Life Out There Somewhere......

I am absolutely convinced there is life on other planets somewhere in the universe.

When you consider how "large" our earth is, and then think about the fact that it is a mere pinpoint in the vastness of the universe, it just seems inconceivable that we are the only planet with intelligent life. "Intelligent" being a relative term, of course. The earth is 93 million miles from the sun, and yet our solar system is tiny compared to the rest of the universe.

I wonder if the "people" on these other planets are behind us or ahead of us in intelligence. If they're behind us, someone is going to have a tough time explaining the internet to them. And the infield fly rule. And why two wrongs don't make a right, except in algebra.

If they are ahead of us, why haven't they found us? What if they don't like the names we have given to their suns, stars, and planets?

What if they live on Pluto? They're probably going to be pretty pissed about getting kicked out of the universe.

Earthlings are so cocky.

Just some of the things that occupy my mind on a cold Monday evening.

I apologize for sharing them with you.

And the platypus will also add confusion.

My co-workers want to know if you have your own opium den.

I think about this stuff all the time. I just know there is other life out there, and my wicked imagination goes into hyperdrive (pardon the sci-fi speak) when I think about what they look like... How advanced or not they are compared to us. My hope is it is a lot like Dr. Who, but my fear it is a lot more like a petrie dish in your local high school science lab.
