In all my years of interest in the paranormal and UFO phenomenon, all I've come across are normal, natural occurrences given wild speculation. Marsh lights mistaken as ghosts; Earthquake lights mistaken as UFOs; Bears mistaken as Bigfoot; Floating logs mistaken as sea monsters; Spider webs mistaken as angel hair; Dust mistaken as spirit orbs.

I've come to believe that there are no paranormal, supernatural entities or events, only undiscovered science.

By jove, I think she's got it.

I would love to have seen the look on these peoples' faces when they were told that the substance they had collected was magpie puke.

I'm trying to see things from your point of view, I just can't get my head that far up my butt

I hope they put it on their toast, eating it in order to "commune" with the aliens, before they got the news.

I am never disappointed to be disappointed, I am just glad that an answer, no matter how bizarre can be given to a mystery. Although, it seems a less alien mystery now surrounds why magpies eat and puke up frogs in great numbers during these times of UFO sightings.

I don't know, but I'm a staunch believer in the possibility of the paranormal, supernatural, and ET-UFO's

But I have no proof... it's just my mindset, I guess.

EDIT: For this "goo" thing, I felt it was some type of "natural" event all along.

Yes, magpies, or at least their cousins, the crows, are indeed imbued with an alien intelligence.

If you know Heckle and Jeckle, then you know Mighty Mouse.
