This and That

A short video shows how to open a can of food without a can opener. I'll have to try it someday.
Some guy is suing NASA for not taking a closer look at an odd formation on Mars. It is a rather remarkable formation. Even more remarkable that it apparently wasn't there earlier on.
I'm not convinced yet on the story about a guy that claims to have drifted from Mexico to the Marshall Islands living on turtles, fish and birds. It took 13 months, he says, and claimed the life of his fishing partner. Fascinating story, if true, but I'll play devil's advocate:

The basic story sounds believable and some evidence supports it, but I can't get over the picture of the guy. If someone spent 13 months at sea his skin would be much darker- more likely almost black. Look at his face and hands in the picture. He's pretty much white. I've spent a day on the beach and come out looking a lot worse than that. 

Someone replied to my comment to the story that the guy's boat had a cabin on it. Good point, but he'd still have to spend a substantial amount of time outside the cabin looking for food. He should be half baked by now.

Paint me skeptical for that reason alone.

Watch for the NASA lawsuit to be thrown out of court. There's no grounds for suing NASA because NASA's not investigating the things you want to investigate ON MARS.

Secondly, the mystery ROCK has been explained:

not only will your food be impregnated with bisphenol A but you'll get a healthy dose of metal shavings as well;-)
