Blog in Space again.

Desta vez eu recebi instruções específicas da Blog in Space para o caso de encontrar com meus amiguinhos verdes:
The Blog in Space team has received a number of inquiries this month on generally practiced contact protocol. While Blog in Space offers no "official" rules per say, we endorse the following steps.
  • If they ask to be taken to your leader, contact the White House immediately. If you can't get through to the President, ask for the Vice President and follow the line of succession from there.
  • Practice Active listening. Taking an interest in what the extraterrestrials are saying builds trust and provides foundation for future contact.
  • Strike a common bond. For instance, you might ask if he/she/it has an active interest in stamp collecting or wiffle ball.
  • Don't come on too strong. Nothing is more unattractive to alien life forms than a needy Earthling.
  • It's okay not to comment. While the Blog In Space team is pro-alien (and always will be), it would be ignorant to assume there aren't a few bad apples in the universe. If you are questioned about Earth's solar defenses or nuclear technology, we recommend you change the subject.
Bárbaro mesmo são as instruções sobre como começar um papo (pergunte se ele/ela/isso tem um interesse em coleções de selos) e a recomendação de não pegar pesado, pois não há nada menos atraente ou interessante do que um humanóide necessitado.
