U.S.-Russian team tries to set ballooning record

Two Eagles Balloon Team: Troy Bradley of New Mexico and Leonid Tiukhtyaev of Russia set off from Saga, Japan, shortly before 6:30 am JST Sunday, Jan. 25, 2015, on their quest to pilot their helium-filled balloon from Japan in a bid to reach North America and break two major records en route. They want to beat a distance record of 5,208 miles (8,381 km) and a flight-duration record of 137 hours set in 1978 (AP).
Balloons over Buddhist P/Bagan, Burma
ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico - The pilots of a helium-filled balloon on a daring flight across the Pacific Ocean drew closer to North America as they attempt to break two world records.

Accomplished balloon pilots Troy Bradley of Albuquerque and Leonid Tiukhtyaev of Russia are expected to cross into North America sometime Thursday evening and are on course to break a distance record that has stood for more than three decades. They're also looking to break the flight-duration record set in 1978.

They still have a ways to go before completing the journey, however. They are planning to cross over the Canadian Rockies and land somewhere in the northern U.S., possibly Montana or North Dakota, on Saturday morning.

No one has crossed the Pacific Ocean in a gas balloon since 1981. But to break the distance record, the balloonists need exceed the current records by 1 percent to claim a new world record. That means they need to travel 5,260 miles to break the mark.

Another important record is the duration of the flight, set in 1978 when Ben Abruzzo, Maxie Anderson, and Larry Newman made the first trans-Atlantic balloon flight. That record of 137 hours in the air in a traditional gas balloon is considered the "holy grail" of ballooning achievements. The pilots on the current flight are at about 100 hours. More

Nazi E.T. base now involves U.S.
Tonight on Coast to Coast with George Noory three hours of the four-hour show beginning at 11:00 pm Pacific (2:00 am Eastern) are Linda Moulton Howe addressing "high strangeness." The first question is, What are all the loud booms? — Part 7: Mysterious Loud Booms in at Least 15 States Since Jan. 1st.
“Just suddenly, out of the blue, came this enormous, deep boom. It shook the windows, shook the whole house, and the floor. It was notable for its power and its resonance.” - Todd Seelye, retired college music professor, Cedar Falls, Iowa

The second question is, What did the Germans know about the South Pole  and an E.T. base in Antarctica? They founded down there called New Swabia/Neuschwabenland and were keenly interested in alien artifacts all over the world, particularly in Tibet, Egypt, the Middle East, and Central Asia. The Hollow Earth Theory also comes into play with forbidden airspace over the poles and shielding of the large openings to enter the planet. — U.S. Navy flight engineer saw silver flying discs and a large entrance to an alleged E.T. base in Antarctica.

“It is a ball about the width of a human hair, which has filamentous life on the outside and a gooey biological material oozing from its centre. We were stunned when X-ray analysis showed that the sphere is made up mainly of titanium, with a trace of vanadium. One theory is it was sent to Earth by some unknown civilization in order to continue seeding the planet with life.... This seems never before to have been found on Earth (by humans).” - Milton Wainwright, Ph.D., U.K.'s Univ. of Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology. 

Prof. Milton Wainwright, Ph.D., U. K.'s University of Buckingham Centre for Astrobiology, has been launching balloons to around 17 miles (27 km) above the Earth's surface to sample stratosphere debris coming in from space. The above 10-micron-diameter sphere spewing material left an impact crater on a balloon. "The impact crater proves that the sphere was incoming to Earth from space. An organism coming from Earth would not be traveling fast enough when it fell back to Earth to cause such damage," Prof. Wainwright told the U. K. January 25, 2015, Sunday Express. "For the moment, we are content to say that the life-containing titanium sphere came from space, possibly from a comet." But no one has an answer for what the "gooey biological liquid oozing" from the titanium sphere is. Photomicrograph courtesy Prof. Wainwright, Univ. of Buckingham.

Why do young couples get divorced? (video)

(Emma Rosberg) Yolandi Visser and Ninja, the core of Die Antwoord, sing love duet "Strunk"

Maybe marriage was a bad, bad idea.
Yolandi: Ah, love, love, love...makes you feel so trippy like you're stoned and drunk at the same time, strunk, 24/7, baba.

Ninja: You make me feel like everyday is Saturday, my friend. Go to sleep, wake up, it's Saturday again. I'm busy, man, I'm going around the world, got me f'd up by this pretty little girl. And all I really want to do is get on a plane and come and visit you. Fly close to the sun, Jesus, what's going on?

