Nice summary of the problem.

I hope there's more intelligent life than us as the thought that freaking humans are the most advanced species in the Universe is depressing.

We are such a terrible flawed creation. Sure something better could exist.

I'm sure architecture after the discovery of reinforced concrete is the Great Filter. Leads technologically advanced civilizations into collective suicide.

There are multiple great filters, and we are among the most advanced societies in the galaxy. I would theorize that there are no more than 100 "advanced" civilizations in the galaxy. Though many planets probably contain life of some sort.

The irresistible competitive urge to pick arbitrary teams and kill each other even when there isn't a shortage of resources?

Koshko

That's a good start.

CG has certainly advanced beyond caring about... Well, much of anything. ;)

I don't care where them idiots are. Don't we have enough weirdos here already? Look at all the nerd stuff posted here. That's scary enough. I don't need no blobb-like hippies or six legged fascists.

I look forward to the day when we are all killed by aliens.

I'd like to think we'd kill ourselves. Why outsource it?

Funko

We're already making the planet uninhabitable for ourselves. Humans 1 - 0 Aliens

We'll have done well if we leave behind a child race of fully autonomous, self-replicating chimpcopters.

I'd be happy with with a universe where everyone has boobs. Would make a nice change. And would be good for some laughs.

Us American lardasses are working on it.
