These beautiful ruins deep in the Pennsylvania woods are thought to have been a ski lodge or a speakeasy, but no one really knows.
These beautiful ruins near Devil’s Hole Creek deep in the Pennsylvania woods are thought to have been a ski lodge or a speakeasy, but to this day, no one really knows what previously stood at this now crumbling site..
The mysterious ruins are located on Pennsylvania State Gamelands # 221 in Paradise Valley just outside the town of Cresco. There is much to explore, but the highlight is the very large double fireplaces that obviously warmed multiple floors of the former structure. There is also what appears to be a wood or coal furnace and what looks like a water boiler.
While it looks like the original structure was built and remodeled in different decades—there are remnants of stone, concrete and cinder blocks—it’s possible that it was all built at the same time as all these materials were available during the 1920s and 30s. Some locals believe the ruins was originally a speakeasy from the Prohibition era.
Whatever it was, it’s suspected that the building met its demise in the mid-1950s, either by a large fire or possibly a flood. One of the local legends is that there was a bottomless lake in the area and anyone who swam in it sank and went to Hell—hence the name “Devil’s Hole.” The lake is said to have disappeared after the large flood that hit the area in 1955.
Stenciled handprints and wall paintings dating back 10,000 years, some of the earliest forms of cave art.
Las Cueva de las Manos is tucked in the valley of the Pinturas River, in an isolated spot of the Argentine Patagonia, accessible via long gravel dirt roads. The trip can be rough, but is undoubtably worth it: It leads you to some of the earliest known forms of human art, dating back roughly 10,000 years.
The prehistoric artwork painted on the walls of this desert cave is not only ancient, but beautiful. There are three distinct styles to be seen, believed to have been created by different peoples at different time periods. But the highlight is what gives Las Cueva de las Manos, or “Cave of Hands,” its name: the hundreds of colorful handprints stencilled along the cave’s walls.
The hand paintings are dated to around 5,000 BC. It’s believed these cave dwellers stencilled their own hands using bone-made pipes to create the silhouettes. Most of the prints are of left hands, indicating that they probably held the spraying pipe in their right hands. The artists used different mineral pigments to make different colors—iron oxides for red and purple, kaolin for white, natrojarosite for yellow, and manganese oxide for black.
There are also hunting scenes and representations of animals and human life found in the cave, dating back even further than the stencilled hands, to around 7300 BC. The hunter-gatherers who lived in the caves at this time created art depicting the pursuit of prey, the most common of which was the guanaco, a type of llama. A favorite hunting tool was the bola, where interconnected cords with weights on either end were thrown to trap the legs of the animal. A third category of art was discovered, too, with paintings depicting animals and humans in a more stylized and minimalist fashion, done largely in red pigments.
Through all these varied forms of cave art, studied layer by layer, we get a peek into the lives of those who lived in the caves, thought to have last been inhabited by the ancestors of the Tehuelche people of the Patagonian desert. It was first explored by researchers in 1949, and more extensive studies were conducted in the 1960s. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1999.
A pastime for the paranoid who would refuse to believe they'd tied their own shoelaces unless they had photographic evidence and twelve witness testimonies. Because Youtube is now a super safe space where no bad words can be said we'll have to be careful how we phrase this particular entry. In 2013 NSA contractor Edward Snowden sent 41 Powerpoint slides to journalists at The Washington Post and The Guardian, and in doing so he proved one of the most shocking conspiracies of our generation to be 100% true.Intelligence agencies have been in the spotlight lately with the sacking of FBI Director James Comey and reports of a failed CIA plot to assassinate Kim Jong Un. In 1932 workers at the Johns Manville Company attempted to sue their employer after many of them contracted cancer and life-threatening respiratory diseases due to working with asbestos, which was the basis for many of Johns Manville's products. Throughout the 50's and 60's the CIA used their influence on the press to suppress their many illicit activities, and the most shocking of them all was MK ULTRA.

Humans have been trying to create technology to protect police officers and military personnel from gunfire since as early as 1538, when Filippo Negroli created the first bulletproof vest. The earliest vests were made of silk or iron, but this image shows a modern vest being tested in Washington, D.C. in September 1923
One Of The Best UFO Documentaries Of All Time (Enhanced) – Narrated By Rod Serling (Twilight Zone)
This is unquestionably the best copy of the film you can find. It is the original VHS to DVD version – then remastered video to improve quality and poor compression issues*
Extremely thorough and produced back when people with a serious scientific background were not so easily swayed by a media proclaiming that the entire scene is absurd. Back when there was much less of a backlash upon someone's character, were they to discuss or research such anomalies.
