Question of the Day - March 15, 2007

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Believe it or not, this was an actual question in the local paper last week after a strange light was seen hovering in my county.

Do you fear extraterrestrials moving into your area?

I said no. As long as they pay their property taxes and are good neighbors, I don't care.

As long as they like cats as pets - not appetizers, it's cool with me!

As a big lover of sci-fi novels.....as long as they don't want to harm the Earth, solar system or its inhabitants it ok by me.

Nope, I would love one to land so I could get a chance to have a look inside their spaceship.

My husband and his brothers/sisters were on the Indian reservation a few years as kids. They witnessed a UFO landing and something came up to their trailer house - they were all "knocked" out for a few hrs and all awoke at the same time! Many years later one of the brothers mentioned a mark on the hip of him and one or two of the other brothers (mine included). We don't know where it came from - it was the exact same mark.

Not as long as they let us pick their brains and find out all that they know, they are supposed to be way ahead of us in everything so I would love to know just what they know and what is in our future.

I can't say I'd have a problem with it. Extraterrestrials couldn't possibly be stranger than some of the other neighbours I've had over the years. Actually, if my neighbours were aliens, that would explain a lot of things ...

As long as they hover there Jan and not here, I do not want to be beamed up for any experiments

Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us.

I don't really believe in them either.

I wouldn't mind it, I think they'd bring a little pizazz here.

I had thought about that myself.

And what makes you think you are so special that they'd want you?

Aliens don't bother me, they can come and live here as long as they respect both peoples and animals, pay taxes and hold down jobs, and maybe help with global warming.

I was thinking the exact same thing.

When I was in high school, someone came in with a National Enquirer that had an article on "How to Tell if Your Neighbor is a Space Alien." Our Spanish teacher fit all of the qualifications.

GoldenKitty, I used to know a nice couple who had some similar experiences, and wrote a book about them. Alton worked for Xerox and Sandy was a professor at a nearby women's university. They said it had begun when they were living on a nonworking farm outside of town, and their teenaged children and some of their children's friends had also been taken several times.

They had a lot of books on the subject, including a beautiful coffeetable book on crop circles -- the first time I'd heard anything about that phenomenon. And while we were discussing crop circles, I had a very intense psychic experience with Alton, unlike anything before or since (and I've had a lot of psychic experiences!).

Sandy said she'd discovered a tiny implant in the back of her neck (this was many years before The X Files appeared) and had gotten it removed, and they had thereafter sold the farm and moved into town, hoping it would all end. At the time I knew them, it appeared to have done so -- but then I lost touch for awhile, and the next thing I heard, Sandy had passed away from a cancer... in the back of her neck.

Alton immediately sold their house and moved into the deep backwoods of Arkansas, where there wasn't even electricity... and no one I know has ever heard of him again.

Do I believe in all of this? Well... I hold out the possibility, yes. But I think it's more likely that they were deeply delusional, perhaps due to drug use extending back to their hippie days.

Still more likely: one of them was delusional... and the other went along with it for one reason or another, either because this delusion was easier to deal with than reality, or because they hoped the book would make them rich.

But again, anything is possible. There are some very convincing stories, and even a few photos and videos that don't appear to be faked. My own father saw something he couldn't explain near an airfield in California in the late '60s. And logically, it stands to reason that we can't possibly be alone in the universe... and if they're out there, and if they've figured out how to overcome the lightspeed limit... who knows?

As for me... one night near Valentine's Day a few years ago, I was driving home from a pizza place and I saw something oval-shaped and intensely red gliding very low over the city from west to east. There are so many aircraft around here that I didn't think twice at first -- but then I realized its shape was completely featureless, and its motion was strangely slow, too slow for anything but a helicopter, which the shape told me it could not be, or a blimp of some kind, and it seemed too small for that.

I was flooded with adrenaline, hands and feet numb, the whole panic response. I hurried to follow the craft, trying to keep it in sight, zigzagging through neighborhoods at serious risk of life and limb. This is what it feels like, I thought -- I'm having an amazing experience right now, this is really something!

I followed the thing for a good ten minutes, tracking it north/northeast across Carrollton and Plano, just north of Dallas. Finally, I got close enough to see that there was an enigmatic inscription on the side of the craft. It read... "Russell Stover."

So much for my own personal Close Encounter.

Don't mind a bit, as long as they're peaceful, friendly, and land in Jan's neck of the world!

CarolPetunia? For a chocoholic like me, that would be a welcome invasion!
