project blue book — the porkies are out there...

aliens

Project Blue Book was one of a series of systematic studies of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) conducted by the United States Air Force. It started in 1952, the third study of its kind (the first two were projects Sign (1948) and Grudge (1949). A termination order was given for the study in December 1969, and all activity under its auspices officially ceased in January 1970. Project Blue Book had two goals:

  1. To determine if UFOs were a threat to national security, and
  2. To scientifically analyze UFO-related data.

Thousands of UFO reports were collected, analyzed, and filed. As a result of the Condon Report (1968), which concluded there was nothing anomalous about UFOs, and a review of the report by the National Academy of Sciences, Project Blue Book was terminated in December 1969. The Air Force supplies the following summary of its investigations:

  1. No UFO reported, investigated, and evaluated by the Air Force was ever an indication of threat to our national security;
  2. There was no evidence submitted to or discovered by the Air Force that sightings categorized as "unidentified" represented technological developments or principles beyond the range of modern scientific knowledge; and
  3. There was no evidence indicating that sightings categorized as "unidentified" were extraterrestrial vehicles.[1]

By the time Project Blue Book ended, it had collected 12,618 UFO reports, and concluded that most of them were misidentifications of natural phenomena (cloudsstars, etc.) or conventional aircraft. According to the National Reconnaissance Office a number of the reports could be explained by flights of the formerly secret reconnaissance planes U-2 and A-12.[2] A small percentage of UFO reports were classified as unexplained, even after stringent analysis. The UFO reports were archived and are available under the Freedom of Information Act, but names and other personal information of all witnesses have been redacted.

This is how you manipulate the minds of us — idiots, who have lost our sense of smelling bullshit. Brilliant... The General Public with decoration and medals for wars we don't understand is once again treated for the fools that we are.

the twilight zone's april first...

As we approach the April 1 premiere of Jordan Peele’s “Twilight Zone” series on CBS All Access, it’s worth remembering that some of the most memorable episodes from the original 1959 run ended up being a little too prophetic. And even if we haven’t yet had an alien invasion like in the famed 1962 episode “To Serve Man” (“It’s a cookbook!!”), here are eight times Rod Serling’s masterpiece of a show proved unnervingly adept at predicting modern developments.

If you’re creeped out by news stories about Alexa and other smart appliances getting invasive, watch “A Thing About Machines,” in which a crochety magazine critic, Bartlett Finchley, is convinced that the gadgets in his home are conspiring against him — his TV, his clock, his razor, and even his typewriter, which writes “Get out of here Finchley.” He’s found mysteriously dead on the bottom of his swimming pool.

Find the popularity of plastic surgery creepy? “Number 12 Looks Just Like You” is set in a future in which all young adults go through a process called The Transformation, in which they are surgically altered to look like one of a limited set of attractive humans. When a woman rebels, she’s held against her will and hypnotized into accepting the surgery.

If my memory is correct, Mad Magazine had an "article" (a spoof on Toy Story) on appliances doing mischief when no one is looking... We all know the TV zapper is hiding somewhere. See also: http://yourdemocracy.net.au/drupal/node/34289
