That’s how I got here.


#3

Given current events, I’m absolutely positive that your spacecraft was completely destroyed.


#4

That was your farm I crashed in?


#5

That’s okay. The DoA pays me to not grow corn.


#6

Roger That!


#7

Ohh great… Here comes Trisolaris


#8

Just don’t act surprised if, as per the invitation, the extraterrestrials show up naked & offering a quasi ‘Sieg Heil’.


#9

They don’t need a map; they know exactly where we are, they’ve been avoiding us for ages.

“No one wants to meet Meat.”


#10

Seriously, did they not read “The Three Body Problem”?


#11


#12

delightfully, extraterrestrials think we are all nudist.


#13

#14

Probably Bob Heinlein’s fault.

BTW any extraterrestrial who finds the Pioneer or Voyager probes will have been watching Earth TV for the last couple of years of their flight


#15

Let me guess - hitched a ride with a teaser?


#16

In that case, we’re doomed.


#17

Second star to the right and straight on 'til morning.

“Fresh & Juicy, thin, tender skin, ripe for the picking! Right here, 2/3 of the way out between the 1st and 2nd large spiral arms of the Milky Way! Come get us before we’re gone!”


#19

Good thing we’re not beaming a constant stream of radio waves out in to space like a giant beacon saying “HERE WE ARE!” Nope, good thing we’re not doing that.


#20

IIRC they know where we are and have scheduled our planet for demolition as it lies right in the path of a proposed hyperspace express route…
