Challenge #02812-G255: You Were Warned

[translated and changed a little bit from polish movie]

A: You want to attack humans?

B: Yes, their planet has some materials that I need

A: This one will be tough. On a daily basis humans are annoying, but they love when they are under attack! I'm telling you! In the first 5 days they're all going to start a resistance movement and turn into guerrillas! -- Anon Guest

[AN: NGL I want to see a dub of that Polish movie. I lack the fortitude for subtitles, please forgive]

Of course they came without warning. They always do. Even if there's one scruffy scientist type trying to warn them and being ignored. Empirical evidence has shown that a group of scientists, a plethora of the public, and a series of catastrophic events will be ignored if there's a fast buck in maintaining ignorance.

Of course they laid devastation in their wake. Mass panic, the stock market collapsing and, of course, the deaths of many of the common public. What grabbed the headlines was the stock market. Well. For as long as there were headlines. For the invading Klutarch, it was just another Wednesday[1].

The head of this particular Klutarch expedition was named Rollyx. They made certain everyone knew this, and put out notifications about it wherever they could. That's the only reason anyone on Earth knew their name. They, too, had been warned about Human nature. The tendency to ignore a prescient warning in favour of short-term profit is seemingly universal.

Allie, chief of R&D turned to the alleged genius who was working on the project. "Thorpe... was it supposed to do that?"

Thorpe was still staring at the trail and running math on how

Challenge #00997-B266: Time to Clean the Tank

Thought you might like this one. Don't think it would fit in Amalgam-verse, though. -- RecklessPrudence

[AN: Yeah nah, it wouldn't.]

They called it the Green War. The collective nations of the Earth were fighting over, and in, the world's last forest. So of course, frequent use of napalm was de rigueur.

Elsewhere, pro-lifers were bombing fertility clinics in the mistaken belief that they also performed abortions. There were also roaming gangs of pro-lifers who

Challenge #00352: The Case For Doing Your Homework

“At last! I have - No! Oxygen, my only weakness! How did you know?”

“… Did you even look up the planet before you got here?”

Zykryxx the Conquerer looked down at the small, blue-green marble in the view screen at his feet. There was, unbelievably, cogniscent life on it. A planet with seventy percent of its surface covered with liquid water.

They were undoubtedly primitives. They were still communication on radio bands, and had only recently graduated
