Pyramid Building Theory Will Make You Wonder

The U.S. Army's Top Secret Arctic City Under the Ice! "Camp Century"

The U.S. Army's Top Secret Arctic City Under the Ice! "Camp Century" Restored Classified Film - In the late 1950s, during the height of the Cold War, the US military constructed a secret base in the Arctic for "research" purposes. Some theorists claim that it was actually used as a covert nuclear weapons storage &/or testing facility as part of Top Secret "Project Iceworm" with the ultimate objective of covertly placing medium-range missiles under the ice sheet -- close enough to strike the Soviet Union, while remaining hidden from the Danish government. Others have made even grander claims - that Camp Century was actually a weather manipulation experiment ... or a U.S. Military administered Alien / UFO base! The whole truth may never be known. This video is the actual declassified US ARMY FILM documenting the construction process. What really happened there afterwards remains a mystery.

No, NO, NOOOOOO!

Are You Cool Enough to Drink Switchel?

Deep in the industrial heart of Bushwick, Brooklyn, a few miles north of the neighborhood's main drag, are several rows of former warehouses, now home to local craftsmen. In one, two men bend their heads over a pinewood bench, sanding the spindles smooth. Over on Bogart St., several street artists are repainting a stretch of brick wall, covered in vibrant graffiti, a ritual that takes place every two months.

And on the second floor of one former factory, two friends are brewing large batches of switchel, a colonial farm drink that's fast becoming the borough's hottest beverage.

Is this the world's oldest secret code?

How a Harvard Scientist's Life Changed After He Killed a Puppy-Size Spider

 I really fear for the Smithsonian Institution, this nation’s preeminent natural history collection. If a single spider collected by a scientist causes such an outrage then, surely, the 126 million specimens in its holdings will warrant burning it to the ground and crucifying all scientists working there.

Harvard researcher Piotr Naskrecki was just doing his job when he ran into the one of the world’s largest spiders in Guyana and killed it. The Internet didn’t see it that way.
