I have never seen one of these before! Strange!

Rather strange and quite complex!
America’s first female astronaut candidate, pilot Jerrie Cobb, who pushed for equality in space but never reached its heights, has died at her home in Florida.
Cobb died March 18 following a brief illness, said Miles O’Brien, a family spokesman. She was 88.
In 1961, Cobb became the first woman to pass NASA’s astronaut screening process. Altogether, 13 women passed the arduous physical testing regimen and became known as the Mercury 13. But NASA already had its Mercury 7 astronauts, all jet test pilots and all military men, and none of the Mercury 13 ever reached space, which left Cobb bitter.
“We seek, only, a place in our nation’s space future without discrimination,” she later told a special House subcommittee on the selection of astronauts.
Instead of making her an astronaut, NASA tapped her as a consultant to promote the space program. But she was dismissed after commenting: “I’m the most unconsulted consultant in any government agency.”
“My country, my culture, was not ready to allow a woman to fly in space.”
Truly sad. We’ve since grown out of that phase, but I am saddened that such brave and excellent people as Jerrie Cobb never got to shine.
Just think how proud we would have been.

Some folks get it. Most have been indoctrinated since birth.
I was indoctrinated, too, for many years, but finally my intellect saw what had happened and it all fell away.

This was the most intense investigation we’ve done to date. Voices out of thin air, thuds, footsteps & paranormal activity. Incredible footage!
Haunted Cornwall | Ghosts Of Pengersick Castle | Return Paranormal Investigation 2019
Premiered Mar 3, 2019
Long described as one of the most haunted places in the UK, Cornwall offers a wealth of paranormal happenings. From tales of ghostly ‘wreckers’ on the rugged Cornish coasts, to the sad phantom of a girl, murdered long ago on the lonely, windswept moor. There’s barely a village that doesn’t boast it’s own ghost and nearly every pub, it’s resident phantom. With such a wealth of mysterious tales and events, Paranormal Voice will be exploring claims of ghosts and hauntings in the all new Web Series, Haunted Cornwall.

We were contacted via email a few weeks ago by a photographer in Germany who was recently in Greece on holiday. While that does sound pretty mundane, the image file she attached to her email was anything but, at least to my “not professionally trained in digital imaging” eyes, it was the best “UFO” image I’ve had emailed to me in years.
“SHOOTER” related that she was on a vacation trip with her husband, and they were driving in a remote area of Greece. While slowing down to photograph some goats, in one photo only out of multiples, she captured a single image of an unknown object in the sky. “SHOOTER” did not see the object at the time of photographing the scene, and has related to me she noticed nothing whatsoever unusual during this time. The weather was quite windy, spotted with clouds, yet relatively clear, with a temperature of approximately 86 degrees. The object appears in no other photo, including the one preceding it which was taken 5 seconds earlier than the UO shot. The next frame shot after the UO photo was some minutes later and obviously at another vantage point from the “goat series.”

I was just looking at this again, for some reason.
It is indeed absolutely fabulous and is simply fascinating af. If you are into UFOs, you need to read this thread. You won’t be sorry.

I wouldn’t know, of course, but, seriously, I would not be at all surprised.
La estancia San Ramón, refugio de Hitler en la Patagonia, a prinicipios del siglo XX era del príncipe alemán Georg Schaumburg-Lippe. Tras su muerte en 1911, fue heredada por su hijo Adolf. El nuevo príncipe detentó el poder hasta 1918 y al término de la Primera Guerra Mundial se vió obligado a abdicar. Ante la posibilidad de que el gobierno alemán expropiara sus bienes, la estancia fue transferida por su propietario a la sociedad Treuhand creada al efecto de preservar su capital. El príncipe Adolf Schaumburg Lippe murió en México en 1936. Su hermano menor el príncipe Friedrich durante el Tercer Reich fue colaborador permanente del jerarca nazi Joseph Göbbels. El hijo de príncipe Georg, Stephan Alexander, hermano de Adolf, fue diplomático de Hitler, cumpliendo funciones en Sofía, Roma, Río de Janeiro y Buenos Aires
The San Ramón Stay, refuge of Hitler in Patagonia, at the beginning of the 20th century was the German Prince Georg Schaumburg-Lippe. After his death in 1911, he was inherited by his son Adolf. The new prince held power until 1918 and at the end of World War I was forced to abdicate. In view of the possibility that the German government would express its assets, the stay was transferred by its owner to the Treuhand society created to preserve its capital. Prince Adolf Schaumburg Lippe died in Mexico in 1936. His younger brother Prince Friedrich During The Third Reich was a permanent collaborator of Nazi Hierarch Joseph Göbbels. The Son of Prince Georg, Stephan Alexander, brother of Adolf, was a diplomat of Hitler, serving functions in Sofia, Rome, Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires
