Why the heck would aliens 'invade'...
Resources... you're kidding right? All of the resources that aliens could ever want are in much greater abundance and more available for collection
in space, even within our solar system. Instead of having to dig up the earth to gather billions of tonnes they could just sweep by outer space and
collect trillions of tonnes of the stuff, even water. If they've managed to develop the tech to travel this far, you can be damn sure they know how
to harvest the elements that are freely floating about out there in massive clouds, ejected from exploding stars and collected in massive planetary
More likely that they want a colony, the alien equivalent of the log cabin in the woods. Heck, sitting on a tin machine for travel across the universe
has to be boring as hell, like any car journey. When you find the rest stop, you stretch your legs don't you?
My guess is that if they want a beach front view right here on earth they won't bother 'invading' because they will already have dealt with us
before they even touch down. They may farm us a bit... we reproduce like gerbils and probably make quite a nice meal, plenty of meat and all that.
Nah, they'll wipe out most of the population before touching down, then mop up the rest and breed us like cows and pigs.
There won't be an invasion as such, more of a wipe-out with a bit if safari and farming on the side...
Ohh... pass me another rib...
