In light of approaching finals do you find yourself excogitating WTHHIBD (what the hell have I been doing) over and over, and wondering if your lost time may have been due to circumstances
beyond your control? While the vindicating qualities (obviously you would have been more productive if you hadn't been somebody else's science experiment) of this alibi are usually ephemeral, it is still curious to think is all this talk of sightings/abductions/misplaced keys just a hoax
, an elaborate cover up
, or some yin yang amalgamation of the two? Is the mystery surrounding Area 51
nothing more than conspiracy, (even if well positioned
)? To what extent are we inexorably skeptical or prepared to sort through the overflowing, spooky coffers of galactic mystery?

Aliens Loves Predator
— It's kinda like Seinfeld meets Evan Mather Star Wars videos meets online comic strip. Hey, "In New York, no one can hear you scream."

The grays, the mantises, the snake-skins, and the hybrids are just some of the aliens drawn by children at Aliens and Children
. To note: thought screen hats
will successfully prevent abduction by the mantis-like aliens, the servants of the mantis-like aliens, the snake-skinned aliens, and the Meek-Moks.

From the secret world of the "black budget"
comes the story of a man who wants to know the truth about the army's research into anti-gravity technology and zero-point energy ("There's enough energy in your coffee cup to evaporate the world's oceans many times over."
). Is he a lunatic
? A "Ufologist
"? Nope, he's an award-winning defense and aerospace reporter for Jane's Defence Weekly
, the highly respected magazine on international military and policy issues. In fact, he says, the loonies may be right! He thinks there probably are saucerlike flying objects, but they're not alien, they're made in the USA (who got the technology from the Nazi's - who else?). He even goes so far as to suggest that the CIA has a program to discredit people who see UFO's. I like my stories rich, and this one is very
rich. (via Atlantic Unbound

Cassiopaea Cult Lead By Cold War Physicist
This is a Florida cult that talks to aliens on a Quija board. The aliens warn the cult members that the rest of us are possessed by Lizards from another dimension. Anyway, the cult is lead by an old Cold War era high-energy physicist from Poland. Is it me, or should I worry that this kind of a person has a web site with Armageddon in the title bar? Also, the obligatory parody site is at 18.104.22.168

Have aliens answered our message?
In 1974, as part of the SETI project, an encoded message was sent from the Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico. On the 20th August, near the Chilbolton radio telescope in Hampshire, England, an amazing crop circle was discovered that appeared to answer the message....

Yes sir, that's my cloned alien baby!
I was concerned about this article from cnn about Clonaid going ahead with cloning a human. And then I found out Clonaid was stared by a religious group that believes ETs used genetic engineering to create life on earth. Legitimate news item or bad X-files script? (posted by Miss-Lapin)

Screen your thoughts for $35
"About 8 thought screens were made in early 1999 using a metalized plastic which is used in static shielding bags. Six users reported success but two users were overcome by telepathic commands, removed the helmets and were taken.
"In late 1999 and early 2000, nine new thought screens were made using Velostat shielding. All abductees wearing this helmet have not been taken while they were wearing it."

“Although I firmly believe that my panties abduction
was real, I have tried to be as broad-minded as possible and show as much integrity as I can in questioning myself and the whole terrible experience.”

The truth is out there -- way, way
out there. Masons, Mormons, and William Shatner all play a role in this secret history of the millennia-old struggle between three alien factions for control of Earth. The battleground: a vast subterranean complex known as Dreamland

We are not alone....
a new planet outside of our solar system was found today. It's only a matter of time before the little green men come down to greet us.
