    Holy crap, those rovers are still going!

    I would have thought that the rovers on mars would have both totally crapped out already, but I guess they're still doing scientific experiments. I am totally amazed that humans have actually engineered little robots to be blasted off into space, land on mars safely, and drive around collecting junk and sending the results and pictures back through space to earth.

    mankind is sweet, we're going to rule the universe pretty soon

    no no no you guys are missing the point! The mexican jokes are just sort of a catalyst to sustain the chemical reaction of people interacting with this post! Seriously though the rovers! The rovers! They're still freaking GOING ON MARS...that's cool! ack!

    even if Silver was not joking, still doesn't make it a rascist joke, as most mexicans I know maintain that they are of 100% pure spanish-european bloodlines, therefore they think they are caucasian and therefore further: dislike/hate of them is no worse than hating the french.

    EDIT: it is pretty cool that those rovers are still there, are they solar powered?

    yeah they are I think.

    I really didn't mean any harm about the mexican thing I can remove it if you peoples want.

    I think you're pretty cool, you're usually pretty nice to me, but I don't understand what you mean about the 'issues' thing. I'm actually perfectly happy, and overall a very effective individual

    Tell them they are completely and utterly wrong, unless they have white skin (which some do). The Spanish mixed with the Aztecs when they came over to America, that is why Mexicans have brown skin. They are not 100% European.

    Back to the topic of rovers...yes, those rovers are pretty cool stuff. How long were they supposed to last?
