Police puzzle over dozens of creepy spiked baseball bats found chained to poles across San Francisco

They mystery began to unfold early Thanksgiving morning when San Francisco police received calls from concerned citizens regarding creepy spiked baseball bats chained to street poles throughout the city. The bats, which have long metal spikes running through them, were found chained to parking meters, street lights, sidewalk benches, and sign posts. By the end of the day, fifteen weaponized bats had been discovered across the city. By Saturday morning, the number had increased to 27. When the sightings of these strange bats were first reported to the police, SFPD was placed on alert and treated the sites as standing as a potential risk to human lives. One resident told ABC reporters: “This is a little stranger than normal, so, we called the cops just in case and

U.S. Air Force destroys $115 million airplane – by accidentally flying it upside down

The incident occurred on April 21, 2015 while the United States Air Force was conducting a test flight over the Gulf of Mexico in a mammoth $115-million-dollar AC-130J Ghostrider gunship. The pilot attempted a maneuver called a “sideslip” which calls for applying opposite rudder while tilting the airplane right or left in order to lower a wing. The movement, which is often employed when planes are landing in a crosswind, is used to quickly reduce altitude. In this instance, the pilot tilted the aircraft too far and the huge plane inverted - and began flying upside down. The plane was flying at 15,000 feet when the mishap occurred causing the plane to lose 5,000 feet of altitude before recovering at a dangerously-low 10,000 feet. According to the Air

What’s up with all the strange metallic orbs raining down on Spain this week?

For the fourth time in just over a week, Spain has been bombarded by strange space debris resembling huge, burnt-silver, metallic orbs. The latest was a 45lb orb found in the village of Calasparra in Murcia, Spain. Prior to that, a long, burnt, metal-like object was found by a farmer in Elda and a metallic beehive-like ball was found in Mula. A spokesman for the police said, “It looks like a piece from an aerospace vehicle, but not a commercial plane. It could be a piece of a satellite of something similar”. The civil guard, clad in hazmat suits, sealed off the areas and secured the mysterious orbs until investigators arrived to examine them before taking them away. Each of the objects appears to be about three-feet

It’s alive! Weird video shows the earth “breathing”

We’ve all been taught that the earth is “alive” and here’s some pretty freaky footage proving just that. This unusual video appeared online a few days ago and appears to show the earth “breathing”. In all likelihood the effect is due to wind, loose waterlogged earth, or possibly water underneath the ground surface (or a combination of both).  Whatever the cause, I'd suggest nobody go and poke it! Check out the video below. Video showing the Earth breathing   The video was rumored to have been shot in a forest in Nova Scotia on October 31, 2015 by Brian Nuttall.

Newly discovered SOS distress telegram from Titanic proves owners knew ship was in distress and sinking

White Star Line, owners of the Titanic ship, have long refuted hearing anything from the sinking Titanic on the day it sank. In fact, Philip Franklin, the head of White Star Line, swore an oath to a US Congressional hearing swearing he had not received any word from the ship after it struck an iceberg that drove it to the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean claiming the lives of 1,523 passengers and crew. Today a distress telegram from the Titanic has been revealed (and is up for auction). The desperate message, sent via communications company Western Union, reads: “To Mr. P.A. Franklin, White Star Steamship Co. 9 Broadway, NYC. CQD, CQD SOS SOS= From MGY (RMS Titanic). We have struck iceberg. Sinking fast. Come to our

Interesting official testimony from survivors of the Titanic (Long)

During the United States Senate Inquiry into the sinking of the “unsinkable” Titanic on April 15, 1912, many survivors provided testimony describing their last moments on the ship. Below is a sampling of those testimonies. Testimony of Olaus Abelseth (Testimony taken separately before Senator William Alden Smith, chairman of the subcommittee.) (The witness was sworn by Senator Smith.)   Senator SMITH. I wish you would tell the reporter when you first knew of this collision, and what you did, and where you were in the ship. I believe you were a steerage passenger? Mr. ABELSETH. Yes, sir. Senator SMITH. In the forward part of the ship? Mr. ABELSETH. Yes. I was in compartment G on the ship. Senator SMITH. Go ahead and tell us just what happened. Mr. ABELSETH. I went to bed about 10 o'clock Sunday night, and I think

Bad parents rejoice – this terrifying clown (“Wrinkles the Clown”) will traumatize your misbehaving kids for cash

Have a misbehaving child? Need a new weapon for your parental arsenal? Just feeling mean? For a bit of cash, this creepy-looking clown will scare the crap out of your disobedient child. Since 2013, Wrinkles the Clown has been terrifying kids in southwest Florida, dishing out punishment for negative behavior for parents too lazy to do their own job. According to the Palm Beach Post, Wrinkles has been spotted outside people’s homes and in public areas for the past few years. As proof, they released a video of Wrinkles showing him “hiding under a child's trundle bed” while the child sleeps. After he makes his reveal, he places what looks like a small creepy doll near the child and quietly walks away. His distinctive mask with large gaping, black eye

70% of the world’s Saiga antelopes mysteriously drop dead within two-week period – scientists unable to determine cause

