Neanderthals were not less intelligent than modern humans, scientists find

Neanderthals Were Smarter Than We Thought!

https://www.seeker.com/neanderthals-were-smarter-than-we-thought-1899471488.html

 

They're just an ancestor and like the typical arrogance we share, always think people before us were dumb and couldn't do anything outside ET's help.( Latter is a bunch of HS!). One main advantage over us, were far stronger!

If one could bring a Neanderthal child to the present, raise and school it, be just as smart.

Really is there THAT much difference?

Answers to the Roswell alien nonsense.

https://www.history.com/topics/paranormal/roswell

Excerpt..

Did you know? The Project Mogul team invented a number of high-tech materials for its balloons and other equipment, including ultra-lightweight and ultra-strong metals, fiber-optic cables and fireproof fabrics. This is part of the reason why some people who saw the debris thought it came from outer space: It didn’t look or behave like anything they’d ever seen. Many of these materials are still in use today.

 

Info I learned about 10 years ago, one of the newest material NOT used today was a special tape made by Scotch.  The  tape was used in part of the construction to attach the light mylar material, to the wooden balsa sticks to save weight.  The attitude the balloons operated exposed them to strong UV radiation which etched the so called hieroglyphs to the beams, sort of like a natural photographic process.  The tape were sold only for a few years and today mainly forgotten about. (thank you Science channel) Had a heck of a time acquiring even these low res photo ads some time back. Just some of the patterns sold during the time period.

Another issue is the reliability of people's memories which can become embellished without one's awareness.

Some crash test vehicles were saucers (well saucer shape and were ours)

Prototype re-entry vehicles and aeroshells.

There is an exchange in the: "Vampires of Venice" episode of Doctor Who which I find pertinent. It is just after they encounter hostiles:

Rory: This whole thing is mental! They’re vampires, for Gods sake.
The Doctor: No.
Amy: So if they’re not vampires…
The Doctor: It makes you wonder what could be so bad it doesn’t actually mind us thinking it’s a vampire.

It is my impression that the original announcement of an alien spaceship crashing was due to their scrambling to find an explanation which was less dangerous than telling the truth. It served that purpose quite handily as it drew attention away from public scrutiny of classified material and the fact that the program violated several International treaties. It was easy then to ridicule the incident by comingling it with reports of little green men.

This thing sounds like a horror especially while trying to sleep at night.

Back during the 1990's someone thought it was a good idea to have one as a pet next to a housing complex. WV newspaper headline...

A Peacock's Tale: A Good Nights Sleep Gone To The Dogs :wacko:
