Did ace WWI pilot shoot down a UFO ?

German fighter pilot ace, Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen, also known as the Red Baron, is officially credited with shooting down 80 enemy planes during World War I, but a sensational new book claims that the man considered the flight ace supreme was also the first pilot in history to shoot down a UFO.

I’s a big boast, but the Red Baron has a big reputation. So much so that in his new book, UFOs of the First World War, author Nigel Watson recounts the 1999 confession by the Red Baron’s fellow pilot, Peter Waitzrick, who allegedly witnessed the epic encounter in the skies between the Red Baron and the UFO.

Waitzrick waited until he was 105-years-old, a good 80 years after the Baron’s alleged dogfight with interplanetary visitors, until confessing what he saw in the crystal blue skies above Belgium during the spring of 1917.

The Red Baron and Waitzrick were on an early morning mission when they ran afoul of what they described as looking like an upside down silver saucer covered in flashing orange lights.

No doubt well aware that curiosity killed the cat, and also shot the fighter pilot who stopped to pause for breath, the Red Baron instinctively allowed his abject terror at the sight of this unidentified flying object get the better of him and didn’t hesitate to open fire and mow that mother down.

The Mirror reports that Waitzrick claims he witnessed the entire encounter between the Baron and the aliens.

“We were terrified because we’d never seen anything like it before. The Baron immediately opened fire and the thing went down like a rock, shearing off tree limbs as it crashed into the woods.”

Admittedly, the Red Baron was in a league of his own when it came to his skills as a fighter pilot, but was Manfred Albrecht Freiherr von Richthofen, handicapped as he was by the technical limitations of the Fokker Dr.I triplane and the Albatros D.III Serial No. 789/16, so naturally gifted when it came to flying, that he was capable of gunning down a UFO that presumably had the capacity to journey through galaxies and was capable of doing all sort of mind-blowing crazy things?

Waitzrick believes so. He claims that there were two pilots in the the UFO, and after crashing they climbed from the wreck before fleeing into the trees. Perhaps these extraterrestrials were simply teenage joyriders from another dimension who had bitten off a little more than they could chew?

Who knows! One thing’s for sure, although Waitzrick and his squadron originally believed the UFO was a secret US aircraft, when they became familiarised with reports about UFOS, they remained convinced that what they saw were visitors from another planet.

“There’s no doubt in my mind that the Baron shot down some kind of spacecraft from another planet and those little guys who ran off into the woods were space aliens of some kind.”

NASA accidentally publishes images of alien movement on mars

For years, scientists have been debating the origin of Mars. Although we have already found evidence of possible liquid water and methane suggesting that at some time in the past, about four billion years ago, the red planet could have hosted some kind of extraterrestrial life, so far no one really knows about the conditions that prevailed back then. Was it a warm, humid planet, or cold and cold?(Alien movement on mars)

This has been a great mystery to scientists who have been researching certain models to determine the climate that prevailed on our neighboring planet. The exact answer to the question is still unknown, but despite all the studies there are many who doubt the versions offered by the different space agencies, especially NASA. As we have been saying for some time, conspiracy theorists have been denouncing for years how the American space agency deceives the population, through photomontages of an arid and lifeless planet, also offering absurd and unfounded explanations with the only objective that we continue to think we are alone in the universe, or perhaps to prepare us for the great revelation in the near future.

But whatever the reason, you have to be very careful with the lies, because they have short legs. As a sequence of images that has just been published by NASA, they show a mysterious alien figure moving on the red planet.

Irrefutable evidence

On June 7, 2018, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, better known as NASA, revealed that there were founds of organic compounds and methane on Mars. Just a few days after this surprising news, an independent researcher in spatial anomalies claims to have discovered an irrefutable proof of life on the red planet.

To substantiate his claim, Tyler Glockner, a UFO expert who runs the YouTube channel ‘Secureteam10’, published a series of images taken by NASA’s Curiosity rover. When these snaps come together, they show a foreign body moving through the martian surface . Interestingly, when the image of the object is enlarged, it shows a shadow that rules out the possibility that it is a reflection of the lens or a problem in the camera (you can see the first original snapshot  here and the second one here ).

And because it seems to be irrefutable evidence that NASA hides information, Glockner’s video has become a viral phenomenon in social networks, where conspiracy theorists claim that the object in the sequences of images is a be an alien living on Mars. There is even someone who has dared to speculate that NASA has never reached Mars, so the mysterious object could correspond to a living animal on the island of Devon.

Since NASA began the exploration on the red planet, the first voices emerged assuring that everything was a montage. Time later, the US space agency began testing on the island the largest uninhabited island on Earth, located in the Arctic Circle in the far north of Canada. Scientists use this place to simulate conditions similar to those of Mars, as well as being a testing ground for their rovers. It is for this reason that many people claim that the images they show us are actually sent from the island of Devon.

But others argued that the object detected on the red planet has a face, so it could be an extraterrestrial spirit roaming the Martian surface. Leaving aside the theories that this mysterious object could be in motion, it seems that these new evidences would show that the aliens could be living under the surface of the Martian surface. And the recent statement from NASA regarding the presence of organic methane and compounds is an indication that there really are some anomalies under the surface of Mars.

