Oh great. They're gonna tease it and it'll come back with a vengeance on its new course. :roll:

There is virtually no danger of a collision if it is the Aliens' Mother Ship.

Don't be silly, alien mothers can't drive.

Sorry, seating capacity on the asteroid has been filled. Might be some seats in coach on the next comet.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Only because they're too busy smacking down their misbehaving alien kids in the back seat. You know, the ones that buzz by Earth on their tricycles and cause all those UFO sightings?
What are the facts? Again and again and again-what are the facts? Shun wishful thinking, ignore divine revelation, forget what “the stars foretell,” avoid opinion, care not what the neighbors think, never mind the unguessable “verdict of history”--what are the facts, and to how many decimal places? You pilot always into an unknown future; facts are your single clue. Get the facts!
