Abandoned Island in the Middle of NYC

In the densely populated areas of New York city, one would never expect to find a tranquil albeit creepy sanctuary with a population of zero. Once populated, complete with a hospital, tennis courts, utilities, every modern comfort. This area is now completely abandoned. How could there be anything, especially an island, that is completely abandoned? The island is called North Brother Island and is located between Queens and the Bronx. One reddit user came across the island when kayaking with a friend in 2012 from Connecticut to New York. The pictures he took of the abandoned island near New York...

Hitchhiking robot’s cross-country trip in US ends in Philly

A hitchhiking robot that captured the hearts of fans worldwide met its demise in the U.S. The Canadian researchers who created hitchBOT as a social experiment said someone in Philadelphia damaged the robot beyond repair early Saturday, ending its first American tour after about two weeks. “Sadly, sadly it’s come to an end,” said Frauke Zeller, one of its co-creators. The kid-size robot set out to travel cross-country after successfully hitchhiking across Canada in 26 days last year and parts of Europe. It’s immobile on its own, relying on the kindness of strangers. Those who picked it up often passed...

Social media was subsequently bombarded with pictures, videos and...

Caught on camera – Exorcism at Texas park

TEXAS (CNN) — Witnesses say three people were performing an exorcism in a public park in Texas Thursday morning. “They start getting louder and louder and louder, she was on the ground and they were standing over her with hands on her and screaming ‘Satan, I demand that you depart’ and it went on and on and on, but it was very bizarre!” one witness said. The witness says her day usually starts with a perusal of the Bible and a quick prayer, but today was just a little bit different. Eye witnesses who were at the scene earlier in...

Stealth Bomber in Denver Sky

  KUSA in Denver received many reports of a stealth Bomber flighing in the Denver Skies just prior to the MLS All Star Game.  The aircraft appeared right after the national anthem. KUSA – We got lots of calls and emails from people who saw a different-looking aircraft in the sky Wednesday night. Many of the viewers were in the north metro area – which makes sense, because a stealth bomber flew over Dick’s Sporting Goods Park in Commerce City ahead of the MLS All-Star game — and that’s the aircraft they saw (which means it wasn’t so stealth …)...

NASA’s Golden Record made for alien ears now on SoundCloud

The sounds of Earth. We Earthlings listen to them all the time. A baby cries. A bus rolls by. The wind keens and rain falls.

The phonograph disk itself was 12 inches and made from copper plated in gold. Previously, the tracks on the album were available as individual clips, but NASA this week released them as a whole recording available to listen to on streaming...

Swarms of Grasshoppers Show Up On Radar In Texas!

Weather radar has picked up thousands of insects flying over Knox County, Texas, according to the National Weather Service of Norman, Oklahoma. Rangers at Copper Breaks State Park in Quanah, Texas confirmed that the radar is picking up a large swarm of both grasshoppers and beetles. It is difficult to correlate a specific amount of insects to what the radar is seeing because it depends on the size and proximity of the insects as they fly, says Forrest Mitchell, Observations Program Leader at the National Weather Service of Norman, Oklahoma. They are swarming from the ground up to 2,500 feet, covering...

Muslim Brotherhood Leader: I Have Evidence To Put Obama In Jail

NEW YORK – The son of a jailed Muslim Brotherhood leader in Egypt is claiming his father has evidence that will land President Obama in prison. Many suspect that Barack Obama has engaged in criminal and/or illegal acts, but nothing can be proven. The vexing questions surrounding his birth remain unacknowledged. He’s kept his fingerprints from appearing directly on such scandals as the IRS scandal, the NSA scandal, the Fast & Furious scandal, and the Benghazi scandal. However, a Muslim Brotherhood member is now claiming that he has hard evidence that, if revealed, is sufficient to put Obama in jail....
