It would be an awful waste of space if we, this planet, were the only things in it.

btw, i'm not any smarter than anyone else. i've just had the opportunity to watch a lot of shows about it on the science, history, and discovery channels, and remembered a lot. someone else figured that crap out. someone, not in touch with aliens - i assure you, figured it out. far smarter than you or me.

c'mon, wouldn't one of them spill the beans?

nanoo nanoo.

(yeah, i watched that too. )

I think there are others out there, too. My uncle has long used this quote for his email signature:

i was only kidding.

the show was great until they went into that bizarre theme of the bees, and the weird bits about the smoking man, and such.

it just happened to be shot in and around vancouver, b.c..

i did an informal "x-files" tour of their shooting spots with a buddy when we went skiing in whistler/blackcomb years ago.

i was a true fan of the show until they went off their rails with the bee stuff.
