"Heartbroken" Limerick Man Opens Up About Ex-Ghost Girlfriend Who Took His Virginity - RSVPLive
Sun, 19 Jan 2020 16:27:40 GMT
Breaking straight from the Emerald Isle, Megan Martin has our staff scratching their heads with her editor's choice of headline. So Rob Mac's former phantom lover is no longer a ghost? And if she took his virginity, how come he didn't file a report with the local garda in hopes of getting it back? Funloving nonsense aside, Megan shares Rob's k-razy tale of a sensous spook who went full poltergeist. So much for letting go? Keeping with this theme, Jocelyne LeBlank heard about a persistent piece of Disney/Pixar plastic proves problematic for a Texas family. A Haunted "Frozen" Doll Keeps Returning After Owners Keep Throwing It Out, and how mom watched the toy get carted away, only to return the very next day. While the Goldfield Hotel may not be a Barbieâ„¢ Dream Homeâ„¢ where Elsaâ„¢ and Barbieâ„¢ can, or want to, chill, George Knappâ„¢ reports how Goldfield Ghost Story Describes A Bad Situation That's Now Worse.

The Problems With Modern Physics - Space.com
Sun, 19 Jan 2020 16:27:39 GMT
How could there be any problems with physics? After all, physics is science and science is a tool which helps people know everything!!11 Despite our self-declared enlightenment and euphoria, some mysteries of the universe defy the will of Sagan, Tyson, Dawkins, and Hawking to reveal their secrets. Kudos to Paul Sutter for collecting just a few to illustrate how the three certainties of life are death, taxes, and job security in academia and science. From our ever-growing "far out" file, Frank Tavares breathlessly announces Future Homes On The Moon And Mars Could Be Made Of Fungi. If you haven't been redpilled by Paul Stamets yet, Frank reveals recent developments in the field of mycoculture eliminating the need to haul construction materials 140 million miles / 225 million kilometers. Meanwhile this here anomalist has mixed feelings the admonition "No, Joe Rogan, Jesus Was Not A Psychedelic Mushroom". On one hand, when you're an unrepentant stoner everything looks like it came from entheogens. On the other hand, Hans Fiene feels obliged to nitpick someone nobody really takes seriously in the real world. Perhaps if Hans turned on, tuned in, and dropped out, it might do wonders for the arthropod currently dwelling within his fundament? (CS)

"Grand Warlock" Of Mexico Issues Forecast For 2020 - Coast2Coast AM
Sun, 19 Jan 2020 16:27:38 GMT
Perhaps Antonio Vazquez is the reason why America is spending $24.4 million per mile along the southern border? Heed Binnall the Gray's enumeration of Vazquez's predictions which really aren't all earth-shattering. Hopefully someone will tell Antonio how warlock really oughtn't be proud of being one. Now that we're inextricably mired in 2020, Stan Gordon demonstrates his 20/20 hindsight on how 2019 Was An Epic Year For UFO And Cryptid Encounters In Pennsylvania in a fun, fortean listicle. But just imagine how Malcolm Smith's vision is far keener as he opines 1903 Was A Good Year For Sea Serpents. From British Columbia, Fiji, Scotland, and other wide-ranging locales, the oceans were positively lousy with Nessie-kin. (CS)

Boom Heard, Felt From Chula Vista To Del Mar Was Not An Earthquake, USGS Says - The San Diego Union-Tribune
Sat, 18 Jan 2020 16:30:09 GMT
There's something happening here. What it is, the U.S. Navy and the U.S.G.S aren't exactly making it clear. There was a boom over there and UFOlogists gotta be aware. Why? It happened in the same neighborhood of the Nimitz Tic-Tac Incident, just Andrew Dyer is unclear if the sound's source was offshore in the direction of San Clemente Island or the mainland. About 20 hours away, as the UAP flies, Tim Binnall has his own report on a Monstrous Mystery Boom Rocking The Houston Metropolitan Area. Weird bit is who the public thought to contact first, and how that source fell short in the journalism department. For nostalgia's sake, nearly four years ago Chris Savia gave the skinny on a Jersey Shore Boom Rattling Residents with all sorts of wild hypotheses behind the event. Could they be related? Maybe, but it's fun to ponder the possibilities. (CS)

