There is a great deal of debate over whether a recently uploaded video on Youtube is fake or not.
The video apparently shows a giant hailstone measures an impressive 2m in diameter.
Judging by the shakiness of the film, the witness presumably believes it really could be some form of UFO, a view seemingly supported by the news provider, which received a tip-off about it from the UFO Global Reporting Center.
The as-yet-unidentified block of ice seems to be lying in the middle of a dirt track or pathway in the forest and it has horizontal and vertical lines scratched into it – making it resemble somewhat of an igloo.
There are no signs of ice or snow elsewhere in the video of the forest, which some would probably say gives credence to the idea it really did come from outer space.
Others claim that it could merely be ice which dropped off a commercial airliner, although the size of the object would raise eyebrows about this happening.
Of course some are claiming that it is something … not of this world!
Some people asked me why I did not post the UFO footage taken in London recently. The reason is that I highly suspected it to be fake and I do not like putting up things I feel are fake.
According to sources, this was simply a PR stunt for a special effects company.
Over the past several years, companies have used this kind of free marketing technique. They create a fake video, make it go viral on the net and then come out and say it was them. Free publicity etc.
The footage was filmed near the BBC Radio 1 building in Great Portland Street, and shows specks of white light flying at high altitude over the capital. At one stage a ‘saucer’ appears flying around before vanishing behind the clouds.
The footage is believed to have been shot from inside the offices of a visual effects company called The Mill. This company creates special effects for the film industry.
Shocked? I’m not.
A large number of people are now casting doubt on the revelation of Bin Laden’s death. Some believe that Osama was killed in Afghanistan and others that he died of kidney failure, both years ago.
Even now, doubt has been raised. It may not be true that Osama bin Laden is dead and buried at sea, according to two Pakistani TV stations who feel he is still alive.
One bit of evidence that has been circulating the net is the so-called “death pic”. Now one of the TV stations in Pakistan has shown that this picture is probably a fake. This revelation has now been shown on other TV stations across the region.
They have shown that the lower half of Bin Laden’s face in the death photo is from one of his handout photos. The upper half of his face may be from another picture of dead body.
Even the average American is a bit reserved on the news.
“If Osama whas really been killed and buried at sea, why aren’t clear evidence being produced? Why isn’t the government showing us clear photos or videos of his dead body? Is he really dead? I doubt whether his body has been thrown into the sea,” said one member of public in Times Square.
Another reveler in Time Square quipped that this is just a well-crafted media propaganda to boost Obama’s flagging ratings before elections.
One thing is certain. Many people these days have lost faith in the government and now automatically suspect a lie whenever an announcement is made. What is the truth? Will time tell?
