Well, somebody had to ask it sooner or later. With all the questions about how many LJs do this or that, how many of us have seen UFOs? I haven't actually seen one, but didn't they bring the tools to build the pryamids? What about the rock patterns in So America that can only be seen from the air? Or, space?

Actually truth be told I was abducted by an alien race of Amazon Women when I lived in San Francisco in the 70's. The took me to a strange place where they burned strange smelling herbs, had wierd flashy lights and strange sounds then threw me naked in a pile with other naked aliens where I was pro… Oh wait a minute? Ah. never mind that was something else.

My Lil' Bro has one of those AFDBs but I think he uses to disable the transponder in his semi when they think they are going to leave him sitting somewhere over a long weekend without a load. Never hurts them if they don't know he took the truck home over the weekend ;-)) He says running it home empty doesn't burn anymore diesel than letting it idle all weekend to keep the power on!

On second thought, maybe I have seen a UFO? It was LB headed home ;-)) No, that would be a LFO! Low Flying Object…....

Jaqwah, UFO's, not Altered States!

jeez, "I lived in San Francisco in the 70's…. burned strange smelling herbs, ... weird flashy lights and strange sounds…"

ok, ok, it's now fifteen minutes later and I am just now pickling myself up off the floor…

I'm thirsty, where'd I put that apple pie….. Maybe I'll see weird flashy lights and strange sounds…

Hummm??, Aliens must not be interested in wood or woodworkers. Therefore, it must be assumed there are no forests on the other planets in the far, far galaxies. :-(( I was thinking of going to the space station, then hitch hiking around looking for alien extra-exotics. Guess maybe something a little more down to earth will be in my future. (all puns definitely intended)

This is a real disappointment. I had hoped to be traveling at many times the speed of light. Snatching the Hubbell telescope on the way by, I would have the ability to look back and see what happened to Amelia Airheart. Another thing I'd hoped to do is watch the Lost Dutchman going to the mine.

Without the profits from the Alien Exotics and the gold from the mine, I'll never be able to afford the trip. This will be a great loss for the wood working community, not being able to use interterrestrial exotics for pens and cutting boards.

A friend of mine that grew up in Spokane Wa has told me about many times he & his family have seen them. He grew up with small airplanes in the family. His Dad was a pilot as well as he & many in the small community. We may agree that if you are gazing at the sky more than others your chances are greater than others to see one. On the other hand being familiar with common aircraft gives you knowledge of what may be something out of the ordinary. He has many great tales of UFOs. But then he is also a tile man & a great Musician. I have never seen one but I think I would like to. Just like a ghost, the thought of seeing or encountering one seems cool until you do and are completely freaked out when you do. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well about a year ago my sister who is an EMT called to tell me there had been a plane crash in Tipton, Indiana which is about 20 miles from where I lived at the time. Then everyone I knew started saying something similar. Friends of mine that lived closer said they even FELT it hit. Then the news crews got launched to the scene. What did they find? Nothing. Rumors started spreading that strange lights were seen in a line pattern in the sky staying still, then abruptly taking off after a couple minutes. We have a refueling Air Force base close to where I live, they said they didn't have anything in the air, so that was out of the picture. The next morning, Fort Wayne (about 3 hrs away from Tipton) finally comes out and says "We were flying F-16's last night as a training skirmish, and dropping flares"...
Yet the lights that were seen went up and away, not down and floating as flares typically do. Nobody ever figured out what happened for certain, a lot of speculation flew around, and we even ended up on TV with UFO Hunters. Who knows what it really was.

Jim, I may have seen that on UFO Hunters.

The only one close to here made my dog yelp when she was barking at it, so I didn't look. Always wished I had. A friend in Mexico City has seen the ones that were in the news down there for several years.
