Ground Control To Major Rainy

For generations now, mankind has been transmitting information around the world. Since 1897 when Guglielmo Marconi sent that first message across the water, we have transmitted information. Morse code, radio television and now gps and data streams all ricochet around the world and radiate into the deepest darkest reaches of space. If there is intelligent life out there they probably think we are annoying as hell. With all the noise radiating from this spinning ball of dirt we are like that kid at the stoplight who's trunk lid hops up and down with the concussion from his car stereo. Knocking little old ladies down and deafening small dogs, they cruise around oblivious to those around them.

With this in mind I figure that if there is going to be all this noise for alien life to listen to, I may as well contribute a little craziness to the noise. My blog is now officially being transmitted into space.

The idea was born of the folks at Mindcomet who figure that if these poor creatures are watching our television streams they will get a definitely tainted idea of what the race is like (Think of the movie Galaxyquest). They figure that if the aliens get our blog streams they will ignore the images of war and destruction that are the network news feeds and instead peruse our blogs. How this will endear us to them is a mystery to me, but now they can look through mine as well. Then again, this isn't the first time I'll have been called a space cadet right?

I think that the net result of it is they will either ignore that planet that is like the Winnebago on blocks neighbor of the galaxy, or they will show up one day with really good medication so that we can sort our act out and get things in order. If they go by mine though, I think it can be agreed that there will be trouble.

So, if the aliens beam down to my town and they all have big red noses, I'll know who to blame, right? ;)

When the aliens come and suck out our brain matter to fuel their computernoids, I holding you responsible, Rainy Pete.
