Tommy: Seven new planets raise some interesting questions

A story in the journal "Nature" reveals that astronomers have discovered seven earth sized planets orbiting the same star 40 light years away. This is significant for two reasons. First of all, researchers believe this is the best place to look for life outside of our solar system.  Secondly, if you plan on going there, you’ll no doubt have to go through Atlanta.  No matter where you’re flying you HAVE TO GO THROUGH ATLANTA. I once flew from New Orleans to Houston and had to go through Atlanta. What sense does THAT make?

But we’ve no time to ponder the mysteries of commercial air travel.  Let’s ponder what intelligent life on another planet would be like and how we would handle it. Would they be smarter or dumber than us? Would they be friendly or hostile?  Would they more resemble East Bankers or West Bankers? And what if by some stroke of mutation the humans were the pets on their planet and the dogs were in control?  If that happens I’m putting my entire 401k into chew toys and fire hydrants.  Oh…and I’d also hate to be a letter carrier.

What do you think it would do to the world economy? Religious beliefs? What if it was like a twilight zone episode and they all looked like pigs? What if they WERE pigs? Would eating bacon then become politically incorrect? I don’t know but if they had some kind of zapping device that caused a stinging sensation I’d probably skip it just to be safe.

Do you ever wonder if aliens from another planet have already visited and the government is keeping it under wraps?  Are aliens already among us?  If they are would that perhaps explain those directives you keep getting from corporate that seem to be from outer space? 

As for me I think aliens are already here exerting supernatural powers. How else could you explain Atlanta blowing a 25 point lead in the Super Bowl.  Why would they do it?  They were angry about ALWAYS HAVING TO GO THROUGH ATLANTA.
