It's a space turd!

"Do you see this peanut here?"
2002-01-07 12:20:30 PM  
hahaha that guy is so.... je ne sais quois.
2002-01-07 12:20:48 PM  
I'd pay $1,000,000 for one night with the rock.

we should introduce this guy to "The Rich Dead Fat Guy".

I can get an anal probe at the local hospital for free if I dig in the dumpster. Not like I'm gonna pay some redneck $10,000 with that option.

$7.5 million dollar offer for a rock from a UFO... and he wants to use it to make airlines safer.

There's a joke in there somewhere.
2002-01-07 12:25:55 PM  
I wonder if for $10m you get fries with it...
2002-01-07 12:27:17 PM  
For $11m you get the space rock, fries, a 6 pack and a blowjob

"James Hughes recently took out an advertisement in The Florida Today newspaper for an object he said could hold the secret to antigravity."

So this thing's been levitating in his garage for 45 years? Maybe kind of a handyman thing, helping him get heavy stuff moved around?

This is BS, but I'd still like to see guys in black trenchcoats show up and take it from him.

Hey! I gots one o' dem, too. I'll let it go for 1/2 of what he is asking. Yeah, and Elvis dropped mine from the spaceship, that should be worth something.
2002-01-07 12:31:16 PM  
sir, it's an unidentified object that looks just like a giant...weener, any of you kids want another weener? Oh my god, that looks just like your...Wang, pay attention!

I know I messed this up, I would love the sound byte for you Nazi's out there who are about to correct me

2002-01-07 12:31:44 PM  
I'd just like to hear the details of that $11m blow job, would have to be something special.
2002-01-07 12:33:26 PM  
At first I thought the headline said he got $10 from a UFO (that happened to rob banks).
2002-01-07 12:46:50 PM  
It would be interesting to know which type of drive it came from.
2002-01-07 12:47:23 PM  
In other Earth news today, New Jersey fined space aliens for illegal dumping.

In other space news today, a space alien Queen was devasted when her ultra fantastic vibro-shock dildo went missing.
2002-01-07 12:48:42 PM  
Could it be...The last missing piece of sky lab?
2002-01-07 12:49:24 PM  
Even aliens have to dump their "space-shiatters" every so often...
2002-01-07 12:51:40 PM  
I'd pay $50 for a Starvin' Marvin.....
2002-01-07 12:55:18 PM  
Did he say it contained Pentium?
2002-01-07 12:56:47 PM  
The price might be worth it if he could also produce the UFO it came from.
2002-01-07 02:10:29 PM  
Reminds me of a Billy Connely sketch about a Joobie Wheaker................
2002-01-07 02:15:45 PM  
Will somebody please tell me how that rich idiot came up with the fairly precise figure of $7.5 million? Would he not take $7?

Can't these things be gotten wholesale?
2002-01-07 02:18:33 PM  
OK, I checked. It's a flux capacitor, and it's solid corbomite.

Would I lie about a thing like that?
2002-01-07 02:32:32 PM  
Holy flying space turd Batman...............
2002-01-07 02:55:34 PM  
Reminds me of the morning after the New Years party...a bit more solid though.
2002-01-07 03:26:25 PM  
Did anyone else the corn in that thing?

2002-01-07 03:41:59 PM  
i wonder...

if i take a a few shiats and force them into one giant glob, and call it an alien larvae .. u think i could get 10 million too?
2002-01-07 04:16:54 PM  
I can't get to the video I think its part of a massive goverment cover-up to keep the truth from us.
2002-01-07 05:00:34 PM  
Well, at least the UFO was nice enough to drop it in a garbage dump. Most of them just leave their crap lying around anywhere they please.
2002-01-07 05:12:24 PM  
its obvious now, New Jersey's number one import? Trash from Canada, New Jersey'd second import? Trash from alien space craft.

Here we have a global problem with our landfills filling all up, and we have an advanced race from another planet not helping very much. What space pricks. Besides they should know to recycle.

"If Hughes sells the object, he plans to use the money to help airport security, according to the report."

WTF? Why? Why would somebody think of all the things to buy after selling space trash, why pay for airport security.
Ooohhh riiiight, He is farking nuts.
2002-01-07 06:30:23 PM  
...Did anyone else notice the high ammount of '...' in this story ...?
2002-01-07 06:47:43 PM  
"...may hold the secret to anti-gravity."

wow good one mr. physicist did you also hear that from some aliens when they abducted you?

also using the money for airport security!?@ wtf. im not even going to comment on that. this guy is a nutcase but the person who buys this "rock" will be even stupider.
2002-01-07 07:09:29 PM  
Blah ... no way is he an idiot ... anyone who can get 7.5 million from a lump of rock is a a farking genius ... pet rocks ... bleh
2002-01-07 07:49:12 PM  

you have a point. anyone who can get an offer like that for a simple piece of rock has some smarts... i just think his claims are crazy but then again for 7.5 million hmm... ;]
2002-01-07 08:29:51 PM  
The thing "may" hold the secret to anti-gravity.

Gotta love that word.

It "may" be stronger than diamond too. It "may" also be capable of time travel. It "may" contain enough nutrients to feed everybody in Africa for a hundred years.

Wow. Now that I think about it, this thing "may" be worth ten BILLION dollars.
2002-01-07 08:54:24 PM  
Mr. Wacko, meet eBay. eBay, meet Mr. Wacko.

I wonder what his seller rating would be?

If this really was significant the guy in question would be killed in a (cia coordinated) car crash and the item in question would disapear!


If there's anything else i can help you with I'll be at the Fark for a day thread, and no I will not link you there, ya lazy fat dead guy!


Unfortunately only the elite will get that joke!
2002-01-07 10:16:11 PM  
Das' a big ol' rock! How he gon' smoke dat all by hisself?
2002-01-07 10:18:19 PM  
before they showed that rock, i expected the 'secret alien object' to be something stupid like a fork

that would have been pretty tough

that was pretty nuts action on the camera mans' part
nobody else seemed to have noticed that so far
made him seem a little more 'bizare'
or maybe that's what THEY want you to think!
*shift eyes*
