Two Reports of a 'Panther' Roaming the Scottish Highlands

STVPolice in the north of Scotland are investigating two sightings of a large panther-type cat which was spotted in Dornoch in the Highlands.

The animal was seen by a member of the public walking between Dornoch Caravan Park and the greenkeeper's shed at Dornoch Golf Club on Saturday around 8am.

The sighting is the second in the Easter Ross and Sutherland areas in the past week. Another member of the public spotted what they described as a "very large, muscular black cat with a square head" in the Fendon area of Tain. The animal was described as being around four feet in length, with a two to three-foot-long tail.

In July police warned walkers to take care following the alleged sighting of a big cat at woods near Kincraig, Kingussie. The sighting of a large cat "the size of a German shepherd dog" was reported in woods at Inshriach.

Northern Constabulary are advising noone to approach the animal but to report any sightings to their nearest police station.

Plant Spontaneously Combusts, Catches House on Fire

kait8 - After more than a month, the cause of a house fire in Greene County is now known. Fire investigators say a July 25th fire was caused by spontaneous combustion.

"Her words were that the whole front of the house was on fire," said homeowner Brian Duncan.

When investigators started searching for an origin they say it started in the same spot where the plant was sitting.

"Spontaneous combustion is something where you have to have a lot of variables come together and it has to be just right," said Jonesboro Fire Department Fire Marshall Jason Wills.

"It looked to me like someone had come up on my front porch and started a fire," said Duncan.

Wills said it's rare, but spontaneous combustion does happen.

"It happens in organic material in the process of decomposition," said Wills.

That process lets off heat and with the help of the sun can get hot enough to catch fire.

The heat of the fire caused some of the glass in the front door to break allowing the smoke to penetrate the house.

"We basically had to have the whole house painted on the inside, floors repaired, carpet repaired," said Duncan.

$20,000 in damage later, Duncan is warning his friends and family members about spontaneous combustion.

"It's something that does happen, but this is the first one in our area that I'm aware of," said Wills.

Wills also said he doesn't want this to alarm people. For something like this to happen a lot of variables have to line up just right.

NOTE: I have seen something similar to this. I was an engineer in a paper recycling plant. Bales of scrap paper, over time, will 'heat up' when the cellulose starts to decompose. I have witnessed a few large fires result from this phenomena...Lon


Woman Dies While Stuck In Lover's Chimney

skynews - A woman's decomposing body has been found wedged inside the chimney of her lover's home after she tried to sneak into his house.

Dr Jacquelyn Kotarac, 49, scaled a ladder to the roof, removed the chimney cap and slid down the flue of the property in Bakersfield, California.

The woman, who had an "on-again, off again" relationship with the man, had gone to the house on Wednesday last week, police said.

But the man refused to let her in and escaped unnoticed from the house "to avoid a confrontation", police added.

Dr Kotarac is believed to have been stuck in the chimney for three days.

Her body was discovered by a house-sitter who noticed "an odour and fluids" coming from the fireplace, police said.

The house-sitter and her son found the woman's body wedged about two feet above the top of the interior fireplace opening.

Firefighters spent five hours dismantling the chimney and flue from the outside of the property to extract the body.

The man's identity has been revealed in media reports as William Moodie, 58, the owner of a petroleum engineering company.

"She made an unbelievable error in judgement and nobody understands why, and unfortunately she's passed away," Mr Moodie told the Associated Press.

"She had her issues, she had her demons, but I never lost my respect for her."

He would not comment on the circumstances that led to her death but described her as a "superb internist who often provided service and medication free of charge to her patients".

Dr Kotarac ran a medical practice seeing as many as 200 patients a week, reports said.

Her office staff reported her missing when she failed to turn up to work.

Bakersfield coroner's office said Dr Kotarac died of asphyxiation and concluded the death was an accident.


The Crazy Demands of the Discovery Channel Hostage Taker

retrohelix - As you all know James Lee, a 43 y/o extreme environmentalist, took the Discovery Channel building in Silver Spring (MD) hostage for several hours, until police gunned him down when, as they said, ” he appeared to have taken out his handgun and pointed at one of the hostages.”

Thomas Leonard, the suspect’s brother-in-law, told Fox News that Lee has been “abusive and hurtful” to the people who love him and have tried to get him help over the years.

Leonard says that after some deaths in the family, Lee’s outlook on life became darker. Leonard says, “he’s been off and doing his own thing.”

The guy had serious issues and his demands made no sense to anyone else but him, so here’s the list and you’ll have to agree with me when I say the guy was a nutcase the guy needed psychiatric help.


The Discovery Channel MUST broadcast to the world their commitment to save the planet and to do the following IMMEDIATELY:

1. The Discovery Channel and it’s affiliate channels MUST have daily television programs at prime time slots based on Daniel Quinn’s “My Ishmael” pages 207-212 where solutions to save the planet would be done in the same way as the Industrial Revolution was done, by people building on each other’s inventive ideas. Focus must be given on how people can live WITHOUT giving birth to more filthy human children since those new additions continue pollution and are pollution. A game show format contest would be in order. Perhaps also forums of leading scientists who understand and agree with the Malthus-Darwin science and the problem of human overpopulation. Do both. Do all until something WORKS and the natural world starts improving and human civilization building STOPS and is reversed! MAKE IT INTERESTING SO PEOPLE WATCH AND APPLY SOLUTIONS!!!!

