Poll question: If an alien spaceship landed in your backyard

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. Give them directions to the White House.
They always ask to "take me to your leader."

4. Al Gore doesn't live in the White house
although he REALLY is our leader.

3. Other
After that wierd incident in Mellen, Wisconsin in 1975, I thought about this for some length.....finally figured out what I would do.

What?

I'd throw a rock at it...softly of course.....

Why?

A rock bouncing off of it would tell me a lot. Like:

Am I dreaming/hallucinating?
Is it metallic?
Is it hollow or solid?
does it dent or IOW how strong is the surface?
Will this rock piss them off?

These are the things I can remember but I think there were a lot more...feel free to add your own.

5. I'd probably ask a few questions pertaining to whether I could live on
their planet for a while.....

6. I would be relieved.
At least it would explain why Bush's approval ratings are still in the 40s as opposed to much lower where they belong.

7. The first thing I'd say is...
..."You have GOT to be lost. My advice is to leave now and, um, if you can make room for four humans..."

12. Go out and say "hi!"

13. NOT the Whitehouse....
The LAST place I'd send them is the Whitehouse. Maybe I would recommend the Dali Lama.
