According to X-Files (which is obviously a reputable source for paranormal/scientific information), secret experiments were conducted on pregnant women in 1973, at Roswell, New Mexico.
These women were infected with an alien virus, without their knowledge. The purpose of the experiment was to create human/alien hybrids.
My mom was pregnant with me in 1973, and she lived in El Paso, Texas. However, she did go to Roswell to watch football games. She could have been infected with the alien virus at that time.
The obvious conclusion: I am a human/alien hybrid. That explains why I am so awesome.