2. All programs on Discovery Health-TLC must stop encouraging the birth of any more parasitic human infants and the false heroics behind those actions. In those programs’ places, programs encouraging human sterilization and infertility must be pushed. All former pro-birth programs must now push in the direction of stopping human birth, not encouraging it.

3. All programs promoting War and the technology behind those must cease. There is no sense in advertising weapons of mass-destruction anymore. Instead, talk about ways to disassemble civilization and concentrate the message in finding SOLUTIONS to solving global military mechanized conflict. Again, solutions solutions instead of just repeating the same old wars with newer weapons. Also, keep out the fraudulent peace movements. They are liars and fakes and had no real intention of ending the wars. ALL OF THEM ARE FAKE! On one hand, they claim they want the wars to end, on the other, they are demanding the human population increase. World War II had 2 Billion humans and after that war, the people decided that tripling the population would assure peace. WTF??? STUPIDITY! MORE HUMANS EQUALS MORE WAR!

4. Civilization must be exposed for the filth it is. That, and all its disgusting religious-cultural roots and greed. Broadcast this message until the pollution in the planet is reversed and the human population goes down! This is your obligation. If you think it isn’t, then get hell off the planet! Breathe Oil! It is the moral obligation of everyone living otherwise what good are they??

5. Immigration: Programs must be developed to find solutions to stopping ALL immigration pollution and the anchor baby filth that follows that. Find solutions to stopping it. Call for people in the world to develop solutions to stop it completely and permanently. Find solutions FOR these countries so they stop sending their breeding populations to the US and the world to seek jobs and therefore breed more unwanted pollution babies. FIND SOLUTIONS FOR THEM TO STOP THEIR HUMAN GROWTH AND THE EXPORTATION OF THAT DISGUSTING FILTH! (The first world is feeding the population growth of the Third World and those human families are going to where the food is! They must stop procreating new humans looking for nonexistant jobs!)

6. Find solutions for Global Warming, Automotive pollution, International Trade, factory pollution, and the whole blasted human economy. Find ways so that people don’t build more housing pollution which destroys the environment to make way for more human filth! Find solutions so that people stop breeding as well as stopping using Oil in order to REVERSE Global warming and the destruction of the planet!

7. Develop shows that mention the Malthusian sciences about how food production leads to the overpopulation of the Human race. Talk about Evolution. Talk about Malthus and Darwin until it sinks into the stupid people’s brains until they get it!!

8. Saving the Planet means saving what’s left of the non-human Wildlife by decreasing the Human population. That means stopping the human race from breeding any more disgusting human babies! You’re the media, you can reach enough people. It’s your resposibility because you reach so many minds!!!

9. Develop shows that will correct and dismantle the dangerous US world economy. Find solutions for their disasterous Ponzi-Casino economy before they take the world to another nuclear war.

10. Stop all shows glorifying human birthing on all your channels and on TLC. Stop Future Weapons shows or replace the dialogue condemning the people behind these developments so that the shows become exposes rather than advertisements of Arms sales and development!

11. You’re also going to find solutions for unemployment and housing. All these unemployed people makes me think the US is headed toward more war.

Humans are the most destructive, filthy, pollutive creatures around and are wrecking what’s left of the planet with their false morals and breeding culture.

For every human born, ACRES of wildlife forests must be turned into farmland in order to feed that new addition over the course of 60 to 100 YEARS of that new human’s lifespan! THIS IS AT THE EXPENSE OF THE FOREST CREATURES!!!! All human procreation and farming must cease!

It is the responsiblity of everyone to preserve the planet they live on by not breeding any more children who will continue their filthy practices. Children represent FUTURE catastrophic pollution whereas their parents are current pollution. NO MORE BABIES! Population growth is a real crisis. Even one child born in the US will use 30 to a thousand times more resources than a Third World child. It’s like a couple are having 30 babies even though it’s just one! If the US goes in this direction maybe other countries will too!

Also, war must be halted. Not because it’s morally wrong, but because of the catastrophic environmental damage modern weapons cause to other creatures. FIND SOLUTIONS JUST LIKE THE BOOK SAYS! Humans are supposed to be inventive. INVENT, DAMN YOU!!

The world needs TV shows that DEVELOP solutions to the problems that humans are causing, not stupify the people into destroying the world. Not encouraging them to breed more environmentally harmful humans.

Saving the environment and the remaning species diversity of the planet is now your mindset. Nothing is more important than saving them. The Lions, Tigers, Giraffes, Elephants, Froggies, Turtles, Apes, Raccoons, Beetles, Ants, Sharks, Bears, and, of course, the Squirrels.

The humans? The planet does not need humans.

You MUST KNOW the human population is behind all the pollution and problems in the world, and YET you encourage the exact opposite instead of discouraging human growth and procreation. Surely you MUST ALREADY KNOW this!

I want Discovery Communications to broadcast on their channels to the world their new program lineup and I want proof they are doing so. I want the new shows started by asking the public for inventive solution ideas to save the planet and the remaining wildlife on it.

These are the demands and sayings of Lee.
