Giant Underwater Humanoids Found in Mountains Of Central Asia

http://bit.ly/2wLu4Zm

“The area is known as Issik Kul “Warm Lake” it is located in the northern
Tian Shan mountains of central Asia. This area is fairly cold…yet
despite this, the lake never seems to freeze.”

“A Kyrgyz legend states that there was a sunken city at the bottom of the
lake. The last reigning ruler was King Ossounes. They were known for
being a giant with long shaped ears. They were also able to fly between
each of the mountain peaks.”

It would appear that UFO reports in the area prompted a researcher to
investigate and some over-sized human skeletons were found in bottom of
the lake all wearing the same silver amulets. This led to Soviet divers being sent who went deeper than before and suddenly found themselves surrounded by the beings in this picture. Apparently the divers tried to catch one, but this attempt didn’t quite work out 🙂

Tall White EBEs Inspect Crop Circles in UK

http://www.freaklore.com/tall-white-aliens-inspect-crop-circle-in-uk

“Back on July 6th of 2009, a rather strange event took place. There
are not many who have heard about this paranormal moment. This
incredible encounter was experienced by a police sergeant from
Marlborough, Wiltshire in the United Kingdom. At the time, the sergeant
was off duty when this happened. He drove over towards a field location,
where a reported crop circle formation had been made.

Many
sightings of crop circles have appeared across the world at various
locations. What made this one special, was what the policeman had
witnessed with his own eyes. As he approached towards the field, he was
watching his footing at first, as the ground was uneven in this area.
When he glanced up, he couldn’t believe what was actually standing
there.

At first, he thought these were scientists dressed in
hazmat type suits, taking readings of the crop circle. However, as he
walked closer towards them, a cold shiver went down his spine. These
were not in fact men at all–but something else entirely. They stood
approximately 6 feet tall, with long flowing blonde hair. The sergeant
shouted out to them, with no initial response.

He then mentioned hearing crackling sounds of static electricity coming
from the area as well. It was during this moment, as he wandered closer
towards them–the trio of them ran away…faster than humanly possible. The
officer was puzzled at what happened, but he knew what he witnessed was
something special indeed….”

“At first he thought they were forensic officers as they
were dressed in white coveralls. He stopped his car and approached the
field. ‘The figures were all over 6 ft and had blond hair. They seemed
to be inspecting the crop. When he got to the edge of the field he heard
what he believed to be a sound not dissimilar to static electricity.

“This crackling noise seemed to be running through the field and the crop was moving gently, close to where the noise was.

“He
shouted to the figures who, at first, ignored him, not glancing at him.
When he tried to enter the field they looked up and began running.

“He
said; ‘They ran faster than any man I have ever seen. I’m no slouch but
they were moving so fast. I looked away for a second and when I looked
back they were gone.

“I then got scared. The noise was still
around but I got an uneasy feeling and headed for the car. For the rest
of the day I had a pounding headache I couldn’t shift.”

Man With Giant Scrotum

http://www.freaklore.com/man-with-giant-scrotum

“This unfortunate man named Dan Maurer is suffering from an over-sized
scrotum. This disorder is known as scrotal lymph edema. It is a rather
rare condition which has affected men. It is also referred to as scrotal
elephantiasis which is found generally by obese men.

Patients
with this unusual disorder suffer from not being able to walk normally
and often are afflicted with intense pain and discomfort.
The
massive enlargement of the scrotum is from the thickening of tissue and
fluid build up. Typically, the skin becomes bumpy and irregular, the
penis also becomes buried within the tissue.”

“A picture is worth a thousand words, but not all pictures are created equal. The pictures we usually feature on Thinking Humanity can
be cute, beautiful, funny, or enchanting, but these pictures are
powerful. They are gripping and unforgettable because of the volumes
they speak about the human condition – about some of the best and worst
moments of contemporary human existence…”

Tardigrades to Live on Earth till the Sun Dies

http://bit.ly/2uUQkz4

We have previously shared an amazing experiment by Japanese
scientists on tardigrades. They have actually been brought back to life
after spending 30 years in zero temperature. Also named water bears or
moss piglets, these tardigrades were kept frozen from past 30 years and
when they were exposed to the normal room temperature, they started to
reproduce. That’s amazing!!!

These eight-legged microscopic animals can easily survive the
severest climatic conditions, be it melting heat or zero temperatures.
They can easily survive without any food or water for as long as 30
years. A recent study proves this half a millimeter creature to be
immensely tough. They can outlive all the humans.”

Some Celebrities Exciting Previous Careers

http://bit.ly/2wBtWqK

“The new long hard slog for the pinnacle
of Mount Celeb. Unless you’re the success of a reality TV show,
celebrity only comes after years of perform, taking odd jobs to cover
the bills and struggling constant rejection (if you are the winner of a
television show, the rejection employs you’re famous…). The majority of
celebs stick to the tried-and-tested jobs associated with waitress,
bartender and burger-flipper before they make it, however there are
others who have better jobs. No doubt the planets of
adult-film-set-design and cosmetics for the dead were i am sorry to lose
these particular people to the field of showbiz…but we’re glad that
they finally found their real calling. Delve into the dishonest days of

The Balloon Tank

http://www.baraskit.se/random/archive/85/balloon_tank.html

A balloon is a flexible bag filled with a gas, such
as helium, hydrogen, nitrous oxide or air. Early
balloons were made of dried animal bladders. Modern
balloons can be made from materials such as rubber,
latex, polychloroprene or a nylon fabric. Some balloons
are purely decorative, while others are used for
specific purposes such as meteorology, medical treatment,
military defense, or transportation. A balloon’s
properties, including its low density and relatively
low cost, have led to a wide range of applications…”
