      If the voodoo didn't work the first time, eat another disgusting arm, because surely it'll work the next time.

              South African gangs think it's good business to amass a collection of alien weapons that none of them can use.

                They knew there was ongoing research into how the weapons could be used; and the aliens wanted them too. Two reasons to get the weapons.

                  You can always spot the human turned alien because he can make a flower out of garbage and the real aliens can create super computers put of garbage...dead give away

                          A multi-national organization trying to make a profit from developing alien weapons won't bother to try to study the massive space ship that's been hanging clear above the city for 20 years with no obvious means of propulsion or power.

                            If contact with alien fuel makes a human turn into an alien, maybe plain old gas from a pump might turn an alien into a human.

                                    When firing back magnetically collected bullets, they will only hit those who fired them and not Wikus who was right in the line of fire.

                                      It took twenty years to collect that amount of alien fluid drop by drop but they still had enough after Wikus sprayed himself.

                                          It takes 20 years to gather enough fluid to fit in a canister the size of a ruler, which is the minimum needed to fly the ship. So...the few ounces that sprayed Wickis were just to be on the safe side?

                                                        Transforming into an alien is relatively painless and quick.

                                                            You won't actually know you're turning into an alien until you see your body actually change. You won't feel it at all.

                                                            It's no use trying to trick baby aliens into the interspecies prostitution trafficking world with lollipops and sweets.
