The Fermi Paradox Is Our Business Model

The Fermi Paradox Is Our Business Model - Chris Buzelli A fun short story built atop an interesting premise. Like most good short stories you wish it went on a little longer, and I hope Anders decides to work in this universe a little longer. The idea is this: aliens have seeded the universe with humans, who then proceed to gain civilization, mine rare metals, create radioactive materials, and then blow themselves up, leaving all the raw materials behind for easy removal.The aliens are amoral (like a corporation), only in this case, a few humans survived and even prospered, leaving the aliens to wonder what's next.
