I got inspired when I saw a need for the world to have the Powernaut 
theme song.

My one concern with jumping from 2013 to 1964, was with confusing people 
with all those comics about Powernaut and Paula Power.  Hopefully the 
transition between eras was clear.

Thanks to the miracle of Fractal Time, S.O.S. got your message in 2005! 
Here's his response...

"Based upon my 1964 knowledge of Queezl the Saucer Alien and Simon the 
Sea Monkey, I had to conclude that alien lifeforms are able to adapt to 
Earth conditions without acting as contaminants.  But further 
conclusions about their health had to wait until later years, when more 
members of the various alien species interacted with humanity.  In other 
words...  The two aliens I knew, *seemed* healthy enough."
