Across the Atlantic Ocean, a few media outlets are reporting that the British government is set to declassify a ton of top-secret documents currently owned and controlled by the Ministry of Defense. Apparently, those papers detail some big information pertaining to UFO sightings and could prove that one of Europe’s most powerful states has known all along that aliens are real.

At least, that’s the narrative accompanying the careless hype surrounding the move to disclose these documents. The reality is far less exciting: some British UFO researchers, with support from a UK politician in the House of Lords, have been pushing the Ministry of Defense to release the 30-year-old documents that investigate UFO sightings in the country.

Black recently brought up the issue at a meeting of Parliament and was told the Ministry of Defense would release the documents to the National Archives by March of this year — though that doesn’t mean they would be immediately handed over to any alien hunters and conspiracy theorists eager to take a look.

The documents purportedly contain information about investigations into a few specific and very famous UFO sightings, such as the Rendlesham Forest incident, where a series of unexplained lights were spotted in Suffolk in late December 1980. Witnesses said they saw a craft land on the ground.

But it’s highly unlikely the UFO researchers will find anything particularly juicy in the papers. While the ministry’s dragging feet on this action has only bolstered suspicions the government has something to hide, that’s probably just due to the fact that the UK government — like most democracies — is a bureaucratic slog. Nick Pope, who used to investigate UFOs for the Ministry of Defense, told the Daily Express that the government is not engaged with any Roswell-style cover-up. “Having worked on the MoD’s UFO project I’m sorry to say that we don’t have any crashed spaceships hidden away in some RAF hangar, as some believe, but we do have some fascinating and unexplained cases in our files,” said Pope.

Moreover, the declassifications never reveal any kind of real evidence of E.T. or of a government conspiracy. The CIA recently released a bunch of documents pertaining to UFO investigations, and from the looks of it, they’re about as baffled as everyone else.

So, are we finally going to learn in a few weeks that aliens and UFOs are real, and that the world’s powers that be have kept the general populace in the dark for more than a half-century?

I mean, maybe. But seriously — no.

Marvel is so good at pumping out passable superhero sequels that it’s easy to forget what a truly good sequel should be. Captain America: Winter Soldier managed to clear that bar, but that was four years and 11 movies ago. Leave it to Creed II to remind us what we should be striving for.

Clay Pigeons are back in the world of Fortnite: Battle Royale, and despite some pretty extreme map changes recently, the location of the clay pigeon skeet shooters haven’t changed.

Fortnite Season 6, Week 8 Challenges were unlocked Thursday morning, ushering in the return of everyone’s second-favorite form of target practice. (The Shooting Galleries were a bit more fun, so we put Clay Pigeons second.) So what’s the best way to “Get a score of 3 on different Clay Pigeon Shooters” for the Week 8 Challenge?

Did you all forget that Ryan Reynolds (and not Danny Devito) is voicing Pikachu in the live-action movie POKÉMON Detective Pikachu? Well, he is, and there is an honest to goodness trailer to prove it. Also, there are like five characters from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the film, if you want to be technical about it.

The horrific Fortnitemares Halloween event in Fortnite continues with a second set of challenges, and this time around, players have to destroy some innocent but totally spooky ghost decorations.

The latest Fortnitemares challenges hit Fortnite: Battle Royale Friday morning. Just like the first batch, two challenges involve destroying specific Cube Monsters or doing so with specific kinds of damage, and a third involves eliminating opponents in the Corrupted Areas. But the fourth — much like dancing in front of Gargoyles — is more spread out across the map.
