Hello Sterling and list,

I find this a bit humorous and dangerous at the same time:

Gliese i581c is a planet that may be 5 times the mass of Earth. If there are intelligent inhabitants, wouldn't they be like incredibly strong on Earth? A race of Hulks come to mind. Sending them 500 voices of little children sounds like inviting a lot of trouble. I don't think it would be a bad thing if they don't pay a visit.:-)

OK, I just want to to say "Hello" to everyone on this list. I'm a newbie and I've already met some of you thru meteorite sales. Since starting this hobby, I've been scouring roadways for any fallen meteorites. So far the only thing that looked like meteorites I've found is road tar. Carl
