Just my opinion, but most people with such protections under
their laws consider this to be either a local thing, or just do
not consider them.  Americans consider it to be universal.  So
sue us.

(Ummm, sniffle, snort, Hic, yawn) Sorry, I was just nipping, I
mean napping.

Uh, Magnums eh?  Yup, we sell Magnums, but only to adults over
32 years of age with specially marked livers. And it only comes
in Gripple Dripple.

Uh, what was we talkin' aboot?  Oh, I remember now.

Aliens.  As I argued with Dennis, uh, I forgot his last name. Oh
yah, Menace!   No, Stacey!  That's it, Stacey.  Anyway, there
appears to no rule.  Why some of us remember and some of us do
not remember as much or perhaps at all is part of the conundrum.

That things "tend to be going this way or that" is a waste of
Dennis' boundless energy... at least in my view.  And one good
reason fro this is that people, many people, have experiences
which they never report, at least not as being either anomalous
or related to UFO's or abduction.

In addition, that there appears to be a change in the manner in
which most of these events occur (i.e., with or without sighting
a UFO, etc.) what the hell difference does this make in light of
the _faster_ changing level of technology, communications and
reporting of these events faster than spit in a vacuum.  What's
changed more is the technology. Therefore, it becomes difficult
to draw conculsions as to the methods used by "them," assuming
there are any "them."

Kin I go back to sleep now, Dave?
