Huh?
I must've missed that story - please provide a link.
Enquiring minds just have to know!!!
Was on CNN news & Sky news & also mentioned in passing on BBC TV.

Was never on any of the more obvious online links, but was part of the illegal foreclosure practices during post bush era years 1 to 3 that finally got squelched by the fed.

Apparently there was ONE vety high profile case in Texas that made the headlines on this side of the pond.

Happy hunting.

Have a nice day: Ag

Seriously? 17 Billion similar planets orbiting suns, and not one of them supports life? Is that what you actually believe? And that's just in our galaxy, which is assumed at being roughly .0000006% of the 'known' universe.
Similar in size, but perhaps lacking in some or many other things necessary to support life as we know it. Our problem is that too many of us take Star Waes and Star Trek to seriously and don't accept them for their real aim of simply being money making entertainment.

Oh, so that's what 'our' problem is then?

Think of it this way. You have an infinite number of monkeys banging on an infinite number of pianos, over an infinite amount of time. Eventually one of them will reproduce a sonata by Mozart perfectly.

The universe is infinite. See where I'm going with this?

But thanks for answering my doubt, I see we are talking about two entirely different perspectives. No need to respond further.

Theoretically possible, I suppose, but it still is a long shot at best.

oh,I have thought of it. Most people do'nt like being rated as lesser beings. If our radio/video broadcasts are received to a people more advanced,we're seen as foolish. Prove our world as such.

Not if they get our Monty Python videos. Then we'd be looked upon as the truly superior beings.
