    Wasn't he assassinated ?

    I dunno..... but I ain't chalking that up as 'winning'.

    He was but he left his mark on the world. I’d consider that a win 🤷‍♀️

    Random Thought:

    Could I survive in in a desert by drinking my own urine?

    Answer:

    NO! Urine contains ammonia and is high in sodium that is toxic to the body in high amounts. If you drank your own urine you would be concentrating this in your bloodstream and poison yourself. It's impossible. You would die!

    Have a pleasant day

    Limited Data Leaves Most UAP Unexplained...

    Limited data and inconsistency in reporting are key challenges to evaluating UAP.
    No standardized reporting mechanism existed until the Navy established one in March 2019.
    The Air Force subsequently adopted that mechanism in November 2020, but it remains limited to USG reporting.
    The UAPTF regularly heard anecdotally during its research about other observations that occurred but which were never captured in formal or informal reporting by those observers.
    After carefully considering this information, the UAPTF focused on reports that involved UAP largely witnessed firsthand by military aviators and that were collected from systems we considered to be reliable.
    These reports describe incidents that occurred between 2004 and 2021, with the majority coming in the last two years as the new reporting mechanism became better known to the military aviation community.
    We were able to identify one reported UAP with high confidence.
    In that case, we identified the object as a large, deflating balloon.
    The others remain unexplained.
    • 144 reports originated from USG sources.
    Of these, 80 reports involved observation with multiple sensors.
    Most reports described UAP as objects that interrupted pre-planned training or other military activity.

    But Some Potential Patterns Do Emerge

    Although there was wide variability in the reports and the dataset is currently too limited to allow for detailed trend or pattern analysis, there was some clustering of UAP observations regarding shape, size, and, particularly, propulsion.
    UAP sightings also tended to cluster around U.S. training and testing grounds, but we assess that this may result from a collection bias as a result of focused attention, greater numbers of latest-generation sensors operating in those areas, unit expectations, and guidance to report anomalies.
    And a Handful of UAP Appear to Demonstrate Advanced Technology

    In 18 incidents, described in 21 reports, observers reported unusual UAP movement patterns or flight characteristics.
    Some UAP appeared to remain stationary in winds aloft, move against the wind, maneuver abruptly, or move at considerable speed, without discernable means of propulsion.
    In a small number of cases, military aircraft systems processed radio frequency (RF) energy associated with UAP sightings.

    The majority of UAP data is from U.S. Navy reporting, but efforts are underway to standardize incident reporting across U.S. military services and other government agencies to ensure all relevant data is captured with respect to particular incidents and any U.S. activities that might be relevant.
    The UAPTF is currently working to acquire additional reporting, including from the U.S. Air Force (USAF), and has begun receiving data from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).
    • Although USAF data collection has been limited historically the USAF began a six- month pilot program in November 2020 to collect in the most likely areas to encounter UAP and is evaluating how to normalize future collection, reporting, and analysis across the entire Air Force.
    • The FAA captures data related to UAP during the normal course of managing air traffic operations.

    Expand Collection
    The UAPTF is looking for novel ways to increase collection of UAP cluster areas when U.S. forces are not present as a way to baseline “standard” UAP activity and mitigate the collection bias in the dataset.
    One proposal is to use advanced algorithms to search historical data captured and stored by radars.
    The UAPTF also plans to update its current interagency UAP collection strategy in order bring to bear relevant collection platforms and methods from the DoD and the IC.
    Increase Investment in Research and Development
    The UAPTF has indicated that additional funding for research and development could further the future study of the topics laid out in this report.

    If we were friends and you can’t remember ever talking to me,
    that’s probably why we’re not friends anymore.

    I had a crush on Major Nelson but Jeanie would have kicked my *kitten* in...

    Should I say it?

    Am I that person?

    I am!

    BLINK OF AN EYE!!!!
