Mars Needs Rodents

This comic strip ran here a couple of years ago, but I thought I’d show it again, because it seems every other day now, the Mars rover Curiosity is sending back images of what seem to be crabs, women, the golden arches of McDonald’s. Well, at least that last one is feasible. I came across an effort to explain this the other day. It seems our brains are wired to perceive patterns in an effort to interpret our immediate environment. That should make sense to us. Every day I create a weird pen doodle, and you think, “It’s a homely man with a big nose!”
