LOL 'Alien' is now a derogatory word :)

Guess we need to start referring to aliens as the 'A-word'

It is a how to get attention exercise..say something stupid and sure you may make head lines...I feel many of the flat Earth folk just want attention and clearly proposing a flat Earth is a sure way to get attention...

So what do we call them in new speak? Any suggestions..its raining here

Well that is the way the young woke generation are evolving the English language. Yes, it is a right pain to read. I think there is a contest to see who can be the most unique.

So one person says something and it is Gospel, very narrow minded in my opinion, but then who takes notice of me.

Do it all the time and worse on purpose..any impression is better than no impression...plus after years of being gramatically perfect its my way of rebelling.

Typical celebrity trip thinking she's more important than anyone else on the planet and people have to listen to her. Beauty of social media. Every dumbass has a public platform.

Language changes all the time. Words have new meanings, words fall out of favour, new words come in.

“We were stargazing and we tried to do this protocol where you make contact, and all of a sudden something showed up directly above us in the sky,” Lovato said.

Much to the surprise of all in attendance that something turned out to be The Moon.

She has so many videos that I was surprised....and Leon I certainly shuffle but the word has an entirely different meaning for me.

Thinking about Aliens we need give them not respect at this point as respect must be earned and for them to start that process they first need to land on the White House front lawn...but what if they do stuff that is entirely repulsive to us...say they are cannibals...or kill their old folk off..clearly she has not thought anything thru..I knew that I felt I had something in common with her.

And Neil Armstrong's name backwards is "Gnorts, Mr Alien". Coincidence? I think not!

Gnorts from me -
