(of course completely IMO)
If first contact were to happen in today, being one of the most (if not the most) significant events in our modern history, it would be a economic
Sure there would be some panicing, people racing to the store to buy up all the bottled water and non-perishables, religious zealots calling out that
it is the Apocolypse or that the aliens are Satan-spawn etc. And of course we'd have the folks hiding out in thier home-built bomb shelters
clutching onto whatever weapon they could find.
But the most devistating event, should they not be hostile, is the economic collapse due to everyone being glued to the TV. I know that during the
tragic events of 9/11 and the following days, I, among many others across the US, could not function without being able to see the latest developments
on the 'tube.
Productivity would grind to a halt, parking lots would be vacant (grocery stores and gun/ammo dealers are exempt and would most likely make a
fortune), Wall Street would close, factories would be empty, my cubicle would have tumbleweeds blowing by it because we would all be glued to the
tele' waiting to see what happened next.
But thats just my $.02
Now...bring on the way out there theories! I want to see what someone thinks would be happening at Dulce during this whole event.
