These 15 facts about the Bermuda Triangle will make you SHIVER

These 15 facts about the Bermuda Triangle will make you SHIVER
About the Bermuda Triangle – About the Bermuda Triangle – The Bermuda Triangle is a triangular region in the North Atlantic ocean that is somewhat bounded by Miami, Bermuda and Puerto Rico.
This area has been known to exude paranormal activity and is even feared by many people. Although many skeptics will chose to degrade this area’s abilities, others may even blow it out of proportion.

Truth is, none of us really know what goes on in this daunting area, but what we do know is that too much has happened to deem it a coincidence.
The Bermuda Triangle also goes by the name of “The Devil’s Triangle” and it isn’t too hard to see why. Many curious disappearances have occurred in this region, so many in fact, that speculation and myths have been on the rise for centuries.
Many explorers and navigators have even reported seeing strange lights and unexplainable occurrences that if spoken about, will surely make them look like they’ve spent too many time at sea. What’s worse is that there has been no recognition for these impossible occurrences from the government and so it is left to the public to fantasize over. From ship to airplane, bizarre events have rattled even the most conservative of minds and will continue to do so.

15 facts about the Bermuda Triangle

15. Christopher Columbus Was The First To Speculate Over The Bermuda Triangle

via emaze.com

Christopher Columbus kept a journal throughout his voyages in hopes of keeping every little detail documented. His journal, “Vita del Ammiraglio” which translates to, “The Life of The Admiral” proved to be very informative in helping the modern world understand what went on all those hundred of years ago.

In 1492, Columbus set sail in hopes of finding an alternative route to Asia, and ended up discovering the Americas instead. His journey brought him directly into what some people like to call, “The Devil’s Triangle” but unfortunately for the native people of North America, the Bermuda Triangle did not disappear Columbus’ ship.

“There exists the possibility of never leaving this legendary sea. My compass acts strangely. This sea seems to have the ability to draw things in from all over the Atlantic like a catch-basin.” Is an entry from Columbus’ journal. The explorer also documented witnessing a fiery ball fall from the heavens.

Kirikiri and 4 Other Prisons in Nigeria That Will Put Fear of God in You

Kirikiri and 4 Other Prisons in Nigeria That Will Put Fear of God in You

Kirikiri and 4 Other Prisons in Nigeria That Will Put Fear of God in You

Let us begin with a story, former President Olusegun Obasanjo told in 2014. The then Akwa Ibom state governor, Godswill Akpabio did something quite funny and eye-opening. 

While reacting to the crisis in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Akpabio, confessed to the putrid performance of governments of the PDP as they faced an uncertain journey to the polls:

“We have messed up,” he pleaded with Obasanjo, whose help he sought, “Please [don’t abandon us]. For me, I don’t want to go to jail and my children are too young…”

Even among the high and mighty, the fear of prisons in Nigeria is a real thing. And these are the most feared ones:

7 people who faked their own death and almost got away with it

7 people who faked their own death and almost got away with it

7 people who faked their own death and almost got away with it

Perhaps we have all thought about how nice it would be to get out of debt or avoid a boring party by faking our own deaths, but, for obvious reasons, very few of us ever actually go through with it.
Well, these 7 people tried to fake their own deaths and actually almost got away with it:
1. John Darwin
In 2002, Darwin tried to outwit police not just once, but twice. The first time, Darwin actually faked his death quite successfully. He timed weather patterns and took his canoe out on a particularly rainy day. The police found his oar and his canoe and assumed Darwin had drowned in the rough water. Darwin’s debt was forgiven, his wife received a hefty insurance payout and Darwin went on living hidden in his own house for five years until he got sick of it and hatched another plan. One day he walked to a police station faking amnesia. That didn’t go over well and the whole scandal unfolded. Nice try, John.
2. Marcus Schrenker
In 2009, Schrenker thought faking an airplane crash and death was the best way to stay out of jail. On a flight course from Indiana to Florida, Schrenker called in a fake distress signal to air traffic controllers and jumped from the plane. He parachuted to an area where he left his hidden motorcycle and rode to Florida. There he hid in a campground for a few days until he was found and arrested. His plan may have worked if authorities actually believed he had died in the crash, but it was a very worthy effort, Marcus.
3. Bennie Wint
In 1989, Wint feigned drowning to avoid a supposed jail sentence. While on vacation in Florida with his fiance and daughter, he went for a swim and never came back. Wint’s body wasn’t found until when he was pulled over during a routine traffic stop 20 years later. When police couldn’t find any record of a William Sweet they took Wint in for questioning and he spilled the truth. Apparently, when Wint “drowned” he simply swam down the beach in knee-high water, got to shore and walked away. He hitchhiked to Alabama and made a new ife for himself with a new name, a new wife and a son. 20 years is a long time to lead a double life and Wint almost got away with it forever.
4. William Grothe
In 2009, Grothe staged his own murder and even claimed to be the murderer. One day, for no apparent reason, he abandoned his car in a Nashville park, left his belongings littered around the town and ran away. Later, he disguised his voice and called the police claiming to be his own killer, but the police weren’t fooled. They found him hiding in a motel in Montana a few weeks later. No one really knows why Grothe faked his own death, but his one-million dollar life insurance policy could have been the motivating factor. Too bad he never saw any of that money.

