I got my "Anti-Gravity Hacker" T-shirt today. It features the artwork above, eWarrior's rendering of a Venusian "scoutship" originally photographed by legendary flying saucer contactee George Adamski.

Adamski was an interesting character. His claims sound completely ludicrous, but no one has ever been able to conclusively prove that he was a fraud -- and he gave his critics plenty of photographic ammunition, including film footage of a craft like the one above in the act of "morphing."

To my mind, the ultimate book on Adamski is Colin Bennett's "Looking for Orthon," which captures the essence of Adamski's reported space adventures and meetings with interplanetary hippies with incredible finesse.

My circadian rhythms are shot to hell.
