Last 24 Hours:

Balsa wood and UFO (plus a few asses)

Wednesday, February 22, 2017 7:26
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Over at my pal, Kevin Randle’s blog [, Kevin put a note about balsa wood that appeared in a military memo that some have tried to tie to the Roswell incident (Kevin included also).

Go and read the asinine comments. They display the ignorance that occupies much of the UFO topic.

Balsa wood is endemic to various tropical countries of this Earth:

That an alien species, implied by some of the ET believers that hang out at Kevin’s blog, would have access to trees, unique to Earth and its Darwinian evolution is ludicrous; spaceships traveling here from the outer reaches of space built of model airplane construction materials is more than a laugh, it’s madness.

And while the commentary about balsa constructed aircraft of Earth may apply — a “crash” of a test plane near Roswell in 1947 — the commentary is likewise ludicrous.

The Roswell debris was so sparse that it had to be the remnants of a balloon array or something similar.

That the argument against a balloon as the “prime suspect” for the Roswell hubbub still resonates with many UFO buffs and is not just sad, it’s a prime example of delusional ignorance.

Some think (as seen in comments here previously) that such foolishness as exhibited by Kevin’s followers is cute. I do not think it is.

The ongoing stupidity of the Roswell “arguments” is a madness I keep writing.

That madness is killing the UFO matter, as some of Kevin’s regular commenters (PurrlGurrl and Lance Moody among them) keep pointing out.

Balsa wood and UFOs: a not funny or cute addendum to the UFO phenomenon.
