Another one of those “humans are weird and scary” posts.
The fact that people will climb on mountains or tall places. For fun. Like, extreme parkour or extreme selfie taking? (You know, where people will go on one of the tallest buildings in a city and go to the very tippy top to hold out a selfie stick?)
Aliens would be so freaked out by this. Imagine, you’re an alien and you happen to hear two of your human companions talking about stuff they do to entertain themselves.
Human 1: *laughs* yeah, man, this one time I climbed to the top of a crane that was working on a building. Nearly fell off too.
Alien: Y-you mean to say that you willingly put yourself in danger?
Human 2: Yeah! It gets the adrenaline rushing, gives you a thrill. Almost like a high! Ha! See what I did there?
Alien: Yes, Brad, but why would you think that’s a good idea?! Your bodies are not meant to sustain falls from large distances!
Human 1: Oh, yeah, tons of people have died doing that stuff. Parkour is pretty dang scary. But that’s what makes it so fun!
Alien: YOU THINK IT’S FUN!?
