Yup, done. I posted a separate thread here to explain myself...much better then I did at PAR, largely because I couldnt care less what they
"think" (if thats such a word there).
They can dance a false Victory all they wish. MH knows full well what transpired here, he lost the debate, and I duplicated the photos...knew he lost
and rather then stay and face it, he went on to get himself banned.
Nothing different would have occurred had I done all the Cake shots...it would have been the same round robin. Who needs it. Not I.
Better yet, who cares.
They always asked me what my fascination with the case was, I might as well say at this point.
It is: Why do people believe it.
The case is moderately interesting on it's own, to a point. In my area of interest in it, the visuals, it's garbage. "Walking" trees, craft made
of found objects, out of focus small shots, tethered saucers, craft continually attracted to trees in a field otherwise devoid of them. But, thats
what hooked alot of people on it initially.
People's perceptions intrigue me, as to how anyone could look at said photos and film and actually believe it. Or to believe anything else put forth
from that point. I hate seeing people wonderment being taken advantage of.
But, who the hell am I to tell them. Theyre minds are made up, and until such time as they find it for themselves they will only know what theyre
told, and proliferate it to others.
Maybe it adds up to needing to belong, or to feel like your the last holdout and have some secret knowledge others dont. Because as you and I realize,
a boatload of the people who study the UFO enigma, truly serious-minded critical thinking people, dont buy a word of the case anymore. Havent in
Thats not without reason.
I liken dealing with PAR to a box of snakes, you put the deeds to one, and another bites from behind. Then the first one ignores your first issue and
approaches another way. Thats not by accident. Not that I say they train people to do such, but it's a engrained behavior.
As I said there, they figure if they can get you pissed enough, you'll go. I hung in a long time, but when they start talking amongst themselves that
theyre going to get someone they trust to "monitor" me, and report back...thats too creepy for words. Much like the good Professor badgering me for
a photo, and where I lived.
If they wanted documentation, I'd have gladly had someone film me shooting and filming. Plenty of cams here.
But again, it's a calculated move, and one thats meant to throw you.
In the end, they havent "won" anything. Other then a "who can piss Jeff off til he leaves us alone" contest. Their fearless leader came here,
challenged, got his challenge answered, and wussed out by not subjecting my pictures and the original Swiss pictures for the same 3rd party analysis.
He was beaten, knew it, and took the easy way out. Get banned.
But, of course, he'll never comment to that.
If he wants to know what finally tilted me? The comment about my "mental state". Here is man who knows so little about me personally, yet can make
such a statement...at all.
This showed me what kind of person I'm dealing with. A man who accepts a clearly tethered object on a string and thinks it's aliens from another
star who can predict the future...this is a man who is concerned about *my* mental state.
As I said, there's little point to all the round robin. I'm content enough in what I did to try and present the other view.
I refuse to even go back and read that board to see the replies. LOL..ordinarily I'd be in there every hour. So, I know at this point I dont care.
I'm sure the general jist is that I couldnt duplicate the shot, so I chickened out.
Whats not understood is I already did, at least in the stills. These wouldnt have been any different, more round and round. I dont "fear" redoing
the film, or I wouldnt have offered, still do-able.
I had fun building the model tho...maybe as I said one day I'll pull it out, but dont count on it.
