The message

- Sir, we received a message from outerspace.
- What does it say?
- Well, it took us some time to transliterate, but it goes something like this:
This is the way of all intelligent species: Discovery of stone weapons. Discovery of iron weapons. Discovery of fire weapons. Discovery of radiowaves (and possibility to receive this message). Discovery of atomic weapons. Discovery of Q-weapons. Selfdestruction. Urgent warning: Do not try to invent Q-weapons.

- Q-weapons? the president asked.
- Yes sir.
- What are they?
- We don't know, sir.
Silence.
- Do you think the russians have them?
- Sir, the message says...
- God, imagine what happens if they have them before we do.
- But sir, the message...

- Are you listening to me?
