Martian Rock Resembles Skull, Geeks Hyperventilate

image

Mars is full of aliens! Or, at least, that's what a wide swath of Internet users are electronically shouting after NASA released a recent photo of a skull-shaped rock.

The stone, pictured at right, seems to have ridges and pits that many argue resemble eye sockets and a nasal cavity.

As is their wont, the legions of the 'net are now abuzz, claiming the image as indisputable proof that aliens are living on the red planet, and possibly planning to eat our brains

Researchers at NASA have yet to comment on the mysterious stone, presumably because they have better things to do than argue with nerds.

(On the off chance that one of our new alien overlords is reading this, I was totally kidding. Susan made me write all this blasphemy. Eat her first.

And, might I add, you have lovely cranial sockets.)

[EDIT: Dear potential alien overlords: Nex is strawberry-flavored. Just saying. --Susan]

I dont think aliens would know what strawberries taste like. Anyone remember the "face" on the surface of mars thing? God did everyone make a big ass deal about that. Although i tend to agree all the way about NASA having better things to do then arguing with nerds.

Doctor Manhattan was busy exterminating the subterranean denizens of Mars; looks like one managed to escape to the surface.

Agreed. I doubt i'll live long enough to watch the first fleet of the Terran army departing to explore the vast universe. ;(

It looks more like a space rat to me.

This is even less convincing the the "Face of Mars", or Martian Bigfoot.

Also at first glance I thought the title said "Greeks hyperventilate".

I think the nerds are just projecting. and if the alien overlords do come, I'll just introduce them to "Smith" and "Wesson", and maybe even "Mr. Mossberg". ITS CALLED EVOLUTION, ALIEN BITCHES!

Wow, Bungie is getting creative.

Dinosaurs, robots that can taste people, and now aliens!? All in one week!?

Thats it. We are definitely screwed.

So did I! But then again they were really into astronomy.

Indisputable proof? Yeah, indisputable proof that a shocking number of pale-grey 300 pound basement dwelling virgins will grab at any straw that claims it has Martians.

And I for one welcome our new rock-headed overlords.

Someone had to say it.

First thought I had was they'd found Orville's skull

Just wait till the robots look human dude, then we're screwed.

I misread this title, I thought it said "Martian rock resembles SKRULL".

Which would be freakier.

We are all wrong, Big foot and his pal the loch ness monster have the ability to travel space on their tricked out pogo sticks. One day bouncing around in space Big foot ate one to many Super-Mega-Deluxe-Kickass Tacos and could not find a bathroom, so he took loch nesses advice and just used Mars to drop a stink bomb, the "skull", so they could continue on to Pluto to chill with the cthulhu.

It looks like a rock

Its a rock... I do not see how it really resembles a skull.

Considering that it just barely looks like a skull, I think I'm safe with betting that it's just a rock. But then again, that probably is what a Martian skull would be shaped like...

SWEET JESUS THERE'S ALIENS!

That be a rock.

It looks just like a rock to me.

Thats completly rediculous!

Everyone knows Cthulu sleeps in the underwater city of Ry'leh, where the impenitrable ocean keeps his dreams from destroying the minds of men! I'A I'A, CTHULU FTHNAGN!

That's a rock...OH GOD ROCK ALIENS!

Jesus christ this is funny.

Wouldukindly:
That's a rock...OH GOD ROCK ALIENS!

About the extent of my opinion :D

I mean, c'mon. The face was more convincing than this...

I laugh, because I did the EXACT same thing. I thought it was gonna be something cool and incredibly well photoshopped, and instead... I got a rock. This thread is far less awesome than the thread I had envisioned.

Internet Kraken:

It actualy looks a hell like a skull from a Chrimeria in the Resistance series

ifso then

DUN DUN DUN Nuke the HEll out of Mars !

mmmmmm yea....I'm pretty positive it's a rock...cool picture though of a rock that looks like a skull.

I'd feel bad for the alien who's head looks like that.

I'll now spend the rest of the night my with tin foil hat on, and preferably with a loaded rifle.

Isn't that a bit of an oxymoron? Nerds love arguing with nerds man! Are NASA researchers not the epitomy of nerddome? I mean c'mon lol.

Looks like a rock. A rock that looks a bit like a skull, but a rock none the less.

Think I saw a rock just like that one near my house the other day. Oh noes! They is already here and are infiltrating our rock gardens!
I'm not surprised that there would be those who seriously see a skull in that pic. It doesn't make me happy, but it doesn't surprise me.
Then again, can look at it this way: we have proof there are rocks on Mars, and suckers on Earth.

Wouldukindly:
That's a rock...OH GOD ROCK ALIENS!

*sees rock in backyard*

THE INVASION HAS BEGUN!

This looks like a skull from the Chimera in Resistance.....

HOLY SHIT MARS HAS ROCKS!
