In case of alien abduction these dog tags may save your life. The crucial data an alien will need to get you back to Earth is die stamped into these dog tags. The design is based on NASA research for the Pioneer 10 Space Mission that used a gold plaque attached to the craft to inform any Extraterrestrials of it's Earthly origin.
Engraved with several methods of locating Earth in the Galaxy, an alien pilot does not need to understand any human language to use this information. The mathematical location of Earth in relation to several important pulsars is represented by the radial diagram. Earth's relation to the solar system is shown at the top. Also included is a schematic of Earth itself and it's major land masses. Two human icons (man and woman) are graphically connected to Earth at points in all three diagrams and are shown with their hands waving as a gesture of goodwill.

If only John Crichton had thought to buy one of these ....
Amazing that these things encompass how our Earth is just one small point in the vastness of the Universe...
...yet still manage to forget that more than one of "it's major land masses" is inhabited.
When the drawing gets to Europe, it looks like the artist went "and there's some coast here" and drew a squiggle. If we get aliens landing in the Mediterranean and getting annoyed, we'll know who to blame.
