Stephen Hawking has suggested that while its highly likely aliens exist we should be doing all we can to avoid them.

Many beliefs about alien contact have portrayed extraterrestrial visitors as the pinnacle of evolution and concerned with the wellbeing of our planet however its quite possible that if an alien race came upon us they would be more like those from the movie Independence Day than those from ET.

"The aliens are out there and Earth had better watch out, at least according to British theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking in a published report."

Farrah and a gently rocking six pack of cold cans in the man traps, in the women traps they hide their hybrid babies knowing most women will look for a crying baby, and most men will do anyhthing for a Farrah Fawcett. I think the women get ripped off.

That reminds me of the movie, Mars Attacks in a way, just a tad bit corny.
