Judge: Oklahoma Has One Month to Remove Monument Officials have been given an ultimatum to remove a towering religious monument from the Oklahoma State Capitol grounds. District Court Judge Thomas Prince issued the order this Friday, giving Capitol officials until October 12th to remove the monolith, featuring the inscription of the Biblical 10 Commandments alongside esoteric symbols and upside-down American flags.

Financial Collapse Coming Sun. 9/13/15?

Is Another Financial Collapse Coming? A Phd. economist is aligning his views with biblical prophecy known as a Shemitah, which is going to occur this Sunday, September 13, 2015 and it predicts that an economic downturn or crisis is inevitable.  It has been occurring in recent history every 7 years, according to the religious minister and author Jonathan Cahn. In an interview with Perpetual Assets, Phd Economist Jim Willie says:  “The odds of the Shemitah cycle being random is 61.8 Billion to one, according to my math.  I believe the the crisis in 2015 is going to be worse than the Lehman Brothers...

‘Pinky’ The Dolphin Returns To Louisiana

‘Pinky’ The Dolphin Returns To Louisiana The story began back in 2007 when Captain Erik Rue of Calcasieu Charter Service first spotted the mysterious pink bottle-nose dolphin, they affectionately named “Pinky”, while out fishing on his boat.  At first thought to be none other than an albino dolphin, experts now believe the unique coloring to be a result of a genetic mutation, causing the her to be 100% pink.  Rue says back in 2007 the pink dolphin was always seen swimming alongside its mother, but now, nearly a decade later and with her return, she swims alone the majority of the time, and...

Study Suggests Octopuses Might Be ‘alien’

  Study Suggests Octopuses might be ‘Alien’ Have you ever looked at an octopus and thought that it appeared alien? Well, you may not be too far off. A few scientists are now suggesting that the eight-legged sea creatures may, in fact, be from out of this world. We’ve long known that the octopus is among the most intelligent and behaviorally flexible of all invertebrates, even showing sophisticated problem-solving skills and the ability to use tools such as discarded ocean floor shells to perform tasks. With four pairs of arms dangling below a large head, leering eyes, incredible dexterity, and...

‘Medical Cat’ Cares for Patients

‘Medical Cat’ Cares for Patients (Bydgoszcz, Poland) Perhaps as a gesture of gratitude, a small black cat has volunteered to nurse sick and recovering animals in a Polish veterinary hospital. It was only a year ago that Radamenes, the Medical Cat, was a patient at the Bydgoszcz clinic. The stray was taken to the hospital in such bad condition that few believed he had a chance to survive, but caring veterinary doctors refused to give up. After long weeks of medical attention, the affectionate black pussycat responded to their care with a full recovery. The staff, by then attached to...

Bumblebees Self-Medicate In The Wild?

Bumblebees Self-Medicate In The Wild? The rain.  Pestilence of crops.  Fly-swatters.  Bees have many natural enemies.  Along with the alarming numbers of mass die offs and their contribution to the food economy the world over bees also have small, sometimes microscopic foes.  New evidence suggests that bumblebees use a variety of wild plants from Turtlehead, also known as balmony, and Nicotine. Known as zoopharmacognosy (literally “animal-drug-knowing”), the most common examples involve parrots eating clay to absorb toxins in the gut or dogs eating grass to make themselves sick.  Earlier this year after observing a reduction in intestinal parasites among certain bumblebees who sought...

Mount Denali Just Shrunk 10 Feet

Mount Denali Just Shrunk 10 Feet Alaska’s Denali National Park, and the former Mt. McKinley, has been under intense scrutiny as of late and a new study is showing that the nation’s highest peak doesn’t have a pair of feet, or ten to be exact, to stand on. The numbers are in, and neither is it the result of tectonic plates shifting nor sabotage, but rather advances in technology have allowed us to better measure the elevation at the surface of the Earth, resulting in a more accurate summit height of Alaska’s natural treasure from 20,320 to 20,310.  Denali National Park was...

Alleged ‘Pterosaur’ Captured on Film

‘Pterosaur’ Allegedly Spotted in America (Boise, Idaho) Footage has surfaced on Youtube citing what an Idaho resident claims could be the return of an extinct dinosaur species. The object in the video dubbed a ‘Pterosaur’, depicts a brownish winged creature appearing to fly low above the trees, perhaps ‘stalking its next victim for lunch’. Watch Numerous critics on Youtube have dismissed this one as  a hoax, as the winged prehistoric creature might have had feathers, among other inconsistencies indicating that this is either a drone or a trick of special fx. Still, some cryptid enthusiasts have cited other accounts of an alleged ‘pterosaur’ presence in the United...

Chaos Unfolds in Spain Floods

Another, yes another, powerful storm has now caused severe flooding in several Spanish towns, washing trucks and cars down along their tight streets. Still reeling from the hailstorm last week, which we earlier reported on, the small town of Adra, in the Almeria province of Andalusia in southern Spain is picking up the pieces after a massive flood ripped through its streets.  With over half a meter of water fallen in some places, at least 30 people trapped in their vehicles needed rescuing. But this wasn’t the only Spanish town to see devastation.  More than 300 emergency calls were made across Malaga,...

Multiple Hospitalized Following Homeopathic Conference

Homeopathic Conference Attendees “Suffered Multiple Overdose” (Germany) Police in Handeloh are saying that 29 women and men who attended a Homeopathic Conference last Friday may have overdosed on the hallucinogenic drug 2C-E, an illegal substance which saw dozens reportedly hospitalized. Individuals were “staggering around, rolling in a meadow, talking gibberish, suffering severe cramps, and having convulsions,” according to one local reporter. 2C-E, also known as ‘aquarust’ belonging to the phenethylamine-family of substances has been banned in Germany since 2014 for its pharmacodynamic properties which mimic LSD. So far no one knows whether or not the hospitalized conference attendees partook of the substance intentionally or accidentally,...
