i have been forcibly reminded the voyager plates basically constitute a mixtape, unsolicited nudes, and directions to where we live
earth: the dm slider of the cosmos
humans be like 'hi ;). u up?'
can't believe this is my most faved and boosted post smh
@esvrld Shit. What if the WOW Signal was basically "Send Nudes"
Aliens on first contact: So we heard you like unsolicited nudes
@esvrld humans rly out here with that interstellar "come thru" text
@esvrld Everything posted on the internet is forever
As it turns out, so is launching shit into space
@esvrld aliens gonna send the police
@esvrld inb4 we find out that alien 4chan is much much worse
@esvrld And all of it put together by a committee chaired by the most thoroughgoing stoner of 20th-century science.
@esvrld I think you're mistaken.
iirc, They removed the nudes from the Voyager golden records after they got complaints about the nudes on the Pioneer plaque.
@esvrld Put that way... first contact situation might be a rather stern lecture from an intergalactic judge?
The good news is, if aliens ever show up looking for some action, there will be *thousands* of people lining up to fuck one.
@esvrld well at least this way when humans want to get it on with the aliens they won't be surprised.
@esvrld And it didn't come with a content warning.
@esvrld woulda gone viral on twitter
@esvrld ... i can. i totally can.
@esvrld pretty useless directions though as it turns out the things we used as landmarks are actually far more common than we'd thought
so it's basically like if we said "just down the street from the gas station" without telling anyone which gas station or even which city
@esvrld There's a REASON aliens never contact us!!
