    Speculation on a science forum I regularly follow says this could do with some recent findings regarding previously unknown chemical compounds forming a basis for life - the so-called "shadow biosphere". (When I say "unknown chemical compounds" I don't mean the compounds themselves were unknown, but rather they were never known to form living organisms). Chemistry was never my strong suit and we'll all have to wait until tomorrow, but arsenic was mentioned as being one such building block.

    I'm not expecting anything earth shattering, unfortunately.

    Even as a kid in HS I used to wonder why "life" was strictly defined as being carbon-based. Who says?

    I happen to know that silicon and iron based life forms exist.

    Ehh that's no big deal. Every single one of those elections was a no-brainer except 2000. So he really only had to get lucky once.
