    • Investigator Claims 'Ufo Wreckage' Is Evidence Aliens Visited The Earth 250,000 Years Ago

      The discovery of an ancient piece of aluminium is being hailed as evidence that aliens visited Earth 250,000 years ago. The mysterious hunk of metal was found in Romania during the 1970s, when the country was under communist rule. Now tests at a lab in Lausanne, Switzerland, have revealed that the strange fragment of metal is made up of 90 percent aluminium and is 250,000 years old. Aluminium was not produced by mankind until about 200 years ago, so the discovery of the large chunk that could be up to 250,000 years old is being held up as a sensational find. Gheorghe Cohal, the Deputy Director of the Romanian Ufologists Association, told local media: "Lab tests concluded it is an old UFO fragment

    • ‘I feel like I was the victim’: Former high school teacher blames student for seducing her

      She was a 24-year-old substitute teacher. He was a 17-year-old high school student. And over the course of an illicit, months-long relationship during the 2015-2016 school year in Cedar Rapids, she admits, the pair had sex “hundreds of times.” Mary Beth Haglin was charged in July with sexual exploitation by a teacher. But now, Haglin claims that not only is she innocent of committing any crime, she’s actually the victim in the relationship. Haglin appeared on the “Dr. Phil” show this week and accused the student of hatching an elaborate plan of romantic seduction, then threatening to “burn her life down” if she ended the relationship. In recent months, Haglin claims, she’s been fired from her

    • There's a chance Eric Trump hasn't paid for a cup of lemonade for years

      Eric Trump appears to have committed one of the cardinal sins of fast food: Putting a soft drink in a free water cup. The noted map enthusiast was caught with a clear cup of lemonade in his hand at an In-N-Out restaurant after Wednesday's presidential debate.  Although Trump's stolen beverage was conveniently absent from his own Instagram photo, the truth emerged when he took a a pic with another customer...who is now an inadvertent whistleblower. SEE ALSO: The Trumpkin is back to make Halloween terrifying again this is a photo of my homey grant with trumps kid at in-n-out & trumps kid is drinking lemonade outta the free water cup... — Kush Vonnegut (@xwnklmnx) October 20, 2016 For the record, In-N-Out confirmed to BuzzFeed that clear plastic cups are indeed for water only, so Trump was clearly on the wrong side of the law here. But after seeing something as viscerally disturbing as this theft, it's natural to still have a few questions. For instance:  Why did Eric Trump elect not to buy a cup of lemonade? Has Eric Trump ever paid for a cup of lemonade? Has his wife's purchase of a drink created a loophole that allows Eric Trump to take some of her drink and put it in his cup? Can a nice cup of lemonade, one of our society's best achievements, ever truly be owned? How do you celebrate after a big @realdonaldtrump win?! #InNOut #teamtrump #MAGA  A photo posted by Lara Trump (@laraleatrump) on Oct 19, 2016 at 9:53pm PDT Anyway, stealing a fountain beverage is an unforgivable offense and we cannot imagine ever doing it. Ever.  Nope, we have never done this.

    • Secret Nazi military base discovered on Arctic island

      A secret Nazi military base abandoned more than 70 years ago was recently rediscovered by Russian scientists, The Independent reported. The base, located in the Arctic island of Alexandra Land, served as a "tactical weather station" for the Nazis during World War II, when knowledge of the weather was vital to determining when to move troops, equipment, and ships. Because of the base's name — "Schatzgraber" or "Treasure Hunter" — some also think it was used for "the pursuit of ancient relics," The Independent reported. The base is believed to have been built in 1942, the year after Adolf Hitler invaded Russia. However, the Nazis stationed there were forced to abandon the post in 1944 after they

    • U.S. warship challenges China's claims in South China Sea

      By Idrees Ali and Matt Spetalnick WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A U.S. navy destroyer sailed near islands claimed by China in the South China Sea on Friday, drawing a warning from Chinese warships to leave the area. The U.S. action was the latest attempt to counter what Washington sees as Beijing's efforts to limit freedom of navigation in the strategic waters, U.S. officials said. The Chinese Defense Ministry called the move "illegal" and "provocative," saying that two Chinese warships had warned the U.S. destroyer to leave.

    • Dallas Cowboys Rookies Spend Nearly $55,000 On Dinner At Nick & Sam’s

      At some point in the season, the Dallas Cowboys’ newest players are hazed in a particularly expensive way — buying dinner for their undoubtedly hungry teammates. At this year’s “rookie dinner,” newcomers like quarterback Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott racked up a beyond massive bill at a Dallas steakhouse. A photo of a receipt detailing $50,341.65 in pricey steaks, shrimp cocktail, and caviar from Nick & Sam’s was reportedly posted to defensive tackle Tyrone Crawford’s Snapchat account on October 19, and was later posted to Twitter by a Cowboys fan site.
