The tour group stared at the ruins as their guide telepathically explained its mysterious history. “We believe this structure, called a parking garage, was erected over 2000 years ago. It housed motorized transporters called automobiles. Any questions?”
“Is it true automobiles consumed gasoline?” asked an adolescent.
“Yes, but the oil reserves were depleted in the year 2049, shortly before the Occupation,” replied the tour guide.
An adult asked, “What do the hieroglyphics mean?”
“Historians have translated them to mean, ‘Do not invade.’ Perhaps a plea for us to leave their planet. As we all know, humans weren’t the fittest species.”
