I'm tellin ya, it's "Area 52"!
STEP AWAY FROM THE BONG!
But that's "Television," always sinking down to the lowest common denominator, in the business of selling an audience to its advertisers. It's an inefficient deliverer of that product and a flawed media, on its eventual way out.
I guess we can all remember when MTV was about Music, too. Now it's "about" trashy, frighteningly ignorant arrested adolescents stupid enough to think they discovered sex.
I don’t know what it is, but you can bet that creep Mitt Romney didn’t report it on his taxes!
My reaction to any program with the word “alien” in the title < click>.
Their series, “The Universe” also ticks me off, they sensationalize everything, give undo emphasis to the obscure and dubious, when the real Universe is fascinating enough on its own.
60 meters across.
I wondered what happened to the rest of Al Roker.
Great logic: I don't know therefore its aliens!
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence. Not the reverse.
A lot of ships went down in the Baltic in WW II. The Germans built their Submarines (U Boats) and other Vessels in their shipyards in Kiel which is a Baltic Port. Kiel was bombed extensively during the war and a lot of U-Boats went down in the Baltic. As a matter of fact, Hitler built a Memorial to the fallen U-Boat sailors which still stands at the entrance to the Harbor at Kiel and German Sailors still stand at attention on deck as they pass the memorial. There is a military cemetary in Kiel where half of it is dedicated to Graman Sailors lost in the war and the other half to British Aviators lost bombing the German Sailors. I will bet that what they are detecting at the bottom of the Baltic is a lost WW II Vessel.
Remember when the History Channel used to be about history?
Yeah, I do.
I think speculation is that it's a prototype of the round Russian battleship, Novgorod.
To me, it doesn’t even look like an “object”.
It looks like a “formation”.
Often referred to as the Round Tuit.
I hope you two are satisfied, destroying a good speculative thread with actual facts.
It’s just another Russian nuke sub with a damaged screen door.
Wow, that thing must have been almost impossible to steer or control.
“Wow, that thing must have been almost impossible to steer or control.”
That’s where the aliens come in!
Neither Yahoo, CNN nor I got the memo. Thanks for linking the prior thread.
Apparently the recoil from the main guns caused the ship to spin.
Novgorod and her near-sister Rear Admiral Popov proved poorly designed in use. They pitched and rolled excessively, even in moderate seas. They were slow, poorly maneuverable, and vulnerable to plunging fire. Worst though, was that the off-axis recoil of the guns would impart a centrifugal rotation to the ship. In operational use, these ships would have to throw their single rudder hard over during firing, to act as "water brakes". This severely restricted the aiming and rate-of-fire of the main guns.
Some sunken artifact from the ruin of Beleriand no dobut!
Numenor was further out to sea.
So that's where the GOP elephant ended up
Crescent Wrench of the Gods?
I saw this on the Fox News page over a year ago. It appears to be the wreck of the Novgorod.
Are you kidding? I’m so old, I remember when MTV played music videos!
So obviously George Lucas is an alien....I always suspected!
I think I can clear this up. What we have here is a “Round Tuit”. For many years, our wives have asked us when we were going to get a “Round Tuit”, and we had no good answer to give them. But now, we can explain that the reason we haven’t gotten a “Round Tuit” yet is because it’s at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. Any other questions?
Yeah well I am so old I remember when country music was country. LOL
Gives new meaning to those Bone Collector stickers on all those 4x4 trucks.
Could it be nobama’s birth certificate?
Yep. IT is owned by an ABC/NBC consortium. I used to really like it, but all the “reality” shows that have no historical significance, like Axemen, IRT, etc ahve turned me off. I still watch it when Modern Marvels is on (and not repeating), though it too ahs succumed to the “climate change” crap.
I also used to watch SciFi until NBC ruined it.
Don’t some sci-fi/horror movies start that way?
How deep was the water? If you can tell me the depth, I can generate a number for the dying ships speed when it hit the bottom. All the other values, except gross tonnage are constants.
The shape of the wreck reminds me of a picture of a sunken oil drilling ship complete with it's detachable platform.
You and I are on the same page. We were watching that show, and I told my wife if aggressive aliens ever showed up we'd be dead instantly -- either biological, nano, or some other tech that targets whatever lifeform you want eradicated. There'd be no fight -- none.
I agree. If either of you read David Weber, that's how he had the aggressive aliens wipe out the populous. Develop a virus, seed the atmosphere and vioci, there you go, nice clean world to inhabit.
But is it really wrong of me to hope that one day we'll get to see a real UFO? :-)
It is just as likely the aliens would find our planet uninhabitable, filled with viruses and bacteria that they have no immunity to. H.G. Wells all over again.
They don't even need a virus, let alone fancy weapons. All they'd need would be a very L-O-U-D sustained noise. Sounds that are loud enough can kill people. Or drive them mad.
For about 12 years now, I've had a recurring dream (only once or twice a year) with the same theme: My sweetheart and I are outdoors on a beautiful day, people are picnicking, boating, having fun, and all of the sudden the sky becomes alive with beautiful fripperies -- not fireworks, but beautiful phenomenon, almost like ribbons, colorful and festive. Everyone looks up and all are charmed, delighted, because clearly this is a show put on for our entertainment. The fripperies are soon accompanied by a VAST spaceship with smaller ships around it, and about 90 percent of the people are excited because it appears that extraterrestrial aliens have announced themsevles in such a friendly way, clearly meaning no harm.
Meanwhile, we and a small handful of others realize that this is a very bad thing, and immediately head for underground labyrinths of caves and tunnels -- we always seem to know where they are and head straight for them. Details have varied from dream to dream, but the basics are always the same -- it always happens near a largish body of water -- a lake or a bay -- and we smart few escape underground while the gullible majority joyously embrace the arrival of these aliens. In one of the dreams, I remember, as I started to head underground into the labyrinth, I looked up at the sky one last time and wondered how long it would be -- how many generations it would be -- before people were able to surface again safely.
The dream puzzled me -- why underground? About a year ago, I came up with a theory: underground would be one place people could escape being bombarded with skull-exploding sound.
Hey, it's just a dream, and I haven't had it for awhile, but, for what it's worth!
Right. Much more likely to be aliens. Thanks AF!

Oh, hell, it’s the Tommyknockers. Lock up the soda machines!
Nah. Any Culture warship worth its salt would simpily displace a solar effector into the sun and change its output or make it go nova from several light years away.
Your dreams are most fitting and plausible and quite congruent with those of many the last 10 years or so.
I’m curious how many on our END TIMES LIST have had some
END TIMES WW3 or other massive END TIMES calamity sorts of dreams or visions that you’d be willing to share.
Perhaps someone could start a thread for such or share such here???
I hate when that happens... I am not personally familiar with Mr. Cussler’s works beyond his obvious popularity. The same thing happened with a crime fiction writer I enjoy though - after the war started I noticed the books became more and more politically charged (just bits here and there, but enough that I noticed it). I used to like the books a lot, and now I just pass up the name when I’m looking for something new (or to get an old hardback).
Thanks for the ping!
