For his entire working life, a dedicated and hardworking astrophysicist tried in all earnest to find the existence of aliens or other beings somewhere in the universe.
Finally, after no less than 67 years of constant effort and shortly before he was due to retire, late one night, he received a response from a planet that was 30 billion light years away from Earth.
The following morning, he excitedly arranged for a group of fellow astrophysicists to join him in a conference call with the alien race who had contaced him.
“What is your planet like?”, asked the extraterrestrial from the other side of the universe.
“Well”, the astrophysicist replied, “our planet is 12,756 Kilometers in diameter, is 93,000,000 miles from the nearest star, our sun, has an average temperature of 72 degrees Fahrenheit. Us humans breathe oxygen, we live about 75 of our Earth years and have both men and women”.
“Do you get along with the women on your planet?” the extraterrestrial asked slowly.
Rather puzzled by the question, but not wanting to insult the female astrophysicists in the room, the astrophysicist answered “Why yes, we get along quite well with our women here”.
On hearing this, the extraterrestrial perked up and replied, “That’s good to know. Can we send you ours?”
