Well today is the day that Mr. Peckman is suppose to show his proof to the world that aliens exist. Unfortunately for the world only a select few can see the video because he made everyone at the press conference sign a confidentiality waiver. I will hold judgement until I see the video. There is footage out there (probably now on youtube) of the supposed footage, but this I know is CGI. It was made by this guy. And the video can be watched here. He wanted to create something similar to what was going to be shown today to show how easy it is to create something like this.
I have been following the live updates all day, and most of the excitement is over. Here are the details of what when on today.
-The film shows a window, reportedly 8 feet off the ground in a rural Nebraska town in 2003. It was shot by the homeowner, who had earlier reported seeing UFOs hovering above his house. This time, he said he set up a camera because he feared a peeping tom was spying on his two teenage daughters.In the enhanced version of the video, a creature pops up in the window, looks around, and pops back down, again and again.
-Randy Bancroft and fellow skeptic Bela Scheiber found it interesting that the creature was never seen from below the neck.
-Audience members wanted to know why the creature traveled all those light years just to peep in a window.
I have been told that Peckman will be on Larry King tonight, and will be presenting a still photo of one the aliens. I'm not positive about this, but its a good bet. However, I will be at a bar at that time watching the Celtics. But I am sure I will see it at some point.
Now I have no idea why I think this guys mugshot is funny. Maybe because I can't get Hootie and the Blowfish out of my head. Or maybe because this guy crawled underneath a table and squirted saltwater from a syringe on a women's shoes.
So I am reading a story in Boston.com and I'm not even sure what the purpose of this story is about, expect that this bitch is crazy. Don't get me wrong I love crazy bitches. I have a soft spot in my heart for crazy blondes, but this bitch might be the devil. Here are the highlights from the article.
BRENTWOOD, N.H.—A man who had a six-year relationship with Sheila LaBarre testified he has a vanity plate that reads, "I'm Alive," and recalled they would fight every day and that she attacked him with scissors, a knife, an ax -- even a gun. ---Vanity plate stating that you survived a relantionship with her.
Brackett, who dated LaBarre between 1996 and 2002, said Thursday in addition to those attacks, LaBarre also whacked Brackett in the face with a 2-foot-long wooden grill brush after they had taken a bath together, knocking out two of his teeth. ---Some rough foreplay.
Brackett, who lived with LaBarre at her Epping farm, said he was so desperate to leave, he hitchhiked through a blizzard to a homeless shelter in Portsmouth. He said the fights had grown so violent and he was afraid one of them might be killed. ---Sounds like the end of The Shining
Philip Sullos, who worked on LaBarre's farm several times a week, said he met Deloge and would often see LaBarre slapping him around. ---Redefining the term "bitch slap"
Sullos recounted one occasion when he saw LaBarre beat Deloge in her home with a hardwood stick until he was bleeding. Deloge didn't fight back but simply shielded himself with his arms, Sullos said. Another time, LaBarre opened a locked door to a windowless wood storage room, revealing to Sullos that Deloge was kept inside. Sullos said he didn't ask why he was in there and that Deloge made no attempt to escape. ---Good ol fashion kidnapping.
Brackett testified that LaBarre stabbed him in the head with a pair of cuticle scissors, chased him through a field with a knife and hacked her way into a camper Brackett was hiding out in with an ax during one of their many arguments. ---More of Jack Nicholson and The Shining
There were a few times LaBarre shot at him with a .38 pistol, bullets whizzing by his head, Brackett said. ---Good thing she is a bad shot.
Brackett was hesitant to categorize LaBarre as crazy, but did call her evil a few times on the stand. ---WHAT? Dude she is crazy.
And my favorite part. Stephen Martello of Manchester testified he picked up LaBarre alongside Interstate 293 in Manchester early on March 28, 2006. LaBarre told him her car had broken down after getting into a fight with her boyfriend and she needed to get to Dorchester, Mass., to meet with an attorney, Martello said.
