    All of the above items. Especially the UFO stories. The ones with abductions seem to enjoy reliving the anal probes. As for the birds, shootem and eatem.

    I dont have a list, but the most convincing UFO story that i know is the valentich disappearance.

    i was on one of the search vessels at the time. We found no wreckage in the week we spent searching....

    I first heard about this case on Unsolved Mysteries (US TV). It was actually one of the few cases they covered that was outside the United States.

    My father flew SAR helicopters for many years after transferring from fixed wing types. I remember him watching a TV show about the Bermuda triangle (he didn't much like television, but had trained with the USN at Pensacola) and harrumphing at the proposition put forward that ships/boats/aeroplanes could not possibly disappear with no trace, no wreckage, flotsam or jetsam found. He was adamant that this in fact was more often the case than not. The wreckage may be very small and an ocean is a very big place.
    He told me a story about a FAA aircraft which reported an engine fire and its position within 100 miles of Malta. He and several other helicopters and all sorts of other vessels searched in a classically expanding search pattern over several days and found absolutely nothing, even though they had a good idea where the aircraft must have gone into the Mediterranean.
    This was in the 1950s, before GPS and emergency radio beacons and all the other technology available today, as are many unexplained disappearances.
    Cheers
    Steve

    That is so true steve, but what made this a bit interesting were the radio exchanges from Valentic and the Tower in those final minutes.

    I don't believe in UFOs for the record.

    California was a Constitutional Republic before being admitted into the Union. Much like Texas, the State Constitution still allows a default claus if the Federal government fails to meet it's obligations. Meaning that the State can revert to a sovereign Republic once again.
