Exactly...

Passer-by walks by someone making wild gyrations and jerking their arms and legs around.

"Hello are you ok??"

"Yes, (arm whistles past passer-by's face) I'm fine. (leg swings up and starts a pirouette) I'm just trying to see what the weather will be this week (goes back to jerking arms and legs all over the place looking like a seizure is in progress).

Alien Comet May Have Infiltrated the Solar System 208

Posted by kdawson
from the starseed-lure dept.
New Scientist has a piece about Comet Machholz 1, whose uncommon molecular composition suggests, but does not prove, that it may be an interloper from another star system. "Comet Machholz 1 isn't like other comets. David Schleicher of the Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona, measured the chemical makeup of 150 comets, and found that they all had similar levels of the chemical cyanogen (CN) except for Machholz 1, which has less than 1.5% of the normal level. Along with some other comets, it is also low on the molecules carbon-2 and carbon-3."
