“Well…you wouldn’t believe me if I told you, but I might as well tell you so that you won’t make a big fuss over it. When you turned around and had your back to me, I was actually teleported into the future where humans were on the endangered-species list and aliens became rulers of Earth. Apparently they crashed landed on Earth in 2012, and they found that picture of where humans were endlessly slaughtering animals. Turns out aliens are animal lovers, and when they saw that picture, they were furious and instead of returning to their home planet like they planned to, they decided to make the human species pay for their cruelty. It was only natural that once I got back-which, by the way, was only seconds after I left-that I HAD to destroy the picture. Now you must excuse me, for I must have some fresh air to clear my head of all that I have learned of the future.” –Maranda Brock
