New Pic of Beast of Bodwin

A 19-year-old caught pictures of what he believes to be the "Beast of Bodwin," a creature that has been reported for years and is thought to be a Big Cat. Henry Warren lives a few miles from Bodwin Moor, where the Beast is said to lurk, and snapped these photos when a Big Cat startled him.

Zildjian

If you have ever played the drums, you know that every little thing makes a big difference in sound. Stretching or loosening the skin even just a little on any side changes the tone of the drum. Cymbals cannot be tuned, though; if you want a different sound from a cymbal, you need to buy a different one. And one of the best is zildjian.

Zildjian has been around for almost as long as they have been manufacturing trapkits and are well known throughout the industry as being among the best.

Gigantic Supershark Ate a Great White Whole

This is why I don't swim in the ocean: Scientists theorize that a nearly 10'-long Great White shark which was tagged years ago may have been eaten whole by another shark suffering from Gigantism. Literally, a Jaws in the ocean!

According to researchers, the shark appeared to have swum to extreme depths for a time before its body temperature became consistent with that of being inside another creature's belly. Keep in mind that the shark "victim" here was a very large shark herself, meaning whatever ate her has to well exceed 10' in length - in fact, it has to have a stomach large enough to accommodate a 10' shark!

The scariest part? The creature later swam to the ocean's surface. So... have fun, surfers!

Here is an article on the issue, along with a brief video.

Skeleton of 'Black Shuck' Uncovered

Archaeologists claim to have found the skeletal remains of a large dog that may have belonged to a legendarily fearsome creature known as "Black Shuck" in the ruins of Leiston Abbey in Suffolk, England.

'Black Shuck' was the name given a gigantic, 7'-tall canine that is said to have roamed the Suffolk countryside in the 15th Century. While there are numerous legends of such "hellhounds" or "devil dogs" throughout the British Isles, Black Shuck is probably the most famous. The beast was said to have had a black coat and glowing, red eyes. The word Shuck actually comes from the word scucca, which means demon.

In its most famed encounter, recorded by the reverend Abraham Fleming in 1577, it killed a man and a boy in a church, legendarily leaving scorch marks on the doors when it fled. To this day, people claim to see the beast roaming the area. The legend is so pervasive that the name of the Bungay soccer team is the Black Dogs.

Allred & Assoc.

It is simply a truism that we live in a world where one must pay for protection against all things at all times. A downturn in one's health, losing one's transportation, or the threat of losing one's home can literally mean the difference between barely making it and not making it all! Luckily for North Carolina residents, there is don allred insurance. They provide coverage for all sorts of insurance, including health, life, auto, and more. Be sure to check them out before you commit to a plan!

Returning Soon

Sorry for the scant posting lately but, as I said a few years back, I had to devote a lot of time toward other pursuits in order to afford to live. Now that I can no longer afford to live and refuse to work both day and night just to barely survive, I should have a little more time to post.

I actually planned to post more often the last few months but my desk fell apart a few months back and I had to find a way to afford a new (very inexpensive) one. Honestly, as much as I enjoy blogging, it simply doesn't pay for itself anymore, which makes it harder to devote resources toward.

Dance

These days, you can learn a lot about a lot of things on the Interwebz but you still probably need to go to an actual studio to learn how to dance properly. It is even better when you go to a studio run by a world-renowned dance expert who has choreographed dance scenes for movies and TV and taught celebrities how to move. If you are in the California area, you can find professional dance classes here.

500-lb. Boar Killed in North Carolina

500-lb Boar Shot in North Carolina
500-lb Boar
A few years back, hunters noticed an incredibly large boar on camera. The boar was marked for death but it took until now for anyone to bring it to justice! Hunter Jett Webb shot and killed the beast with a .308 rifle after stumbling across it almost by accident.

“I just set out to put a little meat in the freezer,” he says. “But afterwards I was completely blown away.”

Actually Webb had been hunting the boar after spotting it in the area earlier in the week. He bagged a similar-sized hog a year or so back that is mounted on the wall of the hunting club to which he belongs.

Eco-Drive Watches

Hey! Check out these these eco drive watches! They are powered by light - any light, not just the sun - so that makes them... is that still solar-powered? (I don't know much about Geology.) Anywho, they are really nice watches that never need a battery, so not only are they eco-friendly and good for the environment, they save you money. And watch batteries can be rather expensive, depending on the type your watch needs - I am guessing the more expensive the watch, the more expensive the battery, but that is just a guess.

While it is true that all these techno-gadgets with which we are surrounded these days all have clocks, I love wearing a watch. And, more than once, I have actually needed one! So check them out and feel good that you are doing the world a favor.

LSD Helps Terminal Patients

Although the article is brief and says little about the study, an article reports that LSD can help terminal patients better handle their impending death. According to one of the researchers, the patients' anxiety went down and stayed down. This signals "success" in the sense that none of the participants were harmed, all reported that the LSD trip helped them, and the effects lasted. This is the first serious study involving the drug in more than 40 years.

Mostly, the test proves that LSD can be researched just like any other drug, although the positive and lasting effects it had on anxiety levels in patients is pretty important, too. Some of the participants were given 200mg of LSD while the rest were given 20mg. Those in the first group reported a decrease in anxiety while those who took the smaller amount reported an increase in anxiety - until they were given the 200mg dose, at which point their anxiety levels also fell and stayed down.
