Our friend Vivek just shared this with me via Twitter: Newest Rulings on Alternative Source Citing. Might be old news, but it’s still kinda cute. Here’s an excerpt:
Alien Mind Transmissions
When citing telepathic transmissions from alien planets/spacecraft:
- Name the aliens who sent the message (if known).
- Identify the location of planet or craft.
- Identify the location where transmission was received.
- List the date the transmission was received.
Example: “Internal combustion vehicles are wasteful and evil. You must stand in the street and curse their drivers and occupants immediately.” [The Elders of Antares 7; A Ship Orbiting Saturn; Corner of Lawrence Avenue and Broadway, Chicago, IL: July 5,1989.]
It also has Rest-Stop Restroom Graffiti, Magic 8-Balls, Tattoos, and Epithets Hollered Out Car Windows.

There was just one safe-for-work example and you chose that. How.. goody-two-shoes.
That’s me, always mindful of our younger readers!
