    Question So Where's The Space Alien Invasion?

    2020 is a trainwreck with the COVID-19 and all the crazy stuff that's happening in the world. But there's one important element to add, where's space alien invasion? I'm looking for an actual space alien invasion but I can't find any.

    They're waiting for a gap month without anything else in it. However it looks like no months are free up until March, next year.

    Oh, so no wonder there's no space invasion on this planet this year. Well, that makes sense.

    I figure the aliens are probably chilling in orbit around Venus watching the show as we go nuts.

    No, you see, the alien invasion or robot overlords (or my finally getting permission) would be a GOOD thing (double-especially from my perspective) so it absolutely won't happen in 2020, which goes out of its way to be an malevolent as possible and to me in particular.

    So, no, there will be no alien invasion, not while 2020 lasts.

    That's not allowed. Mask are mandatory.


    Personally, I gather they watched the news, remembered the H G Wells story and are taking a detour around the huge space containment quarantine signs.

    I have to ask, who do you need to get permission from to conquer the world ?

    Don't we already have a lizard-person in charge of much of our daily communication with friends and family?

    It's impossible for things to happen that would benefit ME.

    Therefore, there will be no alien invasion/robot uprising etc, since that it a thing I WANT to happen.

    I think youve failed to consider some alternative scenarios here. There could be a robot uprising, and it would just be super disappointing, because all our robots right now are pretty lame and only a tiny fraction are capable of independent violence.

    While amusing to say, the Roomba Revolution is unlikely to be a culture shattering event.

    Thing is, last time aliens invaded they were taken down by the common cold. They 'ain't even going to try until COVID-19 is over.

    The war against the cats was lost long ago. If they fits, they sits. That is simply the way now.

    Actually I think the scariest thing that could happen for 2020, is one month... where nothing happens. Just waiting for the other shoe to drop... and then it doesn't.. for a whole month.

    And then it keeps going for another month, long enough for everyone to relax and think it's over...

    Then, last day of the 2nd month...
