I thought of this a while ago and have been eager to be able to start a thread, to see what peoples thoughts or ideas on this concept or similar
concepts that stem from it are. Its purely hypothetical, but lets just say there are aliens. Chances are that if they where intelligent enough to get
within a certain distance from us, they would probably want to overlook and analyse what sort of civilization we are. So lets jus say they wanted to
overlook our culture, but not disturb us in anyway, not even take the chance on it. They would probably be able 2 intercept our local transmissions,
chiefly televison would be of interest I'd expect. Which leads me to my point imagine an alien coming to earth with knowledge of our language/culture
gained through televison. Firstly the way he speaks would probably be funny, a mish-mash of various dialects, and slang words, and languages.
Secondly, i think thats quite a scary thought given the amount of corporate war mongering propoganda, i hate to think what they would think of us as a
race. And plus the amount of crappy TV an repeats they'd probably doubt our intelligence an think we are easily satisfied an entertained. Which has
jus led me to another thought, imagine if aliens had TV what would they watch, i can only begin to imagine.
