Yes.

Right.

Stop it right here.

This email is a sham.

No one is writing anything whatsoever.

There is no original. These are not letters and words, but simply
quanta of light striking your retina, or with a reader, sound to your
ear!

Mr / Ms / Mrs / Prof / Dr R Mutt provides a 'non-de-plume' and an
address, <electroacoustics@canada.com>, which indicates their true
place of origin ... "Saturn". !! (Some people thought Uranus, but
that is below contempt!)

Earthlings having discovered the true presence of alien life beyond
the moon, have decoded their messages, and now one (?) of the
advanced guard <R Mutt> wishes to nay-say the presence of a superior
intelligence.

A good move Dr Mutt, or may I call you 'R' (as you are not one, but
many, and it would be incorrect to say "Is you here", but rather "R U
Hear Mutt?") but we've blown your cover.

Ha, caught in the nick of time, just before eight o'clock! (see link
below ... or rather, hear a sonic decoding of the 1's and 0's that
the ear may perceive as "sound").

It is clear that you have not been around ea long enough to know that
on this list, along with the definition of ea, a discussion of the
concept of "hear" (as a transitive verb) is clearly (as they say),
"from outer space".

What better way for the invasion of earth to take place than for the
'alien' in our midst to attack the personalities of those who have
found out the truth. This is a well-known method used by the White
House and fundamentalist right (or left!) to misdirect the public's
attention from the issue at hand -- the Alien Invasion of the Planet
earth.

Ah-ha! the undrinkability of water. I read about this misconception
in the fifth volume of the Hitchhikers Guide Trilogy, and have
decoded the words "Garbled, distorted, data", and, "contemplating a
glass of water", and using my magic spiral decoder (which will be
poo-poo'ed no doubt), have determined that the sum (and
cross-relation) of the letters in each phrase is .... "42".

Now we know what time it is, "eight o'clock".

eh?