Hosted by legends Rod Serling and Burgess Meredith! This documentary has multiple interesting segments regarding UFO and Alien activity, including abduction tales from decades ago. (many think the abduction/missing time cases are a relatively new thing – they definitely are not)
This documentary also includes segments about crop circles and cattle mutilation – a truly wonderful UFO documentary.
I hesitate to use the word "classy" when talking about a documentary. However, I read a recent comment about this video that uses the term, and i think that's well put. Compared the the majority of UFO documentaries out there – this comes across with some real class/integrity.
Most People Don’t Know There’s A Fountain Of Youth Hiding In Oklahoma’s Woods
Did you know Oklahoma has a fountain of youth that’s been recognized for its “healing powers” since the 1800s? Nestled in the forested woods of Chickasaw National Recreation Area in Sulphur, Oklahoma flows a multitude of clear, cold sulphur springs that have therapeutic qualities. Here’s a look at Oklahoma’s Fountain of Youth that may (or may not) restore your youthfulness:
The Chickasaw National Recreation Area was established in 1902 and includes the Platt National Park and Arbuckle Recreation Area. The ancient Natives called the land "the peaceful valley of rippling waters" due to the abundance of water in the area. The strong-smelling mineral water led them to believe in the healing powers of the water…
The town of Sulphur grew in popularity because of these mineral springs, and with more than 30 springs in the park, it's an oasis that continues to draw in thousands of visitors every year…
The springs, streams, and lakes range from fresh water to sulphur water, and have always been a relaxing place for visitors to come and enjoy the peaceful waters. But many people believe there's something special about these springs… an energy in them that brings healing and youthfulness to all who drink from them…
One of these springs known for its healing properties is Pavilion Springs. Its healing waters have flowed before the park was ever established in 1902. In the late 1800s, people would visit this spring to gather its highly valued water. It even became so popular that they had to limit visitors to only a few gallons per day..
These springs are located in the Arbuckle Mountains – some of the oldest mountains in the U.S. – and out of them gushes these sacred waters. There has never been a bathhouse or resort built around these springs, like the one in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Early tribes didn't want to lose access to the healing waters, so when the land was sold to the U.S. government, the town of Sulphur had to relocate farther away..
Lost River Cave in Bowling Green, Kentucky is a seven-mile long river that flows mostly underground. The river begins outside of the cave and then disappears under an extensive cavern. The cave's extensive history dates back to over 10,000 years ago and many incredible artifacts have been discovered within the cave and the land surrounding it.
Before the river flows into the cave, there are a few sections that can be viewed from the surrounding woods. The most notable is the "blue hole" – a bright blue pool that is 16 feet deep. Today, the area on the edge of the cave and river is used as an event space and the starting location for tours. But this appealing spot was once used as a night club, from the 1930s until it closed its doors in 1962. Unfortunately, the river and the land around it then became a dumping site until 1997 when Lost River Cave was brought back to life by its new owners and a non-profit.
Lost River Cave can now be explored by boat tour, kayak or even on your hands and knees, crawling through the cave above the water. While on the boat tour, you have to duck down until the space opens up into a cathedral-like cavern.
It's equally as exciting to tour the river and cave by kayak. The water is calm and you'll get an up close look at this Kentucky phenomenon. The cave was once a hiding place for civil war soldiers, so if you look closely you may even see carvings in the walls, left by former inhabitants.
Kentucky's underground river is an unexpected adventure and one of the state's most unique geological features. Western Kentucky University, along with Friends of Lost River have worked hard to restore and preserve this piece of history to ensure visitors can continue to be amazed for years to come.

NADH stands for "nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) + hydrogen (H)." This chemical occurs naturally in the body and plays a role in the chemical process that generates energy. People use NADH supplements as medicine.
NADH is used for improving mental clarity, alertness, concentration, and memory; as well as for treating Alzheimer’s disease. Because of its role in energy production, NADH is also used for improving athletic endurance and treating chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS).
NADH produced by our bodies is involved in making energy in the body. While there is some evidence that suggests NADH supplements might reduce blood pressure, lower cholesterol, help chronic fatigue syndrome by providing energy, and increase nerve signals for people with Parkinson's disease, there isn't enough information to know for sure how or if these supplements work.
Exposure to Radon Causes Lung Cancer In Non-smokers and Smokers Alike
Lung cancer kills thousands of Americans every year. Smoking, radon, and secondhand smoke are the leading causes of lung cancer. Although lung cancer can be treated, the survival rate is one of the lowest for those with cancer. From the time of diagnosis, between 11 and 15 percent of those afflicted will live beyond five years, depending upon demographic factors. In many cases lung cancer can be prevented.
