So over cattle mutilation
Cultural analysts believe UFO culture, which enjoyed a wave of popularity in the 1950s and a 1990s revival, is coasting on old glories.
Network engineer Tom Logan said: I am massively credulous and own a bong, so I was perfectly happy believing that Area 51 was real right up until that Ant and Dec film came out.
But its past time for something a bit fresher, whether its garish 80s VHS of a spacecraft buzzing an outdoor rave or security camera footage of a 1995 alien abduction.
It doesnt have to be the least bit convincing. And personally I would be very interested in something that combined aliens with 9/11, just to put that out there.
Paranormal things enthusiast Denys Finch Hatton said: Its not just UFOs.
There is a real shortage of new material in cryptozoology, psychic studies and all the other completely made-up fields.
The public no longer gives a toss about Bigfoot, the Bermuda Triangle or spoon bending, but inexplicably there have been hardly any painfully faked contrivances since crop circles.
If anyones got half an imagination and five minutes free for a shaky YouTube video, we promise well believe it for at least twenty years.
Its that or reality.
