My compliance would hinge entirely on how how sexy/cool they were. Otherwise I'd be pretty apathetic, since I figure that they aren't coming to our planet out of the goodness of their hearts.

I'd try to be the best ambassador for Earth as I can and allow them to study me briefly if they're the curious type unless it involves probing or dissection.

I'd ask them for the secret of levitation; then, I'd "invent" it here on earth and either 1) market it to the masses and become a b-xillionairre or 2) build my own ship and become a recluse like Captain Nemo and keep levitation a secret for fear that the human race would only use it for a more advanced form of warfare.

I'd be more curious than anything else. And I don't even mean about technology and stuff. I'd want to learn their language, ask them about where they came from, what kind of government or organizational structure they have set up and how the ones I'm talking to fit into it, why they're interested us, and, assuming they even remotely resemble us (which they usually do in the movies and so called sightings), how they fit into our evolutionary prehistory.

yea, that would be my priority too.

Not levitation though. I'd want to know how they traveled hundreds of light years within a biological life time.

Oh yes, and laser gun technology too.

Well apparently they've been doing anal probing on us for millenia so I'd ask them if they ever found anything good up there.

They might view that as hostile intent...

Either that, or it would confirm that there is no intelligent life down here.

I'm surprised that nobody would crap themselves, i would think that the turding of the pants would be pretty prevalent in a situation such as this, perhaps everyone is wearing a tight fitting cork. Maybe if they whisked you off to their planet, then it may well happen.

I've always wanted to see a UFO, but never have. Still... I honestly don't know what I would do if I actually did. I'm pretty sure I'd be both excited and scared.

Reasoning of the average **** sapien earthian (in a dichotomous key):
1) Can we understand the alien?
No: Go to 2
Yes: Go to 3

2) Is the alien meek?
No: Kill it.
Yes: Eat it.

3) Is the alien more intelligent than us?
No: Enslave it.
Yes (a): Barter, manipulate, and lie to convince it to give as much technology, resources, and services to us as possible.
Yes (b): Fear it. Go to war.

But considering that humans cannot dialog with the other self aware animals on the same planet, I doubt we could communicate in any abstract way with creatures from another galaxy -- even if we could work out a rosetta stone of concepts based on mathematics. Who knows? We might start eating them before such a translation could be developed.

If humans cannot avoid war with their own species, how could they be peaceful with an entirely different sapient species? But I could always be hopeful and imagine that the alien lands on some island of peaceful monks and scientists and they work out a way to commune with each other in peace . . . but I can't help but doubt such a world that has Fox News.
