Relatively Obscure: The 1947 UFO controversy of Roswell, N.M. is like a bad penny: It keeps turning up.... What?
SnakeLee: If we had an electronic pulse weapon that was advanced enough to crash a spacecraft from an advanced civilization, I hope that not only would our military be using it regularly, but we would in turn use that technology for all sorts of different applications. That would be as cool as aliens and a lot less likely than them being here, which almost certainly didn't happen. I mean, we could send fighter aircraft to a nuclear armed Iran and disable them before they could launch if it were that sophisticated, it would be a game changer.
basemetal: It was an electromagnetic pulse weapon developed from the stolen documents from Nikola Tesla's safe!/yeah, that's the ticket.......
Great Janitor: basemetal: It was an electromagnetic pulse weapon developed from the stolen documents from Nikola Tesla's safe!/yeah, that's the ticket.......But, was Tesla an alien, or was he given his knowledge from aliens. Did alien visitors give Tesla the knowledge of electricity???
Crewmannumber6: sentence fragment
eggrolls: If we had directable EMP weaponry in 1947, Korea and Vietnam would have turned out very differently.
jayhawk88: Tesla was human, but he was the first human to make contact with aliens, picking up their signal during one of his experiments. Edison was the alien, sent to Earth to damage Tesla's work and discredit him to the rest of humanity, to prevent humans learning of the aliens secret plans to mine Jupiter of it's helium.
gilatrout: What most of us in NM realize is that 1) there was no UFO at Roswell and 2) the government is lying.
Prank Call of Cthulhu: Wasn't the whole alien thing thoroughly debunked, uh, nearly TWO DECADES ago with the discussion of the Air Force's Project Mogul? And these deluded attention whores are still trying to make stuff up about it? Sigh.
Crewmannumber6: Subby's headline is a sentence fragmentRetired Air Force Colonel covering up two of the four UFO crashes at Roswell, NM....dies mysteriously.....has head lice......produces evidence.....cannot prove his wild claims.....has a lovely bunch of cocnuts.
gilatrout: Simplest explanation of that in the 60's lots of testing was taking place at WSMR, including aero shells to protect incoming warheads from atmospheric heat. These look very saucer like. The soldiers at Roswell would have no idea what one of these things were and jumped to conclusions. Later the people who knew what happened wanted to cover up very top secret research from the Soviets concocted the balloon story.
HandsUp: Crewmannumber6: Subby's headline is a sentence fragmentRetired Air Force Colonel covering up two of the four UFO crashes at Roswell, NM....dies mysteriously.....has head lice......produces evidence.....cannot prove his wild claims.....has a lovely bunch of cocnuts.What is a "cocnut"?
Sgygus: "When they hit it with that electromagnetic pulse -- bingo! -- there goes all their electronics and, consequently, the UFO was uncontrollable"1947. Electromagnetic pulse./Radar?
Tentacle: And that would be a bad thing?
protectyourlimbs: What ever happened to that story in 1967 where supposedly a UFO disabled a bunch of nuclear warheads, was that ever real?
imontheinternet: I know a guy, who knows a guy, who served in the military and overheard a guy say that he saw a UFO.Quick, Call the Sideboob Gazette!
