In which Hank sings a song about the apparent lack of intelligence in our area of the galaxy and how odd that is and why it might be this way.

Good morning John, I have good news for people who like me singing songs.

Song Wednesdays are returning! From now until the end of 2010 I will be doing a new song every single Wednesday. I'm doing this because I have songs stuck in my head and its hard to get them out unless I am very motivated to do so.

And so, I am motivating myself through Nerdfighteria. I need you to motivate me. This song is a companion song to a video I made a little bit a while ago.

A little bit a while ago... doesn't make any sense. I do hope you enjoy this. In 1950 in Los Alamos a scientist was talking with his friends, And the conversation had them all fully engrossed about this universe that almost has no end.

And as they were all about to return to their study Enrico suddenly shouted, "Where is everybody?!" And he sat down and did a few simple calculations that indicated we should have been visited thousands of times at least based on his estimations And that's the Fermi Paradox If they're out there why don't we hear 'em talk the galaxy just keeps on spinnin' with four hundred billion stars in it and I just can't believe that we could be unique when there's so much space in this galaxy Oh I want Pandora's Box to be open but instead we're stuck in Fermi's Paradox There are dozens of ways this paradox might be resolved And you probably can think of some yourself Maybe advanced technology rarely evolves Or maybe God sent them all to Hell Or maybe that technology leads to its own destruction Or maybe species lose interest in reproduction Or maybe they're just afraid of what we'll do when we find out so they're hiding until we grow a bit And don't have the same tendency to frequently freak out! Oh that's the Fermi Paradox If they're out there why don't they talk the galaxy just keeps on spinnin' with four hundred billion stars in it and I just can't believe that we could be unique when there's so much space in this galaxy Oh I want Pandora's Box to be open but instead we're stuck in Fermi's Paradox Oh the question of whether there is more life out there As far as I'm concerned is moot. But it appears that the aliens do not use Foursquare and no I'm not trying to be cute Because the way that we listen is defined by our ears and the time that we've been listening, just a couple dozen years We'll be lucky if we see them if we notice them at all Our cosmic phone could be ringing off the hook right now And we're just not answering the call.

Oh that's the Fermi Paradox If they're out there why don't they talk the galaxy just keeps on spinnin' with four hundred billion stars in it and I just can't believe that we could be unique when there's so much space in this galaxy Oh I want Pandora's Box to be open but instead we're stuck in Fermi's Paradox Oh yeah, we're stuck in Fermi's Paradox Oh no! we're stuck in Fermi's Paradox Oh yeah, we're stuck in Fermi's Paradox I'm excited about the return of song Wednesdays! I hope that you are too. If you don't like nerdy songs, there's nothing I can do for you, cause I can't stop writing them.

John, I will see you on Friday!
