    No room for puns about Spartans, that's for sure.

    Sigh. We're in the Matrix. There are no thigh bones.

    No, the Matrix has no spoons. We don't know if the Matrix has Martians, let alone their thigh bones. It is Martians by Wells and Heinlein that have no thigh bones. I think Bradbury's Martians had thigh bones.

    One might argue that Barsoomians are Martians, and they do have thigh bones. Strangely, they also have breasts, despite being oviparous.

    Petrification is one way in which organic matter becomes fossilized.

    Wow, If there was a job that paid for trolling you guys would win hands down because you wouldn't be able to even have an intelligent discussion relating to science.

    I hold out hope that the Thigh Bone might be something else. Even if it is just a rock, rocks shaped like that are shaped in the manner of the Thigh Bone by wind but more so by being emerged in water that flows around it in different currents.

    ^Oh, no, we can certainly have a serious conversation about science -- funnily enough, for some of us, including me, having serious conversation about science is our job. But what you posted here bears no resemblance to science whatsoever, hence the tomfoolery.

    Soon as someone starts an intelligent discussion we'll participate. Seriously, take a look at a few of the threads in this subforum you haven't taken part in.

    Sorry to ruin the fun, guys, but I'm gonna lock this one. There's been almost no discussion of anything related to Mars exploration here, just a lot of joking around and poking of the OP. I'm all for poking and joking around, this is just not the forum for it. ;)
