Alien Abduction Claims, Can They Be Proven

Okay I’m sure that there will be those of you that will vehemently disagree with me here, personally I believe that it is ignorant for humans to believe that we are the only life forms out there in the vast universe, it’s also most arrogant.  Are they flying around abducting humans and performing tests on them? Well, flip the script here, whenever humans encounter a species that we do not understand or that we have never seen before, what’s the first thing the powers that be do? They kill, dissect and study never pausing to think that they disassemble a living organism. Why would aliens behave any differently, I’m sure that it’s all part of a greater plan on their part though as beings of higher intelligence would not study humanity just for some sick thrill.

I have researched many abduction claims and in my personal opinion, many of them are not exactly legitimate, I think that there are some people out there who feel left out and wonder why they have not been “chosen” by aliens to be abducted, perhaps it’s their way of garnering attention and making themselves feel better. If aliens do exist, I believe that there are benign ones and there are malicious, vicious ones that don’t give a damn about any life forms. While much of the population does believe in aliens, many ask why they do not make themselves known to everyone since our government wont. Well think about the reaction that some people would have and bear in mind that once there is panic of any sort, it usually spreads. Imagine the government telling us that yes, aliens do exist, they are and have been here and that we have no way of stopping them or controlling their behavior, then what? For the world to know for a fact that they are here and we are nothing but a science project to them, we cannot stop them, we are at their mercy! Wow, I can see the panic now. But what if they spoon fed us that information, there are far too many people that have witnessed UFOs and far too many that claim to have been abducted to ignore what’s happening.

Now try to look at things from an “alien” perspective, this beautiful planet is filled with these humanoids that kill without reason, start wars over nothing, wipe out entire species of animals just because they can, are greedy, misguided and most certainly on the path to self destruction. Why prove outright to all of them that you are there, the fact is, they don’t have to prove anything because there’s probably no logic in doing so. They know that they are the superior species, that they have the upper hand and there’s nothing that we can do about it. By the same token, I have read a lot about abductee claims that we should be vegetarians and not eat meat, is that because meat isn’t as healthy for us as we have been led to believe or could it be that they have respect for the lives taken when society slaughters animals to fill their gullets?

I welcome communication from legitimate alien abductees for research of sorts, only sincere, legit, honest to goodness abductees need contact me, it will be most interesting to come up with information as a result of this research. Understand that I do not claim communication with any alien life forms, in fact I have never seen a true UFO up close and personal, that being said, I am not close minded and set on the idea that there is and can be no such thing. If a person claims that they are abducted and they know that to be true then they should not have a problem stepping forward now and contacting me, I anxiously await your communication. Please msg me with an e-mail address and I will get ahold of you asap, thank you.

Big Brother, Big Crock

Perhaps Big Brother believed that a season of new twists and temptations was just the ticket to old and new viewers tuning in, maybe it would have been the case if the network/show producers had the slightest integrity.  As this season has shown, CBS will do and allow anything for ratings, only they may have gone too far this time and may very well lose the majority of their loyal viewers, and surely no new viewers would want to tune in to see that train wreck!

The first (and certainly most detrimental) mistake that CBS/Big Brother execs. made was in fixing things so that conveniently the loser Paul was brought back into the game. He had his shot at playing Big Brother already and it makes the new players look as if they were duped straight out of the gate, not to mention it being an insult to viewers. Then they allow obviously unstable people into the game, all for ratings and attempt to make viewers believe that “it’s how the game is played”, many have used the word “bullying” in describing Josh’s behavior. It’s painfully clear that many of the so called competitions are tailored to certain players abilities (or lack of).

All Big Brother execs and CBS have done is to insult the viewers they do have, rather than make sincere attempts to hang onto them dearly. They need to be reminded that the viewers make or break any show, happy viewers, successful show. They must understand that while it’s a delicate balance, they can have a scrap of integrity and still have drama and satisfied viewers that will tune in each week.

Odd how things “played out” so that Paul was safe for so long (supposedly it was a choice viewers made), yet by allowing the consequence, twist and temptation, Cody and Jessica were guaranteed a ticket out the door pretty much. Funny how 1 (ONE) poll claims that Paul is a viewer favorite, however if you actually read many of the comments viewers post(ed), they want him gone as much as Josh, IF NOT MORE. Of course I just read a poll that stated that 78% of those polled want Josh gone based on his bullying alone! Most realize that he’s Paul’s puppet and that he’s the one sullying up the game.

Get a clue, please the viewers you do have before they’re gone too, by the look of it the network can’t afford that. Stop allowing players into the game that are unstable and abusive, all in the name of media negative attention. Stop beating dead horses and only allow return houseguests if it’s a special like Big Brother returning Losers! The cast this season was very boring, not in the least entertaining, and downright offensive! Sure I know that you want drama and trouble but try a different approach because personalities like Paul’s, Ales’s, Josh’s and Christmas’s while they can do the devious, two faced, sneaky, manipulative, assinine antics, they also drive viewers far and away.

Wet n Wild Photofocus Foundation

Always on the hunt for new, affordable makeup and skincare products I saw the Wet n Wild photofocus foundation and had to give it a try. The line seems to have a decent selection of shades to accommodate various skin colors, though I did notice that many were very orange and very pink, for me the Nude Ivory matched best. Now I’ll tell you that if your skin is very dry you may want to use a heavy duty moisturizer before even trying this foundation, or skip this one all together.

