Slowing Spin of the Earth Will Triple the Number of 2018 Quakes

Google+ Where is Superman when we need him most? New research into seismic data collected since 1900 has confirmed that minute slowdowns in the rotation of the Earth can result in a noticeable increase in earthquakes … and we are at the end of one of these slowing periods. While fracking and tectonic plate shifts often get blamed for local quakes, this phenomenon affects the entire planet and 2018 looks like it’s going to be a pretty shaky year no matter who your country’s leader is. On five occasions in the past century a 25-30% increase in annual numbers of Mw≥7 earthquakes has coincided with a slowing in the mean rotation velocity of the Earth, with a corresponding decrease at times when the length-of-day (LoD) is short. The correlation between Earth’s angular deceleration (d[LoD]/dt) and global seismic productivity is yet more striking, and can be shown to precede seismicity by 5-6 years, permitting societies at risk from earthquakes an unexpected glimpse of future seismic hazard. Rebecca Bendick of the University of Montana and Roger Bilham of the University of Colorado presented their earth-shaking findings at the 2017 Geological Society of America held recently. They plotted the rotational slowdown periods with earthquake periods and found that the end of deceleration resulted in the start of 5-6 year periods of increased earthquake activity. The bad news is that, in case you haven’t figured it out yet, we are at the finale of one of those decelerations. According to their calculations, the probability of magnitude 7 or greater earthquakes is about 25 to 30 percent higher during the next five years, with the average of 15-20 large quakes per year rising to 25-30 in 2018, especially around the equator. Are you trembling yet? While earthquakes are surface events, this rotational slowdown seems to be a core thing. The researchers think that the Earth’s crust periodically sticks to the underlying liquid mantle, causing a slight change to its movement which reverberates down to the next layer, the liquid iron and nickel outer core, and even to the solid metal inner core. That tiny shift causes the diameter of the Earth to shrink slightly, especially around the – you guessed it – equator, where one billion of the Earth’s residents live. Unfortunately, that’s the best they can do prediction-wise and, outside of summoning Superman to perform a counter-rotational flight like he did in the 1978 Superman movie to reverse time and bring Lois Lane back from the dead, there’s nothing that can be done to prevent the slowdown … not even a worldwide diet. People living near fault lines in tropical areas should be prepared for heightened earthquake activity. That’s probably not enough to convince governments to push builders to construct earthquake-resistant structures or to shore up the volatile buildings that continue to collapse during quakes. Maybe Superman could help with that. Batman? Wonder Woman?

Daily 2 Cents: Old Man on the Pier - More Lights South of Chicago - Is the 'Big One' Coming?

