Daily 2 Cents: Stare at the Sun...Lose Weight -- Unknown 6 Ft. Creature / Odd Goat Mutilations -- 'Devil's Breath'


Women in Hong Kong Are Trying to Lose Weight by Staring at the Sun

This one belongs in the 'nutty' category:

Hong Kong’s fitness mania means that vegetable juices and hypobaric chambers have become legitimate profit-making enterprises. But this newest health craze – which, to be fair, is free – is just a tad over the top.

Ten women have been spotted staring directly at the sun for half an hour right before sunset on a beach in Sam Ka Village in Lei Yue Mun.

Why? One of the participants told Oriental Daily that by gazing at the sun, one can absorb the solar energy and substitute that for real, actual calories from real, actual food.

Apparently, according to this crazy person dieter, looking at the sun can replace the need for a normal diet, allowing you to go an entire day without eating.

She added that the “therapy” is of European origin and that certain religious groups believe it can also improve eyesight and sleep quality.

A frequent beachgoer, nicknamed Wing, said he often sees a group of 10 women, aged around 20 to 30 and all dressed in office attire, come to the beach. They arrive at two different times of day – either in the morning or in the early evening – and stare directly at the sun.

Wing said the sun-gazers always take their shoes off, and don sunglasses. They then set a timer on their phone and stand in a line. Some, perhaps absorbing too much solar energy, will fan themselves or use tissue paper to cover up their faces.

Another sun-gazer said that she did it for health reasons, but not for weight loss.

“We practice sun-gazing as a substitute for eating. Some of us who have finished the therapy now eat less, and others don’t have to eat at all!”

It is unclear whether those people who have stopped eating entirely are still alive.

She explained that they start by looking at the sun for up to 10 seconds on the first day, adding 10 seconds every day until they reach 44 minutes by the ninth month (assuming you aren’t blind and/or starved by then).

Apparently these sun-believers do not wear sunglasses after all, opting for pinhole glasses instead, which they believe do not let in enough UV rays to cause permanent damage to their eyesight.

Some participants said the practice is at least partially religious. (Maybe they worship R’hllor, the Lord of Light? For the night is dark and full of terrors…)

Doctors warned that with the sub-tropical location of Hong Kong and the sea water bouncing back sun rays, these possibly insane people’s eyes and skin are at risk. - Women in Hong Kong Are Trying to Lose Weight by Staring at the Sun

A Paris Gang Has Allegedly Been Turning Victims into Zombies with 'Devil's Breath'

Paris police have arrested three people on suspicion of robbing victims while they were in a hypnotic state brought on by the drug scopolamine.

The Telegraph reports that two Chinese women approached people on the street and blew the drug into their faces. Once the victims—who were often elderly—had fallen under the influence of the drug, the two women accompanied them to their homes and asked them to hand over all their valuables. One victim was reportedly robbed of $112,000 worth of stuff.

The pair were finally stopped when a victim identified them in a Metro station, and the police discovered "various Chinese medicinal substances" in the women's hotel room in north east Paris. The third suspect, a 56-year-old man, is thought to have prepared the drug.

Scopolamine—also known as "Devil's Breath"—can be used in very small doses to treat sickness and nausea, but too much brings on drowsiness and hallucinations. It comes from the borrachero tree, native to South America, and is most commonly found in Colombia. Read more at A Paris Gang Has Allegedly Been Turning Victims into Zombies with 'Devil's Breath'

Recent update: Hi folks...Vanessa's final chemotherapy treatment was this week. She was also diagnosed with an overactive thyroid...so she will be going through testing and scans starting next week. It never ends...and, frankly, she's been a bit 'down' with all these other medical problems popping up. I'll just need to find a way to stretch the budget. Thanks to everyone for their thoughts and support. It is truly appreciated. Vanessa & Lon

Arcane Radio Presents: Lyle Blackburn - Cryptid Researcher / Author


This week we welcome our friend and colleague cryptid researcher / author Lyle Blackburn to Arcane Radio

Lyle Blackburn is an author, musician, and cryptid researcher from Texas. His investigative cryptozoology books, The Beast of Boggy Creek: The True Story of the Fouke Monster and Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster reflect his life-long fascination with legends and sighting reports of real-life 'monsters.' During his research, Lyle has often explored the remote reaches of the southern U.S. in search of shadowy creatures said to inhabit the dense backwoods and swamplands of these areas.

Lyle is also a staff writer for the monthly horror magazine, Rue Morgue, and founder of the rock band Ghoultown.

Lyle has been heard on numerous radio programs including Coast To Coast AM, and has appeared on various television shows airing on Discovery, Animal Planet, Destination America, A&E, HGTV, and CBS.

Most recently, Lyle served as a consulting producer and special episode host for the TV show Monsters and Mysteries in America.

MY REVIEW OF LIZARD MAN: THE TRUE STORY OF THE BISHOPVILLE MONSTER


All great legends are based on a real event. Subsequent events simply add to the legend. This seems to be the case for the Lizard Man, a phenomenon that crescendoed into a national story. It still remains the namesake for Bishopville, South Carolina...a proud trademark for the area in and around the Scape Ore Swamp.

Lyle Blackburn and his partner Cindy Lee revisit the sighting locations, speak to the living eyewitnesses and consider all the possible theories in their search for the real Lizard Man.

Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster is an expertly crafted allegory that is informative as well as entertaining. The investigations conducted by the local authorities are chronicled so well that the reader shares in the drama of the encounters. The book provides exceptional documentation for one of the most bizarre cases of an unknown creature. It is the first time that the full and genuine story behind the Bishopville Monster is disclosed.

When Lyle Blackburn wrote his bestselling book The Beast of Boggy Creek: The True Story of the Fouke Monster he propelled the legendary Fouke Monster back into the public eye. The story of the Lizard Man had been on the fringes of the crypto world for many years. But now...that's about to change.

I highly recommend Lizard Man: The True Story of the Bishopville Monster to my readers. I have no doubt that it will be considered one of the most important cryptozoology books in 2013 and beyond. Lon Strickler
