    Amazing.
    I genuinely read that story in awe of the guy (except the threatening behaviour bit). :)

    15 years would pretty much see me to retirement.

    Sadly, i think my boss & colleagues would notice.

    Although, thinking on it, we did once encounter a medic who claimed to be at our research institute to their colleagues, and told us they were at the hospital. They got sway with it for a few weeks until they got found out they were chilling at home.

    Not getting any research progress does tend to be noticed! 😃

    Wtf?

    Did they use TNT to try and blast the shape of a cock or a fanny into a mountainside or something to reveal what it was?

    A couple of people died at one in Mexico as well when a plane crashed.

    I don't understand people and their desperate need to gain attention for the sex of their unborn progeny on social media. But then I don't understand a lot of things these days.

    Everyone who knows the know is definitely in the know about the know. Need to know, you don't know. Know what I know?

    He knows everything about nothing, and not too much about that
    If you know someone who knows what he's knows, then you must know remotecontrol's a twat.

    To be fair UFO aren't necessarily aliens - just unidentified

    But I would like to see a source that confirms that the USAF confirmed it was legit.

    Ooh but it sure is good to park in those golden spaces right by the entrance at the end of the rows with nothing between the space and the road but some hazard lines. :)
