"Touched directly or come within the atmospheric envelope or any other celestial body "
................I'm strangely aroused by that line!

Yea, like I wanted to be analy probed.

1211.100 - Scope This part establishes:
NASA policy, responsibility and authority to guard the Earth against any harmful contamination or adverse changes in its environment resulting from personnel, spacecraft and other property returning to the Earth after landing on or coming within the atmospheric envelope of a celestial body; and security requirements, restrictions and safeguards that are necessary in the interest of national security

Uh who gave NASA authority to protect the whole planet?

Jesus did.

the U.S. government was very concerned that contact with extra-terrestrial bacteria could result in a worldwide plague.
This was put in place for a reason.
Thank god FB- is on an island.
He will only love me from afar.

Or Jesus, I can't remember, We were kinda drunk when NASA asked

It is said that Jesus, the carpenter, was the progeny of a celestial alien.

"No officer, I wasn't anally probed by ET... really!"

This was repealed in April of 1991. It also made it illegal for anyone whow asn't authorized to come into contact with a craft that had originated on Earth, gone into space, and come back, which I think was the true intention of it.

"Provide for guard services by contract or otherwise...

So when the aliens get here, NASA is authorized to hire minimum wage rent-a-cops to stand guard over their wheels?

If someone keys the spaceship, they may open up a can of extraterrestial whoop-ass on us...

Damn it! Only now do I find out it is against the law to talk to those damn pesky aliens that keep taking people and gang probing them! Now that I know it is illegal I will report them to the authorities right away.

So that means the government know there are aliens. I wonder what they look like, and most importantly, do they have good boobies?
2002-01-26 12:37:46 AM  
I hate it when things are illegal!

Let me get this straight. Aliens kidnap you, implant probes and medical devices in your body and the Feds throw you in jail?

bonobo, that was its only jurisdiction. It's the law that made it illegal to own moon rocks.

I debunked this one on Usenet about 15 years ago, but one of the great problems with Urban Legends is you can't kill them by flooding the Hart Senate Office Building with pool chemicals.
