No Signs Of Intelligent Life

Astronomers claim to have found a habitable planet. They claim that it possesses Earth-like temperatures, and resembles Earth in its terrain. The only problem is that it is 120 trillion miles away, has nearly twice as much gravity as earth, may or may not be either covered in ice, water, or mountains, has a much dimmer red dwarf for a sun, orbits the red dwarf every 13 days as opposed to 365, oh, and it may or may not only have light on one side, leaving the other side completely in darkness. Oh yeah, I forgot, it is also impossible to reach within a human life time, much less reach at all considering we do not have the technology available to make it there, much less back. No wonder this comes from the people who claim Mars is habitable for humans. Now don't get me wrong, I am all for researching new planets to colonize. Especially with the way we are destroying our planet, seeing as how we got nowhere else to go. I'm not trying to piss on anyone's parade or anything, but come on guys; do we really need to get this excited over something we know absolutely nothing about, other than it might be habitable, once all the aforementioned dilemmas are dealt with? Really?

You're just a sad song, with nothing to say
