Alien reported on Taiwan newscast

I’m sorry about this one but have at it if you wish. I have no comments, really, other than fakety fake.

Extraterrestrial walks on Taiwan’s Newscast

Taiwan has an 8’ alien and photos on TV to prove it. Residents of Taitung took photos of the alien back in May, near Jiaming Lake. Only this week have the photographs become public.

This last comes from Scott C. Waring, an ex-patriot UFOlogist who owns and operates an ESL School in Taiwan.

Waring posted images of the alien, which is described as having the head of a praying mantis and webbed hands, on his website UFOsightingsdaily.com, along with footage from Taiwanese news.  The PhD experts at TUFOS are agreed that the images are genuine and put the creatures height at 2.5 metres or 8.2 feet.

This is showing up in the usual UFO/conspiracy sites (the above source is NOT a quality journal) but I’d bet it will be making the rounds so best you see it here first. A viral campaign? Who knows. It’s worth nothing as evidence but it goes to show that
not just U.S. news reports contain silly non-news.

Here’s the video of the news report. Obviously in Taiwanese.

    Yikes! That has to be one of the silliest alien evidence videos I’ve ever seen. They are apparently just as desperate for titillating trash news in Taiwan as we are here I’m the states, it seems. I hope the 12 year-old who probably did the graphics gets to go to a great animation school someday so he can improve his skills and contribute to a cool SF film someday, and keep on the “light side of the force,” so to speak. :)

    Avoiding fixating on the “figure” of the “alien” in the hugely blown-up image, one feature that is likely significant is the thin dark line just above, and following the features of, the horizon. That is not a real feature; it is an artefact (optical, of the workings of the CCD used, or (most likely) from data compression). That line breaks it progression along and above the horizon to travel up the left-most “leg” of the “alien figure”, and if it is an artefact rather than a real feature of the horizon as it follows the horizon then it is almost certainly still an artefact as it travels up that “leg”, and by extension the similar features making up the entire left edge of the “figure” are almost certainly also artefacts. Taking that away from the image what remains is a (very small) broken dark blob (and nothing else). It is another example of failing to appreciate the difference between digital cameras/images and chemical film based photographic images.

    It looks like a drawing someone might have done with a magic marker on a napkin while drinking in a bar.

    “Ex-patriot”- an expatriate who has not only left their fatherland, but lost all faith in it as well.

    There is no such language as “Taiwanese”. I don’t speak any Chinese languages but I’ll bet that this was in Mandarin–most Chinese newscasts (from either China) are said to be in that language.
