    Looking Objectively upon the World

    Slightly strange thread, but something that I have been thinking about as of late is to look upon the Earth objectively - ie. from the view of a total outsider (like an alien with no prior studying of the planet). This includes the actions of people, the manufacture of the human body, etc...

    An example of which, albeit a slightly crude one, is how people have different natural characteristics and what this stems from. For example, with no experience of heights whatsoever, one may be terrified of them whereas another would relish the challenge to climb Everest.

    I'll post more when I return from my game today, but what are your thoughts (if any), upon attempting to look upon the Earth, as we know it, objectively.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    I'd heard this before, and agree with it:

    If I'm an alien I'm thinking dogs rule the earth. If you see two species, and one is picking up the other's crap for it, who would you say runs the place?

    I don't know. Do humans live for 10 years (if they're lucky) before being injected full of intentionally fatal drugs by dogs and killed?

    I thought the whole external perception thing was Burgey's point, as opposed to the whole reality of the scenario. Stop me if I'm wrong.

    I think they'd just think they'd turned on the television and there was some bizarre remake of Logan's Run on, to be honest.

    Only westerners do that tbh

    I expect they would find humans awfully messy.
