    Is Roswell Finally Dead?

    That's the Cisco Grove Incident, which involved two entities and two robotic figures. There's a book about it called Aliens in the Forest, and Timothy Good also covers it in his book Alien Base.

    Abducted: The True Story Of Alien Abduction

    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...

    What Were You Doing Five Minutes Ago?

    A few years ago, Google Maps showed that I'd been to Turkey and back during the night. Either it was wrong, or I had a very extreme case of sleepwalking.

    Historic UFO Encounters: Newspaper Articles

    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;

    The Unbearable Strangeness Of Edmonds

    Quite an unexpected amount of swearing from the tidy-bearded one in that interview. Given the amount of fortean interests he appears to have, I wonder if he's a member here?

    The Unbearable Strangeness Of Edmonds

    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.

    Suspiciously Accurate Pop Media Items Attracting Official Inquiries

    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.

    Are you sure you didn't see Hitler eating a bee while a cat fought with a chicken thigh? It could be very easy to get mixed up.

    What Were You Doing Five Minutes Ago?

    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.

    Israelis Try New Crowd Control Method: Topless Women

    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...

    Stanton Friedman

    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.

    The Unexplained (Books) - Still Viable?

    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).

    Stanton Friedman

    I don't think he was either. Carl Sagan, though, in my opinion, toed the government line whenever he was asked to comment publically on ufos or alien life.

    Things I Don't Give a Rat's Arse About

    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)
