But don’t be fooled cause these are no ordinary future martian omlets; quite the opposite, these eggs, once they get exposed to a certain amount of heat, explode as insanely volatile acid bombs. The fluids they secrete, when they come into contact with living beings, cause them to literally explode from the inside out after only moments of exposure. Read More »
