Have you been abducted by aliens?

Take this simple test to find out:
  1. Do you ever wake up paralyzed with a sense of a strange person or presence or something else in the room?
  2. Have you ever experienced a period of lost time -- an hour or more -- for which you could not remember what you were doing or where you had been?
  3. Have you ever felt that you had been flying through the air although you didn't know why or how?
  4. Have you ever seen unusual lights or balls of light in a room without knowing what was causing them?
  5. Have you ever found puzzling scars on your body and neither you nor anyone else could remember how you received them or where you got them?

Three out of five indicates a 60% probability of alien abduction. Four out of five is a 90% probability. Scored five out of five? You're an alien abductee! My score was 0 out of 5. The aliens don't like me. downer

The test comes from a 1993 survey conducted by sociologist Ted Goertzel, who found that 3.7% of his respondents qualified as "abductees." Goertzel was careful to note that he wasn't saying these people really were abductees. Instead he noted that the survey seemed to be "measuring a consistent phenomenon of some kind, but it tells us nothing about what it is that the scale is measuring."

But this distinction was totally glossed over by the National Enquirer who picked up on the survey and popularized it as an Alien Abduction Test. Extrapolating from the 3.7% response number, they concluded that 8 million Americans were alien abductees.

Definitely two out of five. Possibly three. Maybe even four...does a floating sensation equal flying?

And lost time? Yeah. Constantly at work. I look at the clock and it's barely 8:30am, next time I look it's midday, and I have no idea what I've been doing.

I've never woken up paralysed with the feeling of someone else in the room with me, though.

Six - three for me and three more for my imaginary friend.
