The sarcastic Mars rover is on twitter ….

Remember to check out Curiositys twitter messages: http://twitter.com/MarsCuriosity.

And YES indeed – Curiosity has landed…. absolutely mindblowing amazing stuff!
Make sure to watch the landing video (nasajpl)!!
Certainly, some of us still find it rather hard to understand that
all of this actually worked……

And here is where it gets hilarious. The poor lonely robot, 248 million km away, turns out to be a rather sarcastic little fellow. And a poet as well….
A least thats the impression you get when you read his twitter ramblings: SarcasticRover.

They’re checking out my systems and software… got nothing to do but look at rocks and ponder death.

No that’s cool JPL… I’ll walk for over a month to go to some unpronounceable shithole so you can look at a rock or whatever. NBD.

Ready to start driving around in a pointless f–king circle looking for some kind of magical dirt or whatever. GO SCIENCE!

Now the Olympics are over, I assume the media will go back to ignoring athletes and celebrating intellectuals, right? LOL SAD.

Hey does that Mayan calendar bullshit apply to Mars, or can I just watch you all die from here? MAYA2012!!!

Hilarious stuff!
