    So this little discussion came a few years back whilst we were watching Close Encounters . I just happened to mention at the end that if it was me I'd have to go . The wife was taken aback saying you would leave me and your family never knowing if you might return. Yup sorry but I'd just have to witness it and the thought of traveling beyond our solar system and marveling in the universe first hand would be to big a draw for me. I remember it turning a little ugly and selfish was mentioned at one point, how could you leave behind your loved ones etc. As hard as it would be though it would be something I couldn't resist , as I said at the time " sorry I'd do it in a heartbeat....bye " maybe should of worded it better , so how about you lot what would you do?

    I would sit back and watch it in HD (not 4k)...... If I can watch a war from the comfort of my sofa, I'm sure I could watch an alien invasion :)

    Who's to say that AVF aren't the aliens...

    We're watching you.

    Not being sure if I've got enough diesel in the tank to make my journey is one thing, but being taken by aliens, and not knowing whether I'll ever come home again is too much of a risk for me. It's too unknown. I like risk sometimes, but that's too big.

    @raduv1 be careful, if the conversation with your wife is anything to go by, she'll probably be making you leave, and the lawyers will do the whole anal probe thing for her :rotfl:

    I think if I had the same conversation with my wife, she'd view it as being selfish on my part for wanting to leave too, and I'd agree tbh.

    I voted stay.

    I've just mentioned this to my Doris. She wouldn't go, and she wouldn't want me to go and was offended at the thought that I might think about going.
    No really, I didn't say if I would or wouldn't, she thought that I would so she pre-empted that by getting hump for when I did say yes...
    So I said no just to prove a point, but in reality we both know that I would..

    I'm beginning to think this should be part of the "Wiring" thread :)

    I think the whole argument with your spouse issue could be preempted by changing the line to "Until death or aliens do us part" ;)

    I like a simple life so I'd stay. I want to get through my life on this planet with as little hassle as possible and as comfortable as I can. Boring I know but that is who I am.

    I'd definitely go. The alien technology would probably be advanced enough to bring me back to the current time, so it would be like I'd never left. :thumbsup:

    They look good but knowing my luck I'd offer one to the aliens who'd then have an allergic reaction and die meaning, with me not having a flying a spaceship license, I'd be left floating in space forever or crash onto a Predator training planet.

    I would love to go and If I had no wife and kids or later in life if I'm divorced and the kids are married themselves then perhaps I could bring myself to leave.
    But as of now, I vote Stay.
