Sentence: Wendell is not allowed to watch Sci-Fi movies. Every time he watches one he is left with an overwhelming sense of consteralienation. Every light in the sky, every unexplained noise he hears is surly extraterrestrial. He is just one step short of wearing tin foil on his head. This wouldn’t look good in his position as CEO of a major corporation.
