Universe, I am soooooo disappointed. The one thing I truly wanted [View all]

for my birthday was waking up to the happy news that there was one less particular carbon-based (assumed, never proven) life form no longer wasting oxygen. Realllly, is that too much to ask???

Sighhhhhh. Off to drown my sorrows in the bubbly stuff I had chilling in anticipation of that happy event.
