Well, I find this very interesting. Thanks for posting, Cher. I believe it was the Salton Sea in CA recently, where tiny creatures were found that live on methane. We really need to improve Science education in our schools.

:No self respecting alien would want to come here, unless to use the ocean for a potty break. After all, that's what alot of humanoids are usuing it for. So far, no one has figured out how to use the flush handle.

The idea is valid, but not new. Asimov did it first with his novel of a hot-gas balloon voyage into Jupiter's atmosphere, then Ian Stewart and Jack Cohen took it further in the novel 'Wheelers'. Much like the Star Trek fliptop communicator being the first cell phone and Heinlein's 'Starship Troopers' introducing us to powered exoskeleton armour, 'Science Fiction' proves itself ahead of the game.
