White Sox Baseball Announcer and Former Star Pitcher Claims He’s Psychic

White Sox Baseball Announcer and Former Star Pitcher Claims He’s Psychic 90

If you were psychic and a good athlete as well, in what sport would your performance be best enhanced by your hidden ability to know what’s coming? Baseball seems like a logical choice. You don’t even have to be right half the time to be a successful player – the Hall of Fame is full of guys who failed 3 out of every ten trips to the plate. Well, there’s one former player who claims to be psychic but it didn’t get him into the Hall of Fame. Maybe he should have been a designated hitter instead of a pitcher. The former player is Steve Stone and, while he’s not in Cooperstown, he excelled for a few seasons in the majors, was a star athlete in a number of other sports and is currently a top announcer. Did he have a secret advantage? If he did, was it legal?

“I’ve been psychic my whole life. It sounds really strange, and, if I play it up, people will laugh because nobody’s always right. I know it sounds strange, but I really know what’s going to happen.”

In an interview with the Chicago Sun Times, Steve Stone reveals the lifelong secret that he’s generally kept to himself, although his current and former partners say they’ve seen evidence of Stone’s unusual ability to see what’s going to happen next in a game. Is that a sign of psychic ability or an indication that Stone is as well-prepared as an announcer as he was as a successful athlete?

Born in a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, in 1947, Stone was a champion tennis and ping-pong player and a top golfer as well as being an outstanding pitcher in high school. At Kent State, he starred on the bowling, volleyball, and tennis teams, but was best known as a star pitcher whose catcher was the late Yankee great Thurman Munson. As a pro, he pitched for 11 seasons for the San Francisco Giants, Chicago Cubs, Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles, compiling a 107-93 record with a 3.97 ERA and 1.065 strikeouts. In 1980, he was an All Star and a Cy Young award winner with a major league-leading 25–7 record. Was it because of his slider or his psychic ability?

“Let me give you a life philosophy of mine. I believe there was a time in our history, in our development as human beings, when everyone had a psychic sense, but it was before we developed language skills … I try to listen to the inner voice.”

That sounds pretty vague … until you hear from Stone’s current broadcast partner, Jason Benetti – who calls Stone “Shaman Steve.”

“… there are times when Steve will, before something happens, take a piece of paper and write down what’s going to happen. I see him do it. After the play, he will flip it over and it will be what happened … I’m hard to convince about this, but I’ve seen it enough that I can believe that he sees things … He’s got a lot of occult in him. I’m weirded out by it, but I also kind of adore it. Of all the people I’ve met, I would say he’s the most likely to be psychic.”

“Frequently” means dozens of times and that, combined with Stone’s alleged perfect record at these in-game predictions, has convinced Benetti. Did Stone use this ability as an athlete? He doesn’t say, and his major league record – outside of that one stellar season – doesn’t reflect it. On the other hand, being a psychic can’t fix injuries, and that’s what ultimately ended Stone’s career.

Would using a psychic ability in sports be legal? Why not? Stone played with Gaylord Perry, who admitted to throwing illegal spitballs throughout his career and is in the Hall of Fame nonetheless. Is it any different than being born with 20-10 vision or extremely long arms or a photographic mind or other traits and abilities that could help a pitcher?

“The extrasensory stuff, I was going to write a book about that, about all my experiences, because they’ve been unusual. But I didn’t want to do it because I know I’m a rational, sane person, but if I would explain everything that has happened to me, I have a feeling there would be some people who would doubt my rationality or my sanity.”

We’ll just have to wait and hope for a book.

Tesla autopilot sensor recorded “ghost” in an empty cemetery

Tesla autopilot sensor recorded "ghost" in an empty cemetery 105

A Tesla electric car with an activated autopilot function recorded an invisible person who allegedly moved around the cemetery. Social network users jokingly noted in the comments that, most likely, this is some new function from Elon Musk, which allows you to see ghosts.

In the United States, a Tesla electric car with an activated autopilot function recorded an invisible person who allegedly moved through a cemetery.

The corresponding video was posted by Twitter user Ovidiu Maciuc.

The recording shows how a silhouette of a man appears on the monitor of an electric car, moving around the cemetery. After that, the driver raises the camera and starts filming the graveyard through the windshield, but there are no people there.

After some time, the “ghost” went in the opposite direction from Tesla and disappeared from the on-board computer screen.

Social network users jokingly noted in the comments that, most likely, this is some new function from Elon Musk, which allows you to see ghosts.

