Strange Claim: Barack Obama Teleported to Mars in the 1980s

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J
Working on a song about a time traveler’s convention, I found a strange claim that Obama was once teleported to Mars. See the end of this post for my take on how there could be unexpected truth in this bizzare claim. Seattle attorney Andrew Basiago says that when he was a child, he and William […]

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J
This is amazing. Some seeing this video have claimed it is just a rocket launch played in reverse. It is not. This is a real rocket, the Falcon 9’s first stage, doing a controlled landing back on earth. Less than 10 minutes after liftoff today, the Falcon 9 first stage came back for another pinpoint […]

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J
Today’s true strange news post shows what happens if you do not cut or bite your fingernails for more than 20 years. Yikes! Ayanna Williams of Houston in Texas, USA, has been growing her nails for more than 20 years. When Guinness World Records measured them earlier this year, they had a combined total length […]

What I Learned From A Three Legged Sicilian

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J
“If you lived in a world where everyone had one arm, how would you cope with two?” That brilliant quote is attributed to Francesco Lentini, a circus performer billed as the three legged man. Francesco “Frank” Lentini was born in Rosolini, Sicily, Italy. He died in 1966, although his exact age is reported differently in […]

Let’s Talk About Greed

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J
Greed is an intense and selfish desire for something. We primates covet things. We desire, yearn for, crave, want, wish for, long for, hanker after/for, hunger after/for, and thirst for things, at times more than we need. With what metaphorical oranges are you overloading yourself? Clinging to hopes of having things leads us to both […]

Amazing Jet, Is It Real? Not Exactly.

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J
In this impressive video you can see that the aerodynamic properties of this jet are irrelevant in hover mode. The wings are not being used to create lift. From this, it is clear that one could have any shape for a jet powered flying object. But is this what it seems? No. The caption for […]

The Unbeholdable Face of God

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J
Here’s a strange thought: Imagine an alien being with a head that is an endlessly morphing random kaleidoscopic jumble of all humans. It might look somewhat like the strange video below, but with full diversity, now and throughout time. I once imagined the face of the alien who created us as an average of all […]

Real alien on video in car lot?

http://ift.tt/eA8V8J
With so many people carrying video cameras 24/7, this clip is the kind of thing I’d expect to see more of if there were truly aliens among us. Thinking creatively, here’s how I’d hoax this one: film a kid in a suit doing this, then edit and replace his image frame by frame to get […]
