back to article Caves spotted on Mars

The Mars Odyssey orbiter has beamed back pictures of what appear to be cave entrances on the slopes of a Martian volcano. Seven small dark craters pepper the side of the long-extinct volcano. They range from about 100 to 200 metres in size, and are very nearly circular. The NASA team turned the thermal imaging cameras on the …

The openings higher on the slope are where the missiles come out. The helicopter landing pads are hidden in the openings further down the slope. Everyone knows this, right?

Duh

They obviously have big worms in them like the one that tried to eat the Millenium Falcon in the Empire Strikes Back.

Somewhere in the larger caves is the home city of the Mysterons, who await the arrival of the ill-fated expedition led by the man who will become known only as Captain Black.

Made indestructible by the Mysterons, Captain Black will make Osama Bin Laden look like a teddy bear, plotting terror and destruction on a weekly basis, striking regularly at tea time on a Sunday afternoon.

Earth's only hope will lie with the equally indestructible Captain Scarlet, who will repeatedly save the world at great personal cost and to the ongoing annoyance of his tailor.

Dum dum, dum, dum dum-dum dum.

The truth about Mars

From what I recall, the caves will lead to an underground reactor and triple breasted whores.

No one would have belived....

...in the early years of the twenty first century that this world was being watched keenly and closely by intelligences greater than man's and yet as mortal as his own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns they were scrutinized and studied, perhaps almost as narrowly as a man with a microscope might scrutinize the transient creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacency men went to and fro over the globe about their little affairs, serene in their assurance of their empire over matter.

ULAH!

Re: ULAH!

So now all NASA has to do is keep an eye on those caves and watch carefully for any green flares coming out of them. If we see that, we're in real trouble. After all, if the Martians have now developed immunity to the common cold we might need to resort to weaponised anthrax to solve the problem this time around!

RE: SIG

And at great personal cost to the taxpayer as well, you employ Captain Scarlet to a job and he does get it done but usually ends up trashing more stuff the James Bond. Do you know how much those Armoured Rhino's Vehicles cost?
