Cnet : Just when you thought the world was defenseless against beings from outer space, along comes a former British Government adviser to declare that the nation has anti-alien weapons ready.
Do they know which weapons alien will bring with them if they really exist .
Yes this is too funny, I was thinking the same thing.. To imply that you have anti-alien weapons would mean you have seen the weapons the aliens have and you can now protect against those... "So Let me get this straight.." the Brits say they have anti-alien weapons ready to go Day one... and they don't need beta testing because there already good... "Oh god I hope they don't work like Apple Maps" *_*
Look, we can't keep illegals out clinging onto the bottom of the eurostar. Let alone aliens that travelled halfway across the galaxy to no doubt exploit Britain's fine free national healthcare. They turn up and we'll give them a free house, welfare money and gratis gastric band surgery like everyone else.
vulcanproject Cynical much ........true though. @ crazy If they have weapons they probably have data or real knowledge of outer world tech. Its not too silly to believe the earth has been visited on many occasions. If our governments let the masses know most religions would be questioned harder than they are already.....us tech heads dismiss the church and religion but they (in their various versions) still holds power. Soften us up with films and media.... desensitize us to the notion....educate..who knows.
@ Why o why so wait you are telling me you believe in Aliens from outer space.. I personally have never seen an alien in my life and when someone tells me they believe someone else / like the government has seen aliens - I tend to want to sell those people a bridge at a really low price... and for a small fee of $59.95 I can put a low jack on it... LoL I mean seriously, come on' Aliens... Maybe there's another reason why the gov. tells you that there are aliens out there, could it be, because building a dam Area 51 is a huge waste of money that no one will approve. -But as soon as I say aliens are found out there we suddenly have a huge budget to build an outrageous facility... -Doing god knows what - http://science.howstuffwork... I guess you still believe the world is ending in 2012.. -well good luck with that one.., tell me all about it in 2013. Oh but you have a good point, you can't be too safe, I have some anti-alien computer virus protection that I can sell you for $169 dollars, it keeps aliens from being able to see what your typing... ? I can get it to you for that extra low price because your going to be one of the first people to test it.. -Don't worry if you can't see the box or the software because they are both invisible... I just need your credit card info and I'll get that right out to you. *_*
If you honestly believe that out of the entire universe that humans are the only intelligent beings then your not being very logical. There are estimated billions of galaxies in the universe. Are you telling me we are the ONLY galaxy out of billions with life? I'm not saying aliens are little green men, but the probability of aliens existing is very very good. Just because you can't see something, that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.
Crazyglues.. I dont believe the world was ending or i woulda left stratford where i live with my family ...you know where the apocolympics was supposed to be. ¬_¬ What I am saying is that there has been way too much evidence suggesting we are not the ONLY lifeform in this here universe... Im not a conspiracy theorist but once you've seen real life hieroglyphs depicting things in the sky in a time where there weren't planes you have to open your eyes .... if even just a little. Most things stay hidden because humans lost their higher senses....Diluted, living off tangible proof alone... The ol 'If it cant be proven to ME it doesn't exist' type beliefs.. keeps people safe and secluded i guess. So yeah, take the pee out of me but I'd look at the ancient Egyptians pictures over an alex jones or david ike BUT it didnt take the viewing of the hieroglyphs for me to at least considered there may be life out there beforehand
They finally weaponized the Tesseract that their spies took from Hitler.
Thats right aliens. You better watch your asses, we kept Winston Churchill AND Oliver Cromwell on ice, and if worse comes to worse we'll deploy Maggie Thatcher too
Why don't we just give them Thatcher instead?
Oh great britain. We pay people to have babies and not work (well I guess having babies is their job) We are to concerned with prisoners having xboxes and getting free education. We even give human rights to monsters who deserve nothing. Oh, and we have anti-alien weapons. Good spending.
People these days sure have their priorities straight. Rewarding people for nothing and weapons to use on aliens.
And i have the lotto numbers.
Uh.. if you don't mind I'm going to need to see those numbers for my own reasons, which I will explain to you after we win... uh.. -"I mean after you win."...LoL
If aliens do exist they would be too far ahead of us or too behind . if we consider ther are too far ahead then britain weapons will be useless else if they are too behind they wont come . But still those weapons might come handy against terrorism i assume .
Wasting resources and money on things that are almost useless and has very little practical application, that's about as British as you get these days tbh.. PROUD TO BE BRITISH derp.
"If aliens do exist they would be too far ahead of us or too behind" Well to traverse space far enough to reach us alive...they'd have to be well ahead. But then, who's to say they'd have malicious intent?
"But then, who's to say they'd have malicious intent?" The aliens should be the one to fear humans. Maybe I've just seen too many movies, but I'm sure the government will try to take them in for scientific research.
what about ufo can they detect and hunt them down ?!?!
Didn't we already have anti-alien weapons? Thermonuclear warheads? If they can survive a 2Mt direct hit we shouldn't bother fighting.
LOL. True dat.
What's the use of a nuke if they can evade it at light speed? It'll be the same as shooting ourselves in the foot.
@tarbis YUMAKEIMAGINATIONTIMESOBORING :(
There is a long key on your keyboard called "space bar". learn how to use it.
I am really sorry to be pessimistic but BAE's Tyrannis (I assume that is what they are referring to) will not be of any use against a space faring civilisation. True, Tyrannis can dominate anything that America, China and Russia has at it's disposal regardless of what they haven't made public but we are talking about an advanced alien species. Do these people in our government assume that visitors will be biological? Hockams Razor suggests that any extra-terrestrial visitor will be the result of a technological singularity. That is worrying, because if we humans had our own T.S. then it would advance more in one week than we managed in our 3 million year history. So imagine an alien T. S. that may have occurred millennia ago! They'd likely have the technology to influence a star, increasing or decreasing it's output to freeze or boil a planet. A drone will not do much against that, but alas, probability does state that in our galaxy and beyond at least one civilisation achieved Singularity and as such, they are here already watching us. As we are still alive, their intentions are not nefarious and why should they be? What can machines achieve from Earth domination? There is more energy to be gained from all the stars, they have no need for Earth resources when neutron stars provide a multitude of more material and they have no reason to deal with us now before we become a threat... Because they will always be advancing faster than us. Tyrannis will not scratch them, thankfully it appears that we don't need it to anyway. Now if only we spent that military cash on Fusion power research instead. Sigh.
At least America has Optimus Prime.
Too bad Optimus Prime was created in Japan.
The British do have an anti alien weapon. A madman in a blue box.
The weapon is obviously Dr Who. *Edit* As Quod says.
Remember, David Tennet's first Christmas Special? The anti-alien laser belonged to Torchwood.
It would be funny if their weapons actually gave the aliens more power.
Or just turned it into helium like in Mars Attacks!
So which alien are they expecting first? Martians? Jupiterians? Romulans? Klingons? or the Sith Empire? If the Sith Empire comes, I'm joining them.
They have cookies :D
i know what the weapon is: Benny Hill. most effective weapon against aliens and humans alike.
im drunk and this is perfect to drink to, im serrous though this is cool, i believe in aliens, but seriously anti alien weapon? bull, they are probably wayyyyyyyyyy more advanced.
Wtf Mexicans makin it to uk rofl
