Giant Stone Balls of Costa Rica

Workmen hacking and burning their way through the dense jungle of Costa Rica to clear an area for banana plantations in the 1930s stumbled upon some incredible objects: dozens of stone balls, many of which were perfectly spherical. They varied in size from as small as a tennis ball to an astonishing 8 feet in diameter and weighing 16 tons! Although the great stone balls are clearly man-made, it is unknown who made them, for what purpose and, most puzzling, how they achieved such spherical precision.

Ark of the Covenant

The Ark is considered the greatest of all hidden treasures and its discovery would provide indisputable truth that the Old Testament is hard fact. Its recovery remains the goal of every modern archaeologist and adventurer. Its purpose was as a container for the ten commandments given on stone tablets by God to Moses on Mount Sinai. According to the book of Exodus, the Ark is made of shittim wood (similar to acacia) and gold-covered inside and out. It was topped by a mercy seat comprising two cherubs also made of gold. It was believed to have supernatural powers due to several events, including causing the death of a man, who attempted to steady the Ark as the oxen hauling it stumbled, bringing down the walls of Jericho in one battle, and showering misfortune on the Philistines after they captured it in another. There are several speculations around the final resting place of the Ark, and whilst it would take a shrewd operator to find it, it would need a brave or even foolhardy person to open it!

Six Weird Creatures You Don't Want to Meet

Most of us are familiar with the stories and legends surrounding such mysterious and elusive creatures as Bigfoot or Yeti, The Loch Ness Monster and, more recently, Chupacabras. But there is a host of lesser-known yet equally enigmatic creatures that have been spotted around the world - spotted often enough that they have been given names. They're weird, they're evasive, and they're very often dangerous. Here are some of the world's strangest crypto-creatures:

Background: The creature known as The Jersey Devil has been roaming the pine barrens of New Jersey since 1735 . Sightings are still reprted today. It has been estimated that more than 2,000 witnesses have spotted the entity over this time. Panic over alleged sightings has sent terror through towns and has even caused schools and factories to temporarily shut down. Most researchers believe, however, that the Jersey Devil is mere legend, a mythical beast that originated from the folklore of the New Jersey Pine Barrens. Others, of course, disagree.

Description (from an eyewitness): "It was about three-and-a-half feet high, with a head like a collie dog and a face like a horse. It had a long neck, wings about two feet long, and its back legs were like those of a crane, and it had horse's hooves. It walked on its back legs and held up two short front legs with paws on them."


Background: As recorded in John Keel's seminal book The Mothman Prophecies, The Mothman sightings began to be reported in 1966. The red-eyed winged creature was dubbed "Mothman" by a newspaper reported, since the "Batman" TV series was at the height of its popularity. Sightings continued and fervor escalated over the following months, coinciding with a bewildering array of strange activity- including precognition, odd prophecies, UFO sightings and encounters with bizarre "Men in Black." It's one of the most puzzling and fascinating periods on record of paranormal activity focused in one geographic area. The creature itself has never been explained, although skeptics laughably suggested that it was a mis-sighting of a sand crane.

Description: Approximately seven feet tall; has a wingspan over 10 feet wide; gray, scaly skin; large, red, glowing, and hypnotic eyes; able to take off straight up in flight without flapping its wings; travels up to 100 miles an hour; likes to mutilate or eat large dogs; screeches or squeals like a rodent or electric motor; likes to chase cars; likes to "nest" in remote, unpopulated areas; causes radio and television interference; drawn to, and protective of, small children; has some mind control powers.


Background: From Australia comes the legend of the Bunyip. The Aboriginal stories say they lurk in swamps, billabongs (a pool linked to river), creeks, riverbeds and waterholes. They are said to emerge at night and have been heard to make terrifying, blood-curdling cries. Furthermore, say the tales, the Bunyip will devour any animal or human that dares venture near its abode. The Bunyip's favorite prey is said to be women."

Description: Some describe the Bunyip as a gorilla-type animal (like Bigfoot or the Australian Yowie), while others say it is half animal, half human or spirit. Bunyips come in all sizes, shapes, and colors. Some are described to have long tails or necks, wings, claws, horns, trunks (like an elephant), fur, scales, fins, feathers... any combination of these.

The Loveland Lizard

Background: The Loveland creature case was first investigated thoroughly by two OUFOIL (Ohio UFO Investigators League) investigators, who spent several hours with the two officers who saw this strange-looking creature. The first account took place on a clear, cold night on March 3, 1972.

Description: Three or four feet tall, weighing around 50 to 75 lbs., its body looked like looked leathery textured skin, and had a face resembling a


Background : "The Popobawa first appeared on Pemba, the smaller of Zanzibar's two main islands, in 1972. The Popobawa instructed its victims that unless they told others of its ordeal, it would be back. The island was in uproar as men went about announcing that they had been sodomized. After a few weeks, the Popobawa departed. There was another period of attacks in the 1980s, but nothing more until April 1995 when the winged beast swooped on Zanzibar's largest island. Last year, there was widespread fear in Zanzibar concerning the return of the Popobawa. The name is derived from the Swahili words for bat and wing.

Description: A dwarf-like creature with a single forehead centered eye, small pointed ears, bat wings and talons.

