MEME: Saturday Six - Episode 156 - Easter Edition

I hope you're having a nice Easter weekend. I've gotten a lot of things accomplished so far, and I still have a full day left! I could get used to three-day weekends! Incidentally, this week's edition marks the completion of three years of weekly questions! Next week, there will be a special edition of the Saturday Six to start off year four!

Last week, Nichole of "My Two Cents" was first to play. Congratulations, Nichole!

Here are this week's "Saturday Six" questions. Either answer the questions in a comment here, or put the answers in an entry on your journal...but either way, leave a link to your journal so that everyone else can visit! To be counted as "first to play," you must be the first player to either answer the questions in a comment or to provide a complete link to the specific entry in your journal in which you answer the questions. A link to your journal in general cannot count. Enjoy!

1. Do you believe that there is some form of intelligent life on a planet other than Earth?
Yes. I have seen an inexplicable airborne phenomenon which leads me to believe there is “something out there.”
2. If there was, and we were to encounter it, which do you think would do more harm to the other: the Earthlings or the Extra Terrestrials?
We are a race of killer monkeys. Unless the encounter occurs in the near future (while we're still out-gunned), I'd fear for a positive outcome. We've managed to kill off or severely threaten the continued existence of most other predators on the planet.
3. If a close friend or family member told you that they had been kidnapped by aliens, how likely are you to believe them if they can offer no physical evidence?
Seeing “inexplicable airborne phenomenon” is one thing; being kidnapped or otherwise messed with is quite another. In short, no, without evidence to the contrary, I'd view all claims of alien abduction as figments of over-fertile imaginations.
4. Take the quiz: How likely is it that you would be abducted by Extra Terrestrials?

You have a 19% chance of being abducted

You have a fairly poor chance of being abducted. You are skeptical about the existence of aliens, but you allow that they could exist somewhere. Maybe.

5. If you could fly in a spaceship to get a close look at any of the planets besides Earth, which would you choose and why?
I'd start with the first Class M planet in the Sirius system. According to a recent movie, it is a planet of hyper-intelligent canids who communicate via telepathy and manipulate tools and materials via telekinesis.
6. If you had the chance to live on a fully-developed colony on Mars, would you do so?
I'm not sure that I would, given NASA subcontractors' recent glaring failures. Who wants to live in a 'built by the lowest bidder' habitat, anyway?
