Heads up, folks! Some scientists are going to do some sciencey stuff tonight which will lead to weirdly colorful clouds. If you see something like that in the sky, it is not:
- A U.F.O.
- The Rapture (finally)
- Buddha descending on a unicorn
- Kanye West’s monstrous ego coming to devour us all
Thank you in advance for not flipping out like these other people, mmmkay…
Citizens of Earth, Do Not Panic If Brilliant, Glowing Clouds Fill the Sky Tonight
You know your crazy relative who’s always suspicious of black SUVs? Quick—block him on Facebook. NASA is scheduled to launch a suborbital rocket from Wallops Island, Virginia, on Wednesday night, and as one of its experiments, it will eject colorful clouds of vapor more than a hundred miles above the ground in order to study ions and neutral particles in the upper atmosphere.
I saved this post as a draft a couple of years ago and never got around to publishing it for some reason. But I remember reading it for the WTF factor, and the more I read the more my eyes rolled. This guy says that dimes magically appear in his house, and his family makes their big decisions based on when they appear…though I can’t imagine how that works. Apparently this is “common around the world”, though he gives zero information about that.
The Mystery of Dimes Appearing From Nowhere and Other Strange Phenomenon
Shortly before his death, my wife began to fear that her dad would not be with us much longer and one day she tearfully admonished him saying, “Dee, don’t you dare die but if you do, give me a sign that you are with me, but please don’t scare me.”
Since his passing, dimes have mysteriously appeared in our home, not just once or twice, but literally dozens of times. …In some cases, we discover dimes in unusual places which could certainly be explained, except their appearance always foretells an event that has a significant monetary or life changing component.
If this guy can wire his house with cameras and actually capture one of these dimes dropping out of thin air, then he’ll have something to talk about. Note that he also just happens to be selling a book called “Nature of Wealth: Discovering the Physics within an Economic System”, so you can continue your magical thinking about magical money magically appearing before you.
Art Bell Returns!
No, he wasn’t in an underground bunker, and he wasn’t abducted! Without much fanfare, the godfather of paranormal late night talk radio has returned to the airwaves.
Ahhh, Art Bell. I have fond memories of staying awake into the wee hours of the morning listening to his five-hour radio show, way back in the mid-90’s. I was in college and coming out of my loathsome conservative phase, discovering more libertarian ideas (hey, it was a start) and enjoying all the ridiculous what-ifs his show offered. I didn’t really believe in the weird shit he had on his show, though some was somewhat plausible. I won’t be able to hear his new show, but that’s OK. I’ve pretty much outgrown the conspiracy/woo-woo stuff and can see it for what it really is: entertainment, not reality.
