I don’t know if that European heat wave is affecting parts of Scandinavia, but it sounds like the 4th in line to the Norwegian throne is going a little bit….crazy.

Media Reports:

Princess Martha Louise of Norway has claimed that she is a clairvoyant, saying that she realised as a child that she could read people’s inner feelings, and that she owes her ability to make contact with angels to her experiences with horses.

“It was while I was taking care of the horses that I got in contact with the angels,” she says.
“I have lately understood the value of this important gift and I wish to share it with other people, maybe with you.”

The 35-year-old Princess – the daughter of King Harald and Queen Sonja, is a trained physical therapist – and made the claims on a web site for her alternative education centre.

The Norwegian Royal Palace confirmed that the Web site accurately reflected the Princess’s views, but declined further comment.

Sounds like somebody has been spending way too much time in the Royal Palace.

  6th sense or publicity stunt?

UK UFO sightings video: It “reminded me of a scene from Independence Day.”

 I sure hope they come in peace!

For about half an hour on Saturday night a very strange sight occurred in the skies over the English town of Stratford-Upon-Avon, the birth place of William Shakespeare.

People poured onto the streets from pubs, restaurants and houses. Cars driving through the streets pulled over or slowed to a snail pace, as hundreds looked up into the starless night to witness what some observers said was the most extraordinary thing they had ever seen.

What the? The scene from southern England.

 The Daily Mail reports:

Hotel Chef Kern Griffiths, 26, said: “I saw five lights, we all thought they were hot air balloons at first because the glowing spheres looked like a burst of flames. But I couldn’t see any outline of the balloon itself and they were travelling far too fast.

“Suddenly someone shouted ‘look’ and there were these bright dots fizzing across the sky.

“It was weird, they way they moved did look alien. Some people reckon they’re fireworks but they were lit up in the sky for far too long, the local rugby club say they were lanterns that blew loose over the weekend but these objects were far too fast and too high up.

“They were unlike any aircraft I’ve seen. It’s a mystery.”

The British paper quoted a UK military spokesperson who said the phenomena had nothing to do with government activity and that it was not the Ministry of Defence’s role to investigate the sightings.

  “The MoD does not have any expertise or role in respect of UFOs or flying saucer matters or to the question of the existence of extra terrestrial life forms, about which we remain totally open minded.”

Meanwhile Chinese newspaper The Shainghai Daily reported that a audio tape recording of a civilian pilot witnessing a UFO in 1991 had been released.

The recording has been kept by Wu Jialu, former senior engineer with the Shanghai Aircraft Design and Research Institute. He said equipment needed to analyze the report wasn’t available until now.

The following is a transcript of the conversation.

Airport dispatcher (A): 3603, what did you see?

3603: I took off, flying about seven sea miles (13 kilometers) at the Course 28 degrees. I found an unidentified flying object right at my front. It was three meters to five meters in length. It’s red and it looks like it is spraying fire. It’s flying to the northeast. I turned slightly to the north and the object was farther and farther from my plane. It’s moving fast and suddenly it turned around.

I flew about 20 sea miles (37 kilometers). It is moving southeast. It’s flying lower and lower. I turned a little to the west. It turned around suddenly to the north again. It turned black.

It separated into two, one ball on the upper side and one cube below it. The two objects flew northeast for a while and then they turned to the northwest. They climbed up and disappeared. They came out, and disappeared again.

A: I got it.

The truth is out there people!

It’s War, Trade War That Is! As China arrests reporter for ‘fake’ cardboard food story

In 2007, amazing story, Beijing, capitalism, China, Crazy news, Economy, International, law and order, Odd News, Society, stunt, Uncategorized, USA, war, washington, World News on July 20, 2007 at 2:07 am

 

It was a story that made for very interesting headlines around the world (The Crazy News didn’t report it, it sounded a little suss at the time).

A Chinese TV current affairs program ran a story last week that claimed an unlicensed food vendor in Beijing had been selling stuffed dumplings, using not fresh pork like usual but old cardboard with pork flavouring, and selling the food to unsuspecting locals.

But today authorities in the Chinese capitol have detained the China Central TV reporter behind the story, claiming that the journalist story was a fabrication aimed at securing “higher audience ratings”.

The detention of the reporter comes as China experiences a small trading war with countries like the United States, Canada, Japan, Singapore, Panama and Australia.

 A series of tainted food and drug scandals that included poison dog food, toothpaste and drugs that resulted in dead pets and humans in the case of Panama.

China even took the shocking step of executing the former head of the countries food and drug regulator after “taking bribes to approve untested medicine”, a very sick stunt by the Chinese government to say the least.

Then again, you can get executed for pretty much anything in China, undertaking more court-ordered executions than the rest of the world combined.

The detention of the reporter really makes you wonder if the fake story about cardboard in food was actually real, or if the detention was just another stunt to assure us that the slogan ‘made in China’ means quality, yeah right.

In any case we’ll probably never know.

It’s alive! Species of mammal once thought extinct is alive and well.

Oh, yes indeed. How exciting!

It’s not yet official, but a research team visiting the deep jungles of Papua New Guinea believe that an echidna named after British naturalist Sir David Attenborough, thought to no longer exist, is actually still alive, reports the BBC:

The month-long expedition by scientists from the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) involved travelling to parts of the mountain range, covered by thick jungle, which had remained unexplored for more than 45 years.

Jonathan Baillie, ZSL’s Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered (Edge) programme manager, said: “We hope that Sir David Attenborough will be delighted to hear that his namesake species is still surviving in the wilds of the Papaun jungle.”

The creature had not been recorded since a Dutch botanist collected the only known specimen in the cloud forest of the Cyclops Mountains in 1961.

As a result, it was widely assumed that the shoe box-sized species (Zaglossus attenboroughi) was extinct.

But while the Edge team were in the area, they spoke to local tribespeople who said that they had seen the creature as recently as 2005.

The scientists also discovered “nose pokes”, holes in the ground made by the echidnas as they stuck their long noses into soil to feed.
