Alien Underling 1: "Dear overlord! We should use our superior technology to beam images into their minds, letting them know we are here, and we are their friends, and that we wish to share our wisdom with them!"
Alien Underling 2: *COUGH COUGH*.. this is some goood stuff man.. I say we travel a billion light years and make funny shapes in their corn fields.. *PUUUUFFF*
Alien Overlord: "We have a winner! Gather our fastest ships and go draw stuff in their corn fields.. *PUUUUUF*...
That's what I think of when I think of the nuts who believe in crop circles.
I did have to get on this one, cause it's so close to the truth it's hilarious.
The famous or infamous (whichever rocks your boat) Dr. Eltjo H. Haselhoff, is actually dutch and not russian. In my opinion he has partaken a little too much of the medicinal herbs.......
As to Billy Meier, well a few facts about th man.......his wife Kalliope stated in an interview, that the UFO in the photos looked like models that Meier had made himself with items like trash can lids, carpet tacks and other household objects, and that the stories he told of his adventures with the aliens had been entirely fictitious.
She has also claimed that one of the pictures taken of an "extraterrestrial female" was actually an acquaintance covered in tanning foil.
Also, photos claimed to be Asket and Nera was actually two The Golddiggers dancer-Michelle Della Fave and Susan Lund.
So yes rather discredited here.
