What makes you think they haven't?
Intead of showing us a #ty black & white mediocre closeup, why aren't they using the mahli cam?
Because they don't really care about our guesses.
Why guessing like fools when we can have a crystal clear image?
Exactly right. I agree. You can bet it's out of the question that they'll show us questionable pictures from Ma- oh, wait. Right I forgot about the OP and the picture that shows questionable objects. Dammit, NASA. Y U RUIN MY CONSPIRACY THEORY?!

Well I do not believe there BS.. I believe that NASA is at least 50 years ahead of what they are passing off as Technology and the latest thing. I believe they are already on the Moon and Mars.. they are just feeding us crap is all, can't have us find out we are not alone and they are all lying to us...

I would hardly say it's falling apart. It looks like a piece of protective tape has peeled off.
Nasa close up
No surprising the amount that must be on it. I guess some will loosen up with weathering and peel off.
But then again..... it could be a stowaway cockroach

Well, here's my opinion.
First NASA lied to us because there were aliens in fleets flocking to earth. They had to 'wash' out images of the sky that we see in google sky, because it proved this.
Evidence #1. Aliens Are Coming.
Then, NASA lied to us because there were structures on the moon. They had to 'photoshop' out images of the surface that show areas where the Greys have things and stuff.
Evidence #2. Aliens Are There.
Not long after this, NASA lied to us because there are cities on Mars. They didn't do a good enough job of pixelating the houses and it looks like a 5 year old must have done it.
Evidence #3. Aliens Are There, and We Can't Work a PC.
And lets add a few random things in here and there, spice up the stew, so to speak. Like, the tether incident, the orbs that appear in uniform patterns, add some "What if E.T. was based on a realz??" and then we leave it a few months. Apart from Zorgon.
Now, NASA lies to us because there is indeed life on Mars. It's that small we need to see a drawing of it to actually see it, and not only that, but out of a gazillion places to land, the curiosity lands right smack bang not on a dead seafloor of decaying fishies, but where there is a single lone dead fishy, that has awaited millions of years for a curiosity rover to appear and rumble his pad.
Evidence #4. It's Life jim, but somehow strange fish on mars that have been dead quite a long time deserves the entire conspiracy of an entire government(s) colluding to hide this small fish, for fear it will cause panic and throw the entire human population into utter chaos, the likes we've never seen in all of history.
Someone might even blog about it.

The rover took a scoop of dirt, and this fell out :scary:
NASA say...or would like us to believe should i say, that this is part of the rover. If this were part of the rover then how comes no one saw it in the scoop before? I believe this was on Mars before the rover arrived.
What do you think? Do you buy the official story or do you think this could be the first piece of evidence pointing to life on mars? NASA has said they will do no more digging until they can work out what it is.
NASA officials say the Curiosity rover has made its first scoop of the surface of planet Mars and has detected a bright object on the ground. Officials said in a news release Monday that they suspect the object might be a part of the six-wheeled rover, but they won't sample or scoop anymore until they figure out what it is.

name more inorganic things that are reflective and shiny and are on Mars. If it's a dead martian roach that's a damn pretty solid conclusion right there isn't it?
Well, in general there could be shiny crystalline pieces of rocks. It could also be not native to Mars, and be a tiny piece of plastic or something that came from the rover.
I'm not saying it IS a crystalline piece of rock, or even necessarily a part of the rover, but you asked to "name more inorganic things that are reflective and shiny and are on Mars", so that's what I did.

A small piece of NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity has apparently fallen off into the Red Planet dirt, scientists announced today.
