Here's your spooky video of the day: A snake catching cave bats. Enjoy.
A Burger King in Queens, NY dressed their entire building as the "ghost of McDonald's."

Meet the "churk," a real-life government genetic engineering experiment in 1960 that resulted in a chicken-turkey hybrid. This monster was mentally retarded, physically deformed and grew twisted feathers. Science.
Irish police chased down a UFO and pulled it over. Turns out the whole thing was a publicity stunt (false flag operation) that the cops were in on (conspiracy)to promote a children's art festival (Illuminati indoctrination camp). Confirmed.
Two completely different women in Ghana are accused of being reckless witches. Reckless, because they both apparently crash landed while flying. One was in the form of a bird (allegedly) until she smashed into a woman's house and turned back into a human. The other was flying somewhere (allegedly) when she felt an "electric shock" that made her fall from the sky. According to the article: "There have, however, been suggestions that the woman might have been suffering from mental problems." Understatement.
A Florida judge said during a ruling that Bitcoin isn't real money. I can't tell if this is good or bad. Uncertainty.
FBI Director James Comey gave an address to the American Bar Association annual conference and told everyone the awful news: The FBI has a ton of trouble breaking into people's phones. And unfortunately, government agencies have no recourse. That means it's up to us—the little people—to make it possible for them to spy on us. Cooperation.
The Daily Word in Spain, UFOs and Clinical Possession
Two government workers in Spain got busted for skipping work ... for 15 years!
Hey, look what else happened in Spain: A woman was arrested after allegedly stalking Stephen Hawking across multiple countries and sending him death threats.
Board-certified psychiatrist Richard Gallagher says sometimes, crazy people are legitimately possessed by evil spirits. He notes that some "possessed" people speak in languages they shouldn't know or can even know secrets about strangers. (I don't think he's ever heard of "cold reading." Look it up.)
Some badass NM scientists are going after the Zika virus by enacting large-scale genocide on those blood-sucking mosquito jerks.
