Woman wants to be contact for aliens
upi. ^ | Sept. 26, 2010

LONDON, - A Malaysian woman says she wants the United Nations to pick her as the first point of contact for aliens trying to communicate with Earth.

If she has her way, astrophysicist Mazlan Othman will be the person space aliens are referred to when they say "take me to your leader," The Guardian reported.

Othman is presently head of the U.N. Office for Outer Space Affairs, or Unoosa, and was expected to tell delegates about her plans at a Royal Society Conference in Buckinghamshire, England, next week, the report said.

In a recent talk Othman said, "The continued search for extraterrestrial communication, by several entities, sustains the hope that some day humankind will receive signals from extraterrestrials.

"When we do, we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject," she said.

Her plan is to make Unoosa the coordinating body for alien encounters; U.N. scientific advisory committees will debate the proposal before it reaches the body's general assembly, the newspaper said.

It would be funnier than hell if the first aliens asked, “Do you have anybody who can speak English”?

Finally, some serious agenda is coming out of the U.N. making the organization worth the billions it costs. /s

I have no problem with privately-funded enterprises doing this, but the U.N. is supported in part by U.S. taxpayers.

Woman wants to be contact for aliens

Well...ok, but she'll need to move into a trailer in Mena, Arkansas, have at least half her teeth pulled, and marry her cousin.

After close examination of the evidence at hand, I must declare she would be an excellent choice. If we were dealing with The Planet of the Apes and we needed a Chimpanzee.

Soooooooooo…is this to be the conduit for those also representing the Moon God (aka Allah) and their contacts here on earth or does the Foreign Nations Association have an outlet in the Middle East which handles such matters?

What about Jerry Brown being available as a third tier choice; just pointing out the obvious.

Last night I had a horrifying dream that in broad daylight over "the city" (whereever that was in my dream), a gigantic spaceship with flashing lights slowly descended and hung over the populace, soon accompanied by a smaller (but still pretty big) spaceship, lights flashing. It was being announced in the most public way: WE'RE HERE. WE'VE ARRIVED.

And all I could think in my dream was, the world that we've all known for centuries, up to the elections in November, Palin, Rove, Pelosi, Reid, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- all of it changed in a 30 seconds; all of it is consigned to memory. Obama, Iran, Castro, Tea Party vs. Establishment -- suddenly looks like mere piffle.

It was a truly terrifying dream.

What a pantload.

From what I’ve seen of the critters that hang out at the UN the aliens have been there for years.

No I'm not joking. It was the scariest dream I can remember having. What struck me in the dream was the odd realization, as I stood there looking up at these huge ships parked above the city, that in mere seconds, our "normal" template was wiped out, all its most pressing concerns up to those seconds, suddenly reduced to irrelevance; we could wish we only had such paltry problems as Obama or a late notice on the electric bill.

Quix, I hope your scale of "near" is so vast that "near" is 200 years from now! I so SO want for us to have these disputative UFO threads for the rest of our long lives, that 25 years from now, we're STILL sparring with the folks who think UFOs are all a bunch of hooey. I REALLY WANT THAT TO HAPPEN.

I recall that either during the dream, or in the waking moments following, still in a semi-dream state, I thought of the irony that you and I wouldn't be going to Free Republic to say, "I told you so!" Either because Free Republic wouldn't be accessible (I think that was the reason in the dream) or because at that point, neither you nor I would give a crap about saying, "I told you so" to anybody. And THAT thought, the jump to Free Republic, could have been what brought me to the relief of full wakefulness and the reassurance that it was just a dream and "normal" still existed.

I would PREFER THAT BY FAR, TOO.

. . . that such were well after my lifetime.

I’m convinced, utterly convinced, it’s not that far off whether that’s months to a few years.

Of course, some of us have thought it was less than 10 years off for 30 years.

Sigh.

A man was walking his dog and his dog took a dump on the side walk. The man bent over and was scooping up the poop just as aliens landed. They approached the man, watched him as he was scooping up the poop, turned to the dog and said “Take us to your leader”

Yet it is OBVIOUSLY

TONS AND TONS CLOSER NOW

than it even was a year ago in terms of the abundance of incidents and even the MSM chatter about such topics.

Only fools have failed to see that.

. . . totally blind, ignorant utter fools.

Correction -- I realize reading the post above that it looks like you were in the dream, Quix; you weren't. What I meant was that the realization came to me that folks like me, those who've made it clear that we think alien intelligent beings from other worlds in the universe who are or will be dabbling in human-earthly matters exist, and that poo-pooing UFO sightings and denying the possibility are the reactions of willfully blind and/or ignorant folks.

"When we do, we should have in place a coordinated response that takes into account all the sensitivities related to the subject," she said.

I'd laugh if suddenly radio contact was made, and the alien voice that came over the air waves was that of Ronald Reagan.

Definitely grist for the Not-A-Ping List!
