They have been around for some time now, but where did the idea of little green
men come from, or the big eyed hairless Ivan type, how many different alien forms are there ?

It's just a distoration of the human shape produced from nightmares and dreams.

The standard for the appearance of "greys" comes from the guy who wrote communion I believe. Or at least the artist who did his cover art.

Although the first definitive description of the classic gray alien comes from Betty and Barney Hill, ca. 1961, there were similar references in movies, as well as hints in earlier, historical accounts; depending of course on how you wish to interpret things.

Doesnt E=MC2 limit where aliens can come from, as long as we accept that this law cannot be broken?

You wouldn't believe it if we told you. Let's just say that it's the lowest level to which Yank TV could sink, compared to which anything else on the air is a Mensa meeting.

I herd of that I saw a video on the Internet once and it said the designs came form an artisist/pschlologist who talked people how said they where abducted by aliens(which are probally just common sleeping disorder where you open your eyes during REM sleep) and that what they said look like and everone staterd copieing around him and that's where it comes from.

Aliens are harmless, but don't ask them for a ride home.

Obiviously you havn't herd what the abductee's said what happened when they got abducted.You don't want to know I didn't go to sleep on the night I found out(I know people don't really get abducted by aliens but it was disturbing)
