Interesting news and articles - March 31th, 203


Happy Easter!  Now here's some articles I read last week that I found interesting.

Archaeology

Pluto's Gate Uncovered in Turkey --- From the article:
"A 'gate to hell' has emerged from ruins in southwestern Turkey, Italian archaeologists have announced."  It's a cave with vapors so deadly that animals were said to die instantly when they enter it.  In ancient times, it was said only the eunuchs of Cybele could enter the gate unharmed.  Of course, humans know how to hold their breath when necessary though.  Even today when the excavations were being done, birds who flew to the warm opening of the cave died.

History

Turin Shroud 'is not a medieval forgery' --- They can't seem to make up their mind on this.  It seems they just keep going back and forth on whether it is medieval or ancient.

Refrigerator Shaped UFO Causes Odd Car Troubles in Wisconsin --- Actually, the witness just said it was refrigerator sized.  There could be a difference in size and shape.

Is it a UFO? Pilot baffled by object in sky over Port Aransas --- Considering no one noticed it at the time the photo was taken and was only see later when reviewing the photographs, my guess is it is just some camera artifact or glitch, or some kind of reflection.

Other topics of interest...

23 Insane Things You Should Know About Snack Foods --- The most telling thing to me in this whole article is the executives that don't eat or drink their own products.  That probably says more about how bad some of that stuff is than the facts about them themselves.

Obama's Secret Service alien? --- I'm not sure if this video is supposed to be a satire or not...but it's a satire as far as I'm concerned.  But in all seriousness...the guy does look a little bit like Voldemort in the video.

'Monsanto Protection Act': 5 Terrifying Things To Know About The HR 933 Provision --- I suspected when the media started hyping the gay marriage issue that it was probably to hide something else that was also going on.  "The Monsanto Protection Act" was it.  Also see this.

Police restrain crowd from taking food after supermarket eviction --- Absurd.  Don't ever believe the lies that there isn't enough food in the world to feed everyone.  Things like this are the real cause of hunger in the world.  "There is enough in the world for everyone's need, but not enough for everyone's greed."  There's also not enough when things like this are allowed to happen.

It’s the cold, not global warming, that we should be worried about --- Also see this, this, and this.
