Man discovers ‘UFO crash site’ in the woods

This guy jumps to conclusions pretty quick. Why would this be a UFO crash site? Could be a strange weather phenomena. These bloody UFOs come from thousands of light years away and then they crash when they get to earth! I think these things could handle the earth atmosphere without crashing.

A man from Plymouth, England has filmed a peculiar area of flattened trees in the middle of a Devon wood.

Ben Landricombe came across the unusual scene near Meddon on July 4th while walking his dog.

“Found a crash site in the woods – could be UFO,” he said.

“I stopped to take the dog for a walk in the woods today as we’re camping. [The trees] were snapped at the top – that was what I thought was strange”.

Sure enough, the footage does appear to show a large area of flattened and bent trees arranged in such a way so as to suggest that something heavy had fallen down on top of them.

“We took the pictures and then felt someone was watching us and heard weird sounds so we ran back to our camper,” said Landricombe. “Something strange about this place.”

According to a local news report, he also heard ‘screams’ within the vicinity of the site.

As things stand however, no definitive explanation of his discovery has yet been found.

Japan Bans Screaming on Roller Coasters

Even though Florida opened Disney World yesterday, and Tokyo Disneyland was open as of July 1st, there are still guidelines that must be followed at at least some theme parks in Japan.

One of the most bizarre is the banning of screaming on thrill rides. The idea is that, even with masks in place while whipping along at roller coaster speeds, anything that would cause the COVID 19 virus to be spread more easily (such as talking and singing, much less yelling) should be prohibited. A video posted by the Fuji-Q company shows bemasked executives riding in complete silence and ends with the admonishment to “please scream inside your heart.” The rule seems in effect at the Fuji-Q facilities, but may just be a company policy so far.

This could also be considered an appropriate response to the events of 2020 in general.

Just have to hold that scream in.

Mysterious ‘vampire-slaying kit’ including pistol and knife up for auction

A “vampire-slaying kit” containing a pocket-sized pistol and a 19th century copy of the New Testament is going under the hammer.

The gothic-looking container, worth between £2,000 and £3,000, also comes packed with pliers, rosary and a bottle of shark’s teeth.

Also inside the metal-bound box is an ivory-robed wolf carrying rosary beads, as well as a blue phial with mysterious contents and a silver-bladed pocket knife.

And inside the lid is an oval enamel painting that depicts the resurrection of Jesus Christ.


There’s no record of the box’s origin, but the 1842 copy of the New Testament within does bear the inscription of an Isabella Swarbrick.

“I have had it in my own collection for three years now,” they said.

“I bought it from a large antiques fair in Newark-on-Trent.

“I loved the look of the Gothic box and, when I opened it, I just had to have it. I thought it was so interesting – a great conversation piece.”

Charles Hanson, owner of the Derbyshire-based Hansons Auctioneers, the firm selling the box, said: “People are fascinated by stories of vampires, hence their continued appearance in films and on TV today.

“They have been part of popular culture for more than 200 years.

“The publication of John Polidori’s The Vampyre in 1819 had a major impact and that was followed by Bram Stoker’s 1897 classic Dracula.”

He added: “However, a belief in vampires and strange superstitions goes back even further and persists to this day.

“The task of killing a vampire was extremely serious and historical accounts suggested the need for particular methods and tools.

“Items of religious significance, such as crucifixes and Bibles, were said to repel these monsters, hence their strong presence in the kit we have found.”

The box will be sold online on 16 July, as part of a five-day-long antiques and collector’s auction.

Another vampire killing box appeared a couple years ago. This one seems a little more elaborate. Bigger gun and many stakes.

Can’t let these things run around unchecked.


Rock Stars and Musicians that died at age 27, very bizarre.

The number of rockers who were taken from us too early in life — whether by accident, violence or misadventure — is obviously far too large. The fact that so many of the biggest and most influential talents in rock history died at the age of 27 is even more bizarre, and when you think about it, downright creepy.

Over the years, the stories behind the deaths of the members of this so called “27 club” have grown more and more inflated and outrageous, with everything from legal cover-ups to elaborate hoaxes and even deals with the devil trotted out to try and make some sense of these tragic losses.

Together with our friends at Loudwire, we try to distinguish fact from fiction regarding these sad stories on the following list of Rockers Who Died at Age 27.


Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison all died at the age of 27 between 1969 and 1971. At the time, the coincidence gave rise to some comment but it was not until the death of Kurt Cobain, about two and a half decades later, that the idea of a “27 Club” began to catch on in public perception.

According to Hendrix and Cobain biographer Charles R. Cross, the growing importance of the media—Internet, television and magazines—and the response to an interview of Cobain’s mother were jointly responsible for such theories. An excerpt from a statement that Cobain’s mother, Wendy Fradenburg Cobain O’Connor, made in the Aberdeen, Washington newspaper The Daily World—”Now he’s gone and joined that stupid club. I told him not to join that stupid club.”—referred to Hendrix, Joplin, and Morrison dying at the same age, according to Cross. Other authors share his view. On the other hand, Josh Hunter and Eric Segalstad, writer of The 27s: The Greatest Myth of Rock & Roll, assumed that Cobain’s mother referred to the death of his two uncles and his great uncle, who all committed suicide. According to Cross, the events have led a “set of conspiracy theorists [to suggest] the absurd notion that Kurt Cobain intentionally timed his death so he could join the 27 Club”.

