Fwd: Breaking News –SETI receives radio transmission from Outer Space

(American Press) The SETI Institute has just announced that for the past 2 days they’ve received radio transmissions from the M13 Globular Cluster. Transmissions they believe could be from an extra-terrestrial race of beings.

Located 25,100 light years away, M13 contains hundreds of thousands of stars many of which would be capable of supporting life-sustaining planets similar to Earth.

Although conducting further tests, SETI believes that there’s a high probability the transmissions they’re receiving are from an extra-terrestrial intelligent race sent out millions of years ago. They have confirmed that “the transmissions are definitely not man made”.

When I saw the thread title I thought "If this is a joke I hope the original poster dies in their sleep and their entire family is killed in a car fire right before."

And of course, what happens?

16-12-2005, 02:20
That's becauser you're a Texan, Slappy, and will believe ANYTHING if it include's the word GLobular, or Cluster.

But it got me too. Prollu cause I'm a cajunand we fall for the words Conducting, and transmission. It's all genetic Slappy, don't worry about it.

Before I forget:

You guys can't be serious about thinking that this was serious....:eek::eyebrows:

<remembers this for April Fools Day:p>

16-12-2005, 02:34
Well, we ARE allowed to hope for something cool aren't we?

I hate you so much right now.



16-12-2005, 03:24
the majority of us hate you right now... we want something cool like this to happen!

16-12-2005, 03:45
When it *does* happen, I hope that Warseer isn't the first place we find out about it.:eyebrows: It will be scattered across every news outlet on the planet within seconds.

Besides, I wouldn't post something like an email FWD, it would be:

OMFG What the hell? Do you believe it? skjg;woih sfsfeiffjifj as the aliens took over my brain using the implants from their previous visi......right, I'm not supposed to talk about.....I'll stop now.

Stop hitting me.:(

Okay, okay, I'll shut it off.....

ihateyou ihateyou ihateyou

for a minute when i saw the thread titles i took it with a grain of salt and thought whatif, SETI@home has finally maybe found something

how wrong i was

damn you to the 9th circle of hell

16-12-2005, 04:43

I hope you die a horrible death involving matches, a cardboard tube and a befuddled hampster. Preferably one with a knife strapped to it's back.

16-12-2005, 05:09
Wow, 'light.
I wasn't through the title before I was skeptical, and I didn't even check the poster. You just made my night.
Now I need to come up with something great for April fools...
And the other marks. :evilgrin:

16-12-2005, 05:25
Dear Starlight.

I'm going to stab you now.

*gets out a knife.*

You suck.

Why would radio waves sent from somewhere around 25,000 light years away take millions of years to reach earth?

16-12-2005, 07:00
God. Damn you. *smiley indicative of half-seriousness* :p

16-12-2005, 07:12
I contacted SETI and was given the following official statement...

"The chances of anything coming from the M13 Globular Cluster are a million to one"

...they said.

16-12-2005, 07:26
Before you post anything it should say "Will this post be a joke?" if you hit "Yes" then your monitor explodes sending shards of glass into your face, killing you slowly.

16-12-2005, 08:38
Well, I won't be particularly cruel, goes against my principles.

But you know, it would be poetic justice if the guy farted next time he was intimate with his/her Significant other.

16-12-2005, 08:59
i haven't read this link (too long for when i got it late last night) but i'm reliable informed that for the alien seekers out there it is very interesting?


apologies if it's cack! :)

16-12-2005, 11:55
i think we ban starlight, or at least kill him

16-12-2005, 12:28
You bastard

I do think that the transmission should have just went;

16-12-2005, 12:52
RAAGH RAAHG RAGH! I wanted to say that!

I doubt there's anything worth living for now, or fighting for, or even anything worth dying for.

I want my mouse click back.

You bastard

I do think that the transmission should have just went;
ULLA! :confused: Shouldn't there have been several "ULLAs" in that, if it was a communication.......?

I agree, though: "Ulla!" would have been nostalgically cool! (Or coolly nostalgic, depending on your preference.) :D

16-12-2005, 13:23
Yes, it's a promo for War of the Worlds, but it's cute.:D
Am I the only one that read that bit? :wtf:

No, you're not...... but apparently we form a minority! ;)

I did.
But it didn't say that on the thread title (should have looked to see who posted it i guess ;) )

Having said that.
I hope aliens invade and take only you starlight.
And me.
Then blow up the world.
And make me a god.
Oh, and maybe a few other people i like, not too many, just a handful.

16-12-2005, 14:35
Not making many friends today, starlight. :p
