Churchill and the Aliens…

Now this is kinda cool, especially if you’re a bit of a history buff as many nerds like myself are.  The history and science fiction nexus gets thick at times over World War II, what with the insane speculation that Nazi Germany was scientifically advanced due to alien “assistance.”  So it really floats my boat to hear that a lost essay has been discovered by none less than Winston Churchill in which he supports the existence of alien life…

…I swear that I am not making this up!  The unpublished essay from 1939 by Churchill was discovered in of all places a Missouri museum to which the paper had been donated and then forgotten.  Now Winnie was a remarkable guy; a politician, statesman, writer, and even a friend of the sciences who while prime minister of England appointed a science adviser, and regularly met with scientists.  Radar was developed during his watch, and may have kept England afloat when the Nazis came calling.  Anyways, Churchill in this essay ponders the timeless question of alien life, and concludes that we are not alone

…remarkably, Churchill’s reasoning even from over seventy years ago mirrors scientific thought even today, proving that the cigar-smoker was both broad-minded and a man ahead of his time.  Churchill and Carl Sagan probably would have liked each other.  The best politicians are scientifically friendly; if only such could be said of Mr. Trump…

    And in the late Prime Minister’s honor, all UFO’s have been cigar-shaped, ever since.

    “Never—have so many—been so relentlessly subjected—to so endless a barrage—of jokes—so badly told.”

    P.S.— speaking of dog shows: did you know the Russians have been experimentally breeding foxes as pets for the last fifty years or so?

      Yes, I remember reading an article about that in National Geographic. Foxes only pretend to be domesticated and compliant, however, to lull humans into a false sense of complacency, while we quietly weave our nefarious schemes for total global domination…

    And the Best Picture Oscar goes to:
