Pilgrims,

Hopeless attempt at humour. Arf arf. As the man say: 'Your
either on the bus or you're off the bus' I guess you're still
waiting at the bus stop!

All my books are 'honest'. That's why they're so well
referenced. So I can point the pedants to the source material.

Arrogance, Stuart

Many have become the basis of much of Ufology as it is today (ie
Adamski). Hoaxes are done to test the abilities and procedures
of researchers. If they can't solve hoaxes then they should take
up knitting. The fact that they wind the believers up is
evidence of the above. If no one was bothered I wouldn't be sat
here watching Eastenders and trying to eat my tea whilst
typing.

Stuart, I don't know what part of the multiverse you inhabit! I
manage a hostel for chaotic offenders, drug users etc. I see and
deal with _real_ 'venemous aggression' each and every day and
have done for 14 years. The name calling I see on this List
doesn't even get the needle off the bottom of the dial when it
comes to 'venemous aggression'.

>Do you wear Hi Tech walking boots?

Possibly intended as humour/irony/sarcasm? You can never tell
with Stuart. But no. Brasher boots (goretex lined) for hill
walking, Walsh's for running. Only the best MI5 issue for me
Stuart!

Good. Incidentally, the new issue of Magonia has an excellent
article by Mendoza all about Jerry Clark, his inability to
debate correctly and his inability to distinguish historical
fact from ufological speculation. It also contains the rules for
Jerry Clark bingo!


Happy Trails
