  1. the military is not tracking saucers flying in our atmosphere. this is. this is project blue beam. fake Russian collusion. fake impeachment. fake election. fake potus.fake tarrifs.fake UN. fake cdc. fake vaccine. fake fda. fake pandemic. fake lockdown. fake southern border. fake Kamal-Toe laugh.

  2. I miss some fundamental equations to see how the propulsion would work. Other than that interesting, just a pity that there are little possibilities to be creative in this world.

  3. There is so much wrong here. First of all UFO means "Unidentified Flying Object". This man did not patent unidentified flying objects. The fact that they are unidentified means they can't be patented.

    Secondly, "flying saucer" is a misnomer. The term "flying saucer" had nothing to do with the shape of UFOs despite what people believe. The first big name known sighting was by Kenneth Arnold who saw objects that were "bouncing around like a saucer skipping across water". The media shortened this to "flying saucers" from "flying LIKE saucers". What he saw looked nothing like saucers, but rather were flying triangle/wing shaped craft.
    Interesting how from this the public started calling things they didn't understand "flying saucers" when most didn't look like saucers at all. Most looked like "toy spinning tops" (or maybe 2 bowls).

    So, now whenever people talk about these spinning top shaped objects, they call them "flying saucers". When people talk about what they WANT to be "alien" ships, they call them "UFOs".

    Last year thousands of people in New Jersey brought a highway to a crawl, taking video, photos, and screaming "UFO" meaning "alien space craft". It was indeed technically a UFO as people didn't know what they were seeing. In fact it was a Goodyear Blimp.

    There has never been any evidence, none, that unidentified objects are "alien" in origin. I'm not saying they aren't but there is no proof. Most are just misidentified, others could be military planes, blimps, weather anomalies, time travellers, other dimensional…. Nobody knows, and anybody who says they do are lying.

  4. How is this a UFO? It's clearly a flying ship. This means it's and IFO (identified flying objeft)

    I personally think aliens could be real but they won't wanna visit if we can't even use our own words right.

  5. Are the blueprints ..if built mechanically functional? Would it fly ..or be too heavy and sorta glide like a hovercraft …. Perhaps with modern materials the discopter could finally fly as perhaps an electric or gas ultralight plane kinda thing

  6. Hahahaha they've been around for centuries, how is the title of this video even possible? Please someone educate me???

  7. I swear I seen a documentary on Netflix with tge same plot but different people

  8. It seems similar to the idea I came up with years ago. It's funny how you think of something, and someone has already thought of it before. I think it would work with the materials available today. If only Randy had spent some of his money on getting one built, we could have had an interesting form of transport. It's nothing like real UFOs though, they are capable of mind-blowing performance in and out of the Earth's atmosphere. I observed 2 of them maneuvering at more than 30 km/s when they entered the atmosphere from space. They were still 60 – 90 km in altitude, but the G forces at that speed would turn any pilot into a pizza instantly.


  10. How do you patent something that’s unidentified? That’s what the U is. UFO does NOT mean flying saucers.

  11. this is why I don't patent anything or write anything down. when I'm dead well thats it.


  13. What if UFO are us from the future? Or multiverse

  14. Albert Einstein and Leonardo di Caprio invented this originally in 1852 during the American civil war.

  15. The hypnotic mosque proportionately spell because smell postsurgically hammer atop a quarrelsome hail. courageous, automatic throne

  16. Why not use the blue prints and other information to build a discopter?
