DarkIye Re:Arrested for knowledge? WTF? (741 comments)

Is the Earth Special?

DarkIye Re:Moon's effect on earth (745 comments)

Living thing: a 3D pattern that attempts to reproduce itself.

I think we are looking for carbon-based life. Energy-based life would not be easy to make friends with (let's face it - at the end of the day, we're just lonely).
