The Alien Posts

You send your blog into space.

Aliens find it and read it.

What posts should be first on their reading lists?

What posts do you wish were deleted?

That's fabulous. CraigsList blasts posts into space, too (do aliens care about "missed connections" or jobs?).

Hi Sandra,
Good to see you. Good questions both. :)

"What posts should be first on their reading lists?"

The many uses of tinfoil!

What posts do you wish were deleted?

"My parents were probed by aliens and all I got was this lousy tee-shirt" and other catchy slogans for the recently abducted.

Hi Mark,
That's a great idea, the many uses of tinfoil! :)

Yeah you might want to delete that second one, we don't know yet if aliens have a sense of humor.

I think I'm going to have to check your blog out more deeply. Those are some posts I've haven't seen yet.

I would want to read my mission statement first probably so they could find what they want.

I think my profanity filled articles about snow might make them worry and turn back home.

I am glad I didn't put in the article about Alien encounters with isolated farmers... must of slipped my mind.

I do hope that they leave comments, that would be good of em.

ME Strauss said...

I think you have a plan there. I like the part about commenting aliens. Hopefully they can write a language we can read.:)

Maybe aliens wouldn't really care for Blogs. I'd send mine though just in case they may like them and I don't think I'd hide any posts or direct them to read any special ones. I'd let them wander through. :o)

ME Strauss said...

That's a really open-minded approach. I think the aliens would like your blog. Nice pieces that give them a clear, inviting picture of the beauty of our world. I bet they would read everything.

That's so funny.

NOw, let me think - probably the ones who criticize the human race too much. You know, just in case...

Welcome home, Melly,

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Maybe not the one on Social Conformity. We don't want to give all of our secrets away.
