Herez a sampl story http://www.nooalf.com/4MUNKEZoLT.html

I can read it OK, but Ive red entire books upside down and chapterz in the mirror right side up & upside down, plus am fluent in Nooalf. My first real test case, a doctor, wuz able to read it fairly eazily - not much slower in the mirror imaje sentensez, so I know it can be dun.

Speeking uv brain teazerz - Now I'm not sure about 'gropes' being frum Star Trek.

I thot it wuz the episode in wich all the adults on a planet had died and the remaining kidz called adults 'gropes', short for 'grown ups'. Cant remember the name uv the sode.

Google only got me storyz about breasts being groped by Star Trek actorz and riterz. I know therez sum Trekkiez here.

I didnt know it wuz another alternate Earth episode. MAN, they beat that idea to deth!

I dont hav anything agenst alternate universe storyz that happen to take place on Earth, kuz it makes sense, but in ST its just Kirk & frenz flying around this galaxy, so stumbling across Earth repeats so often iz rediculous.

I'd think it's much less effort (and cost) if the "Aliens" are humans. ;)

Yep. Thats the main reazon for 99% uv all sifi TV & moviez.

Are you a real Trekkie? I like the show but havent watched it since the 80z, so hav forgotten a bunch uv stuff.

I vagely recall Spock saying sumthing about why there are so many human or similar speciez in the galaxy. Did that happen? Did they offer up an explanation? (an excuse, really)

No, not a "real Trekkie". And what I remember best is that the new guy never makes it back to the ship. :-P

Google brought up this, maybe it touches on what you asked?

From Return to Tomorrow
Sargon repeatedly refers to the landing party as his children. When Kirk asks why Sargon refers to them as "my children", Sargon says it is probable that human beings actually are descendants of his people. Six thousand centuries ago, they explored and colonized the galaxy just as Earth people do now; he speculates that Adam and Eve were two of their travellers. Dr. Mulhall objects that life on Earth evolved independently, but Spock says the colonist idea would explain certain enigmas in Vulcan pre-history.

Whut?

I think not really. It's a "leftover" and with your last post from October, 2014.

This new post still said "Brainteasers" and it's in "Brainteasers"?

What are you asking about again? Are you looking for something to convert documents for you, like this: http://traevoli.com/boust/select_file.php

Simmon sez hiz converter iz 'abandonware' now.

Only works with ascii anyway. I tried it with a document in wutever the Linux Mint text format iz and it made gobbledygoop.

Interesting site anyway.
