I've read the book in question, it's a strange old tale and one that suggests (to me anyway) some sort of human mind-control/manipulation. It is worth a read if anyone stumbles across it. I found the part with the dead mice very unsettling (one of the witnesses found a number of dead mice laid...
OK, hopefully this works after a couple of false starts caused by problems posting the images...
I found these tucked into a book about UFOs in a second-hand bookshop in the north of England a few years back;
In this picture, I'm not sure if he looks like God, gazing out at His universe in pride, or a stage magician pausing dramatically before correctly guessing which card the "volunteer from the audience" randomly picked.
Thanks for the info, Gordon!
Judging by this thread, it seems as though military intelligence people spend a lot of their time reading comics and watching 70s Doctor Who. I wonder if they're recruiting at the moment, I feel I have the perfect skillset for the role.
There Is a very similar story told about the designer of the Doctor Who serial The Sea Devils making a model submarine for the show and bring visited by military intelligence who suspected him of having access to secret plans.
I'll have to check, but I believe this story is told in an...
Eating a sweet chilli chicken thigh whilst listening to a podcast about Hitler and watching next door's cat fighting with a bee.
I am confident that that is the first time in history the above sentence has ever been used.
And as a wise man once said, hair are your aerials, they pick up signals from the cosmos and transmit them directly into your brain. This, he further posited, is the reason all bald men are uptight. Mmm.
The reason people vandalise stuff is because they are so unhappy and empty that they feel threatened when they see others doing something that provides them with genuine pleasure. These idiots should be tracked down (no pun intended) and given a good thrashing.
On a happier note, the well...
Today i bought the 1984 edition of David Attenborough's Life on Earth book, for 99p in the Salvation Army shop. I borrowed this book from my local library more than once back in the eighties.
A new edition has just been published, but the 1984 version just holds a nostalgic appeal for me...
I was thinking more of at least one tv appearance where he pooh-poohed the idea of ufos then rudely sniggered and mumbled while a fellow guest and ufo researcher spoke. It has been suggested he was a government shill asked to publically debunk the subject whenever he could.
They may or may not be obsolete these days (although I don't think anything so open-minded could ever be totally obsolete), but isn't the art gorgeous! Beautiful coloured-pencil drawings that haunted the dreams of many a youngster (me included).
Royal Babies. I honestly can't muster any interest in them at all. I find it more interesting to ponder where the KitKat wrapper that's just blown past my window will end up. (I think it'll drift down onto the railway line)
Great song, spectacular vocals from a great singer, video with some Fortean themes, and one of the greatest moments in music video at 3:25 where our hero shows us the most effective way to use a lightsaber.
Finished The Dreamland Chronicles by David Darlington earlier.
Starts off as a great read about the history of the Skunk Works, moved on into some interesting stuff about Bob Lazar, ends up as a catalogue of local oddballs and their strange behaviour. If I was to reread this, I wouldnt...
