It wouldn’t be surprising to see a sudden increase in people who believe “other life” exists elsewhere off our precious Earth. According to this CNN Video hosted by Rachel Crane, NASA’s Chief Scientist Dr. Ellen Stofan claims that they’re on the verge of finding other alien life.
It’s no wonder with the discovery of new planets everyday, some that are positioned in what we call the “habitable zone” being about the same distance from their sun as we our to ours. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that life can’t exist outside the habitable zone.
And why wouldn’t there be life elsewhere in the universe? I feel you have to be a very closed-minded individual, not to mention arrogant, to believe that we are alone in the universe. The numbers don’t stack up; the chance is far too great.
Some believe that aliens already live among us. Professionals such as former government UFO expert, Dr. James Kune, believes that there are about 5 million aliens that have been able to blend in with the rest of society. The reason that they’re here is still unknown, but Dr. James Kune claims to “have identified at least 1,000 alien husbands and wives passing themselves off as human” according to a ScienceVibe.Com article.
Now you may find Dr. James Kune’s claim a bit much to comprehend, possibly even believe (but not impossible), Dr. Ellen Stofan believes something a little less threatening. She believes that we’re more likely to find “little green microbes”, rather than “little green men”.
…whatever you want to call it, stories of giants is nothing new. Many claim that some of these “tall tales” may actually be true. That’s right, there’s even evidence to prove it…well there was — I think.
There was supposedly a fake story written by World News Daily Report claiming that the Smithsonian Institute admitted to destroying thousands of giant skeletons in the early 1900’s. However, an article did turn up proving that a “cover-up” may be in play. It states:
Vine Deloria, a Native American author, and professor of law said:
“Modern day archaeology and anthropology have nearly sealed the door on our imaginations, broadly interpreting the North American past as devoid of anything unusual in the way of great cultures characterized by a people of unusual demeanor.
“The great interloper of ancient burial grounds, the nineteenth century Smithsonian Institution, created a one-way portal, through which uncounted bones have been spirited.
“This door and the contents of its vault are virtually sealed off to anyone, but government officials. Among these bones may lay answers not even sought by these officials concerning the deep past.”
So, were there giants or not?
According to the Smithsonian, the skeletons that were recovered in China were anywhere in height between 5’9″ and 6’2″ which are rather tall for humans back then.
There’s a village in China’s Shandong province where archaeologists started excavating a a very old Neolithic settlement in Jiaojia.
Just for comparison, in Europe the average height of Neolithic populations is about 5′4″ to 5’6″. Most people were saddened when this information came out which in turn sparked some negativity about the government run Smithsonian Institute. Smithsonian has been under scrutiny for quite some time for claims of deliberately hiding important discoveries that could alter views from the public when it comes to history, life and the very existence of man on Earth.
That’s fine, a lot of people feel that way. Most of them are non-Christian while the remaining are Christians, however, just believe that Goliath was “probably” just a real tall person. Goliath was human, there’s no doubt to that, it’s just that he was anywhere from 9′–10′ tall.
But before they used to call the land of Gilead the land of the Rephaim; for it was the land of the Rephaim, and the Rephaim were born (there), giants whose height was ten, nine, eight down to seven cubits. [10½ feet to 15 feet tall]
A Greek geographer, Pausanias (ca. A.D. 150) wrote of Roman soldiers diverting the river Orontes in Syria finding a coffin more than 16 feet long with a corpse the size of it inside. The Orontes flows through Mount Hermon in the land of Bashan, where the Rephaim king Og ruled.
Truth is, the discovery of giant skeletons was becoming quite a thing. Then all of a sudden — it just stopped. Just like that. There are claims to be true stories of the Smithsonian Institution involved in a cover-up, also misplacing (losing) the giant skeletons (among other things). However, fake news stories about the Smithsonian destroying thousands of giant skeletons, but that was proven to be a hoax. If this fake news story did anything, it sparked the attention of enthusiasts (conspiracy theorists) to explore the claims where the Smithsonian Institution did admit to losing a few of these valuable and unique specimens.
If you have time to kill, like 30 hours or so, how about giving Six Flags St. Louis in Eureka, Missouri a visit and lay around for 30 hours? That is, if you don’t mind laying in a coffin for 30 hours where you might win $300. Keyword: Might
That’s right. Six Flags St. Louis is offering their guests a chance to get $300 from their creepy and a little disturbing dare. A total of 6 lucky people will be picked to compete in this quite demented challenge. Each participant will be getting their own 2’x7′ coffin that Six Flags St. Louis nonchalantly describe “as slightly used”. All chosen participants must lay in a coffin for 30 hours.
But of course, there are rules! There’s a 6 minute bathroom break each hour. Meals, snacks & drinks are provided (free of charge). A charging station will be available for your phone… so there’s that. But remember, you must lay in the coffin for 30 hours.
What’s all this mean?
It means you could literally watch videos, play games, do a little social media the entire time you’re laying in the coffin.
However, there is a catch (of course).
If there’s a tie among the participants a raffle will be drawn. So again, you could literally lay in a coffin for 30 hours and leave with no money.
Zilch. Zero, Nada.
Oh, a plus to all of this is that if you DO lay in a coffin for 30 hours, you’ll be able to take the coffin with you when you leave, regardless if you win the loot or not.
