Alien Enthusiasts Think They've Found A Crashed UFO On Google Earth

When Reddit a user posted a video showing a 200 foot long object that had skidded in the snow for over 3000 feet, it wasn't long before believers in aliens confirmed that it is a UFO crash site. Although experts say that the supposed UFO is actually a chunk of ice that fell from an avalanche, it's impossible to know what the truth really is. You'll have to make your own decision about it.

Call off the search party, we might have found her. 

That's right, scientists believe that they may have found the body of Amelia Earhart, the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic ocean and the woman at the heart of one of aviation's greatest mysteries. Missing for nearly 80 years, Earhart has long been thought to have died in a plane crash in 1937, but new evidence has revealed that she may have landed safetly and died as a castaway on the island of Kiribati.

The development in the case came when re-analyzed a partial skeleton found on the Kiribati in 1940. While these bones had been ruled out in the 40s, scientists now say that these bones were “consistent with a female of Earhart’s height and ethnic origin.” More recently, anthropologist Richard Jantz noticed that the skeleton's forearms were larger than average. Of course, without Earhart around to measure, determining the size of the pilot's forearms would be difficult. 

Analysists at TIGHAR (The International Group for Historic Aircraft Recovery) used photograpic analysis to determine the size of Earhart's forearms. What'd they discover? The estimated size of Earhart's forearms and the size of the skeleton's were nearly identical. 

Case closed? Well, not exactly. It doesn't definitively prove what happened to Earhart, but it's definitely something.

Two things that really got me going here: One, it's almost like he thought by showing the police he was playing Pokémon GO! that he thought it'd be all chill after. Second, I'm pretty sure he was still trying to catch whatever it was that got him in the accident, after being confronted by the cops for CRASHING into a cop car! Sheesh, man. Come on.

The driver of this truck overcorrected after slightly hitting the other side of the bridge railing. This scary video shows the dashboard view and later inside the truck as it punches through the concrete barrier and lands in a park below.

Thankfully, no one was hurt. The park was unoccupied at the time and the driver, who was ejected from the truck, managed to survive after a few weeks of intensive care.

Dumb Luck of The Day: Man Saved From Ohio Plane Crashed Because he Left to go Buy Hot Pockets

It's not every day that your life is saved by delicious, steamy pockets of junk food.

But that is exactly what happened to one Ohio man who's craving for a Hot Pocket sent him out of his apartment and away from an airplane crash that killed nine people.

Jason Bartley's apartment building burst into flames Tuesday when a twin-engine charter plane crashed into it. He would have normally been home at the time, but he had left to the store to buy some Hot Pockets.

"Really, I guess it was dumb luck," Bartley told NBC News.

Others nearby were lucky as well.

A teen who lived in the same apartment complex as the crash inadvertently captured the sound of the crash while she was filming a Snapchat video.

She lived in one of two apartment buildings at the complex that were not affected.

A GoFundMe has been set up for Bartley who only has his car and the clothes he was wearing at the time.

No one was in the 4-unit building at the time of the crash.

A fiery airplane crash in Ohio that killed all nine passengers on board was captured by one teen who just happened to be on Snapchat at the same time.

Paige McVeigh was in her Akron apartment when she captured and tweeted her reaction to the plane crash, which happened in another part of the complex she lives in.

The teen can be seen hearing a loud noise, looking toward a bright light and yelling "Oh my God!" before the video ends.

WJW reports that the small airplane crashed about two miles away from Akron Fulton International Airport.

All nine people on board, two pilots and seven passengers, died on impact. No one was in the portion of the apartment building that was hit at the time of the crash.

Don't ever split a cab with this guy.

Get it?????????????????

Local Florida news channel WFLA says a 20-year-old suffered 'non life-threatening' injuries when he destroyed a car in just about the most complete way possible.

Winter Haven Police say the crash happened Tuesday just before 7 p.m. when Carlos Pino, 20, was traveling westbound along Cypress Gardens Blvd. At the curve near Interlochen Blvd., police say Pino lost control of his silver 1986 Nissan 300ZX and started to slide on the wet roadways as he negotiated the curve.

Pino overcorrected losing control of the vehicle and he started to skid sideways. Ultimately, the vehicle left the roadway striking a tree with the driver's side front wheel and quarter panel. The impact of the crash caused the vehicle to split in two with the front engine compartment on one side of the tree and the vehicle's cab with Pino buckled in coming to a rest on the opposite side of the tree. There were no other vehicles involved in the crash.



