Strong westerly winds have churned up a foamy storm and is causing havoc or residents of Cleveleys, a popular Lancashire tourist spot near Blackpool. 90mph winds blew foam up to 3 feet deep in places – but the foam is far from fun, as it’s oily and stains cloths and even cars! IT looks like […]
The island – essentially lava that cooled after breaking through the water’s surface – began forming this month (December 2011) between Yemen and Eritrea among the Zubair archipelago, a group of small islands that come from a submarine shield volcano.
The giant Gamburtsev Mountain Range discovered in the 1950s below the Antarctic ice, is now believed to have been formed over a billion year ago!
Scientists say they can now explain the existence of what are perhaps Earth’s most extraordinary mountains – the Gamburtsevs are the size of the European Alps and yet they are totally buried beneath the Antarctic ice.
This CCTV video is unbelievable!
A man out jogging gets struck not once, but twice by lightning. Bizarrely he just gets up and walks off! The chances of getting struck once are slim, but twice in crazy!
Shortly before the apparent freak accident a walker carrying an umbrella and a jogger had passed through the street unscathed.
I find it very difficult to call any footage of the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami ‘best’, particularly because of the huge loss of life and continuing chaos the Japanese people are going through — but it has to be said, there are some truly remarkable videos of the earthquake and the following tsunami.
Below are 3 video compilations of some of the ‘best’ footage — a lot of which I have not seen on UK television. I don’t really know why we keep seeing the same footage, at times the media see to trivialise the news with their repetitiveness of some videos.
North-central Arkansas has been rattled with a number of small earthquakes in the past several days, including two that registered 3.5 and 3.8 and some officials and residents wonder if there is any relation to natural gas injection wells.

This is cool — tiny dinoflagellates produce a ripple of sparkling light when something brushes past. The dinoflagellates are a large group of flagellate protists. Most are marine plankton, but they are also found in fresh water habitats as well. Their populations are distributed depending on temperature, salinity, or depth. About half of all dinoflagellates […]
What created this strange sound, recorded in the Pacific Ocean in 1997? The image below is a visual representation of a loud and unusual sound, dubbed the Bloop, captured by deep sea microphones in 1997. In the graph, time is shown on the horizontal axis, deep pitch is shown on the vertical axis, and brightness […]
August was a fantastic month for Cryptoworld, with over 20,000 unique (new) visitors and almost 800,000 hits! Unfortunately hits aren’t really a true indication of the amount of visitors to a site, but it would be great if we can top the 1 million mark before the end of the year! Anyway – the top […]
Given away by strange, crop circle-like formations seen from the air, a huge prehistoric ceremonial complex discovered in southern England has taken archaeologists by surprise. A thousand years older than nearby Stonehenge, the site includes the remains of wooden temples and two massive, 6,000-year-old tombs that are among “Britain’s first architecture,” according to archaeologist Helen […]
An ice bridge linking a shelf of ice the size of Jamaica to an island in Antarctica has snapped. Scientists suggest the collapse could mean that the Wilkins Ice Shelf is on the brink of breaking away, and that it provides evidence of global warming. The shelf has been retreating since the 1990s, but scientists […]
Talk about hype and conspiracy theory! At some point yesterday I received an email saying Atlantis had been found on Google Earth! Unbelievable I thought as I rushed to launch Google Earth and enter the coordinates 31 15’15.53N 24 15’30.53W – to my surprise it indeed did look like a road or street system on […]
Man, everything changes so quickly. I have been in France and Italy for the last two months with my girlfriend, travelling and exploring a part of the world that is right on our doorstep (I live in the UK just in case you didn’t know), yet for some reason we rarely visit. We had planed […]
The mysterious sand circles found on the banks of the Rio Grande have turned out to be created by a local artist, and not the work of Aliens! The work of art, called “Inner Sanctum”, was crafted by Michael Alford who said “Art is a mystery, but this mystery is man-made, not alien-made,”. On hearing […]
