Here's something for those of you fixated on the Alien Language.

In the opening theme I've seen 2 A.L sightings and 1 disputable one.

The first one is the very well known sighting, the yellow sign with three words.

The second is a purple floating sign that appears for a whopping total of TWO FRAMES that comes up when the camera motions off of the first transport tube, so start frame-by-frame advance before it does and you should be able to see it, it has two words and seems to consist of both languages used in the show, I've only half decrypted this one.

The third is disputable as my freeze-frame doesn't really give me a clear picture of this.  But after the PE Ship flies in towards the city a taxi flies by quickly, it's sign (on the top) appears to have the symbols on it but I'm not sure, comments would be helpful.
-----------
SPOILER

The well known yellow sign says the following:

TASTY
HUMAN
BURGERS

Many of you might have already known this but just to help people not quite there yet.

I had jello today.

The red sign is written in the normal Alien Language:
"2D Rulez"

- The AL Master strikes again -

Yeah I've known that for some time now, just too lazy to get around and edit this old retired topic.

Nobody ever translated the taxi?
I looked at it with my best quality movie, and all i can tell is that it has 3 words, 2 letters, 1 letter, 4 letters.

Where did you get that from, Snake? 'Cause if it's off one of the DVDs, just go to the Infosphere. wink

If it's for the miracle cream in Less than Hero, here is the translation:

Translation: Keep out of reach of children under the age of five
hundred. For best results, sacrifice a small mammal xanroc, then
apply evenly to interior of eyeball. Would you like to sell Dr. FlimFlam products? Contact a representative at a covered wagon near you.

I am going to merge these posts with the appropriate thread, give me a few moments.

He misspelled Sightings as Sitings. It was bugging the frak out of me.

Perhaps he originally intended to use the term Sitings for whatever nefarious purposes that he at the time.  Arguably the entire meaning of the piece may have been completely altered by what appeared to be a spelling or typographical error.  Perhaps we may never know.
