This site has been proposing hidden aliens. What if they appeared outside your door knocking, Slithering, floating or walking into your living room?

I would forgo the usual complaint of a lack of decorum and manners (since I can hardly expect visiting species to know my regional customs, or indeed my individual expectations toward people visiting my home), and accept their self invitation to enter my home.


a) What would you try to communicate with them and why?

I think that rather depends on what manner of creature they were, and what if any attempts had been made by the visitor to speak to me. To be honest, I would hope that at least some communication would have occurred at the doorstep, or at least the attempt at such. I would have to be lead by the visitors. Assuming a certain level of intelligence, one would have thought that they would have been able to figure out a system of gesticulation, or indeed learned to replicate a pigeon version of my language in order to begin rudimentary dialogue with me, in the same way as some people vocalise in hopes of calling a duck. From actual discussion with a person who does not share your mother tongue, it is much easier to pick up words by experimentation, than by training, in my experience, so some understandings might be come to by that method.

I certainly would not resort to trying mind to mind communication unless the aliens themselves were to suggest such a thing to me in my skull, since I find the very thought of that nothing more than HILARIOUS, since the vast majority of persons who believe that it works, come across (with out wanting to be rude, and without wanting to lie through my teeth as well) as nothing more than hippies more often than not, and I am not a hippy.


b) If you had a live video feed where would you send it?

I do not have the capability to send a live transmission to the internet, unless I am skyping with someone. I have no idea how to send a live video to Youtube, or anywhere else, and I am not sure if any of the technology I have available, actually has that capability. I am pretty sure it does not, but it is something I would have to check out.


c) What are your fears and hopes for this event?

I would hope that I would be able to represent my species in a positive light, that I would be able to learn enough about our visitors to make their stay welcoming and comfortable, and that the communion of our species would lead to a longer term discussion between our two species en masse, rather than just on the individual level, but I would hope that everyone, eventually, would be able to have that same communication, to know that this species is not alone in the universe, that there is other sentience wrapped in other flesh, somewhere out there in the depths of space. My greatest fear for that scenario, would be doing something stupid, like accidentally terrifying the visitors somehow, or being terrified by them, to the point where I make a damned fool of myself/us.


d) What would be needed for undeniable proof of the visit after they left?

Well, I would have thought that the measure applied to that, would be the same as applied to any other situation. Forensics, skin flakes, saliva analogues, any biological trace, perhaps alien sweat, or skin secretions of some sort. Also, photographic evidence (if only for my photo album... I see new wallpaper in my future if that ever happens !), and perhaps videographic. The thing is, I very much doubt that in the initial stages of any contact like the one in this scenario, that I would be capable of thinking like a scientist about any of this. I would probably be in awe, and a little hyper, and in need of a shot or two of fine rum. I mean, sure, if I answer the door with an iPad in hand, then I am going to get some snaps of the fellows, and I do not live far from a chemists shop, so I could get sample jars and cotton buds for collection of evidence without any problems what so ever. But you are talking about an event so monumental as to be fantastic!

Also, personally speaking, it would be a brain buggeringly big deal for me, because although I have no problem with the idea of extra terrestrial intelligences (in fact I believe that they are as near as damnit, a mathematical certainty when you consider the size of the universe and the number of stars and planets in it), I have never been one hundred percent convinced of any of the stories of visitation that I have read or been shown. They have all had their merits, do not get me wrong, but the fact is, that I have never been one hundred percent sold on any of them. To have a species show up, at my door though? That would be... mind shatteringly brilliant. Well worth a trip to the loony bin for I reckon!

"If ET came knocking upon your door what would you do?"

I would make toilet in my pants.

No lie.


If I was still conscious, priorities. Ask for a nitro for between my lip and tongue-- if the palpitations stop in time before I run out of oxygen a refill of Ricky's premium mud and a homemade legitimate fattie for each of us. I've been rolling my own with half-strength gooey shag tobacco for awhile now, and friends are supposed to overlook our faults. Joke 'im if he can't take a suck: I do have a way of getting by T&C...

If he refuses either of the stimulants I pull off the cowl and hit the black button.
I'm , not going to bother saying "If anybody touches me," : we just go, pants full or not.

On the other hand if he starts crying first, we'll gently hug and I'll [think/speak]
I don't care what she did to drive you to come here-- I still love you anyway."
He'll most likely cry because I'm uglier than your grandma's crawl space under d'trailer.

