    The intrusion took place at Bell Stonebridge Apartments in Woodbridge, VA. “Working in politics, you become accustomed to the rough-and-tumble nature of the sport. But never in a million years could I have anticipated the New York Times sending a reporter to break into my apartment looking for a story. We’re working with police investigators, and look forward to justice being served,” Brian Landrum said in a statement. The eyewitness was listening to music when she heard rustling, turned around, and saw a female in Landrum’s kitchen. The woman was turning to leave. The kitchen is 5 to 10 feet...

    CATOOSA COUNTY, GEORGIA (RNN) - A dispute between a funeral home and the family of a deceased veteran went viral after Heritage Funeral Home refused to provide a coffin for the visitation. The Georgia funeral home initially declined the family of George Taylor, a deceased Vietnam War veteran, a coffin due to finances. During the visitation, he was placed on a gurney with a flag draped over him. James Taylor, the son of the deceased George Taylor, told WTVC that his family agreed to the arrangement, but it was a "disgrace" to his father. Ella Moss took to social media...

    We are living inside a Universe that’s so complex that if we can grasp what’s happening for a moment, we’ll fall down on our knees and cry in surrender to its marvelous beauty! Science just barely starts to scratch the surface to the nature of reality and still, its discoveries are more shocking than we were able to imagine. It proves of quantum entanglement, unified field of consciousness, free energy, superhuman abilities, singularity, parallel universes and alternate realities. All of this is so mind boggling that you would never think a kid can understand. But maybe we need a kid,...

    If you consult a large-scale map of the Essex coastline between the River Crouch and the River Thames, you will see a footpath – its route marked with a stitch-line of crosses and dashes – leaving the land at a place called Wakering Stairs and then heading due east, straight out to sea. Several hundred yards offshore, it curls northeast and runs in this direction for around three miles, still offshore, before cutting back to make landfall at Fisherman’s Head, the uppermost tip of a large, low-lying and little-known marshy island called Foulness.This is the Broomway, allegedly “the deadliest” path...

    If you're going to circumvent HOV-lane rules, go interesting or go home. That was apparently the goal of one driver in Fife, Wash., who was pulled over by a trooper Monday afternoon after the officer noticed the guy's passenger seemed a little stiff, KOMO reports. "The trooper immediately recognized it was a prop and not a passenger," fellow trooper Guy Gill tells the New York Daily News. "As the trooper approached, the driver was actually laughing." That's because the serenely smug-looking passenger was a cardboard cutout of "The Most Interesting Man in the World," the Dos Equis mascot portrayed by...

    And still the strange and intriguing sightings in photos taken by the Mars Curiosity rover keep coming: This time with the image of what looks like a humanoid figure bracketed by three bold, indented parallel lines. UFO Sightings Hotspot reported Oct. 17 that the NASA's Curiosity rover had inadvertently spied a petroglyph -- or rock engraving -- among the rust-colored stones on the Red Planet. The website noted that what looks like an etching in stone, little more than a stylized stick figure, is nearly identical to hundreds of petroglyphs engraved in columns, slabs, and rocks all over planet...

The ewe had given birth to the bizarre baby sheep at a farm in the southern town of Samita after a nine-month pregnancy although such animals normally have average pregnancy period of five months, the Arabic language daily Sabq said. “I was very surprised when this sheep remained pregnant for nine months as humans,” its owner Abu Abdullah said. “I was shocked...

    Gobekli Tepe Summary In 1994, almost forty years after The Urantia Book’s 1955 publication, excavations began at the Gobekli Tepe archaeological site in Turkey. The Gobekli Tepe site already reveals 50 engraved stone monoliths, some of them dating back to 12,000 years ago, that are at least 6,000 years older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids. A full excavation to the bottom of the site has not yet occurred, and only a small percentage of the site has been uncovered. The evidence suggests that the complex of round rooms with two especially large pillars in the middle were built for...

    Do you believe in ghosts? More to the point, do you believe the ghosts of dead rock stars hang around concerts where their songs are being played? If so, then add Ronnie James Dio to the list of possible apparitions — because according to at least one witness, he popped up (quite literally) at a Last in Line show this weekend. Last in Line is the group featuring ex-Dio guitarist Vivian Campbell, fellow founding Dio members Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain and Claude Schnell, plus lead singer Andrew Freeman. Together, they perform early Dio material from Campbell’s years with the band....

    A New York man who allegedly wanted to kill President Obama and apparently blamed him for the recent Boston bombings has been arrested for trying to build and detonate a weapon of mass destruction. Glendon Scott Crawford, 49, of Galway, N.Y., spent months designing and constructing an X-ray system that would emit deadly amounts of radiation and could be detonated remotely, according to the FBI. Crawford recruited Eric J. Feight, 54, of Hudson, N.Y, to join in the plot, and both were arrested Tuesday, the FBI said. Crawford and Feight allegedly planned to hide their weapon in a truck and...

    There are a lot of strange songs out there. But how many strange country songs are there? (By "country" I include "hillbilly," "western," "western swing," and "bluegrass," but not "folk" simply because there are oodles and oodles of bizarre folk songs). For the most part country is the sane, genre, the level-headed genre, the "plain folks" genre. But I've found a country song that is disturbing and bizarre, and I'm sure some of you have found others as well. Many years ago on the old Porter Wagoner TV show I saw Porter perform a song he had written but wished...
