Now No One Can Save Us From Aliens

Fairfield, Connecticut resident Dane Eisenman's one man attempt to save the world from an alien invasion has been thwarted by the local constabulary. It seems that he responded to a classified ad for a .30-06 rifle about a month ago and told the seller that he intended to use it to fend off an alien invasion that occurs once every 36,000 years.

According to an article in the Hartford Courant:

The seller was unsure if Eisenman was referring to space aliens or illegal aliens, [police sergeant] Perez added. Sgt. Perez said Eisenman told the seller of the rifle every 36,000 years, aliens who live under the sun come to Earth to kill humans, and he needed to be prepared because "They're going to be coming soon."

After the sale of the rifle, the man reported Eisenman to police. Sgt. Perez said Eisenman, who is a convicted felon, is legally prohibited from buying or owning a hand gun or rifle.

Eisenman turned himself into police thursday morning and was charged with charge of criminal possession of a firearm. He will be arraigned in Bridgeport Superior Court on July 9.

Just as a completely unrelated point of interest that no one but me will care about, The Hartford Courant is NOT named after a fruity blackberry with seeds that get stuck in your dental work (that's a currant), but was founded in 1764, and is the oldest continuously published newspaper in the United States. Courant is a Dutch word for newspaper.

Wow, I wonder what people used to fend off the aliens 36,000 year ago which would have been the last time they were here? I'm pretty sure there were no .30-06 rifles back then. ;-)

Poor fellow looks like he has been stung -- living in the woods eating not locusts and honey but live bees and honey?
