What borked dataset will be use to identify any aliens we meet? I expect the usual one over filled with caucasians won't cut the mustard in that scenario. Telling the aliens they all look the same to us probably won't go down any better than when we used it on Indians or Chinese. Though my wife works with a guy she says is a dead ringer for Pooh Bear.
Oh dear I hope El Reg's distribution in the People's Republic won't be affected.