Colorado Drones Unseen and Unsolved, State Reports - Mystery Wire
Sat, 18 Jan 2020 16:30:08 GMT
The drone swarm conundrum seems no closer to resolution. Greg Haas's article offers a video giving pause about drone dangers, words from F.E. Warren AFB in Wyoming, and a link to The Denver Post's Colorado Public Safety's Search for Mysterious Drones Comes Up Empty. That article, as Greg notes, ascribes the drone flap beginning to November 23rd. Greg also reports the manufacturer with apparently the corner on the drone market is pooh-poohing the whole thing. Mysterious Drones: Theories Continue to Grow About Mystery Drones Seen in Colorado, Wyoming and Nebraska amplifies on a few points, and adds the perspective of a retired western Nebraska meteorologist. Miguel "Red Pill Junkie" Romero seeks to set the current "dronemania" into an historical context with Return of the Airship: Mysterious Drones "Invade" The American Heartland. Included with this article is a KUSA Denver9 tv News interview with a Flight for Life helicopter pilot whose machine had a daytime near miss with something. While the gregarious drones are engaging in nighttime antics, a collision anytime can be deadly. But an even more serious potential danger is posed by the flittering mechanical bugs. As presented in our January 3rd Anomalist review, Tyler Rogoway has for years worried about drone "bad actor" strikes; see A Big and Bizarre Drone Mystery Is Unfolding In Rural Colorado. (WM)

Taxonomania — An Incomplete Catalog of Invented Species, From the Pop-Eyed Frog to the Loch Ness Monster - The MIT Pre...
Sat, 18 Jan 2020 16:30:07 GMT
Cryptozoology is a joke to Michael Ohl, and for scientists who enjoy pranking each other fake animals with absurd Linnean taxonomies. After working Nessie and bigfoot into his thesis, Michael takes a turn at the corner of Loren Road and Coleman Street to talk about naming conventions, and how a joke may take on a life of its own in the minds of others. Case in point, Nick Redfern's exposé on Black Cat Spirits Versus The Alien Big Cats which contines beating the drum of how certain cryptids are more paranormal than flesh and blood. Where did they come from? A gruesome, ancient Scottish rite which may have unleashed certain entities upon the moors. No word if such profound cruelty could be the genesis of The Phantom Stalker Of Bill And Dorothy Wacker. A what? Who? Brent Swancer makes it all clear on how a series of break-ins evolved into something far more sinister, and profoundly terrifying to an elderly couple. (CS)

U.S. Navy Celebrates The Black Vault's FOIA Appeal Loss - The Black Vault
Fri, 17 Jan 2020 16:32:28 GMT
John Greenewald isn't happy, and he has a right not to be. The FOIA-master and minder of the Black Vault has a revealing video and discussion of how his recent efforts to pry information out of the Navy have elicited only pushback and internal "light-headed" comment. John has had rather more success with former AATIP (Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program) head (or "minder," or "first-ranking person") Luis Elizondo. The result, at Breaking The Silence, is interesting, and Greenewald expresses some appreciation for Mr. Elizondo answering every question asked that could realistically expect an answer. It's just that the answers are not as definitive as one would wish. Of course, Jason Colavito is completely unhappy with the Greenewald/Elizondo dialogue, as he says Luis Elizondo Gives "The Black Vault" an Unsatisfying, Obfuscating Interview. Jason is his usual caustic self, and while most of his in-text points are valid, avoiding the comments section is recommended. Anthony Bragalia returns to his blog after a sizable hiatus with Religious Fanatics in Government, Believing ET Are Demons, Hinder Official UFO Studies and Oust Manager. Bragalia is inspired partly by the major work done in Nick Redfern's 2010 Final Events and the Secret Government Group on Demonic UFOs and the Afterlife, published by Anomalist Books. Bragalia vows to find out and expose those Fundamentalists in the military and government who destroyed the career of Lue Elizondo's predecessor and may still be working against the best interests of the country in hindering UFO studies.

