Signs, Signs, Everywhere is Signs
OK, something has been bugging me lately. You know that movie Signs with Mel Gibson? If you don't, don't read this, I'm about to ruin the ending for you.
The aliens hate water, right? My brother brought up an interesting point: why did they travel to a planet mostly covered by water, then? But we explained that away by, "maybe they had no choice."
But now I've thought of something else. Getting water spilled on their skin burns, right? But THERE'S MOISTURE IN THE AIR. Just walking around, their skin would begin to slowly boil off, wouldn't it? I mean, I know they picked dry climates, but come on, you mean to tell me there's absolutely no moisture in the air in Pennsylvania? None?
