    Fascinating.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    After the alert, a shadowy figure told Torres he must never talk about the incident and he duly kept silent for more than 30 years.

    I like how a guy can make himself a Shadowy Figure. I have never been able to pull that off.

    My favorite line is

    He returned to base and was debriefed the next day by an unnamed man who "looked like a well-dressed IBM salesman."

    A "Fifty Year" secret. I don't think I'll live to see the "Hundred Year" ones from WWII.

    We asked it if it was open to a spot of tea first, but it didn't respond.

    I am going to go out on a limb and say that at the time we didn't know if it was some sort of secret Russian weapon, which is most certainly could have been.

    You must not have been alive during the Cold War.

    Don't know what it is? Might be Soviet, carrying a nuke? Hell yes, shoot it down!

    Through the Eighties, it was widely published that one of people's greatest fears was dying in a nuclear attack. Fortunately, we no longer live under that shadow.
