Why is ‘Dark’ spelled with a k and not a c? Because you can’t see in the dark.

Time to tell a story of a far off planet some time in the future.  Why in the future?  Because we have no way to travel interstellar distances quickly.

After all, there is no intelligent life out there, and sometimes, I wonder if there is any here.

I guess I have to stop watching Science Fiction, huh?

An astronaut is the first to step onto an alien planet.

An astronaut is the first to step onto an alien planet. The alien's are so excited that they change all their signs to English, and even rename some of their places and landmarks after Human places and landmarks and things.

The astronaut decides the first place he wants to go is a pub. He sees a nearby alien and asks, "where's the pub?"

The alien gurgles back but his suit translates to the astronaut in real time. The alien says, "just around the corner!"

The astronaut heads around the corner and sees it! It's labelled "The Keyboard" and he asks the bouncer, "Why is it called the Keyboard?"

The bouncer replies, "the boss loves all things human and changed his name to reflect that. Ask him, he's the bartender."

So the astronaut enters the Keyboard and goes to the bartender.

"Excuse me, do you own this pub?" The astronaut says.

"I do." The bartender gurgles back.

"Why is it called the Keyboard?" The man asks.

"Well," the alien gurgles in reply, "since I knew you humans were coming I updated the name!"

The astronaut is on the edge of his seat...

"The reason it's called the Keyboard is because... it's a space bar."
