What is going on in our skies?

A quality inspector for Boeing who has worked before on or near fighter jets since 1980 received an image from his friend showing a strange phenomenon in the sky during sunset on November 20, 2017. The image was so intriguing he felt compelled to post it to MUFON case 88249 to see if anyone else witnessed the objects.

His friend and another guy were making their way back to the boat ramp after a day of deer hunting along the Missouri River; the sun had set approximately 15 minutes earlier, when they noticed a strange group of lights above the clouds and beams of light reflecting off the river.

Although the event only lasted seconds and was gone, his friend managed to take a picture of the phenomenon.

Quality inspector: “This may be just a very cool sun dog-type reflection, but I was having a hard time explaining the chevron shaped group of lights above the cloud, and the ‘way too evenly spaced’ beams of light coming off what appears to be the sun shining down from the cloud.”

“Looking at the bottom of the clouds in the picture you can tell that the sun is reflecting off the bottom of the cloud and the beams are apparently reflecting off the river.”

Guy Makes Shock Discovery About Woman Who’s Had 50 Surgeries To Look Like Angelina Jolie

A Reddit user has made a shocking discovery about an Iranian teenager who claims to have undergone around 50 different surgeries in an attempt to look like Angelina Jolie.

19-year-old Sahar Tabar, from Tehran, went viral earlier today as the internet were shocked by her new look.

Sahar regularly uploads selfies and photos to her popular Instagram account which currently has 341,000 followers.

Admitting that she would do anything to look just like her idol, 42-year-old Hollywood actress Jolie, Sahar has apparently undergone an extreme transformation undergoing 50 different surgeries in the space of only a few months.

The exact nature of her surgeries are unconfirmed.

According to Belgian website Sud Info, Sahar also went on an extreme diet to maintain her 40kg weight which would classify her as being dangerously underweight in medical terms in the UK.

From her Instagram pictures, you can see that the superfan wears special contact lenses that are an electric blue in an attempt to achieve Jolie’s blue eyes.

 

Sahar has also dyed her hair numerous times changing colour from purple, to blonde and now black.

However, not everyone on the internet is a fan of her transformation often commenting negatively calling Sahar ‘a zombie’ and ‘a corpse’.

One person wrote:

Her: Doc make me look like an 8 month old corpse.

Doc: Say no more.

It turns out though that the shocking pictures are likely to be faked, as revealed by Reddit user known as Zaza9000.

Posting on the popular site, the user wrote:

I do believe she got plastic surgery, but it’s more or less makeup and extremely exaggerating her features that she got done.

I’ve yet to figure out why other than just internet attention and fame. I kinda took it for face value, something you should never do and I ran with it.

They also shared a photo Sahar shared pointing to strange distortions and blurs that indicate that the picture has indeed been Photoshopped.

These indicators of doctoring – of the other sense – can be seen on pretty much every extreme photo Sahar shares, meaning we have probably been fooled.

Also if you look at a short video the teenager shared three days ago, she looks perfectly healthy and nothing like she does in the photos she normally shares.

Fake or not the photos are receiving a lot of attention online and so if it was internet fame Sahar was after, well, she got it.

Regularly posting selfies undeterred by the negative comments she receives, many of Sahar’s photos receive over 10,000 likes.

It is clear that people across the world enjoy what Sahar posts Photoshopped or not, so you keep on doing what you are doing girl as it is clearly working for you.

Photos Reveal Evidence of INVISIBLE CREATURES: Sky Fish, Rods, Solar Entities

WHEREVER A CAMERA MAY APPEAR, THE RODS MAY LAY IN SILENT WAIT. THE JURY’S OUT ON WHETHER THEY ARE THE PRODUCT OF PHOTOGRAPHIC ILLUSION OR GENUINE UNIDENTIFIED ORGANIC ENTITIES.

Fast, elusive, and virtually invisible. Beings that fly, in some cases even swim, and that surround us if only we could see—they are as ethereal as the air itself. Known as “Rods,” “Sky Fish” or “Solar Entities,” these photographic anomalies have been a mystery since the Mexican film director José Escamilla presumably discovered them in 1994.