Martello said the way LaBarre was clutching her purse and her overall strange behavior prompted him to call the Manchester police to ask whether they were looking for a robbery suspect or a woman who had escape from prison or a mental hospital.
Hearing from police they weren't looking for anyone, Martello took LaBarre to a hotel, where they had sex. Martello said that after having intercourse, LaBarre told him he had just had sex with an angel. She also began talking about discovering child pornography that belonged to her boyfriend. LaBarre claimed her boyfriend and all police officers were pedophiles and that "sex offenders must all die," said Martello.---So he called the police to see if she was a criminal, and when he found out she wasn't, he had sex with her. Then she bust out some child porn. Fucking classic!Stay away from those crazy bitches, they will end up killing you.
The photos were taken by global organisation Survival International, over one of the remotest parts of the Amazon rainforest in Brazil’s Acre state.
Survival’s director Stephen Corry said: "These pictures are further evidence that uncontacted tribes really do exist.
"The world needs to wake up to this, and ensure that their territory is protected in accordance with international law. Otherwise, they will soon be made extinct."
There are more than 100 uncontacted tribes worldwide, with more than half living in either Brazil or Peru.
So I first saw this story on the news this morning, and for the last few hours I couldn't get it out of my head that I have seen members of this tribe before. Hmmm... but where. Then in the crapper it hit. These are the douche bags oompa loompa's from New Jersey. Now the only photos from this tribe are aerial shots, so its tough to tell if they have a greasy product in their hair, but the orange skin color is uncanny similar. You be the judge. I am also wondering if the helicopter dropped a empty coke bottle on them.

So I have been digging around about this alleged alien video that is suppose to be released tomorrow. The videos were recorded by Stan Romanek from inside his home. The first video shows a alien looking through a outside window, the second shot moments later shows one looking through his kitchen window. They were both shot in nightshot so the quality with be argued instantly. But I guess the alien is a yellowish color.
Now on to Stan himself, by looking at his website there are a lot of interesting items there. The pic in this thread is from there. But it seems Stan has been around for a while now. Back in 2003 Rense posted some of his equations that related to time and space equivalency. What the equations mean, I have no idea. Maybe over the weekend when I have time I will look more into them.
I still think this is a money making scam, but I am interested in what this guy's got.
LEBANON, Maine -- Two teenage girls lying on a train trestle were seriously injured Wednesday when they were hit by a freight train.
Now I never want to bash anyone that died or got really hurt, but I am human, and sometimes I have to. Sunbathing on railroads tracks is high on my list of places where I would never lay out. But there are a couple other places that rank higher than railroad tracks.
Tibet uprising march
Hippo bathing area
Any place with those sand flies
In related news the MBTA green line crashed again killing one person.
A video that purportedly shows a living, breathing space alien will be shown to the news media Friday in Denver.
Jeff Peckman, who is pushing a ballot initiative to create an extraterrestrial affairs commission in Denver to prepare the city for close encounters of the alien kind, said the video is authentic and convinced him that aliens exist.
"As impressive as it is, it's still one tiny portion in the context of a vast amount of peripheral evidence," he said Wednesday. "It's really the final visual confirmation of what you already know to be true having seen all the other evidence."
When Peckman went before city officials this month to discuss his proposed ET initiative, he promised to show the video.
Peckman said the public will have to wait to see it because it's being included in a documentary by Stan Romanek, a Colorado native who has reported UFO sightings.
"No one will be allowed to film the segment with the extraterrestrial because there is an agreement in place limiting that kind of exposure during negotiations for the documentary," he said.
But people won't have to wait too long to see it for themselves. "There is an open, public meeting in about a month in Colorado Springs," Peckman said. "We'll hope to do one in Denver at some point, and then in a few months, there will be the documentary that anybody can have, and it'll have the footage."Well well well. Mr. Peckman says he has a video of a live alien. I am calling bullshit right now. I have seen guys like this a thousand times. He is only looking to make a buck. If someone actually had a tape of a alien they would be visited by a government agency, long before this story would ever hit the press. But I'm in a good mood, so instead of belittling this for being a douche, I will wait until tomorrow.
