Martian Civilization Destroyed by Fruits and Vegetables
MARS Scientists believe that the high concentrations of methane in the Martian atmosphere was the cause of the extinction of the Martian race.
Michael Knox of the American Astronomical Society said, "Martians fell victim to their incredible success at living into a ripe old age. Think of all the gaseousness associated with your average 80 year-old male Earthling, and then try to imagine countless longevity-minded entities eating nothing but fruits and vegetables well into their 800's.
"The life-shortening heartbreak of obesity would have been virtually unknown on Mars. Due to gravitational differences, a person weighing 300 pounds on Earth would weigh a slim and trim 112 pounds on Mars.
"Also adding to the Martians' ultimately civilization-annihilating longevity was the fact that the Martian year is nearly twice as long as Earth's. In other words, a Martian would have aged nearly two Earth years for every one year on Mars.
"Our long-standing belief that Martians were little, green aliens dovetails nicely with this theory. "People get smaller with age, and the greenness is explained by the miasma of chokedamp they left hanging in the Martian air with their collective flatulence.
"So what you have is a race of ancient little green gas bags. Given how many centuries each of these little men spent in his second childhood, it was just a matter of time before one of them played with a match and left the planet the residual methane-enwrapped ball of scorched earth we see today."
