New Bragalia Non-Roswell Posting

Anthony Bragalia has slipped us a piece that I've placed online at his personal blog with us:

Some may like it. (I don't)



  • Seem to be a case of talk about anything but the elephant in the room.

  • RRRG-

    ...perhaps next, between the intensity of those frequent 'The Roswell Dream Team'(tm) face-to-face research meetings and investigative journeys, Professor Braglia could look into the true mystery for us of who is buried in Grant's Tomb?

  • Never heard of these 'flying humans'. But I have heard of the flying exploits of psychic Daniel Dunglas Home during seances (?) held in London during the late Victorian/early Edwardian period.

    Obviously the flying humans of the present are a bit more sophisticated.

  • I prefer the rarified science and investigation of how the squirrels keep getting into my bird feeders. If that mystery could be solved, it just might mean another esoteric mystery can be crossed off my list.

  • I hate squirrels...but I seem to hate everything lately. It's an age/health thing...or maybe dementia.

  • I hate squirrels!

  • Maybe I'll take my obtuse meandering and start a blog about squirrels and their connection to flying humanoids.
    Do they have squirrels in Roswell? You are not alone in being onry. I woke up this morning and my labrador took a shit in the middle of the family room.Some things I don't have to think much about, and sometimes thats a blessing.

  • For crankiness is age/health related.

    By Blogger RRRGroup, at Saturday, August 24, 2013  

  • It is age related, thats my excuse. Between four horses, three cats, and four dogs, all I do is pick up shit. Whether it's speculative shit or material shit, as they say down here, "makes no difference to me" I could sit on my porch all day long and shout at folks telling them how stupid they are. Nobody would listen to me anyway.They might throw more shit at me. You cant avoid it. At my age even bacon and eggs for breakfast gets old.

  • ...speaking of squirrels,one finds that Doctor Randle (and his guests) seem to enjoy discussing them:

    "So, the moment I learned the truth, that Kaufmann had created documents, that we had copies of both the originals and the fakes, I told Mark Rodeghier of the J. Allen Hynek Center for UFO Studies that we needed to publish the results."

    "Iron Mike said...
    This Korff, he seems of interest to squirrels. Let us ignore him and thwart his bid for attention. Lock your doors though."

  • P.S. for B.D. -

    ...perhaps all your current problems could be solved by keeping the bird feeders indoors, and the dogs outdoors.....

  • O.T. regarding the 'Music of the Kimball'-

    ...while I enjoy Jimmy Buffett as previously stated (the second song on this week's album release is a sincere tribute to Albert Einstein - 'Einstein was a Surfer'),
    I mostly listen to the best classical music station on the internet,

  • MORE OT:

    ...some interesting ufo-related quotes follow, that I found here:
    Pseudoscience, Flying Saucers, etc.

    "I frankly don't care if someone thinks I'm going to hell after death and I'm not going to argue with him for the same reason I'm not going to argue with someone who believes that I'm going to the lost continent of Atlantis after dinner." - Dan Savage

    "The hardest thing about being a skeptic is maintaining a level of politeness.” - Phil Platt

    "The moon landings were real but the moon LAUNCHINGS were faked." -pesch

    "Fairies, assuming for the sake of argument that they exist, are not within the protection of the law of murder." - Granville Williams, Law Quarterly Review, 1949

    "There may be aliens visiting Earth, but I can't figure out why they only seem to abduct the schizophrenics." -Martha A. Churchill

    "Inspect every piece of pseudoscience and you will find a security blanket." -Isaac Asimov

    "It is difficult, if not impossible, to use UFO research for tenure." -Mark Rodeghier

    "Alas, to wear the mantle of Galileo it is not enough that you be persecuted by an unkind establishment, you must also be right." -Robert L. Park

    "It is unquestionable that certain words and ceremonies will effectually destroy a flock of sheep, if administered with a sufficient portion of arsenic." -Voltaire

    "It's extremely unlucky to be superstitious, for no other reason than it is always unlucky to be colossally stupid." -Stephen Fry

    "Even for those of us who don't see black helicopters under our beds, conspiracy theory has become the horoscope of the late 1990s." -Mark Dery

    "Bigfoot then, seems to be an alien shape-shifting being that may possibly be able to slip into alternate dimensions or worlds. We think." -Eric Beckjord

  • ..please DO NOT let Professor Bragalia see this:

  • At the risk of taking us off topic ;) , I think the flying humanoids are RC balloons. But, maybe its squirrels though.

    By Blogger Bob Koford, at Saturday, August 24, 2013  

  • Mr. Peters - the aerial rodents in question are truly amazing little animals. I have a friend who has them as pets and she keeps them uncaged most of the time. It's great fun to see them zipping around from bookcase to mantle to sofa back, etc. However, it's a bit disconcerting when one decides to land on you. However, they are a charming reminder of the wonderful diversity Nature has gifted to us, and why our tragedy as a species is not the making protecting that diversity our highest priority.

  • I think squirrels will be attracted to these comments, and you all know why...

  • Squirrels are cunning creatures who beguile us with their cuteness. It's best not to trust them or give them too much bird seed. ;-)

  • ...yet the terrestrial first cousin of our beloved squirrel, the mouse, has been theorized to be behind most of Professor Bragalia's most favorite UFO reports, simply because:

    "Mice are the physical protrusions into our dimension of a race of hyperintelligent pan-dimensional beings who commissioned the construction of the Earth to find the Question to the Ultimate Answer of Life, the Universe, and Everything. As such, they are the most intelligent life form on that planet, contrary to what humans think..."

  • KP:

    You know you're nuts, right?

    I'd stay away from squirrels if I were you.
