What makes a typical Setizen?

What is it to be a Setizen?


Any humorous or serious thoughts welcome.

Truth or fantasy are also welcomed.

What does a typical Setizen eat?

What do they wear?

What are their beliefs or politics?

Are they lucky in love even?

All are fair questions.

Even your own true story is welcome.

(No negativity towards others is accepted.)

Have fun in this thread.

Add pictures, youtubes, historic posts or anything that shares your ideas about 'Setizenship.'

A Setizen is a dreamer. We have all been dreaming to find some other out there but it was only a dream. Dreams die at dawn and now we are waking up to a reality which is ugly. I am confined at home now and cannot visit my sons and their sons because of corovirus. SETI@home was an escape from a sad truth.

You are right a future without SETI in our lives does seem somewhat ugly or at least dull.

I think if a Setizen was alive when Crystal Palace was opened they would have bought up all the first tickets as well as loads of popcorn.

They might have even snuck in their own homemade sandwiches.

What was it we all felt when we first got involved?

I can remember the changes and periods in my own life when SETI was there as a place to be.

I always thought this might be on a setizens playlist?

Perhaps make it some other Constitution instead, cRunchy.

A Setizen is someone that has a human curiosity about whether there are others like us out there, or even not like us. As per the famous phrase "Enquiring minds would like to know".

Yup :-)

What does a typical Setizen eat?

Er food. Of differing sorts depending upon creed and nationality. That goes without saying ;-)

What do they wear?

That all depends on who is asking and which way the wind is blowing....

...
That's normal in Birmingham though?
...
Are you referring to Birmingham on the moon or in Alabama? (No actually don't respond to that. Leave us guessing!)



Oh my goodness. When you called us Setizens to help you cool your GPU we didn't realise you had frozen it in jello. What the hell flavour is that anyway?

... and what's that big sticky outy thing!