A ROADSIDE toilet stop ended in pain, embarrassment and almost death for a tourist when a highly venomous snake bit the end of his penis.
Well I sort of have been on a penis binge lately. And I am going to try and stop, but I just couldn't let this one slide. What a lucky bastard. No, not that he was bite in the unit. But that the snake didn't envenomate him. Is envenomate a actually word? Brown snakes are one of the most deadly snakes in the world. Its a miracle that this snake didn't inject its venom. My guess is that it either just ate, or that the snake wasn't really threaten by the guys penis. Since brown snakes eats other snakes, this guys penis was not on the menu that day.
Here is a picture of debris that was recovered. I'm no aeronautical expert so I have no idea what this could be. But lets review the known facts:
-Something was blown out of the sky
-No noise was heard until the explosion
-A long smoke trail was seen in the sky.
-The Russian navy is reporting that US Navy ship Diego Garcia shot it down with a missile. Which happened to be about 2500 miles away at the time.
-The Chinese government launched a weather satellite that same day called the Fengyun-3A.
Could this be just the boosters from the Chinese satellite? But if it was, they really aren't suppose to explode while descending. And I am sure the Chinese government would have some comment if that happened. This story just gets weirder and weirder.
Wednesday, May 28, 2008
Wow, this freaking bizarre. The Russian navy is saying that the object blown out of the sky was the the cream of the crop of the United States top secret military projects, the Aurora. The US government has denied that the Aurora even exist. And now its possible that we blew up. This is a top shelf breaking news story, that will never ever hit the news stands. I'm positive this story will have most twists to it.
A while back I wrote about how Africa is fucked up. Apparently passengers in taxis were shrinking men's penises. Now this story.
IN Nigeria things are happening.
Motor bike Taxi drivers from Gwagwalada, a small locality close to Abuja in the middle of Nigeria, have gathered to protest against a client they accuse of using pigeons to steal penises.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the suspect’s last victim is a 35 year old Motor Bike Taxi driver named Musa Abubakar. The suspect denies all accusations.
Abubakar claims Mohammed Ma’aji had stolen his “family jewels” with the help of a white “spiritual pigeon” hidden in his bag.
This spiritual pigeon was wearing a small black tie around its neck.
“I drove this man to three different places. On our way back to our point of departure, he squeezed his legs tightly around me which made feel sick and weak immediately. I therefore stopped riding to have a look in my trousers and it was gone!”
It went from men with gold rings shrinking penises to pigeons wearing neck ties stealing penises. How crazy are these people? I know no one wants to admit that they have a small penis, but really a pigeon wearing a tie.
What if this was true. What if pigeons were flying around stealing men's penises. This guy (see below), the infamous pigeon guy that hangs out at Downtown Crossing defiantly would not have a penis. Or actually maybe he would have a lots of them, made the pigeons would bring him penises that they steal. Could this guy may not be a fruit after all. I'm going to keep my eye on him.
VietNamNet Bridge – An unidentified flying object exploded at about 10a.,m on May 27 over the northern part of Phu Quoc Island, off the coast of the southern province of Kien Giang, according to Col. Nguyen Van Qui, military chief of the island district.
Many local residents found many grey metal pieces, including a 1,5m long piece.
The island district authorities quickly contacted airline companies in Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, but as of 10p.m. the day, none had confirmed any of their flights having faced accidents.
The explosion happened at about 8km above the ground, and perhaps it was a plane, but authorities could not identify whether it was a civil or military aircraft.
The Phu Quoc Island People’s Committee mobilised local armed forces and residents to rescue duty.
