    Mark, you should be sorry. That was terrible! lol!

    A good thing for you that you set the limits of combat to typing.

    Mark, dejah have to go there?

      I know the puns hurt. But Thoris a balm in Gilead.

    There is no life on Mars. If there was, we’d be sending foreign aid there

    • Mark Windsor

      If they confirm there was once life on Mars, we’ll then start sending aid and spend billions trying to study it.

    The problem with these pun threads is that Mark just Burroughs deeper and deeper. It’s like taking hits of Helium: he just likes the way it sounds.

    You’re my favorite Martian.
    They won’t get it unless they are from a well red planet.
    I hope no one is snickering:

    (can you be only half-redundant – or should they have added the soom bar)
    For more you have to pay the “Fe”.

    Not saying this proves anything, but Kim Stanley Robinson’s name is an anagram of “Sky Inn Let in Barsoom.”
