Moms are always complaining about how their kids won’t swallow food. But here’s one person whose mother probably had no such problem. In fact, her struggles were probably the opposite – trying to make him stop!
Flying saucers are generally associated with UFOs , with that "U" in there standing for "unidentified." But the saucer shape isn't just limited to aliens from outer space: there are a fair number of entirely identified terrestrial aircraft that utilize a more or less circular and saucery design. We've got a list of ten flying saucers for you, each of which made it far enough out of someone's imagination that at the very least a proof of concept was constructed. No blurry pictures that may or may-not-be-streetlights here: these are all real designs that actually existed.
Part of the problem is, of course, that the crackpots get the media attention over people who are investigating culture and mythology or looking for undiscovered species. Discovering something like the coelecanth doesn't get much buzz--even though it's a REALLY cool discovery, but the guy who swears there's a big predator that nobody's ever seen in Loch Ness and holds up blurry pictures as definitive proof, that guy we can't hear enough about. I'm not a big fan of some of the darker sides of Psudeoscience, but for Cryptozoology itself... I have a harder time being nasty about it. Okay, so Bigfoot doesn't exist, save in the public imagination.
And gay friends have Santorum.
