This whole thing with NASA's discovery of arsenic-eating life forms, it's pretty cool. I mean, these bacteria use the poisonous element and use it to build their DNA instead of phosphorus. Not only does it give a possible way to clean up any arsenic spills, it also gives a look to other possible life forms not on Earth. Seems like a pretty big deal.
So why is it so hard to find info on it? This is science. This is important. More important than a face-sucking session between Twilight stars, than that Delaware senator candidate and her book deal, than whether the brunette chick on Glee will get replaced. (Though that last one might not be a bad idea, I can't stand her voice or her character.) But seriously. Extraterrestrial life > pop culture.
