Hiding Extraterrestrials Shown In Paintings From Across Medieval Europe

Yesterday, I came upon a web site that claimed that medieval paintings are filled with images of extraterrestrials. A painting called The Madonna with Saint Giovannino was given as an example. As you can see here, over the shoulder of Santa Maria is a smudge that appears to be floating in the sky.

Has President Obama Been Poisoned?

Benjamin Fulford reports that President Barack Obama has been poisoned by secret agents from Israel. According to Fulford, the recent trip by Obama to a hospital for a “sore throat” was actually in response to the poisoning, which has been covered up because of fears of public panic.

Of course, Benjamin Fulford also reports that […]

Never Take Anything For Granted, Including This Quote

“Never Take Anything For Granted.”

That’s what this image I came across tells me, and who am I to disobey an image? Always obey images, that’s my motto. So I am somewhat disappointed to tell you that there is a reliable source confirming that Benjamin Disraeli did indeed utter those words. How wonderful would […]

The Ogres Of Poetry

Happy Halloween! It’s a day on which we give ourselves permission to confront the things that frighten us, only in not quite so serious form. In that spirit, I bring you ogres… in poetry.

Yale Prof: Unpopular Bizarre Claims Can Be Ignored, Popular Bizarre Claims Must be Respected

How much does Yale University pay a professor to paraphrase the cliche that “100 million people can’t be wrong”? Fully tenured Yale Professor Keith DeRose explains in the New York Times why Christianity deserves more respect from atheists than Pastafarianism deserves from Christians:

“I think you can sometimes rightly claim to know that something doesn’t […]

Middle School Kids: Stuck in a Home School Rut? Try a bit of Code.Org

Every day, it seems more and more kids in the crucial middle school years are in the middle of a home schooling situation. Are you one of those kids? Maybe it’s because your parents are so zealous that they don’t want you to hear about ideas outside the family religion. Maybe it’s because you left […]

Opportunity

In the southbound lane of the long, high metal and asphalt bridge over the Piscataqua River that divides New Hampshire from Maine, a grate covers a storm-water drain. Out of that drain, a lone sunflower plant has grown. Today it is in full blossom, facing its bloom toward the sun.

If you are a designer […]

Monday Effects

Among investors, the “Monday Effect” is a theory that financial markets will, on a Monday, tend to follow trajectories similar to what occurred on the previous Friday. Vijay Gondhalekar and Seyed Mehdian, in a study in the Quarterly Journal of Business and Economics, extended discussion of the Monday Effect into a “blue-Monday hypothesis”, positing an […]

Amazon.com Seeks To Convert Your Children Into Cybermen

Few companies invite as many conspiracies as Amazon, the gigantic online retailer that specializes in selling… stuff. The zombie web site of Andrew Breitbart notes that Barack Obama visited Amazon.com headquarters just six days before the company announced its purchase of the Washington Post. Could that be a coincidence?

Also, Amazon’s CEO Jeff Bezos has […]

Mysterious Assemblages For Monday

Monday is a day of regularity. It is a day of predictable assemblages of people and objects.

To counter Monday’s clockwork, I present the following links to mysterious assemblages:

The Guilty River, a free ebook by Wilkie Collins opens with a dreary time: “The mysterious assemblage of trees was blacker than the blackening sky. Of […]
