Just pull up 4chan.

Best (and closest) descriptions to 4chan I've ever heard:

Imagine the earth had an anus, and the feces of every creature on Earth passed through it. Now imagine you're strapped eagle spread over it. This is what it's like to spend time on 4chan.

A demonically possessed orangutan, flailing it's testicles across a keyboard, would produce more intelligent content, than that found in 4chan.

Did you read that at 4chan?

Oh no, 4chan isn't the anus of the internet.

4chan is where the people too ill-behaved for the anus of the internet went.

Dan, once Gharr sees what Internet sources you base your opinions on, he'll hand you the most solid WiFi ban since Marconi. :-3

Surely even you're not naively cynical enough to think that what you've about to pull up is an accurate representation of humanity.

Bonus points if he pulls up the same site that convinced him Gharr would be telepathic.

Dan, kindly shut the fuck up for a moment. Stop making this harder than it has to be.

Real talk, Gharr is definitively the one to listen to, and Dan ought to know it. As he's taken pains to point out (probably many times offscreen), Gharr is from an advanced multi-species interstellar culture, and a trained xenologist at that. Even odds he's taken full-length spacecollege classes on the mechanisms and warning signs of xenophobic militarization, with case studies from dozens of cradleworld civilizations.

Dan, meanwhile, is some yahoo who hangs out on conspiracist chatrooms, and he's already seen one half of his worldview shatter when actually tested against reality. It could be argued that he's lived on the same planet and country as the Protagonistani military his whole life, and has much better data on them than on aliens, but on the other hand, so have Mark and Val, and they think he's full of beans.

Unfortunately, people with Dunning-Kruger bias do not realize that they have Dunning-Kruger bias. Hopefully one of the others points this all out, perhaps starting with his reflex to go for the Internet despite his own insistence on dark mode and triple caution.

Yeah, not happening. He's a good guy, well meaning. As bright as a burnt bean at the bottom of the pot.

Honestly, I think he's only even well-meaning under certain specific circumstances, and we're just lucky Gharr was one of those. He strikes me as being sympathetic toward aliens not on their own merits, but simply because they aren't humans.

An attitude I totally understand...humans suck.

Yeah, not happening. He’s one of those fools who’s convinced he’s right and nothing you say can convince him otherwise.

There's a twist here though: All three of the others in the house have veto power over his stay-hidden policy, if they decide it's worth an open break with him.