I applied my moisturizer first and then I used my facial primer, following it with the foundation which I found easiest to apply with a foundation brush. This foundation didn’t want to sit right on my skin, it was as if you were trying to rub makeup onto a piece of stucco. You would think that I had severely dry skin or something (which I do not), I don’t use facial powder which is a blessing because you wouldn’t want to apply powder over something that won’t blend well to begin with. When I was finished and I looked at my face I was extremely disappointed, it was a cakey, heavy looking mess, not to mention that my face felt clogged like I just applied a bucket of spackle to it.

I decided to give it one more try on my bare face without any moisturizer or primer, so I washed my face and started over, again when I finished and stepped back to look in the mirror my face was an overdone mess! I did not apply excess foundation either, I applied it very lightly like I always do as you can build coverage later as you go, if needed. On the plus side, the Wet n Wild photofocus foundation is affordable when compared to other foundations. By the same token what does it matter if a foundation is cheap if it doesn’t work for you. This one absolutely gets a thumbs down, it’s not even worth the low price. Keep your money and spend it on a foundation that blends into your skin instead of making you look like you’re wearing clown makeup.


elf Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Stick

I prefer eyeliner that is liquid and that is waterproof because my eyes are so easily irritated and tear easily, then if I don’t have a good eyeliner on I begin to look like a raccoon. I got tired of spending a fortune on various waterproof stick and liquid eyeliners so one day I spotted the elf waterproof sticks for $2.00. I didn’t expect too much being it was only $2.00 and i’d had such lousy luck with all of the others I’d tried, I bought it and I kept an open mind like I always do.

I love how thin the liner went on, you can draw a thin line or a thick line and I got caught in the rain one day with no umbrella so the liner was put to the test to see if it would resist the water, it did. For the price the elf waterproof liquid eyeliner is a no brainer,  it’s cheap and goes on nicely and really withstands water. What I dislike most about the product is that I buy a new stick about once a month and I have purchased at least four now that have been dried out, one of them had a strange flaw in the tip and it interfered with it going on straight. Aside from it being hit and miss as to whether it will be dried out or not, the product is worth the money and I have to say it would be a keeper. Definitely a thumbs up if you get one that is not dried out.


Gold Bond Ultimate firming neck & chest cream Review

Okay ladies now here’s a product worth trying. I have been using this cream regularly taking breaks only when trying other new products with the same claims, I have been using it for about 7 months. The cream goes on without leaving my skin feeling clogged and “coated” and you can feel the tightening immediately, after first using it for about 3 weeks I noticed a significant reduction in the lines on my neck and the crepid look of my skin. It does not have a strong smell of any kind and therefore does not interfere with the smell of any perfume that I wear.

The Gold Bond Ultimate firming neck & chest cream is far less expensive than it’s competitors, which is why I didn’t have high expectations when I first began using the product, I mean come on we all have this idea that if we aren’t using the more expensive creams and serums that the celebrities are able to afford than they can’t work as well, right? Wrong, this cream is worth every penny (I paid around $12.99) and it backs up it’s claims of improving skins texture, firmer, more taught skin, and of improving skin elasticity. This one get’s a thumbs up for sure.


Signature Club A Rapid Transport C infused Cool Tight w/intens. Tens’Up for Neck, Throat & Decollete

I have tried a good number of Signature Club A products, for a good number of years. This product I first saw on HSN probably about a month ago, always in the market for anti aging products I gave it a try. First let me say that makeup is for hiding a womans age, however facial creams, serums and the like are for preventing aging skin and for undoing any aging that already exists (if any such thing exists). I dislike a product that is supposed to help with the wrinkles and lines that has light reflecting particles so as to confuse the consumer as to how well the cream is really working.

The Cool Tight cream was said to make skin feel cool when applied, I noticed no cooling at all but the product did make my skin feel somewhat tight. I have used the product for nearly two months and while my neck and decollete does FEEL ever so slightly tighter, the lines have not improved in the least. The cream feels heavy to me and definitely leaves a thick feel on my skin, almost a clogged feeling or one of being unwashed. I will say though that the smell is the best part of the product, it has the delicious scent of an orange cream Popsicle like the company’s makeup remover smells.

For the money ($37.10 total) which was supposed to be a special price, the product is just not worth it, save your money. Perhaps I’m dreaming but I want a product to make a difference when I buy it, I want it to do what it says, at least and I have to say that this one missed the mark by miles.


Makeup & Beauty Mania

It sneaks up on you like some alien body snatcher scene, face it, women of a certain age begin to show it and there’s not a whole lot the average woman can do about it unless she’s Kim Kardashian, in which case the trade off is in having soo much work done you not only don’t even slightly resemble your biological self, you begin to look as if you’re not even human! So what can women do to slow down the bite of father time? Well, just join the majority of real women out there and begin trying some of the zillion face products geared toward slowing down the look of the aging process and hiding the dead giveaways of ones age. Although no one can try every, single product out there on the market today, many of us have indeed tried hundreds of them. These are honest reviews, I am not compensated in any way, shape or form for raving about any that may be that good or slamming any that are beyond that bad, either way you can judge for yourself but I trust the information will help you so that you don’t waste your hard earned money on products that simply don’t do what they promise.
