Out of the Blue

So I spoke with the lady from the tree doctor place yesterday, and decided that since the guys showed up Friday because a customer complained they left a mess, I would help them out by saying what a great job they had done for us. When I told her this was because they thought they were supposed to do a follow-up visit here, she was incredulous that they could have mistaken us for the house they were supposed to visit, implying that they'd have to be idiots to think so. So it seems my effort at getting them out of trouble did the exact opposite. Teach me to try and help.

Perhaps turning the bio-weapon black goo into incubators (or whatever) for eggs. And overgrowing the metal canisters and either turning them into resin or forming a big resin cocoon around them.

Most of the "plot holes" are people not understanding the movie, or complaints about Scott not explaining everything, which isn't a plot hole.

The cylinders were created by the Engineers to deliver the black goo. The eggs are laid by the Xenomorph.

**Spoilers**

The Xenomorph are the result of the facehugger implanting in an Engineer/Human. There aren't any facehuggers until a human gives birth to one. Direct infection by the black goo just seems to make their heads asplode. That seems to be the biological progression, but there's more to it than that, though, since there's a carved image of a Xenomorph in the cave.

The one plot hole I haven't seen a plausible explanation for is why David's head is still next to his body after the spaceship crash.
