How’s about them UFO’s?
I had UFO’s…AND shut down an airport (not to be named) all on the same night.
So…I am a young entrepreneurial mid 20’s fool with more money than brains. Myself and some friends are in a WalMart at about 11pm and I have one of them large “punchy balloons” - you know the ones that you have the rubber band on your hand and punch it away like a speed bag. Well, WalMart has emergency road flares on sale…and I got an idea. I got a package of road flares, got some helium (it is in shaving cream like cans at WalMart) and more punchy balloons.
Off we go. We are in a parking lot where I fill a punchy balloon with helium and tie the rubber band to a road flare…and eleven more times. Light the flares and off they go.
No more than five minutes later cops were all over. Traffic was at a dead halt on major roads and everyone was looking at the UFO’s!!! We did the “oh crap” and got out of the area.
The next day I read in the paper that there was nothing on radar but they did divert flights. Cops swore that they saw the lights moving in unison and on and on…I can google it to this day…
That. Is. Awesome!
Oh - one of the internet UFO sites claims that F16’s were scrambled to the area - I can not confirm that but there is a few F16’s just north of me that are part of a National Guard deal. I sure didnt see any F16’s.
What is odd - they did all move together is if they were connected. Some of the public comments were “they were flashing codes like on Close Encounters”…while I am certain the statute of limitations is past…this was post 9/11 so you never know. Watching a cop get interviewed on the news the next night was classic.
Then - to make it even better…my boss (at the time) was at work the next Monday asking everyone if we saw the UFO’s…he was simply convinced that he saw something otherworldly.
So, where is my million dollar reward if I “solve” the chemtrail hoax?

Find Bigfoot, win $1 million
Here’s your chance, Bigfoot nerds … um, scientists. Time to get rich and prove your skeptics wrong.
The maker of former local brew Olympia Beer is offering $1 million to anyone who can “ensure the safe capture” or provide “irrefutable evidence” of the region’s hairiest elusive creature. That would be Bigfoot.
The evidence must prove the existence of a “previously undiscovered species of upright, bipedal hominid native to North America” in the previous 25 years. Evidence can include DNA samples or a live, unharmed Bigfoot.
“That’s right, you can’t use any act of violence, no guns/knives/boxing gloves/nets/etc., only sugar or sweets to lure him in,” the company says.
So no footprints, bone fragments or blurry photos. Hmmm, sounds tough. Better scroll through these photos for clues and more contest rules.
Sugar only? Crap! And to think I spent all that money on pounds and pounds of beef jerky that just keeps disappearing .
May I also add, “devoteddad” here joined dear FA on Mon, April 8th at 8:20pm. This post was made at 8:26. It doesn’t mean anything, really. I feel our “friend” devoteddad made this account just to stir up a storm.
Well duh…that was obvious…but cant we play?
It has been quite fun!
Maybe he’s actually one of the aliens, sent to probe our brains in advance of the colonization.
Or Bigfoot’s brother…
Weel typically you don’t want to feed the trolls. Luckily Devoteddad isn’t a very good one.
Why don’t I ever get to fly a chemtrail mission?
Typically, no. But this one just deserved a cookie or two.
How do you know that you haven’t, eh??? Lolololol
lol, well I have never seen a bunch of hoses and tanks that didn’t belong. Besides somebody has to turn it on and off.
That’s because he’s not a troll; he’s a believer.
Which is sad, really.
No don’t tell me this! I want to believe that he’s just a troll, I don’t want to believe someone can believe something so blantantly false.
This story is about six months old, and the incident described is a bit older. Worth reading for the great pilot quote “some of these guys have room temperature IQ’s”.
Its all fun and games until someone gets hurt.
Jet pilots fear ‘chemtrail’ attacks
AIRLINE pilots fear their jumbos could be shot down by conspiracy theorists who believe they are being poisoned by commercial aircraft.
The conspiracy theorists are part of a global “chemtrail” movement that claims jets are spraying toxic chemicals over heavily-populated towns and cities around the world.
“Threats to shoot down aircraft or harming pilots are becoming more prevalent, overt and alarming,” says Mike Glynn, a current airline captain and former vice-president of the Australian and International Pilots Association.
"While most can be discounted as empty threats, there remains the possibility that some unhinged individual or group may act. It is beginning to cause consternation in pilot ranks.’’
Sydneysider Robert Hoogenboom and Melbourne actor Peter Kusznir are part of the movement, although both say they advocate peaceful protestand there is no suggestion that they have made any threats or engaged in any violent conduct.
News Ltd can reveal that Mr Hoogenboom was one of a small group of activists being observed by Australian Federal Police at Sydney Airport last December as they were waiting to question pilots they believed were flying aircraft spraying toxins.
The activists say contrails (the white vapour clouds that trail from aircraft exhausts) are actually “chemtrails”, and some believe that governments and airlines are involved in conspiracies to reduce population numbers.
Hoogenboom admitted he and two others went to Sydney Airport to talk to the pilots.
“It was simply to find out if they knew the planes they were flying were spraying chemicals,” he said.
"The evidence that commercial airlines are spraying is overwhelming, you can see it on (Youtube) clip after clip. We just decided to talk to an airline pilot.
"We got to the passenger exit and knew which gate they were coming out of, so we waited. We saw the cops and I kept on saying, `We’ve got to get out of here … because they’re waiting for us’. It turned out they were waiting for us. It was a bit of a fizzer. There were about 10 cops and then a couple of them went into the exit where passengers come out, and then 15 minutes later they turned up at another entrance, so they’ve lead the crew out somewhere else. The only thing we wanted to ask was if they knew their plane was spraying.
The Australian Federal Police confirmed the protesters were being monitored at the airport. “The AFP was aware of possible protest activity at Sydney Airport involving the group Chemtrail. As a matter of caution the AFP escorted a number of airline employees through an alternate exit,” a spokesperson said. The AFP would not comment on whether it was monitoring the activists.
Captain Mike Glynn, who describes some of the conspiracy theorists as having “room temperature IQs”, has attempted without success to reason with Kusznir and many others via willing online chat discussions, by providing scientific explanations for the contrails.
“The upper atmosphere is generally very dry but when conditions permit, such as before an approaching cold front which forces moisture high into the atmosphere, the relative humidity becomes so high that the water vapour in the jet exhaust condenses into ice crystals and a con(densation)-trail is formed,” he said.
Neighbours and Underbelly bit-part actor Kusznir, writing under the alias peekay22, has posted several videos on Youtube allegedly showing chemtrails in the air above Melbourne.
Asked if he had any scientific training that might allow him to comment with authority, Kusznir said: “Mate, I opened my eyes and I can see it in the sky. My eyes don’t lie.”
Kusznir believes thousands of government and airline employees worldwide are in on the conspiracy, and has an explanation for why not one person has broken ranks: “People are too scared that if they speak up they’ll get knocked off.”
Civil Aviation Safety Authority spokesman Peter Gibson said: “The trail that you see from the ground is water vapor. It’s like on a frosty winter’s morning when you go outside and breathe. What comes out is your hot, warm, moist breath and when it hits cold, dry air you get condensation. It’s exactly the same with aircraft warm air comes out of the engine and hits the cold dry atmosphere.”
After two interviews in which he promoted the chemtrail cause, Hoogenboom later withdrew all his claims. “I have no other evidence,” he said.
