Oh well. There's a Bigfoot special on the Travel Channel in 12 minutes, perhaps there will be stories there. The show is called "Weird Travels".

Since I don't have access to my own blog anymore and was thinking about shutting it down anyway as a failed experiment, here's some closure on my lifelong UFO mystery...

My Dad read my blog post and emailed me to tell me that he wasn't actually in the car (!) but remembers the family coming home all wound up after our UFO encounter. That really freaked me out because he features so prominently in my memory of the event that I have to question now how much if any of my memory was complete BS.

Anyway, my Dad threw out his theory that the "UFO" we saw was actually one of these, which would have been fairly new advertising tech at the time, and his theory makes such perfect sense - of course it was -- that I think I can close the book on my only brush with anything out of the ordinary in my life.

Hmmm---completely disavowing the veracity of previous accounts, to hazy childhood memories and once-unimagined, though now-commonplace technology, and sounds like someone got to Peter. Damn you, "vast government conspiracy designed to discredit the proof of life on other worlds"!!

I did a forensic reconstruction on a purported alien skull.

In all honesty after doing it, it changed some of my perceptions about certain things.

I will say this, a lot of the people in the UFO Community are nuts, liars and con men.

Then there's that percentage of people who are truly genuine.

I've seen some weird stuff in my lifetime. I even have video that I took. We all see strange things that we can't explain at some point in our lives.

Nobody should denigrate others for talking about what they've seen.

I still think our pal Fries is an alien.

UFOs = BS (you can't exceed the speed of light, so they can't get here, nor we there)
Bigfoot = probably BS (I think there'd be conclusive evidence by now)
Ghosts = BS
Loch Ness = Maybe BS, but probably dead by now if it ever existed
Sea Serpents/Krakens/etc. = probably not BS (the oceans are vast and we know less about them than we do about the surface of the moon)

That does not mean strange things don't happen. We just haven't figured out the rational explanation for them. Yet. Just my two cent.

I have had one experience I can't explain yet, and I wasn't alone when it happened, and at the time it really freaked both of us out. Someday I'll figure out what really happened.

C'mon man! You can't just say something like that and not tell us what happened!

Man, this thread is old! Glad you guys resurrected it, though. BS or not, my family has had a LOT of experience with the paranormal.

Regarding UFO's: My mom had an encounter of the first kind (a sighting) in late January of 1974. My parents had just moved to Cadiz, Spain so my dad could begin attending medical school. They rented an apartment that faced the beach for the first two months we lived there. One afternoon, my mom was watching the sunset over the Atlantic while I ran and played around next to her on the balcony. (I was shy of two, so I remember zilch.) As she waited for my dad to come home, she noticed two shiny flying discs hovering over the horizon.

My mom figured that nobody would believe her, so she ran to the hallway and found a girl who worked as a maid next door leaving for the day. Mom wanted a witness but played it smart, so she got my dad's binaculars, gave them to the girl and asked her: "Tell me what you see in the distance." And the girl went nuts, screaming "it's a pair of UFOs! My boyfriend doesn't believe in them!"

Both discs hovered over the ocean, then linked with each other and dropped straight down into the sea. My mom and the girl were freaked out and the girl kept saying "just wait until I tell my boyfriend about this!"

My mom told our doorman about it and he laughed it off. The next day, he was reading the newspaper as she walked out the elevator and he stopped her saying "Señora, look! You were right!" The headline in the paper for that morning was:

MULTIPLE UFO SIGHTINGS REPORTED ALL OVER CADIZ.

:shock:
