Why we haven't been contracted by the aliens.

1. We can't even build a wall around Mexico.

2. We can't get the Chinese to pay for that wall.

3. It's a stupid idea anyway.

4. This place just flat-out scares them.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Human slave labour just isn't competitive.
If we want to serve our Martian Overlords and survive, we should consider becoming a hive mind of worker drones.
I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.
