If you're a researcher, you need to hone your skills and possibly join a group. Groups are good except for Nazis; they are just shit. So how do you find a group? The newspaper, flyers, internet, or that creepy guy with a "research van?" Start where you found information on your sighting. Pick a team or team members that augment your skills. If you are great with tracking, find someone who is good with witnesses, CSI, or making food. If you're a true believer, find a scientific member or even a skeptic. "They are not all douchebags."
Also, work with others who you trust. Trust is important because when you disagree, it's a conversation "sometimes loud with swearing," but still, trust lets you agree to disagree, not dumping their body in the woods because he said something mean about ghosts, aliens, or bigfoot. When you decide to research, don't research alone.
Do not research alone. Think about it when you saw it the first time you were alone. It was hard to tell others and you did not get pictures, video or evidence. Plus, on an occasion, it's worth having a tent buddy. Brown chicken brown cow - "no beastiality." Many people get targeted when they're alone; not by "alien probing." If you fall in the forest and no one is around, fucked are you! So bring a friend and stay safe.
Aliens. What dicks! They use highly advanced, interplanetary/ dimensional technology to travel to our planet. And for what? To steal people. To mess up crops? We’re eating that corn and there are starving people in this country! They conduct random acts of violence and sabotage. Come on- where’s the good stuff? Where is the advanced medicine and transportation technology to get us off this rock? We got people here that hate each other, and some of us need to get the hell out of town.
So the next time you visit - STOP "probing" cows, talking to governments, or abducting some poor guy who will eventually acquire a drug problem. Aliens! Stop being dicks and start solving problems! Trust me, the cows are tired of it...
It's the beginning of the day, end of the night, or that dirty weekend, and you saw something - and this something was from a ship or it was brown and furry, or it was in the lake. You tell some friends, the neighbors, and possibly your Mom. After they ask if you've been drinking, they laugh for a while, and/or check you in to a "special hospital". After all of this ridicule; or out of curiosity, you decide to investigate the matter.
We will start from the first day, take the bull shit and deal. Yes they are gonna laugh at you. Then think, "Yep! Use your brain". Sit and think. Find what made you think to get this far, and then do that...whether it is rock music in a room with paint fumes, a quiet library, whatever inspires your thought. Use the internet and see if anyone has seen anything that you did in the same area. See if there is a group that has researched what you saw. Get a little advice, learn, and be schooled; but dont assume they are the authorty on what you saw.
When you talk to these groups be honest. If you were not raped or probed, dont make it up. You are not impressing researchers, your just waiting to get a "Biscardi". Now you learned and grew. Now what do you do? You take the colleagues you met, with the stuff you learned, and research your area. Do the work, cause if they do the work, they control the results. Keep your eyes and mind open. I say open like a scientist not like a girl from Iowa on a bus to Vegas, that really never works out. Collect information that is relevant to your sighting. Then comb threw it and show colleagues; take their info and advice. Don't however do one of theses two things:
1. DO NOT GET mad and pout when you discover that the tracks and scat you collected was from the dog of a local.
2. DO NOT be the person who doesn't share his information with others, at least until you have some seasoning behind you.
I hope this helps new researchers and that they understand that the first time is rough. Yes, you probably will be taken advantage of just like the girl from Iowa. Read my Facebook notes for more...
