Primitive Aliens!

– – I, for one, like the thought of primitive aliens so that we could feel superior to them. We’re all heard that aliens may have seeded earth with life in the long-ago, given the technological know-how to build the pyramids, and other great stuff. But forget about awesome aliens for now, and consider aliens that are below even ourselves on the evolutionary scale.   Such aliens might exist as methane-based life on Saturn’s moon, Titan.

Now Saturn, while it has really cool rings, has no liquid water on its surface.  It does, however, have lakes of liquid methane there.  While you’d hardly care to vacation on Titan, exotic primitive life forms may exist by feeding on organic chemicals such as methane.  Scientists note that lack of hydrogen and acetylene near the surface of Titan suggest that it is being consumed by something there…

..and wouldn’t a methane-eating pet beat a Chia Pet any day?!

    I thought the lack of those two substances was due to Titan being an artificial satellite built by descendants of Earth’s Eternals? According to Marvel Comics, anyway.

    The leader of the Saturnian Eternals, for the pop-culturally unaware, is a wise old man named Mentor. And, he has two sons: the purple Darkseid impersonator called Thanos. And, the philandering redhead named Eros (a.k.a. Starfox).

      Addendum: The image shown is from John Carpenter’s version of “The Thing,” which is a wonderful flick to watch whenever you’re in a dark mood although not for those with weak stomachs!
