With all the chaos and madness currently happening around the world there’s one story which doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon, a story which has left geologists and scientists around the globe scratching their heads in puzzlement.
Last week we featured a story about the discovery of a large hole in Siberia, Russia, in an area known as ‘the end of the world.‘ Now it seems the mystery has widened as two more similar gigantic craters have been found, the first was discovered near the village of Antipayuta in the Taz district of Siberia with a diameter of 50 feet and it’s located a few hundred miles away from the first one.
Locals have given mixed accounts of the origins of the hole with some saying that the area was covered with smoke followed by a bright flash while other villagers, (probably drunk ones), have claimed that a ‘celestial body fell there.’ The second hole was found by herders near the village of Nosok, in the Krasnoyarsk region and looks similar to the other two.
The most alarming aspect of this story is that so far experts have been unable to offer up an explanation of their origins, only that they’ve ruled out that they’re man-made.
In news which comes to us from Zimbabwe it’s been reported that a cleansing ceremony which was being carried out in a house by a team of traditional healers, ended in disaster after a goblin was beheaded and exploded leaving five people dead.
(Yes, you read that paragraph correctly)
Details are sketchy but according to survivor statements the ceremony had been arranged by a Mr Kamuyedza who had purchased a goblin from a neighbouring country, (apparently they bring wealth and prosperity to businesses), but it’s unruly behaviour was upsetting Mr Kamuyedza who decided he need to get rid of the goblin and so paid $15,000 for a special cleansing ceremony to dispose of him.
‘According to the traditional healer, Mr Kamuyedza acquired a money-spinning goblin from a nearby country to boost the fortunes of his transport business. He, however, decided to dispose of it after it started “to make extreme demands.’’ Mandere is said to have assembled a team of traditional healers including Ms Banda, to assist in conducting the ceremony. Sekuru Shumba [the healer] beheaded the goblin. Clever (the businessman), subsequently, told his wife to collect the US$15 000 from their car that was parked outside. “That is when Sekuru shouted that the goblin was fighting back. All I remember after that is a loud sound coming from the bedroom. The walls of the house crumbled. Virginia and I struggled to get outside.” The mysterious blast killed five people, including Sekuru Shumba, the businessman and a seven-month-old child. Investigators are still trying to establish the cause of the explosion that also damaged 12 other houses.’

This excellent montage video was only uploaded on Tuesday from UFO website AnonymousFO and some of the footage featured was only captured last week. As is always the case with these videos there are sightings here which probably could be explained but for every one of them there’s at least three which will leave you scratching your head.
Look out your tin foil hats!
“I take back any false or bad remarks, any rudeness or negative actions.”
That’s what was written on a dozen letters sent out to businesses and residents in the small town of Whistable, leaving locals confused and a little bit worried. As reported by This Is Kent pub landlords, grocers and residents of the town have all received the mysterious handwritten letter and no-one seems to able to offer up an explanation.
There are theories that it could be some sort of suicide note or even a letter from a member of an Alcoholics Anonymous programme which encourages alcoholics to reach out to those they’ve wronged or harmed during their addiction so they can make amends. So far the origins of the letter remain a mystery.

This has all the elements of a traditional story from a ‘Boy’s Own‘ annual.
It was announced this week that former WBA Heavyweight World Champion Nikolai Valuev had traveled to Siberia to try to find an infamous Yeti in the region of Tashtagol. Over the years there have been various reports of Yeti’s in Siberia, eye witness accounts and even the discovery of what appeared to be a Yeti’s limb back in 2003.
And now it turns out that the 7ft tall boxer dubbed ‘The beast from the East‘, not only found a Yeti he also chased after it and bitch-slapped the hairy sasquatch. On various wesbites he’s quoted as saying:
‘…the beast just took my punch and… ran off. At least, I know he is real. I’ve punched him. That’s real.”
The video above is from a Russian news programme which reported the story yesterday, although the entire piece is in Russian they included footage of the Yeti which you can see at the 0.57 mark.
So far there has been no official confirmation that the Yeti actually shouted something in Russian at Valuev before running off into the woods, which translated sounded like:
‘Oh, it’s on mutha fucka! It’s on like fuckin’ Donkey Kong!’
Take that you Bigfoot bastard!
