    Gimbal derotated video, using clouds as the horizon

    That "strange coincidence" is the first observable. Of course, you could posit that it's a flying saucer that just happens to rotate (or rotate a lot more) at the same time the jet banks. I eventually did some of the math to get the horizon angle correction for looking sideways. The problem...

    Problem with 'disappearing images'

    I've disabled this setting, which is something CF recommends you do if some images are not loading. Fingers crossed!

    Problem with 'disappearing images'

    I purged that image from Cloudflare, and it popped right back. Very annoying. Possibly something to do with banned users or bots trying to access an image, and Cloudflare caching the error. That would go away after a couple of hours though. If someone spots another, please let me know.

    Problem with 'disappearing images'

    So it seems to be a Cloudflare-related issue. One image vanished from the Hairdryer thread. I cleared the cache for that one URL in Cloudflare, and it came back.

    The Global Cross-Hair Enigma that looks like Hair Dryer Burns

    Not wanting to get too much into semantics, but motivated forgetting is still forgetting. The exact mix of reasons for forgetting is going to be even more speculative than the ratio of forgetting vs. lying. On a slightly different note, having "not lying" as a default position in assessing...

    The Global Cross-Hair Enigma that looks like Hair Dryer Burns

    They are possible, but I don't know about equally possible. Of course, it's hard to put even a vague number on with any certainty. However, it just seems like such a light mark, and it seems so easy to make such a burn by accident, then forget it after a couple of days, that for me, it's the...

    The Global Cross-Hair Enigma that looks like Hair Dryer Burns

    Day 4. Burn was on Friday, Aug 5, 2022. It's still visible.

    Reddit pilot sees a UFO from N14AQ. [Probably DAL2369]

    Here I've added a vertical polygon parallel to DAL2369's path, on the path. 111 feet long, same length as and A319. The size matches the UFO. So I think this is pretty much case closed.

    Reddit pilot sees a UFO from N14AQ. [Probably DAL2369]

    DAL2369, seems like a good fit to me.

    Reddit pilot sees a UFO from N14AQ. [Probably DAL2369]

    Some ground features. I think that's this quarry, by Clinchfield.

    Reddit pilot sees a UFO from N14AQ. [Probably DAL2369]

    This sort of case is something I'd like to add to Sitrec, just drop in two KML, and get an animation of plane B viewed from plane A

    Reddit pilot sees a UFO from N14AQ. [Probably DAL2369]

    Seems plausible, it would be about 10 miles lateral.

    The Global Cross-Hair Enigma that looks like Hair Dryer Burns

    I went back and looked again, and there are some references to aliens, often joking. These are what I found when searching for "alien" on the translated PDFs. It was suggested that it was was a stretch mark, and another joked that I was probably taken by aliens. I show it to 2, 3 colleagues...

    The core remnant: could it have survived?

    Related: While he's talking about the full height core, I think it would apply even more to the heavily damaged "spire." In his book, Freidman (a structural engineer who worked at the WTC site from 9/12,) made observations about the welds:

    The Global Cross-Hair Enigma that looks like Hair Dryer Burns

    Really I just set out to investigate this slide, and associated commentary: The implication is that A) it's something other than a hairdryer burn, and B) it's related to a UFO sighting 9 months later. The claim is Vallee's. We don't know what the witness here claims about the link. She did...

    The Global Cross-Hair Enigma that looks like Hair Dryer Burns

    You're raising a strawman. The claim generally isn't that aliens made the marks — in fact, I don't remember any of the marked people explicitly making that claim. The most common claim by far is that they don't remember how the marks got there. By extension, they don't remember burning...

    The Global Cross-Hair Enigma that looks like Hair Dryer Burns

    This video shows two things. Firstly that the outer ring (that's part of the shell of the hairdryer) gets hot, but not hot enough to burn (temperature in F here). Secondly, I switch it off a few seconds in, and it remains at dangerous temperatures for well over a minute.
