Strange Sounds Recorded Coming from Greenland’s Skies 

A YouTube user (‘Finn Enoksen’) shared video clip of strange sounds he recorded that seemed to come from the skies over Greenland on January 4th:

“I hear that strange sound like for 1hour but sometimes it silence for 5 or 10 minute, it little bit hard to heard because that strange sound is not loud.”

People love girl’s ‘iconic’ Christmas list including laundry detergent and $4,000

One dad may be regretting asking his daughter what she wants for Christmas this year after she returned with a 26 line wish list which may require a lottery win to fulfill.

People were loving both her bravery and the phonetic spelling of the items she’s hoping to find under the tree after her dad posted the list to Twitter with the caption: ‘My 10 year old daughter must be out of her mind with this Christmas list’.

Santa will need to work closely with Apple as she begins the list with an iPhone 11, AirPods and a new MacBook Air.

There were also the usual popular requests, such as clothes, make up, a real bunny – and clothes for the bunny.

Good luck, dad

But it was choices like ‘Chanel purs’, ‘purfum’, ‘julery’ and particularly ‘asenchal oil’ which really grabbed people’s attention.

One replied “Asenchal oil lmaooooo I love her” as another wrote “That baby sounded it OUT”.

Others were simply wondering what a 10-year-old was planning to do with $4,000, with one calling it a ‘rockstar move’.

“Right like oh yea lemme ask for 4K too,” said one reply. “Right by the bunny clothes.”

“I think she’s planning to move out,” said another.

The tweet has racked up more than 85,000 likes, 16,000 retweets and 3,600 replies. Here’s a few of the best:

We’ve got a feeling someone might be a little disappointed when they wake up on Christmas morning as others pointed out that it’s pretty likely she’ll only be unwrapping clothes and make up on December 25 – but were glad to see ‘mama has her priorities in check’.

The good news for parents is that although Christmas may be a time of goodwill to all men etc, it’s also a time of bargaining with your children to get them to behave.

Advice for parents

They know the only way to get these presents is to make it on to Santa’s good list and now there’s a new app where Father Christmas will personally call your child to give them a stern warning about misbehaving.

‘Message from Santa’ will give kids a personalised call, text message or voicemail – and you can add as many little ones as you wish.

It can, of course, also be used to endorse good behaviour, with St Nick dropping your kids a line to tell them to keep up their angelic behaviour.

The insane treatment in alternative medicine: gold needles under the skin

For thousands of years, humanity has invented new “methods” to deal with chronic pain.

Almost everything is used – from snake oil and bee stings to music therapy and meditation. But one of the weirdest and scariest remedies is putting gold needles under your skin.

A few centuries ago, in the Asian acupuncture, small needles (or rather thin short threads) made of gold were used. Now, this method is practiced in some places and remote areas of Korea, China and other countries.

These numerous small “white worms”, clearly visible in the X-ray images below, are in fact hundreds of gold needles embedded by the healer under the patient’s skin. This procedure is not cheap at all.

It is usually performed by a person without medical background who often does not even wash his hands before the procedure. A special acupuncture needle is used to insert the pieces of gold thread under the skin.

Gold sticks are inserted into the part of the body that is suffering from pain. If a toothache – the gold is inserted deep into the gums, if it is in the knee – under the skin of the knee, etc. Subsequently, because of body movement, the rods can go deeper into the flesh and even to the bone.

Gold is believed to be “pure metal” and will not cause infections in the body. The brain will send pain impulses that will be transferred from the body to the gold needles and therefore, the patient will not have pain at this location.

No doctor or doctor has yet confirmed that such a procedure saves pain. But, doctors report people who have sought their help who already have very serious health problems as a result of the gold needles in their body.

Recently, in an American magazine New England Journal of Medicine an article by Seoul doctors about a similar procedure was published, with pictures of their patients.

In particular, there is the mention of a 39-year-old Korean woman who has been trying to cure her chronic headache with acupuncture with gold needles for many years. However, instead of relieving her suffering, inflammation was formed in places where the needles were under the skin.

