Can you survive an alien abduction?
You are enjoying an after-dinner burrito in your backyard when a bright light in the sky catches your eye. At first you think it must be the lights of an airplane, or perhaps a particularly bright star you haven’t noticed before – but the light suddenly gets bigger and bigger, shining on the trees in your yard as though it is daytime.
The light splits into multiple beams in a circular pattern, and you gasp as you realise they are part of a huge, metallic UFO hovering above your house!
Take our quiz to find out what happens next…
The UFO lowers closer and closer towards you. It is silent as it descends. There is no doubt about it now – it is coming down directly over your backyard. What do you do?
You hardly get a chance to do anything, because suddenly a beam of blinding white light shoots out of the centre of the UFO, directly at you. You squint your eyes against the brightness – and feel your feet leave the ground. The light pulls you up through an opening in the UFO and deposits you inside. You see that you are surrounded by bald, grey-skinned, large-eyed aliens, looking at you expectantly. What do you say to them?
Surprisingly, the aliens speak English. “We’d like to run some tests now,” one of them says. “Please go and sit on that chair.” You’re suddenly very worried – you’ve heard all about the kinds of tests aliens like to perform. When you sit down, however, there is not a probe in sight. Instead, they ask you a question and ask you to choose from one of four answers. You wonder how this could possibly be a good use of anybody’s time. Anyway, the question they ask you is: Which is your favourite colour?
After making a jump into hyperspace (which, admittedly, was pretty fun) the spaceship lands on a planet that looks a lot like Earth, except the oceans are orange and the sky is purple. You are taken into a building and sat down at a table, where a plate of very strange-looking food is placed in front of you. The aliens are encouraging you to eat it. What do you do?
After your plate is cleared away, a particularly well-dressed alien strides into the room. “I am the leader of this world,” the alien says proudly. But before you have a chance to respond, the alien falls unconscious to the floor. You are immediately surrounded by guards, who accuse you of killing their leader with telepathic powers. What do you do?
