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 [...]
Listening intently to a steady stream of static, suddenly you hear a series of low tones followed by a robotic woman’s voice:
“Yankee… Hotel… Foxtrot… Yankee… Hotel… Foxtrot… Yankee… Hotel… Foxtrot…”
The static continues as a sheet of white noise in the background. The woman continues:
These strange series of words and numbers are not the crazy ramblings of a demented person. They are actual broadcasts from real “numbers stations.”
Numbers stations are shortwave radio transmitters that send out a constant stream of numbers, letters, words or song lyrics, all delivered by [...]
In 2009, Universal Pictures released The Fourth Kind, a thriller that follows the life of psychologist Dr. Abigail Emily “Abby” Tyler, who lives in Nome, Alaska with her husband. After he mysteriously passes away, she resolves to continue his clinical research with clients suffering from insomnia.
She begins to use hypnosis on select patients as part of their treatment. The hypnosis reveals that several of them have had very similar experiences. They each report waking up at 333 a.m. and seeing a white owl outside their window. Shortly after that, they hear violent sounds outside their room followed by someone, or something, dragging them out of their bed against their will as [...]
Remember when you questioned your mum about one of the unfair restrictions she was placing on your 8-year-old life and she would say, “It’s for your own good.”
Her clipped tone added silently, “and that’s the end of it.”
When it comes to the US government covering up UFO’s and alien abductions, they are acting like your mum. Ever since the incident in Roswell, New Mexico in 1947, they’ve covered up the existence of aliens among us.
Consider the comments of Edgar Mitchell, an Apollo 14 astronaut in a conversation with WPTV, a West Palm Beach TV station. Tim Malloy, reporter, told the home viewers, “He says the government he served in the military, and as an [...]
No one would have believed in the early years of the 21st century that our world was being watched by intelligences greater than our own; that as men busied themselves about their various concerns, *they* observed and studied, the way a man with a microscope might scrutinize the creatures that swarm and multiply in a drop of water. With infinite complacency, men went to and fro about the globe, confident of our empire over this world. Yet across the gulf of space, intellects vast and cool and unsympathetic regarded our planet with envious eyes and slowly, and surely, drew their plans against us. – The War of the Worlds starring Tom Cruise.
Many years ago, I heard a [...]
