The Gory Gourmet Zombie Food Truck Celebrates ‘The Walking Dead’

leave a comment »

As any zombie would tell you (could they actually form sentences), brains are delicious. To celebrate the DVD release of “The Walking Dead Season 2″, a London zombie food truck has popped up to prove it.

The Gory Gourmet food truck comes to us from Street Kitchen chef and mastermind Mark Jankel. The menu is… well, decidedly offal-oriented. Its main course, the Big Brain Burger is made of English calf brains. Jankel told Oddity Central, “We soak it in vinegar and salt, powder and fried until golden crispy. I’m not sure whether it can help you be more intelligent or not but if you want a change for lunch, try this dish.”

Hungry for brains, but not in the mood for a burger? Here’s the rest of the menu:

Crispy Brain Dippers

Crispy chunks of brain with barbecue sauce

Brain Salad Wrap

Crispy chunks of brain with wild rocket and tarragon mayo

Feet and Thyroid Nuggets

Nuggets of pig’s feet and cow thyroid with herb mayo

Skewered Hearts

Grilled beef heart skewers with horseradish mayo

UFO Lying On The Bottom Of The Baltic Sea? – Space News – redOrbit

leave a comment »

A Swedish expedition team has found an unidentified object at the bottom of the Baltic Sea, leaving some to believe it’s the remnants of an extra-terrestrial ship.Scientists went off on a deep-water dive to debunk some theories about the underwater object, but were left with more questions than they had answers.The divers found that the object was raised about 10 to 13 feet above the seabed, and curved in at the sides.“First we thought this was only stone, but this is something else,” Ocean X team diver Peter Lindberg said in a press release.

The object had an egg shaped hole leading into it from the top, working like an opening. On top of the object, they found strange stone circle formations, which resembled small fireplaces. The stones were covered in something that resembled “soot.”“During my 20-year diving career, including 6000 dives, I have never seen anything like this. Normally stones don’t burn. I can’t explain what we saw, and I went down there to answer questions, but I came up with even more questions “, Stefan Hogeborn, one of the divers at Ocean X Team, said in the press release.Farther back from the object, the Ocean X team said that they could see a “runway” or a downhill path that is flattened at the seabed with the object at the end of it.“As laymen we can only speculate how this is made by nature, but this is the strangest thing I have ever experienced as a professional diver“, continues Peter Lindberg, one of the founder Ocean X Team.

Lungs found on L.A. sidewalk – Weird News – Canoe.ca

leave a comment »

Los Angeles police are investigating after a woman found what appeared to be a pair of lungs on a sidewalk.

Officials are unsure if the lungs are human or belonged to an animal, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

A woman made the discovery Sunday around 8:30 p.m. Police said the lungs were not attached to a body.

Further tests will determine the origin of the possible organs.

“We don’t know what they are,” Sgt. Robert Dean of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told the newspaper. “It’s really weird.”

The ‘Beast of Hackney Marshes’ mystery – pictures – Quirky London – London 24

leave a comment »

Terrified university student Helen Murray said she took the snaps while out for a stroll near dense woodland close to a path near the Old River Lea on bank holiday Monday earlier this month.She said she was stopped in her tracks by the unknown animal, which was larger than a person and covered in shaggy black fur.“I tried to stay calm as I wasn’t sure what kind of animal it was or if it was even alive,” she said. “I had my phone ready to call 999. Then the creature moved. Somehow I managed to take a couple of pictures before I ran.“I managed to get away but was scared half to death.”Ms Murray says she didn’t contact the police because she thought they wouldn’t believe her.A spokeswoman for Hackney police said there have been no other reports of sightings, while experts at London Zoo said the pictures were not clear enough for them to comment.

UFO Over France Analyzed and Enhanced Video | Gather

leave a comment »

A UFO caught on tape over France, showing several white orbs flying like no known aircraft, has been enhanced and analyzed. What is it?

The video, shot out a window overlooking an unidentified French city, catches at least five, silvery disk-shaped saucers several miles away on the horizon.As the videographer realizes he’s not looking at airplanes, he zooms in on the objects just enough to see they are not birds and not any kind of aircraft usually flying over a busy metropolitan city.

This exists. And it’s disgusting: The iPhone umbilical cord charger | ZAGGblog

leave a comment »

Well, here’s something disgusting. Japanese artist Mio I-zawa has created an iPhone charger to resemble an umbilical cord, of all things. The charger partially swallows the phone even, almost creating a “womb” of sorts for your iPhone to charge in. But that’s not all, folks. As if this thing weren’t already creepy to look at, it actually moves and pulsates as it provides power, or “life”, to the iPhone. I, uh…words escape me on this one, really.

The artist who created this charger seems to have a fascination with creating visual representations of internal organs such as an external heart, elastic cell, and mechanical tumor. However, his other pieces are not iPhone accessories or chargers. There does not seem to be any sort of indication that this unique umbilical cord charger is available for purchase anywhere, but if it was I’m sure there would be plenty of people with interesting taste in accessories flocking to get their hands on this baby (no pun intended…ok, maybe a little).

Anyway, check out this little video clip to see the umbilical cord charger in action:

Brazilian thieves put grease on train tracks to steal 50 tons of corn | Metro.co.uk

leave a comment »

Police reports state that the thieves greased the train track beforehand, causing the 54-wagon vehicle to slow down due to uneasy controls. The criminals then proceeded to use a tow truck to remove the containers of corn.The train was hijacked as it travelled through a rural area proximately 180 miles 300 kilometers north of Sao Paulo.Altogether the trains main cargo included 60 tonnes of both corn and sugar.It is yet to be confirmed whether the thieves intended to keep the corn for personal use or sell it on.The method of theft used by these criminals has been likened to the cowboy thieves of the mid-western era, who were responsible for robbing moving trains.

Why Is China Building These Gigantic Structures In the Middle of the Desert? (Update 2)

leave a comment »

This is crazy. New photos have appeared in Google Maps showing unidentified titanic structures in the middle of the Chinese desert. The first one is an intricate network of what appears to be huge metallic stripes. Is this a military experiment?

Update 2: readers are finding even more weird stuff.

They seem to be wide lines drawn with some white material. Or maybe the dust have been dug by machinery.


It’s located in Dunhuang, Jiuquan, Gansu, north of the Shule River, which crosses the Tibetan Plateau to the west into the Kumtag Desert. It covers an area approximately one mile long by more than 3,000 feet wide.

The tracks are perfectly executed, and they seem to be designed to be seen from orbit.

Perhaps it’s some kind of targeting or calibrating grid for Chinese spy satellites? Maybe it’s a QR code for aliens? Nobody really knows.
