It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World

But how did we get to a point where an artificial, electronic life replaced the simple pleasures of existence? Those who can recall a time before the internet will know exactly what I’m talking about. All of those born with a USB port in their skull will be mumbling “huh?” and clicking away from this preamble to the next piece of celebrity gossip…

The Voynich Manuscript

Aside from the unknown text, the manuscript featured plants that could not be identified, astrological symbols and other strange sketches – some geometrical in design, others just downright strange. Without a Rosetta stone of sorts, it was impossible to decipher what the illustrations represented in relation to the text…

Spaceship Phobos

When the Mars Express conducted a fly-by of Phobos in March of this year, it returned clear photos of the moon and detailed radio frequency data that was subsequently released by the aforementioned space agencies. The data and accompanying photos have been independently analysed and seem to suggest not only that Phobos is hollow but also contains a network of geometric structures inside…

Noah, Scouts & Joni

I was never a Scout, mainly because the institution was not prominent in the area in Australia where I grew up. To keep abreast of the changing world, the Boy Scouts of America now have a merit badge for video gaming. Yep, instead of getting those kids to exercise in the fresh air, they’d rather they sit on their asses in air-conditioning and exercise their thumbs…

Lockheed Camo

The photos show the lengths the US Army Corps of Engineers went to during the 1940s to disguise the Lockheed Aircraft Plant in Burbank, California. The amazing pictures clearly show camoflage netting stretched across the massive plant, giving the appearance from the air of a rural community…

Stupidity 2009

Take for instance these two guys from Iowa. They thought it would be a swell idea to break into an apartment, but they couldn’t afford some cheap Wal-Mart balaclavas. So, this brain-dead pair decided to disguise their faces with black permanent marker. Trouble is, they didn’t bother to wash it off afterwards (or couldn’t get it off) and were eventually picked up by police, obviously following a simple witness description of “dudes with black pen on their faces”. They weren’t too hard to find…

A Convenient Truth (Part 2)

Countless inaccuracies and falsehoods have been presented to ‘strengthen’ the warming argument, but a lack of open debate between proponents and ‘deniers’ points simply to one conclusion – a blatant act of deception on the part of those who have much to gain from carbon taxes and the new religion known as “Global Warming”, itself having gained momentum as a profitable avenue in many areas of business…

Billy and the Pleiadians

The entire Billy Meier case seems a fantastic flight of fancy that, on first glance, gives the appearance of being the most elaborate and obvious of hoaxes. Yet, was such a nondescript individual such as Billy, with little education and financial means, able to pull off such a ruse? Lee Elders, who published a book of Billy’s photographs, once stated that no one would ever prove the Meier case to be true, but nor would anyone ever disprove it either. That Billy Meier is the most unlikely of prophets lends credence to the idea that perhaps (just perhaps) the story is true…

V For Violence

As the leaders of the world’s wealthiest nations, financial institution bigwigs and other notaries met in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania last week for the G20 Summit, to discuss what amounts to their direction for the globe, protestors clashed with police and were met with seemingly extreme prejudice. Violence during demonstrations is nothing new, having been a fixture of the American cultural landscape for many decades…

Morning Glory

A few weeks ago, Wired magazine online featured a post by Betsy Mason detailing some weird-ass clouds that appear on my home soil here in Australia. The photo (above) was captured by photographer Mick Petroff near the Gulf of Carpenteria. These strange, tubular clouds can grow to be 600 miles long…
