DeepThroat02387: yeah but what I don't get is why an alien grey would use a scoped rifle in the first place -- don't they have phase plasma rifles as standard gear anymore?

Wingnut737: right but they cant take em back in time with em -- too heavy for the temporal field. Remember greys are liteweight little guys.

DeepThroat02387: but then why even fire from the book depository -- why not just use a spatial distorter to desintegrate kennedy?

Wingnut737: hang on a sec my mom wants me to take the dog out
