Since the 1930's, Amateur Radio operators have been keeping logs of "out of routine" traffic. These are signals that they hope might be from exterrestrial life.
Since 1966, SETI has dominated the unbelievably immense acre+ dish at Aricebo, Puerto Rico, trying to find intelligent life off of this planet. In the last 44 years, they have documented ONE (that is 1) reception . . . that could be a cell phone call bouncing off of a cloud bank -- which is known to happen.
Then there is the strange case of Qsl3ygz Glx3rq (Pronouncd Joe Smith: the '3' is silent) who claimed to have been stuck in Los Angeles for the last 85 years. He said that his boss (whose name is completely unpronounceable) stuick him in LA until he pays that gambling debt -- which Qsl3ygz discounts as he claims that the cards were marked, the dice were loaded, and besides that the boss was cheating.
He informed me that this was the craziest planet he had ever seen, and he'd seen some prize loony bins before.
If you had your way, what could you recommend to make this world a little less gonzo?