At one time, there were millions of Saiga antelopes roaming the plains of central Asia. Over time, their numbers were brought down by disease, hunting (their horns were used in traditional Chinese medicine) and oddly, the landing of the Soyuz capsule from the International Space Station (no explanation has yet been given as to why). Still, the population held steady at a quarter-million antelopes until six months ago when 70% of the population mysteriously died. More than 200,000 Saiga antelopes fell dead over the course of just two weeks. Entire herds were wiped out and the causes of the deaths remains a mystery. Conservationists met last week to discuss whether the mass mortality event was attributed to changes in weather or vegetation. Scientists will attempt to repopulate

Caught on video – military transport carrying nuclear weapon gets rear-ended by armored vehicle

The videographer that shot frames from the video below, explained that a military convoy, complete with several military helicopters in the air and federal marshals leading the way, passed through his town (Nevada area). According to the videographer, the convoy was delivering nuclear weapons or nuclear material (possibly a common occurrence in his area). As the videographer was shooting the film, he says a federal agent pulled over and attempted to stop him from filming the procession. During the distracting melee, one of the trailing escort vehicles rammed into the back of the truck the convoy was protecting!  Not sure (and afraid to ask) what happened to the cargo inside. Here is the convoy approaching the man’s position (presumably the federal official has already attempted to stop

Pacific Coast fishermen provide proof (photos) that Fukushima is contaminating U.S. fish with radioactive material

  Tumors on Pacific Coast fish cause concern for local fishermen When Hirasaka Hiroshi caught this terrifying large fish in the waters off northern Japan (see photo above), the catch added substance to Japanese fishermen’s concerns over the effects of the Fukushima nuclear power plant accident on local fish populations. Now, just days after we learned that radiation from the devastated Fukushima nuclear power plant is much worse than expected (exposure at the plant can kill a person in less than an hour), a geoengineering researcher reports that fishermen from the United States Pacific Coast are growing increasingly alarmed as they catch more and more fish filled with bloody, cancerous tumors. The situation is concerning because unlike people, tumors are rarely found on fish. In fact, up until the past

Employees at haunted Mexico City International Airport proffer photos of little-girl ghost who regularly haunts their airport

  Reports of the ghost of a 7-year-old girl roaming the grounds of Mexico City International Airport (Aeropuerto Internacional Benito Juárez) are not new. The spirit has been seen by employees in and around the terminal and in the airport’s “cemetery of planes” where unrepairable damaged parts of aircraft are thrown away. Several months ago, a guard took the picture above of what he says is the little-girl ghost peering through the window of an abandoned plane. Now this week, another photo has surfaced showing the ghostly image of the girl in front of the airport’s entry. Most witnesses describe the little-girl ghost wearing a long nightgown and cap (reminiscent of the Victorian era) and often she is seen carrying a ball in her hand. Airport security note that the

Mystery 2,250 long canyon-like crack appears suddenly in Wyoming – and may still be growing

This crack in the earth is huge – more than seven football fields long and nearly a football field in width – and it appeared virtually overnight. Scientists are not sure what caused it, how it formed, or how much bigger it may get. “A hunter stumbled on it when he was hunting there Oct. 1. And the next time anybody went out there, a few weeks later, there it was, this huge slide or crack or whatever it is.” The crack appeared in a rural area, about 40 miles south of Ten Sleep in north central Wyoming, on state-owned land in the middle of a cattle ranch. The land began to crack in late September but geologists were stunned to find it had developed from a mere

Stunning series of photographs captures orca killer whale punting a seal over eight stories into the air

In an unbelievable sequence of photographs, an orca killer whale punts a seal over eight-stories in the air. The “kill” was photographed near Victoria, British Columbia, Canada by a video crew filming a group of whales known as T69s for a promotional film (advertising the services of Eagle Wing Whale Watching Tours). While orcas are known to stun harbor seals by hitting them, flinging them in the air is a rare occurrence. Brett Soberg, owner of Eagle Wing, says it’s only the fourth time he’s seen an orca do this in about 20 years. Orcas hit other sea animals with a tremendous amount of force. In fact, when they hit Dall's porpoises, another of their prey, according to researcher Chris Parsons: "They do it to eviscerate them. They

After repeated UFO sightings at Delhi airport, Indian security forces and air force put on high alert

On October 23, 2015, Air Traffic Controllers at Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) Airport observed unexplained flying objects hovering  around the airport. According to airport officials: “A member of Indian Air Force (IAF) sits at the ATC tower of Delhi airport. At 10:44am on Friday, he first noticed a flying object over runway 9-27, the smallest runway of Delhi airport. He reported two more objects at 10:50 am and 10:55 am, flying outside the airport boundary. “ Sightings of the suspicious objects repeated on October 27,2015 and a helicopter was sent to investigate. Two days later, the pilot of an Air Vistara reported being blinded by a bright light while landing on IGI’s runway 29. Today we learn that the Indian airport has been put on high alert

Uncanny – Man dumbfounded after meeting his doppelganger (physical double) on international flight

Neil Thomas Douglas was stunned to find the passenger sitting next to him appeared to be his identical twin. A friend sitting in the seat in front of them snapped this picture and forwarded to his wife who tweeted: “Guy on the right is the husband of my friend. Guy on the left is a STRANGER he met on a flight last night!” The coincidences continued when the two bumped into each other again at a local pub and found that they had both checked into the same hotel!  Many social media users have commented on the startling likeness, with one calling it “spooky”. A “doppelganger” is a look-alike or double of a living person with neither having any sort of familial relationship to each other.  It is