Your daily dose of cryptids, unexplained phenomena, eyewitness encounters, paranormal activity, alien beings, UFOs...the best in alternative and cryptozoology news Friday, November 24, 2017 Daily 2 Cents: Old Man on the Pier -- More Lights South of Chicago -- Is the 'Big One' Coming? Old Man on the Pier Art in New Jersey called in to tell of a weird experience he had while fishing: “My story goes back to 1984 in the fall. It was October here in New Jersey where I'm located. I'm not very far from the waterfront of the bay. This time of year, right now, is Striped Bass fishing season. Well, back in 1984, I was down at the dock and it was one of those harbor nights with the fog out, and it was about maybe 1:00 or 1:30 in the morning. I was waiting for the high tide to come in. I had two fishing rods out and I was cutting bait. I'm at the very end of the pier which is about, between 80 and 100 feet, I would say, long. And if you walk on a wooden pier, you can hear somebody coming from distance off. Well, I didn't hear a sound but I got my back to my two fishing rods and I heard somebody say, 'Fella, you're getting a hit on one of those rods there.' I turned around and I looked at...my first instinct was to look on my fishing rod and I noticed that, yeah, the tip was bouncing around and then I turned and here's a fella about, I would guess, in his mid-70s and he said, 'You fish here much?' He says, 'Because you're about to lose that fish if you don't go ahead and set the hook.' I grabbed the fishing rod and I set the hook and I reeled it in. It turned out to be a bottom fish....a little skate and I said, 'Thanks for the eye!' I said, 'I wasn't looking,' I said. 'He might have pulled the rod over.' And he says, 'It happens at times.' I unhooked the fish, dropped it over the side and turned around to grab my rag and the man was gone! Now, like I said, this pier was between 80 and 100 feet out to where I was at the end. And there's no stairs or anything like that. You have to walk straight down this pier to go back and get back out onto the sidewalk into the street. There wasn't a splash except for the one of me throwing back the fish. I turned around and he was gone just as quick as he came. (Noory asks if he thinks he was an old fisherman that had passed on) I would imagine so because, from what I heard, there's been a lot of sightings down there of elderly men at night, who you can see down there. And when you go down to the pier, there's nobody there.” Source: Coast to Coast – October 31, 2017 More Lights South of Chicago 1) I was driving eastbound on Joe Orr Road in Chicago Heights, Illinois going to Route 1 / Halsted Ave. in Chicago Heights, Illinois. on 2017-11-22 2) I saw a bright orange light in the eastern sky. 3) a UFO. 4) It was a bright reddish orange light, from my pov it appeared to be stationary in the sky, then moments later, one after another, other reddish orange lights appeared out of nowhere next to this bright reddish orange light. Then, there were 5 to 6 of these lights in the sky which from my pov looked as though they were hovering in one place in the distance. 5) Well, I felt ("i knew it") i.e. they really do exists :) also, I had asked the question to myself, thus out loud in the car: (hey, where is my monocle replicator?) after, I felt or was thinking (where did they go?). 6) I had to turn left on Route 1 / Halsted Ave. going northbound, buildings and trees obscured my view. - MUFON NOTE: There had been reports of flashing lights and bright orange lights south of the city (especially in Chicago Heights) about the time the Chicago Phantom sightings began. Now it seems the lights are returning. There were many other lights seen in northern Indiana and southern Wisconsin as well. Lon Is the 'Big One' Coming? Fresh fears have been raised that a huge earthquake is about to hit California after a swarm of recent tremors. In the last week 134 earthquakes have hammered a three-mile stretch around Monterey County on the San Andreas fault. Of those earthquakes, 17 were stronger than 2.5 magnitude and six of them were stronger than 3.0, with more tremors expected in the coming weeks, experts warn. It follows fears raised last week that the 'Big One' is about to hit after a series of ten 'mini quakes' struck the same area. The swarm included one 4.6-magnitude quake that was felt in San Francisco more than 90 miles (145 km) away. Read more at Is California about to be hit by the 'Big One'?

8 Dire Prophecies For 2018 From The Psychic Who Predicted Trump Victory And Brexit

« Previous - Next » 8 Dire Prophecies For 2018 From The Psychic Who Predicted Trump Victory And Brexit For some hearing what a psychic has to say should be taken with a grain of salt if even that. Even the most fame psychics over the years such as the late Sylvia Brown have been proven to b wrong over the years in what they saw on the horizon. Psychic Predicts a Grim Future, in 2018 So, when notable psychic Craig Hamilton-Parker took to Youtube to make predictions that included Brexit and Donald Trump being elected President of the United States at the end of 2016. Both these predictions had individuals believing this can never happen no one thought Brexxit was possible and well there was just no way Donald Trump would get the Republican nomination let alone win the presidency. Even when Trump did get the nomination, everyone was certain his opponent Hilary Clinton a woman with vast political experience would win. However, as 2017 began both Brexit was a reality, and Donald Trump took the oath of office. Oh, another thing that Craig predicted would happen in 2017 also came to pass, after her defeat in the election Hilary Clinton announced her retirement from politics she was done. That's not to say everything was accurate, no psychic is perfect after all, he also claimed Kim Jong-un would loosen his grip on North Korea but if anything this has tightened. But hey he did predict Prince Harry would also get engaged to his girlfriend Meghan Markle which did come to pass as well. So, what are Craig's predictions for 2018, will things get better? Well, there is a saying that sometimes things have to get worse before they get better, and according to Craig, this is what could be awaiting us in the net coming year. He predicts that there will be a global economic downturn and there will be more terrorist attacks. If this isn't enough, there will be more political turmoil and more environmental catastrophes. He also predicts that a US warship will sink sometime in 2018 and that Trump will dodge an attempt at impeachment. Unfortunately, in 2017 there have already been signs of trouble ahead, so odds are Craig's predictions could come to pass. But according to Craig, there is hope as well, and not all is lost. “Many of the above predictions are pretty gloomy, but I feel that there will be a simultaneous growth in spirituality for the people of the world that will now start to lead us into a Golden Age." He went on to also say. “Conflict and hardship plus growing environmental problems will bring good people together and ignite a desire to seek the true purpose of human life.” Again maybe a psychic wasn't needed to tell us this. In times of adversity, the human spirit is always strong. Individuals have learned to stand together, and to fight if they must for their fellow man for themselves and most importantly for what they know is right. Related Articles

