The Famous Boulder ‘Wizard Rock’ has Vanished!

The Arizona Republic reported that a one-ton boulder, known as Wizard Rock, mysteriously disappeared from its location approximately 2 weeks ago.

Officials from Prescott National Forest said it would take very heavy machinery to remove this boulder from its location due to its size and weight.  Jason Williams, Trails and Wilderness Manager at the park told the Republic that you could move it if you had a backhoe.

He added that a Bobcat could be used if the trailer was positioned just right and you didn’t mind if things were harmed along the way.

Williams suggested that the boulder could have been removed in broad daylight because anyone passing by would not think they were trying to steal the boulder instead they would be seen as workers of the park just moving it.

The general public would think somebody working with large equipment in the forest would assume it’s authorized.  It would appear they were professionals doing something that was authorized by the forest service and probably even paid for doing so.

A Famous Landmark

Wizard Rock was a well-known landmark to many people as they drove by along State Route 89 and a very popular place for people to visit and take photos with the rock.  Wizard Rock has streaks of white quartz running through it which makes it very distinctive.

Debbie Maneely, spokesperson for Prescott National Forest, told Newsweek the boulder had been reported to the trails and wilderness program by a member of the public that appreciated this unique boulder for many years.

Since that time, various media stories have popped up and the park has gotten unconfirmed reports on social media claiming the boulder may have been taken 1 to 2 months before ever being reported as missing.

Maneely said that the disappearance of this unique boulder only shows that there are so many interesting and unique things all around us in the national forests and, as humans, we often do not take the time to appreciate the value of these wonderful items until it’s too late and they are gone.

Park officials are urging anyone who has information regarding the disappearance of Wizard Rock to call 928-443-8110.  Removing items and minerals from National Forest lands without a permit is illegal.  Anyone caught doing so, can be fined up to $5,000 or sentenced to six months in jail or both.

It’s disappointing and unfortunate when national forests lose such precious items like this boulder.  Their hope is that it will be returned to them and these recent occurrences will become an educational opportunity to learn from, not just walk off with.

These boulders belong to the public and should be enjoyed by locals as well as visitors for many years to come.  If anyone has any questions regarding what they can take or purchase from the Prescott Nation Forest or how to get legal authorization to do so, they should contact any of the park’s offices for more information.

This is not the first time in recent months that boulders have been removed from Prescott National Forest.  Over the past 4 months, there have been 2 different incidents where boulders weighing between 750 to 2,000 pounds have been taken using heavy equipment.

Maneely said when boulders have unique features such as their coloring or if their shape looks like an animal or, in this case, something dark and magical, people will take them for yard decoration.

Why people go through this is not really known.  These heavy rocks are used by the U.S. Forest Service to create barriers, define parking areas, and build large retaining walls.

Prescott National Forest runs along 1.25 million acres across north-central Arizona, encompassing a variety of environments from deserts to mountains.  We just hope the boulder will be found and brought back to its rightful place!

What’s With a British Hotel Charging $68,000 for a Pint?

According to Peter Lalor, chief cricket writer and beer editor for The Australian, he was watching the Ashes Cricket Match in Manchester at the Malmaison Hotel’s bar on a Sunday. He paid his tab for his Scottish Caledonian Deuchars IPA but later realized something was terribly wrong.

In a Tweet, he said he didn’t have his reading glasses when he was handed his bill for the beer. The barmaid said she had problems with the register but eventually fixed it.

He didn’t give it much thought and said he didn’t need a receipt and then just before she left, he realized this was the most expensive beer in the history of the Malmaison Hotel in Manchester with a whopping $99,983 charge!

He realized something was not right and asked her how much he paid for the beer. The girl looked at the receipt responding “Oh My God!” He said she appeared a little reluctant showing him the bill.

The hotel told him they would correct the mistake and rectify his bill. Lalor left, believing his bank would never approve this large charge on his bill.

The Plot Thickens

He told The Guardian, he was woken by a phone call from his wife. She discovered a huge drop in their mortgage account.! On top of that, he said they had no problem taking the money out of his account in a matter of seconds but took them 10 working business days to put it back in. Not only has he lost a fair amount of interest but he is also out $99,000.

On top of that, he was charged a $1,710 transaction fee! He found it very concerning that his bank and Visa would let this huge amount of money to go through without asking so much as one question?

A spokesperson from the Malmaison told the paper the hotel was conducting an investigation. They contacted Lalor to apologize and ensured this situation would be resolved as quickly as possible. (Really? You need to investigate a charge of $99,000 for one pint of beer??)

He did say the hotel was being very helpful in correcting the error and he praised Deuchars. He said it is a good beer that has received many awards including the Supreme Champion Beer of Britain. He added that if you think this beer is not worth anywhere near this price tag, he couldn’t agree more!