We didn't plan on a baby; now we're stuck.
CHORUS: OMG, I'm so strunk, stone drunk, oh f---! Help me, lord, I'm so strunk, f'd up, love drunk.

Yolandi: I'm zoning out in my room all alone staring at the f'ing telephone. Is this for real, or are you just playing games? Haven't heard from you in three whole days. You told me you want me to be your girl, look into my eyes and promise me the world. Tell me is this really true romance, or are you just trying to get in my pants? Party tonight, everybody's going on telling me we got to go. Just close the door, switch off the light, leave me alone. I don't want to f'n go. F--- your pinky-promise, playboy, cause you steal my heart and then you go, just leave me so desperately lonely.

Ninja: Love lifts you up like an eagle, baby girl. You're so cool, you're so next, you're so natural, you're so sex.

Yolandi: Love f's you up like an evil angel. You so cool, cool as ice but, playboy, you tell f'ing lies. Chorus.

On a Reddit thread, hundreds of people disclosed why they divorced within a year of getting married
  • Reddit asked users to explain why they divorced before a year of marriage.
  • The site received 200 responses from people reeling from premature splits.
  • Cocaine, affairs, religion, and wife beating -- the posts are shocking.
Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, and Kim Kardashian all had famously short-lived marriages.
Although the duration of their relationships, which lasted from a matter of days to just a few months, may be shocking, the reasons for their splits come as no surprise -- unlike the ream of depressing admissions submitted to Reddit.

Advice on how to date after a divorce (related)
A post on the online community website asked users to share the reasons their marriage had ended with a year of their wedding and it was met with a shocking deluge of terrifying marriage stories.
On a Reddit thread, hundreds of people disclosed why they divorced within a year of getting married. From simply drifting apart to drug addiction and even gender identity disorder, the discussion thread includes more than 200 responses with fascinating and honest accounts of early divorce.
Here we select some of the most astounding anecdotes from those who have experienced the horrifying reality of breaking up within a year of marriage.
We met and fell I love while I was stationed in Georgia. We were engaged and she moved back to Louisiana with me. After about six months, she started acting weird. I asked what was wrong but got no straight answer.
I offered to call off the wedding, but she insisted that she loved me and wanted to stay with me. We were married on Thanksgiving day. On Christmas Eve, she admitted to cheating on me during our engagement.
I spiraled into a terrible dark depression. We tried to make it work for about a year. As my depression lifted, I realized that my resentment buried any love that I had for her. She cheated again and I left her

Although some of the reasons seemed pretty normal, such as drifting apart, others were far more shocking with drug addiction and domestic abuse being flagged as causes for several posters. 

As simple as that 
She started loving someone else. Worst 90 days of my life.
He tried some cocaine and that was it 
Ken isn't the only who's going to ruin "us"!
My ex-husband and I had been best friends for seven years. According to everyone we were soulmates. Well we were madly in love and finally started dating, then moved in together, and after a year or so said our "I dos."
One month after we were married he went out drinking with some friends. He tried some cocaine and that was it. He became a severe alcoholic and drug addict. He drained our accounts, stole every penny, destroyed our house, violently threatened me, and finally disappeared. Then he overdosed and spent months in rehab only to continue his habit the minute he got out.
This sounds like a white trash love story right? He was actually from a wealthy, upper class family, was endlessly kind and loyal to us, very well educated. It was a complete shock to all of us with this behavior. He is still a junkie to this day. We were only married eight months from "I do" to divorce day in court. It still breaks my heart to this day.
Spiritual prompting
In one case a woman admitted that her husband had used the internet to find men for sex
Her husband used the Net to find men for sex.
My sister had a friend that got divorced really quickly after her marriage (six months I think). The whole thing was rushed. They dated for less than a year.
She married him because she was religious and thought she was receiving a spiritual prompting. After the marriage they didn't act like newlyweds at all. Little to no holding hands, when they were sitting on a couch they had a foot of space between themselves, and so on. It wasn't long before they realized it wasn't going to work out.
A friend of mine from university got divorced after three months because of her husband's addictions that he failed to mention -- cocaine and finding gay men for sex on Craigslist. I say that the second was an addiction because he was picking up like three dudes a week on average. 

Counseling turned to coupling
My mother got divorced six months after her first marriage. They were having problems, went to a marriage counselor who told my mom that her husband needed one-on-one counseling but that my mom was fine and could go home. After their divorce finalized, another wedding with the marriage counselor was in the works.

