Post Area 51 In Nevada

So ;

I see a news article where some boob posted 'let's all storm Area 51, they can't stop a large crowd !' and apparently some of the foamers are actually going to go out there and suffer the heat and wrath of the U.S.A.F. ........

Loonies will loon I guess, I hope no one gets hurt .

Flying saucers and little green men. People being abducted and experimented on by aliens. I always noticed the front page of the National Enquirer as I waited for the groceries to be ran through.

Then one day there was the article man has baby. That was just a little too much. I ignored the periodical after that..

Until I was abducted by an alien myself. The wife said we should get married. That resulted in a hoard of little aliens. Getting into everything at home for a few years. . I have lived with an alien so long now. I forget what it was like to once be free.

I know a guy who is full on loopy for alien and govt. conspiracy regarding same. With some people I try to talk to them about the physics involved and the one a mega gazillion chance a species from another planet would ever find us. With this guy I don't even bring it up. I grew up in Roswell, NM and I mentioned that one day on some unrelated matter and holy crap, the guy's face lit up. I told him sorry man, I didn't even hear about the alien thing until 20 years after we moved away. Likable guy all in all. Oh well.

Might be a way of uniting us all.

The distances are so vast it will be tough meeting up with other life forms. I have no doubt there is life elsewhere.

You don't need to storm the place. Theres a tour bus that takes tourist out there every month starting at the National Atomic Testing Museum in Las Vegas. I highly recommend it.

And then we are also separated by time. Up until a couple hundred (less) years go there were no radio waves eminating from this planet. I gather than about 2 to 10 light years out such wave turn to white noise anyway.

And if an advanced species chanced through here a few hundred million years ago, life was what, primitive organisms in the oceans? There are just so many stars out there and I suspect most of them don't have a planet with liquid water.

Post Atomic Museum

It's in White Sands New Mexico and I highly recommend taking the time to go there .

Absolutely the middle of nowhere and it's hot like Death Valley .

At the same time, there are old missls and things to look at (! V2 rocket !) plus a _lot_ of reading from those who were there if you're so inclined ~ I found that stuff fascinating .

Projections have always indicated there is a strong possibility that life exists somewhere out there. The distances are so great though it may not matter much.

The same applies to the chances of man ever even finding a place out there he can survive on. It would take generations of people in travel to even reach it if exists.

As time relates to the universe mans existence on earth is probably of little consequence. We are a very fragile specis.

Since for all practical purposes there is no where to really go. We probably should be making it job number one to at least attempt to keep the earth as it is as much as we can. There will always be a strong risk of a natural disaster or uncontrolled epidemic. No matter what we do.

The large reptiles from the past where far tougher than us probably. Nature had little trouble making them extinct.
