  • General signs of progress and/or the apocalypse

    I altered my old prepper thread so it can be a thread for all odd-ball news, under or unreported by the major outlets stories, and scientific or technological things that I find.

    Are you a prepper?

    Doomsday Prep for the Super-Rich
    Some of the wealthiest people in America—in Silicon Valley, New York, and beyond—are getting ready for the crackup of civilization.

    Since this doesn't really qualify as politics or religion, here's a pic of HRC to prepare your anus:

        Maybe this one was better suited for the old wtf thread... but I think it may just be a boonies version of crop circles:

        Mystery Stacker Takes Rock Balancing to Another Level

        The formations may be the work of artists, but no one knows for sure.

        A series of rock stacks in Banning has residents scratching their heads as to who is responsible for putting them up.

        As the thousands upon thousands of Instagram posts can attest, rock stacking is nothing new.

        An as-of-yet unidentified person (or persons) in Banning, however, has raised the bar when it comes to the art of balancing rocks atop one another.

        A series of stacks that sit in a wash across from a cemetery has now grown to about an acre in size.

        "We got to coming up here every day or two and it just grew more and more," said longtime Banning resident Jerrelee Rutherford, who enjoys the formations.

        And these aren't just a few pebbles in a creek. That's amateur hour. Some of the rocks used in the Banning formations can weigh up to 200 pounds, Rutherford said.

        So who's responsible?

        Rutheford and her husband have taken to going out at different times of the day and night to pin down the rock stackers, but so far, no luck.

        Could it be artists, as Rutherford thinks might be the case? Or are there rock stackers of a different kind roaming around in the Inland Empire?

        "We got a few aliens here in Banning," Rutheford said with a laugh.

          Didn't somebody just invent the flying car?
          In non-news, like 15 years ago, 60 Minutes featured machines that monkeys and handicapped people could control with their minds. What happened to that technology?

            I'm not familiar with that one. I know that way back when, we were working on a flying car called the Avrocar. But they gave it up after a while.

              The truth is out there, it's also possibly out of beer.


              Bryant Johnson Of Casper Arrested For Public Intoxication; Claimed To Be A Time Traveler

              A Casper man claiming to be from the future, has been arrested for having too much to drink in the present.
              Casper Police officers say at around 10:30pm on Monday, October 2nd, they were dispatched to a residence on East 2nd Street, for a man who was stating he was from the future and he was there to help people.
              They found Bryant Johnson who claimed he was from the year 2048, and was trying to warn the people of Casper that aliens were coming next year, and they should leave as soon as possible.
              He added that he wanted to speak to the president of the town.
              Johnson told police the only way he was able to time travel was to have aliens fill his body with alcohol and have him stand on a giant pad which transported him to 2017, but he ended up in wrong year, and was supposed to be in 2018.
              Officers noted that Johnson had watery bloodshot eyes, slightly slurred speech and the smell of alcohol coming from him.
              It was determined that Johnson could not take care of himself and was causing a disturbance in the emergency room.
              An early breath sample showed he had a blood alcohol content of .136.
              Johnson was arrested for public intoxication.

                A few weeks ago, I read that some computer could read people's minds.