Well this story perked my ears this morning. I'm sure a lot of people are interested in what is happening over Phu Quoc Island. The Vietnamese government will probably keep a tight wrap around this whole situation. At the moment they are saying that it was probably their plane that exploded. Smells fishy, wouldn't they know if they lost a plane. But they need to put a spin like this on, because they don't want to lose face by saying something evaded their airspace. The US does it all the time. I hope to have more updates soon. But here is another source that goes into a little more detail about the explosion.
Hanoi - A large unidentified flying object exploded over an island off southern Vietnam, and local officials said Wednesday they suspected it had been a military or civilian aircraft.
The explosion occurred Tuesday morning above Cua Can commune on Phu Quoc, a large island belonging to Vietnam just off the coast of Cambodia, according to Ngang Van Truyen, chairman of the commune.
"It was a huge explosion, and we thought at first that it was thunder," Truyen said. "But then we saw a 100-metre-long smoke trail in the sky and knew that it was the explosion of a flying object."
Truyen said people in the commune found six pieces of aluminum-like metal painted yellow-green on one side. The largest piece is more than 1 metre long and 50 centimetres wide. However, no markings or letters are found on the pieces.
"One of the pieces pierced the metal roof sheet of a house in the commune, but no one was injured," Truyen said. "We are searching the area to see if there are other pieces, or even bodies."
According to a military official of the district, who requested anonymity, there were no military planes operating in the area at the time of the explosion.
"We haven't identified what it is, but we suspect that it is a plane," the official said. "It could be either a military plane or a civilian plane, but I don't think it's a flying saucer."
According to Ngang Van Truyen, the metal pieces are curved, and no noise had been heard before the explosion.
Several of Vietnam's government-controlled newspapers Wednesday reported the incident, but none had any further information on the object, which suggests that it was not a Vietnamese military aircraft.
Recent accidents involving Vietnamese military aircraft, including the crash of a light transport plane in April that killed five pilots, have been openly reported in the Vietnamese press. (dpa)

I freaking hate rain. I really freaking do. But since walking is my main form of transportation, I accept and embrace walking. Not today. The first summer thundershower is about to hit us. And I am totally not ready for the elements. If I didn't have to walk home and then walk a dog, I would have no fucking problem with this shit. But for the last two hours I have been stalking the sky, this shit is going to rain the moment I step outside of my office. The weather bitches are predicting 50mph winds, hail, and lightening. There are only two things I fear on this planet, and lightening is one of them. Put me in a tank of killer sharks, lock me in a haunted house, or let my fly in plane with broken landing gear, I will take any of those options over walking outside in a lightening storm. My reasoning... I have some bad luck when it comes to stuff like this and I am over due for a lightening strike.
Anyone involved in a shark attack would be considered unlucky – but few could claim to have been as luckless as Sam Hawthorne.
The teenager survived a terrifying ordeal when he was bitten in the face by one of the killer beasts – in his own bedroom.
The 'attack' happened when the 14-year-old sleepwalked into a long-dead souvenir shark hanging on the wall of his nautical-themed room.
Jaws struck in the middle of the night at the family home in Dudley, West Midlands.
Mrs Hawthorne was woken by her son's screams but arrived too late to fend off the deadly fish – a holiday souvenir.
'The shark must have been embedded in Sam's cheek for about 15 minutes and he was in a lot of pain,' she said.
Fortunately, Sam escaped with just a small scar. 'It was the most frightening experience of my life,' he said.
I have never witnessed someone sleep walking before, but if this kid got bite by a shark while sleep walking I am surprised that there is not more deaths associate with sleep walking. Or at least funny incidents like this one.

KANSAS CITY, Missouri (Reuters) - A Missouri car dealer said on Thursday sales have soared at his auto and truck business since launching a promotion this week that promises buyers a free handgun or a $250 gas card with every purchase.
Max Motors, a small Butler, Missouri dealership that has as its logo a grimacing cowboy wielding a pistol, has sold more than 30 cars and trucks in the last three days, far more than its normal volume. And owner Mark Muller credits his decision to start offering buyers their choice of a $250 gas card or a $250 credit at a gun shop.
