Ok so you are up late at night watching your computer crunching Seti data and you suddenly hear a soft buzzing noise outside your window. You probably would'nt have given it a second thought if it were'nt for the sudden flashing of lights and the appearance of... wait... really? That's an alien space craft out there!

They've obviously chosen to introduce themselves to you since you're an awesome seti@home person. So you, slightly trembling I would guess, take your late night coffee and walk out your back door into your yard and face the wondrous space craft in front of you.

A mic suddenly shoots out from it and settles in front of you.

What would be your first words to our new visitors?

Good question. I'd say: "Greetings, and welcome to Earth". Before some kind of delirium would take over me and I'd be unable to stop laughing/screaming in excitement :)

Non serious answers:

I've got plenty of beer in the fridge and Sucker Punch is about to start.

If you're looking for fuel, the petrol station is down the road.

Two hours I spend in the garden every day and you've just flattened my Fuchsia.

That's not a microphone, EVERYBODY RUN! WE'RE BEING INVADED! :)
