"Up above aliens hover, makin home movies for the folks back home,
Of all these weird creatures who lock up their spirits,
Drill holes in themselves and live for their secrets,
We're all uptight, uptight...."
Excerpt from the song "Subterranean Homesick Alien"
Thom Yorke, Radiohead.
Humans have a laugh, dolphins give the impression of being happy campers, chimpanzees have fun at tea parties, cats can get real contented, and I've even seen a dog smile, (even though it's said it can't be done). So as far as intelligence goes, the higher it gets, then does that mean the higher the sense of humour becomes? With that in mind, is it possible aliens with greater technology and intelligence than us are more prone to being pranksters?
Should we drop the whole sinister attitude we seem to portray of beings from another planet? It didn't do the human race any favours during the cold war in having misconceived perceptions about what little culture we each failed to understand. Judging other people by our own standards though is a common trait. So who's more to trust? The little green dudes, or the dudes of little green thoughts. If aliens do exist, do you think they are taking the piss out of us by their brief cameo appearances in flying tea cups and saucers, or are they undoubtedly hostile with an ulterior menacing motive? Careful now.
Hey - as the religionists keep telling me - If you can't disprove it - it might be true and worth basing your entire life around.
Seriously - I had a very odd conversation this week that involved the human race being "created in the image" of an alien who seeded us. It was a sign.
So - yeah sure - I will believe this and base my life on it. Where do I sign up?
I'm not sure that there are any little green men. Let's say I'm an agnostic where aliens are concerned - I'm going to disbelieve unless I receive positive proof of their existence. (And the "proof" is going to have to be a helluva lot more convincing than a blurry saucer-shaped object in the sky.)
If they do exist then yes, they're probably laughing their socks off at our antics.
The aliens are laughing at our expense...at least that's what they told me...the last time they beamed me up into their spaceship!
I do know this, if I had access to that kind of technology I be having as much fun with it as possible and teasing the locals in between meals, then I would take the video evidence back home to my planet of Xxxarrglzqex 12 and sell the footage of disbeliefed lolly gaggers to the local network version of "Caught On Camera". And I'm sure I wouldn't be the only one.
Now are we talking about the little green men, the ones that look like E.T., or the ones that are disgusting like in the movie Alien?
I dont know about jokesters but they sure were handy when I was pouring concrete!
we'll make great pets, we'll make great PETS! Porno for Pyros...
i love radiohead btw..
sucks. my kids are making bouncy balls.....thats pretty cool
Dope, na not any more, but I'm sure there's still a hint of it lingering around in the bloodstream, along with the acid.
I think that the aliens have high jacked the forum. It looks so weird!
HELLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We are the aliens, Duh..
Come on people get heads out of your butts, stop being followers, and take a REALLY good look around, up and down. It is documented fact that the United States is the only country that is still keeping this information from it's public. Political heads from different countries have addressed this issue in our own country on CNN and various other networks, stating their frustration to our government for not letting the public know of "alien" existance. It's been well documented, it's been covered up, and it's been disclosed. Presidents know, but have been told to keep their mouths shut if they want to have a successful term, etc.
My advised to everyone is to clear your heads, get focused and put all your petty judgments aside cause it's about to get really real.
thats a great point and could be true. i hope they have a sense of humar like we do.
I think, yes, we're being laughed at...
Perhaps we weren't here FIRST at all? Our egos keep us from examining a lot of things...
