    I could be persuaded that aliens are actually us, time traveling back for observation. If what people see is real, then it makes more sense because technology seems to be built upon current technology and preconceived human traits never something absolutely crazy. I think that's what hold me back from interstellar visitors, we like to put things in a way that we can understand, as imaginative as we are its always grounded in some human aspect. We can't comprehend beings that have no carbon base, etc... kind of like how everyone throws all these human components to the concept of God.
    This is one of the things I think of routinely - how absolutely ginormous the universe is. I’ll go down rabbit holes of just looking at galaxies and it blows my mind each and every time. To think we hardly know anything about our galaxy and then realizing there are an absurd amount of galaxies is wild.

    I said earlier on this CT that the deep sea might be the one of the scariest places, but I think I will say deep space is. The amount of stuff that could be out there that we do not know about is incredible.

    What are the best music venues? My favorite is the Mucky Duck in Houston.

    given how outmatched humans are, seems like either we're fucked or we're not and there's nothing to be done

    i feel like "craft that can go fast in strange directions" is achievable in less than 1,000 years

    1,000 years is guys on horses with spears to flying a helicopter on mars

    This is where I’m at. If these beings are really that advanced what the fuck are we going to do anyway?

    whole thing is dumb. people like it because mysteries are more appealing than complex political events of the day. would be curious to see if ufo talk intersects with more than just gaza violence
    Yep. Kind of like how white women got obsessed with true crime during the Trump administration.

    What could we do about alien super planes anyway? A hostile takeover would have happened years ago. If they invaded now, would the militaries of the world unite or would some countries try to make a deal with them? For all the fiction out there about this, any of those outcomes seem unlikely. Hell, if the aliens are intelligent at all, they’ve already read those books and watched those movies anyway. They’ll know our playbook.

    If they want to destroy the Earth and they have a longer lifespan than humans, they just need to wait a few hundred years and we’ll destroy it for them.

    So long and thanks for all the fish

  11. #1851
    I just hope the takeover happens after I'm able to get a PS5

    It’s possible that they’ve already taken over and they are the real deep state.
    Birds are real.

    It’s also possible that they came to the planet, saw a wide diversity of biological species, and have been try to reach out to the most abundant species on the planet, assuming they were in Charge. So they’ve reached out to menhaden, sardines, squid, Wilson’s storm petrels, and starlings over the last 17 years. Next up are all the different kinds of ants.
    Birds are real.

    apparently talk a lot about it, but mostly in a way that drives people to click links that generate ad revenue for a whole bunch of interested parties
    semi-aquatic like otters be.

    do you think this alien society that's buzzing us is capitalist or are they just checking to see if we've advanced past it

    Good question. Maybe they’re just hanging out using their advanced technology to mine crypto and joy ride every now and then.

    Morning nobody. And we will be fine. We have Jeff Goldblum.

    Good morning to you too. London is cool, though I am pretty sure 24 hours on the ground isn't enough.

    Mako, you rock out to any Zach Bryan yet?
