hummmm don't think this is a hollywood prop.

I am proposing some kind of test that we can do here at ATS to determine the vitality of this object.

Besides a chemical composition test what else could we do?

Your aritfact is almost identical to that of one from the set of "Taken". What further tests are needed? What are the odds?

FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS!!!! ARE YOU NUTS!!!!


My top offer stands at $6 in case you wish to unload it. I still think it's pewter (a pig/slag metal), has no Alien origin whatsoever, you knew it was a Taken prop when you got it (nice work Xi), and you thought you could engage the curious-but-not-stupid AST crowd into dwelling on it unnecessarily.

The game is up, son...

BTW - you may want to bid on now a new REAL Alien - skinned alive and available on eBay right NOW - Go Get It, Boy!

Authentic Alien For Sale!

(I heard from a taxidermist that he can make dozens of these from dead squirrels)

BTW - Chris - your potato chip is nothing (made with a magnifying glass) here's an alien Cheeto:



and Wheat Bread (can anyone say, "Grilled Cheese"?):

Lame, lame, lame:
uh, yeah, right...ok

And for the really gross:

aww c'mon... already!

Actually - perhaps what our original poster could really use is one of these:
Alien thinking cap

Of course, once he does so, he may need protection from the Aliens coming to avenge the foolishness, so he may need one of these:

Ward off Aliens with this - it's authentic too!

Seen enough? Actually, they say people will buy anything on eBay. It's true. I went to see the launch of the X-prize spaceship in Mojave last year. It was awesome, but I saw this guy picking up stones from the runway after the ship landed and taking pictures of the stones one at a time with SpaceShipOne taxiing in the background. Curious - I asked what he was doing. "I'm Gonna sell these stones on eBay", he says. I laughed - but he was dead serious. Sure enough, the next day, there they were on eBay. He was having no trouble getting $50.00 a piece for them! Hmmm... Autumn is here: maybe it's time to get the toaster and some leaves out and make a few artifacts myself! Nahhhh...

Anyway - thanks for the thread. It's been fun. Now back to the genuine ATS discussions...

It sort of looks like some sort of rectal probe - theres a test you could try!

It is a prop it's the prop from taken you know it's the prop from taken so why are you pretending that you don't.

What sort of test would you propose for an anonymous board with members spread all over the planet?

How about you read the T&C about not knowingly posting false information.

I am sorry and I don't mean to seem to harsh and if you truly are a dupe I apologise for you getting ripped off...but I find it hard to believe that you don't know what this is.

To me this seems like somebody who is hoping to make members on this board look stupid.

Props like this are made by hand not machined en masse so they will all have subtle differences. So just in case your some kid who got ripped off for five hundred bucks thats why it wouldn't look completely identical to other models of the same prop.

It's also possible that it's a home made version of the prop, but I don't think that matters because I think you know all this already don't you?

You wanna test it send it to MIT but of course this assumes you're sincere which I doubt.

What were you hoping for that all the members would respond with "wow that's amazing yes let's test it proof finally proof" so you could gloat over how easily tricked ufo enthusiasts are?

Heck I haven't even seen the show since it aired and I knew exactly what it was the minute I saw it.

SHenanigans, I call shenanigans.

I'm fairly sure its a busted swivel crank from a 1972 Slovakian lawnmower engine.
But I could be mistaken.

Soooo did a little googlin' nothing special but have some questions for AA. These seem to be posts regarding your site:

www.gatago.com...

www.gatago.com...

The first is a solicitation to your website for a program to "change water at the molecular level" though you give no further information of course.

The second is a solicitation for software that will allow the user to quit smoking forever after just using the software once.

These sound like scams to me. So what was the endgame with this one? Or are you going to reply that you just posted your pics on their domain yet have nothing whatsoever to do with the owners of selfempowermenttechonolgy.com?

Quite a coincidence I would think.

So lets see somebody peddling software programs that can cure smoking and change water is somehow easily duped into buying an "alien artifact".

from a google group:


HI Everyone,
My company has developed a software program that can change water at
the molecular level. We have a free 14 day trial, if your interested
just register at the website and you will be able to download the
software for free.

You have voted Spiderj for the Way Above Top Secret award. You have two more votes this month.


Nice .... I knew this was from "Taken" as soon as I saw it. I liked that series.

Are you crazy? How many people have to tell you its just a stupid prop? I'll give you 10 bucks for it though just because i liked the series.

That's a dead skate




They always seem to pop up on paranormal sites as supposed 'dead aliens'.

If nothing else this thread is certianly amusing. Especially when AA was trying to say it had magical properties (not in those words).

Bravo to all who recoginzed it!

Maybe you could have asked if it was real before you bought it for $500?

Dear God it is the same as the prop from "Taken". Even the engravings are the exact same!

500 bucks? Someone got scammed, and real good.

Scrap metal to me.

Shattered OUT...

I think we should cut the guy a break in this circumstance, he is after all commiting self immolation by admitting to us that he spent five hundred bones on that piece of crap.


Peace

LOL


It's like the people who buy moldy pieces of bread that look like marry. To funny, you actually think that twisted piece of junk is an artifact? Just look at it.. It looks like an amature heated it, beat it with a hammer and etched some crappy signs onto it..

Dr love... you are a good guy!

I agree... AA has already subjugated him/herself to "toolhood" by their admittal of buying this thing for way more than they should have...

I dont think they were trying to defraud the board... they have got to know they would be caught up if that was the case...

So lets give them a break...

and movie promos are cool... I'll give ya $15 for it...$30 if its silver...
do we hear $40?

Hey DL I said at the end of my post that I'd apologize if I was wrong.


Still though I would like to know if AA did indeed know it was a prop when he started the thread.

Just don't like shenanigans is all.


I'm willing to give the poster the benefit of the doubt...for now.

I belive in life out there.. But it would be a waste of time to test this item, becasue its a replica of movie prop as others have pointed out...
Its a great show prop! And if it was worth the money you paided on it so be it..
But comming here and saying its an artifact is even to much for me to "buy"...
Dont waste ur time testing that, I think you have spent enough money on this already! Just put it on the table and be sure to dust it off now and agin, as it looks kewl! And would look great with some crystal balls, and a +5 broadsword of lifegiving! Dont forget the +3 Helm of dectect Magic!!!

Try a magnet? See if it rusts? I

'm in the wrong line of work. According to the E-Bay ad there were 1500 of those things made. At $500 a pop, damn that can add up fast.
