Humans are weird, aren't they?

From taking selfies at the gym to the way we hang out with people we actively dislike during festive periods - the quirks of human nature are all but normal -even to us. But what would an alien make of our modern world if they ended up renting an apartment here?

This was the thought process that led me to create a new Instagram comic exploring that very concept. 

'Lessons in Humanity' follows the day-to-day life of Will as he attempts to help his roommate, an alien named Armstrong, unravel the mysteries of human society.

A mix of satirical and silly humor, the comic ultimately aims to showcase how mind-boggling human behavior really is if you think about it hard enough. Below is a selection of topics the comic has already touched upon, find more on the comic's official Instagram page.

Another significant factor in homophobia is that straight men are afraid of gay men treating them the way they treat women....

The guys have to spread the whole field, though. The amount of chemicals they'd get directly on them would be much higher than what they're spraying on each plant, which will also be less than what we'll actually ingest.

To be fair, lost of people aren't overweight because they overeat, but because they eat poorly. Heavily processed meals full of calories and sugars are cheaper and easier.

Nope, Christmas is about the excitement of searching for presents for my family, wrap them up in the awesomest wrapping paper, decorating the cutest tree and the excitement of watching them open their gift. The happiness that someone loves you, of reliving your childhood memories 😉
