More embarrassing will be the day our EM cluttered signal of porn reaches ‘others’. What would we think of a civilization which was so obsessed with the physical characteristics and interactions of a faux procreative nature? Our planet is wrapped in the EM smut of our porn transmissions. What good Angel would even approach such a cesspool of obsession? ... What devil could resist it!

My people said they were coming for me. I told them to hold off until the Mariners win the World Series. They’ll be back after an orbit or two...of the galaxy...

Somehow I knew you’d be a SCI 3000 fan.

“No one knows for sure what caused this signal”

How about liberal media signals.

If they want us to know they are out there, they can stoop to our level and bang messages out on hollow logs with long sticks.

Very good point, and a reason I have always been skeptical of 'UFOs'. Not that I don't think extraterrestrial life exists, just that if they could come here from interstellar space, they would be so vastly superior to us that, if they didn't want us to see them, there would be no 'accidental' sightings such as what we see now. I could be wrong, it's happened before.

Yup. IMHO, we're pretty arrogant for assuming that they'd want to talk to us. For instance, you're aware of the ants in your driveway, but you're not going to sit outside and try to have a conversation with them.

Stanley Kubrick gave a Playboy interview after 2001: A Space Odyssey came out.

In response to a question about the form of possible alien intelligences he said (and I paraphrase),

"If an ant on the ground scratches out 'Let's talk,' I'm not going to step on him. "

Definitely interesting, but not indefinitely. Thanks The Comedian.

What's worse than being invaded by aliens from space? Being invaded by Alien Horn Dogs from space setting up a base camp on Uranus!

And horribly enough, from all the alien abduction regression analyses I have read, that is pretty much what is happening (well, except for the base camp on Uranus stuff).

I like to view Waxman as more of a Klingon orbiting Uranus.

I've heard of laying on your back to view the stars. Butt oh my!

Finally! Proof people get a little bit lunatic under a full moon!
