    How so? ET = extraterrestrial = space "alien" -- it's synonymous. The movie character was in 1982, 33 years ago; ETs have been ETs before and since. (Though the notion of Dr. Hawking wheeling around in search of the little fellow while throwing large £££ bills at the problem does have amusement value!)

    Well damn, I guess I'm just old then. I'm of the generation that ET immediately conjures up "ET go home," memories! :giggle:
