If aliens landed today



Sitting here in my hotel room on Beach Road, looking out at the party below, I can’t help but wonder – if an alien species traveled a bazillion miles across the universe to visit earth, and by some strange miracle of chance, they landed here in Pattaya on April 19, they would probably turn around and go straight back home.  They might observe us for a while, noting our strange custom of wasting the most precious of commodities, water, and report back to their leaders that there is certainly no intelligent life on the blue marble.
