An incredibly rare Futuro House has been put up for sale in New Zealand, where less than ten of the flying saucer-shaped residences exist. The brainchild of Finnish architect Matti Suuronen, approximately 100 of the homes were constructed over the course of the 1960s and ’70s. Since that time, a great number of the houses have fallen into disrepair, making the remaining residences something of an expensive collector’s item with some becoming roadside attractions and one, in California, was transformed into an Airbnb.
This particular Futuro House is reportedly located in the city of Christchurch and has been on display at various sites throughout the city over the last 14 years. For fans of the famed residences, the home serves as something of a museum as it contains a number of placards detailing the history of the odd buildings. Although there is no listed asking price for the ‘UFO House,’ an initial estimate placed the value at around $200,000, though that price could climb considerably higher given the rarity of the residence as well as its pristine condition.
The real thing.
The Misfits are an American punk rock band often recognized as the progenitors of the horror punk subgenre, blending punk and other musical influences with horror film themes and imagery. The group was founded in 1977 in Lodi, New Jersey, by vocalist, songwriter and keyboardist Glenn Danzig, and drummer Manny Martínez. Jerry Only joined on bass guitar shortly after. Over the next six years, membership would change frequently with Danzig and Only the only consistent members. During this time period, they released several EPs and singles, and with Only’s brother Doyle as guitarist, the albums Walk Among Us (1982) and Earth A.D./Wolfs Blood (1983), both considered touchstones of the early-1980s hardcore punk movement. The band has gone through many lineup changes over the years, with bassist Jerry Only being the only constant member in the group.
The latest cryptozoological sightings from around North America. A dogman encounter in Maine, where a couple renting a farmhouse witnessed several 7-foot tall wolf-like creatures walking upright on their hind legs advancing toward them. They took refuge in their house, peering from a window on the second floor, and watched in amazement as the creatures stared up at them. Another related dogman sighting took place at Mount Baldy in Alberta, where a hiker claimed to have come face to face with an upright walking dogman. The creature appeared to recognize the hiker’s camera and ran off.
Multiple Bigfoot sightings in Wisconsin were reported . Between 1964 through 2011 there have been 14 well-documented sightings in a small region of the state. Two sightings have been reported at the Lima Marsh, a student as well as two restaurant owners have claimed to encounter a bigfoot-like creature in the area. In another report, a woman digging in her garden heard a growl and turned to find an 8-foot tall bigfoot-like creature standing in the weeds. She took castings of footprints that measured 20 inches long by 13 inches wide.
Some of the beasts look like they are trying to fit in.
An odd UFO that was spotted by several New Jersey residents and sparked something of an ‘alien panic’ on social media has been identified as being merely the Goodyear Blimp. The weird ‘mass sighting’ reportedly occurred on Monday evening when numerous people living in the northern part of the state noticed a curious object hovering in the sky near a major highway. The sight was apparently so strange that multiple motorists stopped their cars to watch the puzzling aerial interloper and numerous people pulled out their cameras to film the oval-shaped which seemed to sport a glowing base.
Social media was soon flooded with footage of the suspected alien craft with many of the videos garnered hundreds-of-thousands and, in one case, millions of views. Unsurprisingly, given the staggering nature of what the witnesses thought they were seeing, most of the accounts were peppered with profanities and concerns about an ET invasion about to unfold. Fortunately, it did not take long before cooler heads prevailed and it was determined that, in fact, the ‘mothership’ was actually the Goodyear Blimp headed over to MetLife Stadium for Monday Night Football.
People have to be careful when they see something strange in the sky. 90 percent of the time there is an Earthly explanation. It is the other 10 percent that is so mysterious and intriguing.
Mount Shasta is a potentially active volcano at the southern end of the Cascade Range in Siskiyou County, California. At an elevation of 14,179 feet (4321.8 m), it is the second-highest peak in the Cascades and the fifth-highest in the state. Mount Shasta has an estimated volume of 85 cubic miles (350 km3), which makes it the most voluminous stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc. The mountain and surrounding area are part of the Shasta–Trinity National Forest.
Mount Shasta is connected to its satellite cone of Shastina, and together they dominate the landscape. Shasta rises abruptly to tower nearly 10,000 feet (3,000 m) above its surroundings. On a clear winter day, the mountain can be seen from the floor of the Central Valley 140 miles (230 km) to the south. The mountain has attracted the attention of poets, authors, and presidents.
The mountain consists of four overlapping dormant volcanic cones that have built a complex shape, including the main summit and the prominent satellite cone of 12,330 ft (3,760 m) Shastina, which has a visibly conical form. If Shastina were a separate mountain, it would rank as the fourth-highest peak of the Cascade Range (after Mount Rainier, Rainier’s Liberty Cap, and Mount Shasta itself).
California’s Mount Shasta has been the subject of an unusually large number of myths and legends. In particular, it is often said to hide a secret city beneath its peaks. In some stories, the city is no longer inhabited, while in others, it is inhabited by a technologically advanced society of human beings or mythical creatures.
Mount Shasta can generate lenticular clouds, which may contribute to its supernatural reputation.
According to local indigenous tribes, namely the Klamath people, Mount Shasta is inhabited by the spirit chief Skell, who descended from heaven to the mountain’s summit. Skell fought with Spirit of the Below-World, Llao, who resided at Mount Mazama, by throwing hot rocks and lava, probably representing the volcanic eruptions at both mountains. Writer Joaquin Miller recorded various related legends in the 1870s.
