Lakes on Mars?

When I see a headline such as "Evidence found for Ancient Mars Lake"my first reaction is to see if its true. My first place to check is of course Bad Astronomy. As of this posting their isn't anything about this which increases my skepticism. If there's convincing evidence of water on Mars, even in the distant past, it would be huge. I'm not saying it's not true, I'm just saying that I want further verification from people who know more about the subject matter than a journalist. A good reason why I like blogs, its easy to get info from actual experts in various fields.

But this is a freaking awesome video, unless of course you have an ego then it might hurt, unless you're Zaphod Beeblebrox...

At the very least, if there were Martians at the lakes gozillions of years ago, we know they had fun. Lakes are fun.
