11. We already know that they only visit trailer parks, so landing on the East Lawn is out

Your assumption that they would come in person is also unfounded. I would assume an "unmanned" craft would be more efficient, even if some type of trained biologic was used for the grunt work that we use robots for.

I'm not getting my hopes up because of that 20 year prediction. We hear this kind of crap all the time.

I do believe that life outside our solar system is a given, even intelligent life is so highly probable as to be considered a given. I just don't think interstellar travel is ever going to be practical for any species.

Have you read the "Rama" series?

I'm not a big Clarke fan but I think he did those 4 pretty well. The first one is as reasonable an encounter as I can imagine (that is still fun to read).
