Proof of alien life?

I can’t believe that all of you are missing the whole point of this fantastic image! But then, I am an expert UFOlogist and the rest of you are not. This is obviously the work of at least a Type II civilization that is capable of harnessing the energy of multiple stars. The diagram at the top is clearly a schematic showing a gigantic black hole (on the right) sucking a stream of energetic matter and photons from a triple star system on the left. The distortion of spacetime caused by the tremendous gravitational force of the black hole has bent the stream of matter into the rainbow-shaped form meant to represent an accretion disk, and the multiple colours are meant to represent the intense broad-spectrum radio emissions due to the highly energetic particles streaming through it. The strange device on the left is obviously the energy generator itself, seen to be connected into the matter stream, and probably capable of producing the energy of a thousand suns.

The rest of this extraordinary image, below the accretion disk and energy generator, is probably a schematic intended to show how the energy system works. Sadly, this civilization is millions of years more technologically advanced than we are, and it is doubtful that we’ll ever understand what they’re trying to tell us. We can only hope, should they visit us again, that they are kind and benevolent beings who will wield their coloured chalk in peace. I am trying not to think about that strange image on the lower left, which looks disturbingly like a planet exploding. I would suggest that if we come across any strange-looking creatures with an unusual number of limbs and antennae coming out of their foreheads, we should be extra nice to them, just in case. If they express a wish to take you to their saucer and examine you, just go along with it. You’re probably overdue for a colonoscopy anyway.

I thought parody threads were supposed to have a link to the parodee.

Yeah, at least a broken link so we don’t get them over here. Or, some clue to which forum the original thread is in? It sounds lovely.

I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I can’t resist. . .

Are you channelling the former SamuelA? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

There. Now it’s a Pit thread.

Not at all, though I can see where one might get that impression. But note where I say that “… this civilization is millions of years more technologically advanced than we are, and it is doubtful that we’ll ever understand what they’re trying to tell us.” SamuelA, being himself millions of years more advanced than us due to his immense throbbing brain, would have no difficulty understanding what the aliens are trying to tell us, and furthermore, could have explained to us how the use of a black hole to harness the energy of an entire star is perfectly simple, and could be done today with existing technology. All we have to do is just follow his advice. :wink:

. . . which would be a perfect post in the mansplaining thread.

FWIW, I have used the definition of a “Just” at work, where 1 Just = √(-1) ∙ 3.762 x 109 nanoWatts.

Aaah, the memories.

This is so TLDR it must be true.

Can we get some important rulings please, in anticipation of important technological which (as I understand it) should be completed by mid-October, making allowances for COVID-related delays. When a banned poster’s mind is uploaded, is the new consciousness deemed contiguous with the old and therefore still banned? In a teleportation accident, if a duplicate is created, can they get a second account?

We think that, I mean, *I* think that teleporter duplicates, clones, (and parasitic aliens) and parasitic aliens should be allowed their own separate accounts.

This seems prejudicial against symbiotic aliens. Why should a parasitic alien be granted additional privileges just because it has a character flaw?

What!? Character flaw? Why you lousy, kumbaya-ing, commie-loving symbiote - how your kind ever evolved enough to crawl out of the stagnant pool you arose in, let alone travel out of your solar system, is beyond me. Everyone knows that parasitic aliens are the pinnacle of evolution. If we actually existed, we would be far superior to you hippie-like symbiotes.

That’s by far the best part. :wink:

Perhaps you can locate the rest of the derivation in your (or Google’s) records.

Add 90% more bragging about sleeping with underage Eastern European prostitutes on the cheap and you might have something.

I think it’s just wonderful that a child would know about double rainbows, and that the colors of the second rainbow are reversed - even if they did get the order of the colors wrong.

As for the rest, it looks like a child’s diary: The family is having a steak cookout (with grill marks) after a day of fishing from the washtub, and seeing Bigfoot leaving a big blue footprint.

More evidence appeared overnight. The fact that this occurred on another neighbor’s walkway is proof positive, irrefutable corroboration of the truth. Which is out there. The crude human face shown in a rictus of agony is clear evidence that this race of visitors regrets their involvement Biden’s theft of the 2020 election and 9/11. How anyone can see this evidence and still remain in denial us beyond me

I found, and bookmarked the post where I announced the SI unit to the whole world via the SDMB.

Unfortunately, the records of derivation, proofs, and analytical studies on the genesis of one “Just” of power fell into “The SamuelA Method of Science:” one heapin’ helpin’ of handwavin’ with little-to-no factual basis, but a sh*t-ton of comedy.

I’ll never aspire to that level. However, I will aspire to tearing into a Victory Bag of Cheetos, in remembrance of good times.

I dunno, I think it’s a representation of the shock-and-awe of one’s consciousness being uploaded to a collective server. The lower left representation demonstrates the partially complete process, while the top left illustrates a completed “Elevation” (hence the ‘E’).

At least I have the concept of a hypothesis straight in my head. Okay, okay, I’ll stop naming names.

You’re still one of my favorite Dopers. :+1:

You earned that Grand Prize, good Sir. You earned it.

If I see something that resembles orange fingers in the next photo, my suspicions shall be aroused. :face_with_monocle:

I thought it was self evident that the E was in reference to Enron. And/or Elvis.

Someone should send those pictures to Erich von Däniken. **
