The Roswell Slides That Aren’t!

Well, what a gigantic fiasco last night turned out to be. Yeah, you know what I'm talking about: the unveiling of the so-called "Roswell Slides." What else? Yeah, I know I have hemmed and hawed over them for the past 18 months, chiefly because of some of the very odd things that went on in the background, such as the matter of a certain computer hacker, and unidentified sources spilling certain beans.

But, last night was, without doubt, the final straw. Enough is indeed enough. It's ironic that now we finally get to see the high-resolution image of lil' ol' Rozzy, he/she/it looks more like a child-mummy than ever. The low-resolution image, admittedly, did not - at least, not to a significant degree, it didn't. The smooth skin, in particular, looked very unlike that of a mummy. Now, though, we can see that was merely due to a resolution issue. The greater the resolution, the greater the realization becomes that this is indeed a mummy.

We may not know where the images were taken (yet...), but I'm betting a freak-show, museum, menagerie, display, or something similar. And here's why I think the so-called "Roswell Slides" were taken in some sort of aforementioned museum or freak show. Take a close and careful look at this link, which will take you to a large-size image of the high-quality slide. Forget, just for a moment or several, if such a thing is possible, the body that is causing all of the fuss. And, instead, look at what is specifically behind the head of the body.


You'll see yet another head, which looks very much like a wolf head angled downwards, and where you can see hair, the eye, muzzle, and even teeth below the muzzle. And, you can see the back of the small placard that sits in front of it, too, and which presumably explains what it shows: the preserved head of an animal. With that in mind, it's obvious now that we are looking at some sort of museum, or menagerie, or circus type thing for entertainment purposes.

What we are not looking at is a secret lab where aliens (dead or alive) are held. And, in light of that wolfish head that I refer you to, anyone who suggests the government has a secret lab in the Nevada desert, where they store the remains of dead werewolves, will be punched severely about the jaw and ribs.

I sincerely hope this sorry affair will now be brought to a swift, and decisive, end. Mind you, this is Ufology I'm talking about, so of course it won't come to a swift and decisive end! It will drone on for bloody years!

Aliens are near

The biggest tragedy in this utterly sorry saga is that Roswell - in my view, anyway - is still a genuine enigma of very mysterious proportions. But, the slides have done nothing but utterly damage the investigation into what really happened on the Foster Ranch, Lincoln County, New Mexico in the summer of 1947. And, just maybe, the slides have damaged the investigation to a 100 percent, irreversible degree.

I'm sure I'll still have much more to say on the slides as the days progress. I'm also absolutely sure none of it will be good news - at least, not for those who still valiantly cling onto the idea that a child mummy is really an alien.

Mind you, there is another theory that just might save the day for the true-believers: given the appearance of that other head, what about the notion that the aliens secretly train captured shape-shifting wolf-men to guard their craft when they land in our hostile environment?

PS: Yes, that question was meant as sarcasm, in case some people didn't get it.
