    Nasa Says Flash Over Kyiv Was Not Its Satellite

    A Story About The Earthquake In Tangshan And Mao Zedong

    This story is one of the most strange case in China. On the 28 July, 1976, a severe earthquake occurred in Tangshan. As this city was almost destroyed, more than one million people were waiting for help. To do this, armies around Tangshan were assembled to send food, medicine and other sources...

    Watch The Australian Army Use Telepathy To Control Robot Dogs

    Secret Fortean Weapons & Modern Wars

    I really couldn't think of a succinct title to encapsulate what i wanted to start a random ramble about. But in essence ..do the realities of international conflicts in the last 30 years effectively undermine claims of super secret (usually US) capabilities of a fortean nature? Even as...

    War Wagons Of The Old West

    I've seen a plot point in many an old flick or tv show, positing the creation of an armored wagon of some kind, from just armored to full on tanks. This image from 1967's The War Wagon gives you a good idea of what I'm taking about - steel covered wagons with slots for machine guns from the...

    66 Years Ago, A B-25 Bomber Mysteriously Vanished In A Pennsylvania River

    More than 60 years ago, the Monongahela River pulled off a vanishing trick that sure makes Harry Houdini’s stunts look like child’s play. In January 1956, a U.S. Air Force B-25 bomber made an emergency landing in the river, which passes through Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania... then promptly...

    Harmful Poltergeists?

    Most of the reading I've done on Poltergeist phenomena would seem to suggest that they fall into Colin Wilson's definition of them as "entities of relatively low intelligence possessing the same sort of humour found in adolescent boys" (paraphrased from memory) So are there any instances of...

    Camouflage

    Something that never fails to amaze me is the vast and frequently-contradictory designs of camouflage seen woven or printed into the uniforms of the world's armed forces. Whilst the logic in a leap from red to khaki is inarguably-sound, it seems there has been from then onwards an...

    Battle Of Ramree Island
