Paper for the weekend

Here is a paper I would like to have time to read. The abstract is great.

Ball, J. A. (1973). The zoo hypothesis. Icarus. Volume 19, Issue 3, Pages 347–349.

Extraterrestrial intelligent life may be almost ubiquitous. The apparent failure of such life to interact with us may be understood in terms of the hypothesis that they have set us aside as part of a wilderness area or zoo.

The is just one of the 11 Weirdest Solutions to the Fermi Paradox (ht @phgfsouza). There can't be a better solution than #4 !
