Coast to Coast AM - A conversation piece for insomniacs

I am a light sleeper, and sometimes am awakened late at night by a noisy motorcycle or truck passing by. When that happens, I flip on my clock radio to get entertained by the circus on Coast to Coast AM, where George Noory is the ringmaster. There often are more fairy tales than you can shake a stick at. They are easier to accept when you aren’t completely awake. I’m grateful that so far they haven’t done the ultimate combo plate of Elvis and JFK in a UFO.

For example on November 1st George had Dr. Michael Salla, who has a web site called Exopolitics. Michael told us about UFOs watching the International Space Station, and even docking with it. His web pages often link to YouTube videos. He pretends to be slightly skeptical by ending titles with a question mark, like the October 26, 2014 one: Did NASA Try to Hide UFO Watching Space X Dragon Departure From ISS?

I looked at some more, and my favorite is his February 5, 2014 page, Did a UFO dock with International Space Station for alien astronaut meeting? He embedded the video I’ve shown above, titled What is this please NASA? That video is literally fishy - the UFO looks like an out-of-focus fish. Was the design  based on a Christian fish symbol, or was it perhaps inspired by a Vorlon fighter in the TV science-fiction series Babylon 5? Also, why is the UFO parked sideways rather than lined up to really dock?

Coast to Coast often has long, convoluted conspiracy theories. Some of these stories are so poorly told they are harder to believe than this recent Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal comic about alien spaceships powered by ennui.

Back in June 2012 I blogged about Babylon 5 in a post titled Advice about speech writing from a guy who wrote the book on screenwriting. The excellent brief speech shown above from that series is where Delenn indignantly tells some Earth Alliance destroyers If you value your lives, be somewhere else.
