We can't even be certain that we've found all the planets in our solar system. For all we know there may have been aliens hanging out in our solar system for the last 100 years.

To any Martian or Neptunian resident, we grubby Terrestrials are an alien species. Earthlings have sent objects to inspect and infest their planets without receiving permission. Why trust us?

Prudent non-humans on other Solar-orbiting bodies ('planets' etc) would mask themselves from outside surveillance. Who knows what horrors lurk in space? We naive Terrestrials have yet to reach a sufficient level of paranoia.

Do unknown (to Earthlings) worlds in Solar orbits exist? Are they insignificant, or masked? Could any known planet(oid)s harbor technological societies hostile to Earthlings? Are the Ionians out to get us?

Excuse me for skepticism. Continued human existence supports my view. YMMV.

Fuck Neptune - there, we were all thinking it but nobody had the courage to go out there and say it. Martians are chill af but Neptunians smell like they've been hanging around Uranus. Fucking nerds.

Grandma told me that Dad was such a weird kid, she thought he must be Martian. Does that make me a Martian-American? Should I report for naturalization?
