    ...If you taking about the "Inquisition"...then I wouldn't see the comparison between the two issues, anyway, I've probably said all I can really say about it on this site me thinks!?...:rolleyes:

    (P.S....if you care to...check out the actual name of Darwin's so called "Masterpiece" it may surprise you....you should see why it was hidden, and the shortened version was pronounced to all!)

    ...Today in Strangeness: June 21rst...

    Happy Summer Solstice in the Northern Hemisphere, where June 21st marks the longest day of the year!
    Revelers mark the occasion at Stonehenge where the monument is said to align with the sunrise.
    On this day in 2006, Pluto's newly discovered moons were officially named Nix and Hydra.

    Massive Cache of Nazi Relics Found in Argentina: :eek:

    Authorities in Argentina have recovered an enormous trove of Nazi artifacts that had been hidden
    in a secret room of a suburban Buenos Aires home. Believed to be the largest such collection ever
    found in the country, the 75 creepy pieces of 'memorabilia' are thought to have come from high-ranking
    members of the Third Reich. Included in the unsettling collection are several busts and statues of Hitler
    as well as a vast array of items such as wooden boxes and swords emblazoned with Nazi emblems.

    Non of those are what I call football but then again the NFL and AFL at the time they merged were hardly the same game that we know as NFL football today. The USFL and XFL were just horrible and the AAFL and WLAF are basically a different sport all together although the WLAF is watchable. The closest thing to the NFL today is the CFL but even it has several differences that just makes it unenjoyable. As a rule... anything with the word "Canadian" attached to it is just a pretender of something American.

    ...I believe it would have showed just a tad of "Consideration" for at least one of the "Upper Echelon" members to inform me as to "Why" the "Power of the Likes" has been taken away from this topic!...even if only to "Alert: me afterwards...Thanks for nothing!...

    On this date in 1969, Ohio's Cuyahoga River literally caught on fire. While the river had been
    aflame numerous times before, it was this incident which brought the attention of the national media,
    most notably TIME magazine, and cast an embarrassing spotlight on the rampant pollution in the area.

    New Earhart Expedition to Use Forensic Dogs:

    A new expedition to an island in the South Pacific aims to finally solve the mystery of Amelia Earhart's
    disappearance by using forensic dogs. The famed aviatrix and her navigator, Fred Noonan, went missing during
    an attempt to fly around the world in July of 1937 and their uncertain fate has vexed historians and researchers
    ever since. However an impending project, set to launch later this week, could produce a breakthrough in the
    eighty-year-old case by way of bone-sniffing dogs set loose on an island in the Pacific.

    Linked to the Summer Solstice, the celebration of Midsummer's Eve, the night leading into June 24th,
    is celebrated in many parts of the world. In the tradition of ancient times, bonfires are lit in
    countries as Denmark and Finland. On this day in 1951, a 200-mile stretch of Kansas was hit by one of
    the most expensive hailstorms in U.S. history, with over $15 million in crops & property damage.

    Deformed Sheep Sparks Panic in South Africa:


    Residents of a village in South Africa have been gripped with fear following the birth of a monstrous-looking
    sheep that appeared to be almost human. Panic took over the town of Lady Frere when photos of the mutated stillborn
    lamb spread throughout the community and some of the village elders declared that it had been "sent by the Devil."
    Subsequent suspicions of witchcraft at work in the village or an unholy union between man and beast spawned considerable
    concerns from members of the village.

    Today in Strangeness: June 26th...

    Saturday marks the 70th anniversary of Kenneth Arnold's seminal UFO sighting which is
    credited as start of the modern UFO era and spawned the term 'flying saucer.' Occurring
    just days before the infamous Roswell incident, the Arnold event took place on June 24th, 1947,
    when the private pilot was flying past Mount Rainier in Washington state and purportedly spotted
    a veritable armada of nine UFOs soaring past his plane. Little did Arnold know that his experience
    would soon produce worldwide headlines and still have a profound impact on the world seven decades later.

    World's Ugliest Dog for 2017 is Crowned

    A Neapolitan Mastiff named Martha bested thirteen other competitors on Saturday to take home the title of
    'World's Ugliest Dog' for 2017. The three-year-old canine, who boasts an inordinate amount of skin on her face and a
    propensity for excessive drooling, captured the title at the 29th annual installment of the competition held in Petaluma, California.

    The gothic soap opera Dark Shadows premiered on this day in 1966 on ABC.
    One of the most beloved characters from the cult TV show, 175-year-old vampire
    Barnabas Collins, was added ten months into the series run in an effort to
    boost low ratings.

    FBI Joins the Hunt for TX 'Bigfoot':


    The Texas city claiming to have Bigfoot lurking in its parks is allegedly getting some help
    in the search for the famed cryptid via the FBI, but perhaps they have taken the tale a bit
    too far.

    Round Rock, Texas made the headlines earlier this month when their Parks and Recreation Department
    posted photos of curious tracks which they suggested could have been from Bigfoot.
    A cursory examination of the story quickly revealed that it was really just the start of a campaign
    organized by the city to entice residents into using the parks this summer to 'look for Bigfoot.'
    Nonetheless, the ruse continued late last week when the city posted to their official website that
    the FBI had reached out to their chief of police to offer assistance in nabbing Bigfoot.
    In an email shared by the city, an FBI Special Agent tells the chief that the Bureau is very concerned
    with the Bigfoot reports and that they are nominating the creature for their Top 10 Most Wanted.
    The rather clever announcement included a 'Wanted' poster for Bigfoot that accuses the creature of
    numerous nefarious deeds and promises a whopping $500,000 for information directly leading to the capture
    of the creature.
    While one must applaud the ingenuity of whichever parks department employee came up with FBI angle to the story,
    it appears that the city might be having second thoughts about the latest twist to the campaign.
    Sometime after the news of the FBI involvement had been posted to the city's website on Friday, the page
    containing the information was removed, leaving only the message "that page can't be found."
