Inside Top Secret: Revealing The Truth Of Area 51

As the veil of secrecy and silence slips from around those who once worked for the government's ultra top-secret "Area 51" test site in the remote stretches of the Nevada desert, more and more individuals are coming forward to tell us what REALLY went on there. Here's a spoiler: it wasn't UFO's. READ MORE HERE

It seems, according to those who were there, to have been what we all knew it to be: a place where top-secret experimental aircraft were designed and built. With the revelation that such craft as the SR-71 Blackbird and its antecedent, the A-12 and other oddly shaped craft later were all tested there, it should come as no surprise then in retrospect that UFO's took on decidedly non-saucer shapes in the last three decades of the 20th Century. It would seem logical to assume that the emergence of triangle shaped craft arose in the wake of real reports based upon very real sightings - of terrestrial craft.

In fact, many think the same may be occurring now with sightings such as the Phoenix Lights and the mysterious phenomenon in Stephensville, TX. Long the rumor has been that the government has been at work on floating platforms or stealth blimps, silent but fast craft for reconnaissance, refueling, or defense. And it makes sense. What better way to test the efficacy of your stealth craft than to hover it over your very own cities? It's not like one would want to risk experimental technology over an uncontrollable population in a foreign (and potentially hostile) land. If it fell into their hands, your research and secrecy would be for nought.
Or, as still others believe, this announcements and revelations are simply another layer atop a complex structure of lies and misdirection.

Probing Deeper Into The Contactee Movement

An interesting review of Nick Redfern's Contactee book can be found here. Contactee stories, like alien abduction tales, center around close encounters, but differ greatly in tone. Contactees invariably meet beautiful, flaxen-haired beauties who radiate peace and love like Scandinavian club kids tripping on Ecstasy. Whereas the poor sufferers known as Abductees are treated to a dehumanizing experience of anal probes and psychological terror at the hands of a short, ashen skinned monster with no emotions. It's like being at the sexual mercy of Andy Dick.
The whole movement is truly a fascinating examination of a mid-20th Century cultural zeitgeist. However, probing deeper (if you'll pardon the pun), Regan Lee asks why the patently absurd stories of the Contactees are ridiculed while the equally outlandish (albeit darker) tales of the Abductees are given serious consideration.

New Hominid Discovered! Well... part of her anyway.

Recent work in Siberia caves unearthed more than the expected bones of Neanderthal or early man. According to recently-finished DNA work, the pinky bone of a third, heretounknown hominid was discovered there as well. You can read more about this startling find, which joins other recent discoveries such as the recent discovery of prehistoric "little people" in Indonesia. Another good article can be found here.

America's Wolfman

Monster Quest's finale tomorrow night will center around the analysis of 2007's "Gable Film" in which it is purported one can witness fleeting glimpses of a wolf-like creature, perhaps (as some think) a werewolf. Such wolfmen have been witnessed from time to time stretching back as far as history itself. In fact, in the 1960's a wolfman was reported by many witnesses to have been running loose and terrorizing the denizens of Lawton, OK. One doesn't have to look hard to find other examples from most every state in the union. The Beast of Bray Road is another popular example that has been examined by Monster Quest in previous episodes. To find out more, check out Cryptomundo.

As a side note, the banner image is inspired by those very events in Lawton and hints at the creature so vaguely described in "The Iron Door".

Look out! It's a night of Weeruns!

Both Destination Truth and Monster Quest will be dusting off reruns centered on the investigation of Leprechauns for St. Patrick's Day - complete with green beer, I bet. Loren Coleman has the low down over at Cryptomundo.

Caught a brief snippet of a Monster Quest rerun yesterday as I flipped through the channels: something about piranha in North American lakes. Yes, the eyes rolled. While I don't doubt that, given the proper circumstances, it could happen, I'm skeptical. I'm not just going to take the word of some fisherman who says he pulled one out - even if he produces a picture. I mean, if you put your mind to it, how hard would it be, really, to acquire a specimen, dangle it from a line, and say "I caught a piranha!"? Not very. I didn't finish the episode, but I can only speculate that it achieved the same nebulous non-conclusion as all the others do and left us baited by some open-ended and ultimately vapid it-could-still-be-out-there-lurking statement.

The Sky Is Falling!

Ugh! More chemtrail gargbage: here. In truth, what we are looking at in this picture is known as a nacreous cloud, likely formed by some orographic effect in some wintery northern clime.
