Things were really quiet this weekend, but suddenly something really big was brought to our attention by the blaring sirens and flashing lights of the Drool-o-tron™. The blinking letters of its wall display said WorldNetDaily (WND). As you know, WND was an early winner of the Curmudgeon’s Buffoon Award, thus the jolly logo displayed above this post.
The Drool-o-tron™ had locked our computer onto this article at WND’s website: Report: NASA cuts live feed as UFOs fly past Earth.
Wow — that’s the most exciting headline we’ve ever seen! WND has a very active comment section at the end. Their article says, with bold font added by us:
Mysterious footage said to depict three UFOs racing by Planet Earth is causing an out-of-this-world discussion on YouTube, as some people think it’s proof-positive of alien life. The 4-minute long video titled “UFO Mysteries: UFOs, Angels Or Biological Creatures Seen Leaving The Earth?” was uploaded a week ago and has more than 214,000 views.
“Mysterious footage”? UFOs? This is what they’re talking about:
As they say, the video is almost 4 minutes long, and YouTube has over 260 comments. We watched the thing. The first minute and a half is nothing. The UFOs which then show up are also likely to be nothing. Nevertheless, WND tells their drooling readers:
The video, reportedly shot from the International Space Station, shows three unidentified flying objects shooting upward out of Earth’s atmosphere. Just when the lights appear to blast off the planet, the video feed is cut by NASA, with a message subsequently displayed on screen stating: “Please stand by. The High Definition Earth Viewing experiment is either switching cameras, or we are experiencing a s temporary loss of signal with the International Space Station.”
Clearly it’s another government conspiracy. The rest of WND’s article is a bunch of the YouTube comments that they though were worth repeating, followed by some quotes from a couple of newspapers that have reported on the video.
A skeptic may think it’s not much of a story, but it was good enough for WND. Hey — it makes as much sense as creationism. Let us know what you think of it.
