Grew up in a dump as a new-age Neanderthal. From the little patch of sky visible from the hole I lived in I was able to see various communications between other civilizations. Thought I'd join SETI to see if you've intercepted any of them...specifically the stuff from my friend Gits who I was listening to quite a bit.
