Hi All,

LMAO! _These_ are the guys who are going to evaluate last years
progress (or lack of it) in ufology?

Isn't this also a list of names of the same guys that are at the
root of _what_is_wrong_ with ufology?

And Art Bell is hosting! Oh man, this is just too rich. Excuse
me while I drop off my chair (again) and roll around on the
floor laughing my keester off.

There is a physics lesson hidden in here somewhere. Let me see
if I can sus it out, . . .

A. Art Bell is the most full of sh*t of the lot.

B. So it stands to reason that he has more 'mass' than the

C. Therefore, his gravitational pull on the other smaller
'turds' causes them to, . . .

D. gravitate towards Bell. - Where, . . .

E. . . . they eventually assume permanent orbits around their

How was that?

A good 'empirical' test of this theory would be to flush, and
then carefully observe - a toilet. (Following a substantial
bowel movement.) Same 'principle' applies here with only one
glaring exception: *Unless you are South of the Equator. In
which case the "planetoids" will orbit the "main mass" in a
counter clockwise direction!


Talk about "piled high and deep!"

Actually I'm still waiting to see if Bell ever pays a price for
the Hale-Bopp/Mothership series. There _is_ a connection between
that and the deaths in the Heavens Gate Cult that neither one of
those two irresponsible bozos (Bell and the other jamoke from
the "Nearsight Institute" that propagated that hoax - apologies
to Bob Shell for using his 'moniker') ever had to answer for.
People died.

No one involved in the perpetration/propagation of that
disinformation was ever called to task. Phoney photos from
(allegedly) a Hawiian observatory showing the 'companion' were
circulated worldwide, the constant barrage of programs from Bell
that were _dedicated_ to Hale-Bopp (or Hale-Mary as Bell so
cutely christened it.) After the dust settled there were very
real bodies left behind in that little fiasco. But hush, hush,
mums the word! Remember never to mention any possible

Nor were they ever called to task for the 'side show' that he
and Hoagland staged in Phoenix. (Which helped to
create/contribute to a carnival atmosphere around a
"potentially" significant case) They made a slew of absurd
"predictions" on national radio (none of which ever transpired)
and no one ever mentions it or questions it. Just move on and
feed on the next thing.  It's 'Short Attention Span Theatre' for
the masses.

If it wasn't for Bell, Hoagland would be retired from ufology,
Greer would be just another 'wrong number' and Gersten wouldn't
have a shot at further spreading his particular/peculiar brand
of popular fluff.

It's just one side show after another.  Just show after show,
after show, year in, year out, ... well, you get the picture.
Bell is the King of the "Cliffhangers." He's a master showman
and he knows how to work a crowd better than any side show
carny. But in the final analysis that is all that he is; just
another side show carny.

It's true. Most comedy (things that are funny) have tragedy at
the core. Brings images of Emmet Kelly to mind. Actually, that
is _my_ image/evaluation/portrayal of the guys on Bells ufology
evaluation committee.

A bunch of tragic clowns who get to laugh all the way to the
bank. At the public's expense.
