It's known as the Oppai-Kaiju effect. The islands of Japan generate a sort anti-gravity field, which allows breasts to behave as if in microgravity. It's also what allows Godzilla and friends to become 50 stories tall, and lets ninjas run up the side of a skyscraper.

A lot of things on Mars have opened twitter accounts since Curiosity landed.

Everything has a twitter. I'm fairly certain if you complain about the universe on twitter it will answer back.

How would one do that? I might dig out whatever password I had for my Echo Bazaar twitter to see what I'd get out of such a complaint.

We need to start a petition to spare N165 from this clearly unlawful execution. What crime is that poor rock guilty of!?

Curiosity is of Earth, it needs not ponder the guilt or innocence of the rocks of Mars. Earth is always right.

Great stuff. Better train your laser-aiming skills.

Ahhhh, naturally. They just couldn't quite manage to send a robot to Mars without placing a death cannon on board. :P

We had just better hope that it wasn't X-Com that programmed the targeting.

Wait, they're obliterating a rock? I thought the laser was just going to burn a small hole, rather than incinerate the whole thing.

Near as I can tell, it's going to vaporize the whole thing, then sniff the smoke for chemical traces.

Yeah, I get the concept of burning something to determine what it's made of, but I thought it was just gonna be a small burn rather than setting a phaser to disintegrate :P