Ape Canyon’s Bizarre 1924 Bigfoot Attack - Bizarre and Grotesque
Fri, 17 Jan 2020 16:32:27 GMT
A gorge along the side of Mount St. Helens in Washington is home to a strange tale involving five miners and a pack of hairy hominids with a grudge. How much of it is true and how much is the result of imagination is still anyone's guess, but worth checking out is one possible solution put forward in this Interview With Robert Damon Schneck. This next report may also one day be the stuff of both tall tales and legends. Hundreds of Marauding Monkeys Force Villagers to Flee Their Homes in India, entering homes and stealing food right off tables. The whole thing is the stuff of movies, but let’s just hope this time around the humans remain the dominant species. (CM)

The Bizarre UFO Crash at Kecksburg - Mysterious Universe
Fri, 17 Jan 2020 16:32:26 GMT
Brent Swancer offers a raft of stories about iconic or really weird UFO and other cases. First up: the December 9, 1965 coming-to-earth of an object whose identity is still a mystery. The Mysterious Case of the Kinross UFO Incident compares with another treatment of that 1953 tragedy that we've recently read elsewhere. Note: John E.L. Tenney, whom Brent invokes, has much about this particular case, for instance at Avenger Red Files. Five years prior to the Kinross aerial rendezvous, there were Some Eerily Similar Cases of Dogfights with UFOs. Brent's 1948 Fargo North Dakota Gorman case treatment is certainly more factual than that of a certain recent tv series premiere. The Harrowing UFO Encounter of Robert Taylor is a good retelling of what is becoming a better known, yet still just as unexplained, Scottish event. And Brent steps off the precipice into "a deeply odd tale" involving The Nazis, a Mysterious Briefcase, and Demonic Alien Skulls. Wacko hoax or not, the account certainly is entertaining. (WM)

The Strange Radar-Based Saga of the "Ring Angels" - Mysterious Universe
Thu, 16 Jan 2020 16:35:30 GMT
Indefatigable Nick Redfern always seems to bring something new to the ufological party, whether it's a novel wrinkle to a hoary old conundrum, or something we'd not even heard of before. Here it's definitely the latter, and it's rather "for the birds." Follow Nick through to Radar Angels for David Clarke's explanation "why the vast majority of reports of UFOs on radar were made during the 1940s and 1950s." In The UFO Phenomenon: A Close Encounter and a Very Credible Witness Nick gives us an unsolved "classic from decades long gone." And Nick offers a plausible, if nonspecific, identification for another strange aerial event in UFOs & Russia: "He Should Not Ask Questions." (WM)

Australian Man Films Yowie? - Coast to Coast AM
Thu, 16 Jan 2020 16:35:29 GMT
A fellow Down Under may have had an encounter with the country's version of Bigfoot, or he may be a brilliant actor. Either way, the accompanying video does a great job of conveying the mood of someone who has found out they are not alone in the woods. But if you find yourself on the fence regarding the whole Sasquatch/Yeti subject, you’re not alone. Sister of Dyatlov Pass Victim Speaks, and she isn’t even considering the possibility that a murderous Yeti killed her brother and his hiking group. The accompanying link to the BBC documentary on the tragic event will have you wondering who, not what, was responsible for ending those nine lives 60 years ago. (CM)

Was the Venusian Orthon a Nazi Officer? - Farah Yurdozu Official
Thu, 16 Jan 2020 16:35:28 GMT
Two articles that forcefully illustrate how wide is the net that draws ufological interests in with popular philosophies. Most of us are familiar with US government interest in Super-Contactee George Adamski for the latter's purported Communist sympathies. Farah Yurdozu, author of Love in an Alien Purgatory: The Life and Fantastic Art of David Huggins (Anomalist Books) attempts to turn the Adamski narrative just about upside down in this offering. With Getting Serious About Sirius she may go even one better, starting with her initial sentence "Confession: I buy things from aliens." What follows is another wide-ranging and mind-blowing individualized amalgam of interpreted mythological, historical, and symbolic concepts. There are surely things here that people with grounding in archaeology, history, The Tarot and the Old Religion will challenge and, perhaps, find thought-provoking. (WM)

