Battle of the planets: The First Vote

Who says Earth is the greatest planet in the solar sys? Not me, I just live here. I'm going to leave this up to you fine people. Each day this week we will be pitting planet against planet. You choose which of the two is the better planet. Finally it will conclude next Monday with the final winner.

There can be only one.

Battle 1:




Contrary to popular belief men are not from Mars, nor are women from Venus. In fact that would really only be possible if humans were amphibians. Since there's the little issue of reproduction.

So who wins this round? Cast your vote below.


  1. Venus all the way. It looks like a bowling ball I once used...

  2. Venus just looks pissed....another vote for Venus

  3. I'm not allowing myself a vote, but I agree Venus is pretty spectacular looking.

  4. VENUS. FYI...Battle of the Planets was my favorite cartoon growing up.

  5. I wondered if anyone would catch that reference. It wasn't my favorite, but I did love it.

    I'll leave the voting up till Thursday, but It's looking like a clear cut winner here.

  6. I want to say Mars, I really do. But you've got to respect Venus for crushing anything that tries to land on it. We might actually visit Mars someday soon, but it will be a cold day on Mercury if we're ever able to visit Venus. So for the sake of all the money it's losing on tourism, I'll vote for Venus.

  7. Another vote for Venus here. I don't want to conform or milk the women-men/mars-venus thing. You've gotta admit, though, that Venus looks pretty, while Mars looks rather unaffected.

  8. Robyn, Mars is stoic, not unaffected! puleese!

  9. I'm going to be different and pick Mars to go against the odds and I like an underdog.

  10. My vote goes for Mars because everyone else if voting for Venus. I mean, they are both cool...although Venus was not cool until they got those infrared photos like you have shown. Before that, it was PRETTY, but not actually cool. Now it is very cool, it has pancake lava flats, a temperature hot enough to melt lead, and an acid atmosphere.
    Mars, however, was already cool, so there is where my vote will have to go.

  11. I have to give Mars a vote! We wouldn't have martians without Mars! What do we call aliens from Venus? Women?
