Silkroad: Interesting game

Today was Sunday I have no important things to do so I have more time to play my favorite Silkroad Online game. I have played this game for half a year. I played by myself. I had no friends in the game. There once some player wanted to add me for their friends. But I refused their invite because that I could believe them in virtual world. I thought that they were all gaining my silkroad gold. The entire world is full of cheating.   I had to be careful. I took tasks as usual, but I did not know I was in danger. When I found that I was in danger, I have no time to save by myself, at the moment, a strange player came to my side to help me. I was very grateful of his helping and want to give him some sro gold. But he did not accept, he said that help player is his lift a finger and was not care about the gold. I was surprised that he did not accept the important silkroad online gold. He did not want gold so I could not say anything to him.   We separate respective and go to along the contrary directions. I found that there were many players were playing together. They were all happy and laughing together. Suddenly, I had a little envy their living of playing. And I wanted to have a good friend to accompany me to kill monsters together and create our collective house in virtual world with cheap silkroad gold. I saw a player was fighting with a monster. I want to help him. I came to his side quickly and helped him to kill monster. After killing the big monster, he thanked for me. I smiled to him no thanks. I asked him that what about we became good friends and as so we can kill the big monster easily. He smiled to me OK. I was very happy that have a good friend is a beatific thing. First we used our silk road gold to set up our house that if we were tried we can go to our house to have a rest. I found that my original idea was not right and extreme. In face, in the world, there are also good people. These need your humor heart to find. I am very happy that I can have such a good friend. He always helps me without any remuneration. And my personal road is end forever.     

Is the universe a graveyard? This theory suggests humanity may be alone.

Ever since we've had the technology, we've looked to the stars in search of alien life. It's assumed that we're looking because we want to find other life in the universe, but what if we're looking to make sure there isn't any?

According to the Great Filter theory, Earth might be one of the only planets with intelligent life. And that's a good thing (NASA, ESA, and the Hubble Heritage Team [STScI/AURA]).
Surprising Science

Here's an equation, and a rather distressing one at that: N = R* × fP × ne × f1 × fi × fc × L. It's the Drake equation, and it describes the number of alien civilizations in our galaxy with whom we might be able to communicate. Its terms correspond to values such as the fraction of stars with planets, the fraction of planets on which life could emerge, the fraction of planets that can support intelligent life, and so on. Using conservative estimates, the minimum result of this equation is 20. There ought to be 20 intelligent alien civilizations in the Milky Way that we can contact and who can contact us. But there aren't any.
