It must be true…
I read it in the tabloids
Residents of an Ohio town were horrified when bright pink water the color of cotton candy came out of their taps and toilets. Authorities in Coal Grove attributed the phenomenon to a malfunctioning water treatment pump, which released more than 10 times the usual amount of a chemical used to remove iron from the water supply. Officials said the water was safe to drink, but could stain laundry. “I’d drink the pool water before I drink this,” said resident Dora McClellan.
A swarm of migrating ladybugs flying over Southern California was so enormous, it showed up on the National Weather Service radar as a large storm. The ladybug “bloom” was flying at heights between 5,000 and 9,000 feet and spread over about 640 square miles. A spotter told the weather service, “I don’t think they’re dense like a cloud,” but more like “little specks flying by.” The weather service notified followers on Twitter that the big blob on radar images “is not precipitation, but actually a cloud of ladybugs.”
The FBI has finally revealed that a suspected Bigfoot hair sample that was mailed to its forensic lab in 1976 was actually from a deer. Bigfoot hunter Peter Byrne mailed the sample after he personally had “a credible sighting” of Sasquatch lumbering through trees in the Pacific Northwest. On Feb. 24, 1977, an FBI analyst mailed Byrne a reply. But it never reached him—and Byrne assumed the sample had gone untested, until the FBI released its Bigfoot files last week, the letter included. “We’re just finding this out,” said Byrne, now 93 and still a believer. “It’s disappointing.” ■
