CCTV Shows Train Crash After Driver Dozed Off

Posted by Anonymous on April 2, 2014

Video has emerged of a train derailing at a busy Chicago station – as it was revealed its driver nodded off at the controls.

News of the operator’s admission was confirmed by a federal investigator, who is among those probing the crash at O’Hare International Airport.

National Transportation Safety Board investigator Ted Turpin said the driver only woke up when the train jumped off the tracks and hit the escalator, injuring more than 30 people.

Mr Turpin said the woman told investigators she had also fallen asleep on the job in February, partially missing a station.

Chicago Transit Authority officials said their records showed the operator said she “closed her eyes for a moment” but that she did not indicate that she “dozed off.”

The CTA said it would reduce the speed of trains entering the station.

Passengers should have a way to check to see if their driver is asleep. I don’t understand, however, what made the train jump the tracks. Wouldn’t it just keep right on going if she didn’t stop? I’m guessing this was an end of the line type stop with no track beyond this station?

Fear of Werewolf Causes Curfew

Posted by Anonymous on February 17, 2014

This report comes out of Brazil. It seems a man, known as Pingo, had a close encounter with what he described as a werewolf. Pingo described it as a black monster standing about 5 foot tall. Pingo at first became the target of jokes around the town, until others told about hearing and seeing something strange.

The incident is being taken seriously and the city of Sao Goncalo dos Campos, in the Metropolitan Region of Feira de Santana how issued a curfew of 9pm for the city. The curfew was enacted about 2 weeks ago. This is being covered by major newspapers in the region.

A local resident of the area released a home security video of the possible werewolf. What do you make of it? Hoax or misidentification?

Seems like an ape escape.

Video: What happens when lava engulfs a can of Coca Cola

Posted by Anonymous on February 16, 2014

Here … cans of Coca Cola are placed in the path of an advancing 2000 degree F lava flow in Hawaii. The first had a hole punched in the top to stop it from exploding while the second was still sealed.

The cans are gradually absorbed by the oozing flow and the cans eventually melted completely, according to Brian Lowry, who braved the heat to film the sequence.

This from the same person shows perhaps the ultimate way to cook a tin of ravioli:

Piano Sound Shoot out + Pedrito Martinez Group – “Que Palo” Live at Guantanamera

Posted by Anonymous on January 28, 2014

Tonight I was looking for the best sounding piano plug-in for my songs. I’m currently using Piano One which is free.

There is a great shootout here: http://purgatorycreek.com/documents/25.html and I decided that I like the RD700GX Expressive Grand sound, but I don’t think there is a VST plug in.

I ran across this as an example of the sound. I don’t speak the language so I have no idea what this is about, but they have a great sound:

¡Qué palo! (idiom, slang) = How embarrasing!

¡Qué palo si ocurre! = What a real bummer…

¡Qué palo! (literal) = What a (wooden) stick!

Vaccine ‘pioneer’ admits adding cancer-causing virus to Vaccine

Posted by Anonymous on January 24, 2014

In this interview Dr. Maurice Hilleman reveals some astounding revelations. He admits that Merck drug company vaccines (Polio) had been deliberately contaminated with SV40, a cancer-causing monkey virus from 1953 – 63.

For years, researchers suggested that millions of vials of polio vaccine, contaminated with SV40, infected individuals which caused human tumors, and by 1999, molecular evidence of SV40 infections were showing up in children born after 1982. Some experts now suggest the virus may have remained in the polio vaccine until as late as 1999.

In 2002, the journal Lancet published compelling evidence that contaminated polio vaccine was responsible for up to half of the 55,000 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cases that were occurring each year. And there is the likelihood that there was an importing and spreading of the AIDS virus in the same manner, as revealed in the video.

At first no one could fathom how the virus had been transmitted into the human population, but this shocking video proves that it was deliberately added to the vaccine by Dr. Maurice Hilleman, which was “good science” at that time.

Just Who is Dr. Maurice Hilleman?

Now, for those of you who may think Dr. Hilleman was just another crackpot (he passed away in 2005), think again. He was, and still is, the leading vaccine pioneer in the history of vaccines. He developed more than three dozen vaccines—more than any other scientist in history—and was the developer of Merck’s vaccine program.

He was a member of the U.S. National Academy of Science, the Institute of Medicine, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and the American Philosophical Society, and received a special lifetime achievement award from the World Health Organization. …

Video: Cooking tip: Fastest way to separate egg whites from yolks + Egg within an Egg

Posted by Anonymous on January 13, 2014

In keeping with the theme of this blog, here’s a strange egg situation:

EGG WITHIN AN EGG: This extraordinarily rare situation occurs when an egg that is almost ready to be laid reverses engines into the reproductive tract, meeting up with another egg-in-progress.

It gets another layer of white/albumen and a new layer of shell before being laid.

The cause is not known.
