This is ludicrous in the extreme. The Smithsonian has lost my trust for good.

Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last

As if we need more evidence that Smithsonian magazine is among the vanguard in the U.S. government’s ongoing program of deceit in the Earhart disappearance, the following is submitted for your information.  (Boldface and italics emphasis mine throughout.)

On Aug. 2 a reader sent me the link to theSmithsonian’sJuly 31, 2019 screed,Why the Much-Publicized Mission to Find Amelia Earhart’s Plane Is Likely to Come Up Empty,subheaded, “The explorer who discovered the ‘Titanic’ is searching for the lost aviator. A Smithsonian curator doesn’t think he’ll find it.”

Here we have the incompetent advising the accomplished and misguided.  Dorothy Cochran, the Smithsonian’s Air and Space curator, has taken over from Tom Crouch as that institution’s selected mouthpiece about all things Earhart, but this is the same gibberish we heard from Crouch, and will continue to hear from the Smithsonian until Judgment Day.  We know that the famed…

Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last

Another July has nearly passed, a month when, for decades, two things have been certain.  Many will flock to Atchison, Kansas for the annual Amelia Earhart Festival love-in on her July 24 birthday, and a new dose of recycled snake oil purporting to solve the so-called “Earhart Mystery” as dictated to media stenographers by Ric Gillespie of TIGHAR, the only “internationally recognized expert” to whom anyone should listen, will be injected into a culture sodden with lies about Amelia’s fate.  We’ve been watching this revolting circus of endless deceit for 30 years now, with no relief in sight.

Last year Gillespie brought cadaver dogsto Nikumaroro to search for the remains of the lost fliers.  Words fail to express how utterly ridiculous this idea was, once one understands how many people lived and died there since the late 1930s, none of them Earhart or Fred Noonan!  Even more ludicrous, the U.S. and world media reported this absurd spectacle as if it were a serious attempt to find the lost fliers, while an ignorant, incurious public…

Hey readers, if you are into Amelia as I am and are insulted by the constant line of bull# emanating from officialdom then this man will save your mind some stress by presenting the truth. Pay attention…

Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last

Lest those who might have thought the latest chapter of the continuing Amelia Earhart disinformation campaign had come to a neat and tidy close with theJuly 11 report fromThe Guardianonline that the photograph of the dock at Jaluit in the Marshall Islands had been found in a Japanese travel book, we now have another, not unexpected, loose end. You might recall that The Guardian reported that “The image was part of aJapanese-language travelogueabout the South Seasthat was published almost two years before Earhart disappeared.”

“Does it get any worse than this?” I wrote in myJuly 12reviewof the latest History Channelpropaganda effort.“Amelia Earhart: The Lost Evidence.” “If the report is true, whatever the photo claims that began with NBC’s Wednesday, July 5 promotion barrage, are now entirely destroyed, discredited and defunct.” 

I didn’t need a report from a Japanese blogger to convince me that the claims made by Les Kinney,

Peace.

Well, it simply must be “done,” right?

This image appeared on my tumblr dashboard courtesy of a poster of interest called the weird wide web.

Naturally I would like it to be so, but it is just here cuz I like the picture!

I do seem to have a soft spot for unicorns, I will say that. I remember some teaser utoobian clip from Yurrop somewhere (Germany?) a few years ago that was also nicely done.

Enjoy…
Peace.

Well, It IS What He Did…

This is actually true, according to my limited knowledge of the official story.

And assuming for a moment that the story is true … that the dude did this, well, all I can say to that is that there exists a crying need for this activity to happen again.

And as soon as possible, too.

It has been said for years that money is the problem.

Even the very concept of it, as far as I’m concerned.

So anyway this image appeared on my facebook newsfeed today and I thought you might like it.

A hero this man is.

From the minute I first saw this, way back when it happened, I have loved this guy for doing what so many wish they could. I was appalled when they put him in jail while the war criminal got to write his memoir… Pfft.

The Holland County, Michigan UFO Incident (1994):

This collection of audio recordings is refreshing, I find, especially the last two, which are of calls between the weather service and the 911 dispatcher. Very cool. Seems legit…

Whoa! This seems legit.

Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qWznA3… to see a better lit view of the room.

