Picnik (a "free" photo editing software that pulled me in quickly to get the $25/year premier version). I was amused by this picture thinking that these mushrooms really DO look like aliens. Or what I imagine aliens might look like; I'm not sure I've ever seen one.
Humor is not one of my strong points, and every time I read a funny blog I think I'll try it out again. Sorry to say, all my readers are going to be subjected to this every once in a while. I do believe there are aliens out there, a product of my many years of reading science fiction.
What do you think? Are there such things as aliens? And how would we know them anyway, since they would be, um, alien?
In the 1950's hubby swears he and about 50 people along a California highway watched a round, shiny object in the sky. It stayed in one place for a time, started moving then quickly disappeared.ReplyDelete
Do I believe in aliens? Not really, but then I am not completely closed to the idea. I'm in the "show me" camp.
Aliens exist. I believe it. While I never shook hands with one. I have been in Hanger 18 at Wright Patterson Air Force Base and if I told you they got pieces of flying saucers in there, you'd think I had been drinking. I won't tell you anyway, because the powers that be have been known to threaten people and if they didn't listen they take them up in an airplane and either drop them in the ocean from 10,000 feet or on Salt Lake City, Utah. When the person hits the ground, having prayed all the way down, they either wake up in Paradise or never wake up at all. But it gives the janitors something to believe in. Blood is tough to remove.ReplyDelete
Having said that. I won't tell you anything I already know.
To me, with the billions of stars (or "suns") out there, the idea that our planet might be the only one capable of supporting life, or the only one currently supporting "intelligent" life, seems extremely far-fetched and a bit arrogant.ReplyDelete
But have we been visited? I'm not convinced. However, Mom once told me Dad's Air Force crew was once subjected to a long debriefing after flying alongside...something strange...for several minutes. To my knowledge, Dad never mentioned it. And Mom could have been pulling my leg, of course.
I agree DJ. When I was in the Northern part of the country I always thought that all those 20 gigantic windmills were all made by aliens LOL Im just being silly, but that's what my mind tells me.ReplyDelete
Sorry, my brain won't even go there. I'm an overcooked pragmatist. Have enough trouble reading fiction, let alone science-fiction.ReplyDelete
You should meet my ex-husband. All doubt would be removed from your mind!ReplyDelete
I don't know if there are, but I'm sure they wouldn't taste as good!ReplyDelete
Seems like there could be intelligent life somewhere else in the universe. But I don't think much about it. I do like Abe's response, though...that's got me thinking again.ReplyDelete
The whole notion is alien to me. I guess it is possible, but I am a pragmatist. I gotta have proof positive.ReplyDelete
Yep. I live in Nevada - I may not have seen actual aliens, but I've seen UFO's.ReplyDelete
Do I think there is life on other planets, yes.ReplyDelete
But have we been visited by extraterrestrials, no.
The mushroom aliens are too funny.
It depends on the type of mushrooms. If you find the right ones, please repeat after me 1000 times, "I do believe in aliens". Now on to our secret plan. The earth WILL be ours. :)ReplyDelete
I just don't know!ReplyDelete
Nope, never met or seen one..yet:)ReplyDelete
When my husband was in the service he had night guard duty at the Yuma Proving Grounds base (USAYPG - it’s a general-purpose desert environmental test facility) and he knows, he is sure, he saw aliens in a flying object. Some others on guard duty at night saw them too. He said they could not discuss it.ReplyDelete
I believe in aliens. I think they walk around with us, unrecognized for what they are. How else have we made such giant strides in technology and medicine? Of course, I could be quite wrong!ReplyDelete
(Chuckle) oh, I think we'd know. Something would give them away. It's like you sort of know when someone is not from your own town, isn't it. You just know.ReplyDelete
I am also a believer. It would be arrogant to think we were the only intelligent race in all of the universe.ReplyDelete
