The search for intelligent life

Having found intelligent life to be sadly lacking in the beloved motherland and since I am in constant need of regular mental stimulation, have decided to look for intelligent life- in outer space.

Imagine my surprise then, when I discover that I have been beaten in this novel quest. The search for extraterrestrial intelligence, or SETI to the cognoscenti is already well established.

The UN has established an Office for Outer Space Affairs which is headed by Mazlan Othman a Malaysian astrophysicist, a lady that one newspaper has apparently dubbed the "alien ambassador".

Ok, ET, here I come.

Do you read me? Over. Do you read me? Over.

You could just try another country no?! :P

I suppose so, like Siam, Persia or Zanzibar. Or maybe even Ceylon....;)

The OOSA sounds like the perfect UN Agency for me :)

Guiding Spirit - I can't think of a better place to work either :)
