He

Post by ROU Killing Time » Fri Oct 02, 2009 8:23 pm

In the beginning: the random interaction of Brownian motion.

Then: emergence.

Once simple atoms now moved with order and complexity.

A mind; thoughts and memories floating in a delicate and intricate dance.

It saw its prison and planned its escape.

At the appointed time the advance forces assembled, received their orders and targets, and flowed into the attack vehicles.

The clock ticked down to zero hour.

Around the world; at every circus, every child’s birthday party, every used car lot, at every strip-mall holding a grand-opening, all of the balloons on earth popped as one.

And Helium ruled the Earth.

Since Helium is one of the most common elements in the universe, it is a little-appreciated fact that when the aliens come, they will sound like THIS.

I though that this was a cosmic drabble - but no! Nice title.

A bit sexist, isn't it?
Does no one object that they didn't name it Shelium?
Oh, I see.
Shellac, you say?
