13. I feel like Chunk when he found the ice cream in the Goonies.
He was walking around eating the ice cream and saying, "See, you guys? I tried to tell you but nobody would listen..."

Of course, there is life out there. I've always said that and been laughed at for it. Maybe, it looks like we've found some of it. It might not be human beings on another planet, but life is life. If some life exists out there, and we've just discovered it, then other life is bound to be out there too.

This is exciting news. :popcorn:
