Alien-A-Day #49—Humans. A carbon-based bipedal life form from the planet Earth (or Terra, or Sol-3, or “Not THERE Again”, depending on where you bought your map). Humans are relatively average in size—not the tallest beings in the galaxy and certainly not the smallest. The have a tendency to see themselves as more important than they actually are, and, despite having relatively large brains, most of their energy seems to be directed to their equally large mouths. They are a race of artists, poets, and great inventors.  They also thrive on conflict, and when there is none, they seemingly manufacture it out of nothing and in large quantities. But in those rare times that they do set aside their selfishness, they have heart that is unequaled.
