It's official: Manila made history again at the biggest entertainment convention in the country, the annual History Con Philippines, held last August 10 to 13 at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.

During the event, we played 'Would You Rather' with three History Con 2018 guests: "Who Runs the World" host Yeoh Mong Chin, "Vikings" star Katheryn Winnick, and "Ancient Aliens" host Giorgio Tsuokalos.

"Who Runs the World" host Yeoh Mong Chin

Would you rather never use social media ever or never watch another movie or TV show again?

Mong Chin: This is hard you guys! Never watch a movie or TV show. Because I can watch YouTube!

Katheryn Winnick: I would love not to do social media. That's an easy one.

Would you rather be transported permanently 500 years into the past or 500 years into the future?

Katheryn Winnick: I would like to transport to the past, actually. I don't know why. I feel like I'm an old soul and I wanna explore that more.

Giorgio Tsuokalos: 5000 years into the past. Because then I could verify whether or not the stuff I'm talking about is real.

Would you rather be completely invisible for one day or be able to fly one day?

Mong Chin: Completely invisible for a day because flying is a little bit scary. Being completely invisible is kinda cool 'cause I can see what other people are doing and sneak up on them.

Katheryn Winnick: I would love to fly. I'm in awe of hawks. I just love the fact that they are so beautiful and they're gay. Sometimes I just stare at them for hours just to see them control the landscape and have their eye on the prey and scoop down and grab them and go back up.

Giorgio Tsuokalos: Fly one day. No questions. Yup!

"Ancient Aliens" host Giorgio Tsuokalos

Would you rather lose all of your memories or lose your ability to make new memories?

Mong Chin: I would rather lose all of my memories. Because new memories fall every day anyway.

Katheryn Winnick: I think I'd rather make memories. You shouldn't live in the past. You should always look forward.

Giorgio Tsuokalos: Wow. Because doesn't one preclude the other from happening? That's an impossibility. Well, look. I definitely don't wanna lose my memories from the past.

Would you rather visit an alien territory or be visited by aliens?

Mong Chin: Be visited by aliens 'cause I would rather be the majority.

Katheryn Winnick: I'd rather visit the alien territory.

Giorgio Tsuokalos: Go visit them, of course. That means I can go off-planet.

Would you rather have a very corrupt government or no government at all?

Mong Chin: Wow. I think it's the same thing. A very corrupt [government] is no government at all.

Giorgio Tsuokalos: Wow! Who are you ? These are great questions. I would have to say no government at all. Because corruption is never a good thing. But then again, I don't know. I don't know. Pass!

Would you rather be famous but forgotten when you die or unknown when you are alive but famous after you die?

Mong Chin: Unknown when I'm alive but famous after I die. Because that is a much longer-lasting legacy for me.

Katheryn Winnick: Famous is a funny word. I don't even know how to answer that. I think, to answer that, I hope to leave my mark, and I hope to leave it in a positive way, and I hope to be able to inspire girls from around the world to have a strong voice. If it's in my lifetime, great. If it's after I go, great. Either one works.

Giorgio Tsuokalos: The second one. By the way, these are all very unlikely questions.
