Mulder: Agent Scully, I think there is something fishy about this new Transformers movie.
Scully: Right. But Mulder, everything seems fishy to you.
Mulder: I mean it this time. You see, it propounds a theory on how the US government covered up the crash of an alien spacecraft, which coincides perfectly with my theory of government conspiracy concerning extraterrestrial intelligence.
Scully: Huh? You think what depicted in that movie is true?.
Mulder: Of course the crashed “thing” in Transformers is not exactly a flying saucer or a spacecraft as I originally suspected. According to the movie, what descended on earth were firstly a life-creating cube and then a villainous alien robot that can transform into a super-cool jet. Sounds true enough to me.
Scully: True enough to nobody but you. I remember you also believing in the spacecraft in ID4, the evolving rock in Evolution, the insects and worms in MIB, and Superman from Krypton. At least, all of the above are more logical than adversarial alien robot organisms waging war or lurking on earth in the form of vehicles.
Mulder: Alright, if you are not even impressed by the dazzling sequence of a sixteen-wheeler truck turning into a massive guardian of justice, at least you would recognize one common feature among all the movies you just mentioned.
Scully: That they are all big-budgeted blockbuster movies for idlers in the summer?
Mulder: (rolls his eyes, and says with deliberate patience as if talking to an idiot) No, they all agree that alien entities have descended on earth and the government somehow kept it a secret. You know it’s true. You must have heard of the Roswell Incident.
Scully: The Roswell Incident, of course. Some sixty years ago a rancher found some metallic debris in Roswell, New Mexico. The nearby military base issued a report saying that they have recovered the wreckage of a flying saucer. Yet the report was almost immediately recanted, the government has since asserted that the debris was from a weather balloon designed to spy on the Soviet nuclear project. I have read the final government report, it looks pretty conclusive to me. What crashed in Roswell was a spy balloon, not UFOs.
Mulder: But there are many testimonies and affidavits describing more than the crash, but other shady businesses like a secret autopsy operated on an emaciated yet surviving alien.
Scully: It has been proved that many so-called witnesses’ statements are merely hoaxes. Even when those testimonies are not outright lies, they are mostly inadmissible hearsays.
Mulder: Whatever you say. You really have to learn to think outside the box. I will go down to Roswell to see the evidences for myself.
Scully: Oh, you know the town is planning on an amusement park with an alien theme? The main feature will be a roller coaster ride that takes you on a simulated alien abduction…
Mulder: Hah! That’s it. That must be the aliens’ new scheme to abduct earthlings. Scully, I am driving down to New Mexico right now, wanna come?
Scully: No, thanks, I pass. I am waiting to see the Harry Potter movie. Compared to your alien stories, magic seems infinitely more possible to me.
