Dearest Zackilicious One,"Like flies to wanton boys are we to the gods, they kill us for their sport." -King Lear
Why do people see UFOs and ghosts? Is this how god mocks and confuses us?
-Unnaturnally Fond Oddball
Dear long name,
Having never met an alien or a ghost, nor ever once getting to talk to god, I feel that I am the perfect person to answer such a question. Here it goes: I believe that the answer to this can be found if one analyzes the kind of people who regularly see an alien or a ghost, and I mean regularly, like weekly, most of these people have a common characteristic... they are nuts. So is this god trying to mock us? No, not us, just the crazies of the world.
