Over the weekend, The New York Times released an exhaustive report on a secret and not fully declassified government program that studied U.F.O sightings within the Department of Defense that seems to indicate there have been documented alien visits to our planet.
They even have video. That's right — one of the most highly contest debates and scientific mysteries of our time is getting dangerously close to being solved — and we have video footage that could very well prove it, one way or another — and people are just carrying with their every day lives. No big deal. Business as usual. Seriously.
You can even check out the footage for yourself:
The reports says there have been many sighting of aircraft, as well as recovered materials that include alloys that don't exist on earth and which had "strange effects" on the people who handled them. Whatever. This is totally normal and definitely something we should all be ignoring. Of course.
Perhaps this would be big news literally any other year, but with the pressing and overwhelming issues in politics, culture, and abroad, the most anyone seems to be mustering for aliens being real is a "meh." Folks are responding with less fervor than they do to a Trump tweet, perhaps because a tweet from Trump is more likely to start a nuclear war. If aliens have been visiting, that's fine. But did they vote third party?!
Until a space ship literally lands on the White House and crushes the entire Trump administration, I don't think anyone will really get as excited about this as they should be. Which is a shame, but I get it. We want to see them, if you know what I mean.
Well, do you?