The fling attended the wedding
My future ex-sister-in-law invited her boyfriend to her wedding to my brother. We didn't realize who he was at the time.
Forced into it
My parents threatened me and my ex saying we were living "in sin" because we were living together and not married. More

  • African skull found in Africa: Israel

    Pat Mapcherson, Pfc. Sandoval, Sheldon S., Wisdom Quaterly; Malcolm Ritter (Associated Press and The Washington Post contributed to this report, Jan. 29, 2015, via Denver Post)
    Dr. Omry Barzilai holds a skull named Manot. It was found inside a cave in northern Israel, which is in Africa but which is not called Africa by propagandists who prefer to call it "the geopolitical Middle East" (Dan Balilty/AP).

    We don't want Africans in our homeland.
    NEW YORK - Long ago, humans left their evolutionary cradle in Africa and passed through [Northern Africa and] the Middle East [toward] Europe. Now scientists have found the first fossil remains that appear to document that journey, a partial skull from an Israeli cave [in Palestine].

    Satellite shows that Israel/Palestine are part of Africa.
    The skull, named Manot, dates from about 55,000 years ago, fitting into the period when scientists had thought the [southern or central African] migrants inhabited the area. Details of its anatomy resemble ancient skulls from Europe, wrote Israel Hershkovitz of Tel Aviv University in an e-mail.
    • [Why "Manot"? Is it the first Man? No, Manot (Hebrew, מָנוֹת, literally "Portions") is a moshav in northern Israel/Palestine. It is located near Shlomi and it falls under the jurisdiction of Ma'ale Yosef Regional Council. In 2006 it had a population of 360 occupiers. It was "established" in 1980 by residents of other local moshavim with assistance from the Jewish Agency (aka the "Palestine Zionist Executive"). It was named after the ruins of a settlement in the area, also called Manot.]
    He and others presented the finding in a paper released Wednesday by the journal Nature. The skull, which lacks facial features and its base, was found in Manot Cave in the Galilee region of northern Israel [upper Palestine near Lebanon and Syria].

    Israel's lines in the sand: African borders
    The migrants are called modern humans because of their anatomy. The earliest remains of modern humans in Europe date to about 45,000 years ago.

    Experts not connected with the work were impressed. "This is the first evidence we have of the humans who made this journey," apart from some ancient tools, said Eric Delson of Lehman College and the American Museum of Natural History in New York.

    Although finding a fossil that fits so well with what was thought about the ancient migration might be expected, "we didn't have it before," he said.

    "We could predict theoretically what we would find. They've found it....Up until now, that was a ghost."
    Katerina Harvati of the University of Tuebingin in Germany said the skull gives clues about the anatomy of the migrants. Because Neanderthals were known to inhabit the area, the skull also documents that they and modern humans co-existed there, as suspected, Harvati said.

    Political map of N. Africa
    That supports the idea that Neanderthals and modern humans interbred there, experts said. Chris Stringer of the Natural History Museum in London wrote in an e-mail that the skull is the first fossil of a modern human from western Asia [Afro-Asiatic] that is well-dated to the estimated time of the interbreeding, about 50,000 to 60,000 years ago.

    If the researchers can analyze the skull's DNA, they could determine whether Manot was actually a hybrid -- the result of interbreeding -- or just lived in close proximity to these extinct relatives of ours. More

    Speaking with Sasquatch (video)

    Dev, Crystal Quintero, Amber Larson, Dhr. Seven, Wisdom Quarterly; FirAndCedar
    Intuitive artist and Sasquatch communicator Andrew Robson, exhibiting the characteristics of a "fairy," explains how Sasquatch communicates from the realm of devas (Min. 15, Ep. 1).

    Natural wonders of British Columbia, Yoho National Park, Pacific Northwest (wiki)
    Who are the devas like Danu?
    In a previous post we posed the shocking question, "What can the dead teach us about Bigfoot?" There are two ways to find Sasquatch ("Wild Man," Yeti, Bigfoot, Buddhist Yakkha or Yakshi).

    One is through the heart of wisdom (the sixth sense), the other through the empirical five senses. Many will stumble upon the devas (fairies, "shining ones," light beings, woodland elemental spirits) by the opening of their third or divine eye, the dibba cakkhu, the DMT-rich pineal gland between the eyes within the brain.

    31 Planes of Existence
    WARNING: Wait! Don't publish! You guys should not talk about this. Mystic mumbo-jumbo sounds crazy. Bhikkhu Bodhi, in addressing the ancient Buddhist cosmological scheme of unseen beings, suggests a very rational alternative:

    We can think of Buddhism's 31 Planes of Existence as mental states humans fall into -- asuras when we are angry, animals when we are dumb or brutish, devas when we feel angelic or overcome with joy and a sense of invincibility or immortality, hungry ghosts when we are caught by addiction or insatiable greed and clinging, humans when we can follow the Five Precepts, hellions when we are depressed or feeling hopeless. There is no need to believe in these as literal realms or as anything but metaphorical spheres.

