  • People Are Seeing U.F.O.s Everywhere, and This Book Proves It

    The New York Times ^ | 4/24/2017 | Ralph Blumenthal
    SYRACUSE — Why have sightings of unidentified flying objects around the nation more than tripled since 2001? Why is July the busiest month for U.F.O. sightings? Why did they spike in Texas in 2008, or in New Mexico in September 2015? And how in the world, or out of it, has Manhattan racked up New York State’s second-highest tally of U.F.O. sightings in this century? These questions and many others emerge from the first comprehensive statistical summary of so-called close encounters: 121,036 eyewitness accounts, organized county by county in each state and the District of Columbia, from 2001 to 2015.

  • Gal With Green Baby Says She Was Raped By A Leprechaun

    Previously posted... Posted on 08/05/2005 1:46:06 PM PDT by Rebelbase DOCTORS in Mallow, Ireland, are puzzled by the birth of a green baby. But single mom Bridget O'Leary, 26, says there's a very simple explanation -- she claims she was raped by a leprechaun. "He had his way with me, he did," says the attractive barmaid. "He got me drunk and slipped me his little green shamrock." By all accounts O'Leary has a sterling reputation as a hardworking, upstanding individual. "Bridget is a fine lass, and no mistake," says Tom Shaughnessey, 44, the owner of the Brick and the Rose...

    Unfortunately, I just received a call from the national campaign chairman. The event at JCJC has been cancelled. Ted Cruz will not be in Mississippi tomorrow, as he evidently does not feel well. This is difficult news to deliver, but we trust that God has a plan for the campaign and for Mississippi. I wish you all the best.

    I am wondering if any FReepers had unexpected results when they did a DNA test during a family History search. In my case I was looking for an oppressed history of serfdom and general nastiness from Norman Overlords during the Middle Ages, just preparing for an Obama America. To my surprise I discovered we were Normans, in the Staple, Merchants, and in general capitalists, until God and Religion brought us unto this Blessed Shore to continue in the same trades. So in this election year of the usual Freeper cage fights I thought to step outside the blood and gore...

    Bush clan members aren't fans of having their family dynamics psychoanalyzed - what the political family calls "put on the couch," like a therapy session, according to a recent New York Times article. But while speaking at a town hall-style event on Thursday in Londonderry, N.H., the 2016 Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush got people talking when, without being asked, he revealed that he loves his mother, Barbara, the most. "I get asked all the time: 'Well, are you like your brother? Are you like your dad?'" he said. "I know there's a real fascination about this. Let's just -...

    The men of the Bush family hate being "put in the couch," their preferred term for dismissing the news media's attempts to psychoanalyze their political dynasty. But it might be worth bringing in Sigmund Freud for Jeb Bush's latest remarks. Speaking at a town hall-style event on Thursday, Mr. Bush, unprompted, offered that he loves his mom, Barbara Bush, most of all. -snip- let me get this out of the way: I love my mother more than my dad."

    The Week ^ | 1/6/16 | Jeva Lange
    The jury is still out on whether or not Jeb Bush is okay, and this new information might not do much to reassure anyone on the fence about it. Apparently the presidential hopeful carries small toy turtles around in his pockets to remind others - and presumably himself - that "slow and steady wins the race." Bush gave Zacharie, 13, a tiny turtle & told him "slow and steady wins the race." Bush carries them in his pocket.

    #1 On Wednesday, the New York Stock Exchange, United Airlines and the Wall Street Journal were all taken down by unexpected “technical glitches“. Authorities are assuring us that hackers were not responsible for any of this. #2 In China, a full-blown stock market crash is unfolding. The Shanghai Composite Index has plummeted more than 30 percent in less than a month, and the Chinese version of the NASDAQ has dropped by more than 40 percent. The amount of “paper wealth” that has been lost in China is 15 times greater than the GDP of Greece. #3 Just the other day,...

    Rachel M. MacNair wrote a book on the stress individuals deal with when they regularly commit violent acts. Her book discusses the experience of soldiers during wartime, and it also has a chapter on abortion. She recounts hearing about one abortionist’s bizarre behavior, which she attributes to work-related stress. In a telephone conversation, a woman who worked for a doctor in Louisiana for a few months recounted an incident: “The one thing that sticks out in my mind the most, that really upset me the most, was that he had done an abortion, he had a fetus wrapped inside of...

Infection rates are rising again among men who have sex with men -- the group at the epicentre of AIDS pandemic when it first emerged 33 years ago, he told reporters in Geneva.

    LITTLE FALLS, Minn. – A Minnesota homeowner who shot and killed two teenagers during a break-in was convicted Tuesday of premeditated murder. Bryon Smith had claimed he was simply defending himself during the break-in at his home in the small city of Little Falls on Thanksgiving Day 2012. Smith's attorney said the 65-year-old was fearful after previous burglaries. But prosecutors argued that Smith waited in his basement and intended to kill the teens. A total of nine shots were fired at 17-year-old Nick Brady and 18-year-old Haile Kifer. Jurors began deliberating Tuesday morning and within three hours had a verdict:...
