Cryptozoology toys!

The MOTHMAN looks cheesy.

Oh, who am I kidding. I'd put every single one of them on my desk.
And I'd probably play with them too.
Maybe make some stop-motion-animation shorts with them. Like
Robot Chicken.

Mothman: I'm blue, om-da-da-da-di-om-da-do-dah
Sasquatch: I'm do for a waxing. Got a date with this hot Abominable snow-girl.
Chupacabra: Tu quiero taco bell.

Yeah, I'm lame.

Did Black holes form before galaxies?

Um. After reading this article, my head spun a few times and then I thought: "Black holes must spit sh*t out more than suck things in. if black holes are giant teleportation devices?" ---Sucking in galaxies and spitting them out on the other side?

Or am I just too dumb to get any of this?

The Natural History of Unicorns

I can't help but wonder if there were UNICORNS (cuz there are!), that perhaps they may have been hunted to extinction by stupid people who believe stupid things. I mean, you see a strange creature in your back yard and you kill it, and then you drink some water from its horn because you're weird. Next thing ya know, your canker sores are gone, so you tell the neighbors. Now, this creature has relatives roaming the backyards of all your neighbors, so it gets easy for your neighbors to kill one of their own, and so on and so on. Until every dumb, gullible person kills off every little fabulous, weird creature.

Yup. I think that's how it went down.

Loren Coleman interview @ The Phoenix

I don't care what anyone says...I still believe in Unicorns and Mermaids. I'm still waiting for someone to prove to me they DON'T exist. I won't hold my breath.

The Viking Tower...

On saturday I saw the most curious thing: The Viking Tower. I had heard many detailed stories about it. That the Chinese built it, or the Norse, or Benedict Arnold. To tell you the truth, it looks like no Windmill I've ever seen, and I
have spent the day looking all over the web for similar ones.

It's supported on 8 pillars with 8 arcs and inside (if you can get close enough), are these curious little portholes and windows that are completely covered from the outside. Also, there appears to be a fireplace in there. Seriously.

There are also ledges on the outside that may have supported beams. That is the concensus anyway.

An excavation was carried out in the late 1940's and Colonial clues were found, like a shoe print and it was also carbon dated. Now, the carbon dating gets me because I thought carbon dating rocks was a no-no. But apparently they did the mortar. So, many of the peeps who studied the tower believe it was built in colonial times. However, there is evidence of a structure in China that looks just like it, again lending a bit of speculation in the direction of Chinese settlers in the Americas.
It has been said that there are runes on the stones, but I didn't see anything. I had I know, I would have looked harder. All I saw was a beautifully elaborate structure with no rhyme or reason to it. Let everyone else argue about it. I just enjoyed looking at it.
If you're ever in Newport, Rhode Island, go to Touro Park and check it out.
