Secret Messages from Outer Space

Actually they are from the ionosphere. Well, they bounce off the ionosphere. Don't believe me? listen for yourself.

It's not really our Alien Overlords sending encrypted messages. It's just plain old spooks. It's been going on for over 30 years and I had never really heard about it. The link above does a decent job of explaining it. On the other hand, I spotted this mystery on cheesebikini:

% telnet time.nist.gov 78
Connected to time.nist.gov.
Escape character is '^]'.

P: P: My name is Patsy: and my husband's name is Paul:
We come from Pittsburgh: and we sell Peaches::
$ 0 875 3000 8 1 0 0
Connection closed by foreign host.

It doesn't work now, so I guess we'll never know...
