Women spots doppelganger in magazine photo and has spent five years trying to find her

In 2010, while travelling via airplane from Mexico to Spain, a photo in a Mediterranean magazine caught a traveler’s eye. The article was about a tomato throwing festival (La Tomatina) held annually in Bunol, Spain. In the photo was a woman, shirt stained with tomato juice, smiling at the camera. The smiling girl was the man’s cousin – or so he thought. He called his cousin to query how she came to be at the tomato throwing contest without letting any of the family know she was going. Thus began Eva Casado’s five-year journey to find her doppelganger. “When he told me about the woman in the photo, I thought he was crazy because I had never gone to Tomatina and there’s no way the resemblance could

Black Plague infected fleas surface in two different Arizona counties last week

In the 1300’s, the Black Plague decimated Europe killing more than half of the population. Even today, mention of the plague sends chills up our spine. Well, bundle up tight. Fleas carrying Black Plague have been found in at least two different Arizona counties and officials are warning residents about hiking in areas where fleas, or dead animals, may be present. The infected fleas were first found last week on local prairie dogs in Coconino County. This week, fleas carrying the plague were found in Navajo county.

Man is electrocuted, falls eight stories, catches on fire – and survives!

A California man has survived an almost unimaginable series of tragedies this week. According to KTVU in North Bay, California, an unidentified man climbed a 100-foot high voltage transmission tower which sits along a popular walking path in Santa Rosa on August 8, 2017. A witness to the tragedy, Kevin Pickering, was near the area when the accident occurred: “I heard this boom and about a minute later, I heard the screams.” A second witness was also alerted by the sound of the explosion. “He was screaming and you could see it was like he was trying to get himself off the lines. At first he was unconscious, then he came to, and it looked like he was getting shocked some more.” An electrician working by the site told

Weird ad: Looking to produce super baby, man seeks women to impregnate during 2017 solar eclipse

Solar eclipses can be eerie events. At totality, a creepy darkness settles and shadows change into unsettling broken forms. It’s a weird experience to say the least. But a guy from Europe has submitted a proposal which adds a whole new level of weirdness to the occasion. An unusual ad appeared on San Francisco Bay Area’s Craigslist this week from a man seeking a women to impregnate during the solar eclipse (the proposed location is reportedly Oregon). The objective is to time the act to reach climax during totality. According to the ad, the result will be “a child that will be on the next level of human evolution”. The overexuberant advertiser claims the act will allow the two participants’ cosmic energy to align resulting in knowledge

James Maybrick diary – new evidence reveals Maybrick may have been Jack the Ripper

The discovery of a diary signed “Jack the Ripper” The journal, dubbed the Maybrick diary, surfaced in 1992 when Michael Barrett, an unemployed former Liverpool scrap metal dealer, said the diary had been given to him by a friend, Tony Devereux.

Here comes Nibiru (Planet X) – new fears earth will end on September 23, 2017

Mysterious Nibiru or Planet X Interest in Nibiru, or Planet X, arose around 1976 when researchers noted that ancient Middle Eastern cultures, including the Babylonians and Sumerians, told of a mysterious planet that orbited the Sun every 3,600 years. At first the claim was scoffed at – then NASA announced new evidence of a hypothetical Planet X deep in the solar system. Today, doomsters say the hidden planet is on track for a reappearance, and this time, it will be disastrous for mankind. NASA scientists had long known of discrepancies in the orbits of Uranus and Neptune but only recently found evidence of a Neptune-sized mystery planet that orbits our sun in an unusually elongated path far beyond Pluto. They theorize it could have a mass about

An exotic spy plan has been circling above Seattle and its suburbs for days

Reports came out late last week of a spy plane that has been circling ominously over Seattle for nine straight days. No word on what the mission is or what they have been looking for.

Reports indicate the plane is an Indonesian-built CASA CN-235-300 transport aircraft (call sign SPUD21) equipped with an unusually exotic array of spy equipment modifications.
