Then there's two things to love about that avatar:
1. Old comics
2. Cats (I love cats, and that one looks really lovable)

If we are looking,

For planets outside the solar system that could have life. Then wouldn't life on other worlds do the same. Some should be billions of years older than us that have been looking far longer than us.

We hope to get contact with other life, however other life hasn't contacted us.

Do we assume that there is no one to contact?

Regards
M. Gregg

Odds are that other life exists.
Odds are that it is too far away to make contact.

Needle in a haystack?

Atrocious Rick, I feel very sympathetic for you and especially for your son who has still to go through a lot more.

The tragedy of negligence insurance claims is that the company will not often settle without ensuring that you as claimant have run up considerable legal costs. Their wager is that it is more likely that you will stop the claim at some point below the obvious minimum court award. I have had this recently where I sued a lawyer for a sum which was little more than the direct ascertained and paid costs I had had to pay as a result of his direct, open and shut negligence.

It took three years, involved a further 30,000 legal fees and expert witness fees, when they had no chance whatsoever of winning. It cost them at least 50,000 to fight - knowing that they would lose - if it went to court. They were betting that we would withdraw....we didn't and once the court hearing was scheduled they settled. Lawyers made about 100K in total between them. I got my actual expenditure +1500compensation + costs. It - in all - took nearly three years to close the matter. An added complication is that almost 100% of professional indemnity cover in Scotland is handled by an offshoot of a massive US firm...Marsh. They do play rough.
