BunkoSquad: A dreadful silence fell across the conference table as the commander of the Vl'hurgs, resplendent in his black jewelled battle shorts, gazed levelly at the G'Gugvuntt leader squatting opposite him in a cloud of green sweet-smelling steam, and, with a million sleek and horribly beweaponed star cruisers poised to unleash electric death at his single word of command, challenged the vile creature to take back what it had said about his mother.The creature stirred in his sickly broiling vapour, and at that very moment the words"YOLO SWAG LOL" drifted across the conference table.Unfortunately, in the Vl'hurg tongue this was the most dreadful insult imaginable, and there was nothing for it but to wage terrible war for centuries.Eventually of course, after their Galaxy had been decimated over a few thousand years, it was realized that the whole thing had been a ghastly mistake, and so the two opposing battle fleets settled their few remaining differences in order to launch a joint attack on our own Galaxy - now positively identified as the source of the offending remark.

Slaxl: AliceBToklasLives: By the time anyone intelligent gets the message and is able to respond I'll be long gone so ain't my problem.What if the aliens are the moon? Now you've pissed them off by suggesting they're not intelligent, and the moon awakens from its millenia of dormant slumber, preparing to wreak revenge upon those humans that have mocked, scoffed, and insulted the flavour of it's cheese.
Quantum Apostrophe: They can't get here just like we can't get there. Stop worrying.
wildcardjack: the galactic civilization
wildcardjack: I'm not worried about our signals and I have no reason to suspect us to hear them...All our signals fuzz out within a few light years. Radio isn't likely to be used for long range communications and if we could figure out what the galactic civilization actually uses for telecom transmission I bet we'd find a pan-galactic version of Science Channel. And HSN.
Ned Stark: Turns out faster than light travel is easy but signaling hard. All messages in spess are hand delivered letters.Err, Tentacle delivered anywayy.
