Congratulations. That's the first SMBC you've posted that was even slightly funny.

I've got an affinity for the Early Birds theory, even though that's kind of a disappointing one. It's my hunch.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

The problem is that we're searching for intelligence when we don't even have any of our own.

I like all of them except 'the rare earth' and 'the great silence'. they're both silly, imo

I like best "in a galaxy far far away" but I would add 'a long long time ago', We've only been [radio] visible for 125 years and are becoming less visible every year. So unless that ET is within that tiny, tiny 150 ly sphere, ET can't 'see' us. And even they could -- like though other means of detection -- it will be another ly sphere before they could respond. AND, I suspect SETI has exhausted the possibility of 'a close one'.
