Nothing involving weird japanese people please!!!

OK, here is one I thought of the other day.

The Collectors

It is about a very advanced race that has the "collecting" gene, wherein one accumulates as much as collects in a formal way.

So what they do is go from planet to planet and collect all of the dna of all individuals that have lived of the dominant species and clone them so they are all part of their collection at once.

They say you should write what you know, so why don't you write about being a dick?
"It is not I who is mad! It is I who is crazy!" -- Ren Hoek

"[... it seems most strange that... ] the Creator of Heaven and Earth resorted to the womb of a certain Jewish lady, grew there for nine months and was born as an infant, and afterwards grew up and was betrayed into the hands of his enemies who sentenced him to death and executed him, and that afterwards... he came to life and returned to his original place. The mind of a Jew, or any other person, simply cannot tolerate these assertions. If you have listened all your life to the priests who have filled your brain and the marrow of your bones with this doctrine, and it has settled into you because of that accustomed habit. [I would argue that if you were hearing these ideas for the first time, now, as a grown adult], you would never have accepted them." -- Rabbi Moses ben Nahman, defending the Talmud at the Disputation of Barcelona, July 1263.

I am kicking one around about a the cursed movie. People who come across copies of it end up dead. It was thought the last copy of it went up in a fire in the 1960s. Until one shows up...

The twist is it isn't really cursed. But something got captured in the background of a shot that someone didn't want seen (haven't decided on the details of that yet). So someone has been murdering people and destroying copies for 60 years
