Shortage of Corona Beer Hits the US:  Corona, the fifth-best-selling beer in America despite horrible taste ratings, has become so popular here in the US that there is now a shortage and the company is considering building a plant in California to meet demand.  Interesting, but my question is, what’s the point of building a brewery in a state which has no water?…

Methane in Mars Meteorites Suggests Possibility of Life:  Researchers say that methane, a potential sign of primitive life, has been found in meteorites from Mars, adding weight to the idea that life could live off methane on the Red Planet.  That’s great news, because I identify with being a Martian more than an Earthling.  In fact, as a kid, I would often draw myself using the green crayons.  And while I never became a Martian, here on Earth we do have Wal-Martians - and the smell…
