There is an alien race observing earth. They are trying to determine if there are intelligent, self aware life forms on earth. They gain access to our Internet and stumble upon cafemom first. By reading what is being posted today, what do you think their initial impression of humanity would be?

True. I, personally, am making the assumption that if they are able to travel through spacetime to earth from even a nearby star system, that they will have a much more advanced understanding of the size and scope of the universe than the average human. I am also assuming that this knowledge will birth a society more like what you see on Star Trek...

Quoting Cymbeline:

I would imagine that we would be perceived as petty and ridiculous.

That is, of course, assuming that aliens possessed more depth and an inherent disdain for trivial matters.

Quoting Miss-Fortune:

I agree with all three of you. I was hoping for more in depth analysis though.... if anyone wants to take a stab at it.

It is interesting to think how we would be percieved by someone not raised with us...

One would think so, but, our assumptions could be wrong. They could be as shallow and materialistic as the citizens of the Capital in The Hunger Games.

I do like to think you're right, though.

Yeah, I am making a lot of assumptions... this is clearly not going to be my doctoral thesis... lol

I just thought it would be an interesting topic of conversation... sadly very few of us agree... =)
