But, the point I sort of was trying to make is that maybe one day (perhaps it's already happened) some guy or guyette may experience something incredibly significant, important, unbelievable-- maybe even earth-shattering (sounds like an orgasm, doesn't it?) and would not know whether to even mention the extraterrestrial encounter even with solid evidence or proof because of the negative consequences he/she might experience. I see it as a terrible dilemma for a person to be in.

I'd keep it to myself. I would however keep looking for an explanation of what really happened, keep scrutinize evidence, etc..

I can't even tell DW since it will convince her for sure that I am crazy. She already thinks I am not normal.

Sounds like Absinthe, robnplunder.

We all know everything tastes like chicken.

ETs are reported to taste like darker poultry meat, fatter, some say more gamey. I've read they are best cooked by a confit method.

I wouldn't tell a single soul.

Oh, not at all. When someone complained to me about aliens I told them that they should first get a certification of sanity from their physician because, you know, there were so many "nut cases" making those outlandish claims and that would take the wind out of doubter's sails.

I figured a story like that was the best shot I had at getting those people to their doctor in a non-threatening way.

Hey, no one at megacorp questioned me when I would call Monday morning and tell them "I can't come to work today. The voices told me to stay home and clean my guns".

If I had an experience like the OP describes, I'd move from Area 51 to SOCAL.

Redduck ... Redgate. Correlation or coincidence. You be the judge.

OK, I looked up the "confit method".

"Once esteemed as a preservation method, cooking and keeping duck in its rendered fat results in meltingly tender, moist, and extremely flavorful meat which can be used in a variety of simple preparations. Sear the duck legs in a hot skillet or shred the meat and add it to salads, or, perhaps best of all, make duck rillettes. Just remember the duck must be salted a day before you plan to cook it."

This is no way to treat a duck!!! I mean, gosh, I was only sitting on my couch wondering about something.
I don't even want to know what a duck rillette is.
Furthermore, I hate being salted for an entire day. It causes me to break out in a body rash (beak included).

Sorry that's how you prepare ETs too. I'd never do that to a duck, they're too much fun to watch. You can confit just about anything. My favorite is tomato confit.

I still wouldn't tell anyone about ET. Not sure what a buddy said one time but nobody saw him for 72 hours!:what:

So truth be told, if anyone told me they had been contacted by aliens, my first thought would be to wonder if they were having delusions.
This reminds me, a story my father told me that happened to him at work. A woman came in and talked about my father in very glowing terms, and she knew it was all true she said as she spoke to Jesus.
Which is fine as many folks do, but when she said Jesus spoke back to her, and sat on her livingroom table, is when my father pushed the help button.
The Police came and took the woman away for some medical observation.

So if something visits out of the ordinary, I'll think long and hard before sharing that info.

I have not had ET confit, but between French duck confit and Chinese Peking duck (the other redduck), I would not know how to choose as they are both so good. Well, I simply must have them both (but not on the same day).

If you have not had duck confit, be sure to look for it the next time you go to a French restaurant. Good French restaurants in the US would have it on the menu, and you do not have to go to France or to Quebec. Or if you are a recluse and do not want to leave your home, order some from Costco who carries D'Artagnan Duck Confit, but I have not done that myself. Ask Audrey1 as she has done that, or talked about it (my superior memory shines again!).

About ET confit, even if I have had a chance to taste it, I would not brag about it, even anonymously on a Web forum. There are things that a guy must keep to himself, you know?

PS. About rillette, I still have a small jar of goose rillette I brought back from Quebec. You just don't know what you are missing in life!

PPS. Looking at Web photos of duck leg confit makes me hungry, but my appetite cannot be satiated at this moment of writing (1AM)

There are many claims that the aliens, perhaps multiple groups, have been here for a long time.

Individual contact such as presented might be one of the aliens playing games, or acting outside of approved channels.

Well, that makes sense. Perhaps the occasional UFO sightings can be explained as the extraterrestrial equivalent of "Hey, hold my beer and watch this."