"This thing has taken off. Sales have quadrupled," said Muller. The store sells both used and new vehicles including General Motors and Ford products.
Every buyer so far "except one guy from Canada and one old guy" has elected to take the gun, Muller said. Muller recommends his customers select a Kel-Tec .380 pistol.
"It's a nice little handgun that fits in your pocket," he said.What the fuck is wrong with people. With gas prices so high and every person is bitching and moaning about them, people are picking a guns over gas. I am pretty sure most people in Missouri already own at least three guns. How else will they hunt for their dinner. Here is my suggestion for the people in Missouri. Free guns to anyone that would like to be sterilized. Its a free gun how can they say no.
The Northern Territory president of the Australian Medical Association says he may have accidentally discovered how the potentially deadly salmonella bacteria gets into eggs. Dr Peter Beaumont was cooking when he discovered a tiny dead gecko between the inner shell and the membrane of a chicken egg he cracked open. He believes the discovery is a world first and has handed the egg shell over to health authorities, who will look for the presence of bacteria in the yolk and try to work out how the gecko got into the egg. Dr Beaumont sid he suspects the gecko entered the chicken before it entered the egg.
Well this is completely bizarre. Reminds me of the Simpson episode when Bart kills a mother bird with Nelson's BB gun, and then raises the eggs. Only to find out when the eggs hatch there are actually lizards inside. Skinner tries to kill the lizards because they are outlawed, but Bart lets them escape. The lizards end up eating all the pigeons and Bart becomes a hero.
I can safely say I never got a lizard in my eggs, but growing up I use to live next to a egg farm. We use to get our eggs directly from the farm. Every once in awhile we would crack an egg and find a partly mature chick inside. That was sort-of gross, but finding a lizard is much more worse.

All week I have been walking around with a limp because I pulled my groin muscle somehow. How I did it, I have no idea. But I think I might have did it during a romp between the sheets. I was fine before I met that girl in the bar, then shortly after I am limping. But it could have also occurred when I made a mad dash to to escape that same girl early that morning.
I once dislocated my shoulder during sex. Well actually it occurred during foreplay. But after I popped it back in, I sucked it up and continued.
This has got me thinking about sex injuries. What are the most common and what are the worst.
Blue Balls: This is pretty common. Well at least for me. This can be quiet painful, but easy to resolve. Pain factor 6/10.
Fingernail marks: Scratches usually will heal in about a day or so. Making them one of the more acceptable sex injuries. One of the few types of sex injuries you wouldn't mind showing off. Pain factor 2/10
Leg cramps: Ya, this has happened to me. Twice. All of a sudden you start screaming in agonizing pain. The girl thinks she is doing something good, but when you are quickly on the floor trying to message it out she realizes something is not right. Pain factor 8/10
Suction Marks: AKA hickeys. These don't really hurt they are just embarrassing. Specially having them after high school. Pain factor 1/10.
Bite wounds: Mark of the kinky, as I like to call it. Can be very dangerous. Human mouths are filled with bacteria and lead to nasty infections. Always a tough one to explain to the doctor.
Pain factor 6/10.
Rug burn: Ouch! Who hasn't had these. If not treated properly can lead to scarring. More of a problem with women than for men. Pain factor 5/10.
Sore penis: This happens during most prolong sessions of intercourse. Somebody makes a wrong turn somewhere and your unit didn't want to go there. Usually leads to some soreness or bruising. Will heal in a day or two. Pain factor 6/10.
Injuries testicle: Sometimes your boys get twisted, and boy do you feel it. Extreme pain and nausea will usually follow. Will always require a time out period. Pain factor 9/10.
