How can anyone be ready for the unknown?

First Contact...ahh, how nice a thought.
Well, lets consider some things.
They come for our resources:
They Come for the planet itself:
They come for slaves:
They come to simply kill for fun:
Ultimately, if a alien ship is hovering over a city and lands..we can assume that they come for little more than to simply meet the neighbors. They may give us some tough love and basically ground us until we can stop killing each other or whatever sort of rules may be out there...but otherwise, I will definately be one to try and find a good seat to see and potentially shake their little green hands should they come.

edit to add: I'm not sure if contact will turn out to be good or bad, but I have always wished that it would happen in my lifetime because I just want to know one way or the other, dammit.

Your get vaccinated got me thinking.
Maybe they would try it by lifting an influenza strain up to a pandemic threat ? How would you vaccinate an entire population without telling them its's because of disclosure ?
hmmm - maybe they're here now?

I think being 'ready' is an understatement! I've been anxiously waiting for First Contact for a while now!
I think they're up there waiting for the OH-KAY to land!

What would I do?
Throw what little gold I possess out the window (just to be safe) and go say HI.
