A Take Off From the Crazy Martian Thought: the Snegurochka Zone

Picture from here.

This is a take off from the First Crazy Thought (*) post which positing martian life getting pounded into oblivion despite being far ahead of Terran life.  It plays into a comment James made and one he restated on his LJ with respect to the scenario.  

We know about the habitable zone, sometimes called the Goldilocks Zone: not too hot, not too cold, but just right...for water worlds.  

So, my crazy thought proposal is...for worlds and moons where methane plays the part of water, like say, Titan, the just right zone for those worlds ought to be called the  Snegurochka Zone, named for the Snow Maiden in Russian folklore and more specifically, in modern times, daughter of grandfather Frost (Ded Moroz).  

*.  Second crazy thought will go up tomorrow evening.
