Spaceflightnow is carrying this update on recent findings regarding the Huygens Titan probe data. Scientists have now created a model that explains current observations and data by positing an ocean of liquid water mixed with ammonia that lies under perhaps ten or fifteen miles of methane-rich ice. Oh, and volcanoes that spew liquid methane. No, really!

According to Amber, I spew methane from time to time. Typically, it's not a liquid, though...
I would hope not Ron. That could burn through the furniture like lava.
Wouldn't liquid methane actually freeze my cheeks together? I just looked it up and it freezes at ~-275 degrees F. Of course, this could change for the methane hydrate.
Of course, if you're making a comment about the general nastiness of my 'eruptions', that's completely different. That could very well burn through furniture...
