Due to the limitations of early Krakau translation software, the first words broadcast to humanity by another sentient species, in Earth Year 2153 and at a volume of 104 decibels, were:
“We come in harmony to defenestrate your dingo.” – Terminal Alliance, Jim C. Hines.
Defenestration is an act with a very long history, intimately intertwined with politics, and more than once, the start of a war.
