It's akin to having rich people visit poor nations to give them some form of aid. Feel good PR.

if it 'were' aliens.

You needed the subjunctive instead of the past tense.

Yes, we're way past tents, we're living in bungalows now.

"They do a really good job of tracking stuff.."

Then why can't "they" tell us if it was space debris or not?

Obviously they were going for dinner at Greektown.

They need to look at what's missing.

That may take a few days.

wxboy: Why the hell would they visit Roswell?


They didn't, they crashed outside of Roswell in the desert. The military took the crashed remains to an Air Force base that is arguably "in Roswell". That's the only reason Roswell is mentioned instead of "Middle of the farking New Mexican Desert". It's shorter, and conveys the location better.

But in general, those who are crashing aren't so much choosing where they want to be when they do it... as accidentally ending there. At best they are trying not to hit something while doing so (see Sully trying to avoid hitting populated city and aiming for river).
