The Daily Word in Real X-Files, Real Dragons and Real Ducks

Spooky Edition

The Daily Word

Not enough scary clowns in your life this Halloween? Check out this collection of creepy clown portraits.

A real-life flying dragon was caught on camera and uploaded to YouTube. (Pay no attention to how much clearer the "dragon" is than its surroundings.)

Tin foil fans reached a mouth-foaming crescendo after a well-known UFOlogist died under mysterious circumstances during an investigation into "black magic" practiced by "elites." He was appearing as a speaker at a convention in Poland when they found his body, sitting on a couch in his hotel room, supposedly with "black liquid" coming from his mouth. Just days before, he had told his mother that he was in trouble, and she should investigate if anything happened to him. Shades of X-Files ...

A chunk of metal was discovered in Romania in the 1970s that turned out to be 90% aluminum. Romanian officials claimed it was 25,000 years old. The story only just broke for the rest of the world, and now some internet folk are saying it's proof we were visited by aliens.

Did I freak you out too much today? I'm sorry, dear reader. Consider getting an emotional support duck to help you get through this time of apprehension.

The Daily Word in Suicidal Chatbots, Wandering Black Holes and Escaping From the Matrix

The Daily Word

So ... why are we scared of clowns?

Did Microsoft's Japanese chatbot, Rinna, really become suicidal this week?

A couple of billionaires are funding our escape from what they believe is our simulated reality. You know, when I espouse nutty ideas like simulation theory or a holographic universe, it's okay, because the rest of the world tells me I'm crazy. I don't know if I'm comfortable with them agreeing.

Let's turn the creep factor up some. Astronomers have discovered a wandering black hole creeping around another galaxy.

Literature

Bad Clowns Investigated at Page One

Benjamin Radford, writer and skeptical investigator, will be at Page One Books at 4pm on Saturday, April 23, to talk about and sign his non-fiction effort, Bad Clowns.

The book is described as such: "Bad clowns—those malicious misfits of the midway who terrorize, haunt, and threaten us—have long been a cultural icon. This book describes the history of bad clowns, why clowns go bad and why many people fear them. Going beyond familiar clowns such as the Joker, Krusty, John Wayne Gacy and Stephen King's Pennywise, it also features bizarre, lesser-known stories of weird clown antics including Bozo obscenity, Ronald McDonald haters, killer clowns, phantom-clown abductors, evil-clown panics, sex clowns, carnival clowns, troll clowns and much more. Bad Clowns blends humor, investigation and scholarship to reveal what is behind the clown's dark smile."

Radford is a writer, investigator and columnist for Discovery News. He is the author of eight books, most recently Mysterious New Mexico: Miracles, Magic, and Monsters in the Land of Enchantment and Tracking the Chupacabra: The Vampire Beast in Fact, Fiction, and Folklore, both published by the University of New Mexico Press. Radford lives in Corrales.

SeaWorld has opened a new exhibit where park-goers can see rescued manatees get rehabilitated. Must be part of their "We Swear We're Not Evil Slave Owners" campaign.
