After 47 years on the planet, I have had to teach myself how to walk again at age 17, sailed around the world, worked for the U.S. Senate and for the President of The United States. I am retired now, so that I *might* enjoy my time. My hobbies include photography, history and women. However, not necessarily in that order.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
1. Hell yes there are space brothers. Humans will discover them when they are good and damn ready to deal with us! The potential benefits are to numerous to even try to mention and the dangers are that they may notice just how evil we are to one another and decide that the universe doesn't need us and our messed up attitudes.
2.Yes. Let's keep it simple, something like "come on and sit a spell, kick your shoes off and relax".
3.For the cool screen saver! Just kidding. We need to make contact with our space brothers and sisters to let them know that they have place to vacation. SETI is a great project and would be even better if we could ask the Vorlons to take all the Republicans with them when they leave.
