The Truth is out there . . . unfortunately

Rats! I so wanted this one to remain a mystery!

A few years ago, I saw a special on "rods:" mysterious, rod-shaped flying objects. My interest was piqued, of course. I'm sure you've thought you saw something move, out of the corner of your eye, and when you looked, there was nothing there. Could it be . . . rods?

No. It could not. The myth has been debunked!
The Skeptic's Dictionary: rods
I love their comment on "sparrow chasing a rod:" looks like "sparrow chasing a bug."

Here's the site of the man who "discovered" rods. He still maintains they are real.
Roswell Rods

So what about those things you see out of the corner of your eye? Dust motes? Paramecium on your eyeball? Rods with a good "there was no one on the grassy knoll"-type publicist? "These are NOT the rods you seek."
