Here is an interesting one.....

Today I met an old retired Air Force officer who claims that in
the 1960s the Air Force conducted secret projects concerning
possible communcations with alien life forms.

This fellow is the Uncle of a friend who was here in town to

He said one project was called "Contour". He said that this
project involved understanding "linguistic fundamentals of
communication between different species", and that one part of
the project focused on understanding how "primates such as a
gorilla might be taught to communicate."

According to this retired officer, the Air Force was "publically
disregarding UFOs," but privately was involved in "intense
research concering inter-species communication."

He explained how one fascinating part of the project involved
taking a gorilla that had been raised amongst humans and taught
"basic sign language" back into the field to see how it related
to and communicated with wild gorillas and if the domesticated
gorilla could act as a"go-between" to communicate between the
researchers and the wild gorillas.

All of this was supposed to have happened to, "help us learn
fundamentals of language that could be helpful in communcication
with alien species."

I kid you not.

This is what he told me.