While Escamilla was recording a documentary in Midway, New Mexico—just outside Roswell—he discovered what looked like strange life-forms appearing frequently throughout the film. They were off-white in color and oblong in shape, dashing through the picture and interfering with the artistic goal of the director.

Later, Escamilla employed a more detailed analysis—a specially developed filming protocol—to produce “smoking-gun” video evidence. Escamilla believes that the insects were a heretofore-unknown form of organic life, only perceptible through cameras.

Thus, the phenomenon of the Rod was born.

Around the World

With news of Escamilla’s finding, film aficionados around the world quickly set out to discover their own Rods in photographs and videos. The purported life-forms seemed to appear with regularity, in contrast to the majority of orbs (which are often dismissed as dust) or other pseudo-cryptoids that enthusiasts had been accustomed to. Rods were uniquely photogenic and filmed extensively, but not one of them could be seen with the naked eye.

New Mexico, Indiana, Connecticut, in the films of the Iraq War—when pictures were examined closely, every camera seemed to have discovered more and more of these strange creatures. Even during the filming of Mel Gibson’s “Braveheart,” it is said, the Rods seemed to have left their mark.

Rods, Quasi-Beings

As the years passed, the Rod phenomenon began to catch more attention from Ufologists as scientific skeptics showed an interest. As evidence of these specimens grew, a catalog of their anatomy, “physiology,” flying strategy, and countless other details became an obsession for hundreds of Rod investigators around the world.

Based on their proximity to other elements in the images, the creatures were found to be from a few inches to 3 feet in length. All possessed a fine membrane on both sides of the body that facilitated their travel through the air like a cuttlefish; and they all moved at apparently “supersonic” speeds, such that they could only be captured on certain grades of film, at velocities not visible to the human eye.

Some people even alleged to understand the secrets behind these miniature shooting stars, affording them supernatural powers, with origins from parallel universes. The History Channel added to rod lore earlier this year as the channel’s “Monster Quest” program labeled the phenomenon “creatures from the fourth dimension.”

As the Rod fervor continued, even Escamilla himself, once believing that the strange shapes were simply insects or birds, began to re-examine whether these creatures could really be something otherworldly.

Fall of the Rod, Rise of the Moth

Yet despite so much film of these flying creatures, much of the evidence was unable to prove that Rods were anything more than optical phenomena caused by the cameras themselves. Skeptics argued that the photos and videos were merely a product of optical illusions, and insisted that the phenomena failed to materialize any concrete proof of existence.

Some debunkers demonstrated how the rapid passing of large insects in front of cameras produced a union effect among two, three, or more trajectories of the same insect, giving the optical impression of a long body with various pairs of wings. In 2005, investigators in Jilin, China, unmasked numerous Rods they had monitored on a security camera, which turned out to be nothing more than run-of-the-mill moths.

However, not all of the evidence from the Rod phenomenon can be so easily explained. In fact, many cryptozoologists and Ufologists say that other footage that features rods taken from ultraviolet or infrared cameras can’t be so easily dismissed as being optical illusions or common insects.

As evidence continues to be collected and reviewed, many await the proof that will either legitimize the existence of these mysterious creatures or reveal a photographic fluke that made imaginations run wild.

Man gravely misunderstands Craigslist ad offering ‘one nightstand’

OTTAWA, ON—In the dead of the night, a desperate man answered a Craigslist ad in a way that raised many, many questions.

“Look, I’d been in a dry spell longer than the line-up for Axe Body Spray samples at a national douchebag convention,” explains Eric DeWitt, 41, who mistakenly assumed he was replying to a post offering a night of fun, no-strings-attached sex with a woman named Robyn.

“Robyn’s just a straight-up hot name. I didn’t even need to see a photo,” DeWitt explains. “Again—really can’t overstate how long it’s been.”

The title of the ad read “AVAILABLE: One nightstand,” and DeWitt confesses that when he blearily came across the posting at 3:12 a.m., he “just didn’t really consider” why it featured a photo of a small mahogany bedside table in great condition aside from a small scratch in the left-hand corner.

