I WISH it was real, but the big problem is that if there was a huge government conspiracy then that site would have been down ages ago --

the disclaimer says it's a fictitious story.


THE END.

It's like Orson Wells's war of the worlds.




Man, and people e-mail that person saying that they believe what is bieng written. That's sad.

Eh, what are you talking about? I say everything is on CNN Fox and all that? And yes I already saw the disclaimer, afterall I did post the link ( rolleyes ), but if you would pay the least bit of attention you'd notice a few things that would show that the disclaimer isn't made by him. And you seem to be thinking that I'm saying this is true, which I havent. I just posted this to see what you guys think will happen. neutral

The reason I said that was because the last thing I saw you post was about the "invisible man" thing. You said that you saw it on the news.

I didn't say you thought it was true I was just posting the disclaimer for antone else that might read the thread.

He didn't write the disclaimer redface? who did?

The disclaimer is actually very curiously worded. It doesn't definitively say whether it is fictional or factual.

So we could still be on course for something rather interesting in a couple of days...

Very confused, got a head ache after reading red/blue on a black background eek !

Will have to check it out on the 8th of march, to be honest who is up for a bet?

My bet is as follow's:-

I say the film was some, holiday snap's of some naked fat bird and the guy threw the camera away - because he didn't want his mate's to see what he had done.

It will only change the blokes life at the end of the day, who took the snap's lol

Spike cool

This site has been posted as a piece of writing with purposeful clues and discrepancies to indicate its fictitious nature
that seems to indicate that it's a whole whopping load of bunk to me. . .
doesn't even sound like he 'curiously worded' it.

aha but u gotta remember they are supposed to be *negatives* ie when they are developed onto paper the colours will b reversed, making the 'breast' become blue, and the yellow eyes purple. well spotted tho. i had a closer look and it almost looks as tho theres an arm and a hand under eyes almost as if its some kind of creature 'clinging' to something, and the breast looks like it has an elbow near it...

He posted what he says are the pics, but the release of them was about 3 hours late. crazy

It's gotta be a publicity stunt for an up-coming... whatever the hell it is.

It's all just way too over-played to be legit.

Just seen it, and I think I guessed what it is all about!

I may be wrong here, but I think it is some dumb ass gimmick for the
new THUNDERBIRDS movie being made by Johnny Frakes from
Startrek TNG.

As I said, I may be wrong, but after following the link to the other site,
the name Jerry Anderson pops up!

ok, so Gerry with a G Anderson was the guy who made the puppet
TV THUNDERBIRDS in the 60's, but I think what we are seeing is some
shots of Tracey Island from the new flick.

regards.

Hehe, I love the way they try to excuse their lame mistakes as 'clues to its fictitious nature' razz

Plus he made the mistake of using the exact same photo without distortion on the mountain sub page. There is no way 'the faction' could have got an identicle undamaged pic if the film was damaged. It may have been more convincing if he used a slightly different pic of the same thing.

Yeah, I too made the Thunderbirds connection (even before I saw that it was Jerry Anderson!). The thing in the pic doesn't even look like a ship, it looks a bit like thunderbird 2.

I think its a great campaign idea. Look at us...we wanted to know more.

Very nice writing, which is also where he gets himself...the writing on the mountainsub page is nearly identical in the way he tells the story. Not to mention the setup of the page and how it is coded (view source and compare)

wink

Oh, and that blue thing they call the ship looks really, really bad. Likes like clay.

It's obvious which of the 2 sites can be believed. I've never seen a ship that looked like the one at 8march2003.com, but I've seen plenty of ships that look like the one at the site I posted. Yes www.3-8-2003.am5.com makes a whole lot more sense.
