OMG—and I never say “OMG.” Did anyone else (besides the mod who deleted the post) see the spam by the guy who wrote a book called Extraterrestrials? Just for kicks I read the description on Amazon. Check it out:

The universe is vast. The existence of extraterrestrial life is nearly certain when one considers the size of the cosmos. But what would these alien life forms really be like from a scientific perspective?

Dookdook is a member of the Dooda species, a Type 2 extraterrestrial civilization based entirely on the pursuit of scientific advancement. Like other members of his race, he cannot understand the concepts of war, honor and bravery. However, when his star system is attacked by a predatory alien species known as the Grubboxes, he realizes the importance of combat and fighting for what he believes in. But can he convince his species to do the same? Can theoretical physics really dominate experimental physics?

Delve into a place where none of the aliens look or act like humans. Discover what it truly means to be an extraterrestrial.

What a brilliant plot. And the names he chooses… Dookdook? Dooda species? Grubboxes? Are you freakin’ kidding me?  LOL
