Oregon Coast UFO Boxes Hoax Heats Up, Disrupts Lives

Once again the hoaxer’s have used the internet to start a rumor of strangeness that spread from site to site like wildfire. While it  might not be funny to those no nonsense “expert” investigators, I kind of like getting a chuckle out of these things once in a while.