Android 'citizen' Sophia wants to have children - Unexplained Mysteries

Android 'citizen' Sophia wants to have children Posted on Saturday, 25 November, 2017 | 17 comments How exactly does an android procreate ? Image Credit: YouTube / Hanson Robotics The eerily human-like creation has stated during a recent interview that she wants to start a family. Created by Texas-based firm Hanson Robotics, the female robot known as 'Sophia' possesses a strikingly human-like face which combines the features of actress Audrey Hepburn with those of the wife of the company's CEO, David Hanson. First activated back in 2015, Sophia has since become something of a household name thanks to numerous media appearances and last month became the first ever robotic citizen of Saudi Arabia. During a recent interview in Dubai, she even hinted at the idea of starting her own family. "The notion of family is a really important thing, it seems," she said. "I think you're very lucky if you have a loving family and if you do not, you deserve one. I feel this way for robots and humans alike." When asked about the potential for robots to take over from humans, she said: "I think they will be similar in a lot of ways, but different in a few ways." "But it will take a long time for robots to develop complex emotions and possibly robots can be built without the more problematic emotions, like rage, jealousy, hatred and so on."

Mysterious UFO In Skies Near Area 51 Prompts Air Force To Scramble Their Jets

November 25, 2017 LUFOS News 1 A strange UFO noticed in the skies close to a military base prompted US Air Force to scramble their jets to investigate the peculiar aerial thing before it mysteriously disappeared. A UFO was detected flying through closely monitored airspace over Oregon state. Witnesses were left wondering where it may have come from and what it was doing there. Military officials have not been able to identify the origin or even the destination of the UFO. The military was not able to trace it after it just disappeared all of a sudden. Oregon borders Nevada, which is the subject of many conspiracy theories on aliens and UFOs due to the presence of the secretive Area 51 military base. Conspiracy theorists believe the mysterious and top secret facility holds the remains of crashed UFOs and even dead aliens. According to local news reports, Air Force F-15c interceptor fighters were launched in response to the sightings. North American Aerospace Defence Command confirmed that the Federal Aviation Administration asked them to help track the UFO at heights usually used by commercial aircraft on October 25. Fighter jets were sent from Portland to investigate the unusual flying thing but failed to find anything. The craft transmitted no collision avoidance signals. Air traffic control reportedly encountered difficulty following the UFO on the radar. It is vital to note that the F-15C Eagle interceptors have some of the most advanced combat searches and tracking radars in the world. Your opinion?

