Forbidden Footage Over Grand Canyon

Blaaqbox films
Published on Jun 27, 2016

Watch as the Blaaqbox drone takes flight in unchartered terriotory over the no fly zome of the Grand Canyon. My apologies about the horrible stock music, first time doing a score, I assure you next time the selection will be at bare minimum tolerable.

The soundtrack, as explained above, is such that I recommend muting the volume. There is no narration to miss out on.

Anyway, this vid has some exceptionally cool and obviously heretofore unseen views of this treasured landscape.

I hope someone uses a drone to find the caves of the civilization that once lived here. That would be beyond awesome. Hopefully they could get in and out before being arrested!

Wish it was longer.

“The only body part we found was one skull and one bit of pelvis, everything else was completely gone,” he told Newsweek. “There is so little left that they don’t know exactly how many people were killed, we suspect three because we found three sets of shoes and three sets of gloves.”

He added: “They came heavily armed with hunting rifles and axes which we have recovered and enough food to last them for several days so we suspect they were after all of our rhinos here. But the lions are our watchers and guardians and they picked the wrong pride and became a meal.”

I find this story to be pretty entertaining…whilst it’s horrible to think of what happened to these lawbreaking jerks. I’m kind of happy that they got what was coming to them…they broke into a preserve with intent to kill rhinos for a piece of keratin (the horn.)

So +1 for the fuzzy kitties. Maybe each preserve could have a non-friendly pride guarding the rhinos.???

Yup yup they should most definitely do that.

If only for the big, fat lulz!

This is the best nature story I’ve read in years!

It is the single most fitting and proper way for these little bastards to finally meet Justice.

Giganto In The Four Corners

JC Johnson
Published on Dec 14, 2010

Some of my earlier work. Please forgive me on some of the audio. I’ll make mention that one of the subjects discussed in this video, “Joe”- Not only has a “slouch” when he walks, ,, he also has a hump, or what appeared to be a hump on his back. Years later, I’m thinking that it was not a hump on his back? It was “wings” tucked up. We have many reports of “Batsquatch”…. Teec Mountain would be the ideal place for him to fly off of.

I also realize, in sharing these videos, many of you familiar with these areas may well want to go and investigate for your self. I strongly caution you upon encountering one of these creatures, to take nothing but pictures, and not to harm them in any way. Anyone interested in doing a “stakeout” of Teec Mountain, contact us here on YOU TUBE. We have some private land there. With a good blind, and the right camera equipment, with in a few days, if “Joe” is still around, you may well get some incredible photos.

Well, I must concur on the use of the term impressive. It certainly is. This thing is enormous. Note: If I find the clip I saw the other day of a guy holding up a recently deceased timber wolf I will add it to this thread.

Contemplation of this critter also causes the idea of the continued existence of the allegedly extinct and deservedly notorious Dire Wolf, which would be even more impressive — to be not so wild at all.

Hey, there’s room for everybody out there and you’ll be amazingly hard pressed to sway me otherwise.

“THE SKULL” (Crypto Four Corners)

JC Johnson
Published on Dec 10, 2010

A young man can’t seem to get away from a “skull” he found in the desert.

Freaky deaky… I think I would be far more freaked than this fellow was but it did spare him in the end, his friend as well, so there is that. But my word, I’m not sure what to think.

As far as the skull itself… fascinating… sounds maybe like a small dogman? Mainly because of the description he gives of the neck vertebrae.

Or maybe one of those “extinct” critters, the Amphicyonidae. They’re the Bear Dog. Or perhaps there are Dire Wolves still roaming. Or the fabulous Timber Wolf. These aren’t upright, though, so it’s not a good match for the traditional dogman.

Oh, gosh, I simply don’t know.

Special 200th Episode of Dogman Encounters

Dogman Encounters
Published on May 11, 2018

Tonight’s show marks the 200th episode of Dogman Encounters. Because of that, I decided to mix things up a bit. In the first half of tonight’s show, I’m going to narrate 4 encounters for you. In the second half of the show, Dave, a Dogman eyewitness from Ohio is going to tell you about his encounter and then Chris Edge, a Dogman Researcher from New Jersey is going to talk about several encounters various Dogman eyewitnesses have shared with him.

