Whatever doesn’t kill you-
I read every version of “Humans are space orcs” that comes across my dash
It just made me think what aliens must think of shirts and inspirational posters people have that say “Whatever doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.”
Because is there really a better way to sum up the human race as a whole?
As a species this is humanity. If it doesn’t kill us outright chances are good that we are going to adapt and survive.
So I can see the first aliens kind of laughing at this saying because we are these unarmored meatsacks that seem so terribly easily to break and yet as time goes on they realize it’s the truth
Humans see it as inspiration
Aliens see it as a warning
Of course this is funnier when you add in some of the spoof variations
“Whatever doesn’t kill me just pisses me off.”
“Whatever doesn’t kill you disappoints me.”
“Whatever doesn’t kill me better fucking run.”
“Whatever doesn’t kill me makes me weirder.”
of course humans are totally oblivious to this and can’t figure out why everyone gets so damn jumpy once they get released from the medbay after being injured.
