There were only repeats on TV, so I came on here and re-read this thread. It was quite funny, but now I can't read it again for at least another year to give myself a chance to forget the ending.
I'm going to tackle San Francisco Bay next ...

Yep, been awhile since I have a notification from this topic. I guess crazy in the White House sucked up the normal crazy.

I wasn't around for the beginning of this thread. Can someone summarise it? Did we find out where the aliens were?
My guess is they're somewhere else, hence the name.

They left to Make Aliens Great Again. They decided it formed a better acronym than the previous Make Vogons Grate Again.

The reason no one can ever find any actual aliens is because the wall is keeping them out.

See gorgeous? Even Placid knows one can't be outside its body, Placid may say one can die and become no one in some form of conscious thingee, Yet, she can't prove it, so the current view is that no one can be outside the body, one is conscious because of a brain. Do you think someone can exist outside its brain? :roll:

Science doesn't prove anything, it tests.

You won't find many credentialed scientists who will claim that aliens don't exist. Many however will claim that they don't believe they exist, based on the existing evidence.

It's not a black-or-white issue. You don't get to say either way, whether it's true or not.

There are lots of people who claim they can travel out of body. But not a single one has ever passed the test of reading a note placed near their body when they are "travelling" and reporting the contents of that note after waking up again.

"Maybe this, maybe that..." Do you actually weigh the things you believe, or do you just choose what you fancy?
