History of DNA-tested baby alien body (Atacama Humanoid) comes forth – creature was discovered in Chile in 2003

As release date nears of Dr. Steven Greer’s UFO documentary Sirius, which will reveal details on a tiny alien body they call the “Atacama Humanoid”, we have now learned the history behind the discovery of the tiny little creature.  As it turns out, the case began in Chile’s northern Atacama Desert region and is not new discovery – it was extensively covered in the Chilean media shortly after its discovery in 2003.  The little humanoid body was found in the La Noria ghost town, which was once a boom town of the nitrate industry that flourished in this region. According to a report published in the newspaper La Estrella de Arica on October 19, 2003: “It all started one winter morning when a local man from

Crooks in Argentina selling huge ferrets on steroids as “dogs”

Fresh news out of Argentina – a man who thought he had found a great deal on groomed toy poodle dogs ($150 each), took the dogs to a veterinarian who broke the news to him. “That’s no dog, it’s a ferret. And a really big one.” As it turns out, the practice is not unusual in Argentina where young ferrets and rodents are started on a chemical cocktail of steroids at birth, then groomed, and sold to tourists as “Brazilian rats”. After the story broke, another woman came forth claiming she had also been tricked into buying what she thought was a Chihuahua but also turned out to be a giant ferret. As one Twitter user pointed out, "If you can’t tell the difference between a dog and

More Eerie pictures of cool abandoned places (some you can still visit)

There’s something about abandoned places that sparks a bit of imagination, and heartache, in all of us.  Below are more eerie, but beautiful, abandoned places, some of which you can still visit. Kolmanskop (Afrikaans for Coleman's hill, German: Kolmannskuppe) is a ghost town in the Namib desert in southern Namibia, a few kilometres inland from the port town of Lüderitz. It was named after a transport driver named Johnny Coleman who, during a sand storm, abandoned his ox wagon on a small incline opposite the settlement.  Once a small but very rich mining village, it is now a popular tourist destination run by the joint firm NamDeb (Namibia-De Beers).   Nara Dreamland (Nara Dorimurando) was a theme park near Nara, Japan which was built in 1961 and inspired

New Mexico witness spots strange shape-shifting UFO near Kirkland Air Force Base

News is beginning to bubble out regarding a February 2013 UFO sighting of a strange shape-shifting craft in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  The object began as a teardrop-shaped object before morphing into a diamond-shaped craft and finally into the all-to-familiar triangle shape with large round lights. On February 14, 2013, the witness was stopped at a traffic light when they spotted a pencil lead, gray colored streak out of the corner of their eye.  According to the witness, they originally it was a plastic bag being swept up by a gust of wind. “The traffic was heavy; the sky was 100 % clear, with no apparent wind.

Michigan dispatch receives more than 30 calls regarding mysterious booms in the area

There were more than 30 calls coming into the Branch County 911 Dispatch Center in Michigan this past weekend regarding mysterious “booms”.  All calls came from the northwest part of the county.  Many residents in the area thought someone was breaking into their home.  Fox News reached out to the closest military base and they told FOX 17 that they don’t know where the booms are coming from and that it isn't them. One area resident reported: “A friend of mine had the same thing happen to him on Friday night in northern Montcalm County. He said something sounded like an explosion and even rattled his windows. He and his neighbors all went outside to look and some even went driving toward the direction it seemed to have come

UK girl has been hiccupping every two seconds for the past three months – doctors are baffled

In January 2013, 13-years-old Emily Marsh, from the United Kingdom, was on her way to math class when she began to hiccup.  At first it was funny but now, three months later, not so much.  Emily hiccups every 2 seconds and has been hiccuping continuously, even while she sleeps, for over three months.  The physical action is so exhausting, she has to take afternoons off from school to rest.  She has undergone a series of tests, including an ultrasound scan, chest X-ray, endoscopy and MRI scan, but doctors have so far been unable to cure her condition.  She has tried sucking on sweets, a spoonful of vinegar, osteopathy, hypnosis, sneezing, gargling, and other old-wives tales but to date, she is still hiccuping. Emily explained to the Telegraph: "I've tried drinking backwards,

Inside the Mexican drug cartels – how to live rich in a poor country

About the Mexican drug cartels Drug cartels, criminal organizations developed primarily for the purpose of promoting and controlling drug trafficking operations, have expanded into other criminal areas including arms dealing, prostitution, racketeering, extortion, assassinations, and human slavery. Whereas they once agreed to cooperate with each other in the production and distribution of drugs (i.e. a true cartel), they now war with each other on a regular basis in a battle that has cost an estimated 700,000 lives.  Their geographical boundaries, which once stopped at the Mexican border, have expanded into Africa, South America, Europe, and of course, into the lands of their nearest neighbor, the United States.  Their profits from their criminal business are enormous.  In the suburban town of Badiraguato, near the center of the

Confirmed – Mexican drug cartels have crossed the border and are setting up operations deep inside U.S. borders

Top law officials have indicated that the notorious Mexican drug cartels, who once rarely ventured onto U.S. soil, have begun moving into United States and are setting up (or have already set up) operations in at least nine none-border states.  This conclusion was reached by  the Associated Press after they reviewed reams of federal court cases and government drug-enforcement data, plus interviews with many top law enforcement officials. The head of Chicago’s DEA office, said “It's probably the most serious threat the United States has faced from organized crime.”  In fact, Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, head of the deadly Sinaloa cartel, is now listed as the city’s Public Enemy No. 1, a distinction previously held by the famous Chicago-based gangster Al Capone.  The DEA is convinced

Freezing weather wipes out entire German flea circus troupe

Say it isn't so! An entire troupe of circus performing fleas has fallen victim to the freezing temperatures holding Germany in its frosty grip. Flea circus director Robert Birk says he was shocked to find all of his 300 fleas dead inside their transport box Wednesday morning. Leaving him unable to fulfill his performance engagements, Birk scrambled to find and train a new batch (i.e. find a new batch of "lively" fleas). Luckily, an insect expert at a nearby university was able to provide 50 new fleas in time for the first show on Sunday.

Sidewall skiing – Saudi Arabian youth drive on two wheels in latest craze

Saudi Arabian youth, who apparently have very little to live for, have introduced some wild and crazy driving stunts to the world before.  Last year YouTube video of Saudi youth “skiing” behind speeding cars went viral.  This year they've upped the ante with “sidewall skiing”.  Sidewall skiers use a ramp to tilt the car up onto two wheels.  Then the driver must rely on maneuvering skills to keep the car from flipping over.  Whilst driving on two wheels, passengers cling to the sides and perform tricks – standing on the car, push-ups  or even changing a tire have all been performed and captured on video.  Check the picture and video gallery below.   Sidewalk Skiing–Saudi Arabia youth gone wild

Doctor Evil’s two-headed shark discovered in Gulf of Mexico

Researchers confirmed last week that the two-headed shark discovered in the Gulf of Mexico on April 7, 2011, was indeed a single shark with two heads and not a conjoined twin. The specimen was found by a fisherman in the uterus of a pregnant female shark near the Florida Keys. It is the first confirmed two-headed bull shark. Some have noted that the shark was found shortly after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that occurred in the nearby area but authorities claim the shark’s deformity is not related to contaminants from the spill.
