So you have 5 mins, what do you say?
« on: 11/06/2008 17:21:56 »
OK here's my question, you meet an alien by chance, you see him land behind your house or something, and he sees you and comes over to say hello, you have a conversation for a while, and you realise that this alien is OK, he's just here on holiday for a year, he looks human, and just as he is about to leave and go off on his adventure on planet Earth, he says: "Do you have any advice before I go?"

So my question is this: in the few minutes you have, what advice would you give him, to help him along?

I think I would say: "If you always do the right thing, your probably gonna get smacked, if you always do the wrong thing, your definitely gonna get smacked.
You could try and stumble along on the middle ground between the two, but you'll probably just end up getting smacked more, and if by some miracle you didn't get smacked, someone would probably see you and say 'hey, he ain't been smacked' and you'll get smacked.
So really which ever way you look at it, your getting smacked.
So my advice is, don't let the smacking change you, or get you down. Roll with the punches and enjoy your time here Tiger. And don't forget, if you can enjoy the rain, how much better is the sun ;)

Then I'd walk off signing Bob Dylan,

'Oh they'll stone you when you're trying to be so good
they'll stone you just like they said they would.....' :)

If I said  "always make sure the shower curtain is inside the bath before showering" would anyone here get the reference?

How many mpg do you get with that thing and what do you get on a long run?

also, I would say, "always read the entire first post before you blurt out a response."

Well, the American would shoot him and the Ozzy would give him a beer. The English always play safe inbetween the two with Tea.

Hey, rosalind, I'm still not sure about the 'others' by the way, we fear them, generally.
They are out there somewhere.

So anyway I wonder who, is going to win the first prize: 'A collection of sponges that lily, never wanted'
It's a total lie, I've already eaten them(Sorry lily I just couldn't wait any longer) I'll get more for the winner.

I thought we already met the alien determined he was ok and now we had talked and he was off to see the world.... So then we were going to give him some good advice to send him on his way... Eh.. LOL Now we are showing him our hospitality which I would have done prior to the conversation upon meeting him..

 I think I will allow him to sample many teas.. LOL but advice is what I thought we were supposed to give or her!! LOL!

That's so naughty.

Anyway:

It does get we wondering what the 'others' would give, so, I'll start;

SPAINISH:

Hot Chocolate and churros

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Churro
--------------------------------------

Belgium: (They don't say belgish)

Waffles

http://www.geocities.com/soho/2830/bbwaff.html
-------------------------

Well, I think you get the idea.

"In human society probing is not acceptable, (well, not on a first date anyway)".  :)

Well, now that depends doesn't it. :)
 
Apparently if an English girl excepts your invite for coffee, then she feels obliged to put out.  ??? Maybe that's why so many don't reply [:-'(] I just wanted to chat, but do they answer? Nooo! They just sit all they way over there in their ivory castle and ignore you.

Was I asking for too much? What's the problem with having a coffee? I love feminism, she can pay; I have no problem there at all. Your bangs don't intimidate me lady. You offer sponges and all sorts(liquorish) where does it get you? No where, that's where! Still here, being ignored! And all because apparently, English ladies can't say yes to coffee or dinner, without having to have sex with you.
