Can anyone tell me if this is lint or dandruff on my navy blue shirt?

Good for submarines.

Where's the nearest airforce base and was anyone training on a high altitude afterburn?

win.

Then again... we have UFOs too... cunningly disguised as Chinese Lanterns... clicky (new window)

If you look really really hard you can see the little green men peeking out of the windows of this giant fireball.
 
2008-09-03 10:53:20 AM  
why are space ships alway spotted by people with crap cameras.

Mind you, reminds me of those great fake shots of a monster ship passing over some palm trees - that's clever filming. Look pretty real too.

That was the gleam in Palin's Daughter's Boyfriend's eye.

She didn't see it either and ..............WHAM!

Gotta watch those little things.

Well, when you look at the unlikelihood of life ever developing on a planet, it's certainly not inconceivable that we are the only sentient race.
However, life and its evolution, once begun, is a powerful force. There likely is some form of intelligent life out there. I doubt they're able to travel light years though.

through photo enhancement we see that this is... a yellow blob.
could it -in fact- be Mr. Happy

a member of the sinister Mister Men society?
was not a similar yellow blob scene at the Kennedy assination in the grass knoll?

Wait, aren't we supposed to panic, or something? Granted, the headline didn't say to, but still...

It's a flaming ball of 20th century garbage. Can't you smell it?

I've actually have seen something like that, except it was much closer. It was like a orb of light that didn't move for an hour. It was over my local park, in Pa...my son and I both saw it and we actually reported it to a UFO site.
 
2008-09-03 11:02:32 AM  
Kinda looks like Luke screwed up the re-entry with the landspeeder.
Look, you can see R2D2's dome glowing right there over the back edge.

Hey, I believe in UFOs. But only in the stricted possible sense.

That is, I believe there are things that fly around that are not properly identified.

But they are not alien spaceships, no matter how much you want to believe.
