Heat Waves and Alien Invasions
It's been really hot lately, but if you only listened to the news and didn't know it was hot, it would be easy to think that we'd been invaded by aliens. The media is freaking out. They tell you to 'stay inside if at all possible,' and 'lie down on the floor where it's cooler.' They also say to 'drink plenty of water,' though I guess that last one makes less sense regarding an alien invasion. It makes me wonder how the media will react if there ever is an actual alien invasion for them to cover. I'm not sure that we'd find out since they'd likely work themselves into such a fit, that they would be among the first casualties of the invasion.
