Curiosity Killed The Cat And The Rest

What really happened

Google+ is an amazing platform – though I’m still a number 1 Twitter user but G+ comes in second. One of the most powerful feature of G+ is the hashtag view. Much like Twitter, searching a hashtag will open a stream of public posts by users in and outside your circle. Best part is, it streams it live. You can play and pause this stream as you read through them to catch up.

Since Curiosity landed on Mars (see my previous posts here and here for photos), there has been a number of images and memes about the rover, some funny, some cheeky, others are just darn lame. A lot of them though were based on “curiosity killed the cat”. The following are a collection of images I found while going through #Curiosity on Google+.
