The Aliens and Me - Take Two

Ever since my recent movie encounter with aliens I haven't been able to get enough of the Ancient Aliens TV show and alien type things in general. I blame part of this on the fact that my hometown is near Snowflake, home of a legendary alien abduction true story kind of movie. That being said, I must have a pension for insomnia and terror because why I subject myself to this continually, I don't know, but I've come up with some ideas that I think we need to work on.

The episode that was on Ancient Aliens was all about crop circles and aliens trying to contact us. My first thought - Why hasn't anyone ever written back? I mean it. I am half way tempted to go borrow someone's corn crop in the hopes that I get a "sign" so that I can write back. I would hire those two guys who said they've been making the signs all these years and right next to the alien's symbol I would have them write:

"Hi! What?" with an arrow pointing to their sign. I might even have them throw in a smiley face. Then I'd wait to see what happened.

Maybe they don't realize we have no clue what they're saying. Just because they're super smart and have flying machines does not mean they know everything. I'm certain there is just a language barrier issue going on and with the right techniques we could work around it.

Also, maybe we need to quit making so many mean movies about them. Not only would that solve my problem of wanting to watch those movies and then losing sleep, but I'm just saying... if I was an alien and there were a zillion movies about me killing all of humankind I would probably not want to ever let you know I was here or, if I did,  I would attempt to let you know but then run for fear of being shot.

Last week I watched I Am Number Four and I suddenly felt much better about the whole alien thing. I mean, if aliens exist I would like to think they're just like us in the sense that there are good and bad ones, just like people. I would just want the good ones to come say hello instead of the man eating kind. I would have no issues with the nice ones whatsoever. In fact, I would love to have an alien friend. I'm sure they would have great stories to tell and traveling would be way, way easier. Imagine how fast we could get from point A to point B with their fancy little UFO's. No more waiting at the airport is A-Okay with me.

So there you have it. I feel like I've almost completely gotten over the terror instilled in me from watching The Fourth Kind and can now move on in my life with thoughts of happy, friendly aliens that do not want to freak my mind out with owl trickery.

Do you have any movies that freak you out? Or maybe even an alien I can make friends with?

I read this article just a couple hours before reading your post here. Weird.

Very interesting. I should contact these crop circle designers!
