    USA would buy it then experiment on it and try to use it to create cheap energy, since it obviously can turn anything into energy. We'd feed it garbage and siphon electricity off of it.

    Man, this was timely. I was just last night watching a clip about the British Museum and its acquisition of antiquities.

    Australians would drop it in the middle of the desert, and know it would takes months before it reached a town. Then they'd promptly forget about it, and be totally surprised (months later) when it reached a town.

    In California we'd hand it a bong, feed it In-n-Out, and then have to figure how to resuscitate such a creature who's choking on smog.

    If The Thing made it to the mainland, then one of us would be a Thing by now.

    Here's a question for sci-fi fans: If The Thing took over all of Earth, and then the Borg came to Earth, would the Borg assimilate the Thing, or would the Thing assimilate the Borg?
