Man wearing TV on head drops more than 50 TV sets on random front porches.

Doorbell surveillance cameras across Virginia captured video of a mysterious man with a TV set over his head laying older television sets on various people's front porches. Outdated TV boxes were found at more than 50 homes. One lucky resident told reporters: "We got an old tube-style TV, 13 inch!" Officers worked throughout the day collecting the old sets and hauling them away. "The police did a great job of coming up and collecting them all."

Woman visits doctor after severe eye pain – doctor finds four tiny bees living under her eyelid.

A woman in Taiwan went through an eye-opening procedure this week when doctors removed four live bees that were living under her left eyelid. Hung Chi-ting, the head of the ophthalmology department at Taiwan's Fooyin University Hospital, told reporters: "I saw something that looked like insect legs, so I pulled them out under a microscope slowly, and one at a time without damaging things inside.” The bees, a species known as halictidae, nest near graves and fallen trees. The woman believes the bees blew into her eyes while she was visiting a relative’s grave site. The woman says she washed her eyes but the severe pain persisted. “It was very painful. Tears wouldn't stop coming out of my eye. I was scared to death." Doctors say her eyesight has

YouTubers are ordering and opening bizarre and terrifying “mystery boxes” from the dark web.

It’s beginning to gain traction across the United States – the opening and filming of “mystery boxes” ordered from the Dark Web. The boxes can cost from hundreds to thousands of dollars and thus far, have contained a terrifying and disturbing assortment of bizarre contents. Authorities are as of yet, unsure if the boxes (and videos of them being opened) are real or hoaxes but are warning people to avoid purchasing the mystery boxes from the Dark Web. "The dark web is dangerous to even access. Why would you buy unknown things from there?" Mystery Boxes have been offered on the Dark Web for many years. They began as add-on "gifts", an incentive to purchase more items, for customers who purchased drugs or weapons from a

Real-life mad scientist – “Mad” Mike Hughes blasts off in homemade steam-powered rocket – and survives

He's a limo driver from California who calls himself a self-taught scientist. Others say he’s a crackpot. What we know for certain is that he’s no chicken. This week 61-year-old “Mad” Mike Hughes took the first step to proving the world if truly flat (more accurately, Frisbee-shaped). According to Mike, to verify the earth is flat, we must view it from space. And Mike doesn’t trust NASA’s version of events. Thus, he decided to build his own rocket (with the wondrous words “flat earth” emblazoned on the side). “Do I believe the Earth is shaped like a Frisbee? I believe it is.  Do I know for sure? No. That’s why I want to go up in space.” Mike constructed his steam-powered rocket, dubbed Liberty One, and a

Are “invisible terrestrial entities” all around us? Physicist says yes, and has photos to back it up.

Dr. Ruggero Santilli, a notable expert in physics and mathematics, gets no respect. According to many scientists, he’s a crank. Santilli however, says there is an “effective conspiracy to suppress, or refuse to investigate, novel theories which may conflict with established scientific theories. Such will surely be the case with Santilli’s newest discovery – a concave-lens telescope that reveals an invisible part of the universe many of us would just as soon stay tucked behind the curtain. Santilli's telescope detects Invisible Terrestrial Entities (ITEs) Unlike normal telescopes which use convex lenses, Santilli’s telescope was developed with a concave lens. According to Santilli (with pictures to back it up) his invention lets us see “entities in our terrestrial environment that are invisible to our eyes and conventional Galileo telescopes”
