There is an interesting book series by Harry Turtledove about alien lizard people that come to invade Earth. We turn out to be the first warm-blooded race they had encountered. Their spy probes found us during the dark ages, but by the time they get here, it's the middle of WWII. Fun books.

It is possible that there are some Hispanic IABers who might enjoy a short film of a classic story and would enjoy it in their native language. NOT ALL IAB have english as their Main language

Stupidest thing I've read on IAB. You should post this on LL for the rest of the non-English-speaking mouth-breathers.

Ray Bradbury's "The Cement Mixer" was a great short Story (Martian Chronicles) about an Invasion that was defeated by Human Kindness without a shot fired. Killed by the Humans "Glad Hand"

There was a story I read a long time ago about Humans visited a planet whose life forms were all blind with a interlinked hive mind and tries to assimulate the earth as an act of kindness.

"We can recover from a broken leg"

Yeah, with x-rays, hospitals, casts and painkillers.

The reason the primate's light sensitive Pineal gland has not developed into a fully functional eye is still up for discussion, whereas in more advanced life forms of certain shrimp, crustacean and mollusk, this gland has fully developed providing better light absorption and better spatial differentiation

Danger - Human! A short story by Gordon R Dickson.
Essentially: All intelligent life in the Galaxy avoids Earth because of an ancient sign which reads: Danger! Human! Excellent story!

There's been lots of short stories where humans turn out to be more dangerous than the 'alien invaders' expected

And we have only two eyes cause we don't need any more of those easily infected, very fragile sacks of liquid and those two we need, are close to brain and quite well protected. There are good arguments that we are going to get wider and larger eyes in the long run, don't know about that...

ZigRat: physics. Two of each on our sides balances each other perfectly. Two eyes have depth perception, two ears can decode direction and distance from sound. And last but not least: cell division and symmetry, which is more a geometry thing. When cells divide in two from the get go, that kind of makes even number shapes more common.

And why is everything about humans seems to be in twos, they have 2 legs, 2 arms and only 2 eyes?