Really felt I’d hit the jackpot with that ad.– Eric DeWitt, 41

He sighs. “I figured this Robyn lady was just… I don’t know, offering a peek into her bedroom, like a way of saying, ‘heyyyyyyy, this is where all our hot action will take place.’ I can appreciate now that that’s emphatically not the case.”

The details of the ad were sparse: “Pretty good shape”; “Stable”; and “Identical twin available for the other side of the bed if you’re interested”.

“All things I look for when I decide to take a lover,” DeWitt shares. “Really felt I’d hit the jackpot with that ad.”

The ad went on to say “Pick-up Only,” which DeWitt interpreted as, “well yeah, any gentleman on a booty call knows to come with some sexy lines prepared. You don’t just suddenly get naked, guys. You have to ease into it using any one of the great pick-up lines in my Great Pick-up Lines binder.”

He gestures to the overstuffed black three-ring binder beside him filled with neon post-it notes, dog-eared pages and extensively highlighted sections.

When DeWitt finally worked up the courage to respond to Robyn’s ad, the phone call lasted exactly eight seconds.

“I opened with my sexy binder voice, or SBV as the ladies know it, reading just a killer line from page 33,” DeWitt explains.

“Yeah, so she shut that down pretty instantly.”

At press time, Robyn’s Craigslist ad had been updated to read “AVAILABLE: Small table to put beside your bed. As in furniture” and the seller’s name had been changed to “noted octogenarian Horace Grumblefist VII”.

A black protester hugged a white nationalist outside Richard Spencer’s talk. ‘Why do you hate me?’ he asked.

Wearing a white T-shirt emblazoned with swastikas, Randy Furniss, hands in his pockets, walked slowly through a crowd Thursday that had largely gathered to protest white nationalist Richard Spencer, who was delivering a speech at the University of Florida.

Days before Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) had warned in an executive order that a “threat of a potential emergency is imminent” in Alachua County, where the University of Florida is located, noting that prior speaking engagements involving Spencer have sparked protest and violence.

The event was Spencer’s first public speech on a college campus since he led hundreds of torch-bearing white supremacists, white nationalists and others through the University of Virginia in a far-right rally in August that preceded a weekend of violent protests in Charlottesville. More than 500 law enforcement officers were deployed, with snipers positioned on the rooftops of nearby buildings.

“Go home, Nazi scum!” the crowd chanted, jeering at Furniss, of Idaho.

Suddenly, an individual in a green hoodie punched Furniss in the face, before quickly disappearing into the crowd. Furniss recoiled, but carried on walking. Blood trickled from his lip down his chin.

Then something unexpected happened.

A man went up to Furniss and gave him a hug, wrapping one arm around the Nazi’s shoulders, and another arm around his shaved head.

“Why don’t you like me, dog?” the man asked Furniss.

The man, identified by the New York Daily News as Aaron Courtney, is a 31-year-old high school football coach in Gainesville. He said he wanted to show Furniss some love.

“I could have hit him, I could have hurt him . . . but something in me said, ‘You know what? He just needs love,’ ” Courtney told the Daily News.

The hug may have been a small act, but Courtney thinks it can speak volumes.

“It’s a step in the right direction. One hug can really change the world. It’s really that simple,” he said.

Courtney did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Furniss, a self-described white nationalist, explained his views to News4Jax.

“They want what we have. And we just want them to shut up and get on with life,” Furniss said. “They’re being raised up and it’s getting to the point where they want to push us down. That’s not right.”

Furniss could not be immediately reached for comment.

Courtney hadn’t originally planned on attending the protest. But he was surprised when he received a state of emergency notification on Monday, ahead of Spencer’s planned appearance, the Daily News reported.

Courtney didn’t recognize Spencer’s name, and decided to do some research.

“I found out about what kind of person he was and that encouraged me, as an African-American, to come out and protest,” Courtney said. “Because this is what we’re trying to avoid. It’s people like him who are increasing the distance . . . between people.”

