Alien...sigh. Alright, fine. It's literally the largest dildo ever farted out by one of the universe's massive black holes. Happy?

I keep hearing that aliens don't exist.
So why are we spending so much time and money on looking for them?

Why would you believe someone who tells you that something doesn't exist when they haven't even looked for it?

Given the size of the universe, it's bordering on ridiculous to believe that aliens don't exist.

However, suggesting that they're actively visiting/surveilling/interacting with us requires a degree of evidence that has yet to be met.

I'd be more concerned if it was venting fusion exhaust to change vectors. As it is, we don't have any of the assets that we should have to chase it.

There was a line in Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) in response to the Air Force asking for evidence of UFOs, someone brings up their being a on-the-scenes reporter for 30 years and they'd never managed to catch a car accident on film.

Now there is a subreddit dedicated to *nothing but* car crashes.  Half of liveleak is russian dashcams.

The ubiquity of cameras in a single generation has slain more monsters than Hercules.

the opposite of charity is justice: There was a line in Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) in response to the Air Force asking for evidence of UFOs, someone brings up their being a on-the-scenes reporter for 30 years and they'd never managed to catch a car accident on film.


Wouldn't a reporter/camera crew logically be responding to the news of a crash, and thus necessarily arrive after it had happened due to how the way, y'know, time works?

It's like that old logical fallacy "why is your [x] always in the last place you look?"  Because logically once you found it you always stopped looking for it, dumbass.  That's how cause/effect and linear time work.

I'm rather surprised that NASA hasn't radar imaged it. At it's current distance, it would be pretty easy.

Has anyone EVER said that with a straight face? I've only known that as a silly joke.

That's where I stand.

Humanity will probably die alone because we are not being watched over by invisible omnipotent and omnipresent aliens that don't reveal themselves because they judge mankind to be wicked. What do we call those guys?

In theory someone rubbernecking could get into a crash while the cameras are rolling

They simply aren't is my guess. (We've probably all seen this, but it's worth posting for those who haven't.)

Either life on other planets isn't as evolved as we are (yet?) Or they are so far advanced that we're like a flea in the sand of a huge beach... if a  explorer sets foot on that beach for the first time ever, they're looking for life on their own level and not particularly concerned about us.

My guess is the latter. Earth has gone through a few different periods of dominant life forms. We're the latest and smartest, sure, but we're still evolutionarily young on a universe scale.

They don't exist? Then we need to disband ICE and stop building the wall.

"If, as expected, the telescope fails to pick up any intelligent broadcasts from 'Oumuamua, the observations are still expected to aid scientists in understanding the body."
Listening for NPR and all they get is Top 40? Why listen for radio broadcasts at all? Figure 8.7 million species live on earth and we are the only one using radio, they might just as well survey the asteroid for signs of pizza shops.

Actually the Fark Headline made me think of Surfing Bird. Though I see its a direct quote of yours.

Can anybody tell me what that clip of the guy saying "That's a Penis" is from?
I have seen it quite frequently here on Fark, but don't want to try Googling it.

Based on the actor pictured, I'd have to say "Night Court"
