I had done a lot of research about Aliens for my First Year engineering project. I had this dying urge to do something different and luckily I found another 7 guys who were equally (or more) goofy that I was.
After all the groups had finished making presentations of the future potential of hydraulic pumps and innovative breakthroughs in the field of micro-electronics, our group stepped up, dimmed the lights and let them have it. We covered everything from Area 51, to abductions to crop circles. People were actually so shocked that they did not know whether to get angry that we were doing the most blasphemous thing by presenting a thesis on Aliens at an Engineering college or … just gape.
Most of the people in the room took the other option. Since we had dimmed the lights, we had also given an ample chance for some of our classmates to catch up on some sleep. But think anyone slept? No, siree! The best part was, at the end of the entire presentation, we had the gall to announce a Q&A session. No one asked much. You don’t ask questions to a National Geographic documentary – you take it in, make the appropriate sounds and change the channel.
That was then. Today I saw a movie ‘I am Legend‘. This has nothing to do with Aliens, but somehow I was reminded of my old friends. So I checked on the only hard fact that cannot be denied by any man, machine or rat. Crop Circles.
If you don’t remember what Crop Circles are, flash back to the M. Night Shayamalam movie – ‘The Signs‘. Before, Mel Gibson started yelling “Swing Away”, something was giving a lot of fields on Earth a supernatural tattoo.
Scientifically, crop circles boggle the mind. Human mischief is always a suspect. But to imagine that someone would run riot on their on crops just to get their names in the news is far fetched. Okay, maybe not so much, but in so many places? Or maybe it was someone doing it to other people’s crops. Which is even more far-fetched as someone would have noticed something.
One theory, which has not been debated is the possibility that the plants or maybe insects below the plants maybe dying out in some way. Plants have been been known to exhibit precise geometric measurements internally. Maybe these plants died in some way that affected a nearby plant based on a formula. A formula to me is humanity’s way of fitting the creator’s thought into our less-empowered head. What may be logical and natural for a plant or a dung-weaver beetle may not at seem logical to us, till we see a formula for it.
In the Wiki site for crop circles, they claim that 80% of England’s Crop circles are a hoax. However, they also do say that a team from MIT in a documentary channel for Discovery could not recreate crop circle patterns in just one night.
And lastly, take a look at a crop circle that Google Maps picked up. The link is a natural link, so there’s no denying at least that this was a valid snapshot from a satellite. It’s in Darfield, England.
To me it looks like a mystery that will exist. Of course, the moment of truth will come when we meet some Aliens and the President of the United States, Barack Clinton Jr. (you think only Clinton Sr. can have all the fun?) meets the Alien Chief.
BCJ: So we meet at last
AC: tmybr ! aeoao ! ktuto eorhm
Since the president could not understand a simple alien talk, the rest of this conversation will be in English.
AC: Take me to your bathroom!!
BCJ: Not so fast buddy! Hold it in for a while. I don’t care you who are or where you’re from, but I think I should let you know, that you’re going down in a Blaze of Glory!
AC: Do you have any idea of how many excreting pores I have, you piece of s***. Oh I shouldn’t have said that! <Loud explosive noise from behind the monster>
BCJ: Oh sweet J.. What the heck was that smells like a cat just died in here. My nose, I can’t feel my nose!
AC: Sorry about that. I kinda lost control. Now, I must ask you, where is Captain Kirk. Our people have been waiting to battle him for ages.
BCJ: Oh you mean the Starship? Oil prices went too high, so we scrapped the project.
AC: Aaargh! I will wreak havoc on your planet. Commander, assemble the troops.
BCJ: Waitaminit! Haven’t you done enough already? I mean you’ve placed a suction pod in the Bermuda Triangle, you’re Himalayan agent is too conspicous and you’re been practicing drawing in our corn fields.
AC: Well, you’re right about teh first two, but the crop circle thing, it wasn’t me! I swear man! I wouldn’t do something like that. I would just kinda you know, blow the whole place up or something.
Well the day I hear Alien Chief say that, I’ll believe that the aliens didn’t do it.
