People ask me all the time, what's the harm in bad thinking? Who cares if someone wants to believe in astrology, or UFOs?

OK, go back up and read that first line of this post again. Slowly. Move your lips if you have to.

That's the harm. That guy was the Minister of Defense of an entire nation. And he wants to use UFOs to solve our problems.

Sigh. Sigh100.

This is so ridiculous, and a waste of time. Why look for alien technology to solve global warming? How stupid! We should be using it to find out who killed Kennedy, what really brought down the World Trade Center, and if Wernher von Braun was actually a Nazi or not.