Thanks, so much, for listening and for supporting the eyewitnesses the way you do!

To visit Chris Edge’s YouTube Channel, please go to https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8gB…

The description pretty much says it all. Some good stories… some of them not all that far away, really. Oh dear.

Dead Dogman! (Dogman Encounters Episode 201)

Dogman Encounters
Published on May 18, 2018

Can you imagine what it would be like to be able to closely examine a dead Dogman? Well, tonight’s guest, George, doesn’t have to guess what doing that would be like. That’s because he did that, years ago. George has had his fair share of Dogman encounters. Before he looked over the body of that dead Dogman, he watched one chase a girl he knew from just feet away. We hope you tune in and listen to George talk about the dead Dogman he checked out, the poor girl he watched being chased by one, and several other encounters he’s had. If you prefer episodes that are packed with lots of encounters, tonight’s show is for you!

George certainly presents himself well and is quite articulate. I find nothing at all to complain about. What a fascinating array of experiences this man has lived through.

Dead Dogman (part 2) (Dogman Encounters Episode 202)

More details in this one. The dead one is covered pretty well.

From the descriptions of the ones he apparently sees frequently, the thought of a different species looms large. Different from the typical critter we are so used to hearing about in these various podcasts and reports.

Then we’re in America… and there are so many more.

Such goodness. And the number can get you thinkin,’ too, about the possible number of these fellas that are out there. There is plenty of room for them. The tracts of unexplored wilderness here in America and Canada alone is staggering. Note that I am using the word “unexplored” with precision. As in, no human has set foot here. Ever. It is a fact. Bigfoot and Dogman have available all the room they could ever want. And they know what to do with it.

Old mice suddenly had “young” brains after receiving low doses of a THC compound found in marijuana. The discovery has huge potential for people with diseases like Alzheimer’s

Learning and memory functions improved dramatically

We had previously observed that the endocannabinoid tone declines as we age, so the levels of endogenous substances decrease in older individuals. And this means they’re present inside our bodies to begin with. So what the plant compound does is just mimic our endogenous compounds.
Source
Journal source

Scientists have made a very interesting finding regarding the link between marijuana and brain function. It appears that ingestion of THC rejuvenates cognitive ability lost due to age. THC was administered to old mice who would normally have lowered cognitive ability, which caused the mice to be mentally rejuvenated and able to function on the same level as younger mice who were in their prime.
It’s clear to me that we need to be doing more formal studies on the medical benefits of marijuana and its compounds, especially since our bodies possess an endocannabinoid system designed to use compounds just like THC.

Hey, it’s a gift from God. It has been in use for thousands of years and is often found buried with ancient remains to ease the journey.

We can learn a lot from that.

Oumuamua

This is Oumuamua.

A visitor from outside of our solar system. At first thought to be just a weird looking rock. Until it started to do things that rocks don’t do.

And that, as you might imagine, is music to my ears.

Sadly we will never know the reality as it is now long gone, but man… this is some awesome high strangeness!

Cigar-shaped Interstellar Object ‘Oumuamua – is Speeding Up!

Speeding up is relative, really, but it is still outside of normal behavioral bounds. And we like that. Meanwhile… They’re still struggling to comprehend what this thing was. Comet? Maybe. Maybe something else entirely.

That’s the thing though. Scientists are actually fascinated by this thing. It’s weird. It’s a visitor from “out there.” Really, really out there.

At first it looked like a rock. It sure acted like a rock. An oddly shaped rock, but a rock. Then, holy crap, it should be slowing down more than it is. What the hell?! Rocks don’t do that!

But “consumer science” sets in, and now it’s “speeding up.” Because “not speeding up like it should”, is boring. For some reason.

Or, they never took a physics class.

Phage is a good man.

It’s stuff like this that makes me want to stay amongst the living, so, Thanks, Mother Nature, keep ‘em coming.

