Strange Cases of Spontaneous Human Combustion

Posted By Staff

Date: August 22nd, 2015

shcFrom Strange Facts – Spontaneous human combustion is the alleged burning of a person’s body without a readily apparent, identifiable external source of ignition. The combustion may result in simple burns and blisters to the skin, smoking, or a complete incineration of the body. The latter is the form most often recognized as SHC.

Over the past 300 years, there have been more than 200 reports of persons burning to a crisp for no apparent reason.

Recent cases:
In 1951, the Mary Reeser case recaptured the public interest in Spontaneous Human Combustion. Mrs. Reeser, 67, was found in her apartment on the morning of July 2, 1951, reduced to a pile of ashes, a skull, and a completely undamaged left foot.  More

The curse of the Omen

Posted By Staff

Date: August 21st, 2015

omenFrom Strange Facts – In June 1975, just two months before filming of the movie was due to begin, Gregory Peck’s son had killed himself with a bullet to the head.

The actor set off for London in September in a somber mood which wasn’t much soothed when his plane was hit by lightning high above the Atlantic.

A few weeks later, executive producer Mace Neufeld also left Los Angeles. You think lightning doesn’t strike twice? It does in this story. “It was the roughest five minutes I’ve ever had on an airliner,” says Neufeld. The curse of The Omen had begun.

There was much more to come.  More

Sogen Kato’s mummified corpse was found in his bedroom

Posted By Staff

Date: August 20th, 2015

katoFrom Strange Facts: Sogen Kato was thought to have been Tokyo’s oldest man until July 2010, when his mummified corpse was found in his bedroom.

It was concluded he had likely died in November 1978, aged 79, and his family had never announced his death in an attempt to preserve his oldest man record.

Relatives had rebuffed attempts by ward officials to see Kato in preparations for Respect for the Aged Day later that year, citing various reasons from him being a “human vegetable” to becoming a Sokushinbutsu (practice of observing austerity to the point of death and mummification.)

The cause of death was not determined due to the state of Kato’s body.  More

Posted By Staff

Date: August 19th, 2015

dillingerFrom Strange Facts: The question of whether infamous bank robber John Dillinger was gunned down upon leaving a movie theater in Chicago is still debated today. Did John Dillinger really die on July 22nd, 1934?

Looking back, Dillinger started his troubled life in an unassuming part of Indianapolis. As a teenager he frequently got into fights, bullied younger children, and began honing his skills at taking things that belonged to others.

One story has him stealing coal from incoming trains and selling it to local residents and merchants.

Then began his unparalleled career as an expert bank robber. His well-planned robberies netted cash ranging from $3,500 to $74,000. He also stole and stockpiled guns for use in his criminal exploits.  More

John Wayne died from cancer because of where the movie, The Conqueror, was filmed

Posted By Staff

Date: August 18th, 2015

The ConquerorFrom Strange Facts: The Conqueror is a 1956 CinemaScope epic film produced by Howard Hughes and starring John Wayne as the Mongol conqueror Genghis Khan.

Other performers included Susan Hayward, Agnes Moorehead, and Pedro Armendáriz. Directed by actor/director Dick Powell, the film was principally shot near St. George, Utah.

The exterior scenes were shot on location near St. George, Utah, 137 miles downwind of the United States government’s Nevada National Security Site.

In 1953, extensive above-ground nuclear weapons testing (11 total) occurred at the test site as part of Operation Upshot-Knothole.

The cast and crew spent many difficult weeks on location, and in addition Hughes later shipped 60 tons of dirt back to Hollywood in order to match the Utah terrain and lend verisimilitude to studio re-shoots.

The filmmakers knew about the nuclear tests but the federal government reassured residents that the tests caused no hazard to public health.  More

NapoleonNapoleon Bonaparte, the 19th century French military leader who seized power in France, conquered much of Europe and crowned himself emperor, was once attacked and defeated by a horde rabbits while hunting.

All those rabbits, which should have scattering themselves to escape being shot, suddenly faced about, and in an instant the whole bunch flung itself upon Napoleon.  More

Posted By Staff

Date: June 6th, 2015

hoffaOne of the most famous American figures to inexplicably disappear was Jimmy Hoffa, the famed president of the Teamsters Union from 1957 until he went to prison in 1967.

On July 30, 1975, Hoffa went to the Red Fox Restaurant outside of Detroit to allegedly meet three men, a Detroit labor leader, an important local mobster and a powerful figure in New Jersey Teamster politics.

Hoffa arrived first, around 2:00 in the afternoon, but after waiting nearly 30 minutes, none of the others had arrived. Annoyed, he called his wife and told her that he was going to wait for a few more minutes before giving up. This was the last time that she ever spoke with her husband.

At 2:45, Hoffa was seen getting into a car in the restaurant parking lot with several other men.   More

Vladimir Lenin’s Mummy

Posted By Staff

Date: June 2nd, 2015

leninThis alive looking mummy is Vladimir Lenin (1870 – 1924) – the father of Russian Communism and the first leader of the Soviet Union.

The government decided to preserve the body of Lenin for future generations.

As no attempts to mummify a body for generations had ever been attempted before, the Russians had to invent a highly complex process of embalming.

Lenin’s body requires extensive chemical baths, injections and evaluation. The body’s organs were removed and replaced with a humidifier and pumping system, designed to maintain the body’s core temperature and fluid intake.  Continued at Nutty Facts

President Jimmy Carter Saw A UFO

Posted By Staff

Date: June 1st, 2015

carterOne evening in 1969, two years before he became governor of Georgia, Carter was preparing to give a speech at a Lions Club meeting.

At about 7:15 p.m (EST), one of the guests called his attention to a strange object that was visible about 30 degrees above the horizon to the west of where he was standing.

Carter described the object as being bright white and as being about as bright as the moon. It was said to have appeared to have closed in on where he was standing but to have stopped beyond a stand of pine trees some distance from him.

The object is then said to have changed color, first to blue, then to red, then back to white, before appearing to recede into the distance.  Continued at Nutty Facts

Serpent handler preacher killed by snakebite

Posted By Staff

Date: May 31st, 2015

jamieIn February 2014, Jamie Coots died after refusing to be treated, Middlesboro, Tennessee, police said.

On “Snake Salvation,” the ardent Pentecostal believer said that he believed that a passage in the Bible suggests poisonous snakebites will not harm believers as long as they are anointed by God.

The practice is illegal in most states, but still goes on, primarily in the rural South.

Coots was a third-generation “serpent handler” and aspired to one day pass the practice and his church, Full Gospel Tabernacle in Jesus Name, on to his adult son, Little Cody.  Continued at Nutty Facts (with video)
