Right, you're stood there in a cornfield in the middle of nowhere.....
you hear a humming above you....

you look up......

and there's an enormous space ship hovering metres above your head...

the door opens, and you hear a voice....

it says...

"We come from a planet billions of lightyears away and we need to take TWO human beings back with us to live on our colony, we'll introduce you to things a hundred times stronger than love, a million times more complex then the internet...... but, if you come with us you will NEVER be able to come back.... however, we will allow you to bring ONE person with you"

what would you do? and if you'd go, who would you take? it could be anyone!

Are there any anal probes involved?

Get me Elisha Cuthbert while I pack my bags!

You mean like a non-problem-causing, simple instant teleportation device fuelled by bunny rabbits

what would you do? and if you'd go, who would you take? it could be anyone!

A daft answer, but it would really depend on how early in the day/my exact state of mind at that moment/and what I was doing in the damned cornfield to begin with (it's the sort of place i go to just think, meaning to be there to begin with, i had something serious on my mind). I can honestly say that at some moments, i'd go just like that, at others I'd refuse point blank, and periodically i'd have to agonise over the decision before tossing a coin.

Who would I take? No idea. I might try and do something helpful to the planet by taking somebody away to spare the world from them (i'm talking pure evil, like GW Bush, Osama Bin Laden, Rupert Murdock or Bill Gates*). I might just ask them to pick whoever they wanted. Or, more likely, I'd just pick whichever really hot girl jumped into my mind first.

but, if you come with us you will NEVER be able to come back

Hmmm. Actually, perhaps i'll take a technology genius. My hot-wiring skills are pretty good to begin with, and perhaps the two of us could later steal the ship, bring it back to Earth and thus both return home and become fabulously wealthy (though thats not a major goal of mine) from selling alien technology. Or just tour the Universe, H2G2 style.

  • They need Two humans, but it doesn't say that the two need to be friendly, or procreate or anything else. Just that they want two stupid humans in their colony.

I'm standing there in a cornfield in the middle of NOWHERE.

How the hell did I end up there? Might as well just take me. If I'm that lost here, let me try other pastures.

I'd be down with going... but I'd have to wonder how they plan to keep us alive since it will take one billion years to get back to where they came from... or can they travel faster than light by many times?

I would take Scarlet Johanson hands down.

Eh....I've been around enough to other countries and moved at least once to another country and contemplating moving to another, that it wouldn't bother me in the least. Sure I'll miss friends and family but that's all.

And to be sexist, I'd definitely be taking Jessica Alba along.

Can I take Elnaz?

Well, on second thoughts, I'd ring up the New Zealand Ministry of Defense and say "The Bastards have landed!"
