SciFi Essay Topics - Any Ideas? Answered

For school, I have to write a 6-8 page essay, double spaced, about a chose topic. My teacher said we could pick our own, but she (a) has to approve of it, and (b) it has to be mysterious/unsolved/SciFi/urban legend/consipracy theory. Also, any suspicious crimes, like that concerning Lizzie Borden, are also accepted. My friend is writing of the Chupacabra. Does anyone have any ideas on some good topics, that I won't be straining to find info to write about, i.e., a topic with a ton of info, so much so that I have to condense it? I love the genre that my teacher gave, conspiracy theories, SciFi, and urban legends are my thing. I just can't think of any that would be worth writing so much about. Thanks, I appreciate it!

Yeah I know, I was kind of pulling your leg, playing along, only in the opposite direction ;-) Dangerous, yes; but necessary, of course. Without water, we wouldn't have life here. I have a printout of that I carry with me in my briefcase for emergencies. ;-)

Ok, so there's this invention (field generating device) called AO, and it acts upon the earths magnetic field altering the Schumann Resonance, (which happens to coincide with Brain Wave Frequencies) and by this influence AO inhibits violent thoughts. World peace follows, a world-famous doctor named Mel discovers the fountain of youth, (which just so happens to be full of pure DiHydrogen Monoxide) and everyone lives happily ever after. This all happens in 2012 just as a nuke war seems imminent. A time traveler told me so. :)

Here's a question to answer: How come almost all "aliens" appear to be humanoid in some fashion ? Is this some sort of pattern ?

Not the ones from Independence Day. They were like squids, with tentacles on their face. Now, Signs, those were humanoid, and for that I dislike it. I don't think aliens, if they are out there, are humanoid. They are most likely a simple kind of life.

In the USA, it is usually illegal for aliens to take human form. Animals are ok though as long as they come by themselves.

Well, of course, in the USA, it is illegal for aliens to stay here with a green card.

Sure, it's the pattern that human beings sense and recognize as beings.

They seem to be the only form that "makes constructive sense", at least to us. Crustacea would have a difficult time building space craft, as would softer bodied animals. Insects, when portrayed as such normally stand upright, and if you watched the early Star Treks, they all spoke perfect English too.

Amen to that. I've also heard it as big shoelaces.
