Are you taking us for amateurs? We've been invading planets for millennia. We know how it's done. Rule #1: Never let the idiots know you invaded them. Never.


 Rule #2: Don't mention Rule #1.

How's this for a movie plot?

 

  1. Aliens covertly conquer the earth, undetected by humanity. 
  2. One alien reveals the truth in a freelancer forum, assuming that no one will believe him.
  3. He is sent back to the alien home planet in disgrace.
  4. Another freelancer reads the alien's post and writes a movie script based on the idea. In the script, the alien plot is eventually uncovered. 
  5. The movie is made, one movie-goer becomes convinced it's true, and starts looking for evidence of the alien plot.
  6. But the alien's kill him, and the alien plot is never uncovered.

In your dreams.

 

The first thing that we did after we discretely invaded and took control of your pitiful planet was to hire a law firm that would sue anyone willing to release such a movie.

I like the stories where not even the aliens know that they're aliens. I'm starting to wonder about myself.

It's not movie but you have such scenarios in Twilight zone. Smiley Wink

Of course, despite the heavy-handed irony, there's Planet of the Apes, which brings up another point. If the aliens win and the movie is that bad, who cares?

It's not that I would like to live under alien rule, or see Earth destroyed, but rather that I would like Hollywood not to make aliens so stupid that they can't prevent a Windows laptop running XP from corrupting the computers on their gravity-defying ships- "ships" for lack of a better word.     


What if it was aliens that created "Signs" and fed it to M. Night Shamalan/Dr.Bimbu telepathically just to throw us off? 

 

We just need baseball bats, lots of water and boarded up windows and doors because..."I don't think they can figure out how to get in." 

 

Swing Merrill, swing.