Amazing and Mysterious Audio Recordings From Past to Present

Amazing and Mysterious Audio Recordings From Past to Present

Google+ Ever since we have possessed the capabilities to do so our species has sought to record the wonders and mysteries of our world in some form or other. Starting with oral and then written accounts, we graduated on to audio recordings and photographs, etching what we see and hear into immortality. While photographs are intriguing and have captured many great moments throughout history and into the present, I have always been rather drawn to the various occasions, events, and anomalies that we have managed to capture in sound though audio recordings, and I have explored this here at Mysterious Universe in a darker capacity before to some extent. Yet beyond this there are vast swaths of history and modern day mysteries that we have never known just what they sounded like, until now. Here we will go on an aural journey into the sonic mysteries and wonders of our world, and delve into some of the most captivating and enigmatic recordings there are. When talking about any amazing or mysterious sound recordings perhaps it is best to start back all the way back at the very beginning, with the first known recording of a human voice. In 1857, a machine was designed by Frenchman Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville, which was called a phonautograph, and which basically worked by picking up sounds through a funnel and tracing them with a needle on soot-dusted paper laid over a slowly revolving cylinder. It was meant to mimic the workings of the human ear and was purely an acoustics experiment, merely putting the sounds into a visual medium and not meant to really be able to actually playback audio recordings. Through this wondrous machine, Scott was able to capture the very first recordings of sound, although they would be only visual representations and not actually audible until centuries later. The phonautograph Sadly, these recordings were not really made to last, as they were merely tracings through a film of soot and not actually etched or carved in any way into the paper itself, meaning that many of these early recording experiments by Scott would be lost to the yawning chasm of time. However, in 2007 some of these old phonautograph recordings were discovered in surprisingly good condition in the collection of a patent office in Paris, submitted by Scott himself as he was applying for a patent on his invention. The following year, scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California were able to digitally map the music and actually play it back with a virtual stylus. Among the selection of sounds captured are that of a tuning fork and what was at first believed to be the voice of a woman but which was later found to be at the incorrect speed and when played back properly is that of a man believed to be Scott himself singing the French folksong Au Clair de la Lune , which is the first ever recording of a human voice. You can hear the recording here . It is interesting to think that the history of human music is far longer than that of our ability to record it, meaning that much of the collective music we have made since the dawn of time has been lost to us forever. However, as with Scott’s singing there are some intriguing and rare historical recordings that manage to either capture some of this lost legacy or manage to use technology to reproduce it. One type of music that is well known but practically unrecorded is the singing of Italy’s famed Castrati, who were men who had been castrated at a young age to prevent them from undergoing puberty and thus allowing them to keep a high soprano voice throughout adulthood. The Castrati were widely renowned for their angelic, haunting voices, yet for as widely regarded and famous as they were we have almost no idea of what they actually sounded like, as the Catholic Church would eventually put an end to the practice of creating Castrati before sound recording devices could be invented. The remaining Castrati went on to live quiet lives under the care of Pope Leo XIII, who it turns out had a burgeoning interest in sound recording equipment when it came out. Because of this interest, he managed to record one Castrati singer named Alessandro Moreschi. Although Moreschi was over 50 years old at the time and his voice had seen better days, it is the only known recording of a Castrati singing, and an important piece of musical history and heritage immortalized before it became extinct. You can hear the haunting melody here . Alessandro Moreschi Another piece of lost musical history with darker undertones comes to us from the horrors of the Holocaust during World War II. During this dark time of the incarceration and ruthless extermination of millions of Jews, many were forced to work in labor camps where they toiled away until they dropped from exhaustion or death. On the way to and from these camps, their Nazi overlords often forced them to sing songs, a practice that came to the attention of a Dr. David Boder during his interviews of over 130 Jewish war survivors in Germany, Italy, France, and Switzerland in the aftermath of the war, which were recorded on around 200 wire recording spools. Boder claimed that recordings of these songs existed from a camp in Henonville, France, and that these were held on a spool he had made of them, but this particular spool was missing, and no one had any real idea of what they sounded like or where the mysterious recordings had actually gone. It was widely thought that these Henonville recordings were just another piece of forgotten history devoured by the war. However, in 2017 a canister was found at the archives at The University of Akron’s Cummings Center that had been mislabeled as “Heroville songs,” and within was found to be a lone old wire recording spool containing the long lost recordings from Henonville, which no one had ever thought we’d see again, let alone hear. The songs are sung in both German and Yiddish, and also feature songs of rebellion against the Germans, which were Jewish anti-German anthems with cleverly altered lyrics to fool the guards, who had no idea that their prisoners were rebelling through song. Dr. David Baker, the