The Source of Dunes in Chasma Boreale

HiPOD 14 Jan 2019: The Source of Dunes in Chasma Boreale

This image shows dunes during the summer, when they were free from the seasonal layer of carbon dioxide ice that covers the region for much of the year. These dunes, which are near the head of the largest trough in the North Polar cap (called Chasma Boreale), were formed by strong winds blowing down the canyon toward its mouth.

A wickedly sexy-looking W i d e body Shelby!

Which, sadly, would not, in it’s present state, have a hope in Hell of getting in or out of my driveway, let alone the supermarket’s.

Be fab on the track if your flatbeds ramps were long enough. =D

Anywho…

Shadow people are believed to be ghosts that take the form of a dark humanoid mass and haunt areas where there is a lot of clutter or activity. Nobody knows what they are, but a lot of experts in sleep deprivation claim that seeing these figures is one of the most common side effects. However, the pictures above appear to give us some tangible proof that these entities may actually exist.

Ooh, modern Fortean critters! I’ve not seen one and don’t particularly want to. Haven’t heard of them ever doing anything bad, unless lurking and presumably observing is bad, but it would be pretty creepy to catch a glimpse I’d think.

Not a fan at all of the ghost origin theory, if anything in my view, they would be a separate entity unto themselves.

These are allegedly photos of them, but, who, like anything else, knows, eh?

Hoping they’re figured out one of these days, preferably in my lifetime.

It’s The Keef!

He was a mere thirteen days late with this wish, but, it matters not, because it was one astoundingly excellent New Year’s party…

The man is, after all, the undisputed Lord of Party and for this we love him.

Look at that look in his eye and feel that Love in his heart.

Nik Tesla

When Albert Einstein was asked what it was like to be the smartest man in the world, he replied, “I don’t know. Why don’t you ask Nikola Tesla?”

I don’t think any more needs to be said. Do you?

Because this guy was a hero to the guy who is my hero, making him a superhero.

Kinda neat how that works, isn’t it?

The Old Ones knew… so much.

And then the “ancient” Egyptians came upon the magnificence of these structures and proceeded to build a culture around and in awe of them.

Is it? Well… maybe… maybe not. Could be, though. They’re as elusive as our version and a lot nastier for reasons unknown.

So nasty in fact that there are areas where folks try to avoid at all costs,even if they’re piloting a tractor-trailer truck.

So, um, yeah. I’d still dig going on searches. Especially if carrying extra underwear. Sadly the forces of evil won’t let the Australian people protect themselves.

Sigh.

Well, good golly gosh!

While searching for “fortean” on tumblr for new blogs, I came across this post from Andy McGrath’s thebeastsofbritain, (which I already follow as it’s an excellent blog), regarding a visit by himself and Champ researcher Katy Elizabeth, both Fortean Facebook friends, with a dear old friend of mine!

Wa Hey!

Whilst travelling from Maine to Vermont with my friend Katy Elizabeth, we stopped at the home of American Fortean, James Boyd, to admire his awesome collection. He was a true gentleman full of awesome stories and experiences and a very gracious host.

#James Boyd#fortean#cryptozoology#Nessie witness#international cryptozoology conference#Beasts of Britain#Katy Elizabeth#champ search#Andy McGrath#New England#BOB in the USA

Wow, this was an awesome surprise. Due to my situation, I haven’t seen Jim in ages, well over a decade now, sadly. He is as described above and more… a good friend to have. A Fortean since forever and a dedicated supporter of the International Fortean Organization for decades.

Hopefully I will get to hang out with him again one day…

Anyway…

Good gracious! This is Audio Research’s latest flagship power amplifier, the Reference 750SE. It is a monoblock. For audio novices, that means that it is a monophonic unit so you will need one for each channel, i.e., two for stereo. The specs are pretty impressive, -110dB is a great signal to noise spec for a power amp. They don’t list distortion, though. 🙂

It costs $70,000.00.

This is for suborbital VTOL tests. Orbital version is taller, has thicker skins (won’t wrinkle) & a smoothly curving nose section.

Now that’s a stylin’ Starship test flight rocket if I ever saw one!

WheeHa!

The future is bright.

AT-LPW40WN

The newly announced audio-technica AT-LPW40WN. I am a big fan of direct drive for technical and audio reasons, but, man, is this pretty or what?

Big fan of audio-technica, too, as they are phono fanatics for over 50 years. I have their AT-LP1240-USB, which is absolutely killer and it plays 78s. Got some sizable collection of old 78s. Need a 78 stylus, though.

is it tassie

“This image was taken by a man named Peter Groves in January of 2019. He claims to have seen the Thylacine when he was walking a trail in Clifton Springs, Australia. Groves said that the animal did not seem to be wary of him at all and that they stared at each other for about 5 minutes. Some believe it looks like a mangy canine or a fox, but others see a striking resemblance to the Thylacine that was in the film The Hunter and dub it as a hoax.”

God, there are so many hoaxes. I hope this is not one of them, but, not having seen The Hunter, it is sad that it quite likely likely is exactly that.

People… sigh.
