What are they? Mystery UFOs crash-land in China in 'huge ball of fire'
dailystar.co.uk ^ | 20th May 2014 | Andy Wells

Surrounded by jagged edges, the UFOs are blackened by burn marks and are said to be about two-and-a-half-feet wide, weighing approximately 90 pounds, according to OpenMInds.TV.

The China News Service reports that a Russian Proton-M rocket that was carrying a communications satellite suffered engine failure just after it launched.

Russia apparently insisted it burnt up above Earth but it is now believed these UFOs are in fact remnants of the rocket.

I’m guessing its the Russian Proton-M rocket.

Looks like hoodie spinner still attached to the wheel with the tire burned off.

How come all photos of UFO’s and UFO related items are always out of focus and fuzzy?

Of course, reading to the bottom of the excerpt would help me not provide a “Duh” moment.

I saw a FReepers tagline once that said something to the effect of, "Proudly posting comments without first reading the article since 2001". I thought it was funny and it stuck with me.

Why is it that when you click to watch a video, you MUST sit through a time consuming commercial?

that’s how they pay the YouTube shooters when they get a lot of hits. You can make a lot of money if you have a popular video.

I think it was Lazamataz, but I could be mistaken...

LOL. I don’t post much, but I believe I came up with the tagline on my own. If not, just call me Mr. Vice President.

Eh? There was a whole thread with clear photos here.

Two sad facts though.

The links to all the photos are broken.

They were fake anyway.

Chinese UFOs are poorly assembled with lousy components.

The tagline I recall had the word "Proudly" in it. Unless you've changed yours, it's not the one I recall. Of course, I can't remember what I had for lunch, so, in the long run




What was I saying?

“Great Balls of Fire-Jerry Lee Lewis-original song-1957”
______________________________________________________
I had the record. As I recall, it was one of my favorite songs at age 13. “ You shake my nerves and you rattle my brain Too much love drives a man insane...”
It would have been hilarious if he had substituted balls for nerves.

Then the song would have been Great Nerves of Fire, wouldn’t it?

"Remember the spinning attack weapons from the movie Battleship?"

I suspect they were inspired by the Panjandrum, an experimental breaching weapon from WWII that never got out beyond the (failed) trial stage.