Penile fracture: Every man's worst nightmare. Not only for the pain that will occur but for the embarrassment factor of going to the ER and explaining what is injured to a nurse. I know, because I had a friend who accidental slammed his balls while shutting his dresser, and had to go to the ER for that. By far the worst sex injury 10/10

|No. 9 Park||Boston||64|
|Doyle's Cafe||Jamaica Plain||73|
First up they have No 9 Park St. Now if this bar wasn't on the list I would say its not a bad list. But seriously No 9 Park St is on the list of best bars? Any bar in which you can't wear sneakers or look out of place without a sports jacket on shouldn't be on the list. I live about 30 yards from this place and not once have I ever had a urge to go there. May be the worst pick out of all the bars on list.
Eastern Standard: I like this bar a lot. Spend a lot of time there. My only complaint is that its a bar inside of a restaurant, and the bar space isn't too big. Can get overly crowded in a hurry. Specially if the Sox's are in town. They have good selection of drinks and good bartenders.
Doyle's is pretty good. I don't get down to JP much, but every time I have been to Doyle's I have had fun. But I am not sure if it belongs on the list.
Charlies Kitchen made the list? I am surprised to see two Cambridge bars on the list. With so many bars in Boston this ones seems a shocker to me.
The B-Side is a good place to start the night. Since I work in Cambridge I hit this joint up a lot.

A man who dressed up as Darth Vader, wearing a black garbage bag for a cape, and assaulted the founders of Britain's first Jedi church has been given a suspended sentence.
Arwel Wynne Hughes, 27, attacked Jedi church founder Barney Jones - a.k.a. Master Jonba Hehol - with a metal crutch, hitting him on the head, prosecutors told Holyhead Magistrates Court in Wales. He also whacked Jones's 18-year-old cousin, Michael Jones - or Master Mormi Hehol - bruising his thigh, in the March 25 incident.
Unfortunately for Hughes, the incident was recorded on a video camera that the cousins had set up to film themselves in a light saber battle.
I am the first one to admit it, but I am a Stars War geek. I can watch all 6 movies at anytime. There are some l like better than others, but they all are great.
But I think I draw the line in joining the Jedi religion. Even though I should since the Force is strong in me. I can't believe that there is 390,000 people in the UK that claimed Jedism as there religion. Besides filming themselves in light saber battles I wonder what else they do?
I guess every once in a while they do have to battle evil Sith Lords, like this guy in the article. I can't believe that the Jedi church actually pressed charges on this guy that attacked them. Isn't this what they dream about? Anyways, I'm still searching for this video of this incident.

Urban affairs reporter
Tearful driver Patty Ryan vowed to slow down as she hugged the young woman she had just "killed" on an Oshawa street.
"Did you know you were speeding and have struck me dead?" Felicia Petric, 16, told her moments earlier. "I had many plans for this life and I can feel them all speeding away."
Ryan, who had been doing 63 km/h in a 50 zone, was one of 63 motorists lectured by high school students yesterday in an innovative approach to deterring speeders by Durham Region police. Drivers pulled over in a speed trap had a choice of getting a ticket (with a minimum $90 fine) or listening to a one-page essay by teens waiting nearby. Only one opted for a ticket.
"This is a damn good idea," said Ryan, dabbing at her eyes. "It really touched me. It can save a life."
The essays were assigned to students in the Grade 11 law class at Monsignor Paul Dwyer Secondary School, located near the high-collision intersection of Rossland Rd. W. and Stevenson Rd.
The idea was to teach safe driving principles to both drivers and students, who included statistics, consequences of bad driving and personal tales in their messages delivered at a mobile command unit.
What? So let me get this straight. You speed and you get a lecture by a Catholic school girl? Am I missing something here. This doesn't remotely sound like any type of punishment. I wouldn't be surprise if this increases speeding of men between the ages of 16-64. I wonder how many men also asked to be spanked.

A man tried to kill himself with a wood chipper in Roseville Thursday afternoon.
The crew of a tree repair service company was clearing trees in a public area when the man appeared and jumped head-first into the industrial-sized wood chipper.
The workers immediately turned off the machines and called 911.
