For several months, I had been avoiding my once-usual morning coffee shop. It had become too overgrown with kooks. I decided this morning to give it another try. Alas, the kooks are still there, and they still want to talk to me....
As I sat drinking my coffee, a random stranger approached and asked whether I'd seen the lunar eclipse last night. I replied that I had. He replied:
What do ya think it looks like to the people, beings... whatever, are up there? Does everything just go dark? Do they know what eclipses are?
I responded: I do not believe that there are...um... beings on the moon.
Surprised, he replied: Really? You don't believe in life on other planets?
I responded: Well, first of all, let's remember that the moon is not a planet.
He interrupted to say: Wow. That's messed up, man.... messed up.
And then he walked away.
