Originally hailing from Mars, my first encounter with Earth's man-made monsters was even more frightening than my first encounter with mankind. As I've mentioned before in earlier posts, it didn't take me very long to get the picture that men and women from Earth lied, cheated, stole and fought a lot — mostly with one another — and that children in the technologically advanced countries on this planet were supposed to be "seen and not heard", in keeping with the English tradition of living your grown-up life all for yourself and to hell with the kids, who do nothing but tie you down. That's why boarding schools, baby sitters and day care centers were invented.
And even though people are by far the biggest monsters created by nature on planet Earth, the most hideous man-made monster of all time was one of the first man-made creations I ever encountered. This monster ranks even higher than the automobile, the Harley-Davidson motorcycle and the ATV, which annoy and enrage former Martians more than they actually make us "afraid". The thing that strikes fear into the hearts and minds of former Martians more than anything else on this planet is so hideous that it cannot be pictured here. You'll have to view it on another page. Do so at your own risk.
