I reckon it could.
if their mothership is TCP/IP compatible.
you give me laughs!
JOSH GRAHAM: CYNICAL GIVER OF LAUGHS.
I'm cynical about the worlds capabilities of defending itself from general alien attack? How the hell can you be cynical about that?
WE'RE ALL DOOOOOOOMED!!!! DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMED!
i'm just compiling all of your qualities until i have a twenty-word-long mantra that definitively sums you up.
it surprises me that youre not 16
pipped to the post.
Jeff Goldblum and David Duchovny could be persuaded to come out of retirement.
As dumb as they are in the movies.
If so, I reckon we're in with a shot.
Or they could just catch the flu and die anyway...
But otherwise, what with their death-rays and unspeakably nasty things that we would have to assume they are capable of since they have already found someway of crossing the vast void between their home and ours, I think we'd most likely be fucked.
would they suddenly get death rays from? As far as I'm aware the best they can do is some sort of beaming system which transports rather than destroys.
theyve got nukes or better than nukes.
so yeah, we have no chance.
But then again, it will mean that whole star wars programme wasnt a pointless waste of money.
I was more thinking TV, like Farscape and Stargate. Like in Farscape, John destroys the wormhole linking the Uncharted Territories and Earth, because he doesn't think we'd be able to defend ourselves against the Scarrans, but I think that's a bit patronising towards our scientists and military leaders. In fact it wouldn't surprise me if George Bush had a big, fuck off laser ready to go from the top of the White House as we speak. Because that's the sort of thing George Bush would do.
we've got boards with nails in them aplenty.
All we'd need to do is show them a DVD of what we've been doing to each other this past century or so, they'd fuck off out of it, sharpish.
"Yeah, Stalin, he was a bit of a cunt. But he's dead now. We have Jade Goody though."
"...on behalf of my race, I humbly apologise for... uhm... bye!"
It failed to do so last time.
It was very easy to invade, conquer and assimilate.
In what way would they benefit from either subjugating or destroying the human race? It's not as if we haven't pretty much successfully mined out whatever natural resources the Earth has got to offer, and if they've got the technology to get here then they probably don't need slaves. Unless they're just cunts I think the bigger worry is being turned into some sort of backwater west galaxy tourist spot for Gap Centurying Wookies and Chestbursters.
i love that idea. aliens vacationing on earth like the way westerners go to cancun :D
there was this flower that the Scarrans needed to increase their intelligence.
we're being menaced by aromatherapists?
if they had the technology to travel the millions of miles it would take to get here, then i am sure they would have figured out a way of completely erasing us from existence.
Just to send out a warning.
this post should have killed the thread.
"Oh. Okay then."
not that I'm trying to compare the workings of human and alien minds, but who's to say they'd want to kill us? If we discovered aliens on another planet, would we kill them? I wouldn't...
In the question.
Trut. The way it always went in my head is that some time in the future, we were the ones cutting a bloody swathe of rape and carnage through the universe, using the very latest in particle weapons and IMF structural adjustment programs.
lol at neoliberals.
in making kooky snowflake designs on farmer's crops.
