Also, nobody but someone who doesn't get Alien movies talks about a xenomorph.
I don't understand this. That nomenclature comes directly from the second film. I guess you could argue the character who said it doesn't get Alien movies, in the sense that he didn't know he was in an Alien movie?
The 'nomenclature' as you call it was an in-film joke, as the marines immediately demonstrated.
The marines? If they could figure their way out of a phone booth without having to use a manual they wouldn't be cannon fodder in the first place. I wouldn't put too much trust in a bunch of juvenile morons who represent the target demographics for NASCAR and FOX News.
Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
