Daily 2 Cents: Bigfoot's Ghost? -- Book a Trip to 'Titanic' -- Mount Etna Erupts...Injuring 10 People

Bigfoot's Ghost?

Alex Marsh wrote into Beyond The Darkness to tell of something he saw as a boy:

“My story is short and takes place many years ago when I was a kid in the early '80s. My parents and the neighbors were hanging out having a few Miller Lites in the neighbor's yard and we kids were playing. It was shortly after dark when we decided to play tag. For those of us that have actually gone outside to play in the suburbs know that this is a perfect time to play this game. My neighborhood was like most, I guess. But my neighborhood was near a creek that ran for miles and passed by several thick stands of trees.

So we'd been playing awhile when I ran away from whomever it was that was it. It was at that moment when I saw something, a huge almost glowing white shape walking between two trees in the yard in front of me. It looked like a mixture of the Patterson / Gimlin Bigfoot and one of those costumed villains from Scooby Do. It quickly passed behind a tree and was gone. It didn't reappear on the other side. I was so shocked and terrified that I couldn't take my eyes from where it had been. Then I ran straight into another tree knocking myself silly.

After the excitement of me hurting myself was over, I told my brother about it and he, like everyone else I’ve told since, thought the same thing, that I had imagined it due to nearly knocking myself out. But I know what I saw and that I saw it before I hit the tree and to this day I can still see it in my mind as clearly as I did that late summer evening. I've gone on to call whatever I saw, Bigfoot's Ghost.”

Book a Trip to 'Titanic'

People will soon be able to take part in an eight-day trip to visit the Titanic that includes close-up views of the damaged ship — but it's not going to be cheap.

London-based tour operator Blue Marble Private announced their plans to take groups of nine on an underwater excursion to view the legendary boat in the spring of 2018.

The destroyed Titanic has been at the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean since it struck an iceberg on its maiden voyage in 1912, sinking about 12,500 feet down.

Blue Marble Private's packages will include time on an expedition yacht, which will give tourists a good view of the wreckage site. But the underwater adventure is only going to be affordable to a select few though. A close-up of the wreck will cost $105,129 per person.


Mount Etna Erupts...Injuring 10 People

Mount Etna, Europe's largest active volcano, erupted for the second time in a month this week, spewing lava hundreds of feet into the air above Sicily. A later blast, caused by magma hitting snow, injured at least 10 people, news outlets reported.

Video filmed Wednesday shows bursts of lava and volcanic ash as the mountain exploded almost constantly throughout the day, according to Italy's Geology and Vulcanology Institute, which published the footage. The lava bursts reached nearly 650 feet high, the institute said in a report.

The volcano, one of the world's most active, last erupted two weeks ago on the Italian island.

The activity had drawn spectators to the mountain on Thursday. Magma hit the snow, causing an explosion of debris that pelted bystanders as they raced for safety, injuring at least 10, reported the Associated Press. Six people were hospitalized, according to Italian news agency ANSA, mostly with head injuries in non-critical condition.