This is a video of me as a little kid (3 years old), on my rocking horse. My dad left a camera on to catch who ever or whatever was playing with the rocking horse after many times of trying and finding nothing. Its a really old video we just recently got it converted to dvd so sorry for the horrible quality.

I found this today in a thread on ATS from 2009, someone had replied to it and I am glad they did!

Here is the original post:

Finally, I can share this video with everyone. It dates back to 1992 but just became digital as far as I know. For years, this recording of an apparent ghost riding my nephew’s rocking horse was misplaced and in a not so digital format.

When my nephew was young, his grandmother found an old rocking horse at a garage sale in Colorado and sent it to him. Late at night, his mother and father would hear the rocking horse squeaking. In an attempt to “catch” their young son sneaking into the room and riding his rocking horse they set up a video camera. The camera captured something else at play as you will see.

I also find it interesting that my nephew asks his father, “Who’s that” when he is riding the horse before leaving the room. The “other” rocking horse rider begins about 2:14 into the video or so. This video has long been a topic of conversation around campfires when the ghost stories come out. I look forward to hearing your thoughts. I think it’s amazing…..

I am leaning toward this being real. I’ve been bitten before by this sort of video but I am going to risk it again with this one.

There are a lot of replies pushing the string/fishing line theory, but I have to go with the impression that strings attached and then pulled wouldn’t work as shown. I could be wrong, surely, but… it looks real. I also do not think that either poster would fake it although admittedly that is an emotional reaction.

Fascinating!

Peace.

3 Missing 411 interviews in one, David Paulides at his best!

Hopefully this will work. Video-wise I mean. That URL tho.

Didn’t! – fixed it. Silly app.

Mr Paulides is currently one of my favorite Forteans since he does not mix any woo into the story, which, really, is the way it should be.

This is the Whitley Strieber Dreamland show, well three in a row hence the title. I find this topic fascinating and I am always riveted no matter what length it is.
I have not been able to acquire the books yet but it is desired mucho.
You will not be disappointed in this one and Whitley gives some great questions.

Something profoundly strange is happening and it is proving to be frightening on many levels.

Enjoy and Peace.

I like yowies. Really. Don’t know why—they just trigger some level of  excitement.

And for some reason the place where this post’s featured encounter happened, the Pilliga Scrub, does the same! Odd, I know. It’s the only location I know of where fighting union workers called a truce and worked together to get the word out to help folks avoid dirt naps.

Perhaps growing up where and when I did is the reason that action and reaction hold so much power in my mind. Seriously. That says it all for me and I am old, crusty and jaded.

This report is long but paced so that it doesn’t matter. Choc-a-bloc with details, enthusiasm and great visuals from the story being told.

The video comes as well from a group I have so far found to be true and proper in their integrity and goals.

Anyway, enjoy and,

Sorry to be absent so long… things are increasingly strange ‘round these parts. Last week my alternate therapist gave me a homework assignment to write a paragraph or two on a topic of my choosing. I thought many thoughts and decided to write a little on thoughts about dreams. Wrote it yesterday while one of the aides was seeing to my lieges needs. She read it today and pronounced it good and to her one line was even deemed “powerful.” Gosh! So I thought I’d share.

Here goes…

Oh dear… a brief one is needed… on what, though? I don’t know. Ah! Dreams…

Last night, or was it this morning, I was thinking about dreams. What are they? Who are the people in them? Most seem to believe that the people in our dreams are those we have seen while awake, even if they are total strangers, because the subconscious records and stashes away literally everything that happens to us. It might be true, that. It might not.

I have heard that dreams are our mind trying to sort things out. I remember reading that Einstein’s Big Idea had come to him in a dream. That phrase “… it came to me in a dream,” is ubiquitous. And for the Aborigines of Australia, well, they have their Dreamtime, a major chunk of their past when things were apparently quite different.

But, as in most things, no one really knows. That’s good in a way, as it makes us think so that we will hopefully be able to sort it out someday.

I only remember my dreams for a few minutes at best. I find that unfortunate, as some of them are pretty good. There have been a few cases where I will remember a few seconds of a dream long term, but it is exceedingly rare. The only one I can think of as I write this involved a person I do know saying something I knew to be true but was in denial about. That certainly reinforces the dreams are about things that concern us camp. That said, there are a lot of camps.

Some dreams seem to have nothing to do with the waking world and are more of an adventure into the unknown. Odd, these dreams.