The Science Channel Makes My Night - UFO Conjectures
Thu, 16 Jan 2020 16:35:27 GMT
Rich Reynolds has been turning out a lot of posts lately; here's some with a strong historical element. Rich notes the re-evaluation of Immanuel Velikovsky, whose work most likely is basically flawed. But the treatment it received from Establishment Science was perhaps not as savage as was accorded its author. Rich also discriminates between Science Channel and History UFO offerings. Old Incidents....New Interest? is a flat-out interesting bit of UFO research and lore--we'd not heard some of it previously. We'd vote for Rich publishing his stuff on the Nedelcovic "information." Similarly, Abject Researchability deserves serious thought. Rich distinguishes between "real" UFO research such as he did in the previous Nedelcovic post and Keith Basterfield has been doing over at Unidentified Aerial Phenomena--Scientific Research, and what we mostly get in this internet-dominated world. Rich makes an important offer at the end of this piece. In Self-Defending Machines and the Sonny Desvergers, Stefan Michalak, Robert Taylor UFO Attacks Rich is making a point recently raised by Travis Walton with respect to his 1975 CE-IV experience: “attacks� by UFOs often seem more defensive than aggressive. Whatever one thinks of individual cases, it's a possibility. (WM)

Ex Navy Boss "Stumped" by UFOs - Herald Tribune
Wed, 15 Jan 2020 16:37:37 GMT
Billy Cox posts an article he says is groundbreaking on two major counts. One he explains at the beginning of the piece; the second in his Comments. That one has to do with "getting the Navy's top man to state for the record that we've made no progress in solving the 'AUV' mystery," and makes it very much worth reading. George Knapp's Retired Navy Leader Weighs in on UFO Reports, Need for Defense links to Billy's article and offers some extra information about retired Admiral Gary Roughead. Knapp further notes how Roughead's remarks seemingly contrast with former DoD official Luis Elizondo's claims of "many" UFO/US military events. But a careful reading of Roughead's comments might leave room for the apparent discrepancy. "The truth is out there...but you're still not allowed to see it." So Brandon Spektor subtitles his LiveScience piece Top-Secret UFO Files Could 'Gravely Damage' US National Security if Released, Navy Says. Specktor's summary shows some mainstream news media are continuing to take the subject seriously. Keith Basterfield further updates us on his efforts regarding The DIA, FOIA, and the AATIP/AAWSAP with a look at the Freedom of Information Act request log for the Defense Intelligence Agency. And if nothing else, the current Big UFO Story has now meaningfully spawned a new term from Eric Wargo: see the Tic Tac Gap and follow through for clarification! (WM)

Virgin Mary Statue Spotted ’Crying’ at Church in Mexico - Coast to Coast AM
Wed, 15 Jan 2020 16:37:36 GMT
Every so often we hear of a religious icon exhibiting qualities considered exclusive to living beings. Such an occurrence recently took place in Mexico where a statue of the Blessed Virgin appeared to weep real tears in front of a congregation of mass attendees. No word yet on whether it’s a miracle or a hoax, but it certainly has everyone’s attention. Next is A Mallee Mystery, where we read of a an unexplained, stone throwing "something.� Poltergeist? Or a Yowie perhaps? Whatever or whoever the culprit, they seemed to have decent enough aim. The ghost of a pitcher, perhaps? (CM)

Gray Barker, Albert Bender - "Men in Black" and the Summer of 1954 - Journal of a UFO Investigator
Wed, 15 Jan 2020 16:37:35 GMT
David Halperin writes an effective "promo" for his upcoming book, Intimate Alien: The Hidden Story of the UFO. As is typical, David here has a unique slant. In this case it's upon one of the stranger collaborations of ufological bookmanship, whose unusual qualities we hadn't suspected. The article forcefully reminds that ufology is not just about UFOs--or MIBs in this instance. Curt Collins offers more on "The Murky and Quirky History of UFOs" in The First UFO Documentary: The Flying Saucer Mystery. This first of a two-part series focuses on the 1950 Telenews film, which it presents, as well as a transcript, in their entireties. Credits (especially to Isaac Koi for the transcript) are included at the end of this fascinating piece. The Flying Saucer Mystery and the 1952 UFO Flap shows how the 1952 remake addressed changes in the two intervening years. August C. Roberts, a character in David Halperin's post, figures here as provider of a UFO picture. Again, the film and transcript are reproduced, as well as a link to General Samford's famous July 29, 1952, press conference in the wake of the Washington, D.C., UFO flap. (WM)

