So, hey, is “The Martian” based on a true story?

My question is, can this be real? Is it possible . . . is it even *vaguely* possible . . . that some actual people out there think that “The Martian” might have been based on a real story?

Or are they all faking it?

Incidentally, the comments at that Buzzfeed post are also funny, so if you have a moment, read through those, too.
