Farmer James Bristle and a friend were digging in his southern Michigan soybean field when they unearthed what looked like a bent fence post at first, caked with mud. It was actually a part of a pelvis from an ancient woolly mammoth that lived up to 15,000 years ago. Researchers from the University of Michigan used an excavator to recover 20% of the animal's skeleton this week in Washtenaw County's Lima Township. Aside from the pelvis, they also found the skull and two tusks, along with numerous vertebrae, ribs and both shoulder blades. Continue reading to watch the raw un-edited video footage of the dig and more pictures.
In the past, professor Stephen Hawking said that artificial intelligence could control humans in 100 years, but a new warning states that if AI doesn't conquer humanity, an advanced alien civilization may do so. "If aliens visit us, the outcome could be much like when Columbus landed in America, which didn't turn out well for the Native Americans. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonize whatever planets they can reach," said Hawking. Continue reading for the full video segment on Hawking and alien life.
Unlike DMC-12 DeLorean you see in the films, this one was customized by Putsch Racing and features a tuned stock engine fitted with the Weber carbs and race exhaust to produce 210-horsepower. The car was also gutted to weigh just 2500-pounds, and "the racing PRV engine is being finished right now and is expected to produce 260-280 hp with the same carbs and exhaust," according to car spotter "DrRockstar1". Best of all the flame-spitting race exhaust still has catalytic converters, making it legal for the streets and international rally events. Continue reading to see an electric-powered DeLorean.

Scientists currently working off west Africa in the Cape Verde Islands have found evidence of a mega tsunami caused by the sudden collapse of a volcano around 73,000 years ago. This collapse created an 800-foot wave that swallowed an island more than 30-miles away.
"Our point is that flank collapses can happen extremely fast and catastrophically, and therefore are capable of triggering giant tsunamis. They probably don't happen very often. But we need to take this into account when we think about the hazard potential of these kinds of volcanic features," said lead author Ricardo Ramalho, who did the research as a postdoctoral associate at Columbia University's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Continue reading for another video on mega tsunamis and more information.