Smoking is the leading cause of lung cancer. Smoking causes an estimated 160,000* cancer deaths in the U.S. every year (American Cancer Society, 2004). And the rate among women is rising. On January 11, 1964, Dr. Luther L. Terry, then U.S. Surgeon General, issued the first warning on the link between smoking and lung cancer. Lung cancer now surpasses breast cancer as the number one cause of death among women. A smoker who is also exposed to radon has a much higher risk of lung cancer.
Radon is the number one cause of lung cancer among non-smokers, according to EPA estimates. Overall, radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon is responsible for about 21,000 lung cancer deaths every year. About 2,900 of these deaths occur among people who have never smoked. On January 13, 2005, Dr. Richard H. Carmona, the U.S. Surgeon General, issued a national health advisory on radon.
Things You Should Do To Prepare For The Imminent Economic Collapse & Stock Market CRASH!
Today, millions of Americans say that they believe that the United States is on the verge of a major economic collapse and will soon be entering another big stock market crash and Great Depression. But only a small percentage of those same people are prepared for that to happen. The sad truth is that the vast majority of Americans would last little more than a month on what they have stored up in their homes. Most of us are so used to running out to the supermarket or to Wall-Mart for whatever we need that we never even stop to consider what would happen if suddenly we were not able to do that when the economic collapse happen. Experts predict that the stock market crash will happen in this year and the economic collapse 2017 is inevitable.
When the economic collapse and stock market crash occurs, it will happen quickly. No one will predict it. That's because the signs of the economic collapse are difficult to see.
For example, the U.S. economic collapse and stock market crash happened on September 17, 2008. That's the day panicked investors withdrew a record $140 billion from money market accounts. That's where businesses keep the cash to fund day-to-day operations. If withdrawals had gone on for even a week, the entire economy would have halted.
If the economy collapses, you will not have access to credit.
Banks will close. That means high demand, and low supply, of food, gas and other necessities. If the economic collapse affects local governments and utilities, then water and electricity will no longer be available…
The Economic Doomsday is here. The second financial bubble is going to soon burst, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it. The Federal Reserve has set up the American economy for financial collapse for printing trillions of dollars back in 2008 and 2009.
The Federal Reserve’s policies of printing trillions of dollars back in ’08-09 have locked into place a serious financial crisis at some point in our future. Going so far as to intimate the financial collapse and market crash will occur at least some time in the next two years, “It’s unavoidable, and even Donald Trump can’t stop it.
Top economists predict that within the next 18-24 months, the imminent economic collapse will happen. The Federal Reserve has set up the American economy for financial collapse and market crash for printing trillions of dollars back in 2008 and 2009.
The Federal Reserve’s policies of printing trillions of dollars back in ’08-09 have locked into place a serious financial crisis….
Holistic Doctor Found Dead In His Natural Health Clinic, Police Investigate as Homicide
Police have now confirmed that they are treating the death of 59-year-old old Dr. Juan Gonzalez, a board certified holistic doctor, as a homicide; he was found dead in his natural health clinic. I have been contacted by immediate family members, patients, friends regarding his death. He was well loved. Our heart goes out to all of them.
Patients have emailed (and even posted in the comments below) that Dr Gonzalez was treating cancer patients- successfully. In fact, he had (allegedly) asked a few to testify as he had some upcoming court dates, apparently for treating said cancer patients. As we all know, the government doesn’t like holistic doctors treating cancer patients.
Lees, Robert James (Hinckley Leicestershire Aug 12 1849 – Leicester Jan 11 1931): Medium Healer Writer Journalist
"Robert James Lees was a journalist, philanthropist, novelist and medium. In the latter role he anticipated that later researchers would treat his exploits with a degree of scepticism. It was inevitable that those with a knowledge of the fraudulent aspects of Victorian Spiritualism would choose to discount many of Lees’ claims, together with those of his family and friends, regarding them as mere stories or legend invented to support the spiritualists’ dogma. Moreover, Lees’ decision to place himself outside the main tradition of Victorian spiritualism and to align himself with the Christian free churches created for him, many enemies who were always available to denounce him.
"Robert James Lees was born at the very beginning of the rebirth of Spiritualism in England. Although his writings and preaching were influential, he refused to align himself with any of the organised groups who promoted spiritualism (or investigations into spiritualism) in Victorian England. His was a very personal spiritualism interwoven with his unique interpretation of scripture."
