Birds making nests inside car bonnets has caused a spate of engine fires


Car owners in Orkney have been warned to check their engines after a spate of fires caused by birds nesting under the bonnet.


Fire crews have been called out to at least three major car blazes since birds started breeding earlier this month.

In the latest incident, a vehicle in St Margaret's Hope was completely destroyed by a fire caused by a nest built by a starling overnight.

Kim Patching, the owner, said that it would not start and then smoke and flames emerged from under the bonnet.

In another incident, a Vauxhall Corsa was written off after a fire in the engine compartment spread, engulfing it in flames.

Electric car dealer Johnathan Porterfield found a nest - complete with a clutch of four starling eggs - next to his car's engine.

He said: "I've decided to leave the car until the birds hatch out and leave."

Metal object crashes through Florida home - FAA says it was not from an airplane

Suburban West Palm Beach - The Federal Aviation Administration has investigated a suburban West Palm Beach home after a metal object reportedly came crashing through the roof of a home into a bathroom and determined the object is not from an airplane.

The piece of metal that smashed through the home of Bill Hardy is about the size of a brick and weighs nearly 10 pounds.

Hardy said when it made impact, it sounded like an explosion.

"I first you know that a pipe or something had burst, but then I saw that," said Hardy.

Sitting on a bed of cracked tiles was the chunk of metal with what appeared to be bolt holes.

Hardy thinks it dropped in from the sky, however the FAA has ruled that is not the case.

Comment: More stories of falling metallic objects over the years.

'Planes don't just disappear': Former Malaysian Prime Minister accuses CIA of covering up what really happened to flight MH370

Someone's hiding something: Ex Malaysian PM Dr Mahathir said the missing plane may have had its MAS airline markings removed and the Australian co-ordinated search out of Perth for debris was 'a waste of time and money'.
Missing Flight MH370 did not crash and its current whereabouts may be known to the Central Intelligence Agency and the Boeing aircraft company, Malaysia's influential former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad has claimed.

Dr Mahathir said the plane could have been switched onto autopilot remotely by the CIA if it had been hijacked.


Comment: True, though not talked about much in the mainstream media. Such technology has been available for decades, and SOTT highly suspects it was employed during the 9/11 false flag.


'Remotely by radio or satellite links by government agencies like the Central Intelligence Agency, if terrorists attempt to gain control of the flight deck,' he wrote in an entry entitled 'What goes up must come down' on his blog, chedet.

'Airplanes don't just disappear,' he said. 'Certainly not these days with all the powerful communication systems, radio and satellite tracking and filmless cameras which operate almost indefinitely and possess huge storage capacities.'

'The plane is somewhere, maybe without MAS [Malaysia Airlines] markings,' he said, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

'It is a waste of time and money to look for debris or oil slick or to listen for pings from the black box.

"For some reason, the media will not print anything that involves Boeing or the CIA,' he said.

Comment: Dr. Mahathir is right about one thing: MH370 most likely did NOT crash. And its total disappearance IS a mystery that suggests there's something more to the story than we're being told. However, another possibility remains: Yes, Boeing would know how such things could be done to their own technology, but we think they're just as 'in the dark' as everyone else. There's one thing Dr. Mahathir is wrong about: planes DO just disappear. For example, Flight 19 and many others. But the circumstances surrounding such disappearances are usually just too strange to account for with our materialistic worldview. Journalist and author John Keel, for one, wasn't afraid to think deeply about the implications.

Bigfoot in Malaysia?

A mystery is afoot: The hundreds of strange, large footprints all over a tarred road near the Endau Rompin forest reserve in Johor Baru.
Johor Baru - It's a strange sight indeed - three sets of muddy footprints, one set looking like it belonged to a tiger, another like it was an elephant's and the last resembling a human's but much bigger in size.

The trail of footprints that stretched close to 1km near the Endau Rompin forest reserve have retirees Sia Chwee Khim, 64, and her husband Lim Teong Kheng, 66, puzzled and very excited.

They believe the last set may be that of the mythical "Bigfoot".

The couple, their daughter Joanna, 30, and a group of friends from Singapore decided to follow the tracks for more than 1km on May 10.

"It was just astounding - the creature or creatures had walked in the damp red soil and onto the tar road, leaving clear footprints for us to see," said Sia, adding that the group took countless pictures and even measured the large footprints, which were about 48cm long and 11cm wide.

"We tried to mimic the steps but could not stretch our legs to match the distance of the stride.

The Hiram B Scutt Mansion is on sale for just $159,900
If you've always dreamed of owning a mansion but don't have the funds required to make it a reality, then this property on the market in Illinois could be just the ticket.

