< Upheaval: Signs of the times

Signs of the times

Okay, out of boredom last night, I watched a show on TLC. Usually, I boycott this channel because I have had-it-up-to-here with home/personal makeover shows, and they seem to specialize in those. Anyway, it is Magic Week on TLC so I watched a little bit of David Blaine, then I watched this awesome show on crop circles - Crop circles : In search of a sign.

I am very interested to hear what other people have to say about these things. Some of them are SO intricate and precise, that I really can't imagine that they were made by a man with a rope and board. I am a little intrigued by stuff like that.

The show described how the crops were bent at the base and not broken, and how the wheat shafts had no seeds where the circles had been made. They described the electromagnetic force of the areas where the circles have been found. Also, did you know that 90% of crop circles are found in a 40 km radius of Stonehenge, which, some people believe, is a primative crop circle.

Anyway, maybe you had to see the show to understand. I am just amazed (duped?) by things like this. What do you think?

I too am torn on what to believe re: crop circles. Are aliens really that bored that they have to draw pictures on our earth? And if there are aliens, even our government or any of our world's governments couldn't keep it all hush-hush for this long. SOMEBODY would have proof and would've risked their life to show us non-believers.

Anyway, back to crop circles... it is a very strange phenom and I think at some point a person will document its creation. Unless they are zapped up into the aircraft before sending the stream video to CNN.

I'm thinking, maybe, the crop circles are actually nonexistent. Do you know anyone who has actually seen one? I haven't, so maybe the media is making all this up. I'm half-joking, but actually, I could be right!

yeah, you could be right. i mean, with digital technology today, how do we know the images are REAL?

David Blaine gives me the willies. He's creepy to the utmost, and I'm not completely convinced that he doesn't have some Satan goin on in him. BLECH.

A couple of guys were credited with creating about 250 of the crop circles. The rest, I dunno.

David Blaine dated Drew Barrymore, didn't he? That'd explain alot...for either of them.

There was this time back in college when I had to take my friend to the emergency room (turns out he had broken a finger playing basketball). While I was waiting for the doctors to set his finger and put the cast on, I had a lot of time to kill. Becaue the only reading material in the waiting room was reader's digest or "Highlights,"one too okd for me the other too young, I was forced to watch TV, and the only channel they got was TLC.

Now, I don't know what the channel is like now because I honestly haven't been able to bring myself to watch it since that day.

The shows I saw (seriously): "Danger in the Skies" (a documentary about plane crashes) and "Mother Nature's Revenge" (about natural disasters). Now I ask you, is this appropriate waiting room material? I mean my friend was just there for his finger, but what if he had been in a car accident or a tornado?!

I would have been better off going with the "Highlights."

Okay, you have found me out - i am an alien and I have been making the crop circles, I just get bored so easily, and they are sooo fun to make, and then to watch everyone sit around and ponder about them for hours - I just love it!
