Good times… And the Windows paper clip sounds exactly like I always imagined: incredibly annoying!
The Asgard from Stargate SG-1 may be real after all.
Dr. Edgar Mitchell, a former NASA astronaut, has just announced that governments have been repeatedly covering up alien visits for the last 6 decades. And he’s finally ready to talk.
Mitchell brings some credibility to his statements: first off, he’s a moon-walker. If you’re like me, when I first read the headline, I thought the article was about a former 80s dancer who used those cheap Michael Jackson dance moves. And I thought, “Well, yea, he *would* be crazy.” But Edgar Mitchell actually *walked* on the moon.
Edgar claims these real-life aliens look like the typical description: small frames, large eyes and head. In other words, our “grey” friends from Stargate might just be real. What’s next? Stargate is real? Daniel Jackson exists?
(I wish… And yes, I’m wishing more for Daniel Jackson than for a Stargate. And no, the actor doesn’t count. I want a *real* Daniel Jackson – cute, single, smart, and involved with a top-secret government scifi project. *swoon*)
But back to the story at hand… Mitchell claims our technology is nothing compared to what the aliens have. How does he know? He claims that being a former astronaut and all, he is privy to intelligence information.
Do we believe him? And if it’s true, why is he sharing this NOW? According to Mitchell, the cover-up started right after World War II. Now, he says, countries across the world (Mexico, Brazil, etc.) are starting to open their files, thus precipitating his announcement.
Could the United States successfully cover something like this? Sure it could. But just because the U.S. can, doesn’t mean it *is.*Or is it? (Insert spooky sci-fi music here.)
Already, people are discounting Mitchell’s tale. NASA has denied his statements. Others are pointing to his history as a man always interested in consciousness and paranormal phenomenon. He’s too “fringe.”
Interestingly, he’s not the first person to make this announcement. He’s not even the first astronaut to claim this.
Gordon Cooper, also one of America’s first astronauts, has been saying for years that aliens are real and the government is covering it all up.
And in 2005, Paul Hellyer, Canada’s Defence Minister from 1963-1967, stated that UFOs are real and are being covered up. And don’t forget that the Vatican just recently announced that the existence of aliens would not hinder the faith at all. Coincidence?
Probably. But isn’t it more fun to imagine otherwise?
So, what do you think? Is it true? If it is, I hope the government releases the information in our lifetime. I’d really like to travel through a Stargate someday.
What an amazing two hours for the Lost finale! I’m just going to share a few quick thoughts here and I’ll write something more in-depth later (so stay tuned!) As usual, if you haven’t watched it yet, don’t read anymore.
Now we know why only the Oceanic Six were saved. Did anyone else want to cry when the freighter exploded and Sun was crying? The acting was amazing in that scene. I could just feel how painful that would be. I can’t imagine that happening to me!
It was interesting to see Sun’s situation contrasted with Desmond’s. Sun is separated from her true love and Desmond is reunited. It’s very illustrative of life itself. We all have different paths to follow, different times of joy and sorrow. Sometimes our paths converge and we struggle with the same things, and sometimes our paths are mirror opposites. It’s why you should never be jealous of someone else. There is no telling when life could change and you will be the “blessed” one while the other person will have the struggles.
Back to Lost… Sawyer has totally trumped Jack in the coolness department. Whining baby Jack was so insistent on NOT going back to the Island that Sawyer had to sacrifice himself. Nice Jack, real nice. And years later Jack abandons Aaron? Why?! I don’t care what was going on, there is no excuse to abandon a little kid. This proves the old adage: Never get involved with a doctor. They’ll only become really self-obsessed and crazy in the end! (Or maybe I just like blondes.)
And what did you think of Ben moving that “wheel” to move the Island? Did anyone else catch that he was moving the Island *forward* in time by 3 years? Immediately after that scene, Ben showed up in the desert three years in the future. So we know that moving the Island isn’t by location but by time.
And Locke is Jeremy Benthame? He probably changed his name to signify his new role and new life as leader of the Island. Who killed him and why? And why did Locke think it was so important for all six to come back that he visited them each individually?
In the last scene, Ben actually looked really cool. It is the only time in the history of Lost that Ben was better looking than scruffy Jack. Could never happen with Sawyer though.
OK, now here is my big question for my readers. It’s really important, so read closely…
Who is the “cooler” character? Jack, Sawyer, or Ben? Hmm…
Lost is an awesome show. But every now & then I wonder just what the writers were thinking…
10. Nikki & Paulo
Yes, they were by far the two most annoying characters in television history. I’m glad to see them gone. But, with Patchy resurrecting all the time, Locke cured of paralysis, Rose cured of cancer, and Christian Shepherd sitting around in Jacob’s cabin… Might we see Nikki and Paulo again too? Say it isn’t so! I for one am hoping the immortality theory is not true.
9. Libby’s Death
Guess I’ll never know why she was stalking Hurley at the mental institution. Great way too create a really compelling mystery and then destroy it.
8. Eko’s “Smoky” Encounter
This left something to be desired. Sure, the morphing of Eko’s brother into Smoky was really cool and helped us realize many of the Losties’ hallucinations were actually Smoky appearances. But the next scenes where Smoky was tossing Eko around like a ragdoll were unfulfilling, to say the least. Sometimes Smoky looks and acts way too much like the water creature on “The Abyss” to be taken seriously.
7. Hurley’s Diet
Hurley wouldn’t be the same – or as much fun – if he were skinny. But Hurley really should be losing some weight on the island. He was sneaking Dharma food for awhile, but isn’t that long over?
6. Fake Smoky Appearance
Big goof. Lost viewers everywhere discovered that in the pilot episode, a “smoke monster” was seen hitting the airplane turbine shortly before it exploded. Much speculation ensued about this find. Sadly, the producers later confirmed it was a CGI effect left in the show in error. You can see it here:
5. Charlie: Death by Stupid
Charlie’s death was sad. But the saddest part was that it didn’t have to happen. He could have run to the other side of the door and shut it. There was plenty of time.
4. The Lost Experience
OK, a lot of people will disagree with me on this. Sure, The Lost Experience kept us entertained one summer. But the revelations ended up being very out of place. The solution it offered to Hurley’s numbers was unsatisfying and has never been mentioned on the actual show. Does anyone still believe that was really the answer?
3. Locke’s Bizarre Trust of Ben
Seriously Locke, grow a brain!
Ben shot him and left him for dead in a mass grave. Ben admitted to gassing all those Dharma people and thus committing mass murder. He’s insane. Yet Locke continues to release him and actually believe him. Utter stupidity. Why does Locke insist on trusting liars?
2. Lack of Curiosity Killed the Cat
How many times have we yelled at our TV screens because Locke didn’t follow up on a mystery when he was with an “other” or Jack seemed to care more about Kate and Sawyer than the smoke monster that was killing people? There were plenty of times the Losties didn’t share vital information with one another or “forgot” to ask Danielle or an Other about a question that was bugging all of us.
Sure, Locke finally asked Ben what the smoke monster was. And Ben said he had no idea. But really Locke, of all the people you could ask, you choose Ben?
Ah yes, it was the fodder of forum humor everywhere: Michael and his ever-present Waaaaallllltttt scream.
Waaaaaalllllltttttt! haunted us in our dreams. Sadly, we saw it again before “Meet Kevin Johnson.” Think the love of Waaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllttttttttt is over? Just run a Google search on Waaaaaaaaaaaaaalt!! and you’ll see we’re all still talking about it:
Notice the third entry in the picture above. Apparently Waaaaaaaaaalt!!!! translates into any language. No wonder Walt doesn’t want to see Michael anymore.
