Crop circle appears in time for Summer Solstice on farm near Wiltshire
The summer solstice is traditionally a time of peace and love.  So it was particularly fitting that this crop circle should appear in a field in Wiltshire yesterday - right next to a heart-shaped wood.  But the sentiment wasn't exactly shared by the farmer whose land the circle appeared on. He blasted the design an 'act of vandalism'.

Clouds mistaken for UFO's over mountain range near Mayo, Ireland

IT was nearly a case of calling Mulder and Scully last Friday evening as strange cloud formations appeared over west Mayo which would not be out of place on an episode of X-Files.
Fortunately, an invasion by another life-form was not being planned and instead it was a more innocent collection of Lenticular clouds, which are often mistaken for UFOs because of their unusual uniform surface and saucer-like shape. The clouds appeared over the skies of Mayo on Friday evening and their strange shape made for spectacular viewing, and much discussion.

Paul the psychic octopus can pick World Cup winners!

Call him the eight-armed oracle of the deep, soccer's seer of the sea.  Or you can just call him Paul. Paul's an octopus with a special gift: He can predict winners of World Cup matches from his temple -- OK, maybe it's just a tank -- at the Sea Life aquarium in Oberhausen, Germany.  Paul's handlers place two glass boxes in his tank -- one with a German flag, the other with the flag of an opponent. Then they place shells and other treats inside. The first box Paul picks is the winner -- and he's pretty good at it.

Brain scans can learn more about a person then even they may know themselves!

Brain scans may be able to predict what you will do better than you can yourself, and might offer a powerful tool for advertisers or health officials seeking to motivate consumers, researchers said on Tuesday.  They found a way to interpret "real time" brain images to show whether people who viewed messages about using sunscreen would actually use sunscreen during the following week.  The scans were more accurate than the volunteers were, Emily Falk and colleagues at the University of California Los Angeles reported in the Journal of Neuroscience.

Sabbath Assembly becomes official 'house band' of the Process Church
Sabbath Assembly is the house band of the Process Church of the Final Judgment. The band wants to revive this ‘60s religious cult by writing an album based on their hymns. The main tenet of the Process Church is a reconciliation of Christ and Satan. They were accused of associating with the Manson Family. Apparently, they began as a sub-sect of Scientology but were pronounced heretics by L. Ron Hubbard. But see, all of this information begins to eclipse the band.
