"Civilization is the distance that man has placed between himself and his own excreta"

At Least, that's what Master Space Explorer Ainson thought! That was before man stumbled unexpectendly on an alien race. They looked at it rather differently. They beleived that civilization was the proximity of man to his own excreta.

It was Strange. Man could never communicate with the aliens. Yet, somehow, their ideas communicated themselves only to easily. In no time at all, Earth was devastated by a terrible conflict!
