Video: "District 9" Director Talks Aliens and Future of Human Race Posted: February 4th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
In November, "District 9" director Neill Blomkamp was invited to be part of the TEDx conference in Vancouver. He wasn't able to appear in person, but instead recorded a video regarding his thoughts on aliens and the future of humankind. Blomkamp first makes it very clear that he's not a scientist, but is just someone who is interested in the topic. He then explains that if real aliens exist, they probably don't look anything like they do in "District 9." That all followed by a deep insight into why he believes we have yet to find life on other planets and what the human race has to do to truly advance. Check out the full 13-minute video below. I hope that Blomkamp is just reading a prepared speech, otherwise there is a career waiting for him at NASA if filmmaking doesn't work out.

Cool sh*t. TED talks are awesome, I watched one on fungus that blew my mind.
If we were looking for a Dyson Sphere, how the hell would we ever find it? There'd be no light projected from the star...
Also, this is assuming the universe has the properties scientists assume it has, because really we don't know sh*t. We could still be having an 'earth is flat' moment.
What we really need is to force all scientists to smoke DMT.

"smoking DMT has no lasting effects"
- Unless you're smoking by the edge of a cliff.
