Mars Rat Spotted in Rover Photos

We all know rats can get in to pretty much any nook and crevice.

But who knew they could get into outer space? And settle down on Mars?!?

A photo taken in September by NASA’s Curiosity rover appears to depict some kind of furry small creature.

“Note its lighter color upper and lower eyelids, its nose and cheek areas, its ear, its front leg and stomach,” writes ScottCWaring, a contributor to UFO Sightings Daily, who first picked up on the abnormality.

Others believe this is merely a rock and, similar to the Hitler tea kettle on a recent J.C. Penny billboard, Waring is just seeing what he wants to see.

So take a close look yourselves, THGers, and decide: Rat or no rat?

Keyshawn Johnson Goes OFF on Justin Bieber, Labels Singer a “Coward”

Keyshawn Johnson once wrote an autobiography titled “Just Give Me the Damn Ball.”

After one year of playing in the NFL.

In other words: this is a man unafraid to speak his mind, and he did so again today when asked about Justin Bieber.

 

When approached by TMZ for a comment on confronting Bieber a few days ago after the artist sped around the pair’s neighborhood in Los Angeles, Johnson made his feelings on the star VERY clear.”You got a 19-year-old kid … feeling entitled … speeding up and down the highway … that’s why all the neighbors is mad,” Keyshawn says in an intense interview.

He also explains why Bieber is a “coward” and a “trickster,” saying he came upon Justin in the celebrity’s driveway after clearly witnessing him behind the wheel, driving like a maniac – only Bieber switched spots with Lil Twist and tried to play all innocent.

Says the ex-wide receiver: “Look man, I know the difference between a black kid driving a car and white kid driving a car … I got biracial kids.”

Justin Bieber Accused Of Being A Baby’s Daddy AGAIN!!

Justin Bieber‘s baby daddy drama continues!

Another woman has stepped forward and is claiming the Die in your Arms singer is the father of her two year-old daughter after they knocked boots in Miami way back in 2010, when he was ONLY 15!!!

The European woman is choosing to keep her identity under wraps, but a source close to her says she’s 100% sure the Biebs is the daddy:

“She gave birth to a baby girl later that year, and Justin didn’t know anything about it. She just wanted to protect her baby. She wanted to keep her and her family away from any spotlight.”

Although the woman in question is coming forward about her baby, she says she has no plans on pursuing legal action against Justin:

“She won’t be asking for a penny form him, and she has no desire to become part of the celebrity lifestyle. She’s going to leave it up to Justin to decide, at any point in the future that he chooses, if he ever wants to get involved with the child.”

This isn’t the first time that he’s been tied to paternity issues, asMariah Yeater also accused the pop singer of fathering her child just a couple of years ago, but she eventually dropped her lawsuit!

Sources close to Bieber are once again saying there is NO truth behind these claims! That’s probably a good thing too, because the closest thing Justin’s ever had to a child was his pet monkey, and we all know how that turned out! LOLz!!

 

Google’s Schmidt: Teens’ mistakes will never go away

Speaking at a festival in the U.K., Google’s executive chairman offers that the things teens do now will stay with them forever, by way of the Web. He also suggested some people are sharing too much online.

When you search “teens do stupid things” on YouTube, you get a treasure trove.

It must be peculiar for children of the Internet age.

They are the first to have a complete record of their whole lives. They are the first who’ll be able to offer concrete proof of every one of their days, friends, and actions.

Eric Schmidt worries, however, that they’ll be the first who’ll never be allowed to forget their mistakes.

As the Telegraph reports, Schmidt spoke Saturday at the Hay Festival in the U.K. and offered some sobering thoughts for those addled by online life.

He said: “There are situations in life that it’s better that they don’t exist. Especially if there is stuff you did when you were a teenager. Teenagers are now in an adult world online.”

Some days, you could hardly describe most of what happens online as “adult.” Still, Schmidt says he believes the online world has gone too far in forcing teens to never forget.

In bygone times, he said, they were punished, but allowed to grow beyond youthful indiscretions.

Some might wonder that teenagers aren’t punished enough these days, so the online world acts as a peculiar corrective.

However, my own worry is the use of the word “mistake.”

This is a word that is always couched in certainty, but often has a highly fluctuating meaning.

A word or an act can seem like a mistake when it happens — and even shortly afterward. In years to come, though, you might look back on it and see that, though it created friction and even hurt at the time, it served a higher and more character-forming purpose in the long run.

Supposed mistakes can lead you down paths that you never would have otherwise traveled. You end up discovering things about yourself and what makes you happy that may have otherwise never been found.

 

Calling one’s boss “a raving buck-toothed lunatic, with the management skills of a deaf hyena and the talent of an oaf’s corpse” might get you fired — or even ostracized for a while.

Yet the courage that might have taken could serve to bolster an otherwise compliant spirit and project you to higher goals and achievements.

Similarly, a teenager who is digitally captured engaging in one of the thousands of indiscretions to which teenagers have mental and physical access — say, putting toilet cleaner and aluminum foil in a water bottle — might have to suffer for it in the short term.

In years to come, however, that might seem merely a fond and hearty reminder of how absurd life (and people) can be. It might also show an aspect of character that some might not immediately spot.

It’s true that, as Schmidt said in his speech, people are now sharing too much. He gave the example of future parents posting ultrasounds of their unborn babies.

But part of the problem that teens might encounter in the future comes not from their having made supposed mistakes. It’s from those who might choose to judge them for those supposed mistakes.

As ever in life, the opinions of others — especially in the sheep pen that is the Web — can be the most mistaken and most damaging distortion of all.
