Petition o' the day

And it is a good one: "We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to Reveal The Truth About Extraterrestrial Visitation To Our Planet".

I think this is what is known as begging the question, but I think Mr Tony should run with this and answer in the following form: 'There have been no alien visitors to this planet'.

As the quite wonderful Paul Fussell notes in 'BAD or, the Dumbing of America', '[aliens] always like to land in the American Southwest - never near Cal Tech, Stanford, MIT or the National Academy of Science'.

UPDATED

Dizzy has pointed out this exchange to me:

"Norman Baker: To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster whether the Defence and Overseas Secretariat received a copy of the Government's Unidentified Aerial Phenomena report.

Hilary Armstrong: The Defence and Overseas Secretariat has no record of receiving such a report".

One has to hand it to Baker, he is no longer content to bore for Lewes, he also has designs on red rose territory. As to the report, I suspect they did receive it, but it was unidentified....

I noticed that years ago, as well. They always landed in the Arizona desert, or Utah, near a little used secondary road. Never on Houston's Southwest Freeway or O'Hare Airport.

I also noticed that the people they abducted never had doctorates or any other advanced qualifications. I have often wondered if close encounters of the third kind are a result of spending way too much time answering "yes" to the question "Do you want fries with that?"

Apparently Russians and Argentians are the most likely to be abductd by Aliens. More so even than Yanks.

Catholics too feature highly, wheareas Buddhists and shintoists have the least chance of being abducted.

some facts just stick in the memory.

as I mention on my blog I saw three very odd UFO's over london this weekend.

As space is infinate then it follows that there will be something out there that visits us.
I jus hope the f***** arent muslims

Silly sausages: they DO land near those institutions. It's just that the institution engages in a bit of technology transfer with the aliens in return for fuel and food, then they go on their way. That's why we have the ocassional great leap forward in design and thinking. But they keep it secret or the funding dries up. Aiding and abetting, don't you know. And Elvis lives, Co2 is a pollutant.

Calm down! We can only be visited on our planet by more advanced beings!

Perhaps as Tibetan Buddhists live on top of the Himalayas, they can kind of wave them away?

"No! No! Got milk! Ice cream man been already! Got Linda McCartney Vegetarian Burgers! Nothing, thanks!"

In the words of that old song from way back when:

Three little men in a flying saucer came down to earth one day.
They looked left and right a bit, but didn't like the sight of it, so one man flew away.

Two little men in a flying saucer came down to earth one day.
They looked left and right a bit, but didn't like the sight of it, so one man flew away.

One little man in a flying saucer came down to earth one day
He looked left and right a bit, but didn't like the sight of it, so quickly flew away.

Sensible fellows.

I suppose the cabinet could be explained away as being composed of extra terrestrials.

How many times do I have to say this: This planet can only be visited from outer space by beings that are more advanced than we are. That lets out muslims and the British cabinet.

Although said extra terrestrials might have stopped off to pick up some prospective cabinet ministers from a less developed planet en route for Earth. Unlikely, unless they were especially sadistic.
