Heard that on the radio today. It's something I heard Carl Sagan speak about at an event at (I think) Temple University back in the '80s. First he waxed eloquent at great length on how advanced their technology would have to be to get here, then he HOPED the morality and nobility of their culture would have kept pace with the technology, and then he pointed out the possibility that they may not recognize us as any more sentient than we think whales are, or even if they're humanoid, may see us as "savages" and not treat us any better than the Europeans treated native peoples of the New World, and he wrapped up with the observation that contacts of cultures rarely if ever end to the benefit of those who are "discovered" and often ends in their extermination.

Provocative field of speculation. Maybe Doug Adams had it right.

We've had Martians here on our lil' ol' village Horsell's common for decades (See 'War of the Worlds' or Google 'Horsell Wikipedia').
Old hat.

There is no reason to believe we are the only life in the universe, and if they can get here they are already far more advanced.

This is an awful suggestion. What will I do between 2 and 3 every night? And what will I do with all this aluminum foil?

They're out there right now...just...sitting, staring straight at the windows, not twitching a whisker but always.- even when I turn out all the lights - always looking at the right window, looking right at me. It's creepy, I tell you. Something not right about them cats.

It is my great hope that in future, in the polite society that is SD, the rather delicate topic of my whiskers will never again be broached. I mean, REALLY! Have we lost all sense of etiquette?

So sorry! I know I am a troublemaker! I am truly sorry to speak of such things on the SD....must remember to only speak of them on the TT.

You, Goddess, are utterly blameless. The very model of propriety. Worthy of a nod from Emily Post. My reference was to...your sainted mother. I do believe she actually said my whiskers twitched! For the second time in less than a week, I say: the CHEEK!

Harrumph.

Go in peace, Goddess. Your driveway is safe from the likes of me.

And, besides, I actually traveled to Florida in a protective capacity. I'm told Felix has a bit of extra time on his hands of late. Who knows whom he might be targeting!
