Like, “let me graft this justice-loving super-weapon onto you” bad. In before the wee little kiddies need human flesh-suits to survive or something. Garth Hill November 5, 2019 at 9:37 am 3 years ago i’m getting VERY bad vibes about how these aliens might use the bathroom. Night-Gaunt49 November 5, 2019 at 12:49 am 3 years ago Watch that planet be Terra firma itself. And those big dark puppy-dog eyes hide guile and deceit. DSL November 5, 2019 at 9:07 am 3 years ago I’ve never met big dark puppy-dog eyes that didn’t. War Pig November 5, 2019 at 2:15 am 3 years ago I once had a first sergeant who could swear in nine languages. Kaidah November 5, 2019 at 8:42 am 3 years ago A true Renaissance man. lol I used to work with a couple of people who could curse equally fluently in both English and French, but growing up on the border with Quebec it wasn’t anything unusual. Pete Rogan November 5, 2019 at 6:39 pm 3 years ago It’s convenient, isn’t it? You can choose whether to be understood or not, which comes in handy when your first thought is ‘puki malu.’ Coyoty November 5, 2019 at 2:37 am 3 years ago “By the way, are you gay?” “…What?” “What do you do for sex?” “I thought the tabloids just made this stuff up.” Jude November 5, 2019 at 2:48 am 3 years ago So is Christopher, did you have need of that particular Spanish sentence (substituting US for outer space) when you’ve travelled in some of the more remote Spanish speaking parts of the world? I guess that when you said “come in peace”, they quickly grabbed whatever manner of weapon they had handy to make sure it was peace. Rikard November 5, 2019 at 3:55 am 3 years ago The very idea of using a gun, or gun-like tool, to implant something into the skull or equivalent by shooting the recipient must have been designed by committee! Or an exasperated schoolteacher. “I want to talk with you, let me shoot you in the head”. Oh, and Eco-develop? Committee! “Make habitable for our species” they mean. DSL November 5, 2019 at 9:11 am 3 years ago They shot a chip into his brain but the gun’s aimed at his crotch. On what are the canids basing their conjectures of human male anatomy? Speaking of canids — I wonder if the communicatin’ coyote and condo-crushin’ canids story threads will intertwine? Seems like a decent story setup. DSL November 5, 2019 at 9:12 am 3 years ago … time (and CB) will tell. Laura Bauer November 5, 2019 at 8:30 am 3 years ago I love that we can now see the size of the aliens with respect to humans. It is not what I expected. :-> Meran November 5, 2019 at 8:42 am 3 years ago Me neither. Garth Hill November 5, 2019 at 10:16 am 3 years ago dogs of course have big hearts, so naturally they need large bodies as well. i was also surprised the alien-dogs were so small in these images. Meran November 5, 2019 at 8:45 am 3 years ago I’m wondering (on a second read)…. does the Terran (or Earther… I can’t remember which term Chris is using)… speak Spanish? Because it’s funnier if he doesn’t, at all. They just picked the wrong language to approach with. Tagged him with the chip anyway. As they’d planned. Efogoto November 5, 2019 at 12:10 pm 3 years ago Well, they are in Murcia, Spain … if these pups are any good at navigation. TB November 5, 2019 at 12:45 pm 3 years ago The “chip gun” must be a recent invention. They started out using a hat. It’s interesting how many aliens think “earth people” are the answer for any interstellar crisis. Is it possible that our science fiction TV shows, which show almost nothing but earth people saving the universe, are responsible? Whispers of “Star Trek” transmissions, drifting across the galaxy, and the galaxy coming to Earth for help. Heck, that was the entire plot of “Galaxy Quest,” and it seems quite plausible in some ways. Christopher November 5, 2019 at 2:29 pm 3 years ago The chip gun was introduced at the beginning of the second iteration. And surprisingly (I know that I’M surprised) in this particular case, earth was chosen for a very solid reason. Which will be revealed someday. 🙂 TB November 6, 2019 at 10:44 pm 3 years ago Oh, come on. It’s ALWAYS Earth. That’s where writers and moviemakers keep all their stuff. Just once I wanted to see a far future space movie where the people on the starship bridge are watching the giant killer space robot move off into the star field… “Where’s it headed, science officer?” “It’s headed directly for…(dramatic pause)…EARTH!” “Where the hell is “Earth?'” steve gallacci November 5, 2019 at 1:20 pm 3 years ago While it sounds like a made up term, it seemed familiar so I had to check and be sure, and yeap, Wernicke area is where speech is comprehended. Meran November 6, 2019 at 1:25 am 3 years ago Yes. It is. Which shows the dedication Chris has to Truth…. except for what he’s made up ???????????? Meran November 6, 2019 at 1:27 am 3 years ago Those question marks were emojis. 😀 Font Lady November 5, 2019 at 6:25 pm 3 years ago Now you’ve got me channeling CLUE: “Let us in! Let us in!” “Let us out! Let us out!” Pete Rogan November 5, 2019 at 6:42 pm 3 years ago Oh. Oh God. Oh dear God. What if news of the aliens needing a planet gets out and Earth kids see the aliens and their young? Forget eco-development. We’d better start worrying about keeping newspapers from folding, because we’re going to need newspapers. A LOT of newspapers. —Chris, feel free to delete this if, you know. DSL November 5, 2019 at 11:05 pm 3 years ago Especially Sunday editions. We’re going to need a lot of rolled-up newspapers, hefty ones, to keep this canid horde at bay. Meran November 6, 2019 at 1:29 am 3 years ago I use “jimmies”, little squares cut to size, for putting under (human) babies. They’re washable! Night-Gaunt49 November 5, 2019 at 11:33 pm 3 years ago Rikard in an old Fireball X-L 5 the advanced humans dropped bombs that grew forth food plants for a poor group who thought bombs are only for war not farming. Pete Rogan November 6, 2019 at 9:57 pm 3 years ago Gerry Anderson IS God. Gyrre November 25, 2019 at 8:13 am 2 years ago They’re a lot larger than I initially thought. Sanfransam July 17, 2020 at 9:49 pm 2 years ago I know I have a lot of catching up to do, but I would not mind if these guys stick around. They crack me up.