What the UK Government Thinks of the "Alien Big Cats" - Mysterious Universe
Tue, 14 Jan 2020 16:38:46 GMT
Well, not very much, it seems. Nick Redfern has been tracing the paw prints of these critters through UK records and find that "a skeptical approach" is taken by the government, so no surprises there. Nick also takes a look back at Scottish Water Monsters Before Nessie and finds that tales of a water-beastie predate the famous 1930s sightings by a few decades. And finally, prepare to roll your eyes at this video claiming to show the moment a ’Ghost’ Trips Worker at Supermarket in Scotland. The store owners, perhaps in an attempt to fend off an injury claim, are laying the blame on a spook called Stacy. Sigh. (LP)

Helen Sharman: 'Aliens Exist and Could be Here on Earth' - BBC News
Tue, 14 Jan 2020 16:38:45 GMT
Sometimes worthy articles are tough to pair thematically, so here's an early 2020 potpourri. Nearly 30 years ago Dr. Helen Sharman became the first Briton to go into space, and she is still incompletely known as the first British woman to do so. In certain ways that's much more surprising than her beliefs that ET life is abundant in the universe and could even be here now. In something reminiscent of an old Bob Newhart tv episode, there's someone running for office in California who claims to have been abducted by aliens. But this is no ordinary citizen: it's Bob Salas, inextricably linked with one of the most dramatic--and troubling--UFO encounters ever. Billy Cox has the story on the co-author of Faded Giant who is Gunning for Second Place strategy for competing in a Congressional District northwest of Los Angeles. Elsewhere, 'Alien Abduction' Filmed by Doorbell Cam wasn't presented as a real ET abduction, thankfully, but it certainly is head-scratching. Maybe the same can be said for Jim Keith's Theory on Roswell: An Atomic Bomb. Nick Redfern has the tale and its possible connection to a conspiracy theory about Keith's untimely death. Speaking of Nick, Roswell, and conspiracies, try Conspiracy, Deception and Revelation: False UFO Memories. This is an excellent cautionary tale about a problem common in ufology--and not helped by supposed "docudramas." (WM)

World’s First ‘Djinn Trapper’ Service Catches Genies in Malaysia - Mystery Wire
Tue, 14 Jan 2020 16:38:44 GMT
You’ve heard the old adage "A fool and his money are soon parted.� Maybe it’s time to revamp it a little, change it up to read "Desperation makes for poor judgement" or "For every frightened person there’s someone to empty their wallet". This report on a Djinn hunter in Malaysia makes us roll our eyes a little- -everyone knows it takes a Witcher to catch a djinn. But this trickster is mild compared to our next one: Palm Reader Allegedly Tricks Woman into Paying $70,000 for ’Demonic Exorcism’. Bad enough for some charlatan to threaten a gullible person with bad luck, but then to draw that person’s child into the mix? Shameful. We’ll see how well that sort of activity goes down in prison.

Jerome Clark and Chris Rutkowski - The Paracast
Tue, 14 Jan 2020 16:38:43 GMT
Two Paracast podcast chats with three long-time researchers on rather differing topics. Jerome Clark literally "wrote the book" on ufology, with his The UFO Encyclopedia now in its third edition, and science educator Chris Rutkowski minds the yearly Canadian UFO Survey. Both have numerous other publications on UFOs, cryptids, and paranormal stuff in general to their credit. Highlights of their discussion with hosts Gene Steinberg and J. Randall Murphy include Jerry explaining "experience anomalies" and the early media antipathy towards UFOs, and discussion of the problems posed by present-day "Contacteeism." Previously the Paracasters welcomed back old friend Bryan Bonner of Colorado's Rocky Mountain Paranormal Research Society. While Bryan is mostly a "ghost-hunter" or "ghost explainer," he says the right things an open-minded skeptic should, and Randall in particular seeks to apply lessons learned in "spirited" research to ufological topics. Important points are made time and again about witness treatment. (WM)
