    Default Would you go



    Here is one for you.

    I was drinking with my sister and brother in-law on a clear night in Majorca and gazing at the stars. We got talking about UFO,s and my sister gave her husband a hard stare and said "remember when you said if an alien craft landed in front of you and the occupants offered to take you away to their civilisation, you wouldn,t give it a second thought and would climb the steps onboard in an instant"

    we all laughed, but actually its a tough one to answer.

    What would the readers of this forum do, go or stay

    10 or even 20 years ago NO...but today (at 65) what the heck I've been around the block enough to know I've almost seen it all.

    SO yep I'd just request a room with a view and a Bloody Mary

    I would go to see a doctor in a mental ward right away for having hallucinations. Aliens do not visit us in flying saucers. UFOs are not alien spaceships.

    I think I would go, as it would give me a chance to see or do more than mankind has ever done before.

    At a few low points in my life I have wished that I could take a 1 way trip around the universe for the rest of my life, travel it, see galaxies, black holes and never return.

    Since watching the documentary of the Rovers on Mars, getting a glimpse of what they see, its kinda made me curious of how things would actually be, living on another planet or getting a free ride with the ISS, I wouldnt mind at all, being up there adapting to a whole new way of life...Id do it!

    "Thank you for your generous offer, but I will stay."

    As much as it would kill me, I would have to decline the offer of a one-way trip to some other planet. I can make a much bigger difference here on Earth with my own family, raising my own children and making a positive impact on my corner of the world.

    If I go with the aliens, I'm basically deadweight along for the ride, like a pet or an idiot circus boy for their entertainment. They don't stand to learn anything from me they can't learn by simply being on Earth in the first place.

    If the offer was a two-way trip and I didn't have to miss more than about a year here on Earth, I might consider it.

    I would go since it would be a chance in a life time as long as my daughter could go with me.