EDIT:: D. deserves special consideration if three criteria are successfully met: the ET was sufficiently humanoid, extremely attractive and presently unattached. No camera would be necessary or allowed, but she'd by God remember me. Spockstein out.

Well for starters I'd tell him to bring back my copy of Skyrim, I lent it to him weeks ago when he buzzed my house and I haven't seen it since.

Seriously I wouldn't know what to do of the top of my head, but I sure as hell wouldn't tell the authorities. Their immediate response would be to capture or kill the alien without any chance of dialogue.

However if an alien did knock on my door it would be the most awkward conversation ever, since we don't speak the same language or share the same body language. If I tried to shake it's hand/claw/tentacle I could be calling his mother a cow for all I know.

I don't think the poor beggar would get to our front door...

The dogs would have him/her/ it first...

If, however I did get the knock on the door, I think I would suggest that the alien goes back to where he came from as here on earth he/she/it would be most unhappy...

I would not want him/her/it to end up in a jam jar filled with formol liquid...

Kindest respects

Invite them in and make them dinner!

I wouldn't film it and I wouldn't take pics. I"d enjoy the experience myself and hope they like my cooking

If ET came knocking upon your door what would you do?

Call the police and tell them that I have an Alien at my front door.

I would then politely offer the alien a beer whilst we waited for the police to arrive and knowing that I have anywhere between 20 minutes and never before the police arrive, I would entertain my guest by asking him if he would like to experience the pleasure of babysitting.

Once I got him to agree, I would ask the alien if I could take the missus for a rap in his UFO whilst the alien babysat the kids for us whilst simultaneously waiting for the police.

I would then go fly over NORAD looking for a drag race.

That is what I would do.

Crack open the good stuff from under the stairs not the usual Russian floor cleaner+salt i save for the average guest

If an alien came to my house, I would tell it to have a seat in my favorite recliner chair, dim the lights,
offer it a Peace Pipe filled with Mary Jane(Marijuana) and watch Independence Day.

I would try to get them to stay long enough for me to pack a few clothes, then plead with them to take me with them...

I guess it would depend on how frightening their appearance was. If it looked like a non threatening humanoid I guess I would be less likely to be quite as freaked out (I would still be plenty freaked out) if it looked slimy and yucky and big, I would more than likely RUN. I mean it would be like a MONSTER knocking at your door.

That is pretty sad though, just because something looks intimidating does not mean it means harm. Look at the Manatees, Giraffe, Elephant, Whale, they all would look scary if they were to knock at your door, but for the most part are non threatening. Not that any of them could knock at your door I am just saying.

a) What would you try to communicate with them and why?


"You can't park there you're blocking my access!".


b) If you had a live video feed where would you send it?


Whoever paid the most.


c) What are your fears and hopes for this event?


I fear I would get inundated with wierdos seeking answers and hope the aliens didn't stick things in my bottom.


d) What would be needed for undeniable proof of the visit after they left?


Leaving one ET behind to "phone home".

Ask what star system they come from. Then cook them an organic vegetable meal. Then play some Neptunes music.

Then you would get flamed or debunked by people saying that it was either cgi, a rock or your next door neigbour trick or treating last Halloween.

Chances are they might be in human form rather than their natural state, this way their differences would not be so alarming. When people see people that look different it is usually shocking, for instance someone who is horribly disfigured. Now add to that another life form other than human and most people are just not prepared.


The Good:
If they were injured and in natural state, I would know automatically what to do. I would help them.
I do not believe that we are all that important in the big picture that they will single a person out to just connect. If it was your hybrid son or daughter from an abduction, well that is against the rules...

The Bad:
Fight on every level. Fight with all my might on every level.


The Ugly:
Is in the eye of the beholder, this is why it is important to accept unconditionally and without judgements before deciding what you would do. Trust yourself to sense benevolence from malevolence regardless of what you have been told.

What if it is a vegetable life form and you are cooking its long lost relatives and by doing this you are sealing earth fate to the hands of the vengeful vegetables.

Ill stick to hide and drink beer after

Knock it down, tie it up, take it's keys and jack his ride. A joy ride buzzing DC, Times Square and pause for a few minutes in front of each of the TV networks headquarters. Probably do same in Europe then tour the solar system stopping by mars to ham it up on camera and finally head out into the galaxy.

You only get something like that once in a lifetime.