The man was rushed to Regions Hospital in St. Paul where he remains in the intensive care unit. Officials say he suffered severe, life-threatening injuries to his head and torso.
Roseville Police said the incident was likely a suicide attempt, noting that the man did not leave a note or any indication of his intentions.
While 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS does not normally report suicides, the incident was in a public area. In fact, a hardware store’s surveillance camera may have captured the event on tape and police will review the video.
Police reported that the man is 19 to 21-years-old, but no other information has been released.HA HA HA HA!!! I can't think of a funnier way to try and kill yourself and not die. I am wondering if this was premeditate. All day was this guy thinking I am going to hop in the chipper and get it over with. Or maybe he was just walking by on the way to a tall building and was just saving time. Whatever the case this may be the worse botch suicide ever!
These bizarre pictures were snapped by a baffled Sun reader, known only as Roberta, who spotted the object in the skies above Golders Green, North London on May 7.
Now to the picture itself. Is it me or does this look identical to the sentinels in the Matrix.
Personally I think it looks like a box jellyfish.
I am pretty sure these pictures are fake, and convinced the Sun will publish anything to sell papers.

So this guy Pete Doherty was dating Kate Moss. Kate Moss one of the most beautiful women in the world. I just don't understand the whole dating game. You either have to be a dirtbag or a douche to date a hot chick. That is why I stay clear of the game.
Monument to 'drunken pig'to go up in Ukraine
KIEV, May 15 (RIA Novosti) - The town of Komsomolsk in central Ukraine is to erect a monument to a 'drunken pig,' the national UNIAN news agency reported on Thursday.
The monument, which portrays a pig lying on its belly with its snout in a trough, will be installed near a local cafe.
"This monument symbolizes those people who make pigs of themselves by drinking far too much," said Oleg Ryabo, the local sculptor responsible.What can I say but I am honored. Finally a place where people can get shitface make complete fools of themselves and don't have to worry about social backlash. And people say America is the greatest country in the world.

THE British government recorded reports of alien craft flying over Liverpool and a UFO hovering over Waterloo Bridge in London, declassified files show.
The files have been opened for the first time, detailing hundreds of sightings of unexplained objects in the skies over Britain.
They show that the Ministry of Defence was less worried about the possibility of visitors from outer space than in checking that Unidentified Flying Objects were not in reality evidence of covert spying missions mounted by other countries.
Nick Pope, who was responsible for investigating the sightings at the ministry, said: "While there's no evidence of little green men in these files, they should be of immense interest to sceptics and believers.
The Brits are opening up their UFO files. Well on the outside this sounds nice, but don't be surprised not to see anything too juicy. In no way shape or form does a major government want disclosure out there. The only reason why they are letting SOME information out, is because of the recent Freedom of Information Act of 2000.
Overall there has been a global shift in UFO thinking by governments. Just not in the US. The French opened their UFO files not to long ago. The Brazilian government has released files on their knowledge of UFOs.
But the one that I find the most shocking is that the Vatican recently came out and said that it is OK for Catholic's to believe in UFOs.
VATICAN CITY — There could be alien life forms and believing they exist isn't contradictory to having faith in God, the top astronomer at the Vatican said in an interview published Tuesday.
In the Vatican newspaper piece, titled "The Extraterrestrial Is My Brother," the Rev. Jose Gabriel Funes said the expansiveness of the universe means there could be life on planets other than Earth.
"In my opinion this possibility exists," Funes, the director of the Vatican Observatory, told L'Osservatore Romano. "Astronomers believe the universe is made up of 100 billion galaxies, each of which consists of 100 billion stars. ... Life forms could exist in theory even without oxygen or hydrogen."
This is quiet perplexing to me. Why would the Catholic church come out with this. They and any other religion would have the most to lose if disclosure is made available. Just think of the chaos that would occur all over the world if people realize that their religion is a hoax. That their beloved gods and prophets were nothing more than visitors from another planet.
