Daily 2 Cents: Maussan Claimed 'Alien' Corpses Before -- Classified Ad Refuses to Die -- Possible Landing Site

Maussan Known For Alien Hoaxes

The man behind the release of the so-called 'smoking gun' new Roswell photographs has previously been linked to a series of alien hoaxes.

Jamie Maussan, claimed to have proof of the notorious alleged UFO crash, once paid £15,000 for a skinned monkey believing it was an alien corpse.

He also supported one of the most astonishing alien hoaxes ever attempted.

Mr Maussan sold tickets to see the first release of copies of slides purporting to show the Roswell alien corpse at the 'Be Witness to the Change in History' event in New Mexico, America.

The photos promised to be historic and irrefutable proof of the legendary UFO crash near the New Mexico town of Roswell in 1947.

But the long-awaited disclosure has been widely panned by sceptics and even UFO hunters as a damp squib, with many suggesting the picture shows a mummified human child in a museum exhibit case.

The Roswell story is that the US military found an alien corpse in a crashed space craft on a remote ranch but kept it hidden from the public ever since.

It has long been regarded as the world's biggest alien mystery, since it first emerged. Read more at ROSWELL: Man behind 'irrefutable UFO crash proof' linked to string of alien hoaxes


The unbelievable backstory of the 18-year-old classified ad that refuses to die

In 1997, John Silveira was asked to come up with fillers for unsold ad space in the magazine he was writing for. The clock was ticking, and he decided to just place two ads of his own. He needed to get the page filled up fast and get on with his day.

The first ad that Silveira placed was a personal ad he’d written in hopes of finding a girlfriend. For the second, he chose a fake “wanted” classified. In it he included the opening lines of a sci-fi novel he’d been working on.

Here’s the ad:

WANTED: Somebody to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. P.O. Box 322, Oakview, CA 93022. You’ll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed. I have only done this once before.

Posting the ad in the magazine was hilarious, an inside joke Silveira had with himself. He figured no one would really notice it.

He was wrong.

The ad led to an explosive volume of letter responses, a series of internet memes with millions of views. It was the inspiration for a critically acclaimed indie movie in 2011, “Safety Not Guaranteed,” starring comedian Aubrey Plaza, 14 years after the ad ran.

And it still won’t die. Read more at The unbelievable backstory of the 18-year-old classified ad that refuses to die


Possible Landing Site

Lenoir, NC - 5/15/1965: Myself, my two brothers and several of our cousins were gathered at my aunts house on [REMOVED LOCATION] celebrating her marriage. The group of us kids went for a walk down the road to where there was a trail leading up a small mountain to a cleared out area on top used by a local church for picnics. We all went up to the top and were kicking around a soccer ball. At one point the ball went off the back side of the clearing and into the spindly pine trees that were roughly 30 to 40 feet tall. I went down to retrieve the ball and once having it, I happened to look up into the tree tops. This is when I observed a circular bowl-like depression roughly 40 to 50 feet in diameter in the tree tops. The depression was maybe 15 to 20 feet deep at it's center point. I ran up to the clearing again and told my brothers and cousins about it and we all went back down to look at it. Everyone was speculating as to what had caused the depression. Some said it was a tornado type wind. We discussed this and it was unanimous that this was not the cause of the depression because all the tree tops were laid out in the shape of a "bowl" with the tree tops laid out evenly all around and not twisted in a circle as if caused by a circular wind like a tornado. We discussed this situation for some time and could not determine what may have caused the depression in the trees. The only thing we could think of that could cause such a depression was a UFO. We all laughed about this but could not determine any other explanation that would explain the cause of the depression. This explanation sort of spooked us so we decided to go on back down to my aunts house. Eventually, being young kids with no experience investigating UFOs or knowledge of organization that investigated such, we just let the experience fade away into our past. I have discussed this sighting with both my brothers and they remember it vividly. I, as well as my two brothers have experienced other sightings of suspicious lights in the night skies that were obviously not from known air craft due to their movements in speed and angle of flight. - MUFON CMS


The bizarre theme park ride that simulates cremation

The wise, and even scientists, will have their explanations as to why people enjoy being frightened in theme parks.

I hope, though, that even they might struggle to explain why people go to a theme and get on a ride in which they have their bodies burned to soot. Metaphorically, that is.

Window Of The World is a slightly ambitious theme park in Shenzen, China. It has tinges of Las Vegas, with models of London's Tower Bridge and Rome's Colosseum.

But even Vegas would surely turn its newly-shaved back on the notion of a ride called "The Cremator."

This is very much what it sounds like. You start in a morgue, where you are placed into a wooden coffin. You then roll along to be burned to death. Because, well, fun. Because, well, "Six Feet Under" ended a long time ago.

I am grateful to the Daily Mail for bringing this to my attention, so that I never, ever go near the place.

Of course, you'll be wondering what fine technology the Cremator's creators have used to simulate your ultimate doom.

It seems to be nothing more than hot air. Yes, powerful hot air machines give you the feeling of the final steps before you become the content of an urn on your family's mantelpiece.

I have no information what happens, should you actually die in one of these things, or suffer a debilitating event of some kind.

Still, I blame blockbuster movies. The special effects enacted in them has made the weak entity known as the human seek effects that they believe will be special to them.

It's not enough for us to enjoy the natural sensations that come from simple, innate behavior. No, we must use every aspect of narcotic invention and every nuance of scientific possibility to make ourselves feel things we never thought possible.

What's odd to me is that none of the excited hordes who flock to this glorious ride seem to consider one thing: when you're being cremated you're (hopefully) already dead.

So you don't feel a thing. - The bizarre theme park ride that simulates cremation