Another issue besides inflammation is the aforementioned “migration” of the gold needles inside the patient’s body. When these filaments reach the nerves, they can cause even more pain.

On their way into the body, the needles break into smaller parts, which later makes it difficult to remove them with surgery.

The same medical journal mentions a 73-year-old patient who treated her headache with such needles and received convulsive twitches on her face instead of relief – gold needles damaged her facial nerves.

Most commonly, the mad gold thread treatment is used to treat arthritis, headache and back pain.

Is That Viral Catfish/Egg/Coke/Mentos Vid Real? An Investigation

What began as a day like any other ended with a haunting quest to source a viral video of a man apparently capturing catfish using Coca-Cola brand soda, Mentos, and an ordinary egg.

If all that left you feeling puzzled, you’re not alone. Originally posted to YouTube on November 1, the video in question shows an unidentified man adding Coke, Mentos, and an egg yolk to a muddy hole. The man then reaches into the hole and produces — presto! — not one, not two, but three catfish.

Clips of the video started circulating on both Twitter and Reddit this past Wednesday, spawning questions about where the fish came from and how or why the trick would ever work. The dominant theory, prematurely endorsed by some blogs, was that the hole must likely be connected to a larger body of water. The fish, according to the theory, was attracted by the egg, and swam into the hole before “suffocating” on the Coke and Mentos solution.

Far more likely, according to a detailed Futurism investigation, is that the video is at least partially a hoax.

Another possibility we considered was that the video was a bizarre viral marketing scheme, so Futurism reached out to both the Coke and Mentos brands to ask. A spokesperson for the Mentos brand denied involvement and added, “this is not a practice our company or our brands would condone,” while the Coca-Cola company has not responded at the time of publication.

The source of the video is a fledgling, vaguely surreal YouTube channel called “Technique Tools.” According to YouTube, it was created in 2015 and attracted modest attention until its most recent catfish post, which has accrued an impressive 1.8 million views at press time.

Technique Tools doesn’t list contact information, but its account offers other clues. One playlist of Technique Tools’ videos includes several in which Coke and Mentos are being poured on various animals, sometimes along with other substances such as toothpaste or eggs. The descriptions of some videos offer puzzling disclaimers.

“The crocodile is our pet. Coca Cola and mentos [sic] react nothing with the crocodile,” reads one. “Action in this video made b [sic] a professional. Do not repeat! It Can [sic] be dangerous,” reads another.

The most telling, though, comes from a video similar to the viral post, also uploaded this month. It claims the videos are planned, scripted, and made for fun, as well as disclaimer that the fish in this instance, “come out by pushing behind the video at the left side.”

On the reaction of catfish to eggs and Coca-Cola, the science is more exact.

Most catfish have a sharp sense of taste and some, including the Channel Catfish, which appears to be our viral star based on its four sets of whiskers, have taste receptors on their bodies.

Channel Catfish feed primarily on small fishes and aquatic insects but have been known to eat small birds, according to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The effectiveness of eggs as catfish bait isn’t something that appears to have been tested in the lab setting, however.

As for the Coke and Mentos, it’s much easier to explain why dumping soda on animals isn’t a nice idea.

In humans, our lungs work to exchange oxygen from the air to replenish our blood cells and exhale waste gasses. In fish, gills work similarly. When oxygenated water is passed over specialized tissues, oxygen from the water is exchanged into the fish’s bloodstream.

When there isn’t enough oxygen in the water fish can indeed suffocate, which is actually a big problem in the ecology of our modern oceans where shifting currents have created pockets of low-oxygen water. Diluting the oxygen concentration in water by adding carbon dioxide from soda makes extracting oxygen much more difficult, which can cause a fish to panic and try to escape.

As a science lesson, this video offers several insights into animal — and human — behavior. However, as a fishing tactic, this method probably isn’t likely to net you a whopping catfish. Still, we can always count on the depths of the internet to inspire the human imagination.
