So picture this. Your sitting on your couch reading. When all the sudden you hear a thud in your backyard. You walk into the back only to see 3 green humanoids and a white capsule. what do you do? I would probably hug em and give them snacks.:D

Hopefully they will have used F5 before landing so I don't have to explain to the missus why her car is flat.

I'd boot up KSP, show them the game and say, "Ha! Humans made you! Therefore we have control over you! Now give us the secret to your rockets!" 

:D

Oh, you've had this happen to you too? 

My rear is still sore from their (and their probe's) last visit to me.

I'd quickly go find an oxygen supply, or else they'd have to breath the toxic, pollen-bacteria-dirt mixture in the air. And maybe find a way of bringing them sterilised snacks...

Poor creatures would have no protection against any earth bacteria.

I'd walk outside, quickly get a camera and then ask"how the hell did you guys get here!"

My standard extraterrestrial intelligence encounter procedure (in the event communication with other humans is not possible) goes like this: 

1. Ensure it is safe to approach

2. Show them our mathematical system in the hopes of communicating with them.

Ask them to take me back with them... if they are friendly. Maybe even offer them some homemade corn bread and some iced tea.

If they aren't friendly, see how they taste with a splash of barbecue sauce and cooked medium well... and take their space ship for my own...

Poke them with a stick. If they are responding (which means, not dead). I might hand them a note on said stick.

The expected:I sneak on the return craft, 'cause Kerbin is awesome, especially for eclipses

The reality: AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA...

Right, because they didn't make a gigantic fourth seat for a human. 

If they went to plant a flag in my yard, I'd turn my yard into a mini golf course. The KSP flag would be the 18th hole. I have two acres, I can chop down some trees, they'll all be knocked down when they blast off anyway!

Since it would be obviously Kerbals and they are visiting, well, me, I assume they do the introductions. If not I'll stare at them until they make a move. Sure I can hug them. And while I'm a brave man it would be bravely stupid.
They could have diseases, have ill intentions or kidnap me when being to assertively aproached by me.
I would probably look for a way to communicate properly first, then perhaps look for a physical aproach.

Fixed that for you :wink:

The smart thing to do would be to record a message of personal welcome but social warning, so they'd understand they better go before someone decides to cut one of them up "for science". Said message would need to be in reversed Spanish, of course. Hopefully they'd build a deep burrow real fast, or else they'd get rescued real soon.

Get a prescription for an anti-psychotic.  Or wake up.

Find a ladder to get them down because their capsule would probably be hanging from the parachute tangled in one of the many trees behind my house. Ask them what the secret is to their 100% efficient closed loop life support systems. And other stuff.

I'd invite them in and make them supper. Then I'd start up KSP and play it with them.
