Do you think "wrong planet" is a wise name to be used? Could you think of a better place to live in? Would you prefer to live among people who are all Aspies rather than NTs?

Well, for me it's about existing in the wrong place, at the wrong time, with the wrong people, doing the wrong job, etc. Why wouldn't it be the "Wrong Planet?" WP makes perfect sense to me.

If I had landed here about 10,000 years ago or maybe further back, I'm sure I'd have felt like I was definitely in the right place. But, the world has been altered a lot since then, so it's really not the same anymore. Right planet, wrong time, maybe.

The name, WrongPlanet makes perfect sense to me. Don't I remember you from months back?

Nothing wrong with the planet. It's just those inhabitants. Most of them are acting in very strange ways.

This planet's too awesome to be the wrong one. I think we have a bunch of alien inhabitants who have taken over our perfect systems, screwing them up. Now we're out of money, all kids care about is social interaction, and important things are put aside for smaller things. Why did we let those guys come here in the first place is what I wanna know. :roll:

Well, there might be some truth to this. Think about it. In the days of the caveman, AS traits would have benefited survival. NT traits benefit reproduction, and that's why we're overrun with NTs now. :lol:
