I remember scribbling in the early days of this site that its exercise would include chronicling “inanities of the day.” With this story, I’m sorry to say, we have stayed on mission.
NASA scientists, it was reported today, along with Penn State University scientists, have spent time and money developing the following scenario as an admonition against the continued belching of greenhouse gases into the universe:
Alien creatures — I’m not making this up — come close to earth. They spot said foul emissions emanating from earth; interpret them/us as a threat to their peculiar species, and launch a blistering, preemptive attack on mankind. In an instant, we are all incinerated.
The message, naturally, is build a campfire, get incinerated by insecure nomadic aliens.
A few thoughts:
1. What the #@*!;
2. At least aliens understand the Bush Doctrine, and
3. What the #@*!
It’s amazing what some people get paid to do.
