fermi's paradox       
                          
                                          
 on  earth  (the planet  where  i live) a 
 lot of  us have  antennas on  our houses 
 or  balconies,  we  have   built   large 
 antennas  for larger  bandwith,  we have 
     build specialized antennaes for      
   specific wavelengths (and sent them    
 into orbit),  we've built large as  fuck 
              antenna arrays              
 we've  virtually built an antenna with a 
         dish as large as earth.          
                                          
 we've learned about  our position in the 
      solar system, our solar systems     
 placement   in  the   galaxy,   and  our 
 galaxys placement in  the local cluster, 
 and  our  local clusters place  in the 
          grand scheme of things          
                                          
 and  we're  moving  around  the  sun  at 
 velocity and the suns moving around  the 
 center  of  the galaxy at  velocity  and 
 the galaxy  is  moving toward  andromeda 
   and we're both moving anticlockwise    
 around the galaxy. and we as  a  species 
 have learned to take all that in account 
                                          
 and despite all  this,  despite all  our 
    (cliche) beaming of fucking stellar   
 radio  programmes out in  fucking  space 
 at  the speed  of light  (light  is  our 
 medium! goodspeed you, black emperor!),  
      despite ghosts helping and the      
     collective consciousness lowpass     
    filtering, despite our very obvious   
 beaming  of  all  our  secrets  in every 
          direction known to us,          
                                          
 no       one       has       answered

              so why is that?             
                                          
 most opponents  to intelligent  life  in 
 the universe say  it's  because you need 
 a class  one-or-the-other star  and  the 
 planet  needs  to  be  at  a  see-and-so 
 distance  away from the star (like there 
           has to be a planet!)           
                                          
 but  really   isn't  that  keeping   the 
      definition of life really lax?      
                                          
 i think everyone agrees that  we have no 
 idea what we're  doing (and it  probably 
                  shows)

 i'm  gonna go smoke  my third  cigarette 
 this year and  try to snatch some  beers 
        from the local beer thing
