Petrified locals in the Argentine town of General Guemes are living in fear inside their homes at night after a string of sightings involving a mysterious and highly freaky ‘creature’ resembling a gnome.

 “No joke” : Local teenager Jose Alvarez filmed the “gnome” on his phone when he was hanging with his friends in a poorly lit street in the town. He said that it wears a pointy hat and walks sideways like a crab.

“Suddenly we heard something – a weird noise as if someone was throwing stones,” Mr Alvarez was quoted in London’s Sun Newspaper.

“We looked to one side and saw that the grass was moving.

“To begin with we thought it was a dog but when we saw this gnome-like figure begin to emerge we were really afraid.”

Interestingly, the video cuts as soon as the teens let out a deep shreak when realizing what they are seeing. The report appearing in the Sun newspaper does not stipulate what the teens did in the aftermath.

100 years: The time it took a book to be returned to a library

In Uncategorized on March 12, 2008 at 2:16 am

 

New Scientist magazine wrote last month that 2008 could be “year zero” for the time travell, just maybe they were right. Either that or someone in Finland took the concept of better late than never to an extreme.

Apparently someone, or something, in the city of Vantaa in southern Finland has returned a 1902 borrowed copy of a volume of a religious monthly called Vartija, an article that had been on loan for at least 100 years, reports.

“We are unclear when exactly it was borrowed and who returned it. There weren’t any documents with it,” librarian Minna Saastamoinen told Reuters.

“There is an old note attached to the book which says there is a fine of 10 pennies a week for late returns,” she added.

The library sticker inside the cover, and the old-fashioned handwriting on it, showed the book was last officially loaned out at the beginning of the last century, she said.

Finland is known for a comprehensive library network with more than 900 libraries for its 5.3 million inhabitants. In 2006, each Finn on average visited a library 11 times and borrowed nearly 20 books.

The periodical was borrowed such a long time ago that the Korso branch of the Vantaa library, where the tome was finally handed in, did not even exist when the book was borrowed.

Only in Finland.

WMD found in Iraq!

A Weapon of Mass Destruction has been found in Iraq, its fukin Chuck Norris, that’s what.

The fly kicking superstar of Walker Texas Ranger and Missing in Action and intended Mike Huckabee US Secretary of Defence has become a icon of the Iraq War for US service men and women.

With a lack of desire for bad news from the Iraq conflict by the American public, our friends at Reuters news decided to visit a cardboard shrine for Chuck at a helicopter landing base.

The actor has visited Iraq several times and was made an honorary Marine last year. Some 20 U.S. military personnel and support staff spoken to by Reuters could recite at least one Norris “fact”, despite many having not visited the Web site.

U.S. troops in Iraq say his support for them and Norris’ invincible image has made him their idol and insist the exaggerated and satirical claims are not meant to mock him.

“The jokes all add to his legend. They’re not derogatory. He’s an icon,” said Sergeant Joe Lindsay at a base in Falluja in Iraq’s Western Anbar province, which Norris has visited.

AN IRAQI NORRIS

Bearded and muscled, Norris shot to fame fighting kung fu legend Bruce Lee in the 1972 film The Way of the Dragon, and later films show him devastating groups of men with one kick.

“Norris visited Iraq when violence was its worst and other celebrities were skittish. He’s one of the guys,” U.S. military public affairs officer Specialist Mark Braden said in Baghdad.

“The Marines love him. He’s like a mythical legend,” Staff Sergeant Amy Forsythe in Falluja said.
