  • The black mailbox just stood there and did nothing. Wouldn't answer any of our questions. Just acted as if it was a mailbox. Which, of course, we all know is nonsense. But that night while camping nearby strange orange lights lit up the sky over Area 51. Awesome light show. Black mailbox had no comment next morning. He's somewhat of a snob, I fear.
  • Me and my mates been talking about doing this trip for years. Finally went and spent the night star gazing and shooting off fireworks with desert weirdos. The next morning got hasseled by dudes in camo.
  • The only place i know where you can send a letter to an alien. No mail pick up times posted, but you could always just wait around and see if you have a close encounter.
