By that logic movies should be better than their books due to being based on the "best parts".

That's a blog, which is not legitimate and highly suspect.

That's not how it works.

Your government type-classifies them based on shape, and there are four such groupings. While I don't know for certain, I have reason to believe they are sub-classified based on proposed propulsion system (meaning a best-guess as to what the propulsion system might actually be).

The implication of four different types suggests four different civilizations.

The differences within each type suggests additional civilizations, or modifications of an existing design. But, given an 80-year history of photographic evidence, how many modifications would you expect?

They all exhibit different characteristics in mobility, but one characteristic they all appear to have in common is extraordinary speed.

The one cruising back and forth between France and Germany along the southern border of Luxembourg last seen in the vicinity of Trier (Germany), being chased by US F-4s and F-15s, German F-4s, French aircraft (I never knew which ones) and Canadian F-18s apparently disappeared, then reappeared west of Soesterberg Air Base in the Netherlands in visual range of US F-4s heading toward the North Sea about 6 seconds later.

Unless there just happened to be two of them flitting about at the same time, that's at least 200 miles distant, indicating a speed in excess of 100,000 MPH.

Whatever it was, it didn't come from Earth.

All I know is "Safety not Guaranteed" and it has only been done "once" before and you must bring your own weapons LOL

I have mastered forward time travel...I have arrived here from the past to write this today. I have not been able to travel back in time for more than a moment or two yet though and it seems those moments are facilitated not with a flux capacitor but rather certain songs.

As you approach the speed of light, time (and space) flow approaches zero and mass approaches infinity. Theoretically, there's not enough energy to make an infinitely heavy mass move any faster than the speed of light.

If you went back in time, why would you be able to view your younger self as an independent person different than your travelling self? Wouldn't your travelling self have to be that younger self once you arrived at your time destination? If you get on a plane and go to HI, do you find an alternate self to look at when you get there?

Were it possible to do so, I'd imagine you'd never find your former self.

YOU: "Mrs Jones, didn't you have a little boy?"

Your Mom: "We did, but he disappeared without a trace recently. Why do you ask? Might you have information of his whereabouts?"

What about the speedy neutrinos: Researchers at CERN break “The Speed of Light”. Supposedly they beat out photons by half a kilometer/second!

The experiment in question was reported in 2011, not year. Unfortunately, it was an improperly screwed in cable that led to the anomaly:

Also, note the date of the Science News Reporter article, and the tags at the bottom of the article.

Most UFOs demonstrate high speed like this, and also the ability to vanish into thin air, or make themselves invisible the naked eye.


I would be interested in these 4 classifications, where did you read that? From what I read weekly on the MUFON and NUFORC websites, majority of sightings involve circular, globular or spherical craft, next would be triangular, Chevron/boomerang shapes are seen often too, cylinders are another that is seen often, There are a few square and rectangular craft reported here and there, but they are not as common as the others.

I saw the original information and disclaimer. Then I spotted the newer article posted on April Fools Day. Of course I overlooked that little coincidence!
