I do wonder what it's like to be that crazy. It must be hard to be afraid of everything all the time and to have no one take you seriously.

What's really sad is that if it ever does happen, the tinfoil hat folks will be the ones to sound the alarms, and people will dismiss them because the majority of the time they are crazy. The actual government will more than likely miss them (we can only monitor a tiny portion of the sky, which is why just recently - 2009 - we had a ~41000mi passby of a meteor which we had no idea was there) until some tinfoil hat person sounds a horn.

Popular media will be explicitly forbidden from the government from saying anything to prevent a mass panic, which will leave less popular/more fringe media promoting the stories. People will chalk it up to fantasy like 9/11 truthers. Ultimately people will probably dismiss it until the day things actually land, and even then unless they land around the entire planet people will still claim that it's craziness and hysteria.

Its kind of amazing how controlling media can control what people perceive as reality.

Frankly, im bored. So an alien invasion would at least spice things up a bit.

MoronLessOff: kiwimoogle84: ChipNASA: HotWingConspiracy: Better than the alien rape ships.

I like Alien Rape

The humans have ways of shutting all that down as long as it was a "legitimate" probe.

I know I'd shut down under threat of legitimate probe.


I'd probably kegel the crap out of them. I aim to please.

There are those who believe...

that life here
began out there,
Far across the Universe...
with tribes of humans...
who may have been the forefathers of the Egyptians...
or the Toltecs...
or the Mayans...
that they may have been the architects of the Great Pyramids...
or the lost civilizations of Lemuria...
or Atlantis.

Some believe that there may yet be brothers of man...
who even now fight to survive--somewhere beyond the heavens!

Relax, they're only here for the extremists. The brain damage that makes them so crazy is considered a delicacy by the aliens. It'll make for an interesting election as the GOP will be largely decimated, and the Democrats will lose a fair hunk of their animal rights block. NOW and NOM will be left with a couple secretaries and the janitorial staff.

kvinesknows: also.. most Farkers will be safe from being eaten because Anyone advanced enough to travel that far and build ships that large already knows a low fat diet is best. Sure we might be slaughtered for special occasions like Christmas, but the moment we introduce them to HAM and BACON they wont even bother with us anymore.

That's not particularly good reasoning. Any race that came to Earth to eat humans is probably expending more energy than all of mankind's industry has ever produced to travel light-years across an unforgiving interstellar void. Humans are not particularly nutritious as earth's animals go, plus we reproduce slowly and are supremely inefficient at converting feed to body mass.

Let's face it, if aliens want to eat us, it's as an exotic delicacy, not a staple food. Kind of like those milk-fattened calves that get daily massages and wind up getting sold for like $100/lb.

/ There's probably just one or two other things about this story that don't quite make sense...

I love it ... the article's headline starts with weasel-words: "Some say huge ships ..."

You know it is going to be quality reporting!
