He’s the best!
And the forms that it takes. Arthropoids. Cephalapoids. The names we give the aliens and the names they give themselves.
Aliens and stimulants
Humanity’s beverage history
And in particular how wonderfully wonderful caffeine is. Dwarf Fortress and ale supplies. Depressants vs stimulants and the shape society.
The “real” Men in Black
Frustration with being made a joke.
Human gestation and intelligence
Evolution, hip size, and cranial size. Bipedalism. Early homo adaptations and social assisted delivery.
Earth as universal backwater
Alien advocates for the ethical treatment of dumb humanity.
Possible unreliable narrators. Neuralizers vs “memory sticks.” This is my roofie stick. Short term and long-term memory “wiping.”
