Hitler on TV?

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.

Later that same evening he claims to have seen a UFO.

Multi-storey graveyards

in Japan, a crowded mountainous country with a fast-ageing society, there is a shortage of final resting places, especially in the big cities.

Burial plots in Tokyo can cost more than $100,000 (£63,318), so some are turning to a cheaper hi-tech solution – multi-storey graveyards.

Attn. German train mooner: You’re doing it wrong.

A German man mooning at railway staff in a departing train got his trousers caught in a carriage door and ended up being dragged half naked along the platform, out of the station and onto the tracks.

The 22-year-old journalism student shoved his backside against the window of a low-slung double-decker train when staff forced him off in Lauenbrueck for travelling without a ticket, a spokesman for police in the northern city of Bremen said.

“It’s a miracle he wasn’t badly hurt,” the spokesman said on Monday. “This sort of thing can end up killing you.”
