Martian Farts?

BBCnews is carrying this article summarizing a somewhat startling discovery about Mars:

Methane has been found in the Martian atmosphere which scientists say could be a sign that life exists today on Mars.
There are two possible sources: either active volcanoes, none of which have been found yet on Mars, or microbes.

O has an active volcano in her butt right now!

Good for O.

As for the active volcanoes, I read an article awhile back that basically stated that Mars can't have active volcanoes anymore - it's apparently cooled too much over time.

Guess that leaves cows and pigs as the best source...
