Horrifying! Dozens of razor blades found attached to playground equipment in Illinois park. One toddler injured.

Monsters of a different kind emerged in Illinois yesterday.  Police say a two-year-old child was injured with cuts to his hand after a bizarre visit to Millennium Park in East Moline, Illinois.  Authorities report they found at least a dozen razor blades glued to playground equipment in up-turned positions along handrails, swing handles, and monkey bar grips. After the toddler's father discovered his injuries, he took the child home where he was treated for cuts on his hand.  The father then went with police to the park, located at the intersection of Archer Drive and 34th Avenue, where they found and removed about a dozen razor blades from the playground equipment.  The blades were attached to various surfaces on the equipment using a unidentified white, putty-like

High-res video of huge hexagon-shaped UFO flying above military base in Nevada leaves many scratching their heads

With the deluge of sketchy quadcopter and LED-light UFO videos that began suturing the Internet last year, I’ve been quite hesitant to post news of these events (which I consider to be “nonevents”) unless there is sufficient evidence to suggest they are authentic.  Fact is, hoaxes are much more difficult to spot today.  But the video below is intriguing.  Admittedly, the authenticity of the video cannot be 100% verified but I thought I’d go ahead and pass it along and invite reader comments.  But first, a bit of information about the video’s author and the video itself, which depicts a high-resolution shot of a strange hexagonal-like glowing object flying above a military base in Nevada (with the added excitement of an additional UAP passing near

Unseen force propels object off counter in Gilford, New Hampshire ghostly surveillance video

A newly-released video depicting a glass object flying from a store countertop, presumable propelled by some unseen ghostly force, and smashing into pieces on the shop’s floor has sparked a Ghost Hunters investigation in the little town of Gilford, New Hampshire.  The video spread through the Internet after the Ellacoya Country Store (located at 2667 Lake Shore Road in Gilford) posted the video on the Ellacoya Barn & Grille Facebook page with the heading “Haunted Much?”. In the surveillance video footage, which was shot on March 10, 2014, store employee Heidi Boyd leaves the shop’s counter and walks into a backroom.  Shadows and lighting change indicating she is moving about in the backroom.  Moments after she exits the room, a glass cover (a glass top for

The Stephenville Lights – dozens of credible witnesses report seeing glowing orbs in the Texas sky

One of the most widely witnessed and well-documented UFO sightings in U.S. history occurred on January 8, 2008 in the rural farming community of Stephenville, Texas.  Known widely as the Stephenville Lights, the sighting of the brightly-lit mile-wide object was witnessed by dozens of local citizens including a pilot, county constable, and several business owners.  One witness told reporters it was a life-changing experience.  Steve Allen, a freight company owner and pilot who said the object he saw was a mile long and half a mile wide told the press, "It was positively, absolutely nothing from these parts." On January 8, 2008 between 6:00 and 9:30 PM CST, around forty witnesses reported seeing very bright lights in the night sky near the cities of Dublin and

Vietnam crazy train passes mere inches from resident’s front doors

Located in the densely populated area of Old Quarter in capital city of Hanoi in Vietnam, this train passes down a narrow residential neighborhood street – mere inches from the front doors of residents. Residents know the train schedule, which passes by twice each day, and bring in possessions and children before the train passes. Some smaller items (e.g. motorcycles in the picture above) are left leaning tight against the homes providing mere inches of leeway between the motorcycle and passing train. One visitor who viewed the phenomena noted: “At just about 4 pm and 7 pm every day, you suddenly notice people start to file into their homes and in the front yard where kids were playing and women were cutting vegetables is suddenly replaced by rushing

Ebola outbreak in Africa has reached epidemic proportions

The images are horrifying – a virus which spreads through blood, feces, even sweat, and causes profuse bleeding and necrosis (death of body tissue). 90% of those who become infected die – and now an outbreak is ripping through the region of Guinea in Africa infecting nearly 100 people thus far. This is the first time that such a virus has been identified in Guinea. This particular strain of the virus is initially contracted via contact with contaminated rodent feces and is then spread among humans through bodily fluids, such as sweat, saliva and blood.  Authorities say the virus, which has reached epidemic proportions, is spreading rapidly and infecting medical personnel first which is hindering containment of the viral outbreak. The outbreak has been going on

