"Not saying it was aliens.... but it was aliens!"

I'm not sure why this was posted? Something made it relevant today? The human brain is somehow wired to believe the most irrational things, not sure if there was an evolutionary benefit.

I personally love the random wikipedia links on HN. There are some really interesting corners that I never would have even imagined existed!

Belief in the extraordinary can just be pattern matching. Something that is very evolutionarily beneficial.

I don't think anything in particular happened today, it's just intriguing folklore with an interesting, albeit limited, history.
