      By curing cancer, you also put millions of people out of jobs.

      A hover board really? Think about all the kids suffering from cancer. They would be sitting there looking at you with your hover board wishing they were you. Nobody likes people like you who don care about children with cancer. I hope you get cancer and see how it feels. This goes for everyone who picked the alien thing.

      Has anyone ever considered that the aliens have the cure to cancer? Also, if cancer is cured, there'd be plenty of jobs, since all the money would be going to hover board research and production. Also, the aliens might also give us other stuff light space manipulators to travel to faraway planets or time machines so that cancer wouldn't even had existed in the first place

      we're getting closer every decade to developing cures for cancers (there are over 100 different kinds so there wont be 1 cure for every kind) but SETI is a good 90 years from discovering aliens. Maybe they'll give us advanced technology or try to destroy us causing us to unify and nuke them

Millions have different jobs, clerk, manager, scientist... Scientist can't study how to cure cancer, but they have many other things to study. Shadowofdestruction. No, aliens dont have that technology. They aren't that smart... Badpuns101 No, the description said that aliens can't magically cure cancer for you. GABY You get cancer and die. For a hoverboard. It is already being developed. The creator's son already tested it out. Cindy You can't read the message. Okay, I'm done. Not answering these dumb questions no more.

      Because you're the expert on aliens, right? You know exactly how they'd act, based off of someone crazy person's stupid abduction story, which progressed to be a joke. Chances are, aliens won't probe you. If there ever was an alien species on earth who needed to probe a human for whatever reason, they would have abducted someone and done it. They wouldn't just fly around and probe everyone they see, you idiot.

    I'm sure something like a cure for cancer will become trivial within the next 100 years. I mean, if you go back a few years people would die from getting the common cold. Also, just look at something like penicillin. Alexander Fleming, anyone? And if, we were to make contact with an alien race, they would surely be the one's to contact us. And don't you think a race capable of travelling at the speed of light would have the technology to cure cancer faster than us?

    We're already over populated. Imagine even more people surviving. Global warming is not the only threat, people. Cancer can't grow into a problem that will kill everyone, overpopulation will. About the aliens.. I can't imagine how cool it'd be to make first contact. And it sounds like you are imagining them to be primitive creatures that only wish destruction. But if they're able to travel space efficiently, they must be intelligent creatures and it is unlikely they will just eat me.

    there's cures for cancer that just aren't profitable so they aren't used. very high doses of calcium and eating healthy (not hospital food) can cure even the worst cancer in months. And the side effects are that you feel a little nauseous and woozy. Sounds better than chemo. Also making alien contact will probably be the most important moment in history and you would be known for the rest of time as the person who started it.

    okay, you cured one cancer. good luck curing the rest. cancer isn't just one disease, nor is it easy to define what is and what is not cancer. by the time you figure out how to cure one type three more are going to evolve.

    How the hell did people pick cure cancer over making first contact?! Think about it. In two thousand years, which do you think will be more renowned: The man who cured a disease which appeared trivial compared to things like the bubonic plague and smallpox, or the guy who launched humans into a new era of living throughout the cosmos, interacting with hundreds of different types of aliens? Obviously the aliens. Mark my words, the man who makes first contact with aliens will be more well-known than the man who discovered electricity, the man who invented the computer, the man who invented the wheel, or even the man who discovered fire.

    Aliens could be hostile. Besides, cure cancer and people won't have to spend money on health. Enjoy money with something else and be healthy.
