Given that petrochemicals are formed from decayed organic matter - if this holds up after further testing it appears there was once at least some form of plant life on Mars at some point in its past.
That in itself is VERY intriguing as, if true, life may not be as rare in our universe as some believe after all.

Well organic matter doesn't necessarily mean life, Mars could have been covered with the same primordial soup that the Earth was before life ever began, or it may have come from somewhere else and ended up there as the result of a comet impact, it's an interesting find though.
Oil mining on Mars, there's a notion, incentives to get capitalist interests in space exploration is something we really need.

I told my daughter she left her necklace there when we stopped for lunch.

If I've told her once, I've told her a million times... "When we're off Earth, don't leave anything behind."

Actually, it is my six pack ring from my vacation on Mars. Let me just say that when you have been with a martian babe, you never go back. Orions are actually based on martians with the martians having a few improvements.

This. The site is written by Xavier Jenks, who is a fictional character who's best known as a prank pulled on Bigfoot hunters. Despite not existing and getting his doctorate from a university that doesn't exist located in a country that doesn't exist, he still became one of the country's foremost Bigfoot researchers and is still listed as a research team leader on a couple Bigfoot hunter groups.

NASA still hasn't confirmed their unannounced history book discovery.

Interestingly, Curiosity did find several pieces of plastic, and is expected to find more. Bits of the skycrane are scattered all over the area, and pieces of packing material are still falling off the rover itself. Any piece of native plastic they find would probably be disregarded because of the plastic they're dropping along the way.
