Unless you're a zombie or some carnivorous monstrosity that feeds on Hypothalamus glands. If you know anything about evolutionary biology, you know why Dr. Green's (Penelope Ann Miller) initial idea to kill the creature in The Relic would have worked. Of course, we're assuming you don't.
Put your knowledge of all-things that creep, slither and crawl to the test with the only movie monster survival guide/quiz book of its kind.

What will you do when they come for you?
Live and learn. Learn and live!

This, kids, is not a test. We repeat, this is not a test. Well, this is. That wasn't. The emergency broadcast system alert that aired shortly after the aliens arrival advised anyone who paid any attention to it to do what?

2. If a captain should go down with his ship, a sitting president should as well during a time of crisis, shouldn't he? President Whitmore (Bill Pullman) could have left the White House with his staff when one of the warships descended over Washington D.C. but there really wasn't a reason to. The aliens, up until that point, had shown no signs of aggression. The other reason being …

3. Cha-ching! Who am I? That's what I heard when thousands of people began fleeing Washington D.C. and New York City in an "un-orderly fashion."

4. Aliens traveling ninety-billion miles to annihilate mankind we can believe. Someone walking out their front door and not seeing a ship that fills the sky we cannot. That happened twice in the same chapter. First when Captain Hiller (Will Smith) went outside to get his morning newspaper and then again when the soon-to-be Mrs. Hiller (Vivica A. Fox) stepped outside. Try explaining that one.

5. That won't save you now, Marty (Harvey Fierstein). Nothing will. Ha, ha ha! That's our impression of an alien who learned how to speak English by watching too many bad movies. What
Independence Day
(1) Not to panic and to remain in their homes (2) It would have created a public hysteria. (3) The owner of any auto body repair shop (still standing) in those areas. Over 10,000 fender benders were reported shortly after the president urged people to remain calm. (4) He was still a little groggy. The jolt that did wake him up also kept his focus on the ground (he stubbed his toe). There's no explaining why Jasmine didn't notice the ship the second she walked out the door. (5) He was hiding under a desk (like that would have done any good) when he urged his mom to leave the city. Not that that would have mattered either because Atlanta, Chicago and Philadelphia were destroyed in the aliens' second attack.

(6) He was being taken away in handcuffs for papering City Hall with leaflets that warned of the aliens' intentions. (7) Through something we're quite familiar with; lights. Large panels were attached to the hull and the sides of a Skylift helicopter, aka Welcome Wagon. (8) A tie (9) They needed our satellites to relay their signal to each one of their ships, if you can believe that. (10) A presidential pen
(11) The satellites and the relay signal to each one of their ships took some time to coordinate.

She was struck in the abdomen when she started asking too many questions.
Roland Emmerich, 1996
would one of the aliens have been referring to if it uttered those words while he was on the phone with his mom?

6. Will the real Russell Casse (Randy Quaid) please stand (and shut) up. When a reporter asked two of his friends what he was like, they replied, "Keeps to himself, quiet (and) private." Really? Then what was all that shouting about in the scene that appeared prior to that one?

7. Play that funky music, white boy. Play that funky music right. No? Maybe that only works for close encounters of the friendly kind. How did a group of Pentagon officials try to communicate with the aliens before they started blowing every major city north, west, east and south of the Mississippi to smithereens?

8. Lots of people can say they've met a US president during his (or her) term in office, or know someone who has. We ain't one of 'em. If it's not due to a lack of influential friends or friends/readers in general, what could it possibly be? Wait, don't tell us, we know - our sarcasm and refusal to wear one of those things, right? It's what Julius (Judd Hirsch) wished he had the day he met the president.
9. While we're on the subject of smart-ass answers, you could say, "Falling off the edge of it," if we asked you what the curvature of the earth prevented the aliens from doing, but only we're allowed to do that. So give it to us straight, kids.

10. You survived an alien apocalypse and all you got was a lousy what? Wouldn't the first part be enough? If Julius got what he wanted while his son (Jeff Goldblum) was rummaging through the President's drawers, he would have been the proud owner of this. Not that or those kind of drawers you Silly Willie.

11. You know how we feel about having to wait so damn long to see the monster in any monster movie. It was almost an hour into this film before anything (or anyone) got blown up, "real good" as those with you-know-what for brains might say. They being anyone who didn't at least try to evacuate. Why didn't the aliens start blasting us to kingdom come the minute they got here?
All monsters could be defined as alien, but not all aliens are monsters - just the ones who want to eat us and/or eradicate mankind. Dr. Shaw (Noomi Rapace) did exactly what we would have done when she encountered the latter. She asked questions - as many as she could until someone decided enough was enough. We're not as easily silenced.
