"On your last trip did you discover what the Earth people eat?"



I like the sound they make when they laugh.

Well, it's a start. (Of what, exactly, I don't know.)

The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Crank up the Tibetan music, break open a carton of strawberry ice cream, and pull up a chair. It's "UFO Coverup? Live."

The latest YouTube UFO clip



I like the way the UFO dances around its prey before snatching it. And yes, I think this is a hoax.

"What is oozing out of our ground?"



I found this on Boing Boing. It's the funniest fucking thing I've seen in a while.

Elaine Morgan on the Aquatic Ape Hypothesis



Whether you agree with Morgan's case for semi-aquatic human ancestors or not, her willingness to take on the scientific priesthood with sensible (if resolutely unpopular) questions is refreshing indeed.

Aldrin's "monolith"

Astronaut Buzz Aldrin's recent comment about a "monolith" on one of the moons of Mars has aroused considerable interest. What "monolith"? Is Aldrin implying that Mars' diminutive "potato" moons host a relic of intelligent manufacture?



Frankly, I very much doubt it. Aldrin is almost certainly referring to an anomalous (if most likely geological) feature on the surface of Phobos, the larger of Mars' two moons.

Discovered by independent Mars researcher Efrain Palermo, the "monolith" is an uncharacteristically tall, shadow-casting structure that awaits further exploration. Interestingly, this 2007 space news piece refers to the Phobos Monolith (as it's come to be called) as a target for a future mission. (The Phobos Monolith isn't to be confused with a similar feature photographed on the Martian surface.)

Shaking its thing

Say what you will, but I think this chunk of cyborg meat does a great Britney Spears impersonation.

Bobby McFerrin and "Close Encounters"

This video of Bobby McFerrin reminded me of the scene in "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" where Lacombe is coaching the UFO working group to converse in sign language . . .

Herbie Brennan on faeries

Here's an intriguing clip of author Herbie Brennan pontificating about the existence of faeries. Do "faeries" -- whatever their origin -- exist outside the boundaries of belief? If so, could we even begin to examine them using the instruments of empirical science?

Bear with me. This one's totally worth it.
