I remember in the 50s and 60s, reading a lot of sensational stories about people being abducted by aliens, sightings of Yeti or the Loch Ness monster, ships or planes being lost in the Bermuda Triangle............
.......it's been a long time since I heard of any such claims, so, was there ever any truth in any of them? Or did people make up these elaborate stories to get their 15 minutes of fame? Is it easier now, with reality TV, to become famous so there is no need for such astounding claims?
asked in Sensation, amazing stories

UFO stuff - including alien abduction - is still quite popular, but it's now evolved its own subculture - mainstream culture lost interest. Tjose kinds of stories now are regarded as nonsense and usually reported in disreputable sources such as the National Enquirer. The days when people were prepared to take them seriously seem to have passed. Fortean Times is still published, I think.

There has always been a feeling that the people involved in such sightings were unhinged in some way. Nowadays it is even more the case but because of the change in communications it is easier for groups of people to organise support groups for witnesses of such events. The sightings still take place and the information is still available if you know where to look.
