Yea and then when it gets here download the info to a MG 1400 and it could be a Transformer!😂😂😂😂

That would explain Dusty's theory of why they have not been detected.

Alien AI Bot:  "Man I really screwed the pooch on this transformation!  No grease in the bearings and now I'm stuck in this shop for months waiting on parts.....  I can't wait to get off this planet and away from these idiots.  Space travel?  How about greasing your bearings!"

 Hard to detect something that isn't there .

We should probably look to the Mayans for advice on how to deal with shortages of gasoline and TP . Those folks had chronic shortages of both.

Are we talking about Aliens, UFO's, or grease in Moto Guzzi bearings here?

I very much recommend "The Demon Haunted World; Science As A Candle In The Dark" by the late Carl Sagan.

And while we are at it you would all probably find the following 2 podcasts fascinating "The Saucer Life" and "Extraterrestrial". The latter has ceased making new episodes but the old ones are brilliant.

And no, I dont mean The Old Ones.  :grin:

Here's another item in the news.  Former DNI says that can't figure out the UFOs. 

https://www.newsweek.com/former-dni-more-ufo-sightings-declassified-unexplained-1577595

Ratcliffe appeared to reference some UFO footage that had been released by the Pentagon in April 2020, and he explained the sources of some sightings. "Frankly, there are a lot more sightings than have been made public. Some of those have been declassified. When we talk about sightings, we're talking about objects that have been seen by Navy or Air Force pilots or have been picked up by satellite imagery that frankly engage in actions that are difficult to explain."

The former intelligence director also explained what activities the objects engaged in to receive their UFO titles, including "movements that are hard to replicate" or "traveling at speeds that exceed the sound barrier without a sonic boom."

Ratcliffe also said that officials seek plausible reasons for possible UFOs including weather-related disturbances or "whether or not our adversaries have technologies that are a little bit further down the road than we thought or that we realized."

I got up to make breakfast this am.  For some reason, I realized the UFO Thread hadn't been up too on WG for a while and was afraid it may have finally fizzled.  Thankfully it has not.

It's all starting to come together...

We've had no "good" hard data on extraterrestrials because they were not programmed into the simulation. Now that there is more and more talk and interest in them, even powerful influencers and government types bringing them up, the simulation programmers will have to add them in.

Dusty may even yet get his proof. Welcome to the new reality.   :wink:

Ok, let's take it a little further.   Will any kind of proof will be necessary for one of those ET individuals to join WG?  The bar wasn't at any special height for me, even though the rules were made clear.  No photo ID, proof of species, planet of origin, nada..     If one of those folks just shows up and posts an intro thread, is all good?

Then, maybe they'll post THE definitive Oil Thread....

Oops, my bad. I didn't consider them religious, just a whacky theory.  I'll rid them right away.

Thanks for the link. Very interesting. The claim they (UFO people) have the technology to replace fossil fuel and eliminate poverty in one generation!!!!! WOW. I can only hope this comes true in my lifetime. Yes I want to believe. Gives me great hope for the future.

We watched it last night.  Very interesting.

Did you note the alien body that was only about 6 inches tall? 

Other interesting comments were the head of Lockheed Skunk Works saying "We can already take ET home!"  IIRC, that quote was from 1955!  and the scientist(?) stating that if the multi-dimensional view of physics is true, our A-bombs and H=bombs may be causing more damage elsewhere than they do here!

I have a memory of a youth event that applies to this WONDERFUL thread, lol I have enjoyed.
When I was a youth of 12-13 I had the pleasure of getting to know a young Airman was had been assigned to the Radar Base which was build back in the early 60s in response to the cuban missile crisis and was a mile from our house. My Father ran into him at the local gas station one day and in conversation ask him if he would like to make a few bucks on Saturday to help us ďput in a barn of bacckerĒ. The young soldier agreed because he had never seen tobacco prior to coming to the south to serve his time in service.
On that Saturday morning we were standing at the end of the row waiting for Pap to get back with an empty sled to start another row. We used a mule to pull the sleds through the rows and Ole Big-un as my GrandPa called him was just standing there like us waiting and resting.
Carlton, the young mans name, looked over at me and jokingly said. ďDanny Boy, Iíll bet you your moon pie weíre having at break, Pap had announced prior that it would occur shortly, that I can put my mouth over Big-inís butt hole and blow the bit out of his mouthĒ
All the guys standing around got a big laugh and I refuse the bet because I didnít want to possibly lose my moon pie.
Later that evening when around the supper table I told my Dad about the day being enjoyable working with the young Airman and about the joke he had made.
Iíll never forget Dads response which brings us to the subject at hand.
Dad said..... Son one of the most important lessons in your life just happened, ďDonít believe NOTHING anybody tells and half of what you actually see and your life will run smootherĒ
And thatís where Iím at here👍😂😂😂

Pyramid-shaped UFOs spotted by Navy may be the best 'the world has ever seen,' filmmaker says

Iím sorry to be the one to revive this thread but for those of us NAYSAYERS, this one is hard to deny that there is definitely something out there thatís either unexplainable or truth is being withheld. There is simply too much EVIDENCE that there are vehicles that defy our current knowledge and understanding of flight.
Sorry Dusty I may be somewhat leaning to the dark side due to this latest report from the US Navy 🤔

 It's called "fakery" , been around since at least as far back as WW! . Sorry fellas , those blurry images are faked .

We should probably look to the Mayans for advice on how to deal with shortages of gasoline and TP . Those folks had chronic shortages of both.

 Why does anyone perpetrate a hoax , sometimes just for the amusement , sometimes for money , sometimes just because . Military personnel are still just people , get 100 of them together , a few will be pranksters , a few will be odd , and a few will be trouble .

Wait.  This was confirmed by the DoD, not just some errant Aviators.

This was plainly written in the linked story.

 What was confirmed , that some sailors had some video ? John , you worked with these folks for what , almost 30 years , do you seriously 100% trust that none of them would pull a hoax ?
