Rocks from Mars

Well, you know a few years ago I had a very bad head injury. I was in the hospital for a very long time. Before I was discharged a Doctor talked to me. He said I probably would have a full recovery and be fine. He did tell me they had to place a very sensitive instrument in my brain. He said not to be alarmed if I heard a sound like a ding ding ding. That it was sensing some sort of information that might be unbelievable. I later called it my B.S. detector. Ya know what, it just went off.

Merry Christmas and Happy New year.

Well, they did say the chances were a million-to-one.

And a million-to-one chance will come through nine times out of ten, yep.

I assume this is the column in question. It helps to include the link, so everyone else knows what you’re talking about.

That said, I’m still not entirely sure what you’re talking about. What is it that you’re detecting as BS? Is it that the rocks are from Mars, or that they might harbor life? Because the former is pretty well-established scientifically, and really isn’t all that much of a stretch anyway, but the latter is considerably more speculative, and is probably mostly just wishful thinking.
