Create Your Own Mars On Earth

Creating your own Mars requires some special ingredients. This toxic cocktail demands metal oxides such as aluminium (causes cancer on animals when tested) arsenic, mercury, chrome, and iron (for your reddening agent); add a few rivers of water (occasionally taking the pH levels up to a staggering 13) and approximately 2000 acres of topsoil.


Sadly, side-effects over time may include death, severe cancers or burning.
