I cannot find the article, but legend has it Stadler lit a cigarette before he teed off on every hole.
John Kruk- He was filmed smoking in the dugout. A reporter after the game asked him are you setting a bad example for athletes. Kruk said I'm not a athlete, I'm a baseball player
No doubt. It's one of the most, if not the most compelling abduction stories there are.
I lean no. Most UFOs have been man-made advanced high tech flying objects. There are a lot of things that can be mistaken for not from this world UFOs.
That said, I do think there's life out there, but I'm not convinced any have ever visited here because of the sheer distance between possibly habitable planets.
Brennan, have you ever heard of the Savanne Road incident? Happened in the '70s before the road was paved but reasonably well-traveled. A number of people claim to have stopped and watched a UFO for about an hour including a sheriff's deputy or two.
(1) In the 13.8 billion years of this universe, life started about 3.8 billion years ago, and humans have existed for only 100,000-ish years.
(2) Humans developed the ability to leave the planet less than 100 years ago, about the same time we developed the ability to destroy ourselves.
(3) The nearest Goldilocks planets are about 1,000 light years away.
(4) Our scientists can (reasonably) dream of actually traveling, at most, about 10% the speed of light (i.e., getting there in 10,000 years).
Therefore, each intelligent life form out there has a small window in which it can engage in interstellar travel before it destroys itself, and the time that it takes to get from here to there is way bigger than the window.
And, in the very unlikely chance that aliens already got here, it was probably one or more billion years ago, and they saw that little or no life was here, and then left after recording a neutral reference ("Mostly Harmless").
Sounds interesting, but that article has a Great Filter - can you paste a bit? ThanksWe already have theoretical warp drives.
