Well duh. Considering the range of species on that rig and what a minority the humans are, most of that stuff is going to be indigestible at best, instant death at worst.
Indigestible at best.
Instant death as middle.
Two weeks of unspeakable intestinal pain as your guts melt followed by death at worst.
I stand corrected!
Whee! Sounds like fun!!
[Not-ta' mention rather messy....]
I think “worst” is that it reproduces via mammilian digestive systems. Just like those warnings you get as a kid to not eat watermelon seeds
Or mushroom spores……*Bleah*
I don’t know about that alien fruit, but yer’ non de plume is certainly unappetizing–
Om nom nom. Almost. XP
Human Filth! Eat the bad fruit! Enjoy your hideous death, filthy earth dirt child.
[I think someone went off their meds, again.....]
Best not get sidetracked from vacating the premises anyway
Yeah! I mean it’s only been what–WEEKS now–since they heard they were running outta’ air!?
[Time is Relative]
That’s only in story. Not how often it updates.
Ohm Nhom Nom. Delicious toxins. Instant death… This is sounding like the into to a crime show.
Yeah, aren’t they trying to get to the escape pods before the guards get away with them all? I don’t think I’d be stopping to have a snack or poke at strange fruit with a stick.
Lol– maybe not a snack– but every real man knows you have to stop to poke the strange thing with a stick.
But I wanted to see Baldy get his hand bit off!
Using a stick is so anticlimactic]
Nice rack on that real man there
Does “Humans do not eat!” mean “Poisonous to humans” or “Not allowed for workers”?
Perhaps the result of poke-it-with-a-stick will clear the ambiguity.
Or just get them into worse trouble….
maybe they are eggs of one of the other aliens
WE’ve already established that they are fed a small selection of foods, mostly alien hybrids. If you haven’t already eaten it in the cafeteria, it’s prolly poisonous guys.
also: If you thought they were going to vent the air, and you couldn’t get to an escape ship, Sealing off the “giant garden” section of the prison and hoping the plant produce enough oxygen to keep you alive is a reasonable backup plan.
Not a bad thought–Provided the vegetation ISN’T carnivorous…..
Which brings me back to a frequent thought I have during every human-eating monster/alien movie I’ve ever seen–
WHY do they wanna’ eat us, anyway?
I mean, it’s not as if we’re the “natural” prey of any critter here on Earth [not anymore, at least--even sharks usually bite us by mistake], so why would something born on another planet even find us digestible?
Wouldn’t it be slightly more realistic if the alien beastie stopped and spit one of us out after taking a chomp, and said–
“BLECK! That was AWFUL!! I’m never gonna’ eat HERE, again!!!”
But maybe that’s just me…..*shrug*
No, I agree with you. I actually read a book where the local carnivorous life forms would get a week of diarrhea from eating us. “It’s not exactly revenge, but it helps.”
Montezuma’s Revenge Redux!
Of course, if it happens that we humans taste soewhat like pork (rather than chicken), I might just be able to understand the attraction……Such
as it is
But then, there’s all those NASTY diseases an alien could get from eating one of us undercooked, too
Perhaps humans are better in one respect to all else- the only species to be palatable to every carnivorous life form out there.
Not quite the human supremacy Mr Beardy racist is looking for- but hey…
And that WOULD explain a few things, Yes…..
God’s Personal Joke on the Human Race, so to speak–*wink,wink*
I can’t wait until humans take over the universe. ^.~ desu desu
why are they wasting their time. go to the shutles now!
porque pierden el tiempo. vayan a las naves ahora!
