Here’s my post for Manic Monday – song title Manic Monday
The movie, Independence Day, is a favorite of mine to watch each 4th of July. It stars Will Smith, Harry Connick Jr., Jeff Goldblum, and Judd Hirsch to name a few. There are so many great characters that the actors gel perfectly. Since we’ve seen it several times, we tend to now pick up on things in the background and such.
We make more comments, and ask each other more questions… for instance – what would you do if you got up for work, to find huge space ships strategically placed all over the world? Would you run, or stay put and maybe post a blog about it? Cuz really, where are you going to go? The space ships are all over the world. Would you be the one on top of the building with Welcome signs? Either way, it would be a manic Monday, that’s for sure.
According to what we see on the movie, this is what will happen upon discovering ships overhead:
I don’t think I’ll do this, but apparently, lots of people will throw paper up in the air. Whatever is in the hand will be dropped and scattered across the floor the desk. And if nothing was in your hands, then you will quickly sweep said hand across the desk to swoop all the papers onto the floor to make it look like you were holding something. Because all of a sudden, there will be litter everywhere! Typically, when I’m scared, I freeze and tense up – so if I’m holding something, you probably won’t be able to pry that sucker from my hands – but all of YOU, apparently, are going to be doing this to display your panic. (Bunch of litterers!)
Then after littering is done, you will all pack your bags and get in the car. Leaving half the bags on the side of the road. No one will know the destination, but know you need to get there (and fast)…probably to the next space ship blast zone…but instead, you will be sitting in traffic- stopped – not going anywhere. It would be faster to walk, but you won’t think of this unless a fire inferno is heading your way.
Those that came to that conclusion of what’s the point, will remain working and muttering: “Who cares there’s a damn space ship over our building…someone has to put all that filing away that people scattered to the ground. Bunch of litterers.”
OR…they will be making a sign with glitter and pom-pom balls to Welcome the creatures. **In the movie, both those people die, but what if the real Aliens mean us no harm? Then again, what if they are like Gallaxhar, in Monsters vs. Aliens where they can’t make up their mind:
“We come in peace. We mean you no harm…and you all shall die.”
Again, I say, what would you do?