I mean, just look at this nonsense.







I feel like I have life-threatening injuries just looking at these pictures.

We have a word of warning for Mr. Pino:

Don't trust anyone who calls themselves 'Mr. Glass'.

Wild Ride of the Day: Black Monday Really Messed with the Internet's (and the Economy's) Emotions



While you were dusting off your top hat and cleaning your monocle for the start of this Monday morning, you may have noticed something was off with the stock market.

For starters, the economy tanked hard, dropping 1,000 points in seconds after opening.

That's real bad.

Also, One Direction split up.

You can't really see what happens, but you know it's heroic.

That's State Trooper Eric Devers, who leaps over a guardrail to save a truck driver that had crashed off the highway in Miami County, Ohio. According to the video's description:



An officer with the Ohio State Highway Patrol was honored this week for saving a semi-truck driver's life back in April. Dashcam footage just released shows trooper Eric Devers arrive at the scene of a crash and immediately sprint toward the driver. The trooper found the man still belted into his seat. Shortly after, his eyes rolled back into his head and he stopped breathing, the Ohio State Highway Patrol said.



The truck driver apparently had an atrial fibrillation, which is a quivering or irregular heartbeat that caused him to pass out while driving.

And hey! How cool is CPR? You should learn it yourself and become a hero like that guy there.

Certification and education classes are totally available near you.

It only takes a few hours, go ahead and do it.

FOX News reunited the two men during an emotional television segment.



We'll even forgive Devers for saying a pretty worn cliché.

You can pretty much say anything you want while you're saving someone's life.

Wait for it… the singing isn’t the only thing that blows.

Four friends were having the time of their lives on a little road trip singing Player’s “Baby Come Back,” when one of the tires exploded ruining everything.

Fortunately no one was hurt, but they appear to be a bit shaken up by the incident.

And despite the selfie stick disaster causing the camera to spiral out of control, they still managed to get their 15 minutes of fame on YouTube.

Phew!

“We’re not posting that video,” one of the girls says at the end.

Famous last words.

An idiot spectator thought it would be fun to jump into the 2015 Giro d’Italia bike race on Sunday, and he ended up causing a huge pile-up.

In the clip, the camera shows a man riding from the sidewalk into the street, but then it pans away right as the collision takes place. What we see is the aftermath, which was later confirmed as his fault by riders who were affected by the debacle.

“If I get hold of the d*ckhead that had the brilliant idea of diving into the peloton on a fixed bike with 10km to go, causing us to crash…” tweeted Eugenio Alafaci from Trek Factory Racing.

He also complained about the collision on his Facebook page.

At least one rider quit following the crash, and others suffered minor injuries, according to Nine MSN.

We’ve seen a number of other bizarre crashes over the past few months in European races.

At Belgium’s Tour of Flanders, two competitors were knocked down by support cars, and a spectator appeared to stick his arm out knocking down a racer at the Molecaten Drentse 8 in the Netherlands.

Cyclist Silas Patlove was riding towards Sausalito in California last week, when a deer jumped over the guardrail knocking him to the ground.

The entire thing was captured on video through his onboard Fly6 camera, which he uploaded to YouTube.

He says he suffered only minor injuries thanks to his helmet.

"Although I had a mild concussion with a bit of memory loss around the event, I am very grateful to have escaped feeling only a little banged up," he wrote. "I cannot speak to the deer's injuries."

I guess you could call this Car-ma?

A woman in Kansas City drove a stolen SUV into a building last week while being chased by police.

Not only did she crash, but she also took most of the building down with her.

She survived the incident, and the building was vacant so no one else was hurt.

This is the stuff of nightmares, especially if you're already scared of flying.

An Air Canada flight was forced to make a crash landing on Thursday, when one of its tires burst soon after take-off from Calgary.

But as the plane went down, the landing gear collapsed, and its propeller broke off, slicing into the plane and hitting passenger Christina Kurylo in the head.

Fortunately, no one died, and there were only minor injuries.

"I'm really lucky. It could have been a million times worse," said Christina Kurylo. "I could have died, you know, you never know what could have happened."

Kurylo was one of 5 employees from an Alberta-based radio station that were all on board when the incident occurred. And they seem to be taking it all in stride.

This happened at a busy intersection in the heart of Warsaw. There was a miscommunication by train operators resulting in pretty much the least exciting collision possible.
