Mystery Hole found on Mars
Mystery Hole found on Mars

A weird hole on Mars has been discovered — the 35 meter opening is very strange and there doesn’t appear to be a logical explanation. The hole in the middle of a depression (crater) appears to have a opening (cave) about 20 meters deep.

Baltic Sea UFO may be Secret Nazi Weapon
Baltic Sea UFO may be Secret Nazi Weapon

Some say this is starting to turn into a coverup to hide the truth that a crashed UFO has been found in the Baltic sea, but the evidence now seems to suggest the object is a World War II Top-Secret Nazi Weapon, that was perhaps designed to confuse enemy radar. Whether the device was actually used is now clear, but it may have been capable of blocking ship and aircraft radar.

UK UFO Files Released 2012 (Videos)

The new batch of declassified UFO files appear to contain some interesting information. Although there is some obvious hoaxes and miss identifications, the documents suggest that if the UFOs were real, they might be tourists. There is also a suggestion that if a UFO could be captured, then it might be possible to weaponise the technology!

Ghost Hunters raid Iraq Hospital

The dingy corridors and gloomy wards of a long-abandoned Saudi Arabian hospital have drawn hundreds of amateur ghost hunters who believe it to be haunted by jinn, the malevolent spirits of the Koran and Arabian mythology.

Unlike in the Western tradition of ghosts, jinn are not the lost souls of the dead but beings who lead parallel lives to humans, whom they sometimes tempt into sinful ways.

Dead Baby Fox

I found a dead baby fox while walking my dog today. There was an adult fox nearby which I am guessing was its mother. It couldn’t have been very old as it still had its eyes closed, but it had obviously been dead a while as it was completely cold. I’m guessing it’s mother had […]
