I watched a show by Michio Kaku on how we could defend against an alien invasion. It never occurred to the physicist that the aliens would simply launch a biological attack. No need for lasers and spaceships and fancy weapons when you can just kill everyone with a virus.

You and I are on the same page. We were watching that show, and I told my wife if aggressive aliens ever showed up we'd be dead instantly -- either biological, nano, or some other tech that targets whatever lifeform you want eradicated. There'd be no fight -- none.

I agree. If either of you read David Weber, that's how he had the aggressive aliens wipe out the populous. Develop a virus, seed the atmosphere and vioci, there you go, nice clean world to inhabit.

But is it really wrong of me to hope that one day we'll get to see a real UFO? :-)
