Scientist: Alien life could already be on Earth

LONDON (AP) – For the past 50 years, scientists have scoured the skies for radio signals from beyond our planet, hoping for some sign of extraterrestrial life. But one physicist says there’s no reason alien life couldn’t already be lurking among us – or maybe even in us.

Paul Davies, an award-winning Arizona State University physicist known for his popular science writing said Tuesday that life may have developed on Earth not once but several times.

Davies said the variant life forms – most likely tiny microbes – could still be hanging around “right under our noses – or even in our noses.”

“How do we know all life on Earth descended from a single origin?” he told a conference at London’s prestigious Royal Society, which serves as Britain’s academy of sciences. “We’ve just scratched the surface of the microbial world.”

Astronaut says Mexico needs its own space program

Astronaut says Mexico needs its own space program

MEXICO CITY (AP) – A NASA astronaut says he wants to help Mexican officials start the country’s first space agency.

Astronaut Jose Hernandez says he has no plans to leave his job at NASA, but hopes to help Mexico’s program get off the ground.

Hernandez, the U.S.-born son of Mexican migrant farm workers who spent much of his childhood moving between Mexico and the U.S., lobbied for a space program in meetings with Mexican lawmakers Tuesday.

He says officials must invest more money in science, technology and education to make Mexico more competitive and diversify its economy.

Legislators have set aside 10 million pesos ($775,000) for the Mexican Space Agency in next year’s budget, but the program has not yet been officially established.

Astronaut says Mexico needs its own space program

This is terribly reminiscent of a story I heard many years ago. The Mexican government wanted a Navy, a big one. They wanted to be a world power on the high seas.

The Mexican government began to do research on exactly what it was going to take to build a Navy. They priced the ships they wanted to build and were sad to find that they were immediately out of luck due to the massive costs involved.

Not to be deterred, they then began to look into buying used ships from other nations, ships that were about be retired and decommissioned.

As it turns out, even that was beyond the price range of the Mexican government, so, they had an idea that maybe they could just buy one mighty ship, and the search continued.

They got the price of a used aircraft carrier, a battle ship, a cruiser, a destroyer, even a used submarine was considered. Again, ALL of these vessels were out of reach for the Mexicans.

It was at this time that the most brilliant Mexican designer to ever live came forth and offered a solution. He would build the Mexican government a ship, a submarine actually, and he would do so at a very cheap rate as well.

So, this brilliant Mexican engineer and his team begin construction on Mexico’s very 1st submarine, but, there was a bit of a glitch. There was only enough money to build a 2-man *midget sub*.

The work on this *midget sub* continued for several weeks and the sub was finally launched.

The crowd roared as the crew boarded the new Mexican Navy sub to begin sea trials off of the Mexican west coast. What follows is a description of the activities in the ensuing weeks.

The Capatin and Engineer are in position and the Captain says: “Senor Engineer, theese is your Captain, take theese submarine down to 50 feet and scheck for leaks!”

The Engineer replies, “Senor Captain, theese is Senor Enginner, the submarine is at 50 feet and we got NO leaks!”

The Captain says, “Senor Engineer, theese is your Captain, take theese submarine down to 100 feet and scheck for leaks!”

The Engineer replies, “Senor Captain, theese is Senor Enginner, the submarine is at 100 feet and we got NO leaks!”

The Captain says, “Senor Engineer, theese is your Captain, take theese submarine down to 250 feet and scheck for leaks!”

The Engineer replies, “Senor Captain, theese is Senor Enginner, the submarine is at 250 feet and we got NO leaks!”

The Captain says, “Senor Engineer, theese is your Captain, take theese submarine down to 500 feet and scheck for leaks!”

Sadly, as the sub was diving to 500 feet, it suddenly broke up and was completely destroyed.

Saturday Night Live Highlights Obama’s Accomplishments

Saturday Night Live Highlights Obama’s Accomplishments

It’s a sad statement of national affairs when the President of the United States traipses off to Copenhagen, Denmark to tout the city of Chicago as the potential host of the 2016 Olympic Games.

It’s an even more sad FACT that the President of the United States went to do this deed on behalf of the Chicago machine in one plane, while his wife went to Copenhagen to tout Chicago as well, on a different plane. A terrible waste of TAX PAYER dollars, in a failed effort.

To add even more sadness to this story, the Obama’s rolled out the BIG GUN for this trip, Oprah Winfrey. I am guessing the Dutch were as impressed with her as they were the Obama’s.

Now, I give you PROOF that Barack Hussein Obama has finally done what many have long known he was going to do, he has become the butt of the most truthful assessment of his presidency that could ever be done, he has been called a socialist loser, a do nothing, no accomplishments POTUS by the most left wing, libber platform on television.

Last night, Fred Armisen of Saturday Night Live, took Obama to the woodshed.

Armisen enumerates everything that Obama and Company have NOT done. He points out ALL of the EPIC FAILURE that IS the Obama administration. Armisen conveys more truth regarding the poser in the White House than ANY political blog has done to date!

Armisen is NOT the best Obama impersonator I have ever seen, the voice just doesn’t quite fit, but the intent, the delivery and the truth of the matter more than makes up for any imperfections in Armisen’s work.

I also know that many of you don’t watch Saturday Night Live because of their political take. I am not one of those people. I use many sources in an effort to post a good blog, SNL is one of those sources.

To be totally honest with you, I was shocked that SNL allowed this particular piece to air. They have lampooned Obama on the rare occasion, but this is, to the best of my knowledge, the first time they have truly blasted him for being the do nothing he is!

There is a brief commercial before the SNL skit actually opens, bear with it, you will NOT be disappointed!
