1. If it's television

I'd watch.
If it plans to build a transdimensional portal,
I'd go.

15. Actually it was young Richard Kiel (later Jaws in Bond films)

Both 7+ footers, they were often mistaken for each other.

17. Any chance you're related to the great English composer Thomas Arne (1710-1778)?

He was a contemporary of my avatar

18. No the families would not be related.

There is a better chance of a Norwegian Viking tale,
of an early cave man
who had a son.

Parkes radio telescope in Australia. One of my favorite low key, feel good movies is based on this observatory which was integral in receiving and broadcasting the first images of man walking on the moon. The fictional story based on truth is called "The Dish" and stars the great Aussie actor Sam Neill...Well worth a watch if you love science and a good flic too...

Humanity should be wary of seeking out contact with alien civilizations, Stephen Hawking has warned once again.

In 2010, the famed astrophysicist said that intelligent aliens may be rapacious marauders, roaming the cosmos in search of resources to plunder and planets to conquer and colonize. He reiterates that basic concern in "Stephen Hawking's Favorite Places," a new documentary streaming now on the CuriosityStream video service.

On a more local (Earthly) note:

“When the missionaries came to Africa they had the Bible and we had the land. They said 'Let us pray.' We closed our eyes. When we opened them we had the Bible and they had the land.” What is the interpretation of this quote by Desmond Tutu?

13. I doubt it's from any somewhat advanced culture near Proxima.

They would have detected our signals years ago and responded back with TV game shows of their own.
