Maize and "corn" are not necessarily the same species.

Maize is an ancient grain, but "corn" is a modern term/grain...

Except perhaps in the UK.

Could one of our UK superstars elucidate?

Corn was the term for a nation's most popular crop, and in the UK that would be wheat. Nowadays, we tend to use corn to mean Maize.

So we need to know if that 'maize' was really wheat, corn, or the Mexican original (actual) maize variety from 10,000 years ago.

...or whether or not corn is simply referred to as "maize" in Scotland and the British Isles (it is).

Pretty sure it's done to differentiate from the barley (and also wheat) "corn/s", which has a much stronger foothold in Scotland agriculturally than maize "corn/s".

Well there went that lead...I doubt we will ever know which grain was involved, as the term is so generic.

It's sad what straws we grasp at for the tiniest possible puzzle piece.

Of course we do. It was what we Americans would call "corn", and not barley or whet. Simple as that. The word "maize is pretty specific. It's an important element in the story if we are to take it as a "UFO trace case" because in terms of lab studied evidence that's something we know: Bob had cornstarch-of-mysterious-origins on his trousers.

Nuff said.

It would be corn I think, back then, as now. Hard to be 100% certain though.

Now time for some Corn Flakes.

Don't get any on your pants, then fall into a barbed fence uphill.

Too late Kev. I'm a real mess now. I'm more worried about removing this sea mine I fell on.

Could the maize starch have been used in some sort of weapon? I'm finding things about a maize flamethrower or applied in explosives. Not supporting Googling this


Also found on Wikipedia that this stuff is used to create non newtonian fluids. This rings a bell to anyone?

Maybe it was used in the 'seamines' and when the gas was released some residue was released as well?

I am pretty sure 'straw' has something to do with the various grain and cereal products as well Kev.

Maybe Bob just spilled his Weetabix on his kecks.

Corn starch is used as a donning agent for surgical gloves. It's not as common now, but would have been back when this all went down. Aliens probably wouldn't need em, but pickle smoochers who perform illegal medical experiments might.

There are various spiritual and occult leaning people I know, who theorize that the "purpose" of UFOs is to keep us off balance, divided, confused, and for certain people like us to be so obsessed with "solving the mystery",

That we don't "notice what is really going on and is important"

Or various other theories about the magicians trick being played on us.

I don't disagree with this concept...it seems likely...

But for those of us who like solving things rationally...that's a disheartening theory.

I'd like to catch those corn starch abusing mofos in the act...of setting up their stage props...


Thats MY reason for researching UFOs".

Bruh, that's some good thinking right thur. I'd like to know if the corn starch was present in a localized or dispersed pattern, and what the trace amount load was. It would go a looong way toward narrowing it down between experimental weapon vs human experimentation.

Either way, human agents confirmed, unless it all loops back to crop circles. (jk)

Would a police forensic lab use euphemisms?

Without putting too fine a point on it, I have known police to be sensitive with what they reveal to family members in particularly horrific incidents.

Is that the case here? Almost certainly not but something feels wrong about it, as well.

Thanks for that addition my friend. What a nice little story to focus away from all the politics flying around at the moment.



And here is the plaque.

Still a fascinating story to this day.
