Adaptation

Stories like this one get me all excited.

Yes, we were made on (and for) Earth. That much seems pretty clear. But for those of you who believe strongly that we will soon have to evacuate the mother planet, it would appear that there's hope: we humans have the ability to adapt to extraterrestrial environments.

And to all those who would say, "If God meant us to fly, He would have given us wings," I just want to say this: maybe He did (in a way). Who knows? On another planet, in another atmosphere, we may have the ability to run faster, sleep less, fly, hold our breaths for inordinate periods of time . . . maybe even walk on water. We won't know until we've gone where no man has gone before.

i've been there (other planets) - it's true - you can do more there than you realize - you have no need here for some things that you are capable of there, it's neat, really. they also have fruits and vegetables that we don't have here - i mean, some of them are similar, but a lot are really more colorful and some are even polka dotted.

I didn't want to say anything about it, but I could kinda' tell that you had visited outer space . . . there's just something extraterrestrial about you. I love aliens.
