MACK #77: UFOs

Greetings people of earth! Today we bring you an episode all about UFOs!

If you weren’t aware, the Pentagon recently released three videos accompanied by the following statement:

The Department of Defense has authorized the release of three unclassified Navy videos, one taken in November 2004 and the other two in January 2015, which have been circulating in the public domain after unauthorized releases in 2007 and 2017. The U.S. Navy previously acknowledged that these videos circulating in the public domain were indeed Navy videos. After a thorough review, the department has determined that the authorized release of these unclassified videos does not reveal any sensitive capabilities or systems, and does not impinge on any subsequent investigations of military air space incursions by unidentified aerial phenomena. DOD is releasing the videos in order to clear up any misconceptions by the public on whether or not the footage that has been circulating was real, or whether or not there is more to the videos. The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as “unidentified.” The released videos can be found at the Naval Air Systems Command FOIA Reading Room:

Personally I think this is huge news. The DoD, in my opinion, could have easily dismissed these videos a few years ago and claimed they showed drones or even that they were all part of some sort of military training exercise. But nope. Here we are.

The aerial phenomena observed in the videos remain characterized as “unidentified.”

So, aliens? I think so. Dave, much to my absolute chagrin does not.

This episode may be the best example of how completely opposite Dave and I are about some things. Also, I come off like a total shrew in this show because I’m freaked the fuck out about aliens.

Would I love for our out-of-this-world visitors to be benevolent and eager to help our society thrive through technology and other galactic advancements. Of course. Do I think that’s the case? Fuck no. If they’re here already and haven’t conquered us it’s because they want something we can provide. What is it? Who knows.


Prepare for the worst and hope for the best. That’s pretty much me in a nutshell.

Dave is not that guy at all. When it comes to this particular subject he’s all in with “Wait and see.”

The more he “waits and sees” me, the more perturbed I get.

So, take a drink whenever you think we’re definitely heading for divorce court.

Don’t worry, the truth is we are probably never going to head to divorce court.

Anywhooooo, this episode is a bit late because we had actually recorded a whole other show and while I was editing it Dave was listening and I guess he got a case of the “douchechills” listening back to it. Something I read to him off of wikipedia got him thinking and the enthusiasm he had for the subject waned pretty quickly. We drop some clues toward the end of the show, so maybe you’ll be able to figure it out. I’m sure we’ll discuss it one day.

Alrighty, good people! Enjoy me trying to convince Dave that we need to take up arms and get ready for a War of The Worlds style existence.
