A California man has filed a MUFON report, describing some rather bizarre events which occurred on October 5, 2009.
The individual, who remains anonymous, said he was at home in the evening watching television station KOCE, a local station in Huntington Beach, California. Suddenly the image on the screen switched from standard programming to an image of Hitler, with his arm up, giving a speech.
A bit shocked, the man reports he changed to another station, and then turned it back. The picture of Hitler was still there, and was now accompanied by a clicking sound. According to the man, there were still news headlines moving at the bottom of the screen.
The man claims the Hitler image remained on the screen, without moving, for approximately a half hour, and he took a picture of it. He said the he has contacted station KOCE and was still waiting for a response
The man called the incident “pretty trippy,” saying that a picture of Hitler was one of the first images to be broadcast into space when that technology became available. He thinks this event may have been a communication attempt.

There’s something lurking in the depths of Loch Ness, Scotland and it has nothing to do with monsters.
On a recent expedition to try and find evidence of the Loch Ness monster, U.S. research teams came across something quite unexpected — not a prehistoric creature of the deep but thousands of plastic covered golf balls.
Mike O’Brien of SeaTrepid explains: “At first we thought they were mushrooms, there were so many. But when we lowered the camera, we were surprised to see that they were in fact golf balls.”
The smattering of balls were found roughly 300 yards from the beach and 100 yards from the shore where it is thought locals and visitors have been using the loch to practice their driving skills for quite some time.

How little you gain
By getting excited and vexed.

And always in time for the next.

It hopes that the weight saved will lead to a five-tonne reduction in carbon emissions over the course of a month, reports the Daily Telegraph.