“Once we had to move into the residence of the president of the Reichstag for a short while because our house at Leipziger Platz was being renovated. We had taken a lion with us and put it in the basement. Suddenly, at night, we were awakened because the door to our bedroom was opening. Our lion stood before us. It had used its paws to push the handles on eight doors between the basement and the bedroom to find us. The lion was so excited to have found us, we just could not bring ourselves to take it back down to the basement. So, we kept him with us for the night…”

Meet Dakotaraptor, the first “giant” dromaeosaur from the Hell Creek formation.

I’ve been sitting on these illustrations for months and can’t think of the last time I’ve been so excited to illustrate a new taxon. At 5.5 meters in length and with magnificently robust ulnar quill knobs, this is not only the first “giant” dromaeosaur from Hell Creek, but it is also the first dromaeosaur in this size range with indisputable evidence of feathers. And not just shaggy and sparse “protofeathers” as many skeptics purport in defense of the “half-arse” integument pattern.

No, Dakotaraptor had massive ulnar quill knobs, which meant that its arms likely supported thick, heavy feathers with a stiff central rachis. This confirms, once and for all, that feathers stage 3 and beyond existed on dromaeosaurs larger than Velociraptor and Zhenyuanlong. What was such a large dromaeosaur doing with feathers like this? There are several options which are not mutually exclusive: brooding eggs, aggressive mating and territorial displays, shielding young… but many of you will recall my particular fondness for Denver Fowler’s 2011 paper on “raptor prey restraint”, which posited a unique predatory role for robust wings on non-volant dromaeosaurs. These wings would have acted as stabilizers and balancers for a large animal as it struggled atop still-living prey, much as modern birds of prey do. Modern hawks and eagles have evolved particularly stout and powerful ankles for this purpose, which allow greater torque for the inner claw on each foot to dig into unruly prey. This inner claw is, certainly by no coincidence, by far the largest on most birds of prey.

The use of RPR by Dakotaraptor means it would have been especially appropriate when grappling similarly-sized prey, and Hell Creek has given us the perfect also-feathered match: Ornithomimus, a new feathered specimen of which has been described just days before.

There is much to be said on Dakotaraptor, from its possible synonymity with Acheroraptor to its ecological relationships with other Hell Creek carnivores, but it should come as no surprise that the role of feathers in its predatory ecology is what interests me most! I look forward to seeing what future analyses and potentially more material will bring.

Comment by Project Manager, Yuichi Tsuda

The shape of Ryugu is now revealed. From a distance, Ryugu initially appeared round, then gradually turned into a square before becoming a beautiful shape similar to fluorite [known as the ‘firefly stone’ in Japanese]. Now, craters are visible, rocks are visible and the geographical features are seen to vary from place to place. This form of Ryugu is scientifically surprising and also poses a few engineering challenges.

First of all, the rotation axis of the asteroid is perpendicular to the orbit. This fact increases the degrees of freedom for landing and the rover decent operations. On the other hand, there is a peak in the vicinity of the equator and a number of large craters, which makes the selection of the landing points both interesting and difficult. Globally, the asteroid also has a shape like fluorite (or maybe an abacus bead?). This means we expect the direction of the gravitational force on the wide areas of the asteroid surface to not point directly down. We therefore need a detailed investigation of these properties to formulate our future operation plans.

The Project Team is fascinated by the appearance of Ryugu and morale is rising at the prospect of this challenge. Together with all of you, we have become the first eyewitnesses to see asteroid Ryugu. I feel this amazing honor as we proceed with the mission operations.

cry-olophosaurus

Pengornis houi

Pengornis was a genus of Enantiornithine dinosaur (commonly known as “opposite birds”) which split from the lineage of modern birds approximately 130 million years ago in the Early Cretaceous. The group is well known for sharing many traits with modern birds, including a full coat of feathers, grasping feet, and the capability of flight (although how good they were at flying has been a subject of debate). One of their most prominent features that separates their appearance from modern birds, however, is their teeth, which they may have used to easily crunch the exoskeletons of arthropods.

The genus Pengornis currently only consists of one species, P. houi, which is known from a single, but fairly complete, fossil skeleton. It was comparable in size to modern crows, and lived approximately 120 years ago in the Early Cretaceous of what is now China.
