    Seriously though, we're supposed to have a chance against an advanced civilization that's mastered space travel?

    That's unpossible!

    It's a perfectly cromulent idea.

    Would be even worse than when Columbus discovered the Indians. Would be game over. Also people would freak as religion would have been proven to have been bullshit

    Exactly. It would probably be more like a fully modernized military (complete with a nuclear arsenal) going up against Stone Age Indians. Their arrows and spears aren't going to do much against a squadron of bombers or Abrams tanks.

    They'll have Norton but will be foiled once again when the white house steals the aliens identity and ruins their galactic credit rating. They should have had identity guard!

    It won't be Norton, it will be the free version of AVG which leads to our downfall.

    Chances of Aliens beating Humans in the short term are exceedingly high, chances of Aliens beating Humans over the long run are exceedingly low. The track record for invading Armies beating an entrenched people fighting a guerilla war, own their own turf, isn't great because simple explosives can go a long way. Plus, however many of them there are, they are a limited quantity. We can breed them out, every woman would either need to be fighting with the men or pregnant having as many babies as possible. However, as it's portrayed in both "Independence Day" movies, fighting conventionally with fighter jets and shit, we would get our asses handed to us easily.

    That's a good point, but, if I remember correctly, the aliens in the original movie seemed more like an eradication force. If they intend to blast humans into extinction, they should easily possess the technology to do it.

    Space travel and/or invading another planet would not be economical.

    We'll have Kaspersky. The commies come through, in an unexpected twist.

    Relax, no one is eradicating anyone. these movies are just more dystopian propaganda put out to scare so you will accept the fake "nice" aliens they eventually trot out as our outer space saviors. :bigwave:

    I loved how the first one stereotyped the fuck out of everybody.

    Americans enter the space station. John Brody is clutching a tattered flag. A Russian greets them, he is wearing a ushanka and clutching a bottle of Vodka. Dennis, the gay American, is wearing a black fedora, a scarf, John Varvatos skinny jeans, and a full head of curly ringlets.
