    To the contrary, the math says I'm right.

    I always thought hummus was bean dip with a good press agent. I am reminded of a Gene Autry quote, "Ballplayers are like expensive restaurants. You love the good ones and hate the overpriced ones."

    The mashed chickpeas say I'm regular. Make of that what you wish.

    The math says that if we are not alone then they are already here. Muller and Sculley aside, I don't think they are here, so we must be alone.

    What math says that if there is life elsewhere in the vast, ever expanding universe that they must be here, with us, right now, on earth? Please show your work.

    I wont argue right here, right now, on earth. But the math supports elsewhere and concurrent


    With pleasure....it's called the Drake Equation

    N = R* • fp • ne • fl • fi • fc • L

    I'm not going to argue with the math

    there's also the rare earth equation too but i've never attempted that one. i think it's harder. i've done the drake equation a few times and i always come out to one technological civilization per galaxy. but i noticed the 2nd time i did it, i felt bias and like i was trying to fudge my answers to come out the same.

    also, the other day i heard them say the milky way hasn't had very many collisions. and actually, i suspected as much! heh
