A over-commercialized incident involving UFO's allegedly occured here in 1947.
Now a Mecca of t-shirt and sticker shops every July. There is even a UFO themed McDonalds (tm) here.
Look at those lights ahead..nope, it's the new McDonalds (tm)
On July 2nd 1947, a UFO propelled at supersonic speed by electrogravity
was struck down by lightning over a ranch near Roswell, New Mexico. The wreckage was scattered for 2 miles or so, hence why a lot of witnesses did not see the aliens.
The military employee who told the media was forced to take it back the next day and say it was a weather balloon. However the wreckage was not consistent with a weather balloon. In recent times, many of the witnesses have testified that what crashed at Roswell was not of this Earth.
There is also claims that technology discovered on the crashed UFO has been integrated into human society. Transistors, integrated circuit chips, lasers, accelerated particle beams, and kevlar were supposedly all present on the UFO, before humans took them to the lab and 're-invented' them. A lot of even more advanced technology has yet to see the light of day.
The Roswell incident also helped to fuel the conspiracy known as the Cold War
Isn't it about time the US government told the truth about Roswell?
The most amazing love story to ever exist on television. Roswell quickly had a cult-like following of fans who saved their show from being cut by sending thousands of bottles of Tabasco Sauce to the show's creators. This show was a mix of science fiction, romance, and teen angst. The couples included Max Evans(Jason Behr) & Liz Parker (Shiri Appleby), Michael Guerin (Brendan Fehr) & Maria Deluca (Majandra Delfino), Isabel Evans (Katherine Heigl) & Alex Whitman (Colin Hanks), Max Evans & Tess Harding (Emilie De Ravin), Isabel Evans-Ramirez & Jesse Ramirez (Adam Rodriguez). The show ends with the six of them (Max, Liz, Maria, Michael, Isabel, and Kyle) driving off in a van on the run from the FBI.
"OMG, Max died on Roswell last night."
1. An incident in New Mexico in 1947 that was supposedly wreckage from a crashed flying saucer
. Later explained by the government to be a weather balloon, the Roswell incident has become a holy grail of sorts for conspiracy theories
. In the 70s, "evidence" surfaced that there were bodies recovered, even though witnesses to the original incident made no mention of bodies.
2. A really bad WB show about alien teenagers, and their efforts to fit in with the typical, immature high school community.
1. Roswell...believe, man...
2. Like, I watched Roswell today! Isn't that alien guy a hottie?
To probe a human without providing any enjoyment or pleasure to them.
1: He said the sex would be great but I just felt like I was being roswelled
2: Man, I don't care what she wants. I just want to Roswell her.
3: Last time I got Roswelled it lasted 3 hours. Talk about boring.
