How would you react to aliens?

There's a ton of science fiction works about first contact with extraterrestrial life, most of which are extremely cliche of "omg aliens are invading". Let's try and avoide that cliche. However given how much effort we put into trying to find life out there in the universe if we were to ever make contact how would you react to the news?

Like several scenarios the most likely is we find life on europa or somewhere in our solar system. How would you react to them finding life in our solar system.

However also how would you react to us finding intelligent life off our planet. Either communicating with them through radio or actually coming to earth.

Also if it were something like the movie E.T. how would you handle being the first person to come across them? Like they don't know anything about the earth and you are the first person to come across them.

And no they aren't here to destroy the earth, humans or subjucate us. Also no not tentacle monsters for our japanese schoolgirls. Also not amazon women from Amazonia here for snu-snu.

Frankly I'd rather let somebody else make first contact with them if I had the choice.

But really I'd be quite positive about alien life visiting earth unless they're looking to turn us all into liquid, farm us, or invade our digestive tracts.

I'd introduce them to the furry fandom. :v


I'd actually be pretty excited to see another race. ^_^

If I was avoiding cliches, then the alien probably wouldn't speak English. So it would be very awkward if I am the first human with contact and I can't even communicate. Even a wave or a handshake could be a death threat in their language.

Oh man learning their language would be a pain in the ass.

I'd react by building a space fence to keep them out.

What if these aliens had to wear a spacesuit before coming down to our planet? For one, they might look incredibly intimidating. The human spacesuit would actually look pretty terrifying if aliens saw it, since it's a giant thing that looks like it has a huge soulless eye taking up the whole head. Otherwise, maybe if they were suited, we might not realise they are alien. They might just look like a weirdo in a strange-looking motorbike outfit.
 
If they arrived in my back garden, I'd take them inside and play them a selection of my favourite music. Don't ask me why, but there you go.

But if they found them on Europa or something, I'd probably go up to my friend who doesn't think there's life anywhere but Earth and say "Ha! I told you we weren't the exception!".

I'm with Percy on this, you can speculate on how you'd react till hell froze over but you wouldn't really how you'd react till it happened.

any race smart enough to reach us would do some research before hand. (assuming they didn't want to kill us all) they would know that appearing on earth would illicit a hostile response. i would expect them to set up on another planet in the solar system and wait for us to find them

They use the internet as research.

I'd assume they contain bacteria/viruses my immune system has no defense for.

If they're intelligent enough to travel between planets, I'm sure they'd be afraid of things like our common cold killing them as well. I'm sure they'd be wearing fulling contained suits and sterilizing them when entering or leaving their craft to keep themselves and ourselves safe. We already do that ourselves with vehicles that land on Mars to keep any possible microbial life from being affected by our own planet's contaminants.

(Providing that they have done research before coming down to our planet and spent many painful hours learning our language (or english at least)). I would purposefully speak complete gibberish and pretend I didn't understand a word they were saying. This would make them believe that they had wasted time learning a language we do not even speak forcing them to retreat and try to learn/ check the language we speak (afterwards they would come back). Lather, rinse, repeat >: D
But seriously I have to agree with Percy. I have absolutely no idea how I would really react if I ever met an alien.

I would call upon the courage of The Emperor, summon the Inquisition, and bring death to the Xenos scum.

I think it's safe to assume that they will not be humanoid... or even vaguely resemble anything earthlike, so I'd probably be shocked by the sight of something completely new, possibly vile and nasty-looking
