Aliens?

Written By: Sy - Jan• 12•11

My wife’s brother, for some reason, wanted to talk about aliens, so he says to me, “you believe that the possibility exists that there are aliens, right?”

I should have just said “yes,” but for some reason of my own I decided to be difficult, instead I said that I had no idea.

So he says, “”I’m not saying that you believe in aliens, I’m only saying that you have to admit that the possibility exists that there are aliens.”

So I say, “I don’t know. Give me something to go on.”

So he asks do I really think that we could be the only life forms in a universe this big, and I say, “yeah, because all that proves to me is that the universe is big.”

Well, he ends up saying that he does believe that the possibility of aliens exists, but that he doesn’t believe in UFOs (incidentally, I know that there are UFOs), because it would be impossible for people from another planet to come down here and dart around in the sky like that, because that would defy the laws of physics, and any physical entity that entered our atmosphere would be bound by these physics laws and he tells me that I have to agree with that, right?

So I think about it for a moment and I say, “I don’t know, what about Superman?”

He just stares at me for a second, gets up and says, “You know what? The possibility exists that I may never talk to you again.”

Personally, I don’t think that that possibility exists either.

“Wait a minute, he doesn’t believe in aliens, but he believes in UFOs?”

“Sure, what is a UFO?”

“An Unidentified Flying Ob…..oh.”
