According to Palmistry only 3% of people have an X on both palms.

Its not Palmistry or any superstitious technique originating from India. This is an incredibly ancient method utilized by Egyptians and Greeks to foresay someone’s future.

In truth last acknowledged historic record of this technique is discussed in Great Alexanders period where the royal consultants have actually suggested that the great Alexander will be the best leader in the era due to the reality that he had 2 plainly noticeable letter Xs in both palms.

STI university in Moscow (Russia) revealed their most present term paper on “X palm secret and Spirit Science formula” which studied more than 2 Mn million people throughout the world to understand the link between the letter X and the fate of subjects. They expose on their paper that everybody with letter X on their both palms were the most impressive individuals they found among 2 Mn topics, that included Russian president Vladimir Putin and Abraham Lincoln.

Individuals with letter Xs on both hands are the strongest characters and their destiny is constantly the finest which never ever requires preparation. While some people might prepare for success all the time, people with “double X” palm do not require any method to flourish.

Which is faster – a Nissan GTR or a Woman?

Nissan GTR vs A Woman
Now this is something really awesome. Jeremy formally from British Top Gear, had come up with this crazy and original idea to organize a `drag challenge` between the world`s fastest road car, Nissan Skyline GTR and one of the fastest female athletes in the world, the Australian 100 meters champion, Michelle Jenneke.

I`m sure that the great Nissan GTR does not need much of introduction, except the raw facts that it is equipped with an engine that generates 485 HP, has four wheel drive, has perfect launch control and is one of the fastest road cars in the world.

And its opponent is Michelle Jenneke. For those of you who don`t know much about sports, except cars, this athlete is Australian 100 meters hurdles women`s champion, who actually became famous for her warm up routine before each race – her dancing moves.

So, according to Jeremy, the most important question in Motorsport – which is faster? A Nissan GTR or a woman?

Let’s say that you run a railroad. If there’s a heavy snowstorm one night, you might want to have people run snowblowers down the track in your stations before the trains start running.

Here’s a free piece of advice should you ever find yourself waiting for the first train to roll into a station after a heavy snowfall: Stand as far away from the tracks as possible, assuming you don’t want to get blasted with a massive sh*tstorm of snow.

Why this Amtrak commuter train came barreling into the station so fast after a winter snowstorm is unknown, but it seems like an especially unsafe thing to do with passengers waiting on the platform. Thankfully, one of those passengers was Nick Colvin who filmed the whole thing in slow motion, at least until he found himself also buried in snow.

The Philadelphia Experiment

Almost everyone has heard of the Philadelphia Experiment, although the number of people who actually have any idea as to what it was all about are nowhere near as numerous. The Experiment seems to fall into the same realm as the Kennedy Assassination; clouded by rumor and supposition, the exact truth of either incident will probably never be known. Both events are also plagued by a mass of incorrect or inaccurate information. Conspiracy buffs are more than happy to create wild, intricate plots involving virtually anyone and everyone on the planet (and in the case of the Philadelphia Experiment, off the planet).


THE FACTS AS WE KNOW THEM

On August 12, 1943 (or October 28, 1943 – accounts differ) the US Navy conducted a test of some sort on the USS Eldridge (DE [Destroyer Escort] 173) at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. The exact nature of this test is open to speculation. Possible tests include experiments in magnetic invisibility, radar invisibility, optical invisibility or degaussing (rendering the ship immune to magnetic mines). The test (or tests) were conducted, only to produce undesirable results. Afterwards, the project (supposedly called ‘Project Rainbow‘) was canceled.

As one can easily see, the actual facts are scanty. The Navy denies that any sort of experiment ever took place, and the ship’s logs show that the USS Eldridge was nowhere near Philadelphia at the time the test was supposed to take place. Of course, logs can be faked, and the government and military has lied before about certain events in the interests of secrecy and national security (witness the Manhattan Project). On the other hand, research has shown no evidence of a “Project Rainbow“, although there was a code name “Rainbow“; it was used to designate the Allied plans to combat the Axis in World War II and had nothing to do with any form of experimental technology. As a final note, it should be pointed out that even some basic research (the World Wide Web is loaded with relevant sites) will show that the entire ‘experiment’ may in fact be a massive hoax, a modern urban legend that has grown to fantastic proportions over time. Such sensationalistic writing has been successful in creating such similar epic myths before, with the “Bermuda Triangle” a prime example.

