Who will save us from the onslaught of the flying saucers?
True, we don’t have any evidence of life on other planets, and if it’s there, we don’t even know whether extraterrestrial beings want to come to Earth and eat our brains. But my extensive viewing of old Twilight Zone and Outer Limits episodes, combined with careful study of Marvel comics from the Jack Kirby/Steve Ditko/Stan Lee era, indicates that we should at least be prepared. You don’t think the FBI will come to our rescue, do you? The X-Files is merely a naïve fantasy: In real life, Fox Mulder would be providing diagrams on the tastiest ways to prepare the medulla oblongata.
