I just noticed this tagline under the TFD logo on the home page.
"10,774,452,855 visitors served"
Who knew alien anthropologists were using TFD as a source?

Question authority. How do you know, that you know, what you know?

Calvin knows why they get info from but don't contact us. (I love this cartoon and have posted it before on the forum.)



Of course, Epi, I am assuming you mean those aliens that come from outer space - or would they too be illegal aliens on a US website? Whistle Whistle Whistle

A man must be excessively stupid, as well as uncharitable, who believes there is no virtue but on his own side. Addison

There are far too many SciFi stories out there where illegal aliens are exactly that.

Alive in Joburg
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alive_in_Joburg
In 1990, Johannesburg is home to a number of extraterrestrial refugees, whose large spaceships (estimated to be nearly one kilometre in length) can be seen hovering above the city. When the visitors first arrived, the human population was enamored with, among other aspects, the aliens' advanced "bio-suits", and welcomed them with open arms. However, the aliens later began moving into other areas of the city, committing crimes in order to survive and frequently clashed with police. Playing as a documentary, the film continues with interviews and footage taken from handheld cameras, that highlight the growing tension between Earth's civilian population and the extraterrestrial visitors.

Illegal Aliens (novel)
http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/title.cgi?15639
A perfectly spherical white spaceship lands in Central Park to great global excitement, from which Leader Idow, an alien covered in blue fur, claims that his crew represent a Type III civilization that will test Earth's worthiness to be a member planet of their federation. Unbeknownst to the United Nations, the aliens are criminals (the equivalent of juvenile delinquents) who seek out planets with levels of technology similar to Earth's so that they can record the global violence and mayhem that will result from Earth's certain failure for their own prurient interests.

I'm sure the Almighty Orange One is an avid SciFi reader and is fully aware of the Clear and Present Danger that aliens present to the United States and I'm sure he has already taken his tour of Area 51.
