Hi Chris,

Thanks for your input on my Bogus Hall of Fame. However,
I just checked and found that mass hallu was actually
number 5, in between the cultural aberration of French
speaking Belgium and Aurora/Senior Citizen.

But I found there were a few items missing as well,
so in fact you alerted me to the danger of losing
these gems of pseudo-science for all time, which
would be a huge disservice to Ufology, to lend a
line from the Duke.

However, I expect new bogus to come up in time. Some
people are so allergic to the facts that I'd rather
team up with the Duke to form a salsa band and
teach my sister's dog to dance the macarena before
trying to convince them.

Actually I was thinking if anyone can provide me Bogus
Explanation 20 (BE 20) before Christmas, he/she would
win the miniature white elephant.

Oh, I thought I had hallucinated them.
