Thanks to the Bugle podcast for noting this, the curious story of a Brazilian farmer… Antônio Vilas-Boas (in many English sources misspelled “Villas-Boas”) (1934?1991) was a Brazilian farmer (later a lawyer) who claimed to have been abducted by extraterrestrials in 1957. Though similar stories had circulated for years beforehand, Vilas Boas’ claims were among the […]A

Here’s one statement that really stood out for me this weekend. The whole emphasis now will be on painting those who want abortion on demand, and those who want no abortion, as similarly extreme, and the fallacy of the middle ground will be trotted out again and again. In this view, the ?moderate? position is […]A

Seeing as I’ve mentioned John Christopher, I have been rereading his trilogy – The Tripods, and it?s extremely readable as well as thought-provoking. Christopher is now better known for that work and other of his what is these days termed YA fiction than his John Wyndhamesque, albeit not too cosy, catastrophe fiction that he in […]A

This was reported earlier in the week… Using a radar sounder system that can examine underground structures, the orbiter initially found an opening 50 metres wide and 50 metres deep, prompting speculation that there could be a larger hollow. This week scientists at the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Jaxa) confirmed the presence of a cave […]A

IEL pointed to this a short while back? UK government papers from 1987 that reveal: Margaret Thatcher was briefed by civil servants when she was prime minister that punk was ?the most extreme form of ?pop? rebellion? and had peaked under the previous Labour government, newly released private papers reveal. Thatcher was also told before […]A

I?d wondered about this, the Cuban ?sonic attacks? where by US diplomats have reported a range of unusual symptoms seemingly caused by some form of low level attack. It seemed unlikely that the Cubans would be doing it, they?ve little or nothing to gain by irritating a Trump led US. And who else would bother. […]A