Do you think this object proves once and for all the existence of extraterrestrial life on Mars? Or could it be a simple reflection of the lens or a problem in the camera? It’s up to you.

FIFA’s Video-Assisted Referees Aren’t Perfect, But Neither Are Human Referees

Video-assisted referees are making their debut at this year’s 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. And people have a lot of feelings.

In addition the usual ref and his team of assistants, each game will feature one video assistant referee, three assistants, and four replay operators sitting in a sweaty remote booth in Moscow, accessing some 33 camera feeds to help decide on close calls.

The video assistant referee team will be assisting the on-field referee make decisions such as:

  • Did the ball cross the goal line?
  • Was that really a penalty?
  • Did that foul really deserve a red card?
  • Was the wrong player accused of an incident?

It’s a particularly controversial topic for the billions of hot-blooded soccer fans around the world. After all, yelling at your TV screen for a bad call is just as much part of the World Cup experience as watching Cristiano Ronaldo score yet another goal for Portugal.

So any changes to that delicate ecosystem will inevitably be met with plenty of anger and frustration. In a passionate editorial, the New Scientist calls using the new tech a “losing battle” that will squash soccer’s cultural value.

And their cries aren’t entirely unjustified. In 2017, the technology failed altogether when it didn’t catch an offside before a game-deciding goal. “On this occasion the technology itself failed and the broadcast angles required were unavailable,” Greg O’Rourke, FIFA’s head of the Australian A-League, tells ABC Australia.

And then there’s the difficulty of relaying the info from the remote team to the refs on the field. That delay can make decisions drag on, taking time away from the game itself.

But human referees aren’t perfect, either. No human is omniscient or gifted with 360 degree vision. So how are refs supposed to make the correct call every time? Objective, evidence-based refereeing has a place in the sport, no matter how much it relies on fair play and good sportsmanship (which, yes, is not reality).

Yes, the technology isn’t seamlessly integrated into the game. But it’s a good thing to evolve the sport to a point where refs can at least make better calls. So bring on the robots, because I want the instant replay on the most recent contended call, and I refuse to settle for less.

The Giants Found in Romania and the CIA Cover-Up

Everyone has heard of the giant characters of legend, sometimes called cyclops or ogres. Giants were generally presented as creatures so big that the earth trembled when they walked.

It seems however that the giants are not just fairy tales, considering the fact that their remains have been found all over the world. The mystery of their civilization remains to this day and there is even a sort of secrecy in this regard, a convention to sweep any evidence of their existence under the rug.

In the 1940’s, archaeologists were overseeing a dig at Argedava in Romania, searching for priceless artifacts within the ruins of what was once the greatest citadel of the Dacian leader Burebista. The locals did most of the digging and they were glad to be making a little extra during those times of hardship.

Among them was Ionita Florea, now an old man well in his eighties. He was the one who dug up an enormous skull, two or three times the size of a regular one. When he notified the archaeologists, the workers were quickly dismissed and the researchers resumed the digging themselves. Their findings were loaded onto trucks and shipped away with the utmost secrecy. By the end of the excavation, they had collected around 80 skeletons, most of them complete. They had also recovered giant ceramic pots filled with grains.

To this day, nobody knows where the skeletons are.

This is not an isolated incident. In more recent years, villagers in Scaieni uncovered an ancient giants’ graveyard while planting an apple orchard. Once again, it was the skulls’ giant sizes that puzzled everyone. Alongside the complete skeletons, the villagers also found pottery fragments, jewelry and strange metal statues about 3 feet tall. A team of archaeologists came, dug everything up and vanished. No public statement was made and the locals refuse to discuss what happened after they announced their finding.

Were they strong-armed into silence? Is this event part of a greater conspiracy?

There are plenty legends about giants in the area. According to folklore, giants once inhabited the mountains and forests around Scaieni. In fact, huge thrones were found sculpted in the mountainside, in an area inaccessible to regular human beings. Legends tell that there are two gigantic underground vaults beneath the mountains, holding the giants’ ancient treasures. Could these vaults be real? If found, what stories would they tell?

In 2009, a local news channel started an investigation about the giants and their secret tunnels beneath the Bucegi mountains. Just as their report went on air, they received a live phone call from a man who refused to identify himself. The journalists were threatened to stop their ongoing investigation or else. As the mysterious man put it, they were “playing a dangerous game.”

“Stop talking about the Bucegi [mountains]. Information like that must not be made public and there are certain structures that deal with cases such as this. You do not wish to know us, you don’t want to interview us. That’s all I want to say.” He then hung up and the broadcast was interrupted. Was this an orchestrated hoax or a live case of a threatening secret cover-up? Only the journalists know and they refuse to discus the subject.

In an intriguing twist, the airspace above the Bucegi Plateau is a restricted no-fly zone. Many sources point to the CIA being involved.

Incidents like these happen all around the world. There is a distinct lack of physical evidence whenever people report findings of giant skeletons. Authorities arrive first, leaving behind hastily covered excavations, no artifacts and muted locals. One might think something really strange is going on.
