Oh, and the news today is that, um, yeah, UFOs are probably real after all. The US military has been flying black, delta-shaped vertical take-off and landing airships the size of football fields since the early 1980s. Sorry for not mentioning that, everyone :-) Apparently, they use electrostatic propulsion, so there's no propellors, no downdraft, and no noise. Oh, and they can reach low earth orbit. Nice. I wouldn't give this a shred of credibility ordinarily, except that I'm reading an Economist (from about 2 weeks ago) at the moment that is all about the defence industry, and officially the US government hasn't upgraded its equipment-carrying planes since the 60s, despite buying new fighters and every other type of equipment all the time. Maybe they upgraded, and just didn't feel the need to tell anyone? I love a good conspiracy theory.
Also, the nutcase from CNN Money is back. I can't believe they let this man regularly write a column like this.
