UFO's for real?!?

We have to remember that UFO means Unidentified flying object. I throw a rock and you cant make it what it is = Unidentified flying object. And the theme is the same as in all of the shows where experts and "experts" give their account on what happened. Speculation and few "convincing" picture.

I suggest some reading.

Carl Sagan - The Demon-Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark

I myself just bought

Seth Shostak - Confessions of an Alien Hunter: A Scientist's Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence

Amazon.com: Confessions of an Alien Hunter: A Scientist's Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (9781426203923): Seth Shostak: Books

Both are (Sagan was) REAL scientists.

I agree, which is what made this report/book/show catch my eye. These are pretty serious people, pilots, scientists, politicians, who have everything to lose by talking about such a subject, but still do.

There are some serious scientist who are on the other side of course, such as the late John E. Mack, as a clear example:

From wikipedia:

In 1994, the Dean of Harvard Medical School appointed a committee of peers to confidentially review Mack's clinical care and clinical investigation of the people who had shared their alien encounters with him (some of their cases were written of in Mack's 1994 book Abduction). In the same BBC article cited above, Angela Hind wrote, "It was the first time in Harvard's history that a tenured professor was subjected to such an investigation." Mack described the investigation as "Kafkaesque": he never quite knew the status of the ongoing investigation, and the nature of his critics' complaints shifted frequently, as most of their accusations against him proved baseless when closely scrutinized. Because the committee was not a disciplinary committee, it was not governed by any established rules of procedure; the presentation of a defense was therefore difficult and costly for Mack.

Amid the public revelation of the existence of the committee, there were growing questions from the academic community (including Harvard Professor of Law Alan Dershowitz) regarding the validity of Harvard's investigation of a tenured professor who was not suspected of ethics violations or professional misconduct. Concluding the fourteen-month investigation, Harvard then issued a statement stating that the Dean had "reaffirmed Dr. Mack's academic freedom to study what he wishes and to state his opinions without impediment," concluding "Dr. Mack remains a member in good standing of the Harvard Faculty of Medicine." (Mack was censured for some methodological errors.) He had received legal help from Roderick MacLeish and Daniel P. Sheehan (of the Pentagon Papers case)[5], and the support of Laurance Rockefeller, who also funded Mack's Center for four consecutive years at $250,000 per year.[6]

Of course, Dr. Mack field was about abduction rather than UFOs.

I'm a contrarian by nature, so finds the notion pretty intriguing.

Plus, I agree with dcostello's sentiment, wouldn't be pretty fucking cool!!

edit:

And who can refute the clear logic of John Hodgman:

    • I was prepared for my knee ditch to be a tough spot to heal. I was not prepared for it to get INFECTED! Ugh. Fortunately, I sought medical care as soon as something seemed amiss: abnormal redness around the tattoo about a week out from getting it done, and the worst tattoo itchiness I’ve ever experienced (I actually thought I’d gotten a mosquito bite ON the fresh tattoo at first.) I’ve been on antibiotics for a few days and it hasn’t drastically improved, but the itchiness has subsided and at least it doesn’t appear to be getting worse. And the tattoo still seems to be healing normally. Not sure where I went awry with this healing as I babied this tattoo more than any of my others. I only washed twice a day instead of three, but I also wasn’t leaving the house at all and had it exposed to air almost constantly. *shrug* I emailed my artist and the shop just to give them a heads up, which I felt kind of weird about but they should know, right? I don’t actually think I picked this up at the shop, but couldn’t hurt for them to give everything a nice once over with disinfectant, yeah? Anyway, this first picture is some mild redness, the second is the worsening redness one day later that prompted me to go to urgent care. The second is a couple days later. Looks about the same currently…really hoping to see more significant improvement soon.  
    • Hi there! So I just got two tattoos last night, one on top of each other. The one on the top seems pretty normal to me, it’s red and is a little uncomfortable like any other tattoo, but the one below that one is more red, has some bruising it looks like? The skin is tighter and it stings a little bit more than the one above it. Now I don’t know if it’s because of the placement, because maybe that one was more over worked than the other one? I know it is still very new and fresh, but my other tattoos have not reacted this way but I’m wondering if maybe because it’s in my arm? And the stinging feeling feels like sun burnish, but only on the bottom one. Does anyone have any advice for me??!
