Professor Hex's Monster A-Go-Go! 
It's time for the 2nd Annual Professor Hex's Monster A-Go-Go Show!

For readers in the Kansas City area, be sure to stop by the Empire Room (334 31st St - (816) 561-2640) this Thursday night for the scariest monster show ever put on stage! I have travelled the world collecting these monstrous specimens and teaching them to go-go dance for your amusement. Don't miss this once a year spookstravaganza!

Here are some pictures from last year's show.

Treasure on Ebay 
Another side of the treasures in Britain story.

THE British Museum pleaded yesterday with the internet auction company eBay to stop selling ancient artefacts unearthed by people who have apparently failed to report their discoveries under the Treasure Act.

Found: 50,000 treasures unearthed by Britain's amateur archaeologists.

Maybe I'll break out the detector this weekend.

See also this treasure story about a man who found a Roman magical charm in some topsoil. The charm is one of five found in Britain, and of no more than a few dozen from anywhere in the Roman empire.

Happy hunting.

The 9/11 Secret in the CIA's Back Pocket 
It is shocking: The Bush Administration is suppressing a CIA report on 9/11 until after the election, and this one names names. Although the report by the inspector general's office of the CIA was completed in June, it has not been made available to the Congressional intelligence committees that mandated the study almost two years ago.

Sea Monster Theories Flood In 
Tucked away in this article is the following startling observation:

Dr Brian McCusker, of Newcastle University, rang to say when he has been fishing off the St Bees and Seascale coast he has noticed weird inbred beasts. He said some of them are "like something from the Alien film" about four or five feet long.

Will someone please get a video camera down to St. Bees and Seascale?

10th annual Hairy Man Festival

It's the stuff of pirate legends, but don't waste your breath asking Joel Ruth on what stretch of Florida's Treasure Coast he found his hoard of Spanish pieces of eight -- waiting to be scratched out of the sand with bare fingers and toes.

Especially, if like Ruth, they've just found about 180 near-mint silver coins worth more than $40,000.

Is Bush seriously ill? 
The "Bush Bulge" speculation has been raging on the internet since the first debate and Salon has an interesting article about the pros and cons or the bulge being a sound prompting device.

Salon also has an interesting observation by Dr. W. Kendall Tongier, M.D (scroll down) on possible explanations for Bush's droopy face and spittle accumulation in the corner of his mouth during the last debate.

And finally, WhatReallyHappened points out that the bulge may have been caused by this vest, designed as an intermediate-term treatment option for people at high risk for sudden cardiac arrest.

Bush has skipped his physical this year. Is he ill?

Technical expert: Bush was wired 
This story keeps gaining momentum in the mainstream media and these photos are worth a look. I don't see this going away for the president anytime soon.

Big Brother In Your Car  
Deep inside the United States Department of Transportation, Big Brother is rearing his head. On the third floor of the USDOT building in the heart of Washington, DC, a shadowy government agency that doesn't respond to public inquiries about its activities is coordinating a plan to use monitoring devices to catalogue the movements of every American driver.

According to this article, they've already spent $4 billion in American tax dollars on this boondoggle. With zero accountability.

Bigfoot Stalkers on Forked Path  
Bigfoot in Virginia!

The witness, William Dranginis, says Bigfoot investigators in the Northwest laughed at him, but Virginia encounters with the Sasquatch are not that unusual. I found two, from the 70s and 80s, without too much effort. You can read them here and here.

Both reports are from this excellent Bigfoot in the News page. They list sightings going back to the 1800s. And frankly, with all due respect to West Coast researchers, "Wildman" sightings in the East predate West Coast sightings simply because of settlement patterns. Bigfeet might only live in the western woods because they were moved out of their natural habitat by the arrival of colonists. A Sasquatch "Trail of Tears", if you will.
