Lol... a 100 meter telescope will be designed by the European Southern Observatory. It will be called the OWL (OverWhelmingly Large telescope).

If they just happened to be 65 million light years away, they may have a snapshot of a Tyrannosaurus Rex getting blown off its feet by the asteroid.

I would hope they don't have a telescope powerful enough to see my neighbor follow his dog around the yard carring a scoup and a plastic bag - they might get the wrong idea.




I'm afraid what they might think if they see certain humans naked; the kind you usually don't see in certain magazines.

They'd either A: laugh themselves sick ("Hey, Gweeb, check this one out! ") or B: point a gamma-ray burster at Earth and FZZZZT!!!