A skull-like asteroid that only reflects 6% of the Sun’s light, was first discovered on October 10, 2015 and then flew by the Earth on Halloween. Well, now it is coming back for another fly-by visit in early November.
The asteroid has been officially named 2015 TB145, however, NASA has nicknamed this “death comet” THE GREAT PUMPKIN because it flew by on Halloween in 2015.
THE GREAT PUMPKIN asteroid is also called a “death comet” because “it is believed to be dead” (whatever that means?) and because of its peculiar skull shaped form.
This asteroid was picked up by radar from the Puerto Rico observatory Arecibo.
There’s no threat. It is not going to hit the Earth and annihilate millions of people. The closest the THE GREAT PUMPKIN asteroid will come to the Earth is around 24 million miles on this November 11, 2018.
Serena Williams committed three (3) code-violations at the Women’s U.S. Open during her last set against 20-year-old, 20th seed, Naomi Osaka, Japan’s newest super-starlet.
Chair umpire, Carlos Ramos caught Serena Williams’s coach, Patrick Mouratoglou “coaching-from-the-box“. Although Williams claims that either she didn’t see it or that her coach was just giving her a “thumbs-up” sign… or something in that nature — whatever.
Williams snapped at Ramos, shouting that she wasn’t a cheater and that she’d rather lose than cheat. However, Mouratoglou did claim that he was
cheating coaching, but he didn’t admit that until after everything was said and done. He also claims that everybody does it.
It seemed as though Williams was trying to take away the moment from Osaka by claiming that sexism was the reason she lost.
Not just in the United States but this has now become a worldwide problem.
In the US, dog attacks can become vicious. It’s one thing (and very horrible) when a dog attacks a stranger, but it becomes even more alarming when a dog attacks its very owner or another family member.
However, a lot of dog attacks… horrible, vicious and sometimes even fatal dog attacks, are done by feral dogs. Dogs that run the streets, usually in parts of cities where the population is poor and the crime rate is rather high. Towns and suburban cities can and do experience feral dogs, but they’re usually always handled by the town/city themselves or the Animal Control Department located within the county.
It’s best to avoid all dogs that doesn’t seem to have an owner close-by, or even better… avoid all dogs that aren’t on a leash. That’s your safest bet.
Feral dogs are known for being extremely vicious. This aggression is most likely caused by barely surviving through harsh weather where scavenging for food sometimes led to a “fight-to-the-death“. The winner, obviously, got to eat (most of the time for measly scraps) and the loser got killed — or fatally wounded. In a feral dog world, it really is survival of the fittest. Even winning can come with a price — sometimes their lives. Just because they got to eat doesn’t mean they weren’t fatally wounded themselves. It’s a dog-eat-dog world out there.
It’s here to stay, it’s not going anywhere.
Get wise and get familiar with cryptocurrency.
Cryptocurrency is money that exists in a digital or virtual state rather than in physical form. You can’t literally touch cryptocurrency like you can with modern-day currency. It uses cryptography to secure and verify each and every transaction. This is done to control the amount of new units of a particular cryptocurrency being created.
If you read my last post on cryptocurrency, you’ll remember me writing that XRP was at around sixty-three cents per units. Well, it has since dropped to more than half that. In fact, as of right now as I write this XRP is at thirty-one cents. This may have scared off a few people into selling ALL their units but most stuck to their guns (like me) and held on. In fact, I even purchased twice as much as I did the first time around.
XRP wasn’t the only cryptocurrency that got hit, in fact, some cryptocurrencies went belly up. “What happen?” you might wonder. I’ll tell you.
Bitcoin Gold got hacked. Millions of dollars were either lost and/or stolen.
The whole cryptocurrency community was shattered. Some scared off.
Yes, it happens. Not very often, but it happens.
But you know what…?
The way I look at it, banks get robbed too.
If the company, Ripple, goes “out-of-business”, XRP will still be in the cryptocurrency world. I don’t think that’s going to happen, but it’s nice to know.
How do I know?
All it takes is one transaction experience for someone to realize the superiority of XRP over a dinosaur like Bitcoin.
Look into it for yourself, do the research. You will see that XRP isn’t going anywhere.
I also purchased some Dogecoin.
I looked around the cryptocurrency market at CoinMarketCap.Com and checked out the top 30 cryptocurrencies. I decided to start at the bottom and work my way up when I noticed a cryptocurrency well below the #30 spot.
It stuck out, I suppose, so I clicked on it and read up on it.
Okay…I liked it. Let’s move on.
I checked on about another four or five cryptocurrencies, but Dogecoin just kept popping in my mind.
So I went back and read up a little more.
I even watched a video of the creator of Dogecoin, Jackson Palmer, and liked what he had to say. His story reminded me a little bit of how the BEASTIE BOYS got started and their break-through album released on November 15, 1986 by Def Jam, LICENSE TO ILL.
And yes, I’m a Beastie Boy fan so I decided to go for it and purchased as much Dogecoin I could afford.
Gender Dysphoria is a well-known & documented mental illness. To be accurate, it’s considered a mental disorder rather than a mental condition. In more serious cases a person who has gender dysphoria can sometimes have problems keeping a job, feels awkward in social events or could even suffer from extreme anxiety or severe depression.
This is nothing to be ashamed of. Hundreds, upon hundreds, of thousands of people have this condition.
