Moon Walking Bad For Mental Health
The worlds leading Psychologists today released a report stating that moon walking may be bad for your mental health. This shocking 600 page document is based on recent interviews given by former Astronot Edgar Mitchell. Mitchell was part of the 1971 Apollo 14 crew that landed on the moon. He along with team member Alan Shepard spent 9 hours and 17 minutes frolicking on the moon lifeless surface.
Dr Winston Petard vice chairman of the University of Atlantis department of Psychiatry said, "Moon walking for extended periods of time damages the human minds psychic ability to digest truth from fantasy. In Dr Mitchell's case, this has lead to grandiose statements about aliens and secret Moon bases."
Fitness groups have been critical of the report. Noted exercise guru and actress Jane Fonda claims the report is bogus. Fonda, who starred in the 1968 Sci-Fi movie Barbarella, said that, "Moon walking, especially at my age, is about all I can do. People may think I have been to the Moon but that's just another fiction."
At a peer review seminar at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Psychologist Dr. Simon Astorfloyd commented on the report, "This is some far out stuff man, I mean, whoa, aliens and like, little green men, this guy was an astronot and everything. I'm gonna quit moon walking and spend more time watching the X-Files."
Mitchell's former employer NASA refused to comment on the report. They directed any questions to their outpost "Pink Floyd" based on the dark side of the moon.
Occasionally, one could argue, UFOs ought to come into areas where there were persons engaged in photographic work, who were trained to react a bit faster, and who would secure some photos. One such instance evidently occurred at Edwards AFB on the morning of 5/3/57. I have managed to locate and interview three persons who saw the resultant photos. The two who observed the UFO and obtained a number of photos of it were James D. Bittick and John R. Gettys, Jr, both of whom I have interviewed. They were at the time Askania cameramen on the test range, and spotted the domed-disc UFO just as they reached Askania #4 site at Edwards, a bit before 8:00 a.m. that day. They immediately got into communication with the range director, Frank E. Baker, whom I have also interviewed, and they asked if anyone else was manning an Askania that could be used to get triangulation shots. Since no other camera operators were on duty at other sites, Baker told them to fire manually, and they got a number of shots before the object moved off into the distance. Bittick estimated that the object lay about a mile away when they got the first shot, though when first seen he put it at no more than 500 yards off. He and Gettys both said it had a golden color, looked somewhat like an inverted plate with a dome on top, and had square holes or panels around the dome. Gettys thought that the holes were circular not square. It was moving away from them, seemed to glow with its own luminosity, and had a hazy, indistinct halo around its rim, both mentioned. The number of shots taken is uncertain; Gettys thought perhaps 30. The object was lost from sight by the time it moved out to about five miles or so, and they did not .see it again.

- if anybody's story is never checked out, no matter who they are, it only remains a candidate UFO until it's been investigated and corroborated, isn't that true?
It actually remains a candidate UFO for anyone who didn't witness the specific UFO. Investigation and/or corroboration makes the candidate more likely to be a UFO at the most. I agree that at one point things become reasonable to assume,which is just as well, since absolute truths only belong in the irrational realm of religion.