    Do fairies really exist? (Jah Ho JayDMR/flickr)
    And if we will not know  in this life if they are or are not objectively real, why talk about them? That is a good question except that meditative attainments make it possible to directly verify that these planes are real existing places with literal inhabitants, not simply metaphors. Buddhism is very practical, very much concerned with liberation and what can be attained in this life.

    Mediums who communicate with these hidden human tribes, or hybrid human species, receive messages and live in peace with them. There are, however, inimical tribes, unfriendly humanoid creatures (like the rakshasa) who might devour one. The forest is like that.

    Grey ET iconography at rave (Die Antwoord)
    Has no one ever thought to wonder why drug users and abusers use and are drawn to the same archetypes and images -- mushrooms, pot leaves, Grey ETs, Bear Men (yakkhas, ogres), dragons (nagas), flowers, psychedelic color swirls, infantilizing plush dolls, fairies (bhumi-devas), gnomes (kumbhandas), unicorns, mermaids, snakes, trees, castles, geometric patterns?

    Deva DNA in humans may help us see.
    Why are people, particularly females, drawn to them in hippie and rave subcultures? We suggest it is the type of drugs being consumed, namely, entheogens.

    How else is one to explain the wild popularity of bears, Bigfoot, Bear Men, or furry creatures in general?

    Why do fans love the marching "bear"?
    This would also feed into our King Kong and Fay Wray fascination. They just seem to go together, to be linked in our minds in some archetypal way, like Beauty and the Beast.

    What could be wild speculation is directly discussed by a deva-like man from British Columbia, Andrew Robson, a woodland hippie psychic artist/intuitive on Episode 1 of "Speaking of Sasquatch" (see video above, Minute 15:00).

    Shapeshifting Bear Men into this dimension
    While we are only trying to make sense of the testimony of psychics, trance mediums, interspecies communicators, mystics, and shamans, it would certainly explain a great deal. But trying to rationally interpret and explain the realm of devas, mysticism, mythology, and spiritual lore as well as the direct experience of countless Americans at massive rave festivals, Phish shows, and old time Grateful Dead concerts is fraught with dangers.

    Ha ha, "Sasquatch," what a joke, you nuts!
    The number one danger is ridicule. We can weather that. The second danger is trying to apply rational, linear logic with all of its unquestioned underlying assumptions to something holistic, interconnected, and more a web with countless and expanding nexus points than a line that begins here and ends there, that has a simple first cause and a point or end goal.

    Reality is not that way. There is no seeing it "objectively" if we ourselves are in it, part of it, constantly affecting it, emerging from it, not really different from it. Is the universe, as mystics of old have always said, looking back at itself? We are not in the universe looking at it. We are the universe. We are not in an environment. We are part of the environment. How then will we know it independent of it?

    The "Wild Men" are out there. And those who live in the woods for generations have no doubt about it from Buddhists in Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet in the Himalayas to Native Americans in California, Oregon, and Washington in the U.S.
    The one thing many cannot understand about Buddhism is that it is neither an intellectual philosophy (ñāṇa) nor an emotional-devotional (bhakti) exercise, although these elements are present. Buddhism first and foremost is a practice which seeks to purify the heart/mind so that "objective" (impersonal, impermanent, unsatisfactory) reality can be seen directly and penetrated. The goal is liberation (nirvana) and it is only possible by direct knowing-and-seeing (enlightenment).

    Scr-w the airy-fairy talk, we demand science!
    Pat Macpherson, Pfc. Sandoval, Wisdom Quarterly
    Lloyd Pye explains the science we are lied to about to feed us a consensus reality misunderstanding about Darwinism, the Theory of Evolution, and human origins on Earth.
    Himalayan Yeti (Snow Walker video still)
    Fortunately for those of us who are more empirically minded -- who want to see, touch, and test the hard evidence -- it exists in the form of DNA evidence, genetic profiling, a peer-reviewed publication (Dr. Melba Ketchum, David Paulides, et al.)

    There is also the more widely published and compromised work of Oxford scientist Brian Sykes, who has determined that the Himalayan Yeti of lore is very real but simply a kind of prehistoric (more humanoid) "polar bear."

