Mysterious Sleeping Beauty illness hits Soviet village – residents collapse where they stand and sleep for days on end

What is causing Kalachi villagers to fall asleep for up to six days straight? Scientists are unclear what is causing the mysterious Sleeping Beauty sleep syndrome that has affected dozens of villagers in the Kalachi village and nearby Soviet town of Krasnogorsk. Beginning in the spring of 2013, Villagers began seeking medical help for fatigue, weakness, drowsiness, loss of coordination, partial memory loss, and occasionally even hallucinations. By January 2014, patients were dozing off, collapsing where they stood, and remaining asleep for several days straight. One woman, Lyubov Belkova, was selling clothes at her local market stall when she suddenly keeled over. Two months later, a woman who worked with Lubov at the market fell asleep in the same manner. Soon, all women at the small market

OJ Simpson innocent? Was Nicole Brown Simpson murdered by Jason Simpson, OJ’s son?

Could Jason Simpson be guilty of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman? The book titled “O.J. is innocent and I can prove it” by private investigator William C. Dear, suggests that O.J. may indeed be innocent for the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman (see full OJ Simpson murders story here). In the book, Dear suggests that the real murderer is O.J. Simpson’s son, Jason Simpson, who was 24-years-old at the time. Dear proposes that O.J. did visit the crime scene shortly after the two victims were murdered but rather than committing the crimes himself, merely initiated a series of actions to help cover up the crime and protect his son.  It's an interesting theory - but does it bear merit in the case against

It’s not a UFO – wind gust blows bounce house (with three kids inside) more than 50 feet into the air

Three upstate New York children were inside a bounce house Monday afternoon when a gust of wind launched the house high into the air. Horrified witnesses say the bounce house rose 50-feet into the air but photographs of the incident suggest the playhouse rose at least 100-foot into the sky and possibly higher. The three youngsters were seriously injured when they were dumped from the house while it was rising into the air. The bounce house lifted off at 3:20 PM on 5/12/2014 outside 22 Ferry Blvd. in South Glens Falls, New York. Two boys, age 5 and 6, suffered serious injuries after falling nearly two stories from the house.  The 5-year-old boy suffered from facial injuries and two broken arms as he was dumped to the asphalt

Author provides compelling evidence that Zodiac Killer is his father – has Zodiac’s identity finally been revealed?

Identity of Zodiac Killer revealed in 2014 book It has been kept secret for over a year but today, HarperCollins has released a potentially explosive new book in which its author, Gary L. Stewart, alleges that the infamous serial killer The Zodiac Killer (view complete article on the Zodiac Killer here) – is his father. According to the book’s author, during a twelve-year search for his paternal father, he made the chilling discovery that his father was one of the most notorious, and still at large, serial killers in American history. Although the San Francisco Police (the Zodiac killings took place around San Francisco and most of the killer's cryptic letters were sent from within the city) have yet to review the book, The Most Dangerous Animal

White orb-like UFO caught on CCTV camera whizzing down darkened road in Russia

The video below was captured by Russian CCTV cameras outside a small commercial shop and shows the moment a white-orb UFO whizzes down a darkened road near the industrial complex. The unusual flying orb was filmed in Prokopyevsky, Russia in 2013. Subsequent to its appearance on YouTube, others came forward posting their own tales of similar sightings of white orb-like UFOs similar to the well-known (and often studied) Hessdalen Lights. “They are probes sent out from ET mother-ships, and are here simply to catalogue the state of the biosphere-earth and even to monitor human emotions, as well as behavior.” “Two years ago, my friends and I saw a orb like this, it moved left and right real quick, was egg shaped, and had colors like plasma all over it.

Eight-legged “Octogoat” – goat born in Croatia has eight spider-like legs

A goat in Croatia has given birth to kid (baby goat) with eight legs. Rancher Zoran Paparic says after the mother goat (Sarka) gave birth to the freakish goat, he couldn’t believe his eyes. “I counted his legs and I thought I was seeing things. Then I called my neighbor to make sure that I am not crazy.” Octogoat also has both male and female reproductive organs. Two healthy goats were born with the eight-legged wonder. Local veterinarians told Paparic that the reason for the goat’s extra legs is an underdeveloped twin sibling and that it is likely it will not survive. Veterinarians say if Octogoat can survive for longer than a week, it may live a full life. Check out more pictures of Octogoat below.    

