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?'
@esvrld Shit. What if the WOW Signal was basically "Send 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 aliens, swipe right, bicj
@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.
