My experience opened my eyes to the unlikelyhood of "true" alien contact.

My dad and I were sorting through apples we had just finished picking. The sun had finally set, and we were eager to see mars, since it was at its brightest at this time. As my dad was setting our little cheepo telescope, I happened to glance upwards to see three lights ina triangle shape, rotating around a fixed point. I stared in complete fascination. I showed my dad what I saw. He looked for a minute and simply went, "Huh!". He then continued to set the telescope. I really don't think he paid any mind. He had always said that he and his brothers use to see thins all the time out on the farm. He knew damn well that ufos existed, but simply thought that people were naive to think otherwise. I continued staring upward, only to see te thing take off at a speed which (I'm assuming) human kind cannot produce at this time. I'll take this time to say that I think the whole "alien" thing is total crap. I hear about stories of little men with arms, legs, eyes, mouths,etc. It doesn't take a mathemetician to figure the odds of an otherworldy being looking anything like a person are virtually slim to none. I expect more of an ameoba type-looking thing, or whatever. I don't know, maybe somewhere in the future, humankind accidentally stumbles upon time travel. When were confronted by "little green men" we think they'er\re from another planet. This only shows how blind we are. I'm blabbing! Thanks!
