Zombie Outbreak in Texas!!!

Hail Survivors!

I recently received a very grave -no pun intended- warning from Survivor Miles who I believe may be located in or near Texas. Survivor Miles recently survived a vicious zombie attack, armed with only his wits and hedge clippers. His parents unfortunately were not so lucky.

Remember Captain Mantell, First UFO Chaser

(SOS/WTF/ASAP) An important survival reminder this week from the example of flying ace and UFO chaser Captain Thomas F. Mantell. UFOs may look pretty cool but they are dangerous and should not be chased.

Captain Mantell UFO Chaser

Captain Mantell should know. He died chasing a UFO. Those who remember the captain kept his memory alive this week reminding others of his cautionary tale on TV.

The story goes like this. Thomas Mantell is a member of the Kentucky Air National Guard on January 7, 1948. A WWII flying ace. He is flying over Kentucky with three other Guard planes one afternoon when reports of an unidentified flying object come over the radio. A mysterious, metallic flying craft described as  extremely large, round and white in color with a red light toward it’s bottom.

(Remember, this incident happened mere months after the famous Roswell incidents when two UFOs allegedly crashed or were shot down, depending on whose version of events you believe.)

Captain Mantell spots the strange craft and initiates pursuit. The UFO responds by climbing up up, higher and higher into the air. And then it seems to slow down as if to let the captain catch up.

The captain continues to chase the UFO for 45 full minutes. “The object is directly ahead of and above me now, moving at about half my speed … I’m still climbing… trying to close in for a better look.”

These are Captain Mantell’s historic last words, uttered over the radio of his F-51 at 30,000 feet. Moments later he crashes to his death, still strapped into his seat.

Captain Mantell shot down by an alien

What causes the crash? The debate rages on. Lack of oxygen, some say. He passed out.

Others maintain that an alien pilot toyed with the captain, leading him on a high altitude chase before shooting him down, perhaps avenging his lost colleague shot down in the desert by humans.

However he died, the lesson is clear to everyone still working hard to keep the memory of Captain Montell alive. The UFO Survivors Society of Kentucky is asking survivors to honor the captain’s memory by not chasing any UFOs this week.

No matter how many M & Ms you have in your pocket. No matter how curious you are or how shiny awesome their technology appears, think of Captain Thomas Montell and just don’t do it.

    • Hail Pauzzis,

      Gratz on your math exam! Don’t get discouraged. It’s said to be the last ability to manifest but it’s the language of the universe so you will need it when you do catch that signal on the roof. Which I am confident will happen soon.

      Thanks for checking in and keeping on!