You won’t believe what the ‘tiny pocket’ on jeans is really for!

You won’t believe what the ‘tiny pocket’ on jeans is really for!

You won’t believe what the ‘tiny pocket’ on jeans is really for!
The pocket nested (usually) above a bigger one is so small it can only fit a finger or two just a little half way!

It doesn’t/actually can’t function as a real pocket because it’s unusually tiny and it’s usually lodged in a ‘real pocket’ (slightly up on the real pocket).jeans-tiny-pocket-2
But then this confusing ‘pocket’ is actually a pocket designed way back for cowboys to keep their watches (remember jeans were designed initially for cowboys?) safe as far back as the 1800’s!

Grammy Awards 2017: Beyoncé leads nominations with Lemonade

Grammy Awards 2017: Beyoncé leads nominations with Lemonade

Grammy Awards 2017: Beyoncé leads nominations with Lemonade

Lemonade album scored the singer nine nods, followed closely by Drake, Rihanna and Kanye West who all have eight nominations each and Adele with five.

Beyoncé has scored nine Grammy nominations for her album Lemonade.

The singer, who has previously won 20 Grammys, has nods in major categories including record of the year, song of the year and album of the year. She’s closely followed by Drake, Rihanna and Kanye West, who all have eight nominations each.

Adele has scored five nominations for her album 25. The singer has previously won 10 Grammys. She’ll duke it out against Beyoncé for album of the year alongside Drake, Justin Bieber and country singer Sturgill Simpson, a surprise nominee for A Sailor’s Guide to Earth.

This year’s new artist category sees Chance the Rapper continue a banner year with a nomination alongside Anderson Paak, Maren Morris, Kelsey Ballerino and the Chainsmokers. The breakout rapper has received seven nominations in total, also featured in categories including best rap album.

David Bowie has also picked up posthumous nominations in five categories, including best rock performance and best rock song. Last year’s ceremony saw Lady Gaga perform a tribute to the late singer.

Amy Schumer has picked up two nominations for comedy album and spoken-word album for the audio version of her book, while breakout Netflix show Stranger Things has also scored two nods for its score.

The full list of nominees has a notable absentee, Frank Ocean, whose acclaimed album Blonde was not entered before the 30 September deadline. “That institution certainly has nostalgic importance,” Ocean told the New York Times last month. “It just doesn’t seem to be representing very well for people who come from where I come from, and hold down what I hold down.”

West has said that he would boycott the awards if Ocean failed to receive any nominations. Speaking during a show in California last month, West said: “The album I listen to the most this year is Frank Ocean’s album. I’ll tell you this right now, if his album is not nominated in no [sic] categories, I’m not showing up to the Grammys. As artists, we’ve got to come together to fight the bullshit.”

While West has eight nominations, he’s not included in major categories, such as record, song and album of the year. His album The Life of Pablo is only featured in rap-specific categories.

At the 2016 awards, Taylor Swift picked up album of the year while Kendrick Lamar won five prizes.

The 2017 ceremony will be hosted by James Corden and take place on 12 February.
