The Great Molasses Flood (aka Boston Molasses Disaster) At the time, molasses was a common sweetener and used to produce ethanol for alcoholic beverages and military munitions. It was of course, in high demand. The five-story tall steel tank at 529 Commercial Street in Boston held 2.3 million gallons of molasses weighing an astonishing 26 million pounds. On January 15, 1919, the weather was warmer than normal, allowing the molasses inside the tank to heat up and thin. At 12:30 in the afternoon, persons in the area heard a “sound like a rumble” and the ground shook. The Purity Distilling Company molasses tank had burst, releasing millions of gallons of molasses into the streets of Boston. The tidal wave of molasses that rushed through the streets of
We’ve spotted a lot of weird stuff on Mars but this one is particularly enticing. In the NASA JPL photo above, noticed the unusually-shaped object near the bottom of the outcrop of rocks. Here’s a zoomed version of the photo. And here’s an even tighter zoom. The object clearly appears to be a set of wheels on an axle! Of course NASA is arguing the object is nothing more than an uncommon-shaped rock but the paranormal community believes the object is further proof that Mars was once colonized by someone other than humans. Weird-shaped rocks, remnants of an alien civilization, or wreckage from a secret human-based excursion to the Red Planet? Sources: NASA
Theories abound after the discovery that ice melts in Antarctica have revealed a series of unusual pyramid-shaped objects. To date, three pyramids have been found. Two are located about 10 miles inland and a third near the Antarctica coastline. The origin and age of the structures is not known but many believe the area was once warm enough to be occupied by humans. Dr. Vanessa Bowman of the British Antarctic Survey told reporters: “Go back 100 million years ago and Antarctica was covered in lush rainforests similar to those that exist in New Zealand today.” Indeed, in 2009, pollen was discovered in the area and in 2012, scientists discovered 32 species of bacteria in east Antarctica suggesting a cozy temperature as high as 70F degrees. Some argue the objects
Paranormal Crucible published an interesting video this week in which they analyze a NASA Mars photo that they claim captures an alien wearing a high-tech spacesuit. The petrified statuette appears to be holding a weapon of some sort too. They cleaned up the photo (the untouched photo is below) to reveal more detail. Oddly, the object does look like a classic gray alien. I still lean toward “rock” but indeed, it’s an interesting find. Sources: Paranormal Crucible
On Donald Trump’s first day of office, he will be 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old – and that scares the hell out of some people
The Bible says: Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast for it is a human number. His number is 666. - Revelation 13:16-18 The surprise election of Donald Trump as the next United States President has some religious scholars debating the significance of the numbers "666" and "777". Given an eerie numerical alignment, many now wonder if "777" is truly an angelic number or if the enigmatic mark of the beast, the number “666”, was miscalculated and instead should have been rendered as “777” in modern-day translations. Donald Trump starts office at 70 years, 7 months, and 7 days old Donald Trump was born on June 14, 1946. His first full day of office is January 21, 2017 (he will be inaugurated the day before).
Deadman’s Island, Coal Harbor, Vancouver Located just south of Stanley Park in Coal Harbor, Vancouver, it’s a tiny slash of rock just 7 ½ acres in size. Today a Canadian naval base is located on the island. Soldiers stationed on the base will attest the continuation of a dark sequence of events stretching back to pre-European settlement days that earned the island its sinister name – Deadman’s Island. Native American occupation of Deadman’s Island The island’s first recorded history began with the Coastal Salish Indian tribes who occupied the area since 600 AD. The Northern and Southern Salish tribes were embroiled in a bitter war when the Southern Salish initiated an incredibly evil deception. After kidnapping 200 women, children, and elders from the Northern tribe, the Southern Salish
