Think jetting across the vast expanse of space is something you’ll never have to worry about? Well, you’re probably right. But in case Elon Musk has something up his sleeve that we don’t know about, you should still read this crucial primer featuring Futurama and the new series Jeff & Some Aliens (shown here in its original TripTank shorts). Bon voyage.
DO: USE PROTECTION WHEN HAVING WILD ALIEN SEX
Learn from Jeff’s mistake. Failure to observe this rule could put a serious damper on your space-cation — or land you in an extraterrestrial work camp.
DON’T: FALL FOR SHAPE-SHIFTING ALIEN MONSTERS
This is really basic stuff, folks. If your ship gets infiltrated by a grotesque monster that can assume anyone’s form, your best bet is to find somewhere to be alone. You wouldn’t want a Professor Farnsworth lookalike to swallow you whole.
DO: EXERCISE CAUTION WHEN USING UNFAMILIAR GADGETS
Whether you’re all snugly on Earth or zooming through space, always use technology responsibly. You might be surprised how many things go wrong when you eliminate the concept of sound itself.
DON’T: RUN AFOUL OF THE ROBOT MAFIA
Traveling to a gamblers’ paradise like Mars Vegas can be fun, but make sure not to lose any robot gangsters’ money in the process. Otherwise, they might hit you in the face with a book. Oh, and you’ll also be marked for death.
Aside from some pretty advanced astrophysics, that should be about it. You’re now ready to blast off without looking like a total Earth rube. Have a great trip, and check out the Jeff & Some Aliens series premiere, which you can watch early right now. To quote Zoidberg, “Hooray!”
