Tin foil fans reached a mouth-foaming crescendo after a well-known UFOlogist died under mysterious circumstances during an investigation into "black magic" practiced by "elites." He was appearing as a speaker at a convention in Poland when they found his body, sitting on a couch in his hotel room, supposedly with "black liquid" coming from his mouth. Just days before, he had told his mother that he was in trouble, and she should investigate if anything happened to him. Shades of X-Files ...

A chunk of metal was discovered in Romania in the 1970s that turned out to be 90% aluminum. Romanian officials claimed it was 25,000 years old. The story only just broke for the rest of the world, and now some internet folk are saying it's proof we were visited by aliens.

Did I freak you out too much today? I'm sorry, dear reader. Consider getting an emotional support duck to help you get through this time of apprehension.
