Space aliens. Lots of science fiction movies feature them and they always have something to tell us about how to handle inter-species relationships. From first contact to Merrill swinging, the movies have taught me a lot about dealing with aliens and how to survive in my surroundings should I encounter them.
- If you have a space ship with a cat on it and the cat freaks out, run. Don’t look back, just run to the escape pod and hit that big red button.
- If it glows, it’s good. If it drools, kill it with fire.
- If all of the aliens look like people with different colored skin and foam ridges glued on, you’re in the Star Trek universe.
- Conversely, if aliens immediately cause you to want to punch them in the face through cute overload, you’re in the Star Wars universe.
- The more techonologically advanced an alien race is, the more likely they are to be defeated by something incredibly stupid. Like water, or a Mac.
- Also, these extremely advanced alien species will have spent most of their time destroying their own world(s) and needing to come to ours for natural resources.
- Aliens never abduct different alien races, only backwoods humans who are unlikely to have macs or drink water.
- Lots of aliens love to speak English, just with different accents so communication won’t be much of a problem. If it is, just use your Mac!
- If you do happen to be contacted by benevolant aliens seeking to better the human race in some way, no one will believe you.
- Lots of alien architecture resembles that of some ancient human civilization because obviously they came here and influenced or contracted for the ancients.
