I think I want to become a UFO buff. What kind of dedication does it take to become a buff? Do I need to stop doing anything that can be considered living a "normal" life to dedicate those hours of the day toward my new hobby, er, obsession, er, calling? Do I need to do something to get on an FBI watch list? Should I stop showering?
OK, I don't really want to become a UFO buff. Maybe I just want to become a bit of a conspiracy theory buff and UFOs seem to be behind a lot of those. But being a conspiracy theory buff sounds exhausting. How but just a conspiracy theory hobbyist? That sounds harmless. But I know me. I get obsessed with my hobbies, whether it be comic-books, movies, beer or midget-fetish porn. That last one nearly did me in.
So I guess I just would prefer to skip all the research, psycho-babble and speculation about aliens and UFOs. I want to just...know. That way, if there is a massive underwater fleet of UFOs lurking under the Southern Ocean near Antarctica and if the United States has been in a state of constant warfare with the alien horde, I can be prepared when WikiLeaks reveals it all to the world.
Especially if they are causing earthquakes and tidal waves and shit. I live near the water, people. You can't be too careful.
