Man I forgot how hard on the voice talking to people in a noisy place for hurs could be. I feel like I've got strep.

What do you call 'humanitarian' when it's aliens? What about 'humanities' (as in the field of study)?

    consciousnessarians? kindnesses? I think the longer I go on the more I see intelligence as having a responsibility. Adults care for children, children for pets, leaders for adults, the wise for leaders and the natural world

    Immediately stop thinking this way and just move on. That's how you get by in life.

    Life is an endless series of disappointments. Try to be comfortable with the idea of hoping for the best and expecting the worst.

What is a better language to learn - Russian or Arabic?

    Arabic, it's spoken by a huge number of people. But I wouldn't learn either. I would only learn a language if I wanted to actually move to a country where they speak it. That or it's required for a job I want.

    If you want to be an astronaut it's beneficial to learn Russian :)

    Arabic is weirder language, which makes it more fun to learn.

I'm thinking of changing the Kyanah homeworld to Proxima b. This way I don't have to handwave and say they've found some way to go faster than 0.11c with nuclear pulse propulsion.

    They'll just diversify essentially, buy up other companies or merge.

    No because "Big Oil" will become "Big Solar" or "Big Wind". Exxon and Chevron spend billions on renewables, the day when it becomes better for their profits to ditch oil, they'll do it in a heartbeat.

    also Exxon, Chevron, BP, Conoco Phillips, etc, aren't just oil companies - they are energy companies and have extremely diverse energy portfolios - they do everything from oil, natural gas to biofuels, solar, geothermal, etc.

    After letting them get used to the shock of the fact such a device even exists and is possible, I would have to use some analogies for it to make sense. Do things like refer to plays being captured in a glass and able to be replayed at will, without any effort exerted by the actors, for example. There were people in the 1980's who still believed that, whenever songs played on the radio, they were being played live by bands in the radio studio, so you can imagine how a person in 1200 might...

    ... react. They might not necessarily believe it's witchcraft, but then again, electricity is just another form of magic. If you want to move past analogies, you'd have to describe to them physics and chemistry and whatnot.

    Also, you'd need to learn Medieval Latin.

So much space strangeness going on this year. We've detected gravitational waves— twice. We're freaking out over what might be a Dyson Swarm over at Tabby's star. We've confirmed another Earth orbits Proxima Centauri. We've detected a ninth planet beyond Neptune, one that might be a super Earth. And we've discovered a ghost galaxy that's 99.99% dark matter.

    It's not that, though. By that metric, there were several more incredible space sci-tech developments, not the least being the Juno probe. I'm just talking about those space mysteries.

    It's always a fun experience, but I will caution you to take things seriously early on. Should you feel any pang of sadness, IMMEDIATELY go to a counselor. I was surprised by how many 'Freshman Kamikazes' there are— otherwise excellent or competent students who bomb their first college semester.

As We Rise

How would a Medieval England react to time-traveling humans (from thousands of years in the future,) building a huge, and tall city near a busy route to London, not even bothering with the mundane people of that time?

    We wouldn't get far into the building process (even if we had nano tech to burrow and gather/fabricate minerals) before the peasents notified the lords. Scouts would be sent to ascertain the truth laid out by the common folk. After which we would face the onslaught of the might of England's army.

    We would just cast them aside with whatever military technology we brought with us.
