    October 18, 1978 I was abducted by space aliens. I stole a small tech gadget with blue and green lights. They inserted a micro-chip in my brain. Who else has had this experience?

    The government is after me because I am speaking out. They want to keep the public from knowing this. If you need help see me.

    Give up? Alice thought aliens had inserted a microchip in her brain. But those weren't aliens, that's NOT a microchip...and that is definitely NOT your brain.