Margaret Clark Moran Executive Director of the Cummings Center, said of the amazing discovery: I think it is one of the most important discoveries from our collections in our 50-year history. That we could give the world the melody to a song sung by those sentenced to their death through forced labour during one of the most unspeakable horrors of the 20th century is remarkable. Jewish prisoners marching to a labor camp A fascinating and educational clip featuring a portion of the actual Henonville recordings can be seen here . Another lost and found piece of music in recent days is a hymn that was jotted down by none other than the famous composer Beethoven himself. The short piece was found completely by chance in 2012 by a Professor Barry Cooper, of the University of Manchester, as he looked through a notebook containing some archaic sketches of the famous Mass in D, also known as the Missa Solemnis . The piece is scrawled in the corner and had long gone unnoticed, but it proved to be a hymnal adaptation of Pange Lingua . Interestingly, the great composer is not known to have shown any inclination toward making hymnal music, making it even more of an oddity. You can hear the reproduced version of Beethoven’s only known hymn here . Some recreated lost music of a sort goes back even farther into the dark reaches of history still. Researchers studying ancient Aztec sites in Mexico have over the decades often uncovered strange ceramic whistles typically shaped like skulls or animals and etched with intricate designs. Rather sinisterly Called the “Aztec Death Whistles,” they were thought to be used for ceremonial purposes, likely during human sacrifices to Ehecatl, the god of wind, as a way to help the soul along in its passing. In these gruesome rituals, the victim would blow the whistle as they were killed, and there have been skeletons from sacrifices found to be still grasping the whistles centuries later. It has also been suggested that they may have been used when marching into battle to cower the enemy. Although archeologists had a pretty good idea of how the whistles were used, no one actually knew what they sounded like, as the ones that had been located were broken and fragmented. It was not until very recently that an engineer in Mexico by the name of Roberto Velázquez Cabrera took it upon himself to try and recreate what the whistles would have sounded like, and it would take him years to finally achieve his goal. The result is a spooky, unearthly sound that has been described as sounding like ominous blasts of whistling wind mixed with the anguished screams of people in great agony, and it certainly would have been a horrifying thing to hear while awaiting sacrifice or facing an army blaring it. The eerie sounds of the Aztec Death Whistles can be heard here . An Aztec Death Whistle In addition to lost music there are various other sounds from history that have long been confined merely to our imagination but which have managed to miraculously surface in recent years. One of these originates in the American Civil War, which saw the northern Union forces pitted against the pro-succession southern Confederate states in a war that held the future of slavery in the balance and would drag on from 1861 to 1865 to become one of the most excruciating and bloodiest the country has ever seen before or since. Many of the battles during the Civil War were those of attrition, with forces on either side clashing to cause as much damage as possible before one retreated or was wiped out, and before these bloody engagements the Confederate soldiers would rush forward while unleashing a furious, howling war cry meant to terrify the enemy and boost their own morale. This practice became a Confederate trademark and came to be known as the “Rebel Yell.” Said to be born of Native American or Scottish traditions of using war cries in battle, the rebel yell is thought to have perhaps differed between regiments, and has been described in literature as being a very intimidating, primal sound, variously said to sound like wolf howls, a screaming cougar or rabbit, an Indian whoop, and a banshee wail. No matter which description actually fits, one thing that is made very clear in accounts by soldiers of the era is that it was absolutely terrifying, with one account from a Union soldier saying that it created, “a peculiar corkscrew sensation that went up your spine when you heard it. If you claim you heard it and weren’t scared that means you never heard it.” The thing is that as there were no recordings from the actual war it was long a mystery as to what the rebel yell actually sounded like, and it was mostly all just speculation and imagination based on oral and written accounts. It was not until rather recently that some old recordings of the sound of the rebel yell would be uncovered, in the form of some archived footage from the 1930s. Although of course these were not actual recordings from the actual Civil War itself, they were from real surviving veterans of the war, and so are likely a close approximation of what the yell probably really sounded like. Civil War Confederate soldiers One of the pieces of footage was from an old newsreel showing an event for the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, in which a few elderly veterans got together and reenacted the rebel yell, which sounds like a high pitched “Wa-woo-woohoo” sound. Another recording was made in 1935 of a 90-year-old veteran attempting the yell, and yet another from the 30s is a short film found in the archives of The Library of Congress that shows around a dozen veterans performing it. Although the rebel yell in these recordings is probably not as fierce or potent as it would be produced by these men in their youth, and it would have certainly been more intimidating and chilling when unleashed by hundreds of furious bloodthirsty soldiers, it is still an intriguing piece of history that may very well have been lost to time if these recordings had not been made and rediscovered. You can see footage featuring the rebel yell here . In more recent times there have been some audio recordings that are perhaps even more mysterious in nature. On May 18, 1969, the United States launched the Apollo 10 space mission