Japan has just elected a new prime minister, Yukio Hatoyama, who has been given the nickname "The Alien". That may seem strange at first, until you learn that his wife claims to have been abducted by aliens who took her on a trip to Venus. That nickname seems oddly appropriate now, doesn't it?
Miyuki Hatoyama claims that 20 years ago, in the middle of the night, her soul left her body and took a little excursion with some aliens in a triangular spaceship to Venus. While we here at DPtC do not rule out the possibility of extraterrestrials, as well as the possibility that said extraterrestrials may possess the technology to visit our planet, we highly doubt that astral projection would be the travel method of choice for their human passengers. What would they accomplish by this, recording her reaction? And isn't Venus just a big, desert-y rock??
Also, we here at DPtC are not politicians, but we can't help but wonder if it might be a better idea to keep this sort of thing to yourself!
