Of course, if we were under attack by orbital bombardment by some space aliens then that's exactly what they would say!

There's always an Arquillian Battle Cruiser, or a Corillian Death Ray, or an intergalactic plague that is about to wipe out all life on this miserable little planet, and the only way these people can get on with their happy lives is that they Do... Not... Know about it!

I saw a big fireball in the late 80's when I was at my Uncles cabin in the PA mountains - just happened to be looking up at the sky looking at the stars and this huge fireball streaked across the sky - could even see the pieces/flames behind it - pretty amazing! Looked the next day in the papers to see if anyone else saw it (or if it was plane or something) and nothing.

Needless to say - I got a kink in my neck as I kept staring at the sky the rest of the night!

Until I saw the vid, I was just gonna say, "No thanks, I prefer hot water."

Can't help but wonder if I'd have been looking west at the right time, if I'd have seen ANYthing from IN....

Oh well.