Courtney was about to leave the protest, having already spent almost four hours at the scene, when he saw Furniss causing a scene in the crowd, the Daily News reported.

“I had the opportunity to talk to someone who hates my guts and I wanted to know why. During our conversation, I asked him, ‘Why do you hate me? What is it about me? Is it my skin color? My history? My dreadlocks?’ ” he said.

Courtney repeatedly asked Furniss for an answer, only to be met with silence and a blank look.

Exasperated, Courtney asked Furniss for a hug. He was initially reluctant, but as Courtney reached over the third time, Furniss reciprocated, wrapping his arms around Courtney.

“And I heard God whisper in my ear, ‘You changed his life,’ ” Courtney said.

“Why do you hate me?” Courtney asked Furniss one last time.

“I don’t know,” Furniss finally answered, Courtney said.

For Courtney, that was a good enough answer.

“I believe that was his sincere answer. He really doesn’t know,” Courtney said.

Inside the schoolSpencer’s speech was repeatedly disrupted and drowned out by people shouting at him.

After the speech, three men were arrested and charged with attempted homicide after arguing with protesters and firing a shot at them, police said.

eBay launches “the world’s first subconscious shopping experience”

Online shopping giant eBay has teamed up with specialist retailer Saatchi Art to create an experimental shopping experience, which brings together art and technology to uncover shoppers’ subconscious desires.

For just 48 hours, the two retailers invited a select number of guests to attend a personalised shopping event, called The Art of Shopping.

Before entering a gallery filled with artworks, all guests were hooked up to headsets incorporating electroencephalogram (EEG) technology – which monitors electrical activity in the brain.

This “mind-tracking technology” – supplied by tech company MyndPlay – was able to locate moments when the wearer was inspired by what they saw in front of them. It used this to create personalised shopping carts.

Robb Hattrell, vice president of eBay UK, described the technology as “the future of shopping”.

“Shopping has always been intensely personal,” he told Dezeen. “It’s an expression of what makes you, you.”

At The Art of Shopping, guests were taken through a series of gallery spaces. In the first, they were asked to interact with games on an iPad to help “warm up” their brain.

In the second and third spaces, they were encouraged to browse artworks and were asked to stand in front of the 10 pieces they liked best for at least 20 seconds. The paintings, sculptures and installations featured were all hand-picked for the project by Saatchi Art’s chief curator Rebecca Wilson.

At the end visitors were presented with a personalised report showing which pieces of art triggered the strongest brain activity, and a digital shopping cart containing the items based on their subconscious preferences.

“Using the backdrop of the ultimate place of inspiration, an art gallery, we opened the first subconscious shopping experience, enabling people to shop authentically, and creating shopping carts that reflected what makes them, them,” said Bradford Shellhammer, who is head of personalisation and engagement at eBay.

The algorithm used to match customers with artworks was developed by behavioural psychologists. It is designed to be used with the billion items on sale on eBay’s virtual marketplace.

Shellhammer – whose previous ventures include online design stores Bezar and Fab – claims the technology could be a game changer for companies like eBay, to better predict what customers are interested in.

“With over one billion items for sale at any one time on the eBay global marketplace, we know that we have something for everyone,” he said.

The eBay team embarked on the project after commissioning a report on the neuroscience of what motivates buyers.

The report investigated the difference between two types of buyers, ‘shop-y-cats’ who impulse-buy to fit in with trends, and ‘inspired shoppers’ who prefer to discover unique items.

The data showed that the former group found the shopping experience draining and quickly tired, whilst the more inspired shopper could browse for longer and experienced a prolonged emotional high at checkout.

“We know that inspired shopping delivers a prolonged adrenaline high at checkout, comparable to a Formula One driver finishing a circuit,” added Shellhammer.

eBay isn’t the only company exploring ways of offering personalised experiences to consumers – there are also designers looking into the idea.

Others include Dutch designer Merel Bekking, who is designing furniture based on the subconscious style preferences of her clients, while British designer Matthew Plummer-Fernandez has used an algorithm to create personalised driving companions.
