War. War never changes. And neither does introducing a new brand of killer into that war, the likes of which few have ever seen. In the ongoing war between the Alliance and the NEB on planet Sirius 6B, self replicating, buzzsaw wielding robots who burrow underground were brought in to help sway the conflict to the Alliance’s favor. They were able to keep them at bay by wearing secret decoder bracelets that identify them as Alliance members. Remove that bracelet, and you’re gonna be able to scratch your own balls with the back of your head once it falls off into your lap.

I also thought it would be really cool to travel through space, seeing the moon and those stars up close. Now that I’m grown up, I know that my chance to be an astronaut, or even a space traveller have probably passed. I’m glad that I came to that realization as a result, because if I would have known as a child that travelling in outer space, and especially gazing at the sun through the rings of Saturn would have turned me into an eventual pile of mush, like in William Sachs‘ 1977 film The Incredible Melting Man, I would have been absolutely devastated… devastated, I say.