Just about in any religion there are UFO connections. For example when Moses went to the top of Mt. Sinai he saw glowing lights that illuminated the sky. A quick search on youtube can probably show you the same lights that Moses saw. But the person who shot the footage was no prophet, just some redneck with a cell phone camera.
I go back and forth if disclosure is a good thing or not. As I stand right now, I don't think people can handle the truth. As much as I hate to admit it, I think the government is doing the right thing hiding the truth. Because its not as simple as saying there is other life out there. In fact the truth is much more deeper.

Lars-Olof Corneliusson, the former commander of a Swedish amphibious military unit based near Stockholm, is accused of trying to cover up an incident in which new conscripts fired shoulder mounted artillery cannons while in the nude.
Every battle has rules of engagement, which dictates when and what force will be used. After reading this article it shows the Swedes like to fight naked. No body wants to fight men that are naked.
When I was in college my roommate was at a house party. He ended up having beef with some guy that was there over something really stupid. I think it was over because he wasn't wearing shoes. So they both agreed to go outside and fight over it. They were really civil about it, no yelling or scream before hand. They calmly walked outside and they both agreed to bring one friend to watch.
What happened next stunned my friend. This guy took off his pants and under ware. So this guy is wearing nothing but a t-shirt. Obviously my roommate didn't want to fight a half naked guy. For good reason, you don't want to be rolling around with a guy your trying to hurt and have his junk rubbing against you.
After a little pleading to put his pants back on, my roommate just gave up and knocked him out and went home. So I think the Swedes might be on to something here if they are trying to avoid future conflicts. Just be weary of big Russians.

So I haven't owned a car for the last few years, and through out that time I use the MBTA as my main form of transportation. I usually stick to the red and green lines, but I travel on all of them at some point or another. Here are some quick observations I have made being a "T" rider.
My favorite conductor quotes:
“This train has been re-routed.” This means that your fucked. Your on a train going to a place where you want to go, and instead your going to some far off place. That will probably require a couple of different trains to get you to where you want to be.
“This train will be standing by for two minutes.” This usually means that the train in front of you broke down in the middle of the track. If this happens at a stop, they leave the doors open so that 2 million people can squeeze into each train. However, its funny watching people run to the train, because they think its about to leave.
“Step all the way into the back of the train, people." This means that people on idiots and don't know how to properly board a train. Get in and go to the middle. Or some douche is holding the door open.
Classifying MBTA riders:
Pole riders: These are the people that refuse to move away from a pole. There could be 1000 people waiting to get on to a empty train, and these people will not budge from letting go of the pole. Everyone will have to bump into them, because they are not letting go.
Middle seat grabbers: Proper riding protocol dictates that if there is three available seats you do not sit in the middle one. This will allow another person to sit in the other seat with a one seat buffer between both of you. These are the lowest form of T riders.
Paranoid jumpers: These are the people that are sitting down and stand up before the train comes to a full stop. Usually results in them going herky jerky when the train does stop. Look when the door opens get up and leave the train. You are not going to miss your stop.
Oncoming traffic jerks: These douches try and go against the grain and board trains when everyone is trying to get off. It is OK to elbow these people in the stomach.
Cleavage girl: These are women that wear outfits where their sweater puppies are busting out. On packed trains it is almost impossible not to stare. Specially if you are sitting down and I am directly over you. Do not give me that look of disgust when I am caught staring. I wasn't the one that dressed you in the morning.
MBTA police: The highlight for these guys is when they do random bag checks. Other wise I have never seen them do anything else but direct traffic in front of the Charles St T stop.
MBTA worker: Even since they got rid of the token seller, I have no idea what these people do. I think they just stand there and drink Dunkin Donuts. I have been kicking a Charlie Pass machine because it would not sell me my ticket, and they wouldn't even ask if I needed assistance. I am kicking the fucking machine, maybe that is normal to them.
MBTA train drivers: Don't know too much about these folk. Occasionally you can get a peak through the curtain and watch them drive. Seems like a boring job.
