was probably more plentiful for the first million years after the catasrophic impact/electrical encounter that left Mars scarred and dying.
