    I really appreciate you providing such a great resource.

    You're very welcome and this puts wind in my sails to continue doing this. I rarely ever get a 'thank you' and it means a lot to me. Take care friend.

    My wife and I wanted to get our two boys the Xbox. However, I'd been checking for months and the supply chain is so backed up that we were afraid that we wouldn't be able to get it by Christmas time.

    So, I did a ton of reading comparing the two consoles and decided to get the PS5 Digital Edition. My wife and I, also, decided that making our young boys wait until Christmas would be too tough on them.

    It took me quite a bit of time to get it all set up last night and the kids were able to play with it today. With our brand new Sony Bravia with Dolby Digital audio it has been an amazing experience for all of us.

    It appears that most of this has developed over the past 30 years. When I was in my twenties (I am 50 yrs. old now), I could afford to move around and go to several universities while having a significant savings account.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but all this looks like a trend of wealth disparity/inequality in the US. It's a shame and it needs to be addressed. However, I'm not sure what all the factors are and how it could be addressed.

    No. Possibly. He described them as a grey human form, with no other features, just standing in front of him in our front yard.

    Is it significant that he is your first born?

    No.

    do you actually think your first born son did see two "humanoids"?

    Possibly.

    What did they look like?

    I'll try to explain the best I can here.

    I thought that he was asleep in bed. I went out to go to the bathroom and found him curled up on a chair in the living room. He looked distraught and said he needed to talk to me. I asked him to come into the kitchen to speak.

    Long story short, he described experiencing encounters with two humanoids. One was an adult and the other a child. He was shaken up and tearing up about these.

    I reminded him of my story and added a few things that aren't written there. He started to relinquish a little after that. However, he still seemed troubled so I pressed further.

    I said, something to the effect, "this 'higher power' reached through time/space to keep me alive and you are worried about these humanoids? Nothing is more powerful than the love of this 'higher power' and the will of your parents."

    He cried tears of joy (said that he was touched), relented, and went to bed.

    Powerful parental/universe experience. I'm blown.