NASA funded research project predicts collapse of our civilization within the next few decades

According to a surprising new study funded by NASA, civilizations on Earth are set to collapse – within only a few decades.  Researchers used advanced mathematical models seeded with compelling historical data related to previous civilizational collapses (e.g. Roman Empire, Gupta Empires) to reach their conclusion and found that even with conservative estimations, civilization as we know it is tittering on the brink of collapse.  According to researchers, the impending collapse is due to several factors including a world bent on exploiting natural resources and increasingly unequal wealth distribution between the rich and poor. The researchers pointed out that “the process of rise-and-collapse is actually a recurrent cycle found throughout history” and that in many cases, the civilizational collapse takes place over a period of several

President Jimmy Carter’s 1969 UFO sighting in Georgia

  President Carter's 1969 UFO sighting Many are unaware that several United States Presidents have reported seeing UFOs including Jimmy Carter, the 39th President of the United States, who reported seeing a UFO while seeking to become Governor of Georgia in 1969. After hearing of the sighting, the International UFO Bureau of Oklahoma City asked Carter to file a report of the incident – which he did. One evening in 1969 (the exact date has been undetermined), Carter was preparing to give a speech at the Lions Club in Leary, Georgia while campaigning for governorship of Georgia. Around 7:15 PM, one of the attendees pointed out a strange bright white light in the western sky. About as “bright as the Moon”, the object first appeared about 30 degrees

800-year-old monk remains found sticking out of cliff face

Mandy Ewington was strolling along a British coastline when she looked up and noticed two odd-looking “tubes” sticking out of the face of a cliff. She quickly recognized the protruding white tubes for what they were, femur bones, and snapped pictures which she sent to leading coastal archaeologist Karl-James Langford. Langford also recognized the grisly remains as two thigh bones which were slowly being revealed as the cliffs eroded away. Langford explained that Monknash, in South Wales, was a burial ground for Cistercian monks in the Middle Ages. Analysis of the bones revealed they belonged to a male in his late 20’s which were estimated to have been interred in the 1200’s. “It's quite an easy picture to put together. There was a religious community close to

Funeral home workers preparing to embalm body of dead man find man is still alive

78-year-old Walter Williams, described by family members as a “fighter”, appeared to have died in his Lexington, Mississippi home on February 26, 2013.  The coroner arrived at the home and finding no pulse, pronounced him dead.  Family members watched as emergency personnel “put him in a body bag and zipped it up”.  Williams was then transported to Porter and Sons Funeral Home where his “body” laid in storage throughout the night.  Thursday morning, funeral home workers began preparing to embalm Williams when suddenly, he started to kick in the body bag struggling to release himself from the enclosure. Nephew Eddie Hester said he received a call from a cousin who said simply, “Not yet”.  Confused, the nephew asked, “What do you mean not yet?” to which

Rapidly-defrosting Siberia yields huge, 30,000 year old virus – and it’s alive!

Researchers in Siberia have uncovered and revived (say what!) a 30,000 year old giant virus sparking concern that increased mining and oil drilling in the rapidly-defrosting area could inadvertently release a similar virus that could one day prove harmful to man.  The mammoth virus belongs to a new family of mega-viruses that thankfully, only infect amoeba.  But researchers say its revival in a laboratory stands as “a proof of principle that we could eventually resurrect active infectious viruses from different periods.” The newly-discovered virus (named Pithovirus or Pithos) measures 1 1/2 micron, huge by virus standards as even viruses considered “large” measure only 1/15 that.  Researchers say the virus is so large, it can be viewed with a normal light microscope. The first giant DNA virus, dubbed
