However, because I am an incredibly magnanimous good sport…

Here’s the link to SETI. Among other things you can download SETI@home software that makes your PC part of the gigantic analytic Borg that is scanning the static from the stars and looking for evidence of a signal from ET. Massive computing power has been expended on this for the past 10 years and so far: nothing. I think that trend is going to continue.

Tell me honestly (cuz I’m genuinely curious): does it irritate you/make you upset or sad to hear somebody say “We won’t get off this rock and we will never contact other intelligent life on other planets”? I would be very interested in the reply. Don’t worry about hurting my feelings. I’m curious about what the *emotional* response is to my assertion. Help me out by speaking frankly in my comments box. Think of it as a sort of survey.
