Arrrgghhhh, NO THIS NOT THE VIDEO. Mashable did the old switcharoo on this vid. Shame on you Mashable! If you find the video I originally referenced, please let me know… 🙂
So apparently nobody believed my college paper back in 1986 when I made the simple calculation of billions of stars must mean lots of possibilities for the existence of life on other planets. Oh sure, along comes a reputable scientist and that smart guy, Carl Sagan, and pretty soon we have a formula and a brainiac telling us approximately how many planets there are out there.
You’re welcome smart guys for my laying the ground work… not sure how you got a hold of that paper since it’s already hanging on my wall next to my certification of owning a sweet desert valley on Mars from that salesman who foolishly sold it for a couple hundred bucks.
Anyway, if you’re wondering, I guess there’s a handful of planets that are probably already keeping tabs on us. 🙂
