Secret war involving "U.F.O"s ?

Question by : Secret war involving "U.F.O"s ?
On google earth i found something interesting, in a place that is.....interesting !!!.....OO..... , copy and paste the coordinates below into google earth and zoom closer to the ground , you`ll see it in the water, the squiggly light thingy, looks like something was docking or leaving when the image was took, all of the boats in and around the area are clearly visible and are not squiggly, so what is it ? and before you finnish battling your mentality on this one......look at the surrounding area...........does the place look "busy" ?? so........what are the containers and stuff ??? is this some kind of "under water" base ??

37°50`48.18"N140°57`17.47"E --- yes SIR !! ( SIR -ETTE :/ ) its in the one and only -> fukushima ! ..OO..

Could this be the reason someone (take a big guess who) bombed the nuclear plant ??

watch this vid ........ focus on the tower in the left, and you will see an object drop in the centre of the screen before the "explosion"...................then google " Rods from God" <- they don't even need explosives, the fall from the atmosphere makes the impact unbearable. hover over 9 seconds and keep clicking when it plays to about 11 seconds so it loops.....you don't see a big rocket or anything like that but you can clearly see something drop --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xHqQsJUjUR0

A bit info on rods from god too , since i`m so kind :) -> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinetic_bombardment

B.T.W the sun is fake, bluebeam has been in operation for a couple of years now..........what the fcuk has happened to us ?? we`ve really lost the plot now...........if you thought our history was ******* up, you dont want to see our future
Sin-Laan

I didnt say they are, and you obviously dont know about the governments of the world. I`m not paranoid, just looking for answers, i suggest you pay close attention to the fukushima video i have provided a link to........theres a war being fought for control, we the people are not allowed to know about the tech , or the goals, because we are not superior like the idiots who rule the world believe they are. And earthquake lights arent what we all saw in hong kong my dear, earthquake lights are a small rainbow like glow in the sky, not a big bright light close to the surface. look into it.
Shawn Robin

U.F.O`s aren't operated by little green men, the governments build them, project blue beam is cloaking the sun, and haarp is used to create earthquakes -- japan was threatened with an earthquake machine years ago-- and if you dont know what nwo is i suggest you take a crash course in it because it`ll be breathing down your neck very soon- the oslo bombing was a false flag - look at the armed men protecting the people, imagine that allover europe, armed forces occupying the streets, complete weather control - come on for fcuk sake, its not conspiracy theory rubbish anymore, its right infront of you -> hidden in plain sight- fema camps, mass grave sites, underwater body bags, chemtrails the list goes on and on, but your all far too busy sucking eachother off, playing xbox, and stuffing your face with contaminated prepacked food that you believe were all idiots-because your told to- they peddle fact as fiction and keep you under control.

Chinese Stage Massive Pillow Fight


SHANGHAI (Reuters) - A whirlwind of pillows bearing the names of bosses and teachers filled the air as hundreds of Chinese gathered to blow off stress in Shanghai, staging a massive pillow battle.



The annual event marked its fifth year with such a surge in interest from stressed young office workers and students that organizers held two nights of pillow fighting before Christmas Day and plan another for Dec 30.



"Nowadays there are many white collar workers and students that are facing huge pressures at work and at school, so we hope to give them an outlet to release their stress before the end of the year," said Eleven Wang, the founder and mastermind behind the epic pillow fights.



"Sometimes we have pressure on us by our bosses, teachers and exams, so today we can go crazy. Everyone will get to write onto the pillows the names of their bosses, teachers and exam subjects, and enjoy and vent to the maximum," he added.



"After releasing the stress, we can once again face our daily life with joy."



Pillows were handed out at the door as participants entered, then emotion stoked by a rock concert, with many on the floor of the huge event space rocking and waving their pillows in time to the music.



Then came the fighting.



Pillows filled the air, with many combatants opting for throwing rather than using them to whack opponents. A few hapless participants shielded their heads with as many pillows as they could hold, but most ventured eagerly in to the fray.



"I really enjoyed the fight, but my friend was useless. He joined in for two ticks and could not go on, he was afraid of getting beaten by other people," said 24-year-old Chen Yi.



"I thought it was pretty meaningful. I've just been working so much (at the office) and never get to break out in a sweat, so it felt really good."



