If your saying the OP. Yeah. But rods are not limited to that. Go read your Irish folklore if you want to hear stories about such things. Talk to a crankster. Theyll surely tell you theres rods out there. Just saying.
So the fairy lights were these rods?

To me, I first time heard it in article I provided.

Stop visiting believers websites...... start working on the paranormal from a skeptical point of view.

Try to debunk it.... After all, most of this stuff IS PURE BUNK.

I thought fairy lights were either marsh/swamp gas, fireflies or piezoelectricity.

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I'd like to see one at a standstill, too.  I'd like to know what kind of bugs they are.

I agree. Always look for the most fantastic explanation.

If I cant figure out how something works, thats all the evidence I need that it doesnt work,... period.

No, aliens seems like the most logical explanation to the Rod photos.

I have to admit, the first time I heard the claim I was intrigued.

Did not take me long to get peeved though ;)

well then they're easily duplicatable via camera shutter and bugs aliens.

Rods were empirically explained as bugs in the 1990s, do try and keep up.

Who is the skeptic: the realist who won't accept belief, or the believer who won't accept reality?

Someone was asking how long until someone took these seriously again. I said five years.
I was wrong.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

Mr Babait, a couple of things.

!. This thread is years old, and it contains plenty of information to explain EXACTLY what your 'rod' is, namely a brightly illuminated insect, probably a moth, passing in front of the lens.  The shape is simply an inverse silhouette of the bug and it's wings flapping, as recorded over about 1/10 to 1/60 of a second.  It's very basic stuff and quite easy to understand.  Here's a few links debunking the stupidity of 'rods'..

https://en.wikipedia...ki/Rod_(optics)

http://www.amsky.com/ufos/rods/

http://www.opendb.com/sol/seq.htm

You'll see the names Jose Escamilla and Santiago Ytturia Garza mentioned in conjunction with this topic.  Trust me, you do NOT want to be associated with those two raving idiots/scammers.

2. On your previous posts, you have posted links to your youtube channel and then disappeared, apparently disinterested in discussion, only in hits.  If that continues, you will get reported..

3. When you attach an image to your post, please reduce it to a reasonable size unless there is a good reason.

4. Using added effects on images showing 'anomalies' will tend to make genuine UM folks ignore the content (and you).  Are you after genuine responses or just channel hits?

5. Not reading or acknowledging the content of a thread you then necro-post on, gives us a very good idea of just how good your 'research' is.  In this case, completely non-existent.

There are answers out there, and they won't be found by people sitting around looking serious and saying 'Isn't life mysterious?' - Tim Minchin ('Storm')

The truth ONLY hurts when it slaps you in the face after you haven't done proper homework and made silly claims... - me

I remember being really disappointed when rods were debunked, however last year I spoke to Escamilla on FB and he told me there's still evidence they exist. He had sent me these videos.

https://www.youtube....h?v=IldNOXnWeh0

https://vimeo.com/117878383

Basically he claims that there's many situations that slow shutter speed can't account for rods, as well as in many cases they move faster than known animals.
