Remember in Where the Buggalo Roam, the "Great Stone Face of Mars"?

Guess what? There is one.

 http://www.csicop.org/si/8512/face-on-mars.html

I realize it's a really old article (almost 20 years old) but it's still factua information. There's a picture of the "Face of Mars," a natural rock formation that looks like a human face. The article points out how natural formations, like rocks, tend to be similars in shape to other natural formations, like us, humans. Therefore, is it not equaly possible that there is in fact a "Great Stone Ass of Mars" on the other side of the planet?

You do know that they took another picture of that area recently, and it didn't look anything like a face, right?

Also, are you familiar with the terms "old news" and "common knowledge"?

Common knowledge, yes.

I remember seeing the face in a really old space book when I was still at primary school.

That's old news, and that's why it's funny.  I'll try to find that new picture: I've seen it, and it doesn't look anything like a face.

Remember in When Aliens Attack, the "Mount Rushmore"?

Well, guess what? There is one.

But where are the pictures of the Great Stone Ass of Mars?  Is that still there?

I also regarded the great face as common knowledge; there's all types of crazy theories about it being built by aliens.  Turn on the Discover channel in the middle of the day and you're bound to hear one or two. 

But on a side note, I fucking love thread titles with crazy typos.  It's like no one bothers to proofread the five or six words they typed that cannot be changed in any way once they hit "submit."  And the spelling success rate seems to hover around 20%.  It's awesome.

You know, oddly enough, it sort of looks like... a big-ass mountian. Isn't it uncanny...

Yeah, but I've seen pictures and it looks nothing like five faces.

I find myself disappointed that the stone face isn't a face. Perhaps though, it was made to look like one from far away. After all, a lot of stuff looks different up close.

yeah, the stone face is really old news, anyone that's into stuff like that knows about it...and of course it isn't real, it was just a trick of the something.

The stone ass is just a joke (common one, too). They never did find a "stone ass"

No! It can't be true!

All my hopes and dreams have crashed to the ground where they were trampled by stampeding otters, then eaten by pigeons.

I should hope not.  It's supposed to be four faces: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abe Lincoln, and Teddy Roosevelt.