The Hiram B Scutt Mansion, former home of the Civil War veteran and barbed wire tycoon who gave it its name, is up for sale for just $159,900 (£95,000).

Built in 1882, the three-storey, red-brick building in Joliet covers 4,960 square-feet and is on the United States' National Register of Historic Places.

But as the saying goes, if it sounds too good to be true, that's probably because it is - the sprawling residence is also said to be haunted, Patch.com reported.

The house was bought by real estate broker Brian Kearney in 2004. Two years later football players from the University of St Francis rented out the building and threw a party.

UFO or part of a Russian Rocket?
Residents in Mengchang village in the province of Heilongjiang were stirred Friday when three unidentified flying objects fell from the sky and landed into a vegetable garden.

The Yi'an county government confirmed that unidentified objects - metallic balls half-covered by a layer of jagged edge - dropped from the sky.

"Villagers in Mengchang heard a loud noise and then saw big ball of fire falling from the sky and into a vegetable garden," the county government said.

"I saw a huge ball of fire, I thought it was a meteorite. I hid inside my house and waited until the object has landed," said one villager who lives near the vegetable farm.

However, a report on Saturday said the unidenfied objects could be part of a Russian rocket, called Proton-M, that crashed outside of Kazakhstan's territory on Friday.
Question

Why mysterious UFO-like lights glow in Hessdalen, Norway

Hessdalen lights

Hessdalen light photographed in 1998.
As a name, Hessdalen may be more familiar to UFO watchers than scientists. The valley in Norway is prone to "strange, hovering, flashing balls of lights" best attributed, as some believe, to alien origins. Now scientists say they're on the verge of an explanation: The valley is a giant natural battery.

But first, let's set the scene, as Caroline Williams does wonderfully in her piece about the Hessdalen phenomenon for New Scientist. On a cold, dark Norwegian night about a dozen times a year, you might see this:

Sometimes the lights are as big as cars and can float around for up to 2 hours. Other times they zip down the valley before suddenly fading away. Then there are the blue and white flashes that come and go in the blink of an eye, and daytime sightings that look like metallic objects in the sky.

UFOs captured on film near Queenstown, New Zealand

Picturesque location, paranormal happenings: Colour In Your Life's production manager said the team didn't notice the flying objects until editing the footage they came across.
An Australian film crew believes it captured two UFOs on film near Queenstown. The Colour in your Life film crew told MailOnline they spotted the UFO while editing their footage this week.

The film crew captured the footage - of what appears to be two objects racing across the South Island sky - while filming a scene of a motorbike riding across a bridge. Colour in your Life production manager Tanita Cree told MailOnline that the team were blown away when they took a closer look at the footage.

"We were all like, what was that?" she said.

After slowing down the film, the two shapes can be seen above the trees moving across the sky and disappearing.

"It was the speed they were moving at, they just jumped out of the trees," Ms Cree said.

The production team posted the video to YouTube and shared it on their Facebook page. They got an immediate response, including from someone who said they might be ducks.

"From the trees to where I was on the bike is about a half a kilometre, if you look at the speed in real time that means that if it were birds they would have accelerated to about 4,000 kilometres an hour in one second," a member of the production team posted to Facebook.

The Colour in your Life crew was filming an episode of their art television show with interviews with artists around the South Island.

Mystery continues in North Carolina: Roof hole not from plane part

Edneyville - A piece of metal that crashed through a man's roof was not an aircraft part, a Federal Aviation Administration spokeswoman said Wednesday.

Neither the FAA nor the Henderson County Sheriff's Office has been able to tell Robert Poer exactly what the object is or how it ended up falling through his roof and into the second floor of his home.

The FAA is done with its portion of investigation, spokeswoman Kathleen Bergen said.

"It doesn't look like I'm going to get very far for anybody to pay for it," Poer said. "It looks like I'm going to have to eat it, unfortunately."

Poer discovered the hole in his roof Monday. The Sheriff's Office began its investigation that day and will continue its attempt to figure out what happened.

"We may never know what it came from, but we're certainly still looking into it," Chief Deputy Frank Stout said.

Aliens are targeting the Welsh and other Celtic tribes, claims 'abduction victim'


Hilary Porter says she has been abducted so many times she has lost count
Ufologist Hilary Porter claims that aliens are targeting the Celtic tribes

Telepathic aliens are targeting Wales in a bid to harvest our superior genetic material - that's according to "abduction victim" Hilary Porter.

While Hilary's stories may sound outlandish or unbelievable, she dismisses those who scoff for being closed minded.

The 67-year-old sought-after speaker and ufologist is claiming a stretch of road between Swansea and Cardiff is a "hotspot" of alien activity.

Hilary says she was so traumatised by her abduction that she was too scared to return to Wales for four decades.
