As Hurricane Florence slams into Carolina’s coastline The Weather Channel broadcast a truly terrifying, realistic forecast as to the dangerous potential the storm carries.
The graphics team who put this measured and highly effective demonstration of just how life threatening a Hurricane can be pushed the envelope in weather forecasting to amazing effect.
As you can see from the video below even three feet of water in urban areas causes absolute carnage. This kind of information saves lives, preparation is everything.
As the world ignites and turns into a ball of failure flames it’s comforting to know that alien conspiracy theories are still going strong.
However there is a very real element of mystery about this story after the FBI dramatically raided The Sunspot Solar Observatory in New Mexico. Feds swooped in on a Blackhawk helicopter, five days ago, ordering staff out of the facility without any explanation why.
Even local law enforcement were bewildered by the closure stating: “The FBI is refusing to tell us what’s going on.There was a Blackhawk helicopter, a bunch of people around antennas and work crews on towers but nobody would tell us anything.”
The Observatory’s sole purpose is to examine the Sun but since the raid it’s been banned from doing so and its official website just reads closed until further notice. But where is the alien conspiracy in all this mess? Well many believe the federal swoop is clear evidence the Observatory has accidentally uncovered evidence of extraterrestrial life, claiming that staff at the observatory saw something they weren’t supposed to or have even made contact with an alien lifeform. Other theories on the internet, (God bless the Internet), claim the shutdown is due to an impending massive solar flare which will fry the world’s electricity supplies or that a foreign government has hacked into the observatory and is using it to spy on America.
Whatever the paranoid explanations might be one fact remains, the Feds raided and forcibly closed an observatory and have yet to give any explanation why and until they do conspiracy theories will abound.
If only. In truth this is actually one of four clever little videos with some dark arts expertise added, to make various scenes from the John Hugh’s Christmas classic Home Alone blood soaked and more realism.
If you’ve ever wondered what the real physical damage might be to the Wet Bandits after being pummeled by Kevin’s fiendish booby traps, then wonder no more.

Google Earth is an amazing application and it’s used by enthusiasts all over the world who spend hours, days, weeks and months scouring our planet for the weird and wonderful.
Many are now claiming that a mythical sea creature, just like The Kraken, may have been captured by Google in the Southern Ocean. The video above shows you that by entering a set of coordinates, (63° 2’56.73″S 60°57’32.38″W), into Google Earth you will sea what appears to be a massive unidentified object breaking the water’s surface. Many are theorising that it could be a gigantic squid just like The Kraken.
Or it could just be a cluster of rocks.
Here’s a compilation of the very best UFO sightings caught on camera throughout the month of April.

Like our Grandfather used to say: ‘Never underestimate the stupidity of people.’
An investigation has been launched by Gwinett County Schools in Georgia, (story becomes less surprising following that information), after some mouth breather with a teaching qualification thought it would be a good idea to pose the above featured homework maths problems for students. Of course being 2012, the year of pushing the envelope, the teacher responsible used this opportunity to ‘reinforce social studies lessons through maths‘ which is why slavery and racial beatings naturally became the main themes.
What’s interesting is that at no point so far in the investigation has there been any talk of the teacher either being fired or suspended.
