UFO Report due out

Discussion in 'Life in General' started by Post-Life Crisis, June 17, 2021.

  1. "Something's going on we can't handle," a.ka the Pentagon's report gets more hype. Now UFOs are messing with nuclear facilities, a real step up from the cattle.

    I guess there must be a real uptick in Amazon sales for UFO books in the future, and the comics are going to go mad.

    Any guesses as to what's in it?

    I expect it to go something like this:

    Govt: "We can't identify the unidentified flying objects."
    Press: "So they are not aliens?"
    Govt: "We can't identify them. That means we don't know what they are."
    Press: "So you're not saying they're not aliens."
    Govt: "We're saying we don't know what they are."
    Press: "Yaaay, aliens!"

    I guess people just like to read something new by chance, and right now it's about UFO's. I think it's purely coincidental.

    @sliara, so you don't think booksales and author inspiration are affected by the headlines?

    If all the UFO books were to come out in 3 months time, I would have said it was an inspiration.

    If there are lots of UFO books coming out, it's probably a good day to bury some boring headlines.

    Well, it's been a while since aliens were the go to genre for a while. We've had zombies and vampires since then, so we're due for them to come back round.

    If aliens did exist, I'm not sure what I would make of it. I mean the universe is gigantic, so I doubt we are the only species around.Of course, we are a finite species in an infinite universe, so we are unlikely to be little more than a general hallucination (with thanks to Douglas Adams).
