Why aliens haven't visited Earth

Kim Komando:  "I know why aliens haven't visited Earth.  We only have a one-star rating."

In the fictional "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy", the listing for Earth only says, "Mostly harmless."

Clever Elephant Taking Road Tax from Sugarcane Trucks

Canadian Tire | Jim Gaffigan

I worked from September 1991 to January 1993 for a new business called Auto Source which was a subdivision of Canadian Tire.

"The second time, during the early 1990s, Canadian Tire decided to try to open a specialized auto parts chain called Auto Source that tried to have more than 25,000 different parts on the shelf in each store, more than its competitors. The first Auto Source was opened in Indianapolis in 1991.[25] Unlike the previous attempt, the Auto Source concept was built from scratch.[26] During the next three years, Canadian Tire had opened two Auto Source stores each in Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Dayton, Columbus and Louisville for a total of ten stores before abruptly closing the money-losing chain in 1995.[27][28][29] Some of the stores, were sold to Pep Boys.[30]

Although the Auto Source lost nearly CA$60 million during its four years of existence, a scaled down version was used in Canada under the PartSource brand."
