Guess Who?

To put a face to a name

House of Horrors

32 Comments

In South Africa

 

A man held his wife and 5 children prisoner in their house for umpteen years. He abused them beat them burnt them with a blow torch and what else we can only imagine. After he threatened the boy of 11 with death the child escaped and ran to the neighbours. The neighbours said they never knew but phoned the father who came to fetch the boy but luckily also informed the police.

A 5 star horror story.

The papers say they are not allowed to publish his name but his name and photo had already appeared in one of the papers  (now removed) so I am passing his name  on. Herman Engelbrecht of Springs. He looks like low life with a bikers outfit on. Did he belong to a motorbike club?

Name and shame him and let the prison inmates deal with him. They will do a better job than the courts.

What would you have done if you were the wife?

I really believe I would have taken an axe / knife  and chopped him to pieces when he was asleep. Surely het must have slept some times?

I am so horrified that I have murder in my heart.

A record-breaking school of mobular rays took over the waters off the coast of Baja, California and it was all caught on film!

They are like a spectacular group of UFOs flying out of the sky to amaze. These rays are amazing and one you see them up close you can realize that they are very intelligent and fascinating creatures.

Adams is best known as the author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, which originated in 1978 as a BBC radio comedy before developing into a “trilogy” of five books that sold more than 15 million copies in his lifetime and generated a television series, several stage plays, comics, a computer game, and in 2005 a feature film. Adams’s contribution to UK radio is commemorated in The Radio Academy‘s Hall of Fame.[1]

No, this isn’t photoshopped. This is a cardinal “gynandromorph” – an animal that exhibits both female and male sexual characteristics. As different sexes are differently coloured, each half of the bird is a different shade.

Fossilised bones of dinosaur believed to be the largest creature ever to walk the Earth has been unearthed in Argentina, palaeontologists say.

Based on its huge thigh bones, it was 40m (130ft) long and 20m (65ft) tall. Weighing in at 77 tonnes, it was as heavy as 14 African elephants, and seven tonnes heavier than the previous record holder, Argentinosaurus. Scientists believe it is a new species of titanosaur – an enormous herbivore dating from the Late Cretaceous period. Read more: http://ow.ly/wXCu1

I Have Egg on my face, this seems to be not true

Read here – http://www.hoax-slayer.com/unsold-car-stockpile-photographs.shtml

Not that something like this would have been hard for me to believe I may add

Read in Zerohedge.com about all the unsold cars in the world. New but not sold.Because less people can afford to buy new cars but car makers continue to manufacture… Go figure!

ll around the world these cars just keep on piling up, there is no end in sight.  The economy shouts out quite loud that nobody has the money anymore to spend on a new car. The reason being that they are making their “old” cars go on a lot longer.  But we cannot stop making them, soon we will run out of space to park them.  We are nearly running out of space to drive them that’s for sure!

This is just one park to give you some idea of what it looks like  (it happens to be in Spain) of the thousands all over the world.

What do You do with an empty glass bottle?

27 Comments

In the early 1900s, Fort Bragg residents threw their household garbage over the cliffs above what is now Glass Beach. It is hard to imagine this happening today, but back then people dumped all kinds of refuse straight into the ocean, including old cars, and their household garbage, which of course included lots of glass.

Beginning in 1949, the area around Glass Beach became a public dump, and locals referred to it as “The Dumps.” Sometimes fires were lit to reduce the size of the trash pile (up to 30 feet high), however in 1967, the city leaders closed the area. Various cleanup programs were undertaken through the years to try to correct the damage, but without success.

Over the next 30 years the pounding waves cleaned the beach, by breaking down everything but glass and pottery. The pounding waves washed the trash up and down, back and forth. Tons of polished, broken glass were created by the pounding surf. These smoothened, coloured glass particles then settled along the sea shore in millions, and so a magnificent beach was formed. The name was changed from, “The Dump” to what we currently know as, “The Glass Beach”.

The sea glass that was created is the product of a very long and interesting process.  It can take anywhere from 10 to 30 years to make sea glass, the name for any piece of glass that finds its way to the ocean and tumbles around in the water long enough to frost and smooth its surface. Once it makes its way into the ocean, the glass is broken up into shards and is tumbled around in the water, where sand and other rocks act like sandpaper to smooth out its rough edges. Sometimes as the sea glass is passed through fire, it becomes “fire glass”, the rarest of sea glass with certain “inclusions”, just like precious gems.

In 1998, the private owner of the property determined that Glass Beach should belong to the public and in 2002 it became part of MacKerricher State Park, open to the public.

Within a period of few years the Glass Beach won fame, attracting a large number of tourists every year. Way back in time, people wanted to dump their glass products on this shore; now they would try to get one of these pieces to take home as a souvenir. It is ironic but true that where once it was illegal to dispose the glass on the shore, it now is a crime to remove it.

Visiting the Glass Beach today is a unique experience. What makes it even more remarkable, are the sounds produced by the glass pebbles as they are being washed away by the gentle waves.
