...and Rob Ford. I guess they finally decided they like America, and want to be more like us.

Really? On what sample or evidence does he base this fascinating assertion?

To start, any aliens who can even *reach* us would be pretty much indecipherable to us - Any race or species willing to spend THAT much energy to visit other systems in a form that allows actual interactions and judgement-making is going to be completely outside the understanding of *this* short-sighted, selfish, but generally practical species.

Tell someone you love them today, because life is short. But scream it at them in Esperanto, because life is also terrifying and confusing.

Article also states that he claims that the Star of Bethlehem was "one of God's flying saucers".

Whatever drugs Paul Hellyer is on, stay away from them.


Someone ask the aliens about those animal/human mutilations and implants if you're abducted. What happened to their radios and why are they landscaping complicated Tetris levels in farm fields?~

Perhaps aliens really are that serious about their anal fetish... but to each their own, who am I to judge *shrug*

Do you know why Canada is more modern than the US, China and Japan combined?

Well because they've been living behind the moon for at least a hundret years. Big smile

So there I was flying accross the sky in a chariot of fire with Mr. Rodgers while waving at Mr. Belvedere. The candy cane soldiers were marching towards the dreaded sulferic acid rainbow when choclolate rain fell from the sky covering the heroin castle. Mario jumped out of a tube and began to make a run for it before the chocolate engulfed him and yoshi. Barak Obama was is a row boat throwing money into the sky while his wife acted as the rudder. A unicorn vladimir putin was riding speared the boat and caused it to sink while repeating the frase "Yippy kay yaay mother.." Brittany spears was watching it all from the beach made of bad intentions while sitting naked in a crush glassed filled dumpster. Ozzy Osbourn couldn't find sharon because his eyes were closed and his daughter kelly was spitting red tobacco and running around saying she was a gargoyle. Frosty the snowman was running to the castle when green peace arrived and sleighed him with a snow blower screaming about global warming.

As a gay man, I have always been puzzled as to the whole anal-probing aliens thing.

I mean, has there ever been a psychological study to determine if the prevalence of that idea is due to some kind of latent homosexuality in those (mostly men) who report this. Have they really been abducted, or are they mentally stuck in a psychogenic fugue, where this is a kind of "comforting situation" to them, as they "hide from reality" ?

The commonality of this story certainly hints towards this. Also, this is more often than not reported by a bunch of guys who went camping, accompanied by a LOT of alcohol..............anything can happen. Lol Mayhaps this nonsense is just a "cover story" for what really went on. Lol

He's about as credible as the politicians bleating about God, the greater good, and trickle down economics. So fairly normal for a politician.

Was waiting for that.

edit terrible Politics Joke Alert. How do you know that it's really cold? Politicians have their hands in their own pockets for a change.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.
