For those unaware: Fermi's paradox says there are no aliens, because where ARE they?
God I hate this dumb shit.
So, I said we should have ham for dinner, and I opened the door and we waited all night. No ham appeared. So, there must be no ham anywhere on earth right? Pigs are extinct?
Fermi's paradox takes no account of what the aliens want. It assumes they are just DYING to meet us.
I mean, why wouldn't they. We've achieved soooo much. And our standards of civilization and the habitability of our world *must* be universally appealing, right?
