Or Just a Brilliant Disguise?

Earlier this week scientists with the SETI Institute (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) thought they'd picked up an interesting radio signal that might have been from another star. But, it turns out, the signal was actually terrestrial in origin -- possibly a Russian military satellite.

Which could be exactly what the aliens want us to think, so I'm still skeptical. In any event, the researchers mailed the data to the Search for Terrestrial Intelligence institute so they could investigate it, but the envelope came back, "Recipient Moved -- No Forwarding Address."

Allegedly, tv and radio signals from Earth penetrate into deep space. I figure if the likes of "Jersey Shore" have reached whatever planet houses intelligent life, they've probably decided we're not worth bothering with.

Yes, anyone who lives within 7 light-years of us (Shore debuted in 2009) would have decided to look elsewhere.
