I know I’m taking a risk in writing this, but…

Way back in February I wrote a post called ‘Messages From Outer Space’. No, I still haven’t worked out how to do links, but I’m sure if you want to you can find your own way there. After I’d written it, my site views dropped down to zero for the first time ever, then slowly recovered, and I still haven’t had a ‘zero day’ since (klopf auf holz). Obviously, I’d uncovered an alien invasion and was being suppressed. Either that or people started to think I was very insane, instead of just slightly insane, and were ‘virtually’ crossing the street to avoid me…

Anyway, I’m going to risk the wrath of the aliens once more, as I spotted something a few days ago on my walk to work that I can only explain as a stepping up of the planned invasion of earth.

On the opposite side of the train station to the building that is transmitting messages into space is a really old railway building that’s in a state of disrepair. I say really old, I’d guess it’s probably about 100 years old. It’s all boarded up and overgrown and has signs on it saying ‘Unsafe Structure – DO NOT ENTER’, and flyers for local events pasted all over it, you know the kind of thing. It’s got the ambience of a building that councillors and upstanding citizens consider to be an eyesore, and adventurous teenagers consider to be “spooky to spend a night in”.

So I walk past it every day, in my usual daydreamy state, and don’t take a great deal of notice of it, unless there are some new flyers stuck on the boarded up windows that catch my eye. Until that is, earlier this week. For some reason, I ended up staring aimlessly at the rooftops of this building and saw the strangest looking thing sticking out of the top.

See!? Definite proof of alien activity…

It’s certainly not a TV aerial or radio antenna. If it’s meant to be a lightning conductor, it’s pretty rubbish, even I know that. So what is it?

Well, I guess the worst case scenario is that it’s an alien invasion ship, and rather than flying across space to invade, they’re going to slowly materialise their craft inside our atmosphere and catch us by surprise. My own theory is that it’s just a part of the message transmission system, some sort of beacon that allows them to focus their sensors in the right direction to read the messages from the other building. Let’s hope so.

Sadly, I’ve not been able to keep track of the messages being sent, as during the summer, it’s not dark when I come home from work. That’s the main difference between summer and winter… In the summer you have more hours of the day when you can see how crappy the weather is…

Anyhoo, that’s about it. If my site hits hit zero again, I’m going to start to get mighty paranoid, especially as there’s another (whisper it) Group Hug on the horizon. If some roofing specialist sees this and wants to make me feel stupid by explaining exactly what it is, I’ll probably be quite relieved. And if they do invade, you know I’m going to be first in the queue to defect 😉

Coming soon… Possibly some swearing, probably some dangerous experiments with drugs, and definitely some ‘Appearances’… Unless the dangerous experiments go wrong!

Live long and chill out… ses x
