Daily 2 Cents: Mumbai Duo Arrested For Creating UFO Scare -- Strange Sounds Shook the House -- NASA Confident Alien Life on Europa

Duo arrested for creating 'UFO' scare in Mumbai

Stunned event organiser whose unwitting act of releasing gas balloons in the air sent the defence and intelligence agencies into a tizzy says he will never ever do it again.

When event organiser Kunal Shah and his colleague Nilesh Shrimankar decided to release gas balloons at the end of a cricket match they organised at Kalina on Saturday, little did they realise it would trigger a nationwide hunt by defence and intelligence agencies, culminating in their arrest on Tuesday morning.

After a Jet Airways pilot spotted five objects that looked like unmanned parachutes on Saturday evening, he aborted take off, and alerted air traffic authorities. Within hours, defence and intelligence personnel were all scrambling to figure out what the objects were.

Shah said he came to know about the serious security breach from media reports and from the Mumbai police who called him for questioning about the event. Shah, 33, and Shrimankar were charged with endangering the life and personal safety of others (IPC Section 336), criminal acts by more than one person with common intent (Sec 34), and disobedience to order promulgated by a public servant (Sec 188). The duo released on bail bonds of Rs 10,000 each on Tuesday evening. Shah said they earned Rs 11,000 from the event and ended up paying Rs 20,000 as bail. "I'll never release such balloons again," he added. - Duo arrested for creating 'UFO' scare in Mumbai


Strange Sounds Shook the House

Erie, PA - 5/26/2015: Was sleeping around 2:00am when suddenly I was awoken to the most terrifying sound coming from right outside my window. The strange noise was incredibly loud and was absolutely frightening in the worst way. The whole house shook like it was in an earthquake while the object sounded maybe electrical and mechanical? I don't know, it was such a strange sound. Like nothing I've ever heard before in my life. It made maybe a loud "WOMMMM WOMMMM WOMMMM" sound, kind of like a horn, but more of a buzz? I'm sorry, it was so strange and difficult to describe. But it continued for a minute or so, after the "wommm wommm" sound, and sounded more like a freight train. Then all of a sudden, the sound disappeared completely. I'm still terrified sitting here thinking about it. My wife and kids all slept through it, but I was so scared I couldn't close my eyes.. - MUFON CMS


NASA is confident about finding life on Europa in its next mission

The space agency has outlined its upcoming mission to determine if Jupiter's icy moon is habitable.

Thought to be home to an ocean of liquid water situated deep down beneath a thick icy crust, Europa remains one of the most promising places to look for life within our own solar system.

In a new mission scheduled to launch in the 2020s, NASA will be using a total of nine different instruments to ascertain whether the Jovian moon is likely to be capable of supporting life.

Scientists have long suspected that heat rising from the bottom of Europa's subterranean ocean could provide a habitable environment for primitive life forms in much the same way as hydrothermal vents provide a haven for life forms in the deepest recesses of Earth's oceans.

"After five billion years with conditions like that, it could be a very habitable place," said NASA's Jim Green. "We believe the environment is just perfect for the potential development of life."

"If we do find life or indications of life that will be an enormous step forward in our understanding of our place in the universe. If there's life in the solar system and in Europa in particular, it must be everywhere in our galaxy and perhaps even in the universe."

Have we all been drinking dinosaur urine?

Almost all the water on the planet was, at one point, consumed and then peed out by a dinosaur.

It's an idea that seems too ridiculous to be true, but when you think about it the water we drink is the same water that has been around since the Earth's earliest days.

Every creature on the planet throughout history has consumed and then urinated that same water which has been recycled over and over for countless eons.

The fact that the dinosaurs walked the Earth for over 186 million years would have given them plenty of time to have collectively sampled the vast majority of the water on the planet.

While this doesn't mean that what you drink is literally dinosaur urine, it does suggest that at least some of the molecules in your glass may have once been peed out by a prehistoric reptile.

The Alligator People - 1959

A newlywed couple sit in a train. The husband receives a frantic telegram. He gets off at a station to make a phone call, the train pulls away without him on it, and that's the last his wife sees of him. Years later after a long search she finally tracks him down on his family's southern estate where she discovers that a failed medical treatment has turned him into an alligator mutant.

NOTE: My namesake was actor Lon Chaney, Jr. who famously portrayed 'the Wolfman.' My father's name is Lorn, who enjoyed Chaney's film characters and the 1950-60's monsters genre...so I was named after him. BTW...Chaney's father, Lon Chaney Sr., was known as the 'Man of a Thousand Faces' and portrayed the 'Phantom of the Opera' lead and other monstrous characters during the silent film era. Now I'm researching and writing about cryptids and other strange beings. Weird. Lon
