    Watts Up With That ^ | September 12, 2018 | Anthony Watts
    UPDATE 9/12/18 4PM PST The issue may be related to Mercury (the metal, not the planet). On a tip from a science journalist friend who covers telescopes and who has been there, I verified the observatory uses a vat of liquid mercury as a float bearing for the giant solar telescope. According to an internal NSO/NMSU document, that bearing is “high-risk” during maintenance. If there was a major mercury spill, it might explain why the Feds are there, with FBI providing security. The amount of Mercury is said to be in the “tens of gallons” range, which is next to...

    Festival organizer John Bruner has led the Bigfoot 911 explorer team for years here. He says they used the juice about a year ago and finally hit pay dirt. "We were doing an expedition and I had one cross the forest service road about 30 yards from where I was at, and I got a really good look at it," Bruner says. "I've been hunting Bigfoot for 40 years and doing research — and it was just totally exhilarating for me. ... I finally got to see one after all I've went through and all the time I've spent in...

  • Some Velvet Morning - Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood

    Here is pop nugget from the past that only more "seasoned" Freepers will remember. Released in 1967, it was a Top 30 hit in America and had an otherworldly vibe to it. Very trippy and psychedelic. I can almost picture Frank asking his daughter what the hell she and Lee were smoking to come up with this one. I was just a small boy when this was popular but I remember hearing it on the radio. The accompanying video I linked here has a post apocalyptic "Planet of the Apes" feel to it. I did not discover the video until...

    Way out in Nevada, the secret base from Independence Day — yes, Area 51 — is hiring a pilot for the only airline that flies direct to the secluded destination. Janet Air — as in “Just Another Non Existent Terminal” — flies a nondescript red-striped fleet of 737s from Las Vegas to various sandy, high-security government outposts where, as in Vegas, what goes on there stays there. The job posting in question is looking for a 3,000-hour pilot with an active Top Secret clearance and little interest in what their passengers do at work. According to salary research site Glassdoor,...

    LAS VEGAS — Authorities in Nevada say Art Bell, a syndicated radio host best known for nightly shows in the 1990s about paranormal themes and conspiracy theories, died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs. Nye County Sheriff Sharon Wehrly posted a brief Facebook announcement on Wednesday saying an autopsy determined the 72-year-old Bell died of "multiple drug intoxication from his own lawfully prescribed prescriptions." Coroner John Fudenberg in Las Vegas says Bell had the painkillers..

    The severely elongated head of a preserved skeleton found in Peru's Atacama Desert in 2003 is so unusual that it initially prompted people to suggest that the diminutive body was that of an extraterrestrial. Since then, DNA testing confirmed that the remains — which measure about 6 inches (15 centimeters) long — belonged to a human fetus that researchers named Ata. But the scientists who conducted that investigation and published their findings in March have recently come under fire for their methods. ...Their investigation, which did not include any Chilean researchers, may have sidestepped protocols that typically monitor the ethics...

    It will let researchers study distant energy sources across the universe in "a completely new way" SCIENTISTS have captured a ghost-like subatomic particle on Earth, helping to solve a mystery baffling scientists for 100 years. The so-called "ghost particle" was trapped by researchers in a giant ice cube at the South Pole. It's actually a high-energy neutrino, and is the first of its type ever detected by scientists. Importantly, researchers believe they've tracked its likely source: a supermassive black hole that emits light and cosmic rays. The black hole is roughly four billion light years away, at the centre of...

    A self-proclaimed paranormal researcher claims to have discovered a time warp on the outskirts of Las Vegas, which he says slows time down, Fox 5 Las Vegas reports. The bizarre claim gives a whole new meaning to the notion of a "Lost weekend in Las Vegas." The researcher, Joshua Warren, told the outlet that he had tested several areas between Las Vegas and Area 51, but only found a reading in an area north of Sin City, between I-15 and Route 93. “The weird thing, the real holy grail here, was what we picked up with this brand-new piece of...

    The announcement that President Donald Trump wanted to create a “Space Force” that would serve as a co-equal branch of the Armed Forces brought a wide range of reactions. Some experts believed we needed it to defend U.S. interests above the clouds, including protecting our satellites and preventing orbital bombardment by China or Russia. Others posited it as a dangerous step toward the irrevocable militarization of space. And some said it didn’t matter, either because the unilateral expansion of the armed forces is beyond the scope of presidential power, or because Trump says he’s going to do a lot of...
  • Paranormal Investigator Claims To Find ‘Time Warp’ Near Las Vegas

    LAS VEGAS (CBS LOCAL) — Apparently what happens in Vegas, may not actually stay in Vegas. A paranormal researcher named Joshua Warren claims he is the first person to ever discover a time warp, which he found near the city. Warren said he has been measuring the rate of time all over in areas between Las Vegas and the top secret Air Force site known as Area 51. Last week he found a spot in the desert just north of Vegas where he claims time has slowed down. Using what’s known as a “differential time rate meter,” also known as...

    A large wolf-like animal shot and killed in Montana has wildlife officials and social media wondering what it was. A rancher shot the gray-haired beast on May 16 when it ventured too close to his livestock in Denton. The rancher reported that he killed a wolf but wolf specialists looked at photos of the animal and doubted it was a purebred wolf, ABCFoxMontana reported. “The canine teeth were too shot, the front paws too small and claws on the front paw were too long,” Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks spokesman Bruce Auchly said in a news release Thursday. “Nevertheless, social...

    April 14, 2018, IceBridge mission scientist John Sonntag spotted something he had never seen before. Sonntag snapped this photograph from the window of the P-3 research plane while flying over the eastern Beaufort Sea. At the time, the aircraft’s location was 69.71° North and 138.22° West, about 50 miles northwest of Canada’s Mackenzie River Delta. “We saw these sorta-circular features only for a few minutes today,” Sonntag wrote from the field. “I don’t recall seeing this sort of thing elsewhere.” The features are more of a curiosity than anything else. The main purpose of the flight that day was to...
