    Er.. that's quite obviously a Hindenburg-style blimp thing, whatever you call them.

    A Big Dirigible? A zeppelin?

    Yeah, I'll stick with Big Dirigible--only because I like the sound of it.


    It was probably Joe Smith or Brigham Young returning to voice their protests over Mitt Romney running for President.

    Yes, I believe in the possibility of life outside of our planet's biosphere. I also believe that 99% of the UFO sightings are bogus. I also believe we don't know which of the sightings would be in the 1% category.

    I've thought a lot on this topic. I agree that I think at least 99% of UFO sightings are bogus.

    I do think there is life on other planets, but I think that they are so far away that we will probably never have any contact with them. I still like to read science fiction with space travel and alien species though, and of course I like all the Star Trek series and Alien Nation (loved that movie and the TV show was even better - cross between science fiction and buddy cop show. Got into subjects involving racism a lot, but the "racism" was against the Newcomers, or Tectonese, rather than human races or ethnicities. I found that show fascinating.)

    I'm a bit skeptical about the claim that there's advanced life in Salt Lake City.

    With the universe having an incalculably huge number of planets, I'm inclined to believe there is intelligent life on one other than our own. I don't believe we've ever been visited by any of these other intelligent beings, though.

    With the vast number of planets in the Universe I believe that there must be life somewhere else. Intelligent life? A little less likely, but still probable. I tend to think that humans will be long extincted before any means of communication or contact can be developed.

    I believe in something a little different. I believe that there is life on other planets, but I don't think this life is anything like us. In fact, we might not even recognize it as life if we saw it. Or maybe they are invisible, or maybe they hover at a different level of energy then us, so we don't see them. If any of you have read the book "The Celestine Prophecy", you might have an idea of what I mean....

    I think this quote from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy sums it up rather nicely:

    "It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Therefore, there must be a finite number of inhabited worlds. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near to nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely the products of a deranged imagination."

    From the link in the OP: "Authorities are not sure whether any charges will or should be filed against Geery, but say he should be held responsible if the general population was ever endangered by his object."

    "His Object" is very phallic looking and DOES look like it could hurt someone!

    I'm pretty sure 100% of UFO sightings are bogus. Otherwise I agree completely.

    What are the chances that there is a more intelligent species out there than humans? I would say the chances are pretty high.

    Bit of a nerdy statement this, but life HAS already been found on another planet; Mars to be precise. Not the kind of life that everyone is looking for, but frozen-water. ... see link...

    Possible Life on Mars