    (TPK) Former police officer David Paulides discusses the systematic, scientific investigation of Sasquatch and collection of data and affidavits particularly in and around U.S. national parks.

    Homo floresiensis (
    The problem is next to no one will actually examine the evidence because of what they imagine is implied: Why if this is true, what else have I been wrong about, what else is real, what can be said of the cover up aided by the mainstream media for years on end even as centuries old Native American lore told us otherwise?

    And what does it say about the theory of evolution when clearly someone or something meddled with our earthling DNA to genetically alter and "create" the various lines of human beings that have existed from the fossil evidence, like the extinct tiny kumbhandas (gnomes, dwarfs) or "Hobbits" (Homo floresiensis) of formerly Buddhist Indonesia and surviving Neanderthals (Almas or "Wild Men") of Russia and Central Asia. New species of human beings discovered? I'll believe it when I see it. Show me the evidence!

    (BBC) Scientists discover new race of human beings in Asia, the Denisovans, Dec. 2010

    Tibetan Folklore
    Some ogres (yakshis) are cannibals.
    (WIKI) Almases appear in the legends of local people, who tell stories of sightings and human-Almas interactions dating back several hundred years. Drawings interpreted as Almas also appear in a Tibetan medicinal book. British anthropologist Myra Shackley noted that "The book contains thousands of illustrations of various classes of animals (reptiles, mammals and amphibia), but not one single mythological [or make believe] animal such as are known from similar medieval European books. All the creatures [contained in the medicinal text] are living and observable today" (1983, p. 98). 

    Famous Western sightings
    Sightings recorded in writing go as far back as the 15th century. In 1430, Hans Schiltberger recorded his personal observation of these creatures in the journal of his trip to Mongolia as a prisoner of the Mongol Khan. Schiltberger also recorded one of the first European sightings of Przewalski horses. (Manuscript in the Munich Municipal Library, Sign. 1603, Bl. 210)(Shackley, 94). He noted that Almasty are part of the Mongolian and Tibetan apothecary's materia medica, along with thousands of other animals and plants that live today.
    Hair, blood, DNA evidence are hard science.
    British anthropologist Myra Shackley in Still Living? describes Ivan Ivlov's 1963 observation of a family group of Almas. Ivlov, a pediatrician, decided to interview some of the Mongolian children who were his patients and discovered that many of them had also said that they had seen Almases and that neither the Mongol children nor the young Almas were afraid of each other. Ivlov's driver also claimed to have seen them (Shackley, 91). 

    Captive Almas
    A wildwoman named Zana or Zanya (Brian Sykes claims he solved her mystery by DNA analysis) is said to have lived in the isolated mountain village of T'khina 50 miles from Sukhumi in Abkhazia in the Caucasus; some have speculated she may have been an Almas (Neanderthal-modern human hybrid), but this alleged evidence indicates that she was a human.

    Most sharks are harmless
    A scary Bigfoot meets hunter in the woods.
    Most sharks are harmless, but Great White maneaters get all of the attention. The same is true of the many varieties (tribes) of Sasquatches, "Wild Men." Some are quite docile, wise, protecting the forest and nature. But a few are cannibals, brutish, perhaps experiencing transient hormonal changes, like good elephants gone wild during the rut or protective mothers perceiving a danger to their offspring. This past weekend Dave Schrader (host of Darkness Radio) guest-hosted Coast to Coast with just such stories:

    Forest Predator
    Dave Schrader welcomed paranormal researcher Stephen Young, who discussed a strange and highly unusual predator that is living in the woods and forests all across the world and is able to overpower someone in an instant.

    Young said she was led into the topic after uncovering stories of people disappearing in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania, Mt. Kailash in Tibet, and the Markawasi Stone Forest of Peru. She described Markawasi as a dimensional portal and suggested the strange energy visitors have described feeling there is possibly caused by a confluence of ley lines or the piezoelectric properties of granite.

    Young reported on a missing middle-aged man in good health found dead in a forest in Ireland, as well as a boy from the Isle of Man who allegedly disappeared for four years into another dimension.

    She suggested an invisible entity could be involved in the disappearances, pointing to records of explorer James Alan Rennie who claimed to have seen tracks with no source moving toward him, make impact, then continue past. A cloaked mantis-type creature, such as proposed by Michael Ian Black, may be lifting these people and leaving no trace behind, Young suggested.

    She also spoke about locations around the planet, including Assonet Ledge in Freetown State Forest, Massachusetts, and the Overtoun Bridge in Scotland, where people (and dogs) feel compelled to commit suicide. AUDIO