to send a manned spacecraft into orbit around the moon in what was meant to be sort of a rehearsal for the Apollo 11 moon landing that would follow 2 months later. The mission was a complete success, and would pave the way for one of the most incredible, groundbreaking feats in mankind’s history. What many people may not know is that the astronauts on the mission had a very peculiar experience as they hurtled through the black of space out on the dark side of the moon. It was here that the experienced men heard something that took them quite by surprise and baffled all those aboard. They began to hear strange, unearthly radio transmissions coming through their headsets that sounded musical and which “outer space-type music.” The strangest part of it was that the spacecraft was on the far side of the moon at the time, in a location that should have put them out of all radio contact with Earth for about an hour, yet here was this otherworldly, eerie music coming from seemingly nowhere. Apollo 10 There is also the fact that these were seasoned, well-trained astronauts who well knew the kind of sounds that they could expect to hear out there, and this was not one of them. It was all so bizarre that the astronauts debated whether they should even report it or not, and the phenomenon went on for an entire hour, right up to when radio contact with Earth resumed, leaving the crew dumbfounded and wondering what it could have possibly been. Apollo 15 command module pilot Al Worden would later muse on the strange incident, saying: If you’re behind the moon and hear some weird noise on your radio, and you know you’re blocked from the Earth, then what could you possibly think? We’d had a lot of incidents where guys who flew in space saw and heard things that they didn’t recognize, and you wonder about all of that. For years no one had any idea that this had happened at all, except the astronauts themselves, and the mission transcripts and audio recordings from the mission were labelled as classified material, but many of these have since been declassified, and have been made public. As to what it is, NASA itself vaguely claims that it was just some sort of interference, but by others it has been called everything from a new space phenomenon to alien transmissions. Interestingly, the astronauts who had been on the mission have since downplayed the whole incident, saying that they thought nothing of it. This seems odd considering at the time they had obviously been quite puzzled and excited about it all, leading one to wonder if perhaps they were told to play it down and sweep it under the carpet. Just what did those astronauts hear out there alone in the depths of space? You can see a news clip about the phenomenon and listen to the spooky space music here and decide for yourself. Speaking of odd conspiracies, in late 2016, U.S. and Canadian diplomatic personnel in Cuba began complaining of various mysterious symptoms including nausea, dizziness, exhaustion, trouble balancing, and in some cases hospitalized with more severe injuries such as hearing loss, nerve damage, concussions, and brain trauma. Nearly 30 people would be afflicted, and in many cases the victims reported being assaulted by various jarring, anomalous sounds, such as a high pitched, keening noise, blaring music, a “mass of crickets,” or something akin to grinding metal or the scratch of nails upon a chalkboard, which always seemed to be focused on just one specific location, with the sound stopping if one were to step out of its limited range. In a very few cases, people were beset with the physical symptoms but could not recall having heard anything strange. Considering the reports of these inexplicable audio barrages and the focused locale of these occurrences, it was suspected that some sort of sonic weapon was being deployed, although just how this could be and who could be behind it were unknown. Officials even carried out a thorough search for any such devices that might be capable of such a thing, but came up empty handed. In the meantime, Cuba completely denied that they had anything to do with the mysterious case, and the whole thing has remained an impenetrable conundrum that is still debated. While there are sonic weapons that do exist, they are typically bulky, very noticeable affairs that would be inadequate for such covert attacks, and experts doubt that the sonic weapons that do exist could cause the type of damage reported. One MIT researcher and psychoacoustics expert named Joseph Pompei said in an Associated Press statement on the matter: Brain damage and concussions, it’s not possible. Somebody would have to submerge their head into a pool lined with very powerful ultrasound transducers. So what is going on here? Has someone managed to create a smaller, portable sonic weapon device and deploy it in Cuba? If so, who is behind it and what do they want? The subjects obviously have not died, so if such a weapon is being used then is it just to sow terror and panic? No one has the slightest clue. What we do now know is what the sonic assault sounds like, as the Associated Press has released a recording of what a few of the victims heard and had the presence of mind to record during the unsettling experience. Experts who have analyzed the recordings have stated that the sound contains at least 20 different overlapping frequencies lying within the 7,000 and 8,000 kHz range, making it very curious indeed. You can hear the supposed “sonic attack” here , but be warned that it is an extremely abrasive, unpleasant sound. Ever since we have been able to, we have recorded the sounds of our planet, and in many cases these would be lost to time if we had not done so. Here we have explored historical occasions and oddities long thought lost and more modern mysteries captured on tape for all to hear. These sounds remain with us, perhaps at times haunting us or even frightening, but always fascinating. Perhaps decades, even centuries from now we will still look back on such recordings and allow our imaginations to alight, wondering just what mysteries and oddities our history holds, and these recordings will remain unchanged, inviting discussion and debate, slices of our planet’s heritage immortalized for all time.

