And Then It Was Norway….

If you take a moment to look up on a clear night and try to grasp the enormity of it all, if you look around you and see how insignificant this earth of ours is, if you think how small is the time allotted to each of us to be here, why the hell do we have to spend that heart beat of time blowing each other up?

Remember Australia? 'Course you do, it's still there. Remember the UK used to ship their naughty people off there? People still have the occasional chat regarding finding a deserted island and doing similar today. Ship off all the ne'er-do-wells an let 'em get on with it. From scratch.

Now then, look up again.

Are we alone in the vastness of space? Of course not. Let's assume that out there amongst all those probable life forms, is a bunch of boys way ahead of us. More advanced than us? Not too hard to imagine really.

Let's assume, that back in their day, they had similar problems with their own hooks, crooks, comic singers. What's to say they didn't try the island thing? What's to say that, as they advanced, and getting fed up with bad guys getting off the island, or being given early release just to go and be naughty again, they didn't find somewhere a tad more remote and start shipping 'em off to another planet?

What's to say they didn't take advantage of the occasion to include whole whizz of their criminally insane fellows the local trick cyclists couldn't help, get 'em all to their deserted planet and just say, 'There you go. Your new home, day one. It's all yours. You're on your own. One bit of advice, put 'fire' and 'wheel' near the top of your 'Stuff To Do' list. Knock you selves out. Buby.'

Guess what? Here we are. As expected, knocking ourselves, and each other, out.

Unlikely? Probably, but it sure would answer a million irritating questions about us.

Quotes; Ellen DeGeneres.

"The only thing that scares me more than space aliens is the idea that there aren't any space aliens. We can't be the best that creation has to offer. I pray we're not all there is. If so, we're in big trouble."

Jay Leno.

"How would it be if we discovered that aliens only stopped by earth to let their kids take a leak?"
