I was just enjoying the first episode of Japanese super hero show, Kamen Rider Amazon, when I was surprised to see the following portrayal of "angel hair," obviously inspired by real-world reports of the supposedly UFO-related phenomenon:




It's always interesting when the entertainment industry borrows concepts that originated in the UFO research community, and I figure this is one example most of you probably aren't familiar with.

I ran this by Japanese sci-fi expert August Ragone, and he wrote, "This has nothing to do with UFOs; this is taken out of context from the premiere episode of KAMEN RIDER AMAZON; it's a spider's web — the monster-of-the-week is a giant, mutant manspider."

Oh well.

Still, the way the stuff disappeared when they tried to sample it, that seemed quite reminiscent of what actually happens when you try to collect angel hair.

well, I guess so... but you didn't actually expect them to admit that they did. they love to cover up anything with the most half- witted, dense and absurd answers... its even sad but nice try asking though.

Well my dad's actually seen this angel hair stuff near his home. He lives in a fairly rural area in Northern California. Whatever the substance is, it has resisted his efforts to obtain and preserve a sample.

Mr. Ragone was not trying to cover anything up. There's probably nobody in this world who knows more about Japanese science fiction shows than August Ragone, and his statement was demonstrably factual. I watched the rest of the episode, and it does, in fact, feature a spider creature.

Why is it that a giant spider using it's web to trap prey is 'half-witted, dense and absurd' while Angel Hair falling from heavenly UFO's is completely plausible?

ok, ok, I watched the video and went through the post again. I apologize... that was jumping into what I didn't understand.
