I heard they found a signal years ago, but it disappeared before it was confirmed by another site. Any info on this or any other weird stuff?

What are you looking at? Haven't you ever seen a pink shirt before?

Do you mean, perhaps, the "Wow!" signal?

How about this for "other weird stuff"?

Should be interesting to see how that one pans out....

"We are all connected; to each other biologically, to the earth chemically, to the rest of the universe atomically."

"So you're made of detritus [from exploded stars]. Get over it. Or better yet, celebrate it. After all, what nobler thought can one cherish than that the universe lives within us all?"
