Some of you undoubtedly went into work — and some of you went back to work, and the prospect of teaching. Others went off to code databases, study law or just maintain networks somewhere. There may have even been some random writing of articles going on, although I wouldn’t know anything about that.

Thankfully, the Earth was saved by a small belligerent toddler, who quickly saw the alien menace off by smashing it into the table.