The Dover Demon

Background: Dover, Massachusetts was the location of the sighting of a bizarre creature for a few days beginning on April 21, 1977. The first sighting was made by 17-year-old Bill Bartlett as he and three friends were driving north near the small New England town at around 10:30 at night. Through the darkness, Bartlett claimed to have seen an unusual creature creeping along a low stone wall on the side of the road - something he had never seen before and could not identify. he told his father about his experience and sketched a drawing of the creature. A few hours after Bartlett's sighting, at 12:30 a.m., John Baxter swore that he saw the same creature while walking home from his girlfriend's house. The 15-year-old boy said its arms were wrapped around the trunk of a tree, and his description of the thing matched Bartlett's exactly. The final sighting was reported the next day by another 15-year-old, Abby Brabham, a friend of one of Bill Bartlett's friends, who said it appeared briefly in the car's headlights while she and her friend were driving.

Description: The eyewitnesses described it as being about four feet tall on two legs with a hairless body and rough-textured skin, long, spindly peach-colored limbs, a large watermelon-shaped head that was nearly as big as its body, and large glowing orange

frog or lizard.

Drunk man has sex with car

Imagine parking up your new SUV on a nice quiet street, to pop to the shops only to come back and see a man hitting on your car.

And when we say 'hitting,' we don't mean the kind with a baseball bat.

Can't imagine it?

Well, a drunk man was caught having sex with an SUV that was parked on a main road.

The man, who has not been named, was seen with his pants down and getting it on with the front end of the Toyota 4X4.

And he went at it for a while - proving that it wasn't just a hit and run.

At times he looked a little frustrated, maybe because the vehicle was unresponsive to him banging against its bumper.

He was arrested after passers-by called the police.

Videos of the incident have been circulated on the web, but frankly we'll leave you to track them down if you so wish.

Ban miniskirts to prevent traffic accidents


A Ugandan government minister has said miniskirts should be banned because women wearing them distract drivers.

Nsaba Buturo siad wearing miniskirts was equivalent to being naked.

"What's wrong with a miniskirt? You can cause an accident because some of our people are weak mentally," the BBC reported him saying. If you find a naked person you begin to concentrate on the make-up of that person and yet you are driving," he said.

"These days you hardly know who is a mother from a daughter, they are all naked."

Weird Fact of the Day (that you probably didn't know)

Want to prove yourself the king of strange trivia when you're down the pub? Every day, we'll be regaling you with an odd fact about the world - each one of them guaranteed 100% absolutely probably true, and not just taken from Wikipedia*.

Friday, September 19: Today is the birthday of the smiley :-) While such literary giants as Vladimir Nabokov and Ambrose Bierce had previously proposed typographical methods of indicating a joke, the modern emoticon was invented n 1982 by Scott Fahlman of Carnegie Mellon University in America, and announced at 11:44 am on September 19. The frowny :-( was invented simultaneously

Tuesday, September 16:

In Pulp Fiction did you notice that all of the clocks are stuck on the time 4:20? No, we don't know why either.

Monday, September 15:

No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver, or purple. Don't believe us then go on, try and find one.

Friday, September 12: General John Sedgwick is widely credited as having the finest last words in military history. As the tale is normally told, at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House during the American Civil War, Sedgwick was upbraiding his Union troops for being scared in the face of Confederate fire. 'I am ashamed of you, dodging that way,' he said, adding cheerily: 'They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance.' At which point, a Confederate sharpshooter shot him in the head from a thousand yards away.

However, some sources indicate that, spoiling a good story, these were only his second-last words. A soldier apparently pointed out that dodging was actually quite a good idea, to which Sedgwick boringly replied: 'All right, my man; go to your place.' Which isn't as funny.

A dolphin: scum of the sea

Thursday, September 11: Bottlenose dolphins - they're lovely, gentle, intelligent, nurturing creatures, right? No. They are actually mass-murdering sea-psychos who may well kill for fun and kidnap female dolphins so they can gang rape them. At least, that's according to New Scientist.

Wednesday, September 10: Satanic Leaf-Tailed Geckos like group sex. Well, that's what it saya here, anyway. Further research sheds very little extra light on the subject, but that's mostly because Googling "Uroplatus phantasticus group sex" brings up some very, very naughty websites that have little to do with lizard husbandry.

DJ's angry wife sells $45,000 sports car for less than $1.00!

A controversial radio DJ's wife sold his $45,000 sports car on eBay for less than a dollar after he flirted with model Jodie Marsh on air.Kerrang 105.2's Tim Shaw told the sexy babe he was prepared to leave his wife and their two children for her.

The DJ's wife was listening and immediately started an auction on eBay to sell his Lotus Esprit Turbo with a 'Buy It Now' option of $1.00.

Radio DJ Tim Shaw
The item description read: "I need to get rid of this car in the next two to three hours before my husband gets home to find it gone and all his belongings in the street."

The car was sold in under five minutes.

It wasn't the first time this DJ upset his 27-year-old wife. When she was pregnant he rang up her sister live on air and said he thought about her while having sex with his wife.

Mrs Shaw said: "When he said he would leave me and the kids for Jodie Marsh, that was it for me. I am sick of him disrespecting this family for the sake of his act.

"The car is his pride and joy but the idiot put my name on the log book so I just sold it. I didn't care about the money, I just wanted to get him back."
Lotus Esprit Turbo, similar to the one sold for less than $1.00

ceremony, performed by the king, was kept secret.

Woman Makes Entire Wardrobe Out Of Hair

A Romanian woman has just completed creating an entire wardrobe
out of her her own hair. Ioana Cioanca, 64, started to collect
her fallen hair since she was 17 when her grandmother told her
that it was a sin to throw it out. She just completed making a
raincoat for the winter season. She says she intends to wear it
over the brown blouse and skirt crocheted from the same material
when she goes to church on Sunday.
