Science does not say that the light from stars is reflected light. Stars, of which the sun is one, create their own light. The light from Mars is reflected. Compare the light from Mars with that from Venus. You will never see a fully illuminated Venus from Earth because it is between the earth and the sun. Since Mars is further away from the sun than Earth, we get a fully illuminated disk.
This post just illustrates how ass-backwards Carico is in her thinking. She possesses a very special kind of stupid.

You do understand that a planet and a star are two different things, don't you?

Carico is either the most brilliant troll in the history of trolldom, or is dumber than a rock. It's so hard to tell.

Carico has once again made every last person in my math class look like a genius

Maybe we houldn't make fun of Carico--it sounds like she's brain-damaged or something.

Dykitty, how can you damage what you don't have?

The light from Mars is reflected sunlight. The light from stars is produced by the stars themselves. Mars is never more than about 250 million miles away, and less than 150 million miles from the sun. The nearest visible star is about 100,000 times further away than that.

Mars is a planet, not a star. Planets shine by reflected light; stars shine by emitting their own light (\"powered by hydrogen,\" as you put it, at least most of the time).
This is stuff that the average kindergartener has no trouble with. So why does Carico?
1/22/2007 6:29:55 PM
Carico is truly incredible. FSTDT is almost a fan site devoted to her. And I? A worshiper.

Carico, you've won a lifetime supply of these:
Congratulations. Your mother must be so proud!
1/22/2007 6:39:02 PM
How entirely sure are we that Carico is not a troll laughing at the people who have actually believed her inane utterances were for real?
1/22/2007 6:52:23 PM
Awesome... I mean just absolutely awesome. I love (in a pity kind of way) Carico.
1/22/2007 7:14:33 PM
The ignorance of people never ceases to amaze me. Just the other day I had to explain to an adult why the sky is blue, who then said my explanation was a good analogy.
I explained further that it was a scientific fact, not an analogy.
( I wonder how someone can be educated to the level that they know the word 'analogy' but don't know what a fact is.)

A planet != a star. I've known that since ... well, actually, I don't remember not knowing it.
1/22/2007 7:49:20 PM
This is the point. Carico is a troll trying to break the record for longest time mistaken for the real thing.
1/22/2007 8:15:05 PM
Mars is powered by hydrogen...? Oh Lord, no one can possible be that stupid.
1/22/2007 8:23:03 PM
Isn't the light from Mars reflected from the Sun? Like the moon? Muppet.
1/22/2007 8:39:37 PM
I just want to know who these scientists are whom Carico is claiming declared Mars to be powered by nuclear fusion. Somehow I expect them to exist nowhere except in his/her mind.

1) Stars provide their own light. it is the MOON that reflects sunlight.
2) Mars gives off light? In the sky, it \"glows\" because of the lgihts around it.
3) Wait...Did you just try to compare Mars to a star? Oh please no.....Fuck no....

I just scored 18/20 on that.
I had to lie through my teeth to do so, though.
1/22/2007 9:56:07 PM
Nah, nobody said Mars was hydrogen powered, that would just be silly - they hadn't invented hydrogen fuel cells when they built it, so obviously it runs on clockwork and steam.
