I never imagined we'd be visited by retarded aliens, but I guess anything is possible.

Yes, because a species that is capable of interstellar travel clearly wont have any concept of a vehicle, and certainly wont have high enough definition cameras to observe the lifeforms in them.

Oh wow.. havent seen that short in years..  good to know its still farking stupid.

Looks like the author of that article MAY have read certain books....

Aliens, having discovered the secrets to faster-than-light interplanetary travel (in addition to many other advances) will have no concept of "vehicles." They will also think dogs own us because we pick up their poop and serve them food, amiright?

Or maybe not. Didn't notice the film was from 1966 the first time I scanned the article.

I know that was supposed to be humorous, but it is kind of stupid as well. I would think that if an alien race is advanced enough for interstellar travel, that they'd also be advanced enough to scan for actual life signs and know the difference between a life form and a vehicle that the lifeforms travel in.

If we get visited by aliens that stupid, we can steal their interstellar flight technology and conquer their home world.

You got the obvious book, but this is the second thing I've seen today related to Donald Shoup's book about parking.

I'll just avoid clicking the TreeHugger link and assume it's as stupid as it sounds.

Any species that can perfrom FTL would of course recognize that Humans are not the dominate life form. They would then quickly be enslaved by their new overlords....cats

If aliens are smart enough to get here, they will know the difference between living and non-living things.

Not to mention, just because all movie aliens comes to American (specially New York, what about that city?), does not mean, they will come here. They might just as well go to Siberia and think Ice is the dominant life form (by that logic)

Unless you're the man from Mars. You go out at night, eating cars. You eats Cadillacs, Lincolns too; Mercuries and Subarus. And you don't stop, you keep on eatin' cars. Then, when there's no more cars, you go out at night and eat up bars where the people meet: face to face, dance cheek to cheek, one to one, man to man, dance toe to toe. Don't move too slow, 'cause the man from Mars is through with cars, he's eatin' bars. Yeah, wall to wall, door to door, hall to hall. He's gonna eat 'em all.

/and now he only eats guitars

Back in the 1970s, our local PBS affiliate had a fairly regular program late at night that featured animated shorts from around the globe.  Not sure of the year but I know that this short was broadcast back then.  Any info on the original production date on that thing?

If we get visited by aliens that stupid, we can bankrupt their government just by sending them Nigerian Prince emails.

FYI, Ford Prefect landed in Guildford, England.

You know, instead of New York, how about we make a designated spaceport for aliens to invade, out in the middle of the desert.

The cars aren't the dominant lifeform. It's those orange-and-white construction barrels. They use mind control rays to manipulate construction workers into building roads.

Is that the one where dogs are deemed the rulers, because humans follow them on a leash, picking up their holy poop?
 
2013-07-30 11:32:51 AM
any alien species advanced enough to create ftl will obviously be smart enough to think just like us genius humans, right??????
 
2013-07-30 11:35:09 AM
did anyone mention Ford Prefect yet?

I'm surprised that no one has tried to remake "Dark Star" yet.
 
2013-07-30 11:49:23 AM
Well, if the aliens use organic technology, they may assume that we're the vehicles, giant harvesters being driven around by Bacteroides.

And they'd be right.

Won't work. The aliens ARE the vehicles.

There's an old Walter Lantz or Friz Freleng or Tex Avery cartoon about this. I can't find it on youtube
 
2013-07-30 11:56:17 AM
I seem to remember a Merrie Melodies or Loony Tunes cartoon with the same theme, it was narrated like the "cars of tomorrow" Tex Avery toon, but showed cars going about their daily lives, "eating" at gas stations, "bathing" in car washes, etc.  My YouTube fu is not strong enough to find it, though.
 
2013-07-30 12:00:04 PM
I distinctly seem to recall a mid-'70's animated film that covered this exact topic, perfectly. No dear HHGG fans, DNA was *not* first!

Why do you assume faster-that-light travel?  An interstellar species could use sub-light travel, and it's actually doable right now with technology that we have or can imagine.
