Uh... ya that's how we solve problems. Take yer meds and the aliens will go away...

I don't think aliens know much about extracting saturated hydrocarbons out of a largish sea.

If you were an alien race, would you ~really~ care if a primitive race of idiots came to you asking for you to fix every little problem that they themselves created? If they are aware of us, I'm certain they are avoiding us for a REASON. You are part of it.
7/6/2010 2:04:08 PM
Out of morbid curiosity, exactly how is this request being transmitted to the aliens? Maybe they'll come and solve our problems by eating us.
7/6/2010 2:30:56 PM
This really isn't crazier than praying for the problem to solve itself.
I hold extraterrestrial life as much more likely than the possibility of an all-powerful god, if you're going to pray, aliens aren't the worst option.

Yeah...I wish aliens would just swoop in and fix the oil spill, too. While they're at it they could solve world hunger, tell us about an economic system that's both stable and doesn't rely on an unequal distribution of resources, give us the materials needed to clone animals we inadvertedly drove to extinction, and give us a renewable, environmentally-friendly energy source that's as good as or better than fossil fuels.
They can also give me a golden griffin to ride around, too.

Your chances of having ETs showing up with "advanced technology" to fix the oil-hole, are slightly better than jebus coming to the rescue.

And now, should they ever manage to stop the leak, it will be attributed to inviable undetectable alien intervention. Or perhaps Jesus with a giant plug.
7/6/2010 5:21:58 PM
Sure, because a petition will surely convince extraterrestrial life to come help us.
*Beckoning the nurse to come over to person*
@ #1176883: If by chance you were being facetious, I hope those aliens don't bring a book titled To Serve Man
EDIT: I wonder if Michael here has ever met with this guy
. I bet he would feel better about not having to get thousands of signatures for a petition.
7/6/2010 6:25:52 PM
Good idea. I'll contact the aliens immediately. I do that by yelling into my toaster.
7/6/2010 8:07:11 PM
Why should we help the puny humans with their chemical slime?
7/6/2010 11:08:32 PM
There had to be a catch. The first sentence actually made sense.
Then I got to the rest of this bullshit. Do people really believe stuff like this or is he just taking the piss?

Dude, there are are no exraterrestrials monitoring Earth.
1) The distances are far too vast. Pick up a Physics book instead of watching Star Trek.
2) If Aliens did show up, odds are high, they wouldn't be here to help us. We'd be toast.
3) Humans are not that interesting. Get over it your facinastion with yourself. We are nothing more than destructive chimps. We are not worth traveling and monitoring.

Online petitions are useless in getting humans in positions of power to do anything, what makes you think that an online petition will make an alien do anything?
Oh and I'm not sure they have the internet in other galaxies. Chances are pretty slim that AT&T has a server anywhere near Alpha Centauri.

Message: Clean up your own %&^@#*& mess. Maybe you should have had a plan in advance for fixing that well in case it burst.

Look at some history book what technology was used in the past before sprouting nonsense.
7/9/2010 12:42:10 AM
Yes! Crack out the placards and march on Area 51!
7/9/2010 6:35:32 AM
While we're at this stage of asking aliens to fix things, why don't we write a letter to Santa asking him to stop the leak, then put it in a letter addressed "North Pole" and let the US Postal service sort out the rest.
7/10/2010 8:50:27 PM
This would be the modern day version of Divine Intervention. They just substituted the Grays in for that god fellow.
7/16/2010 11:47:10 AM
Dude, stay away from the crack. It's bad for you.
7/20/2010 7:01:41 PM
Oily humanoids! Morbo laughs with scorn!
