So I read a recent article where Stephen Hawking made a comment on aliens saying that we should try to avoid making contact with them as they may not be friendly towards them. I completely agree. Based upon our basest actions and xenophobia who is to say that aliens won't greet us with a laser bolt to the head. I mean seriously trying to contact aliens that must be a chapter in the book Stuff White People Like. Have you seen Independence Day, that movie made me afraid of aliens and transformed Will Smith from the Fresh Prince to an action star. The transformation of Jeff Goldblum from nerdy pussy to tough guy? Not so much. But seriously if aliens did come here, its not like they would even get a unified message from us. I mean wouldn't we Americans, be like "Hey listen to us the Russians don't know what they are talking about!" This whole thing would denigrate down into something like fraternity rush. "Don't talk to the Americans, they aren't shit!" We can't even really get along with each other, who wants to post a craigslist ad to live with something that can travel from light years away and whip our ass. Forget leaving dirty dishes in the sink!

Warhammer 40K bro. Kill and Conquer or be Killed and Conquered.

Fuck bro, Dune..."Since I am become Muad'ib a billion planets have died..."

I reckon there is scads of life out there. Hopefully in our solar system we have nothing but pond scum and basic multi-cell life we can conquer without trying too hard or doing an Andromeda Strain by mistake. I hope anything as or more evolved than us too far away to care...

Stephen Hawking's Universe series had a whole show about aliens where he talked about why we shouldn't contact them. I have to agree. Aliens aren't going to travel light years to just shake our hand and leave. Put ourselves in that position, how many times have we gone somewhere to return with nothing in hand. We'd totally get annihilated.

Brian,

There have been plenty of times we've returned with nothing in our hands. Granted, it was all stored in cargo hulls but ...

For real if they have seen any skateboard accident videos on YouTube then they know to just aim for the junk, that's our point of weakness!
