Craigslist CEO Jim Buckmaster won an auction on eBay for the first private communication to be transmitted into deep space. As a result, on March 5th, they transmitted 138,000 classified ads into outer space.

If you've ever browsed Craigslist, it's a frightening thought that this San Francisco-based classified ad company might have broadcast a thousand messages about circumcision, used mattresses, and bad dating experiences into space. It's bad enough that aliens might intercept errant tv transmissions of "Friends" or "CNN Crossfire", but Craigslist? Am I the only one who now believes Earth's invasion by Jerry Springer-esque aliens is inevitable?
