Maybe I'm missing something, but this is a sort of scientific research:

NASA: Aliens might destroy us

I think we can all work for NASA, coming up with various end-of-the-world scenarios involving aliens.

If I had to vote for one of the scenarios outlined in the article, I think we'd be bureaucratized to death. The aliens, with colonies all over the galaxy, have the worst redtape ever. This is the possibility least likely to be turned into a movie, and hence most likely to be reality.

Either they're already here, trying to do that to us, or else when they come we will conquer them with our superior red tape technology.

For anyone not aware of the situation, this is not an official NASA report. It's something that an intern at NASA did on his free time with a couple buddies. Unfortunately, he put down his NASA affiliation on it and now everyone thinks NASA is wasting their taxpayer dollars on this. You can read the guy's own words about this paper here.

According to the link, he is a postdoc (he has a doctorate degree, probably in some sort of science or engineering, and most post-doctoral positions are paid positions that last a year to three years, with little or to no chance of renewal). But it sounds like he did this on his spare time, as a fun project with his buddies. We should definitely encourage such hobbies. They're more productive than spectator sports for sure.

If I were an alien I surely would try to wipe out the human race. We are rude, crude and socially unacceptable, and we dress funny.

But how? We are amazingly resilient to plagues, famines, fires, floods, earthquakes and invasions. Just release the British hooligans - never mind the SAS - and we'd kick some alien boo-tay right smartly.

Ok, wipe out MTV, all reality TV shows and kidnap and hold for ransom one of the Kardashian sisters (which is the one with the large boo-tay?) Maybe that would work for Gen whichever letter they are using now.

As for me, I have a .357 and a shovel, send em.

Expert economist and Nobel prize winner Paul Krugman of course sees the space alien threat as a way to re-invigorate the US economy (er I mean the military industrial complex)

http://newsbusters.org/blogs/noel-sheppa...-massive-defens

So I wouldn't be too surprised if one day we all wake up to find out the Federal Reserve building was destroyed by a Space Alien terrorist organisation while the surrounding protesters singing 'Huffity, Puffity, Ringstone Round' became vapors. And everyone thought ET was a friendly little fellow. wink

Dude, the Kardashians, along with Snooki, "The Situation," etc. are our answer to alien invasion. We just have to export this culture and soon their civilization will fall apart. They have no defenses against earthling sleaze. A Vulcan will bleed from both pointy ears and fall in violent seizure as he attempts to reconcile anything uttered by these people to the rules of logic. As for Klingons? No good death or honor is to be found on Jersey shore.

I agree, reality TV stars and late night infomercials are our best defense.