In 2011, seventeen years after Cobain’s death, Amy Winehouse died at the age of 27, and there was a large amount of media attention devoted to the club once again. Three years earlier, she had expressed a fear of dying at that age.

Areas of the World where there are no Snakes

Growing up on a farm in rural Manitoba I encountered garter snakes many times. Even though the little varmints are harmless as a flea, I would almost jump out of my skin when I noticed the creepy crawly.  It was the slippery motion through the grass that was so bizarre and unsettling.  It would take 5 minutes before my nerves settled.  However I found out that there are places on the planet with no indigenous snakes. Snake-less nirvana.


Top places with no snakes:





Newfoundland, the remote province on the Canadian east coast, is a great place to go because it’s blessed with no native snakes whatsoever. The island was completely frozen over during the last ice age and so had to go through a big phase of species recolonization in its aftermath. Many animals came to Newfoundland and prospered, snakes however did not. Several garter snakes have been spotted in recent times unfortunately but it is unclear whether they were introduced, maybe as an extravagant pet or snuck in in crates or imported hay bales.





Hawaii is a snake-haters paradise. Beautiful rainforests and warm climates are normally laden with snakes, but not in Hawaii. The islands may be a U.S. state but they’re very remote geographically, making it impossible for snakes to slither/swim there That was until a few decades ago anyway. Pre-1980s Hawaii was excellent for avoiding snakes, 1980s Hawaii onwards not so much. An increased number of imports at that time resulted in some unwelcome stowaways arriving in shipping containers and inadvertently Hawaii welcomed species like the poisonous brown tree snake to its shores. There’s actually also one native snake but it’s not on land, the yellow-bellied sea-snake is occasionally recorded off the Hawaiian coast although chances of seeing one is unlikely.





The lack of snakes in Ireland isn’t just common knowledge, it’s legendary. According to folklore, St Patrick supposedly chased all the snakes out in around A.D. 400 and made quite a name for himself in the process. Scientists will tell a different story, something to do with an ice age, a vanishing land bridge and snakes being cut-off in Scotland by the sea. The 90’s messed that up however, snakes became popular as status symbols in the good times but when the economic downturn hit, many were simply released into the wild. Yet despite the odd news story surfacing about a rogue tame rattlesnake or viper slithering around, Ireland is a good place to be for snake-fearers. There’s actually only one reptile native to the entire Emerald Isle, the harmless viviparous lizard.


Cape Verde and the Azores



In the North Atlantic, there are two great candidates for snake-free paradises. Sovereign state Cape Verde and the Portuguese-governed Azores are blessed with no native snakes, despite their sunny climate and tropical vibes. This is entirely down to their distance from the mainland, Cape Verde is far enough west of Africa to not have any snake infestations while the Azores are far enough west of the European mainland. So what’s the catch? Well, there isn’t one. Not yet anyway. But stories from similar islands serve as a warning about what could happen if controls don’t hold firm, the Canary Islands for instance being blighted by a major influx of imported Californian king snakes.


New Zealand



Remarkably, despite its size and subtropical climate, New Zealand is completely absent of snakes on land. This is down to the islands’ very remote nature, continental drift pushed the country far out into the Pacific many millions of years ago, well out of the reach of the serpents lingering on big land masses like Australia. In order to preserve its fragile endemic wildlife, the New Zealand authorities make sure to keep it that way and take their no snakes policy very seriously. It’s strictly prohibited for anyone to keep a snake and a jail sentence may await for anyone looking to rebel. Regrettably, although the land laws are very much anti-snake, not much can be done about any sea snakes lurking around the coasts. Thankfully though sightings are rare and only two species have ever been recorded in New Zealand’s oceans, the yellow-bellied sea snake is seen infrequently and the other, the banded sea krait, is incredibly rare.

This is strange considering New Zealand’s neighbour to the northeast, Australia, is infested with every type of poisonous killer snake ever imagined. The poor Aussies also have to deal with big fat grumpy pythons that bite and try to strangle people to death.





A small, isolated, island nation in the Atlantic, Iceland is one of the very few places on Earth that never encounters a wild snake. That is unless you choose to believe in the mythical serpent-like Lagarfljótsormur creature of course, which has supposedly been spotted swimming around the country’s lakes since A.D. 1345. Tall tales aside, Iceland is probably never going to have any snakes and if any did somehow make it there, it’s not likely they’d survive long in the cool climate. Escaped pets aren’t even an issue here, exotic animals (and therefore reptiles) are banned and it’s a law that’s rarely broken.





Perhaps an obvious number one but for good reason. The only continent without reptiles, Antarctica is the coldest place on Earth and so not exactly the most welcoming of environments. There’s no way a snake could warm itself up there (even at the height of summer) and because there are no resident human populations on Antarctica, there are no homes from snakes to escape from. The difficult thing (aside form the cold) is finding a way of being able to stay there. The only people really able to enjoy the 365-day a year snake-free lifestyle are scientists so if you’re desperate enough to avoid snakes, a career in glaciology or polar biology is probably the best way to go.


Check out any of these places if you want to avoid snakes.  No worries about dying a brutally painful death from toxic poison. Or meeting your maker in the manner below:
