Humans Get Even Weirder (fiction edition)
To add to the growing list on @space-australians …
Humans are WEIRD!
Humans can form an emotional bond with anything. ANYTHING. We’re weird. Try explaining to an alien culture crying over a fictional character or having a Book Boyfriend.
Other species bond, and can bond with individuals of another species (my dog loves me). But humans are the only species we know that can get emotionally attached to something or someone they know doesn’t exist.
Imagine a human breaking down into tears over their favorite movie and the aliens trying to understand.
Alien: But, you said this individual does not exist?
Human: Yes! *sobbing*
Alien: But you are crying.
Human: Didn’t you see him die?!?!
Alien: But he isn’t real. The actor stood up again. We watched the bonus scene.
Human: BUT I LOVE HIM!!!!!
