thats a good link, thanks!
I noticed it had a link to an article about "extremophiles" of different types
http://www.livescience.com/animalworld/050207_extremophiles.html [Broken]

and also a link to a news item about evidence of methane on Mars

It doesnt make me believe or disbelieve anything
about the liklihood of finding microbic life on Mars
but it is surely thought-provoking

Although the conclusion is still speculation, I love how it stimulates scientists to study similar findings on Earth. If no non-biological processes on Earth are found to create these gasses, it sure strengthens the life on Mars probability.

Along those lines, I saw some pretty pics of "star" sand-dunes which have stimulated people to speculate as to mechanisms that might have formed them and to look for similar dunes on Earth.
In case anyone is curious:

here's more geological speculation (about formation of Valle Marineris)

mars seems to have "Marsmerized" a bunch of earth geologists both pro and wild-type
and stimulated them to think, as you say
