Rated G. Contains alien abduction, brainwashing, and conspiracy. Unless it doesn’t.
by Paul E. Martens
Conrad McManus claimed he was kidnaped by aliens and replaced by an exact duplicate of himself.
But, Connie, we said, that doesn’t make sense. If you were a duplicate you wouldn’t say a thing like that.
Connie shook his head. “The aliens destroyed my body while they were doing their tests and experiments and what not and they had to make a new one so no one would know about them.”
So they destroyed everything, we asked, except your brain?
“No,” he said. “They destroyed my brain, too.”
