Just the Facts?: Megan Fox Talks Cryptids -- Alien Abduction Horror -- Australian Finds Massive Gold Nugget

Megan Fox: Bigfoot, Leprechauns and the Loch Ness Monster

Bigfoot, Leprechauns and the Loch Ness Monster are all real, according to Megan Fox.

The Hollywood bombshell opened up about the supernatural in an interview with Esquire magazine, calling herself a “believer.”

"I believe in all of these Irish myths, like leprechauns,” the “Transformers” actress told the magazine. “Not the pot of gold, not the Lucky Charms leprechauns. But maybe was there something in the traditional sense? I believe that this stuff came from somewhere other than people's imaginations.”

She added that she believes in aliens and the Loch Ness Monster, saying “there’s something to it.”

"What distracts me from my reality is Bigfoot,” she said, bizarrely adding that fairy tale creatures “are my celebrities.”

The new mother also revealed that she is in the process of altering her body, getting rid of a tattoo she has of Marilyn Monroe.

"I started reading about her and realized that her life was incredibly difficult. It's like when you visualize something for your future. I didn't want to visualize something so negative."

Fox said Monroe reminds her of Lindsay Lohan…but not in a good way.

"She wasn't powerful at the time. She was sort of like Lindsay. She was an actress who wasn't reliable, who almost wasn't insurable.... She had all the potential in the world, and it was squandered," she told Esquire. "I'm not interested in following in those footsteps." - Fox News


Alien Abduction Horror

UFO researcher Stan Hernandez recounted a terrifying story of alien abduction he was recently told by a 48 year old trucker at a convention in Las Vegas:

“My wife, Elizabeth and I have three children, all of them out of the house and with families of their own. I am a truck driver and have been in this profession since I was 22 years old and it is something that I do enjoy, minus the time away from the family. At times, I would take the wife and kids with me, but with the new company regulations, I have not been allowed to do it.

I was in Michigan when I got a call from my wife, panicking. She couldn’t fully explain why she was so upset but she had told me that she believed that she was drugged and possibly raped. I immediately turned around and drove right home, insisting that she phone the police, but she wouldn’t. I got there and she was still a wreck and she began telling me that she thought that it may have been aliens. I didn’t know what to say, but I thought that she was just delirious.

That night, I took her to the ER and there were no signs of rape. There was an odd burn on her right shoulder. I brought her home and thought nothing of it…thinking that she must have just had a bad dream. Well, I called my boss and took the week off to stay with her. That’s when it got strange.

The next morning, I went to cut the grass and I noticed four large burn marks in the grass…all circular in formation. There was also a small burn on one of the pieces of wood in the stockade fence. The grass was black and brittle and broke in my hand. I didn’t know what to make of it. That’s when I looked up at my tree and noticed that there were leaves that were burnt but still attached and they were 20 feet high. It was as if a fireball had come from the sky and singed them and then somehow bounced around in my backyard. Let me say this too. I live about 2 miles away from my closest neighbor…so asking around wasn’t a practical thing to do.

My wife would go through hypnotic regression and would recall being taken to a ship in our backyard, exactly where the burn marks were and brought upon a ship where they performed several acts upon her, each more intrusive than the last. She became a basket case and the week that I returned to work, she would end her life. I gave her a gun for protection because I was never home. I never imagined that she would turn it on herself.

I have gone everywhere I could to tell this story. I want answers. I know that you work with a lot of victims, Stan, and I’m hoping that you can get this story out there. Many dismiss regression, but there is physical evidence. I sent the grass to the (college removed) and they said that there are signs of radiation burns. Then they tell me that there was no radiation burns…like they were told to say that. I don’t know where to go. I’m incredibly depressed since my wife’s passing and don’t want her to die in vain. So, please, help me.” - Ringsider Report

Now...where did I put that Ebola virus?

Laboratories that work with biological select agents and toxins—materials highly regulated for their potential to cause human disease—reported that pathogens were inadvertantly released 639 times between 2004 and 2010. During the same period, laboratories also reported losing 88 samples, although bookkeeping errors accounted for all but one. The remaining lost sample was accidentally destroyed by a commercial courier.

The study, which published in the current issue of Applied Biosafety, says that no occurrences of theft were reported.

Over the 7-year period, laboratories reported 11 lab-acquired infections, at an average annual rate of 1.6 per 10,000 authorised workers. Ten of the infections were traced to bacterial sources, and one was due to fungal exposure. None of the infections were fatal, and none were reported to have spread to other people.

The infections could not be linked to obvious breaches in personal protection, such as torn gloves or cuts from sharp objects. Instead, the authors suggest that workers likely acquired infections from the release of aerosols containing the harmful agents. The team says it is continuing to analyse reports of pathogen releases and lab-acquired infections to identify possible gaps in safety procedures.

“The bottom line is we have a lot of success to report, if you consider that it’s a program that regulates over 300 [laboratories] across the US,” says report co-author Robbin Weyant, director of CDC’s division of select agents and toxins.

Current regulations date back to counterterrorism legislation passed in the wake of the 2001 anthrax attacks in the US. An FBI investigation concluded that microbiologist Bruce Ivins, who worked at a government biodefence laboratory, was responsible for mailing anthrax spores that killed five people and sickened 17 others.

In recent years, government scrutiny and restriction of research on infectious agents has escalated to the point of slowing scientific progress, says Michael Buchmeier, deputy director of the Pacific Southwest Center for Biodefense and Emerging Infectious Diseases at the University of California, Irvine. He says the report suggests that theft and accidental loss of dangerous pathogens from research laboratories are not as widespread a problem as some people have predicted.

Australian amateur prospector finds massive gold nugget

An amateur prospector in the Australian state of Victoria has astonished experts by unearthing a gold nugget weighing 5.5kg (177 ounces). The unidentified man, using a handheld metal detector, found the nugget on Wednesday, lying 60cm underground near the town of Ballarat. Its value has been estimated at more than A$300,000 (£197,000, $315,000 ).

Local gold experts say gold has been prospected in the area for decades, but no such discovery had been made before. "I have been a prospector and dealer for two decades, and cannot remember the last time a nugget over 100 ounces (2.8kg) has been found locally," said Cordell Kent, owner of the Ballarat Mining Exchange Gold Shop. "It's extremely significant as a mineral specimen. We are 162 years into a gold rush and Ballarat is still producing nuggets - it's unheard of."

Gold currently trades in Australia at about A$1,600 per ounce, meaning the discovery would be worth about A$283,200, but its rarity and the fact it weighs more than a kilogram would add a premium, said Mr Kent. He said the prospector had been using a state-of-the-art metal detector, which meant he was able to find the gold relatively deep underground in an area which had been searched many times in the past.

The man had only made small finds before, he said, but was a "person that really deserved it". "A finding like this gives people hope. It's my dream to find something like that, and I've been prospecting for more than two decades." I've got no doubt there will be a lot of people who will be very enthusiastic about the goldfields again, it gives people hope," said Mr Kent. "There's nothing like digging up money, it's good fun." - BBC
