And how would that oil get there, exactly?

A planet would have to have low-level plant life to produce oil.

And besides, we're having difficulty getting the oil in Prudhoe Bay and the Gulf of Mexico... I doubt we'd try to get it on Mars. The costs would be beyond astronomical. Can you image how much a barrel of oil would cost from Mars? Wow.

But yeah, oil on Mars is improbably if not impossible since it's a by-product of plant matter.

Because there's no advertising in the forums, which I think would make it self explanatory since you are aware of that policy.

Yes, I'm aware it was a joke, but the precedent cannot be set or else there's no way to shut down additional advertising attempts. Acs knew better than to post that up to begin with.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Ah...didn't realize that was the same thing. I've seen a bunch of eBay links before that haven't been removed, so I figured it was different. :-) No worries.

Btw, there's a bunch of them in the Wii vs. PS3 thread that have gone untouched. ;-)

The difference is that the ones shown are not for personal profit. ;-)
