Saturday is HERE again!
I’m happy to announce a new question series and the opportunity for YOU to answer new polls about interesting and mysterious mysteries.
50 Mysteries and Mysterious Questions
For the first one, since this is last minute, and because of a recent weird story about Area 51, and the fact that we’ve really messed things up here on planet earth, is about life in other parts of the universe.
This first one is rough (aren’t they all) but stay with me.
And YES there will be CATS and VAMPIRES too.
Is anybody out there? Ask Joe Elliot. I bet he knows. Hey, if I was an alien from another planet I’d come the extra light years to see Def Leppard live.
But back to the real story…
Straight from the headlines today: 640K people want to raid Area 51 to ‘see them aliens’
Apparently a Facebook group has organized this event to take place, and of course it is a fake, but it wouldn’t have surprised me if it was real. People are weird. People are stupid. Do you REALLY think the government would keep space aliens and their ships in a place everyone knows about.
Silly stuff aside, do you think we’re alone in the universe?
My last post mentioned Star Trek and Star Wars. For centuries humans have imagined traveling to the stars and finding life on other planets. It is in our DNA. I’ve even written several science fiction stories for the WPaD publications.
The idea of life on other planets inspires art. You have to love the pulp science fiction art or something is seriously wrong with you.
The thought of other life in the universe also inspires hope.
When Galileo Galilei said the Earth was not the center of the universe, but revolved around the sun there was an uproar of the highest order. In 1632 the Pope was offended by such radical views. Galileo was threatened, the safety of his beloved children was threatened and he was put under house arrest. This was tragic. Unfortunately this kind of crap is still going on.
The middle finger from Galileo’s right hand, is currently on exhibition at the Museo Galileo in Florence, Italy. No doubt that is a sly way to say “F you” to everyone who doubted him and caused him so much harm.
Galileo’s eldest daughter Virginia changed her name to Marie Celeste when she became a nun. Celeste means heavenly, or look up in the sky and gaze upon the beauty of the stars.
By the way, I will be covering the mystery of the Mary Celeste in a later post.
Here on Vampiremaman.com I’ve followed in the steps of both Galileo and Carl Sagan by covering important stories about life on other planets.
When the Voyager, with the golden disc detailing human life left our solar system it was a huge deal. Now anyone or anything can find it and know who we are, and where we are. Of course the fact that Chuck Berry is on it is a sure fire way to get folks to our planet. Roll over Beethoven and send me to the planet Earth!
One morning a few years ago I heard on the news that there is no methane on Mars.
“No farts,” said my son.
“No boys on Mars.” said my daughter.
“What no cats?” I said that, knowing it wasn’t true. There have to be cats on Mars. We have proof from The Opportunity Rover on Mars!
You can also count on the fact that there are Vampires on Mars as well.
And speaking of mysteries on Mars and Earth. Another one has just been solved.
I’d hate to think that we are alone in the universe. I find that thought extremely sad.
We’ve been to the moon. We’ve sent small probes like the Voyager outside of our solar system.
Many people claim that we’ve had visitors from other planets. Some even think that we originally came from another planet (I don’t think so. We’re so messed up and weird that I don’t think we would have come from somewhere else unless we were booted out for being assholes.)
Yes, as odd as we are, there is goodness here. There is beauty. There is Yosemite. Come visit us alien folks. I’ll smoke some ribs and put the beer on ice. Like Fox Moller, I want to believe.
So ANSWER THE POLL and leave comments below. Let’s talk about this. Help solve this mystery.
Come back next week for another Mysterious Mystery Question. Happy Caturday!

I don’t know… I’m one of those people who sometimes wonder if there’s really anyone else out there on our own planet. I mean, maybe the world is just my world. My immediate surroundings, and everything else just fades into black as soon as it’s out of my sensory range. It’s nutty (hey, I’m a squirrel!), but you can’t really prove it isn’t true…
Really… would anyone out there take the effort and take over a planet that we humans have already nearly destroyed?
