Hypothetically speaking, advanced sentient extraterrestrials arrive on Earth in 2027 AD. They have whizzed to Earth from many, many light years away.

They look upon Earth.

(2027 AD, Earth time) China's not doing so bad. Europe looks mostly great. The Americas aren't doing badly. Asia's not so bad.

They then look upon SSA (Africa) and what? What do they think of the people, the continent, the infrastructure etc?

Hypothetically speaking, if advanced sentient extraterrestrial life arrived on Earth in 2027 AD, what would they think of SSA (and its people)?



EDIT: SSA = Sub-Saharan Africa/Sub-Sahara African nations, which does include the nation of South Africa...
edit on 29-7-2019 by AnakinWayneII because: SSA means Sub-Saharan Africa

Since when did South Africa become SSA? What is the extra s for?

Why would the aliens view SSA any differently to any other place?

Why South Africa in particular? Why not the U.S? Why not England or Israel? How about Syria or Iraq? Maybe New Zealand?

I could give reasons any country on Earth and it's people are crappy and would be bad representative for mankind.

Why that particular region of the world and no other. Because I guess the point is to paint the place in a negative light?

World equality is a unrealistic fantasy by some earthly hippies..
I bet all other advance races lack perfect equality.
South Africa people are not the ones you wanna hang out with, they get as many kids they can 10-15 and hope it will be boys that can serve as workers, unprotected sex and religious extremist and voodoo magic.. gangs killing each other over gold, supposition, slaves.. lots of times those gangs are kids that´s just been abandon by there parents, rasiscm against white people.. tourist get kidnapped, pirates patrol the waters..

The people in south Africa pursue all the wrong ways.. instead of building a country and caring for the nature.

Sub-Sahara African nations (SSA), bud, not simply South Africa...

Apologies I saw Africa in your post then South Africa in the next post and confused the two.
Sloppy reading on my part and I can admit it.

Doesn't change my questions like why that part of the World?
Just replace where I mention South Africa with the SSA.

But yeah the day someone on ATS actually responds to things I ask instead of cherry picking and avoiding them I'll be impressed. Would think any reasonable adult would be able to work out what I was actually saying.

If they're too hard to answer just say so and I'll happily move on.

The same thing they'd think about the rest of the earth, 'Look at all that food'.

Well, because, let's admit it - and let's not beat around the bush - SSA is much, much further behind than any other regions on the planet: the infrastructure, the development, the technology, skilled folks, higher education, technological development etc etc.

Hope that makes it clearer, bud.

Hypothetically speaking, they wouldn't care about one region or another. They would look at this rock as a whole.

They wouldn't do the compare game and the main reason I believe they wouldn't is that their first impression of humans would not be good enough to warrant any more thought on their part.

They would be more concerned, hypothetically speaking, with that which covers roughly 70% of the planet: Water. And the life therein.

My bad I thought this was what they thought of the Social Security Administration.

Have you every noticed in all the sci-fi tv shows and movies that when we get to an alien planet they seem to be a United planet?
One planetary rule.

Occasionally you'll get a story where two sides are fighting and we are stuck in the middle.

An alien would fly over us and think, "I'll come back when they get their # together"

The extraterrestrials will think the ones with more fat taste better?

That's exactly what I thought this was about! I thought the O.P. was gonna argue that aliens would find the Social Security Administration silly because it propped up the weak or something. You never know what you are gonna run into on this site.

Since when did South Africa become SSA? What is the extra s for?

Why would the aliens view SSA any differently to any other place?


Sub-Saharan Africa, bud. Thought the acronym would be clear...


Lot of variables there.


The UN Development Program lists 46 of Africa’s 54 countries as “sub-Saharan,” excluding Algeria, Djibouti, Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Somalia, Sudan and Tunisia.[4]

The figure of 46 is correct.

SSA is made up of 46 states, South Sudan included (Sudan excluded).

No variables. SSA is 46 states.

(EDIT: Although simplistic and in danger of being reductionist, SSA is basically "black Africa", if that makes sense.)

I meant between these places Morocco-Sudan different economies and all kinds of differences.

Wasn't clear for me. Though I did appreciate the clarification when you said "(Africa)".
