Hello, 4-ch.So, long story short. There's an UFO appearing in my neighbourhood almost every night.
Here's my twitter, you can read all the rest there. I will add more posts to twitter as soon as something interesting happens.
Also, I'm from southern Europe.

The standard response to UFO stories.

When I was in Boy Scouts, I saw a UFO once. Right after dinner I got violently ill and threw up. I remember shivering and watching a particularly bright star in the sky dancing around. Turns out someone put magic mushrooms in our food. I didn’t see a UFO at all, but I was convinced at the time (of that and a lot of other things too). Chances are you (or in fact anyone) have never seen a UFO and never will.

UFOs are a case of human arrogance. We want to think something out there gives a crap about us, but that’s not very likely. If you want to get straight the point, then UFOs are generally aircraft, stars, planets, or atmospheric phenomenon. That’s all they are. You perceive something as UFOs as a result of seeing the briefly unknown through a filter of popular culture. Nutjobs before you saw “air ships” in the skies. Before that it was gods and angels.

The UFO story itself worked wonders for covering up American intelligence operations in the 1940s and 50s. What fell to the earth in Roswell was a balloon used in a monitoring system that detected nuclear tests in the Soviet Union. The UFO story was born from the cover up and it certainly did distract from any real search for the truth for a very long time. All genuine government concern regarding UFOs was a hunt for foreign spy planes, not aliens. Thinking otherwise is absurd for many reasons.

Let’s say there is in fact a space faring culture in the universe. It would be my own arrogance to assume what they would do should they find earth in all its glory: a ball of worthless rock covered in salt water, coated nice biological scum all over, and dominated by a bunch of constantly bickering apes… but I will try. They could simply move on and ignore us. Perhaps we are not the least bit special. Oh no, not another ape planet! These always end with nuclear annihilation… so boring!

Perhaps they’d choose to observe us (we being particularly belligerent apes). If they have advanced technology, how can we see them? Would they not be adept at hiding themselves? We’re pretty good at this skill already. Perhaps they don’t care about their impact on us apes (knowing we always blow ourselves up in the end and never infest a planet long) and would choose to observe right out in the open. If so, why even bother flying so high? Why do they only observe rural villages? Why hassle rednecks? There are more interesting things to see and surely people in urban areas would see them with the same (or greater) frequency (they don’t!). Would they choose to invade us? Why? Does the intergalactic economy run on salt water and granite? That’s mostly what we’ve got. Also there are plenty of ape-free planets full of both things right here in our solar system with absolutely no defenses whatsoever! The point is that we’re not important enough to waste these beings’ time.

None of this particularly matters anyway. Chances are intelligence is exceedingly rare even in the scope of a vast universe. It is only through a long series of unique coincidences that we apes ever saw it necessary to come down from trees, bang rocks together, and start fires (our technology summed up, really). Given the size of the universe though, there’s likely more intelligence out there and perhaps they are party to great technology but they’re likely so far away that we’ll never bump in to one another. Think of it this way: If you had the ability to choose two stars in the universe at random, what are the chances they’d be half a universe away from one another? Even then, what if they were only a tenth of a universe away from one another? They’re still extremely far apart. Chances are we’re going to be alone for the duration of our species’ existence even if we find ourselves capable of intergalactic travel in the future. The same holds true for them.

You are a fucking idiot.

The UFO scam summed up: see lights in the sky, discount all common sense, film it poorly, and profit! When you're in a world already oversaturated with self-published books and DVDs, the only profit left for the bottom feeders is attention and fame among the sad circle of losers who actually believe the lie.

>Similar footage appeared last month (on Youtube), filmed by another California UFO buff named Ed Grimsley. Like KevinMC360 (subject of the linked article), Grimsley randomly videotapes the night skies over California, looking for any lights he can't identify; also, like Grimsley, KevinMC360 is a "repeater," and regularly reports seeing spaceships flying above. And both men commit the classic paranormal fallacy of arguing from ignorance (also known as the argument from personal incredulity): "I don't understand X, therefore it's an anomaly."

The experts agree: they're videotaping distant airliners and calling them UFOs. Sound familiar OP?

The UFOlogy recipe: Combine equal parts self-fulfilling prophesy, sensationalism, and then sift out all the science!

>A self-described "armchair astronaut" ... David Martines noticed a mysterious rectangular structure that appears to be on the Red Planet's surface while trolling the planetary surface using Google Mars...
>"[It's] a long, pixelated, white object ... It's over 700 feet long and 150 feet wide. It looks like it's a cylinder..."

Weird, definitely. I'm sure we won't jump to conclusions, though...

>"I call it Bio Station Alpha, because I'm just assuming that something lives in it or has lived in it."

Right. And what do the experts say?

>"It looks like a linear streak artifact produced by a cosmic ray," said Alfred McEwen, a planetary geologist at the Lunar and Planetary Lab at the University of Arizona and the director of the Planetary Imaging Research Laboratory.

Remember, this image was taken by an orbiter subject to all kinds of cosmic radiation. Yet again, a reasonable explanation that will no-doubt be entirely ignored by the UFO nuts.

UFO is an abbreviation for an Unidentified Flying Object. So if you see something in the air and you have no clue what it is, you have full rights to call it UFO. You don't, however, have rights to reject any reasonable explanation and insist it's an alien spaceship. Even if it was one, it wouldn't qualify as UFO anyway.

While it is true that most UFO sightings are probably bullshit, it is premature to scoff and say IT NEVER HAPPENED. The universe is a massive place, discounting things like this just because of all the crap that surrounds it is really not doing the whole thing justice

17 Name: Anonymous Scientist : 2011-06-13 11:05 ID:n36AtPK5

Just because something can’t be proven doesn’t mean it’s true. Follow the evidence and you’ll find that everything related to UFOs is a misidentification, a hoax, or a fantasy. This has been the case in every instance. Why should we bother continuing to study something that clearly isn’t there?

For example: I posit that “in a few rare instances”, children with birth defects are in fact changelings. Genetic tests of these children will reveal that they’re not the spawn of trolls, but of human parents every time. We could either discount the changeling hypothesis after testing a reasonable sample or we could take the UFO nut route of logic: today’s trolls you see are party to advanced genetic manipulation technology and can replace children in utero! We’ll never know with 100% certainty unless we tested every afflicted child but that doesn’t mean that “in a few rare instances” deformed children are the work of trolls...

You fail to see that I agree with the idea of following evidence completely-

But what is important is that this isn't a situation where you can ever disprove the possibility of contact, and to suddenly discontinue the future of study based on poor past results is an over-reaction based on the biased assumption that we can ever possess enough data to definitively answer the question. As a species, we are not in the absolute intellectual position of knowing everything that ever was and ever will be, in fact I would personally go so far as to say that such a situation is impossible due to the inability to definitively establish anything. Reactionary posturing like what you are suggesting is nothing more than short-sighted overconfidence fostered through the ethnocentric tendencies of some scientists to believe that their observations are absolute.

Is there a possibility of intelligent life elsewhere? Yes. In fact given the size of the universe, it's likely. What are the odds they're nearby, though? I'd say slim seeing as how we've heard no sign of them so far. Given the wildest telescope/whatever of our imagining, how far away could they be and detect us and when? The odds are heavily stacked against ET ever finding us or us finding them.

Given that, I'm going to say that listening to the heavens for their signal is a waste of time. It's still better time spent than fools putting their camcorders to the sky to produce grainy youtube videos of identified flying objects and then claiming these are proof that the Queen of England is a lizard or whatever...

Any race with the technology to travel the vast distances between stars would also most likely have some means of faster than light communication that we would be too primitive to pick up.
