What If Earth Is Reality TV?

With all the reality TV garbage out there that seem to amuse the masses for reasons totally beyond me. Okay, not totally beyond me, but I have to remain pg here, what if we are the cosmos reality TV?

That could be why aliens leave us alone. If there are advanced ones out there that is. They have all the technology and resources they need. They don’t need to waste their time conquering us, so instead they waste their time watching us.

They could piggyback on our weak technology and see into our cameras, webcams, use our satellites, etc. and just watch in their down time. Even advanced species need to cure boredom at some point I’m guessing.

Earth could be The Truman Show of the universe. There is little way out and we keep doing stupid things that advanced species would probably find funny in a really lame way. Earth could be a ratings goldmine for any channels out there or alien connections or whatever they call them.

Then for “special” episodes they screw with humans and watch the nuts come out of the woodwork by placing objects into our view, like UFOs and crop circles. Abduct a person here, abduct a person there and then bring them back later like a soap opera. Throw in some cliffhangers like people trying to figure out Atlantis and other such myths and they have themselves a fun show to watch whenever they like.

Would you be happy to star in a Reality TV show for advanced aliens? Do you think they’d roll their eyes, if they have eyes, and turn us off like any sane person does to any of those washed up celebrity Reality TV shows? I bet if they watched for too long they wouldn’t be so advanced anymore.

Enjoy life, forget the strife.

No TV for me, and after reading things like this, I’m always so glad I don’t partake.

I can think of a few people they probably dropped into the mix just to make it interesting…

    Yeah, there are a few that could have been added

This made me hum a few bars of “I always feel like somebody’s watching me!” Remember that one? This sounds like a great idea for a new Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy-type book.

    haha haven’t heard that one in a while. Yeah, it would make a neat idea for a book.
