Furthermore, glass plates and a plastic remote control, as well as metal objects, stick to Bogdan’s chest. Glass and plastic aren’t magnetic, but they are smooth. According to scientists, smooth objects stick to slightly greasy, flabby skin much like Bogdan’s. [Read Our In-Depth Analysis ]
The poltergeist video is very weak indeed though if its purpose was to give the Manning family some publicity, it succeeded. [Read Our In-Depth Analysis ]
In December, NASA footage of a burst of electrically charged material shooting out from the sun had UFO enthusiasts aflutter. They said the “coronal mass ejection,” as such solar activity is called, unveiled a giant, “cloaked” spaceship parked near the planet Mercury. The formerly invisible object glows brightly as the CME material washes over it.
A pig geneticist told Life’s Little Mysteries that the notion of an alien-pig hybrid was ridiculous. One to two percent of pigs are born with developmental defects, and the unfortunate piglet in the video appears to suffer from hydrocephalus, or skull swelling caused by the buildup of fluid inside the cranium. It also has a snout defect. [Read our in-depth analysis]
A UFO crash video titled “Dead Alien Found in UFO Hotspot in Russia” was posted to YouTube earlier this month. It shows two Russian men finding what appears to be a dead extraterrestrial alien near a tree stump in a snowy field in Irkutsk, Siberia.
YouTube is chock full of similar demonstrations of bodily magnetism. But unfortunately for paranormal enthusiasts, they’re all hoaxes. Bogdan, like the others, has to lean back slightly in order for objects to stick to him. If the force at play were magnetic, it would overcome the much weaker force of gravity.
Bogdan, a 7-year-old Serbian boy, made international news in March 2011 through his apparent ability to magnetically attract metal objects. He fooled an MSNBC reporter. He fooled the Daily Mail. But he could not fool us here at Life’s Little Mysteries.
Not so fast. Further analysis of the footage clearly shows the “UFO” flying up from the foreground in front of nearby hills. It seems that whatever it is whether extraterrestrial spacecraft or very terrestrial insect the UFO began its journey into the skies above the El Bosque Air Base from approximately knee height, and probably took off from less than 20 feet in front of the cameraman.

Second, not only do we not know who took the footage, but no one other than the videographers reported having seen the lights, despite there being well over a million people in Jerusalem at any given time, and the Dome of the Rock being one of the most famous religious sites in the world.
The public’s tendency to fall for hoax videos seems to be (inexplicably) rising. Here are some of the best (worst) examples.
