Kirsan Ilyumzhinov and his dreams...

There is a wonderful video of Kirsan Ilyumzhinov and Al Jazeera, the news network, in Kalmykia wherein the head of FIDE talks about his kidnapping by interstellar aliens. Yup, it happened near his apartment in Moscow. Uh huh. How the aliens pulled it off was not discussed. The reporter should have pressed him on this point. According to Ilyumzhinov, the aliens flew him to another star and brought back to Earth so he wouldn't miss an appointment. I have heard of this story before, but I haven't seen the video. All this happens in the early part of the interview. However, the entire 12-min video is worth watching as it shows how the man has transformed his country for the better(?).

I've read about him saying this stuff before and found it funny, but to watch him saying it seriously is somehow a lot more chilling.

I got the same reaction. I mean, Kirsan was serious. It's like at any moment he would reveal that it was just a joke, but it seems the guy is dead serious. Someone should ask for more details about this abduction.
