It is indeed somehow sad to think that the disc that the Voyager is
carrying is analog, to be read by a stylus, but the NASA engineers didn't
include a turntable upon which to play it!

Heavens above!! Who knows, the little green people may use it for wrap,
or worse read it backwards (from the center like a CD!), or at the wrong
speed? Will they pick up Satanic messages? Will they be informed to
destroy earthbound humanity with their green death-ray? or worse! shake
the planet with the voice of Celine Dion.

Brothers, Sisters, those of you who read and understand this, repent NOW,
while you still have time.

This message of cosmic hope brought to you by ...
