Always wondered why the comets don't just melt (or get pulled in) when they pass near the sun.

Hum: It's because they're big and tak a long time to melt as well as also having some rock. The tail of the comet is the evaporating stuff, eventually it would all go away to pretty much nothing.

Warwagon: Ice is not necessarily the same thing as water ice. Anyway, the proof that there are aliens is the great big UFO that's probably flying along side it ready to pick us up.
