Imagine that you are abducted by aliens
The friendly kind, not the anal probing kind. What if these aliens told you that you, and only you, could come back to their planet, but you would have to leave for it right away(no goodbyes). What if they told you if you did this, they would teach you everything about their(MUCH advanced) race. And you could return to earth whenever you like.
But what if they told you it takes 5 years to get to their planet, and 5 years to get back to earth…Would you do it?
I would do it, and it wouldnt take me long to come to that decision. I’ll give my reasoning after I hear what you guys have to say.
@yoinkie, I would do it, that would be amazing! Although I’d hope they have some good board games for the 5 year trips, or a long ass sleep inducing machine that would also keep your sleeping body healthy… they are much advanced.

@misssunbeam, ah, great start to the quesitons/pondering. I would assume, that if aliens are travelling that long, they might have somethng like that? Or maybe they age much better then us, and have a much better understanding of time passing(like they dont get impatient if nothing happens for 10 minutes like humans do). Also, I bet the have some nice intergalactic hallucinogens to pass the time, haha. Can you imagine? Alien weed?!
@yoinkie, That’s like being transported to heaven! I can’t imagine NOT going with them :D