I like it when I can go back to sleep after my bi-hourly nature wake up, pick up on a dream and continue on with it. I think that that is pretty darn cool and raises even more questions as to just what dreams really are.

I did note that there was a long period wherein I had not dreamt at all, but, upon cessation of smoking cigarettes, I once again could experience dreams. That was a wonderful side effect of quitting. I highly recommend it. Especially if life is not so good… dreams are something to look forward to, even if they remain unremembered.

Years ago, many of them, I think I had at least one or perhaps two of those ‘vivid’ dreams… dreams wherein you know that you’re dreaming and can control what happens in the story line. I would like that to happen again. I would like that very much.

Due to my affinity for things of an inexplicable nature, I am sometimes of the opinion that dreams are a look into other dimensions or alternate universes. I like that idea, find it rather exciting, in fact and find nothing that says it cannot be. There are such places, after all and things like psychedelics can let the mind access them… perhaps in dreams the mind can do it unaided. I note that I never see any “cool stuff,” though, so perhaps there are a multitude of destinations where we can wind up.

I would probably want to stay there.

Ah well… food for thought, things to ponder, eh, what?

Peace.

Wow. Life has been getting more surreal on an almost daily basis. For the lack of stuff to read that this has caused you all, I apologize. There is less time available and time management has not been a strong suit. But I stumble forth.

Auntie’s in home hospice now. Regulars will be able to twig the significance of that. Coming upstairs to write and find things happens less often and to be here it must do as I am not equipped with a smart mobile or laptop.

Fabulously silly new governmental regulatory flaws have been frequently revealed which have left me simultaneously bemused and disappointed. There are non-governmental issues at work as well with obviously unvetted and unprofessional firms in the hired caregiver sector. It’s rude andtakes advantage but it’s not as bad as it could be, so there’s that, I guess.

One of the ambulance crew, obviously experienced, once told me, “I don’t like “I guess”.” Wish I’d not had to find out about the truth of his conviction for myself. Good man, that fellow.

This machine was showing it’s age, too and was down for nearly a week all told. And I mean seriously down. More of that to come I’m sure.

But I do get to see some long lost loved ones who’s company I am enjoying rather a lot. Friends are there as well. They make the banality and the angst a bit easier to see roll by.

Okay this has taken way too long and I best get downstairs.

Peace.

Seriously! It has been officially reported! And here as well.

But wait, aren’t we firmly in the grip of the 21st century? I do believe so… One might think that we’d’ve gotten our own anatomy down pat. I guess not! Ha! Sigh.

This is especially intriguing since this new part is a ligament in the knee. There are, after all, quite a lot of knee surgeries on the books.

Although having said that, it would appear that a French fellow got suspicious back in 1879 and put forth the idea that this ligament existed. Didn’t go on to prove it, though.

new ligament!

S1 – What’s that gross-looking thing in the picture up there? Oh, just a newly discovered part of the human body, no big deal. Two surgeons at University Hospitals Leuven in Belgium have found and named a new ligament in the knee, which they dubbed the anterolateral ligament, or ALL.

S2 – Despite successful ACL repair surgery and rehabilitation, some patients with ACL-repaired knees continue to experience so-called ‘pivot shift’, or episodes where the knee ‘gives way’ during activity. For the last four years, orthopaedic surgeons Dr Steven Claes and Professor Dr Johan Bellemans have been conducting research into serious ACL injuries in an effort to find out why. Their starting point: an 1879 article by a French surgeon that postulated the existence of an additional ligament located on the anterior of the human knee.

As has been noted here by Rewey in a forum thread about this find, the part seems to have been illustrated in textbooks for a good long while now. It‘s just been simply falsely classed as being a part of a ligament it appears to connect to. No one noticed that it doesn’t really do that. Except that French guy. Now that is odd.

In Rewey’s reply he says:

lateral collateral ligaments… when I look at this image below, it refers to the lateral collateral ligaments – as in plural. It seems to show the LCL as reaching down in two separate strands, hence why maybe it’s referred to in plural form. This seems like exactly what is shown as the ‘new’ tendon in the photos in the OP.

In the pic below, one strand of the LCL joins to the outer top edge of the tibia, and one to the outer top edge of the fibula. I think the photo in the OP shows the same thing – it’s just that the tibia and fibula in the photo are still joined by tissue and cartilage, and therefore maybe it isn’t as clear?

