I’ve spent enough time on the internet to become absolutely convinced that the world is ending, and that The Man isn’t telling us about it. Seriously.
Might be a zombie outbreak, might be an unavoidable collision with some wandering celestial body, or maybe it’s some combination of the two: that is, alien invasion!
When a respectable foreign policy journal (coincidentally named “Foreign Policy”) posts an article about stuff DARPA’s working on that could fight off an alien attack, well then…you just have to wonder. Or not.
I mean hot damn, what’s not to like about that action? All the opportunities for mass mayhem, without the guilt of shooting creatures that might look like your neighbors. Or, you know, might actually be your neighbors. If they hadn’t gone all zombie-undead and everything. Sorry man, but I like my brain right where it is, thankyouverymuch.
And then some hoity-toity scientist just has to go and blow holes in all of it. Geez. They’re spoiling all of my apocalyptic plans. What am I going to do with all these hollow-points and tactical bacon?
In the meantime, it gives me an excuse to link to awesome artwork like this:
