Default What would you do...extraterrestrial

It's Wednesday, you are heading to lunch and check the news...

BREAKING NEWS!!

Large object heading towards Earth. It is slowing down as it approaches. Estimated arrival in six days. More to come as the situation develops.

You check other news sites and they all say something similiar.

What would you do? Go home, go shopping, go to lunch and back to work? Head to the hills, what?

Slowing down for a large object would be very highly unexpected, but I may not jump to intelligence behind it immediately. So, I would wait for more info considering it was six days out. Is it on a collision course would probably be my first concern. How large?

I would start packing the car for an extended camping trip. I figure aliens won't hunt down someone in the middle of nowhere.

Not entirely sure what I would do, but I know what I would not do: go back to work!

First instinct is to assume they are wrong about it slowing down. Nothing slows down, and all the best current science suggests there is no ET.

So it's going to impact us -- try to find out where, and it's estimated size.
Depending on the details, maybe more than cockroaches survive, and maybe it's wise to be in very deep water, in which case that's our destination, unless we are already there . Otherwise, we sail as far away from the estimated area of impact as we can in 6 days, to increase our chances of surviving.

Go buy some really good steaks, fresh veggies, mushrooms, beer, scotch, treats for the dog, clean and polish my guns, get more mags ready, download some pron...if the world is gonna end, I'm gonna enjoy it. If it doesn't end, I'm gonna have a private party to celebrate the new order of the universe...then fight like hell to keep my litte part of it intact.

Extraterrestrials are the least of our worries.

I would head out, call the family while on the road, and go to a store that has a .50cal rifle and scope I have been fondling for awhile now. Now I have a reason so I pick it up as well as all the 50 ammo and reloading paraphernalia for it. Next stop is the bank to withdrawal some $$$ from savings. Then hit the RV store and pickup a tow behind camper and swing by COSTCO and BJ's.

Mamma would also visit the bank as well to get some $$$, then, COSTCO and BJ''s. Then swing buy a gun shop near her to pick up any 50 ammo in stock and maybe some additional reloading supplies for the 50.

If nothing happens, the trailer gets returned and I get to play with the 50. The COSTCO and BJ's supplies were extras as we have plenty of preps already. These new adds would either just go in the pantry and storage or be donated, depending.

However, I do like the SonofaWWIIDI's idea of making sure to get some really good cuts of meat and the fixings and have some really good meals for the next few days.

At some point we would make the call to head out. I dont know what that would be, but we would be ready for it.

I would load a single round into my VP9 and yell at the spaceship “Hey don’t come any closer. I have a VP9 and a round in the chamber”

They’d head out to Alpha Centuri or somewhere else

Would be a good opportunity from some in the marketplace to sell their inflated priced weapons since the aliens wouldn't know any better?

Also remember the famous quote from Arthur C. Clarke:

"There are two possibilities in the universe. One we are alone, one we are not. Both are equally frightening."
