surfing the red planet

Nasa has confirmed today that they believe that water is flowing on Mars.  How fkn amazing is that??  Don't you want to go playing in that landscape?

What would I wear though?  My eternal lament.  I hate shopping and really wouldn't know where to begin to buy a Martian wardrobe.  I'm thinking board shorts over bikini bottoms just to be safe, though.

Speaking of Mars, I highly recommend reading The Martian by Andy Weir.  It's definitely nerdy and somewhat science-y, but even if you aren't, you can skip over some of the calculation parts and just go with the story.  It's like watching a superhero movie.  You don't necessarily need to know how Iron Man's suit works to be entertained.
