One of the big stories from earlier in the week was news of the discovery of a radio signal of extraterrestrial origin that needs to be further examined. I'm not overly optimistic that this signal is evidence of an extrasolar civilization, but such a discovery would be a neat thing to see happen in my lifetime. Even with my pessimistic view, I have one word of warming to any scientists investigating the origin of this signal... don't fall in love:
Oddly enough, I seem to have only one post mentioning Split Enz, even though they have long been a favorite band of mine. A few years back, I posted a link to a documentary about New Zealand's Flying Nun Records that Another Kiwi was kind enough to refer to me. At any rate, 'Poor Boy' is a cautionary tale... Proxima Centauri B is no place to go looking for romance.