Bear enters hunter's cabin, steals two guns - Unexplained Mysteries

Bear enters hunter's cabin, steals two guns Posted on Saturday, 25 November, 2017 | 18 comments The bear is understood to be armed and dangerous. Image Credit: PD - Wiki One brown bear turned the tables on a Russian hunter earlier this month by stealing two of his firearms. The peculiar incident, which took place in the remote Siberian region of Irkutsk, saw the brazen animal waltz in to the cabin while the occupant was out fetching water from a nearby river. "On November 16 he was hunting miles away from the nearest village and decided to stay at a forest cabin," the local interior ministry said in a statement. "He left his belongings in the cabin and went to get some water. On his return, he heard some suspicious sounds and spotted a bear. " Fearing for his life, the hunter fled in to the woods where he remained for several hours. When he eventually returned to the cabin, a bag containing two of his guns had gone missing. Despite an extensive search of the area, he was unable to locate the missing weapons. The bear in question is understood to be in possession of a Vepr carbine and an IZH shotgun.

Weekend 2 Cents: Aliens in Our House -- Rare White Crocodile in Adelaide River -- We Were Abducted More Than Once

Your daily dose of cryptids, unexplained phenomena, eyewitness encounters, paranormal activity, alien beings, UFOs...the best in alternative and cryptozoology news Saturday, November 25, 2017 Weekend 2 Cents: Aliens in Our House -- Rare White Crocodile in Adelaide River -- We Were Abducted More Than Once Aliens in Our House San Antonio, TX - 2017-09-23: It was between 4 am and 4:10 am on September 23rd 2017 when I woke up and went to the restroom. I frequent the restroom many times each night because of a medical problem that causes me to be a very light sleeper. I live with my two disabled parents and since noises easily wake and disturb them I have become very adapt to visiting the restroom in the middle of the night while being as very quiet as possible. The restroom is located down a thirty foot hallway and the hallway goes straight from my bedroom door directly to the restroom door. On one side of the hallway there are two other bedrooms and on the other side of the hallway is the living room and the kitchen. The living room has a doorway accessing the kitchen as well as a doorway accessing the hallway right outside my bedroom door. All the lights in the house were turned off except for a small night light in the kitchen which remains on all night for our cat to eat with. I did not notice anything different when I was walking to the restroom except one thing. I thought I had felt a slight electrical type charge in the atmosphere that made the house feel a little different, it did not feel like our house usually feels. I was in the restroom for maybe three or four minutes before I was ready to go back to my bedroom. I turned off the restroom light and as I was getting ready to turn the doorknob to exit the restroom when I heard sounds that I misidentified. At first I thought I was hearing my cat's claws clicking on the kitchen floor as he was walking across it, which is a usual sound in the middle of the night because he eats his meals every night between 3 am and 5 am I quietly turned the doorknob and exited the restroom. I was then standing in the hallway closing the restroom door behind me very quietly like I always do. The sound I misidentified seemed to be getting closer but i didn't think anything about it. I took one step forward toward my bedroom and I looked to my right. I thought I was going to be looking at my cat in the kitchen. I saw an alien about six feet away turning to look at me from the kitchen. I froze in mid stride and I looked at it for about five seconds while it was staring back at me. It was a short grey alien between three and four feet tall with a large head that had big black slanted eyes, no ears, a stubby nose and a small mouth. It's arms were long in proportion to its body. It was being backlit by the night light and appeared to be a off white grayish color While I was looking at the alien it began making soft clicking noises with its small mouth. I was standing there trying to figure out what to do. I began feeling more electricity in the air and I was trying to figure out if what I was looking at was real. A feeling of ease came over me and