Bebo users release interstellar spamgasm at Gliese 581

Alien f*ck-off pill expected in 2049

7 Elements of Radically Simple OS Migration

A large amount of information compiled by Bebo users has now been beamed into space, aimed at a planet thought particularly likely to harbour intelligent alien life.

The interstellar Bebo dump, known as AMFE (A Message From Earth), contains all kinds of information from the Web 2.0 teenybopper nerd portal. There are pictures of cats, boy crooners and other prominent figures in the bebo userbase lifestyle. There are also short text messages from the Bebo community. Here's a selection:

Our bodies are made of bones ... We have senses. Smell, Taste, Sight and Touch. Without any of these things, we wouldn't live.

I love Television. We watch animated cartoons and real-life drama on it. I could sit and watch Television all day.

Hi im nicole. my ambitions for when i am older is to perform, i love anything to do with drama and someday i would love to appear on the west end stage, in a hit show.i also wouldnt mind doing a few television programs whether it is as a extra or a main part i dont mind i would love to appear on doctor who as i love it. anyway laters.Nicole x

All this (and much, much more) is now on its way to the star system Gliese 581, beamed out from a Ukrainian radar telescope by controversial Russian "active SETI" proponent Alexander Zaitsev.

The recently-detected planet Gliese 581c is thought particularly likely to harbour extraterrestrials able to understand the messages, being situated at such a distance from its dim, red sun that liquid water might be able to exist on its surface. Perhaps in the form of ponds.

The user-generated data spurt should reach Gliese 581 in March of 2029. Fortunately - provided the locals haven't mastered faster-than-light technology - no response can arrive until 2049. ®
