There is no fucking way so few sightings have been reported in Russia.

quite. USA Today ran front-page sketches of the Voronezh aliens; they were a global phenomenon far more prominent than Roswell.

    A policeman sees a drunk man searching for something under a streetlight and asks what the drunk has lost. He says he lost his keys and they both look under the streetlight together. After a few minutes the policeman asks if he is sure he lost them here, and the drunk replies, no, and that he lost them in the park. The policeman asks why he is searching here, and the drunk replies, "this is where the light is".


Graphics such as this say a lot more about the data source than what it professes to illuminate. That said, the actual data on actual unidentified flying objects is centered around Palmdale, Okinawa and Mildenhall.

Hm. I wonder if there is some other possible explanation for them.....................?

Their tastes are far more refined than that. Their love is entirely of Lockheed.

It was really something visiting the Little Ale-E-Inn and seeing an autographed photo of Chuck Yeager opposite an autographed photo of Bob Lazar. About as on-the-nose as you can get.