Others gamely said they enjoyed the experience even though they ended up as attackees rather than attackers.



"I don't know who pushed me, but all of a sudden I was in the pile of pillows, where I became the target of many people, and was beaten by all sorts of people," said university student Zhu Shishan. "Very meaningful."

The Anguished Man Update 5 | The Anguished Man Keeps On Wailing

The Anguished Man haunted painting is at it again. I received this update from it's owner. Check out the very cool video.
 

I thought you might be interested in this update. I had to take the painting out of storage for an interview with a TV show so I decided to once again record overnight. I recorded for six hours and along with the usual noises I recorded a smoke like mist (see link below). At first it looks like smoke rising then it suddenly seems to take another form and change direction. There is no way there could have been any smoke or mist in that room. Thank you.

''The Bloop is the name given to an ultra-low frequency and extremely powerful underwater sound detected by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) several times during 1997. According to the NOAA description, it "rises rapidly in frequency over about one minute and was of sufficient amplitude to be heard on multiple sensors, at a range of over 5000 km. The source of the sound remains unknown...'' ''Scientists determined that its wave pattern indicates it was made by an animal, and not a giant electromagnet sucking a plane out of the sky, as the creators of Lost were no doubt hoping.'' ''While the audio profile of the bloop does resemble that of a living creature, the system identified it as unknown because it was far too loud for that to have been the case: it was several times louder than the loudest known biological sound.'' ''There is no animal big enough or loud enough to make that kind of noise, not by a long shot. Not a blue whale, not a howler monkey, not a startled teenage girl.''

Q&A: I don't want to sound crazy but could this be a possible explanation for ghosts?

Question by Zed-0: I don't want to sound crazy but could this be a possible explanation for ghosts?
I thought that ghosts could actually be in the past and we are in the present and it somehow interfears with the present. We can hear them speak when they talk to a relative. They will hear us speak from the future and be afraid. They will move things and it moves it in the future. We will see them but only with the present back ground. And the reason I thought of this. Romby Martin was the 2nd person to be haunted on earth and she heard someone say, "What is this place?" in the exact words, it was what the ghost hunters said in her house. I seen it on the episode. I read a book about her than and it said she was the 2nd person to be haunted. Online it was really hard to find but when I found it, it sounded exactly like their voice. In 1722.
Well I mean sometimes it only interferese with us

Alexandra Holzer: Sherlock Holmes Meets Dracula at Sequential Pulp/Dark Horse Comics! (PHOTOS)

Part II interview with comic book writer genius Martin Powell as the new film Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is just released! To find Part I please click here.





2011-12-18-Scarlet_BookCover3.jpg





Alexandra Holzer: Congratulations on the new release of your 25th Anniversary Edition of Scarlet in Gaslight! How has that been going for you?



MARTIN POWELL: Thank you. It's been wildly gratifying for me, to say the least. When the book was first published, twenty-five years ago, I never dreamed it would last so long. Who could know? I remember hoping I would catch a bit of attention, at most, and then I moved on to the next project. After all, Scarlet in Gaslight took almost two years to find a publisher, so hardly felt as if I had a hit on my hands. Still, it was an important story for me, being the first thing of any length and significance I ever attempted. Ultimately, of course, it was published and it worked out better than I could ever have hoped, selling out its original print run, and receiving an Eisner Award nomination, and was even very favorably reviewed in the Washington Post just this past year. Although I'm passionate about the book, I was more surprised than anyone that it ended up making my career, professionally, and has remained in print all these years. By the way, I want to express a special thanks to Pulp 2.0 Press, who restored the pages with artist Seppo Makinen, and added cool new special features which has made this volume the definitive edition of the book. They've really given Scarlet in Gaslight the star treatment. It looks gorgeous.



AH: I understand that this book has a bit in common with the new Sherlock Holmes film opening today in theaters. Can you explain a bit about that?



MP: Well, although both the new film and my book feature Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous detective, I'm really not sure at this point what else they may share in common--as I haven't yet seen the new movie. I understand Professor Moriarty, Holmes' arch-nemesis, is in this film and he plays a major role in Scarlet in Gaslight, too. Beyond that, I'm not certain about any other similarities. We'll have to wait and see. It's exciting to see a resurgence of popular interest in Sherlock Holmes again, that's for certain, although he's never really ever gone away.â?¨



AH: In closing, being that this graphic novel which pits "The World's Greatest Detective, Sherlock Holmes against Count Dracula, the Lord of the Vampires, is amazing in its own right, do you see more series like this in the future, maybe for television?