For many though, if you take into account the comments, the video seemed rather creepy. Some even tried to guess what the navigation system actually showed.

Some users thought the system could recognize ghosts. Others refuted this version and said that the reason for all this is an insufficiently accurate sensor, which was used for the equipment of the Tesla car.

Earlier it became known that Tesla electric cars in the near future may receive a new function with which they can talk with pedestrians. For this, American cars will be equipped with special external speakers. 

In addition, Tesla cars in the future will receive the option to change the horn and sound of movement at low speeds to warn pedestrians. According to Elon Musk, among the sounds of movement there will be the sound of the clatter of a horse’s hooves, and as a whistle – the bleating of a goat.

Mysterious energy source melts Tel Aviv sidewalks, leading to the evacuation of several buildings in Israel

Mysterious energy source melts Tel Aviv sidewalks, leading to the evacuation of several buildings in Israel 106

About two weeks ago, Tel Aviv residents noticed that the concrete surface outside their homes was heating up and steam was coming out of the ground. Tests showed that steam that reached 60 ° C (140 ° F) was water based.

The witness explains: “I was afraid that there was a power line in the area and asked a worker to dig out the ground with a shovel. Steam suddenly came out. I imagined it was probably a geyser. It seemed to me that this was a geological incident – also because there were no problems with electricity in the building. “

Although the experts did not find any hazardous substances or any risk to the stability of buildings at the site, residents as well as kindergartens in the area were evacuated.

Officials described the heat source as “trapped energy” of unknown origin.

Work continues, steam is still rising and the ground is still hot. It is currently unclear what is causing the warming. Note the hole dug in the area. The area is still blocked.

Mysterious origins

City officials said they will “continue to monitor the temperature of the earth, which is expected to cool down for a long time, and will continue to investigate the causes of the unusual event.”

Israel Electric Corporation has not found a connection between heat and power in the area.

The Israel Geological Survey confirmed the rise in temperature after testing ground and water temperature levels, but said it has not yet found an explanation.

Despite their best efforts, municipal officials, the fire department, Israel Electric Corporation and the Ministry of the Environment have yet to find a source of heat.

Meanwhile, the Tel Aviv municipality has informed dozens of evacuees that they can return to their homes. However, residents are not going to return until they receive a detailed account of the source of the mysterious event.

“They evacuated us because they were concerned about our safety, and now they are urging us to return without any convincing explanation. How can you be sure that there is no more danger? “

The night sky in southern Taiwan shows a weird red moon alarming netizens: 2021 disaster year omen?

The night sky in southern Taiwan shows a weird red moon alarming netizens: 2021 disaster year omen? 107

Some people in Chiayi, Taiwan took pictures of a large dark red moon hanging in the night sky on the first night of 2021 and uploaded them to Facebook. There are also people in Tainan who have photographed the rare “red moon”. The weird scene has aroused heated discussions among netizens. Some people worry that an earthquake may occur, while others suspect that this is a precursor to the year of disaster in 2021?

Yesterday, on January 1 at about 8:00 in the evening, Chiayi residents shared a photo of “2021’s first red moon” on Facebook. As you can see in the photo, the weather was quite good at that time. There was a clear big round moon in the night sky, but it was a dark red moon, which was very different from the usual moon.

Later, people in Kaohsiung and Tainan also posted photos of the red moon they had taken.

The weird and rare “big red moon” immediately attracted the attention of netizens. Some people think that such a sight is caused by air pollution, and some people think that the red moon is “extremely beautiful”, but many people worry about whether it is a harbinger before the disaster ? 

“Hope is not a harbinger of disaster~”, “A harbinger of disaster in 2021???”, “It looked uneasy”, “After seeing the red moon, I hope everyone will be safe”.

Some netizens worry that this is a pre- earthquake omen.

“Remember the red moon before the 921 earthquake (omen)”, “earthquake precursors”, “I feel that there will be an earthquake again recently”, and “It seems that 2021 will be another year of bloody disaster.”

The British clairvoyant Craig Hamilton-Parker published his prediction for 2021 on YouTube in December last year, stating that, as far as the world is concerned, 2021 will be a year full of social unrest, armed conflict and political changes. There will be difficult times right now until 2025.

He also predicted that the biggest worry is climate and earthquakes. A tsunami will occur near Japan. Large earthquakes will occur in the Himalayas, Iran and the Americas. There will also be problems such as floods, dams bursting, and huge icebergs obstructing shipping. Until 2025, the severity of environmental problems will gradually increase.
