It’s been raining on and off just about every day in Darwin for more than two weeks.  Who cares you might ask?

Well, it’s the dry season.  You get the occasional shower in the dry season but not rain for weeks on end.  It’s certainly never happened before in the 27 years I’ve lived here anyway.

I thought it must be a manifestation of global warming, but this morning’s NT News has suggested an even more sinister explanation.

Darwin-based UFO expert Alan Ferguson [a “highly-qualified UFO-ologist”]… said UFOs, like Swedish backpackers and Canberra politicians, nearly always came to the Top End during the dry season.

Highly qualified maybe, but too dumb to recognise the obvious causal connection between the seasonal influx of Swedish backpackers and the visits by Canberra pollies and UFOs alike. Frankly, I doubt this guy’s credentials – or maybe it’s an example of dumbing down. No way anyone who missed that could have passed Conspiracy Theory 101 back in the day.

It is actually caused by the pollution from badly designed robots.
