  • Man died 'horror-movie' death from flesh-eating bacteria

    OCEAN CITY, Md. — On Sept. 11, Michael Funk was cleaning crab pots at his bayside condominium; four days later he was dead, the victim of flesh-eating bacteria. For Marcia Funk, his wife of 46 years, his death is compounded by what she called a lack of information here about the bacteria, Vibrio vulnificus. "I really feel they kept it quiet because it's a tourist resort," Marcia Funk said. "It's like something out of a horror movie." The bacteria, along with about a dozen others that are related, occurs naturally in areas of warm, brackish waters with low salinity. Most of the 80,000 people who become ill across the USA each year consume raw or under-cooked seafood, according to the Centers for

  • Investigator Claims 'Ufo Wreckage' Is Evidence Aliens Visited The Earth 250,000 Years Ago

    The discovery of an ancient piece of aluminium is being hailed as evidence that aliens visited Earth 250,000 years ago. The mysterious hunk of metal was found in Romania during the 1970s, when the country was under communist rule. Now tests at a lab in Lausanne, Switzerland, have revealed that the strange fragment of metal is made up of 90 percent aluminium and is 250,000 years old. Aluminium was not produced by mankind until about 200 years ago, so the discovery of the large chunk that could be up to 250,000 years old is being held up as a sensational find. Gheorghe Cohal, the Deputy Director of the Romanian Ufologists Association, told local media: "Lab tests concluded it is an old UFO fragment

  • ‘I dropped to my knees': Minn. firefighter responds to a fatal crash, finds his son’s body

    When he received the call, Randy Peterson was immediately gripped by the fear only a parent can know. The Minnesota man gives his free time to be a volunteer firefighter with the Ada Fire Department. So when his pager went off on Sunday night, it should have felt like any other call. There had been a car crash in Borup, a nearby town, and one of the cars had caught fire. Peterson was needed. He was a father with a strict routine. Each time his pager buzzed, he called to check on his three children, fearing the worst. Normally, they pick up and reassure him, before he reaches the scene. This time, though, his 16-year-old son Carter didn’t answer. Peterson knew the teenager had been out with his

    This week we're providing a series of Vulture Hacks: expert advice, gear guides, and recommendations to help you maximize your entertainment experience. In the late 2000s, there was an awful series of ads that Sony put out for PlayStation 3 under the banner “It Only Does Everything.” The TV spots typically argued, Hey, your girlfriend or wife would let you buy a PS3 if you simply show her that it can do stuff like play movies or music, too. The PS3 was the first game console that truly worked as a multimedia center. Now, with the PS3 essentially at the end of its lifespan, you can now pick them up for a song, whether off Amazon or used on eBay (if you pay more than $125, you’re paying too much).

  • 9 states are voting on marijuana — here are the issues

    Yes, looking beyond the Trump/Clinton squabble-fest, you will see that there are marijuana-related issues on the ballot in nine states, five will vote on out-and-out legalization: Arizona, California, Maine, Massachusetts and Nevada, while four, Arkansas, Florida, Montana and North Dakota, are looking to make medical marijuana legal to one degree or another. First note that over 50% of Americans now support some form of legalization. So pot isn’t a Democratic ‘yes,’ and Republican ‘no,’ issue anymore. It’s probably the case that more people who are in favor of legalization are more passionate about the issue than those opposed, meaning its likely that more pro voters will get off their duff—and remember to vote pro-weed—than those opposed.

  • GOP senators aren’t happy that John McCain was probably caught telling the truth

    Dude, you weren’t supposed to say that out loud! On Monday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) confirmed one of Democrats’ worst fears. If Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton wins the White House, but Republicans keep the Senate, the GOP “will be united against any Supreme Court nominee that Hillary Clinton, if she were president, would put up.” If America wants to have a Supreme Court in five years, in other words, it better elect the same party to the White House and the Senate. Not long after McCain’s comment, however, a new talking point was born. McCain’s own spokesperson said McCain did not actually mean what he said. The senator will “thoroughly examine the record of any Supreme Court

Chief among the interesting points in the article is a quote from Alpert's instructor pilot, Lt. Col. John Rahill, about the F-35's dogfighting ability. Speaking about the nuanced technical and tactical differences between the F-35, the future plane of the VANG, and the F-16, the VANG's current plane, Rahill said this: "If you get into a dogfight with the F-35, somebody made a mistake.
