For many years, conspiracies about what the government have done and what they have carried out have grown arms and legs. What starts out as a disgruntled comment in the pub from one person soon turns into a blog post claiming ‘sources’ and using haggard footage and extremely specific circumstances to try and sell the idea of a conspiracy.
Sometimes, though, the “tin foil hat brigade” have a point. One incident where they may have had a point comes from the Lynmouth Flood Conspiracy Theory. This is a theory that there was potential military experimentatioroyaln and involvement – never admitted to, of course – on 15th-16th August 1952 in which a ridiculous storm created [...]
For most of us, the world of the occult and the “strange” is something that we simply avoid. Lots of humanity tend to stick to the idea that things outside of the ordinary are best saved for movies and for scaring children at Halloween. Unfortunately, not everything that we hear or read about that seems a bit out there is out there – sometimes, it’s more authentic than you could ever have feared.
One such story that seems to have grown an incredible amount of legs in the last few years is that of the Slender Man. Whilst the mythology of Slendermen has been around for many years and is built into just about every generation as a scare story, the actual development of what the [...]
As you will no doubt be aware, on 8th March 2014 a Malaysian Airlines aircraft, Flight 370, went missing. In one of the most bizarre – and tragic – stories of the year, the disappearance of an aircraft containing more than 230 people on-board was one which certainly shook around the world, reverberating for all to see. The massive tragedy that came from such an aircraft situation is something that you do not see too often today, such is the general power and reliability of the aircraft that we use today – but something seemed off here.
Flight 370 simply vanished – although it was estimated by the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Najib Razak, to have crashed into the Indian [...]
For many years, one of the most intriguing tales out there has been humanity and our contact with aliens. With so much out there it’s almost impossible to deny – for example, there have been numerous governments and former administrators around the world who have effectively “disclosed” – it’s no surprise that the variety as well as the severity of the stories has grown exponentially over the years. This usually comes down to one thing for most people, however – the fact that our top brass are well in the know about the alien races we’ve come across. Whether you are talking about the Anunnaki, the Nordics or anything else that has been mentioned throughout the various studies that [...]
Throughout recent history, the United States has probably been at the centre of more conspiracy theories and alleged cover-ups than anywhere else. Depending on how far down the scale you are ready to go, the Americans have done everything from blowing up their own harbors and towers to fixing stock markets and assassinating their own President. The amount of different ideas, theories and downright madcap stories out there that comes back around to the United States government is quite staggering – but one of the most perplexing, of course, is the “Philadelphia Experiment”.
Its right up there with things like UFO sightings and Area 51 conspiracies – it’s so out there [...]
In the summer of 1947, either late June or the first week of July, a New Mexico ranch foreman named Mac Brazel reported finding strange debris in an open field near the town of Roswell. An intriguing narrative developed rapidly: The material may be from a crashed alien craft, called a “flying disk” or “flying saucer,” now known as a UFO.
The U.S. government soon claimed it was a downdeed high-level weather balloon and dismissed the alien crash story. Over the years, the events have become known as “The Roswell UFO Incident,” or simply “Roswell.”
In the 1970s, interest revived in the [...]
For anyone who is into a bit of conspiracy theory, it’s not too hard to find some good source material in the modern world. Conspiracies exist in every single avenue of life these days, with people from all over the world holding various views and opinions on things that “must” have happened. Conspiracies have, obviously, blown up since the internet and especially since the advent of things like blogging and social media. It gives people the chance to present the truth or various facts to the public in a manner they never would have been able to in the past.
Additionally, though, it also gives people the chance to provide the rest of the world with a chance to hear the [...]
We are learning more and more about the benefits and functions of Vitamin D each year and there have been several studies conducted that try to discover whether Vitamin D can play a role in either causing or aggravating depression.
I have always suffered with depression, particularly in the Winter months when I don’t get much sunlight. Seasonal Affective Disorder (or as it’s know, SAD) is a common phenomenon that millions of people suffer from and the further away from the equator you go, the more likely you are to find cases of this disorder in the Winter months. While [...]
I clearly remember watching the original “The War of the Worlds” on TV as a kid. My face turned white and my stomach sank to my shoes as the first alien craft emerged from the pod. I was convinced there were probably aliens OUTSIDE OUR HOUSE RIGHT NOW.
It was that outstanding type of fear that made movies so special when you were younger – you get that great fear of every possible fictional idea being played out in front of you, giving you a taster of what it would really be like. As a child, it was easy to get into that kind of gripping suspense with a movie and really make it come alive and play a key part in your thoughts for the rest of the night, and week!
It was [...]
Magnesium, a simple metal you may think at first. You may have memories of burning it in science class back in school. You will be surprised to learn that magnesium is one of the most important minerals that your body uses – it works in over 300+ reactions and processes in your body. You may also be surprised to learn that while reading this article right now, you are most probably deficient in it.
The truth is, over the past 100 years we have been getting less and less of this essential mineral in our diets because of over farming and large scale farming using fertilisers with no magnesium content. The soils our vegetables grow in [...]
Look around you. Of the next ten people you see, it’s likely one of them believes the world is coming to an end on Dec 21, 2012 (Reuters). And there is a good chance they are right.
Why Dec 21, 2012? That’s the day the Mayan “long calendar” returns to zero. The last time it did that was 3114 B.C. The Mayan calendar returning to zero is considered to be a doomsday prophecy.
But how? What catastrophe will take place to wipe us off the face of the earth? There are plenty of ways we could meet our collective demise! Let’s look at the top five most likely ways the world will end in 2012.Pandemic
A pandemic is a very real threat that could spread quickly and impact [...]
Gene Cernan was the last human to step off the Moon when Apollo 17 set off on their return trip to Earth in December of 1972. From the time Neil Armstrong made the first famous step on the lunar surface on July 20, 1969, until December 14, 1972, when Mr. Cernan, Jack Schmitt, and Ronald Evans returned to Earth, twelve different men walked on the moon in 6 successful moon landings.
And we’ve never been back. Why? I believe I have the answer. First, let’s consider alternative theories like politics and science.Politics
Some say that the entire Apollo program was the United States’ effort to prove superiority to the Soviets in the “Space Race,” a technological and [...]
Two billion people around the world watched live on TV, and hundreds of thousands packed the streets and malls of London to watch the “Wedding of the Century”—a real-life fantasy pulled straight from the storybooks–Prince William marrying his fiancée Kate Middleton!
There hasn’t been anything like it since the last “Wedding of the Century”, when Prince William’s father, Prince Charles, married the young, shy Lady Spencer 30 years ago on Jul 29, 1981. Many young girls who swooned to the romance of that ceremony, with Diana’s legendary 25 foot train, joined their own daughters to revel in this new chapter in the ever unfolding story of the Royal Family. And (perhaps more [...]
Online social network sites such as Facebook have revolutionized the way people interact with each other. However, these sites pose problems to society, and raise questions around family interactions, social skills and privacy.Good Luck with School, Son – I Have to Milk This Cow

So I’m somewhat of a worrier when it comes to my health. I’ve been in and out of hospital (mainly checking myself in) with various mystery conditions ranging from tick bites (the possibility of contracting Lyme Disease) to tingling nerve sensations all over my body.
I’m on various medications for my anxiety, depression and slight psychosis; I’m perfectly mentally stable…however my mind does wander, usually on to my health.
A few years ago I noticed an outbreak of these little red spots all over my body. Immediately I was worried, thinking I had some exotic disease or some part of my body was failing. I saw many dermatologists, chief [...]
