Nah, you can write about Sam's brother who does end up getting flushed down a toilet.

These stories just show how we can try to understand life outside our solar system by guessing based on our point-of-view. But sadly it is very hard to make the correct guess when we, as "fish in the pond", are unable to comprehend what we are looking or experiencing outside our realm.

At the same time, it is egotistical to say life outside our solar system should match and follow the template defined by our perspective. We can not assume civilizations, who are 10,000 to 1 million years advanced than we are, will use the same communication or travel methods as we do.

Knowing that, how can we say the speed of light is the fastest speed an object can travel? History shows there are no boundaries when we put our minds together.

I agree!

Oh, and that Sam thing was a bit of cracking wise.
