Inter-stellar invitation Earth Date: March, 2096 Dear President of Earth Greetings. We, the Milkyfed, are delighted to invite 5 Earth children to a training school in the centre of the Milky Way. The training will prepare participants for a vital mission that is too dangerous and too secret for us to divulge. At the end of this training, a final group of 5 people - of differing species - will be selected for the mission. Children rather than adults are required for 2 reasons: 1. Everyone will have to be rigorously trained and children are better at learning and adapting to new things than adults. 2. Adults can be more disagreeable. Yours expectantly, Lord Beardedmoustachedwiseface-oh