Mount Shasta has also been a focus for non-Native American legends, centered on a hidden city (called Telos) of advanced beings from the lost continent of Lemuria. The legend grew from an offhand mention of Lemuria in the 1880s. In 1899, Frederick Spencer Oliver published A Dweller on Two Planets, which claimed that survivors from a sunken continent called Lemuria were living in or on Mount Shasta. Oliver’s Lemurians lived in a complex of tunnels beneath the mountain and occasionally were seen walking the surface dressed in white robes. In 1931, Harvey Spencer Lewis, using the pseudonym Wisar Spenle Cerve, wrote a book (published by the Rosicrucians) about the hidden Lemurians of Mount Shasta that a bibliography on Mount Shasta described as “responsible for the legend’s widespread popularity.” This belief has been incorporated into numerous occult religions, including “I AM” Activity, The Summit Lighthouse, Church Universal and Triumphant, and Kryon.
According to Guy Ballard, while hiking on Mount Shasta, he encountered a man who introduced himself as Count of St. Germain, who is said to have started Ballard on the path to discovering the teachings that would become the “I AM” Activity religious movement.
According to a legend, J. C. Brown was a British prospector who discovered a lost underground city beneath Mt. Shasta in 1904. Brown had been hired by the Lord Cowdray Mining Company of England to prospect for gold, and discovered a cave which sloped downward for 11 miles. In the cave, he found an underground village filled with gold, shields, and mummies, some being up to 10 feet tall.
Thirty years later, he told his story to John C. Root, who proceeded to gather an exploration team in Stockton, California. About 80 people joined the team, but on the day the team was to set out, Brown did not show up. Brown was not heard from again.
Mount Shasta is believed to be a home base for the Lizard People, too, reptilian humanoids that also reside underground. The mountain is a hotbed of UFO sightings, one of the most recent of which occurred in February 2020. (It was a saucer-shaped lenticular cloud.) In fact, the mountain is associated with so many otherworldly, paranormal, and mythical beings—in addition to long-established Native American traditions—that it’s almost like a who’s who of metaphysics. It has attracted a legion of followers over the years, including “Poet of the Sierras” Joaquin Miller and naturalist John Muir, as well as fringe religious organizations such as the Ascended Masters, who believe that they’re enlightened beings existing in higher dimensions. What is it about this mountain in particular that inspires so much belief?
Pluto’s Cave is a volcanic lava tube on the outskirts of Mount Shasta.
“There’s a lot about Mount Shasta, and volcanoes in general, that are difficult to explain,” says Andrew Calvert, scientist-in-charge at the California Volcano Observatory, “and when you’re having difficulty explaining something, you try and understand it.” Calvert has studied Shasta’s eruptive history since 2001. “It’s such a complicated and rich history,” he says, “and Shasta itself is also very visually powerful. These qualities build on each other to make it a profound place for a lot of people—geologists, spirituality seekers … even San Francisco tech folks, and hunters and gatherers from 10,000 years ago. It’s one that can have a really strong effect on your psyche.”
Taylor Tupper, a Modoc Indian of the Klamath Tribes, raised in the Klamath Basin just north of Shasta. Tupper says she leaves people to their own beliefs about Shasta as well: spiritual, metaphysical, or simply on another plane. “People always ask me about UFOs and such, and I say I’m not going to go poking around in others’ business. Every place you go is sacred or special to someone or something, or was at some point. Treat it all with respect and your spirit will be in tune with nature and the creator, and you won’t be going against spiritual law. If you are going against it, nature will let you know.”
Egypt has invited billionaire Elon Musk to visit the country and see for himself that its famous pyramids were not built by aliens.
The SpaceX boss had tweeted what appeared to be support for conspiracy theorists who say aliens were involved in the colossal construction effort.
But Egypt’s international co-operation minister does not want them taking any of the credit.
She says seeing the tombs of the pyramid builders would be the proof.
The tombs discovered in the 1990s are definitive evidence, experts say, that the magnificent structures were indeed built by ancient Egyptians.
On Friday, the tech tycoon tweeted: “Aliens built the pyramids obv”, which was retweeted more than 84,000 times.
Egypt’s Minister of International Co-operation Rania al-Mashat responded on Twitter, saying she followed and admired Mr Musk’s work.
But she urged him to further explore evidence about the building of the structures built for pharaohs of Egypt.
Mr Musk did later tweet a link to a BBC History site about the lives of the pyramid builders, saying: “This BBC article provides a sensible summary for how it was done.”
There are more than 100 surviving pyramids but the most famous is the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt – standing at more than 450ft (137m).
Most of them were built as tombs – a final resting places for Egypt’s royalty.
Mr Musk is known for his prolific and at times erratic tweeting. He once told CNBC: “Twitter’s a war zone. If somebody’s gonna jump in the war zone, it’s, like, ‘Okay, you’re in the arena. Let’s go!'”
An enlightening study of reported Sasquatch sightings determined which states rank among the best places to possibly see a Bigfoot. Developed by the website Satellite Internet, the project compared the database of reports from the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization against respective state populations and produced a ranked list. As one might expect, at the top of the chart was Sasquatch hotspot Washington state with a whopping 8.9 sightings for every 100,000 residents. Rounding out the top five for Bigfoot sightings by population were Oregon, West Virginia, Idaho, and Montana.
At the bottom of the list, in descending order, were Delaware, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and, ranked dead last, Nevada. Other noteworthy tidbits from the study were that, by virtue of their sizeable population, California, Florida, Ohio, and Illinois were among the top five states for sightings of Sasquatch overall with Washington topping that list likely due to what one assumes is a fairly healthy number of Bigfoot running around the area. And, oddly enough, the only state not listed is Hawaii, which apparently has not logged any sightings of the legendary cryptid in the database used for the study.
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.
What happened here ? Image Credit: YouTube / SWNS / Ben Landricombe
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.