2011-12-18-scarletpreviewpage.jpg




MP: I have written nine other Sherlock Holmes adventures over the years, and just finished my interpretation of The Hound of the Baskervilles as a graphic novel for Sequential Pulp/Dark Horse Comics. I've had several other Dracula tales published, too. All of these will be getting their own new editions in 2012 and for some time to come. Regarding Scarlet in Gaslight itself, there will be merchandise soon, too, t-shirts and the like, and I would very much like to see a film come from it. When I originally wrote the book, I did it as a sort of tribute to the British Hammer Studios horror movies, which I love. I constructed the mystery-adventure like a screenplay, which is one of the reasons it's so visual. I longed to see such a movie when I was in my teens, which partially influenced my writing years later. Although there have been such things since from other writers and artists, Seppo and I were the first to present Sherlock Holmes and Count Dracula together in comics. It seems inevitable one day such a film will be produced, and obviously I hope Scarlet in Gaslight is the one which makes it to the screen. For now, I'm thrilled the book has been released in such an elegant new package. It's my own early Christmas present.

I just met this guy on the west coast who is convinced the world is being purposely sprayed with biological warfare matter to thin out mankind.
OK, fine so far, I cannot disprove it, so... let's just accept the idea.
As proof, he pointed out the ubiquitous "chemtrails" in the sky, left behind by jets. To me, they look just like airplane exhaust condensation.
How do you tell exhaust fumes from CIA-engineered, planned apocalypse type spray then?

In Search Of... Bigfoot (Part 2 of 3) Nimoy

The Science Of Western Vs. Asian Food

Many differences divide traditional North American and Asian food cultures -- cooking methods, dining habits, famous recipes. They each have signature ingredients -- think of soy sauce, ginger and sriracha in Southeast Asian food or butter and molasses in Southern food. But a new study from an international team led by Yong-Yeol Ahn of Northeastern University shows that there are actually deeper patterns at play.



It turns out North American and Western European cuisines tend to include ingredients with similar flavor molecules together in one recipe, while East Asian and Southern European cuisines tend not to. That means that the ingredients in most recipes traditionally associated with Western cuisine overlap and deepen each others' constituent flavors, while those in Asian recipes tend to bristle against one another with distinctive flavors.



The researchers discovered this trend by analyzing recipes they found online at AllRecipes and Epicurious. They downloaded the tens of thousands of recipes available on each of those databases, then added added data on the underlying flavor molecules that make each ingredient taste the way it does.



The process of appending flavor molecules to ingredients allowed them to find the degree of taste-similarity of any given pair of ingredients. This in itself led to some interesting findings -- including the "flavor network" visualized above, which divides the world of ingredients into different zones of similar flavor groups. That allowed the researchers to empirically demonstrate the overlap in flavors between alcohols and fruits, between vegetables and herbs and between meats and beans.



But the real interest of the study comes through its application of this raw data to differences in cultures' cuisines. After a lot of dense statistical analysis, the researchers found that much of the divide between the flavor-coordination tendencies of each cuisine can be ascribed to the prevalence of just a few ingredients.



The harmoniousness of North American cuisine's flavors really stems from its reliance on a few heavy-tasting products commonly associated with baked goods, especially milk, butter, cocoa, vanilla, cream, cream cheese, egg, peanut butter and strawberries. And the study chalked the dissonance of East Asian cuisine up to its use of beef, ginger, pork, cayenne, chicken and onion. These ingredients are characteristic of the recipes in each cultures' ingredients -- and share relatively many flavor molecules, and relatively few flavor molecules, respectively, with the ingredients they're often paired with.



One intriguing nugget from the study, though, bodes well for the future careers of the world's ambitious chefs. In the introduction to the piece, the researchers note that the ingredients they found in their two recipe databases could theoretically be combined into 10 quadrillion recipes -- of which only one million, just .0000001%, have already been recorded.

WATCH: This Baby Bat Will Change The Way You Feel About Bats

Prepare to have your opinion about bats changed forever.

Meet Lil' Drac, a short-tailed fruit bat taken in by Bat World Sanctuary, an organization with a mission that includes promoting the protection and conservation of wild bats.

VIDEO BELOW

According to the organization, this little guy was abandoned by his mother who was traumatized when a zoo she was living in closed and she had to be moved.

Because he's not being raised by his mother, the volunteers stroke his stomach with a cotton swab to simulate the feeling of a mother's tongue. And as you'll see in the video below, he's learned to suck milk through a small piece of foam.

There have been other notable rescues of orphaned bats this year.

Last month, nearly 100 orphaned baby fruit bats (a different species than Lil' Drac) were rescued in Australia after their parents had died from February's Cyclone Yasi.

And in January, the Australian Bat Clinic and Wildlife Trauma Centre rescued another 130 orphaned bats whose parents had been killed in flooding on the country's Gold Coast.

Note: If you see a bat, don't touch it -- contact animal control.

Scientists Discover Planet With Earth-Like Characteristics

NASA announced Monday the discovery of Kepler-22b, the first planet the Kepler spacecraft has discovered in the habitable zone, an area with a distance from a star where temperatures will permit the existence of liquid water.



The discovery of Kepler-22b, which is 600 light-years away from Earth, brings scientists one step closer to finding a planet that could possibly harbor life.



"This is a major milestone on the road to finding Earth's twin," Douglas Hudgins, Kepler program scientist said in a statement. "Kepler's results continue to demonstrate the importance of NASA's science missions, which aim to answer some of the biggest questions about our place in the universe."



IMAGE BELOW



Kepler-22b has several Earth-like characteristics: Its temperature is around 72 degrees Fahrenheit and its radius is 2.4 times Earth's. The planet completely orbits its star, which is similar to our sun, every 290 days, just 75 days shy of an Earth year.



Last week, the National Optical Astronomy Observatory announced the discovery of Kepler-21b, a planet with a radius 1.6 times Earth's. But unlike Kepler-21b, which is only about 3.7 million miles away from its sun and is therefore a scorching 2,960 degrees Fahrenheit, Kepler-22b is about 79 million miles from its sun, coming in at a pleasant 72 degrees.



Still, NASA says it's not yet clear if Kepler-22b is composed or rock, gas or liquid.



Scientists use the Kepler spacecraft to discover planets by analyzing extremely faint dips in light from far-away stars. These "dips" occur each time the planet passes between the Kepler and its sun, therefore obstructing the star's light. In order for a planet to be confirmed, scientists must observe the celestial body orbit its sun three times.



Since Kepler-22B takes 290 days to orbit its sun, it took nearly three Earth years for scientists to confirm that it was a planet. Steve Howell, a scientist at the NASA Ames Research Center who's on the Kepler team, told The Huffington Post that scientists first noticed the a drop in light only days after Kepler was launched in 2009.



"We were just real lucky," Howell told HuffPost. "We saw the first hint of this three days after we started doing science operations right after launch."



According to CNN, the Kepler spacecraft has led to the identification of 2,326 planet candidates since its mission began.



But the most thrilling discoveries are still to come.



"It's tremendously exciting," Howell said, adding that the Kepler spacecraft continues to find planets more and more like Earth. "We're moving out to orbital periods that are nearly and equal to the Earth, and that means very soon we're going to be finding [planets] very near the earth, what we'd call true earth analogs. We'll be there. We'll be there probably within a year, very easily."

Would You Choose To Date Leftovers?

Online dating has long catered to all sorts of people with strange quirks and bizarre habits. But now, there's a dating service that matches people up to share their leftovers-- as in food, not lovers.



Dubbed Restdejting, suitors are invited to enter five ingredients left in their fridge, reports Wired.



The selected ingredients are then published on Facebook for other Restdejting singletons to see.



Springwise reports there's also a speed dating version where you select ingredients before penciling in a date for two, three or even four people.



One ad from the website reads:

"Leftover lettuce looking for steamed crab. Meal for three? Please let me know."



Another ad opts to marry a nut with some dairy:

"Large walnut looking for strong cheese. Meal for two? Look forward to hearing from you!"



The brainchild of Lantmannen, a Swedish farmers cooperative, the dating service aims to spark romance between the like-minded eco-conscious without harming the Earth.



