I would like nothing more than the proof of various cryptids, alien civilizations, even alien visitors to be found. But that proof will come only through rigorous science and objective analysis, and by holding evidence to the highest standards of scrutiny. Born in south eastern Pennsylvania, i have found myself at one time or another living in Chicago, Cleveland, Raleigh-Durham, on the island of Kaua'i and finally landed on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State. I have turned my hand to various professions from early work in 3d graphics to historic building restoration, carpentry and log home building to working in a bronze art foundry on the WWII Veterans Memorial. Currently I am a writer, script writer and working for a non profit organization called Empowerment Through Connection which is involved in equine assisted therapy for veterans, at risk teens and women.

According to information in an article by Derek Thompson at The Atlantic Monthly, alien visitors have been exploiting us for decades. Making use of human weaknesses to carry out their insidious deeds right under our noses, in a manner guaranteed to not only sow doubt upon those who report their presence, but to cause serious question about their very existence.

The Hard Data on UFO Sightings: It’s Mostly Drunk People in the West

At least, that’s one interpretation.
Derek Thompson Jun 28 2014

The National UFO Reporting Center has received about 90,000 reported sightings of UFOs in the last 40 years, according to the Economist. That’s about six per day—with the majority happening on Fridays, in the West, and during, um, drinking hours.

What better way for alien visitors to carry out those tasks where they might be unavoidably seen than to do so when everyone is drunk, and no one will believe the witnesses?
Now it is important to remember this information comes from NUFORC, and not some crackpot organization with an agenda.

Of course, a race capable of traversing the stars only to come here and hide are not stupid. It is too easy to just blame it on alcohol so those tricky guys muddy the waters.

1. The correlation is weaker than it appears. Utah, the state with the lowest beer consumption by far, has a higher share of UFO sitings than North Carolina, the state with the highest beer consumption. Washington, the state where you’re most likely to report a UFO, drinks less alcohol than all but six states. There is more to the story than alcohol, sheeple.

2. We have several omitted variables, including direct line-of-sight to the sky and light contrast. It’s plausible that people don’t see UFOs while they’re working or sleeping because … they’re working in-doors and completely unconscious. What the Economist calls “drinking hours” are also the hours we’re most likely to be outside looking at anything bright contrasting with the dark sky.

All part of the plan, all part of the plan.

    “they’re working in-doors and completely unconscious.”
    heh, sounds like an easy job =D

  • Castor Gamblorr

    no wonder why i keep seeing them UFOs when im hammered

  • dj

    they come they study they leave typical

  • Correlation does not imply causation. All this graph shows is that people see things in the sky mostly after leaving work (where they would be in a building and can not see the sky) and before going to sleep (where they would again be inside a building, can not see the sky, would have their eyes closed and be unconscious).
    The time frame after work and before sleep is the most likely time that someone would be outside and looking skyward.

    I am sure that most driving accidents happen after work, but that does not mean that it is because everyone is intoxicated.

    This graph also assumes that people finish work and immediately are intoxicated, every man, woman and child.

    Anyone using simple common sense knows that it is not beer that causes UFO sightings, it is weather balloons and swamp gas! Damned weather balloons and swamp gas zig zagging in the sky and abducting people.

    Also, as a side note. More people see UFOs on a daily basis than have seen
    WMDs in Iraq! But make no mistake, WMDs exist and UFOs dont!

    Finally, in all seriousness, well done on the article and pointing out the alcohol consumption rates.

  • Yes, but leaving work specifically on a Friday, and also correlated to a time when many are leaving a bar, or actively participating in imbibing alcohol. You cannot just omit information from a correlation in order to make a case.

    And again, we also have to look at the percentage of those accidents which are directly related to drinking for a complete answer.

    It is far from correct to state the chart “assumes that people finish work and immediately are intoxicated.” It quite clearly shows a slow increase in sightings beginning around 4pm, taking into account that people get off work at different times (or are perhaps starting while on the job), then a sharper increase around 6 pm when most people have been off work for about half an hour (assuming a 9-5:30 type schedule), reaching a peak between 9 pm and 10. You seriously misrepresent the chart above.

    “Also, as a side note. More people see UFOs on a daily basis than have seen WMDs in Iraq! But make no mistake, WMDs exist and UFOs dont!”

    Again, a misrepresentation to state that UFOs do not exist. UFOs absolutely exist. Millions of people have seen them. What people believe those UFOs are is a different subject. The correlation to WMDs is comparing a highly localized exposure opportunity to a global one. The correct correlation would be by percentages based upon opportunity for exposure.

  • Agreed that the correlated data shoudnt be thrown out. However, it does assume that everyone is drinking and as you correctly pointed out the alcohol consumption does not directly correlate with the number of sightings.

    I didnt mean to misrepresent the chart, but it does clearly show work time directly followed by drinking time.

    I was joking about the WMD. My point being that if we believe the official government line, WMDs exist and UFOs dont, yet more people see UFOs than have ever seen a WMD in Iraq. I too have seen things in the sky that can not be explained and even if only 1% of sightings are true, its still amazing.

    Henry, I hope you don’t think I was criticizing your article, I intended to commend it for pointing out the alcohol consumption rates. As well as trying to inject a bit of humor.

    However, that being said, I have been drunk as a skunk many times and not once suffered an hallucination. But that doesnt rule out the possibility.

    Learned from a former CIA guy, lemme tell you that there no space aliens. The cover-up began in order to explain away the crash of a stealth aircraft — not so much the plane but it’s pilots — cloned disposable pilots. They were being made at the Alamogordo Primate Research Center, and were not considered human. Yet they were. Outgrowth of NAZI cloning experiments, these little people were manufactured to fly magnetically-powered craft whose powerplants twisted and distorted real pilots. Hence the ruse. Our people are evil.

    This sounds as believable as aliens. Maybe a little less so. But I’ll have the same attitude with this theory as with all the others: Maybe true, maybe not, who am I to say. *shrug*
