SMART (any gender, late teens on up)
There’s no contest with brain power, I know that. Your race has twice the brain size as ours and you use the full two hundred percent, I get it. You can go ahead and send the rest of your crew down here and you guys might be able to outsmart us, but I don’t think that’s what you want.
I think that’s how you got into trouble in the first place; why you’re trying to set up camp on Earth. You outsmarted your environment to death and you want to go somewhere that still has a bit of ecosystem on it.
You see, that’s where you can learn from us. You’re gonna see that we are trying to kick the environment’s ass... we are doing everything and I mean everything to kill but but we never quite do it and you know why? Because we’re not. Smart. Enough. There’s too many things we don’t know how to do. So we don’t do them.
And it’s what we don’t do that keeps this planet going. Surrender now and we will teach you to fail.
