Fumble Parties Back in the early 1950s, fumble parties became all the rage, according to Life magazine (July 14, 1952), which offered this description of them: A person is chosen 'it' by drawing the high card from a deck. 'It' goes to another room while the other players add and subtract clothes, put on masks or disguise themselves in other ways. When everyone is disguised, they all fling themselves down into a huddle on the floor, making a confused tangle of bodies, arms, and legs. Then the lights are turned off.

Deep Black Lies The relentless approach of global feudalism: "In addition to these pragmatic goals, the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations." Prof. Carroll Quigley (Tragedy & Hope)

Bizarre Websites On Which You Can Kill Time With Style - Smashing Magazine Modern Web-building technologies allow designers to realize their most daring and creative ideas. Enhanced interactivity and a remarkable visual appearance can be achieved by means of such tools as Flash, JavaScript and Papervision3D, to name just a few. These strengths usually impress and entertain visitors and thus are often used for conceptual artistic presentations and promotional campaigns. In this post, you’ll find a collection of amusing websites that, by combining unconventional (and sometimes bizarre) ideas and clever JavaScript and Flash effects, will entice you to play on them for an embarrassing long time.

Decrypted Matrix At long last, news and other content now continues on our TLD www.DecryptedMatrix.com DCMX Reminder: “if they are telling us about it in the mainstream media, they’ve had it for 15 years, at least.” Pentagon-supported physicists on Wednesday said they had devised a “time cloak” that briefly makes an event undetectable. The laboratory device manipulates the flow of light in such a way that for the merest fraction of a second an event cannot be seen, according to a paper published in the science journal Nature. It adds to experimental work in creating next-generation camouflage – a so-called invisibility cloak in which specific colours cannot be perceived by the human eye.

Technology Killed The Government Czar – How The State Is Becoming Obsolete DontComply.com I believe we are heading into a technological age in which what we know as government will become obsolete. Even now, what we think of as great leaps forward by our government is simply the product of the minds of free market leaders. For example, when Americans decided to go to the moon, NASA was established.

Unusual articles This page is for Wikipedians to list articles that seem unusual.

The 7 Most Sexually Deviant Creatures in Folklore Human history is rife with monsters, devils, and things that go bump in the night. It also has its fair share of things that go hump in the night. And let's be reasonable; sexual terror is a real and powerful thing. A monster is ever-so-slightly scarier if it violates you in some way. And maybe that's what people were thinking about when they crafted this handful of ghouls who aren't content to just hide under your bed or stab you at summer camp -- they want to give you the bad touch and make you feel worse about yourself than you normally would when a supernatural monster starts eating you.

(Source) The spooky world of the 'numbers stations' 16 April 2014Last updated at 09:27 ET By Olivia Sorrel-Dejerine BBC News Magazine This is the era of hyper-tech espionage, encrypted emails and mindboggling cryptography. But you can hear a very old-fashioned form of espionage on shortwave radio. It is 13:03 on a Tuesday in a cramped room with some fairly advanced radio equipment. What is suddenly heard on a shortwave receiving station is a 10-minute message in Morse code.

The Official Graham Hancock Website After years of travelling, exploring archaeological sites and rummaging through puzzles in ancient myths and legends I have found many reasons to suspect that the orthodox theory of human prehistory - the one that is taught in all our schools and universities - is seriously in error. The theory takes many different local forms with endless variations, but the backbone in all cases is the same: an entrenched belief system about the human condition and about our collective past in which modern advanced civilisation is seen as the product of thousands of years of linear social and technological evolution - "onwards and upwards," as my friend John West likes to caricature the orthodox view, "from stupid old cave men to smart old us". I write my books to try to show that an alternative view can fruitfully be considered. If you want a slavishly "balanced" and objective account of "both sides of the argument" then I'm the wrong author for you!

Tunguska event Coordinates: The Tunguska event was a large explosion, caused by an asteroid or comet, which occurred near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River in what is now Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia, at about 07:14 KRAT (00:14 UT) on June 30 [O.S. June 17], 1908.[1][2][3] The explosion occurred at an altitude of 5–10 kilometres (3–6 mi) at 60.886°N, 101.894°E. It is classified as an impact event even though the object is believed to have burst in the air rather than hit the surface.[4] Different studies have yielded widely varying estimates of the impacting object's size, on the order of 60 m (200 ft) to 190 m (620 ft).[5] It is the largest impact event on or near Earth in recorded history. Since the 1908 event, there have been an estimated 1,000 scholarly papers (mainly in Russian) published on the Tunguska explosion.

The Asshole Factory — Bad Words My good friend Mara has not one but two graduate degrees. From fine, storied universities. Surprise, surprise: the only “job” she was able to find was at a retail store. Hey—it’s only minimum wage, but at least she’s working, right? And at a major-league, blue-chip company, An American icon; an institution; a name every man, woman, and child in this country knows; an historic company that rings of the American Dream the world over, besides.

The Hollow Earth While most of us would like to coincide with the general idea that life evolves under only certain criteria we have been conditioned to understand, there are some who know the seeming void is teeming with consciousness ... among the many other worlds that are, there exists a world inside earth, subterranean cities where flourish descendants of advanced civilizations from an ancient time. The ones from Atlantis and Lemuria who retreated from the face of the planet escaping inevitable peril due to the great flood and the use of destructive nuclear technology are among the many other civilizations you will find down there ! The first public scientific evidence occurred in 1947 when Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd of the United States Navy flew directly to the North Pole and instead of going over the pole, actually entered the inner earth through the North Pole opening. They escorted him to a safe landing place and he was graciously greeted by emissaries from Agartha.
