I wanted to add a couple more photos of Waterbears. They're just amazing. I'm a big fan of Waterbears.Bowing Bowing

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

The waterbear.

Tardigras for the motherfucking win. They are the true overlords. They've already over run the planet and now they're working on toughening themselves up for the inevitable fallout when we blow ourselves to bits. pffft, fuck you little fragile humans and your bombs, I can survive the direct rays of the sun .... motherfucker.

Since they can withstand such extreme temperatures, also the vacuum of space and still survive I wonder if they came here on a comet. I seriously think maybe they did.

I just want to hug him and hold him and take him home. I'm thinking about keeping a few (?) as pets. Think all I got to do is go outside and throw some moss in a Mason jar. It's only fair given that we will be their pets soon enough.

Given that and that they are capable of outlasting the tremendous timespan associated with interstellar travel, that certainly seems plausible to me. They could even be the ancient travelers who brought life to the planet. The moss piglet is not dead, all hail the moss piglet. Yes

Ok, I'm going to post one more nifty video about tardigrades and then I'll shut the hell up. Blush

I thought tardigrades were given to a lazy student?

NOTE: Member, Tomasia uses this site to slander other individuals. He then later proclaims it a joke, but not in public.
I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

Not likely as they have the same DNA as all of life on Earth. No
That would be far too coincidental. Like, ridiculously so. Shocking
