I'm a middle aged, middle income, middle class man living in the middle of the SE England commuter belt. How am I doing? Fair to middling. I have a wife and two kids, a clapped out car and and a souped up bike.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
In the vast scheme of things, statistically ET is likely to be out there. Whether we will ever find him, or whether any meaningful dialogue is possible because of the time difference, but more importantly because of the gulf of intellect, psychology, etc, is another question (or possibly more than one question). Hell, most of the time my wife doesn't understand me, and we've had 23 years to practise.
