In our constant search for news of extraterrestrial life, we came across the following question at Answers.com, which appeared to be a desperate attempt to communicate:

What Science fiction book Aliens invade destroying human population Group of humans discover an underground race with a weapon that can defeat the aliens?

I'm not sure what's scarier: that question, or the answer that someone else posted:
