Why did the planners complicate future encounter translation possibilities by putting "multi-lingual" messages on the discs? If, an intelligence of any kind finds the messages, seems one language would be less confusing. Cracking the language code is the hard part, now they have multi codes to crack. I would not want to read a book where every chapter was in a different language, especially if I didn't know any of the languages and had no idea they were mixed. Shoulda kept it simple, if you ask me, which of course, no one did. haa ha.

Sheet! Remember Ron HUBBARD's cult. He wrote his book with a dictionary for every word. I do not like to read a book often that requires I use a dictionary. Different languages are difficult enough in that same way. Only I think we have different dicktionaries.

Gracious!

SH@T again! Reading between the lines is difficult enough. Especially when they text half the sentence or there is only one sentence. Don't read or write much and most certainly probably can't type or talk 98wpm like little ol' me does!

LOL Again, indeed!

We will see if you're LOL'ing when ET sticks a Flavor-Straw in your skull and "SWOOOOOSH" out comes your brain! I nominate Ed Stone to be the first to go!

No, I'm sure any advanced alien race will love us, once they get to know us...

Us: "Rush, once the aliens arrive man, you've gotta shut the fk up, okay?"
Rush Limbaugh: "Okey doke.., but can't I say 'slut'?"
Us: "Not unless you want us processed for alien doggie treats!"
Rush Limbaugh: "Maybe y'all need to gag me, just to be sure."
