PERRYOPOLIS, Pa. (AP) — Celebrate your purchase of this lovely four-bedroom Victorian with some fava beans and a nice Chianti. The house that was used as the home of psychotic killer Buffalo Bill in the 1991 film “The Silence of the Lambs” is up for sale. The production crew took six weeks to turn the 3-story house into the squalid home of the killer played by Ted Levine.

Underground Amusement Park In Transylvania

What does one do with a defunct salt mine dating back to the middle ages? Build an amusement park in it, apparently. At least, that’s the concept behind Salina Turda, a museum and tourist attraction located in the Transylvania region of Romania and built into what began as a salt mine in the year 1075. As a mine, the Salina Turda was fully operational for several centuries until 1932, after which it was used to store cheeses (which seems weirdly perfect). Then, in 1992, the man-made cavern was converted into a subterranean amusement park complete with fairground classics like mini...


Humanoid UFO Captured On Three Cameras

A video shot in early August of 2015 which appears to show a human like figure (or humanoid) flying in the skies above Los Angeles and it has gone viral. The sight was captured by not one, but three different cameras as a part of a UFO Channel research group’s event. In the three videos you can see the same sequence. The UFO was recorded at the same time but through different angles. Video quality varies from each camera and it appears to be real and not cgi. And maybe a humanoid sky anomaly that appeared to everyone at sequoia...

Fire Rainbows – Rare Cloud Phenomenon

A rare “fire rainbow” appeared in the sky over South Carolina on Sunday evening. Social media eagerly shared images of the fire rainbow, which appeared in wispy clouds over Isle of Palms, S.C. Some people on Twitter said the rainbow looked like angel’s wings, while others likened it to a whale tale. For a fire rainbow to appear, the sun must be at an altitude of at least 58 degrees above the horizon. In order to produce the rainbow colors, the sun’s rays must enter the ice crystals at a precise angle to give the prism effect of the color...
