We Got A Live One

Wowzers. This video made me laugh out loud. This gentleman believes he has spotted (probably exclusively amongst the human race) some type of manufactured structure on Mars. As a skeptic I’m still amazed when I see credulity at this level. This dude is sure he has discovered a secret no one else knows about. On Google Mars. By – get this – zooming in. Ooooooo. And he’s taken the liberty of naming it as well: Bio Station Alpha. *snicker*

I’m not trying to be mean but come-the-frick-on.

You may have already guessed what this guy is really seeing…and it’s not a Costco on Mars.

I’m not the type of person who enjoys laughing at true believers just for fun. This just had that titillating combination of amusing and pull-your-hair-out annoying that sold me.

So anyhoo please enjoy the man without whose strip-mall-sized-Mars-structure-spotting vision could one day save us from the Williams Sonoma-shopping aliens. Let’s count the logical fallacies, kids.

A succinct explanation can be found in the comments here. As well as a very lolzworthy zing. 😀
