    I decided to post this after reading the thread about people who communicate with the dead.

    This guy is a relatively new friend and I like him a lot. But he made a comment the other day that there are little green Martians living in his attic. I've heard of people with this opinion but never actually met any of them until now.

    So now I'm not sure I want to be friends with this guy, even though I like everything else about him. What would you do?

    --- Later edit ---

    As usual my sarcasm fell flat. Compare the above with the following post.

    Take it as a big warning sign, and get ready to dump him.

    (A) Check his attic.

    (B) If they're there, take a photo and post it at RJ ("Dating & Relationships" would be appropriate). If they're not there, ask your friend what makes him think they're there. You'll be able to judge how to proceed from the nature of his answer.

    Lol, I wouldn't know how to take this. Was it a joke? I can guarantee you there are not Martians in his attic. Besides you wouldn't want a visitor from another planet the way colonization usually works out. If he is really seeing them, perhaps he needs to pay a visit to the local psych ward.

    I thought Martians were grey and it's the Jupiterians that are blue.

    I also have a friend with some strange beliefs. Not this one, but equally ridiculous.

    I listen sympathetically without agreeing. I limit my skepticism to gentle questions, since a direct challenge does no good.

    I think there is mental illness involved and it helps for at least one person to listen. My friend is isolated.

    I maintain the friendship to a limited extent because apart from this aspect it does have value.

    People from Venice? Hmm.

    Remember when they called the people from Vega Vegans? Can't do that any more.

    I've just got a couple of Red Lectroids under the barn, but they're mostly harmless.


    Seriously, some of the phone conversations I have with my customers drive me to want a bottle of scotch in the desk drawer. It's a good thing that I detest scotch.

    The voices in my head said yes there are Martians in his attic. You should be grateful for a friend who shares such personal secrets. He trusts you. Be a good friend.

    If they have cloaking devices then maybe he's right, and you'll never know.

    Lumpy, I would suggest that you show him how to put an unopened bottle of Mexican Coca Cola--the one made with real sugar--up in the attic. If you check it after two weeks and it is not opened and empty with a straw left in it the Martians have gone. Best detection system I know of. Works every time.

    Probably a raccoon or a opossum got up in his attic and he's hearing footsteps from them.

    Have sex with him in the attic, after you've spent a full night there with him. Let us know how it goes. They are OUT there...
