we keep pretending that aliens are so smart.
we figure if they could make it here then they must be geniuses since we havent made it there yet.
but thats not scientific that’s narcissistic.
aliens could have had dumb luck. or could be just super good at space travel but dumb everywhere else.
its like these dudes at this gym im about to quit cuz it costs way too much. (i’ll use the gym at work now that i know what to do.)
but often id look at dudes in the locker room and id say how does this guy afford this gym? that guy i understand, he’s getting his rolls valeted at the curb, but This guy?
they probably say that about me too. but i bet we’ll all say it about the first alien that ends up here. how did this loser make it?
for if they were really smart, theyd just disguise themselves as babies.
and let us teach em everything.
