The Winter Storm Bozeman was a particularly severe lake-effect snowstorm originating from the Great Lakes region, with areas in and around Buffalo, New York, particularly the city's southern suburbs, receiving snowfall totals in the range of 5-7 feet. Impacts were wide-ranging, including several professional sporting events, though economic impacts were not immediately known. With a forecast for warmer temperatures and rain, fears quickly arose for potentially severe flooding as a result of melting snow. The maximum snowfall recorded from the storm was 88 inches (220 cm) in Cowlesville, a hamlet within the town of Bennington, New York. Continue reading to see how crazy it really got.
Physicist Dr Brandenburg claims an ancient Martian civilizations known as Cydonians and Utopians were devastated by a nuclear attack, and purportedly, he has evidence that can still be seen today. He adds: "The Martian surface is covered with a thin layer of radioactive substances including uranium, thorium and radioactive potassium - and this pattern radiates from a hot spot on Mars. A nuclear explosion could have sent debris all around the planet." Continue reading for another video and more information.
When you rent office space, the last thing you'd expect to find is a door that blends right in with the wood flooring. However, that's exactly what this father and son found when they began moving things into the office. Even if you've come across something similar to this in other places, the leasing company definitely should have taken you down (or cleared everything out) there before signing it over. Continue reading to see why.

You know how some horror movies begin with a group of people getting lost in the woods? Well, this group of hikers in Northern Germany stumbled upon something that would fit right into one of those films. War movie buffs probably already have somewhat of an idea about what those pipes might be, but everyone else who come across them would not even dare get close them. Continue reading to see the creepiness that ensued when these people ventured inside.
You've probably seen, or at least heard, of the 262-foot hole that appeared in Siberia a few months ago, but now researchers have descended into what local residents call the "End of the World" crater. The leader of this current expedition,V ladimir Pushkarev, director of the Russian Centre of Arctic Exploration, says: "I have heard about this idea of a phenomenon like the Bermuda Triangle, but I repeat, our scientists need to work on their materials first and only then draw some definite conclusions." Continue reading for a video, more pictures and additional information.
Here's another look at a few new pages that were just released of the Voynich Manuscript, an illustrated codex hand-written in an unknown writing system. The vellum in the book pages has been carbon-dated to the early 15th century (1404-1438), and may have been composed in Northern Italy during the Italian Renaissance. The manuscript is named after Wilfrid Voynich, a Polish book dealer who purchased it in 1912. No one has yet succeeded in deciphering the text, and it has become a famous case in the history of cryptography. The mystery of the meaning and origin of the manuscript has excited the popular imagination, making the manuscript the subject of novels and speculation. Continue reading to see more.
Sometimes, home buyers might miss a thing or two before they move in, and for this family, it was a strange metal door in the backyard. Turns out, this door was actually a nuclear fallout shelter, complete with perfectly preserved vintage products from the 1960s. The previous owner, surgeon Frank Pansch, built it two years prior to the Cuban Missile Crisis. Click here to view the first image in today's viral picture gallery.

UFO researchers certainly aren't the most credible source out there, but Scott Waring of UFOSightingsDaily reportedly received an email from a secret whistle-blowing employee of the ESA that states, "Comet 67P is NOT a comet. Some 20 years ago NASA began detecting radio bursts from an unknown origin out in space. It would later be known that these had likely come from the direction of the now named comet 67P. It does show signs on its outside of machine like parts and unnatural terrain." Continue reading for a detailed video explanation of these claims.
Being called the "new guy" at work is bad enough for some people, but these job titles might be some of the most bizarre you've ever heard of, starting with Ludwig Dahl. He's apparently "in charge of the big door", but that just seems a bit vague, doesn't it? Even something as simple as "main door technician" would have made him look better on television.
