Watch as a UFO loops its way into Popocatepetl volcano
Over the years, there have been countless sightings of UFOs diving into Mexico's Popocatepetl volcano, especially while it's erupting. Here's a video of the most recent sighting, on May 31.
The footage was shot following Pentecostal mass on Sunday 19th May.
The clip shows a priest explaining something to Pope Francis about the man, who is in a wheelchair, before the Pope becomes serious and places his hands firmly on the man’s head.
While pushing the man down into his chair, the Pontiff recites a prayer and the man opens his mouth while making strange guttural sounds.
Although the process takes less than 15 seconds, the man in the wheelchair appears overwhelmed before the Pope moves on to the next person.
According to an exorcism expert quoted by La Repubblica, “It was a prayer of liberation from evil or even a real exorcism.”
MANCHESTER, ENGLAND—Egypt’s oldest-known iron artifacts are 5,000-year-old tube-shaped beads that were discovered in 1911 in a cemetery at Gerzeh. New analysis of a bead kept at the Manchester Museum with scanning electron microscopy confirms that the metal, which has a high nickel content, came from a meteorite. In addition to the high levels of nickel, the metal exhibits a crystalline structure found only in iron meteorites. The ancient Egyptians formed the bead by hammering a fragment of the iron into a thin plate, which was then bent into a tube shape. “Iron was very strongly associated with royalty and power,” explained Diane Johnson of The Open University.
KIRIBATI, SOUTH PACIFIC—Ric Gillespie, executive director of The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery (TIGHAR), announced that while analyzing sonar data from their search for the wreckage of Amelia Earhart’s lost plane, an anomaly has been found resting beneath 600 feet of water off the coast of Nikumaroro Island. “What initially got our attention is that there is no other sonar return like it in the entire body of data collected. It is truly an anomaly, and when you’re looking for man-made objects against a natural background, anomalies are good,” he said.
Two foreign housekeepers working in Saudi Arabia have been sentenced to 10 years' prison and 1,000 lashes each after being convicted of sorcery. Their employers reported them to the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, the country's religion police, claiming the maids had used magic against their family. Apparently, during a search of the maids' bedrooms, investigators found "talismans and other magic items." While the punishment may sound harsh, the two women, scarily enough, have actually gotten off relatively lightly. Beheadings for practicing witchcraft are not uncommon in Saudi Arabia.
It’s the creepy alternative to a beach cooler.
The state Office of Mental Health is selling a morgue refrigerator from a Manhattan psychiatric ward on eBay — calling it “used” but “in good condition.”
The bizarre ad lists the huge silver appliance, equipped with four doors for body storage, as having “signs of cosmetic wear” but being “fully operational.”
The fridge looks plucked from the set of “Law & Order: SVU.” At 8 feet tall and 6 feet wide, it could fit nearly 2,000 12-ounce cans of beer.
And the weirdest part? People are actually bidding on it.
FOR THAT SPECIAL SOME-BODY: This fridge, which held corpses for the Office of Mental Health, can be yours, as long as you’ve got the cash and a truck to drive it home.
The price was at $202 less than a day after it was posted.
A spokeswoman for the state Office of General Services, which sells unwanted government goodies, admits she’s never seen anyone sell a morgue fridge.
“Every once in a while, we get an unusual item — and this would be that,” said spokeswoman Heather Groll.
"A Catholic priest claims to have performed more than 160,000 exorcisms."
"Now Father Gabriele Amorth wants help from his boss to banish the demons, so he's asking Pope Francis to bestow exorcism privileges to every priest with proper training, The Sunday Times of London reports."
"There's a huge demand," Amorth told the newspaper.
"The 88-year-old Amorth, whom the Times called the church's "leading exorcist," said he performed up to 20 exorcisms a day at his peak but has cut back to four a day. The priest said he was inspired to seek the pope's ear when he viewed the pontiff's alleged exorcism of a child after a recent Mass in St. Peter's Square."
I find this slightly hard to believe. Where did he find the time to do all these? Was he performing exorcisms from the shower and while he was sitting on the toilet?
WITCHES, druids and bards are descending in England for their annual conference Saturday.
Pick up tips on spell-making, or get a new fairy house at the event on Saturday, when the Wessex branch of the Pagan Federation meets at Lansdown Hall.
Around 150 pagans from across Gloucestershire, Dorset, Somerset and beyond are expected for the one-day conference.
Speakers include Stroud storyteller and bard Kevan Manwaring and witch Anna Franklin, who will be speaking about herbs and magic and their use in spells.
"Pagans believe in a god and goddess – or a male and female concept – and also the life force of nature and its cycles," explained Jan, who has been a Pagan for more than 30 years.
"Pagans come from all walks of life."
They celebrate the eight festivals of the year, including the summer and winter solstices and the spring and autumn equinoxes
