This sound like an interesting, ah, experiment.

Michael: Thank you for #1 above.

Regarding #2, I don't think you can prove much, in all fairness,
unless the "pigeons" being hoaxed are pretty much the same group
as the people being warned in advance!

Clearly, the alt.alien.visitors newsgroup, as well as this List
are warned as per the above.

If however, the hoax succeeds not with these groups, but instead
with the audience of some late night talk show etc. then you
haven't proven anything we could not have predicted in advance!

May I suggest that you try and publicize your hoax in the making
on the Art Bell show for example? How about some little press
releases? Local newspapers might find it interesting enough to

Naturally, there are people on any list who will believe
anything no matter what. Again, if their numbers are relatively
small, nothing new is proven.

Best regards