Watch video of sinkhole forming and nearly swallowing cars on Russian highway

A driver in the town of Tyumen, Siberia narrowly avoided being swallowed up by a giant sinkhole in the highway on Thursday.  In the video below, drivers notice the depression in the road and move to the right lane in order to avoid it.  But one driver does not notice the forming sinkhole soon enough and has to wait for a driver to stop and let him move to the right lane.  As he does, the traffic stalls and the driver is left parked right next to the growing depression in the road.  As more cars pile up around the depression, the road surface gives away revealing a huge, gaping sinkhole. Russian media reported that nobody was hurt.  The sinkhole measured about 20 feet wide and about

Lumpkin County dashcam Bigfoot video – researchers say coverup (2009)

The video below was shot May 2009 in Lumpkin County, Georgia by a Lumpkin County Sheriffs Department patrol car dashcam and features a very quick glimpse of a creature resembling the legendary Bigfoot running across a dark and desolate road in the Frogtown area of Georgia.  In the car were a county deputy and Mary Scott, a civilian who was riding in the car as part of a Citizens Law Enforcement Academy ride-along.  The sheriff claims the video is a hoax but many feel the video evidence may have been brushed off or worse, covered up.  According to Mrs. Scott: “We were going about 55 mph on a curvy road. It was really late-after midnight, I think. We hadn’t passed any other cars, and this thing came

Why have more than a dozen human feet washed up on the shores of the Pacific Northwest?

Note: See updates at bottom or article. As of 2014, police say they do not think a serial killer is responsible for the mystery feet but can’t totally rule out the possibility after the 15th human foot washed up on the shores of the Seattle waterfront this week. Since 2007, an average of two human feet per year have washed up on a 125-mile of shorefront along the Pacific Northwest. The human foot found on Tuesday, May 6, 2014 was wearing a size 10-1/2 white New Balance tennis shoe and was found on the shore at Centennial Park, just north of downtown Seattle. The first mystery human foot was found on August 7, 2007 on a beach at Jedediah Island by a young girl who found the foot

It rained fish in Sri Lanka (again)

Villagers scooped up buckets full of the valuable commodity after it rained fish in west Sri Lanka on May 6, 2014. Villagers in the district of Chilaw said they heard something heaving falling on the roofs of their homes and businesses and were surprised when they rain outside to find fish falling from the sky. The villagers collected over 100 lbs. of the edible fish - many of which were still alive and squirming. A similar incident occurred in Sri Lanka in 2012. BBC weather experts explained how fish can rain from the sky: “The most likely cause of this unusual event probably relates to the formation of a tornado. Tornadoes tend to form in areas where large differences in both temperature, humidity and wind speed and

Odd orb-like UFO captured in Google Maps satellite image over Zhumadian, China

Taken on April 11, 2013, this satellite photo, available on Google Maps, shows an odd white orb UFO flying over coordinates 32°24’8.53″N 114°33’22.93″E - over Zhumadian, China (Henan province). All of the aircraft in the photo are heading north and two are easily identifiable as military aircraft. The third craft however, a white orb-like object in the upper left-hand side of the frame, is difficult to explain. It appears as if the military aircraft are escorting the unidentified object.  There is a major Chinese military base (in the Jinan military region) located north of where the object was photographed (and of course, Beijing is located even further north).

Nearly 300 school girls abducted from Nigerian school – offered for sale in market

Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan admitted that Nigerian security forces do not know where more than 200 abducted school girls are being held – or if they are still alive. In a nightmarish scenario, the young girls were taken three weeks ago (April 14, 2014) from a secondary school in the Chibok town of Borno state. 276 girls were abducted. Fifty-three escaped but 223 are still missing, presumed to be in the hands of their captors. If this is the first time you’ve heard of this story, well, welcome to American journalism… According to witness accounts, armed members of Boko Haram overwhelmed security guards at a school last month, pulled the girls out of their beds and forced them into waiting trucks. The convoy of trucks then

Vampirism is real – scientists prove vampire therapy (blood infusion) reduces aging and improves physical health

Uh oh, this can’t be good. Separate research results, published in Science and Nature Medicine on Sunday, revealed the same conclusion – transfusing the blood of a young mouse into an old mouse can improve their cognitive and physical capabilities significantly. In other words, scientists reversed aging in the muscles and brains of old mice simply by running the blood of young mice through their veins. This is going to be a bonanza for vampires. Researchers at Harvard University found that mice infused with a protein (GDF11) found in the blood of a youngster could run longer on a treadmill and had more branching blood vessels in their brains that untreated mice. In a separate study led by the University of California, researchers found a new

TV footage captures high-speed UFO zooming above crowd at Argentina soccer game

Game footage video captured what appears to be three different shots of a high-speed UFO flying above a soccer (football) game in the el Nuevo Gasometro stadium in the Buenos Aires, Argentina neighborhood of Boedo. The game took place on April 1, 2014.  A television camera reportedly captured the object on film at three different times during the later minutes of the game. Unexplained Mysteries reported: “There are no flashing lights or other indicators that the object is a conventional aircraft and it seems to move too quickly to be a blimp or balloon. The object also appears to change direction slightly just before disappearing out of view.” The crowd, who are distracted by the game’s final goal, appear to not notice the object speeding overhead. In the video
