We're sorry to be the bearers of bad news, but you missed out on an important national holiday on Sunday: GoTopless Day, which was held in cities across the country and is exactly what it sounds like. The festival of shirtlessness is sponsored by the Raelian Movement, a cheerful and publicity-hungry group of folks who believe that life on earth was created by aliens.

Should SCOTUS Justices Use The Word 'Alien' In Considering How Arizona's Immigration Law Impacts Citizens?

ET go home.png
There were two notable things that jumped out at us yesterday as the Obama administration challenged Arizona's controversial immigration law SB 1070 before the Supreme Court.

First of all, who the hell in the Obama administration let Solicitor General Donald Verrilli anywhere near the Supreme Court again? Last month Verrilli argued (if you can even call it that) the Affordable Care Act before the high court and got his clock cleaned by a far more polished, ready and able attorney, Paul Clement. When Arizona hired Clement to argue the constitutionality of SB 1070 before the Supremes, the administration would have been wise to find somebody -- anybody, really -- to argue their case other than Verrilli.

But they didn't. And so, what they ended up with were episodes like this, according to Politico::

"I wholeheartedly agree with the White House. Carry on."
The White House has officially responded to a petition signed by 12,078 people calling for the government to "formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race." The Office of Science & Technology Policy's Phil Larson wrote a post on the White House website titled, "Searching for ET, But No Evidence Yet." Larson categorically denies that the US has evidence of extraterrestrial life, but his response raises more questions than it answers. For example, what kind of alien name is "Phil Larson?"

Andrei Finkelstein, Russian Astronomer, Says We'll Encounter Aliens Within Twenty Years

Andrei Finkelstein, director of the Russian Academy of Sciences' Applied Astronomy Institute, is pretty sure we're not alone in the universe. Reuters reports that Finkelstein told attendees at a forum dedicated to the search for extraterrestrials, "Life exists on other planets and we will find it within 20 years." While he can be accused of playing to his audience, Finkelstein has been sending radio signals into space since the sixties in an attempt to make contact with otherworldly beings. He predicts extraterrestrials will live on water-abundant, Earth-like planets and look similar to humans. "They may have different color skin, but even we have that," he said. [Reuters]

UK UFO Files Released

"Doughnut" over Sri Lanka
The British National Archives just released about 8,500 pages of UFO reports that date back to the 1950s. What do these long-classified files tell us? Was Stonehenge planted by extraterrestrials? Is Dr. Who based on real events? Is Kate Middleton a Species-like creature who will spear Prince William with her razor-sharp alien tongue when they kiss after saying, "I do?" Let's take a look!

Jerusalem UFO Videos a Hoax, Obvious Alien Says

There's the bastard!
Multiple videos of a supposed UFO hovering above Jerusalem's Dome of the Rock appeared on YouTube in late January, and plenty of people thought these were the most compelling cases for the existence of extraterrestrial life ever found. Benjamin Radford, "veteran investigator of many UFO photos and videos," argues that "these images [are] highly dubious, and all signs point to a hoax." So it's settled; Benjamin Radford is an alien.

Raining Dead Birds in Arkansas Brought Down by New Year's Racket or Aliens

When thousands of red-winged blackbirds fell from the sky on New Year's Eve in Beebe, Arkansas, it seemed like God was angry at the Natural State, especially considering the additional 100,000 dead fish in a nearby river. "I'm not drunk and I'm not on drugs," said one local when he called the police department. "She said, 'Oh, you're calling about the birds.'" A handful of the fallen creatures were taken in for testing, but officials are now saying that loud noises, probably from fireworks, scared the birds, causing them to slam into trees or houses and that the weather had nothing to do with it. Extraterrestrials are still suspected.

Texas Is Totally Ripping Off New York City's UFOs (Video)

Clearly, these are both images of UFOs.
This news account (complete with the requisite spooky UFO track) about "Mysterious Lights Over East El Paso," attempts to connect weird but probably completely explainable sightings in the El Paso sky to weird but probably completely explainable sightings (or, engagement party balloons) over Chelsea last week in New York.