THE SUPPOSED ‘TRUE STORY’ OF

THE PHILADELPHIA EXPERIMENT

According to certain accounts, the actual results of the experiment involve occurrences far stranger than anyone could possibly imagine. The tests being conducted were an attempt to render a ship invisible to enemy radar. This was to be accomplished by wrapping an electromagnetic ‘bottle’ around the ship in question, absorbing or deflecting radar waves. The bottle was created by two (or four – accounts differ) massive Tesla coils which acted as electromagnetic generators; one was mounted forward and one was mounted aft. Other accounts state that a series of magnetic generators, called degaussers, were used. When activated, the electromagnetic field would extend out from the ship and divert radar waves around the ship, making the Eldridge invisible to radar receivers.

When the actual test was put into motion, a number of unexpected and bizarre side effects occurred. As the electromagnetic field increased in strength, it began to extend as far as 100 yards out from the ship in all directions, forming a large sphere. Within this field, the ship became fuzzy and indistinct, and a greenish haze formed around the vessel, obscuring it from view. Eventually, the only visible object was the outline of the hull of the Eldridge where it entered the water. Then, to the amazement of onlookers, the entire ship vanished from view.

It was at this point (the vanishing of the Eldridge) that the true power of the electromagnetic field that had been created was revealed. The Eldridge had not only vanished from the view of observers in Philadelphia, it had vanished from Philadelphia all together! The ship had been instantly transported several hundred miles – from Philadelphia to Norfolk, Virginia. After a few minutes, the ship once again vanished, to return to Philadelphia.

To the Navy, the test had succeeded beyond their wildest dreams. Not only had they rendered a ship invisible to radar, they had made it optically invisible as well, not to mention causing the vessel to teleport hundreds of miles in a matter of minutes. For the crew, however, the trip had been a nightmare.

The test had managed to render the entire ship ‘out of phase’ with the surrounding universe, which is why it was able to travel from Philadelphia to Norfolk instantly. This phasing effect had drastic effects on the crew members. During the experiment, crew members found they could walk through solid objects, and when the field was shut off, men were found embedded in the bulkheads, decks and railings of the ship. The results were gruesome enough that some men went mad. Afterwards, several crew members simply vanished. A few disappeared into thin air; one, eating dinner with his family, rose, walked through a wall and was never seen again. Some men entered into what was called the ‘Freeze’. This is where a man faded from view; unable to move, speak or otherwise affect his surroundings. Initially, the Freeze effect lasted only a few minutes to a few hours. Interestingly enough, invisible crewmen were still visible to other sailors who had survived the original experiment. After a while, the Freeze effect lasted for days or months, and became known as the ‘Deep Freeze‘ (other terms include ‘Caught in the Flow’, ‘Caught in the Push’, ‘Get Stuck’, ‘Go Blank’, ‘Hell Incorporated’ or ‘Stuck in Molasses’). The Deep Freeze could drive a man insane in very short order, and was only able to be counteracted if other crewmen performed a ‘Laying on of Hands’ technique to give the victim strength and allow him to recover from his affliction. Unfortunately, two men burst into flames while Laying on of Hands, burning for 18 days despite all attempts to quench the fire.

Seeing the horrible after effects of the experiment, the Navy discontinued all further research into radar and optical invisibility. The surviving crewmen were discharged as mentally unfit for duty and many were placed in insane asylums. However, science was not quite done conducting research on electromagnetic fields or radar and its affects on the human mind. Project Rainbow may have been disbanded, but the Phoenix Project was just getting started.

932 ‘Lunch Atop a Skyscraper’ Photo

29 Sep 1932 — Construction workers eat their lunches atop a steel beam 800 feet above ground, at the building site of the RCA Building in Rockefeller Center. — Image by © Bettmann/CORBIS

We don’t know their names, nor the photographer who immortalized them, but these men lunching 800 feet up show the daredevil spirit behind Manhattan’s vertical expansion.

In a fascinating episode of the wonderful Time series “100 Photos“, the voice of Rockefeller Center archivist Christine Roussel shares the history of the incredibly famous 1932 photo entitled “Lunch Atop a Skyscraper“, featuring brave, but unknown men eating 800 feet off the ground.

The question of the names of all these men comes up frequently who are these men because on the back of the photograph they’re not identified. …I think it’s kind of sad that they’re not recognized because everybody else gets the credit and yet the people who actually have built the building are forgotten. The fact that they are immortalized in this picture and they are the guys who risked their lives building this building. I think that what’s important about the picture is that it places them in history as being important in the development of New York City and Rockefeller Center.
