Re: 1245: 10-Day Forecast

The figure on tuesday looks a bit like Frank the Rabbit from Donnie Darko. Any other ideas? http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lhysy2oCGe1qi0k1do1_400.jpg Clearly Tim Curry begins the white noise apocalypse, after which it's Groundhog Day in Norway during winter minus electricity from then on. Exact...

Re: 1235: "Settled"

Ball lightning & meteorites in particular took hundreds of years for the scientific community to accept because they thought the very notion of them was ridiculous and they would explain them away in any way possible. Indeed, a quote by Antoine Lavoiseir, father of modern chemistry, shows how e...

After seeing some admitted fakes with movie-quality VFX on YouTube, I've come to the conclusion that I cannot be convinced that *anything* improbable-seeming is real by videographic evidence anymore.
