One generation ago, a boomerang-shaped object as bright as a city street and as big as a football field appeared in the night skies over southern New York state, drawing such mixed reactions from some 7,200 witnesses that it never turned into the cosmic public event that it really was.
Now, 25 years after the well-documented but not necessarily well-remembered UFO phenomenon put Putnam and Westchester counties on the map as paranormal hot spots, the massive case study that has resulted is elevating the Lower Hudson Valley to the status of one of the three major UFO vortexes in the world.

MOSCOW (Reuters) - A church has vanished from the Russian village where it stood for almost 200 years, the local diocese said Tuesday.

The Church of Christ's Resurrection, in the central Russian village of Komarovo, was built in 1809 but in early October someone took it away brick by brick, Father Vitaly a spokesman for the local Russian Orthodox Church, told Reuters.

PARIS - The fire's survivors were a motley crew: A parrot, a peacock and a baboon. All of them stuffed.
Now, after the devastating blaze, the animals' home, famed Parisian taxidermy store Deyrolle, is rising like a phoenix from the ashes. An auction this week at Christie's Paris will raise funds to help restore the 177-year-old shop to its former glory.

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter provides insights into UFO phenomena
http://www.agoracosm...1/15/02832.html
Special to The Canadian

During his presidential election campaign of 1976, he told reporters:

"It was the darndest thing I've ever seen. It was big, it was very bright, it changed colors and it was about the size of the moon. We watched it for ten minutes, but none of us could figure out what it was. One thing's for sure, I'll never make fun of people who say they've seen unidentified objects in the sky. If I become president, I'll make every piece of information this country has about UFO sightings available to the public and the scientists." Posted Image

A one-eyed San Francisco artist wants to replace her missing eye with a Web cam - and tech experts say it's possible.
"I'd always given thought to using cameras to restore sight to the blind," said Dr. William Danz, whose patient, Tanya Vlach, wants the groundbreaking device. "This is a little different, more like James Bond stuff."
Vlach, who lost her eye in a 2005 car accident, wears a realistic acrylic prosthesis, but she's issued a challenge to engineers on her blog: build an "eye cam" for her prosthesis that can dilate with changes of light and allow her to blink to control its zoom, focus, and on/off switch.

Experiments with insects are an easy way for teachers across the country to get students involved in hands-on science, which is the goal of sending these two spiders, and some butterflies, into orbit on the latest shuttle mission to the space station. Spider One, on view in his box with clear windows, was busy spinning a very tangled web, but Spider Two appears to be AWOL. Or is he?

Flight director Ginger Kerrick says they are looking for him. "The way it was explained to me is that he is a backup spider and he has his own contained space on board and he had moved out of that area. We think he came out of his bedroom and is in the living room of his house." :blink:

See Geoff? It IS true that there's a spider every 8 feet or so from you. Even in space. Where no one can hear your screams.

Weirdest thing I have read in a while;

Driver convicted for penis in pasta jar

By staff writers
NEWS.com.au
November 19, 2008 05:20pm

Man led police on slow car chase

Police thought he might have weapon

Found him with his "genitals in a jar"

A MAN caught by police with his penis inside a pasta sauce jar was still pleasuring himself while resisting arrest, a court has been told.

Police drew their weapons after New South Wales man Keith Roy Weatherley, 46, led them on a brief, slow-speed car chase, the Newcastle Herald reports.

Weatherley attracted police attention while he was parked in a no-stopping zone near Nobby's Beach on October 26, Newcastle Local Court was told yesterday.

Police thought he might have a weapon because they saw him doing something with his hands in his lap, the Herald said.

Instead, they found him partially clothed with his genitals in a jar, a police statement said.

That's when the pursuit began, the court was told.

When Weatherley was stopped, he refused to leave his car and four officers used batons and capsicum spray to get him out.

They found a 750mm jar around his penis and said Weatherley attempted to continue "pleasuring himself in between bouts of wrestling".

A search of his car uncovered pornography, a homemade sex aid, women's stockings and a Jack Russell terrier.

Weatherley pleaded guilty to offensive behaviour, resisting police and disobeying a police direction.

He was convicted and fined $600

I see no mention of 'cruelty to animals.....
