You haven't thought this through. Real life is a lot scarier and more dangerous than what you see on Stargate.
Re-read my first post. I said:

So that being said. The only things that I would have to worry about would be the food and gravity. Then there is the matter of the species that would be on that planet. If there were to be any intelligent species on that planet that were friendly, then I would be ok. But if they were hostile, then I would be essentially screwed. So there you have it.

Click and Clack told a similar joke about what would you do it you found an alien device that would guarantee world peace forever:
A) Take it to the President
B) Take it to the UN
C) Take it to the Pope
D) Take it apart to see how it works.

Interesting thought experiment. I'm not sure how I'd react. Assuming the planet was safe - air, temperature, no space tigers about to eat me - I'd probably explore. I'd love to see what kind of technology another intelligent species might have (and if there's a way back to Earth, I'd love to bring their ideas by "inventing" them here. )

Oh, I'd also love to see what their nighttime sky looks like. Any cool constellations? Multiple moons?
