A US company that has developed an “electronic backpack” that fits onto a cockroach allowing its movements to be controlled by a mobile phone app.
The Backyard Brains company says that the device is intended to get children to be interested in neuroscience.
For the “electronic backpack” to work the cockroaches have to be placed in icy water to subdue them before sandpaper is used to remove the waxy coating on the shell of the insect’s head.
An electrode connector and electrodes are then glued on to the insect’s body and a needle is used to poke a hole in their thorax in order to insert a wire.
Their antennae are then cut and electrodes are inserted. A circuit is attached to their backs, and signals are received through a mobile phone app allowing users to control the cockroaches’ movements to the left and to the right.
I can’t believe I missed this story – perhaps they have simply moved Bigfoot to another area – SNTB on the lookout!
They accuse authorities of a cover-up after reports of military helicopters swooping – possibly to remove the body
The existence of the legendary Bigfoot is one of the world’s greatest unsolved mysteries, but even after his reported death, he remains an enigma.
Amid rumours a turkey hunter had shot and killed the 10ft beast, a resident in rural Pennsylvania called 911 and claimed he had evidence the sasquatch was real after finding a huge footprint near his home.
Now hundreds of conspiracy theorists have accused authorities of a cover-up after reports of military helicopters swooping on the area – possibly to remove the Bigfoot’s body – and the fact local police dismissed the footprint as a bear’s.
Thomas Rogers, who has followed reports of Bigfoot for 24 years, said: “This stinks to high heaven.
“They clearly know something but they are keeping us in the dark. With all sightings we have to take them seriously and this is no different.
“Sadly for us though, until a body is found, the question of whether Bigfoot exists or not is still a mystery.”
The rumour mill started on May 14, when police took an emergency call from John Winesickle – the resident who found the footprint, in Paint Township, Somerset County.
A 911 operator tipped off local officers who agreed to investigate.
Within hours, Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society received an email from an enthusiast who said he had overheard chatter on a police scanner after an unidentified hunter claimed to have shot a Bigfoot.
The message read: “Officers confirmed there was an unidentified animal shot and killed. Details are a bit fuzzy at this time.”
Just 40 minutes later, the society received an even more bizarre email.
It read: “Hello, YES, this is legit, a strange report came over the scanner here in Somerset, PA, just a few miles from Flight 93 memorial.”
The message also told of how a follower monitoring a scanner heard police joking about the shooting claim.
It said: “It was about 20 minutes later that he said he heard a police officer radio back and state, ‘There was a body’.
“He said the next radio transmission to the officer was, ‘Call the centre’.”
The email also mentions a “large helicopter” in the area.
It added: “The sound was so loud it shook his house, so he went outside to take a look.
“It was then that he observed a formation of four Army Apache helicopters moving in the direction of Somerset.”
The official police log tells how officer Christopher Swartz inspected the footprints found by John Winesickle.
He concluded they belonged to a bear.
Officer Swartz wrote” “I advised John this. He was not happy with the answer.
“He said he could definitely tell the difference between a bear footprint and a Bigfoot footprint. I decided not to argue.”
Last night John hit back. He fumed: “No, no, no. A bear can’t go down a steep bank on all twos. That’s proven this is a Bigfoot.”
Previous witnesses have described the beast as having large eyes, a pronounced brow, low-set forehead and a crested gorilla-type crown.
He is commonly reported to have a bad smell and feet up to two foot long.
So Thatcher didn’t expect the Argentines to invade the Falklands – well just what the fuck was she doing, British Intelligence suggested it would happen back in 1977! Too busy planning to destroy the working classes and ruin all industry within our own country to notice.
And why the fuck would anyone pay £2k to have Mark Thatcher found – obvioulsy only four hours sleep affected her judgement with that one – especially when the country was going to rack and ruin, riots springing up everyone.
Did the war swing the election, I have no doubt about it – only things you want people to read get documented.
As I have always siad I wanted to do with this blog is simply to bring people’s attention to certain things in the media and the way it is written ‘ read / presented that may shape the future as we know it.
The one thing that have come to my attention today is yet another shark attack, this time in South Africa – the frequency of shark attacks appears to be increasing (or the reporting of it). Is it because the oceons are becomming more depleted of their natural food chain, or is there an air of revolution that has even begun to permeate the natural world (it’s normally rich cunts that can afford to go diving and holidaying in exotic places). I bet know you have read this you will suddenly begin to notice the increased frequency of attacks.
I do love a good conspiracy theories and believe most of them (yes I do believe they didn’t set foot on the moon when they say they did). Disinformation has become a regular method employed by all governments, and stories that may be significant are hidden away, in order to maitain the staus quo. The key is always to not listen to what is being reported but how it is being reported and any underlying reasons to why.
