 I sure hope they come in peace!

For about half an hour on Saturday night a very strange sight occurred in the skies over the English town of Stratford-Upon-Avon, the birth place of William Shakespeare.

People poured onto the streets from pubs, restaurants and houses. Cars driving through the streets pulled over or slowed to a snail pace, as hundreds looked up into the starless night to witness what some observers said was the most extraordinary thing they had ever seen.

What the? The scene from southern England.

 The Daily Mail reports:

Hotel Chef Kern Griffiths, 26, said: “I saw five lights, we all thought they were hot air balloons at first because the glowing spheres looked like a burst of flames. But I couldn’t see any outline of the balloon itself and they were travelling far too fast.

“Suddenly someone shouted ‘look’ and there were these bright dots fizzing across the sky.

“It was weird, they way they moved did look alien. Some people reckon they’re fireworks but they were lit up in the sky for far too long, the local rugby club say they were lanterns that blew loose over the weekend but these objects were far too fast and too high up.

“They were unlike any aircraft I’ve seen. It’s a mystery.”

The British paper quoted a UK military spokesperson who said the phenomena had nothing to do with government activity and that it was not the Ministry of Defence’s role to investigate the sightings.

  “The MoD does not have any expertise or role in respect of UFOs or flying saucer matters or to the question of the existence of extra terrestrial life forms, about which we remain totally open minded.”

Meanwhile Chinese newspaper The Shainghai Daily reported that a audio tape recording of a civilian pilot witnessing a UFO in 1991 had been released.

The recording has been kept by Wu Jialu, former senior engineer with the Shanghai Aircraft Design and Research Institute. He said equipment needed to analyze the report wasn’t available until now.

The following is a transcript of the conversation.

Airport dispatcher (A): 3603, what did you see?

3603: I took off, flying about seven sea miles (13 kilometers) at the Course 28 degrees. I found an unidentified flying object right at my front. It was three meters to five meters in length. It’s red and it looks like it is spraying fire. It’s flying to the northeast. I turned slightly to the north and the object was farther and farther from my plane. It’s moving fast and suddenly it turned around.

I flew about 20 sea miles (37 kilometers). It is moving southeast. It’s flying lower and lower. I turned a little to the west. It turned around suddenly to the north again. It turned black.

It separated into two, one ball on the upper side and one cube below it. The two objects flew northeast for a while and then they turned to the northwest. They climbed up and disappeared. They came out, and disappeared again.

A: I got it.

The truth is out there people!

Video: War zone in Sydney as man goes on rampage with tank!

A man went on a crazy rampage though suburbs of Australia’s largest city, Sydney, in the early hours of the morning local time, taking out infastructure and sending police on a wild chase.

John Robert Patterson, 45, allegedly led officers on a 90-minute chase through six suburbs in Sydney’s west as he crashed the privately-owned APC through fences, mobile phone towers, telecommunication relay sheds and an electrical substation.

The man from Dharruk, in Sydney’s west, was arrested after the APC stalled on its way to damaging a seventh property, police said.

He was refused bail in court.

Defence lawyer Ivan Bertoia told the court that Patterson claimed “that certainly he had authority to behave in such a manner”.

In refusing bail, the magistrate recommended that Patterson, who had facial lacerations and a swollen left eye, receive medical and psychiatric attention.

The hearing was adjourned to local court on July 16.

Mobile phone services where the chase occurred were disrupted while technicians waited to gain entry to the crime scenes, police said.

Police on patrol had noticed the APC allegedly being used to destroy an electricity substation and followed the carrier through the suburbs of Mt Druitt, Dharruk, Emerton, Glendenning and Plumpton.

The pursuit ended in Dean Park when the vehicle stalled as it was being driven towards another mobile phone tower, police said.

Police arrested Patterson and charged him with numerous offences including malicious damage, break, enter and steal, predatory driving, possession of a prohibited drug, use of a weapon to avoid apprehension and driving in a dangerous manner.

Video: Civilian man hijacks army tank, crushes car.

The British Army sounds like fun.

A 22 (going on 12) year-old man has faced court in the UK after he strolled into a military hanger, jumped into the driver’s seat of warrior tank, pushed the on button and destroyed a small car.

Jack Carroll was staying on base in North Yorks with a friend who is in the British Army when he decided it would be a fun idea to take out a parked car and have the whole thing filmed and put on the internet.

The video shows the warrior tank moving slowly toward a small white car, panning across, as it runs it over, completely crushing it. The tank was not damaged in any way.

Prosecutors told the court that “when the vehicle stops the person holding the camera moves to the front of the vehicle and the recording ends with a picture of the driver in the driver’s seat looking out and quite plainly gleeful at what he has just done.”

Outside court the naughty lad’s mother, Tina, said: “It is lucky he was a good intentioned young lad not a terrorist who got in that vehicle I think the Army must bear responsibility too.”

Carroll was given a one year driving ban, 200 hours community service and a small fine.

Sounds like it may have been worth it.

When not at war, soldiers just love to crush cars for fun.

Just what you pay your taxes for.