So far, the website is only available in Swedish, where a fifth of all food is reportedly thrown out.



The Scandinavian country isn't the only nation guilty of food waste. In fact, the problem is global.



In the U.S., Americans generate more than 34 million tons food waste per year, reports the EPA.



Meanwhile, some 25 percent of all freshwater, and 4 percent of all oil consumed, are used to produce food that is never eaten.

White noise for paranormal phenomenon?


Question by Tom S: White noise for paranormal phenomenon?
White noise is audio energy of equal intensity at all frequencies. This is the noise that you hear on a blank TV station or FM radio station. Apparently if you record many hours of white noise onto a cassette tape and then listen to it, then you might hear human voices trying to contact you. Approximately 10% of the time the voices are either angry or are warning you.

Some people claim that this "Electronic voice phenomenon" is of a paranormal origin or voices of the deceased. Others believe that it's just random noise that happens to assemble itself into something that sounds like a voice (much like a monkey typing randomly on a keyboard - words or sentences will be formed if you wait long enough). Others believe that it's just a human characteristic to find familiar patterns amongst random stimuli.

This experiment is simple to do. Has anyone ever tried this?

Hours After Making Escape, Inmate Found In Port-A-Potty

An inmate who jumped from a moving van while being taken back to prison Friday afternoon was found by police six hours after making his bold escape -- in an Illinois port-a-potty.



Cesar Sanchez, 37, was on his way to the Stateville Correctional Center in Crest Hill, Ill. following a court appearance when he somehow jumped from the prisoner transport van in southwest suburban Lockport, the Chicago Sun-Times reports.



Illinois Department of Corrections spokeswoman Sharyn Elman told the Chicago Tribune that authorities were investigating whether Sanchez, who was handcuffed and in a prison jumpsuit, kicked open the van door before jumping out.



After making his escape, Sanchez reportedly hitched a ride on a delivery truck to Rockdale, near Joliet, NBC Chicago reports. He was ultimately tracked to Waste Management facility in the area which contained several hundred portable toilets.



"As you can imagine, looking through 300 port-a-potties was going to be quite a job," Will County Sheriff Paul Kaupas told NBC Chicago.



Police did not have to open every door, however. Authorities used "infrared, heat-sensing technology attached to a helicopter" and dogs to narrow the search, the Sun-Times reports. They found the inmate inside one of the portable toilets about 8:15 p.m.



â??He was in the doo-doo,â? Kaupas told CBS Chicago.



Sanchez is serving a 7-year-sentence for burglary. His previous convictions include shoplifting, robbery, aggravated battery, motor vehicle theft and unlawful use of a credit card

Criticize my writing please?


Question by lawlman91: Criticize my writing please?
The golden and high palace walls watched over the Prince who strode across the red carpet, approaching the king.

"Yes, father?" the prince knelt before the king.

Sternly, the king declared, "Lead the Trident."

The prince's eyes widened with worry, "W-why?"

"Why?!" the king snapped, "You dare question orders?!"

"The Trident is a suicide mission, father."

The king remarked, "It is not."

The prince bottled rage, "By what statistics, father? We'll be outnumbered four-to-one. Why does the Trident even exist in the first place?"

"Listen to me," the king reassured, "You'll be all right, Stan. Gonza will assist you"

A tear rolled down Stan's face as he recognized the authority of the order, and the inevitability of dying with the all-out attack force, the Trident. He also recognized his own inability to lead, pra quality that had haunted him since adolescent awareness.

He had worried about becoming king in a few years because of his poor leadership. Now, he was immediately called to lead.

Bank Courier Van Loses Bags Of Cash On Pa. Highway (VIDEO)

UPPER ST. CLAIR, Pa. -- A bank courier van has spilled more than $ 100,000 in cash along a Pennsylvania highway, and motorists have stopped to grab it.



Police say much of the money was blown around by the wind. Lt. James Englert says "well into six figures" in cash is missing after the money grab in Upper St. Clair, just southwest of Pittsburgh.


Police are investigating why the door of the Fidelity Courier Service van opened. But they say the fact the door opened doesn't mean the money was free. They say taking it is theft.



Anyone who took money has a two-week grace period to return it without fear of prosecution.



The courier company is offering a reward for the return of the money.
