Wednesday Weirdness Roundup

Martian plesiosaurs, Mossad sharks, and teleporting dolphins. Oh my.

  • Felicity Lowde, convicted in 2007 of harassing 7/7 bombing survivor Rachel North, has now turned her cybertongue against Pagans and Freemasons in Bristol, speculating they may have abducted and ritually murdered Joanne Yeates in a macabre Solstice initiation ceremony. Circumstantial evidence includes the fact that some Bristol Pagans like to meet in pubs near Ms. Yeates‘ workplace.
  • In late 2008, a Washington state man named Andrew Basiago announced he had found numerous anomalous things in photos taken by the Mars Spirit Rover, including humans in blue jumpsuits, statues, a Bigfoot, a “centipede woman”, and huge snakes. Now Basiago says he was teleported to Mars twice in 1980, and on one occasion he and the CIA agent accompanying him were charged by a plesiosaur. I’m sorry to report that some people believe this, and it has led to a crazy kerfuffle between leading members of the exopolitics movement. Basiago is apparently a practicing attorney, and claims to have five degrees from institutions like UCLA. He’s scheduled to speak at a Dolphins & Teleportation Symposium being held in Hawaii this June. Maybe a Martian plesiosaur will show up, too.
  • Kids, this is what happens when you go AWOL to make shitty “documentaries” with your friends.
  • Lest anyone is wondering why Egypt is up the creek, look no further than this: Last December, Mohamed Shousha (Governor of South Sinai) publicly declared that Israel’s Mossad may have dumped a shark into Egyptian waters to harm the tourist industry. With leaders like this, who needs leaders?

Is it just me, or would all these things combined make a great movie? A bloodthirsty shark capable of teleporting itself to the surface of Mars is released into English waters by an intelligence agency, and is thwarted by a coalition of dolphins, Martian plesiosaurs, and drunk Pagans.

Wednesday Weirdness Roundup

The sun is square. Angels are trying to kill Diane Downs. You know, the usual.

  • This fellow is earnestly attempting to draw a connection between the Georgia Guidestones and Dubai’s Burj Khalifa skyscraper. Why it even occurred to someone to compare the dimensions of a building in the Middle East and some rocks in the middle of freaking nowhere, I just don’t know.
  • File this under “Crazy B**** Gets Crazier”: 2008 footage of Diane Downs‘ first parole hearing (available here) makes Charlie Manson’s argument that the State of California had to release him from prison because he was shrinking look sane. The book she’s displaying is All Night, All Day, Angels Watching Over Me, edited by Evelyn Bence. As it has absolutely nothing to do with the State Department or Israel, the photos were apparently pasted into it. I have no idea if Susan Polk actually gave this book to Downs or not, but they were in the same prison for a while, and Polk insists her late ex-husband was a Mossad agent (though he had never been to Israel).
  • The sun is not spherical, it is a cube. Srsly, you guys.
