Also, whether Luke and Leia are human beings depends a lot on what definition of "species" you use. Sure under Mayr's classic definition, they are members of our species, because we can probably interbreed with them (as countless fanboys have imagined). But if you use a more sophisticated Hull and Ghiselin style definition, they are not members of our species, because they belong to a very different lineage. I mean, how far back would you have to go to find a common ancestor?

i know it depends on the display but don't you see something elliptical with two horizontal darker spots right in the middle of the lower part of the window?
an alien or not i don't know but the image looks like that
and i see more dark and white spots looking like ghosts, but it was dismissed as bushes
if i were someone taking the video i would try to open the window and catch if not it, then at least what sound it will make, footsteps or something else
see, irrational ends

116: Look just above the window sill in the horizontal center of the photo. It's a pale ellipse with 2 darker "eyes."

It took me a while to find it, too, because it's been years since I've seen Close Encounters and I'm out of practice.

this site used to be funny.

We're not as gay as we used to be.

i don't know i enjoy far less the brasilian wax threads
the old threads people link sometimes, i don't know people commenting there so it seems less interesting
i thought i disliked that Standpipe guy who was like especially witty mocking me on welcome, turns out he was like the funniest guy around here, eb and JP Stormcrow's jokes i like too
good thing my antivirus refuses to show the apostropher's linked pictures so i see mcAfee red letters everytime i open it, so safe

Alas, Standpipe (a possible lady) seldom comes around any more.
