    I liked that a lot. I`ve got a couple of star war books somewhere written by the same guy, Terry Bisson but I was given them and haven`t read them. I think I`ll put them on my to read list now cause I really enjoyed that little scene.

    Where have I read that before? I`m not calling "repost" (I don`t mind reposts anyway), but it`s weird to see something that I swear I read at the dawn of the internet back when we had computers at college specifically to do text emails.

    This makes me hungry. But for ice cream, oddly enough.

    I recall a "Golden Age" short story where metal-based life forms avoid Earth because: there`s water (H2O!!) everywhere! NO chance of intelligent life THERE they conclude :-)
    Similar sort of conversation, only those aliens never detect us.

    Most of our attempts to communicate with extraterrestrial life is based on hydrogen... Oh well, we are just ugly bags of mostly water...

    They forgot to add war-mongering, self-destructive meat.

    I rather enjoyed reading this again.

    patchouly-Who wrote this?
    Terry Bisson. I first read it in on of The Year`s Best Science Fiction collections (or possibly in one of Asimov`s anthologies)

    If you like that, I`d suggest any collection of short stories by Larry Niven. (His `N-Space` has both short stories and anecdotes).

    @MeGrendel: I`ve read a ton of Asimov`s stuff but will certainly check out Larry Niven.

    Check out Niven and Pohl`s "The Space Merchants", you will not be disappointed.

    Great Book, but it was Pohl and Kornbluth.

    Now, if you want a GREAT book by Niven, Jerry Pournelle & Steven Barnes, `The Legacy of Heorot` is a must read.