I think this seems less a matter of discovering a NEW ligament, and more along the lines of realising that it performs a slightly different function to what we assumed, and therefore have given it another name?

Seems legit.

Peace.

Ah ha! The weirdness continues!

Sploid Gizmodo – 11/07/13 — The object in these photographs captured by Hubble is not a comet. It’s something that no astronomer has ever seen before, according to NASA: An asteroid with six comet-like tails that isn’t moving like a comet and it’s not made of ice. It’s just hanging up there, rotating like a crazy space spider.

According to lead investigator David Jewitt of the University of California at Los Angeles, “we were literally dumbfounded when we saw it [in the solar system’s asteroid belt] We were completely knocked out.”

NASA says that “unlike all other known asteroids, which appear simply as tiny points of light, this asteroid, designated P/2013 P5, resembles a rotating lawn sprinkler. Astronomers are puzzled over the asteroid’s unusual appearance.” Read more…

A lot of discoveries out there these days! The more, the merrier, right? Keep ‘em coming!

Some seem to think it’s from a collision. Or rotational breakup. Or pressure from the Sun. Or something. NASA itself doesn’t seem to know what to make of it at the moment.

Good.

Discovery! Investigation! Science!

Peace.

Well now, this is mighty unusual…

Science Daily – Oct. 9, 2013 — An international team of astronomers has discovered an exotic young planet that is not orbiting a star. This free-floating planet, dubbed PSO J318.5-22, is just 80 light-years away from Earth and has a mass only six times that of Jupiter. The planet formed a mere 12 million years ago — a newborn in planet lifetimes.

It was identified from its faint and unique heat signature by the Pan-STARRS 1 (PS1) wide-field survey telescope on Haleakala, Maui. Follow-up observations using other telescopes in Hawaii show that it has properties similar to those of gas-giant planets found orbiting around young stars. And yet PSO J318.5-22 is all by itself, without a host star.

“We have never before seen an object free-floating in space that that looks like this. It has all the characteristics of young planets found around other stars, but it is drifting out there all alone,” explained team leader Dr. Michael Liu of the Institute for Astronomy at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. “I had often wondered if such solitary objects exist, and now we know they do.”

Read more…

The last line above from Dr. Liu gives me a smile and some hope. The sense of wonder is so important to us. I am glad it’s still out there. Really.

If it can be imagined, it’s out there. Things that can’t be imagined are no doubt out there, too. That’s exciting.

So many questions. Did it form out there? Around a star? If so, what happened to it? Maybe it’s a Dyson Sphere! Might it have life? I bet it does.

We need to build a way to go there and see. That should be our planetary goal.

Peace.

Boffins Baffled!

LOL!

Sorry, I’m OK now.

Hehe. It’s just that I love when the boffins are baffled. Especially in astronomy. There are so many things we have no idea about. Models and paradigms are created based on the data at hand and are seemingly ingrained as fact in the minds of many. But they are not facts, they are merely good ideas given what information is available and people’s interpretation of it.

Planet Kepler-78b, a rocky planet much like our own, has just been discovered orbiting a star that is also much like our own.  It is however, so different that astronomers simply do not understand how it can possibly exist. I like that.

Sky Mania – October 30, 2013 — “This planet is a complete mystery,” says astronomer David Latham of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics (CfA). “We don’t know how it formed or how it got to where it is today. What we do know is that it’s not going to last forever.” Colleague Dimitar Sasselov said: “Kepler-78b is going to end up in the star very soon, astronomically speaking. It couldn’t have formed in place because you can’t form a planet inside a star. It couldn’t have formed further out and migrated inward, because it would have migrated all the way into the star. This planet is an enigma.” Dr Ken Rice, of the University of Edinburgh said: “Although this planet is clearly too hot to support life, it is still very exciting to now be discovering planets that are not only similar in mass to the Earth, but also similar in composition.”

Read more…

The main difficulty is that the orbit is only a million miles from the star. A year on it lasts a quick 8 and a half hours. The rocks at the surface are pretty toasty and would be much like permanently molten lava. It is thought that stars shrink as they age, so the mere presence of this object where it sits seems impossible with current thought.

And yet… there it is.

Awesome.

Peace.
