'Alien goo' turns out to contain Magpie DNA

A strange sticky translucent substance that was found after a UFO sighting has been tested by scientists.
The discovery of a strange translucent slime at an RSPB nature reserve in Somerset following an alleged UFO sighting in February last year prompted a spate of news reports at the time promoting the possibility that the mysterious goo could be extraterrestrial in origin.

The discovery of the substance mirrors several similar discoveries that have been made over the years of an unidentified slime-like substance, sometimes referred to as "star jelly", on the ground following meteorological events.

Scientists at the Natural History Museum who have since studied the substance however have concluded that, far from coming from outer space, the peculiar slime appears to contain a combination of frog and magpie DNA.

"Now that could mean that it's a frog that's been ingested by a magpie and the indigestible parts have been coughed up in to the sticky gel," said Stuart Hine of the Identification and Advisory Service. "However, we've got to explore a bit further."

Of course, if it is in reality and undiscovered, that is exactly what it is, undiscovered science.. That can be said about any kind of phenomenon that actually exists even if it turns out to be ghosts, aliens, or anything for that matter.

Aliens use the form of magpies, For years i have seen things that seem to overlap our reality, One day i was drawn to a wooded area with an open field, In the field was a large group of magpies, I sat down on the bank for no more than 5mins, then i heard music and talking, I sat up and looked in the field and there was a large group of "people" having a barbie where the magpies where 5 mins before, I got up and walked over and through this crowd of "people" and could hear them saying he seen us he knows who we are, It was a scary experience. Over the years i have been able ... [More]

Not one of them noticed you prior to their shapeshift? You stumbled on their secret and even walked through the group and overheard their comments, yet you walked away alive? You know who they are and that they feed on us, they know you know, and yet you're still alive? Please pardon my skepticism.

goo = magpie poo??? Yeah the Australian magpies are the worst. Although I do have "pet" ones that live behind my house. Well the magpies swoop down and steal food when we have a BBQ in the backyard. They also like to swoop our pet rabbit and cats.

Jesus done the same with the fishes feeding the 5000, he put is hand in the basket and took out the "past fish" , I now live in a strange world, There are many life forms sharing this world, Some take the form of animals some human form, each are different, none are really bad, They just know how to recycle what has past(nothing is wasted). They do not worry about a few knowing, they know we will not ... [More]
