You know, I'd been reading Heinlein for like six, seven years before I realized why he used "Venerian" for "Folks From Venus," and the epiphany was courtesy a health class and the mention of "venereal diseases."

That doesn't have much to do with this very cool article, though.

Pictured cults of Pantera and Cheap Trick getting set for their pilgrimages to the black void, initially.

Several explanations were put forward ranging from the presence of a loose soil to a coating of metal - specifically, tellurium.

Earth sci knowledge has gone begging. What's Tellurium actually composed of?

Ground up remains of film industry assholes from the Telluride Film Festival. It has proven to be a rich loam of fertilizer.

Easy: boys don't know shit about romance. Then they 'mature' into men...

Venus has Phosphine in its atmosphere but while they're "with no currently known abiotic production routes" they're not 100% proof of life either
