Germs from Jupiter? Viruses from Venus?

Germs from Jupiter? Viruses from Venus? Nope, just live space-borne bacteria discovered floating around Earth. "Although the bugs from space are similar to bacteria on Earth, the scientists said the living cells found in samples of air from the edge of the planet's atmosphere are too far away to have come from Earth."

Just another blasted double post. Don't mind me, I'll be complaining randomly throughout this month.

It looks like bclark is guilty of the same thing.

Why post a double-post post when there's one right above it?

Mea culpa. Live and learn.

Because mine has a funnier joke, extending from the running multi-person joke on the front page :)
