I am not an alien and I have proof!
In any Hollywood movie where the aliens invade Earth the aliens are always defeated not by bullets, missiles or nuclear weapons but by a virus. We obviously can’t see the virus beating the alien, we just see the alien dropping to its knees (or alien equivalent) before eventually giving in or fleeing the planet.
I was struck down with by a virus this week and survived. So if I survived a virus I can’t be an alien, in pure Sherlock Holmes logic. I feel better now that I know that I am not an alien. I was not destroyed by a virus therefore I am not an alien.
We frequently hear people, especially the more mature amongst the workforce, being encouraged to ‘share their knowledge’. I came across these examples this week of people who shared but perhaps it wasn’t the best idea;
* A robber enters the bank wearing a full face motorcycle helmet, takes the money and escapes but is almost immediately arrested. He ‘shared’ his identity by having his name painted across the front of his helmet.
* A robber breaks into an office and holds the manager at knife point and demands money. The manager explains they don’t have much cash but if he would take a cheque they had plenty of money in the company’s bank account. The robber agreed to take a cheque and when the manager asked “Who should we make the cheque payable to?”, the robber shared his name. He was arrested shortly thereafter.
* A bank was about to be shut down and demolished when bank robber broken in at time. The found the vault empty and lying open. They were amazed at the acoustics of the large empty vault and one of them decided to see what would happen to the acoustics if they closed the vault door. Fortunately one of them remained outside when they close the vault door to check. Several hours later he still couldn’t get the vault door open to release his colleagues and eventually had to call the fire and rescue to release them. Sharing a curiosity about acoustics probably wasn’t a good idea.