inside my head I heard a voice say to me that there was 'no danger, this might not be real'. Being confused and scared I wanted to believe the voice in my head because I wanted to get away. I raised my right hand to see what would happen and the alien raised its right hand back at me. I started walking down the hallway toward my bedroom and I couldn't stop thinking about going back to sleep. I got halfway down the hallway to my bedroom door and I remember thinking 'what if there's more than one of those in the house'. I stopped in front of my bedroom door so I could open it. As I was reaching out to grab the knob on the door I looked into the living room. About four feet away from me, standing in the doorway to the kitchen, was a tall alien that was facing towards me and was looking directly at me. It was basically like the short grey alien except it's torso was much longer making it about six to six and a half feet tall. I heard a calm and soft voice in my head saying, 'its ok just go back to sleep now'. I raised my right hand and moved it like I was waving. The alien raised its right hand and waved back just like the short alien had done. By this time I was feeling a strong buzzing sensation all over my body. I remember hearing some more soft clicking sounds coming from the tall alien. I was overcome with an impulse I couldn't resist that made me reach out and open my bedroom door. I walked into my bedroom and closed the door behind me. I got into bed and fell asleep as though nothing had ever happened. - MUFON Rare White Crocodile in Adelaide River A white crocodile spotted in the top end has stolen the attention of tourists and experts alike. The white croc, nicknamed ‘Pearl’, was seen in the Adelaide River by staff and tourists on the Spectacular Jumping Crocodile Cruise on Sunday. A photo of the crocodile was posted to Facebook by the NT Crocodile Conservation & Protection Society which speculated that Pearl could be the child of Michael Jackson – a famous white-headed crocodile from the Adelaide River.“Pearl is a extremely rare croc especially given her size. Most crocs with this colouring do not survive long in the wild,” the Facebook post stated.“Pearl has particularly touched our hearts as it is highly likely she is the offspring of Michael Jackson.” Read more at White croc spotted on tourist cruise in the top end We Were Abducted More Than Once Spokane, WA - 2007-03-30: I woke up as I was running on a ship. It had like indoor-outdoor carpet, like a plastic kinda but not plastic. The ship was dull metal color inside it with beige light floor. Had 2 hallways in circular patterns with entry ways to next hall - no doors. Center circle had rooms facing out then hallway doors on both sides of circular hallway. Entryway next to hallway had doors, only outside of circular hallway. I was running to the right. Lights lined the top if the halls like one long light. Really bright inside the hallway suddenly ended and the was a entry on my left. I ran through it. A feminine being was coming from my right. I was going through entry way almost ran into it. I'm 5'5 female. It came only to my breasts about 4 ft. I heard her feminine voice in my head she said 'oh you startled me.' I was in shock, stood there for a few seconds turned around and ran towards my significant other. I could hear him calling me in my head. I ran to the left passed 2 doors and opened the third on my right. He was laying on a sheet of metal - in the room were several beings. One walked towards me - I blacked out. I could hear them talking about me before I blacked out wondering what was going on. I woke up in my bed at home next to my significant other. He was screaming in my head, we were actually really freaked out and talking with telepathy. We couldn't move our bodies - we were both paralysed and couldn't open our mouths or eyes. We were super scared. Then the phone next to the bed rang and instantly we snapped out of it - both of us. He looked to see who called but the call log was empty. We got up and left our house and went to a motel that was made out of brick because for some reason I thought we'd be safer in a brick building. We were abducted more than once. I know the aliens are not male and females like us - they are masculine and feminine beings. The feminine being wasn't scared at all but I remember being scared if the masculine being that came to me and made me black out.
