    If this were april first, I'd dismiss this in the blink of an eye :confused:
    While I'm not against the idea as such, what kind of first impression about our species would this give anyone who does recieve it on the other end?

    That depends. If they are shaped like Doritos, it could pose a problem.

    Who knows, maybe it violates some Galactic ordinance on wasteful use of EM fields.

    I knew about the strawberry ice cream... As per Jimmy, let's just hope that we aren't invaded by giant Dorito creatures. That would be terrible!
