I really hope you're right. I would say that the "War of the Worlds" broadcast is proof of the contrary reaction, but then again, that was presented as an attack so that's not really a fair example. I guess it is all going to depend on how an ET presents itself. Like any of my guests, I like to have fair warning before they come knocking on my door (not that I shoot them if I wasn't expecting them.)

Good ol war of the worlds: Ever listened to it? (you can find it on youtube, well worth those 40seomething minutes) It is scary, it is spooky. It was broadcast in a time when the world stood at the brink of war.
The mass panic? I'd like to see one, just one, first hand account of somebody who panicked. Doesnt need to be audio, I'd actually be satisfied with written. But all stories are about "some guys somewhere did something", with the something not even being specified, much less the other 2 factors. (The most exact account i can recall is somebody shooting at a watertower somewhere)

Ha ha ha ha, I remember when this was on tv it was hilarious. Jeremy Beadle was a legend. One of the funniest moment on british TV for the past 50 years.
