On this day in 1947 aviator Kenneth Arnold reported having seen nine unidentified flying objects while he was out flying above Mount Rainier, Washington. He described the objects as "saucer-like", which introduced the world to the terms "flying saucer" and "flying disc" as these were starting to be used all over the media. Arnold firstly assumed the objects were some kind of new U.S. military aircrafts. But as he figured out at what super speed they were flying, an estimated 1,200 miles per hour, he soon realised no human pilot inside would have been able to survive such pressure, making him believe the objects were not from our world. Following Arnold's sighting the U.S. army airforce and the FBI started a secret investigations on UFO's, later known as Project Blue Book. A few weeks later they concluded that the sightings were not imaginary and that something was in fact flying out there. What Arnold actually saw flying past on this day in 1947 remains a mistery. ▪
The Kenneth Arnold UFO sightings are considered to be the first widely reported UFO sightings in the United States. ▪
Я один из тех, кому важно держать печатное издание книги в руках. Не могу читать электронные версии (ничего против них не имею, просто не мое), хотя понимаю, что они подчас гораздо удобнее. Книги и чай могут задать тон абсолютно любому дню, а также, этот "тандем" способен сгладить любые неровности завершающегося дня. #books#tea#twinpeaks#panicatthedisco#bed#cozy
Il mio nuovo amico Alex. A Twin Peaks come a Monte Mario, tra ciclisti c'è sempre questa comunione di intenti e la voglia di farti scoprire nuovi tracciati. Lui forte in salita, ma nella discesa non c'era storia... (ah, e un pó di competizione). #mountSutro#TwinPeaks#bike#mtb#sanfrancisco
“I learned that just beneath the surface there's another world, and still different worlds as you dig deeper. I knew it as a kid, but I couldn't find the proof. It was just a kind of feeling. There is goodness in blue skies and flowers, but another force--a wild pain and decay--also accompanies everything.”
— David Lynch
Like most everyone I am a huge David Lynch fan, my obsession started with Twin Peaks. That show is super weird so of course I love it. This book seems to be a biography and memoir with lots of pictures!
This is what I’ve been reading all morning...
Is anyone else into David Lynch??
Thank you to @randomhouse for sending me this lovely gift! 💕
I'm very glad to hear him say this.--
Veteran filmmaker David Lynch believes President Donald Trump could be remembered as one of the greatest presidents in American history because of the way he has shaken up the political establishment.
In a wide-ranging interview with The Guardian, Lynch admitted to supporting Bernie Sanders in the 2016 Democratic primary, before supporting Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson in the presidential election. However, he now appears to believe that Trump may have been the right choice. “I am not really a political person, but I really like the freedom to do what you want to do,” Lynch explained. “[Trump] could go down as one of the greatest presidents in history because he has disrupted the thing so much. No one is able to counter this guy in an intelligent way.” “Our so-called leaders can’t take the country forward, can’t get anything done,” the Oscar-nominated director said. “Like children, they are. Trump has shown all this.” - #regrann#davidlynch#twinpeaks#wildatheart#eraserhead#inlandempire#mulhollanddrive#thepinkroom#agentcooper#garmonbozia#laurapalmer
