Aliens Do The Darndest Things

From the blog "Phantom Universe: Spooked by a Peeping Tom" (via Phantoms and Monsters) comes this delightful bit of pareidolia:


"SW" believes she caught an alien peeping through the window of her home in Stephens Co., Texas. Stephens Co sits adjacent to Erath Co - home to Stephenville, a UFO hotspot as of late.

What struck me, however, was how there was a far better "alien" inside the pattern on the curtain than ever may have stood outside her window like a small town pervert.

He kind of seems to be gesturing to himself, or perhaps showing off his "guns". I don't know which, but the one on the left (in the curtain) is a far better alien than that in the window.

Hi Cullen...may I suggest you gain permission from the original owner before posting the image.

Since it was used as for commentary/criticism/reporting, it falls within the rubric of Fair Use and therefore does not require that I gain permission.

I'm sure the "original owner" would have no problem (as would other ufo lovers) were you to oooh and aaah over her marvelous capture of creepy peeping aliens.

I strongly suspect the objection from Lon comes from your pointing out the picture if obvious wishful (or paranoiac) thinking.