Note: Very rarely is a beer as expensive as the pint Lalor purchased, but a 750ml bottle of “Lost Abbey Cable Car Kriek did sell for $923 at the Skinner Auction.

Man Loads the Sun Into His S.U.V.

A Russian has been caught on camera loading the sun into his SUV trunk, nonetheless, he is free of legal charges.

His photographer wife, Diana Badmaeva, shot the series of images, she perfectly aligned him with the setting sun to make it seem like he was stuffing it into the vehicle.

Cool Idea

She told SWNS that she does tons of sunset photography and a plan to approach the original concept.

Making all the scenes as fast as possible is the real thing because the sun sets quickly and you have just a few minutes for all this,” she said. “My husband and I talked on the phone so that he would do what I needed. It seems I managed to capture the theft of the century! Or, a quick guide on how to steal the sun.”

Of course, if you want to give it a shot, you’ll need a slightly larger vehicle than the one in the silhouette. Badmaeva told Fox News Autos that it was a Mitsubishi, with a cargo capacity of less than two cubic meters while the volume of the sun is about 1.4 x 10^27 cubic meters :)

Area 51 is Back in the Limelight

Over the past couple of months, UFO followers have gone absolutely nuts! They are flocking to the Nevada desert that is close by the famous, secretive US Air Force military base after a joke was posted on Facebook sometime back this year.

Over two million people said they would attend the event and race through the base to find these “so-called” aliens!  It seems more and more people are not using common sense!

Recently, the organizers of this event decided to cancel for fear of safety, worrying this could turn into another Fyre Festival.  The Fyre Festival was a fraudulent luxury music festival created to promote the company’s app for booking music talent.

Canceled? Who Cares!

Even with the cancellation, people have flocked to small towns like Rachel, NV with a population of 54 residences.  Their sole intent is to meet up with other alien hunters.  To the insane, one fan performed the perfect Naruto run, passing a live news broadcast at the scene.

Should you not know, a Naruto run is performed by leaning forward with your arms stretched out behind you while running!

Area 51 is a military site that is closed off to the public and has been rumored to have evidence of alien contacts.  Shortly after the event gained momentum, the US Air Force issued a very strong warning that people should stay away as this is a training site for American armed soldiers.

A spokesperson for the US Air Force, which I paraphrase, said they are always ready to stand by protecting America and her assets but this recent lure of the conspiracy theory has obviously made the place difficult to resist.

This phenomenon is based on a blend of interests in aliens and swirling government conspiracies, wanting to know something no one knows.

Residents of Rachel have been preparing for the influx of people from around the US as well as other places.  They are installing outdoor floodlights, fencing, and “No Trespassing” signs.  They have organized a radio-equipped neighborhood night-watch fearing there will not be enough food, water, garbage containers, or even toilets to support this mad dash.

There is also a fear that people will flock into the desert with absolutely no knowledge about the climate conditions which during the night hours can drop below 5°C.  People are arriving in shorts and flip-flops and will probably come face-to-face with snakes, scorpions, and other creatures.

Officials are concerned about people becoming angry when they don’t find what they are looking for and cell phone service will become overwhelmed.  Visitors will not find a gas station closer than 45 miles away!

In a nutshell, people will not find what they are hoping for and even though the creators on Facebook called the whole event a fraud, it doesn’t seem to be stopping people from invading this area and potentially putting themselves in harm’s way.

Quite honestly, people, this conspiracy theory has been around since the 50s when people were worried about Nuclear weapons and there is absolutely no proof of aliens living in Nevada.

Delta Passenger on ‘Private’ Plane Left Out One Important Detail

Vincent Peone’s video Tweet went viral last week as it showed him boarding a private Delta flight from Aspen, Colorado to Salt Lake City, Utah as the only passenger. He captioned the short clip, “Last week @Delta gave me my own private jet…kind of.” It seems, however, that the award-winning director may have stretched the truth a bit.

The full story is that, though Peone did board that flight as the only passenger, it never took off! Peone later claimed that his video was “100 percent true” – before he stopped filming, that is!

Well… Kind Off

“After the private jet broke down again with mechanical problems, I took a normal one the following morning,” he confesses in his tweet.

Peone feels no contrition over his post, and though he took a flight alongside other passengers the next day, he’s enjoying the moment of viral fame.

“The footage I have tells a short, funny, and positive story – because those are the kind of stories I like to tell. I make comedy!” he wrote.

He also added, “I had some laughs with the amazing crew while living the dream.”

Delta also has no negative feelings about Peone’s post but, rather, responded to his popular Twitter with a thank you for shouting out to them. Most likely, several others had no issue with his post either as it gave them the opportunity to drool over the “hot pilot” Peone had on the would-be private flight.

Have You Ever Wondered Where The Smiley Face Emoji Came From?

You might not even know what an Emoji is!  These images are faces we use in our text message to display emotions such as blushing, smiling, or scowling.

Whether you want to end your message on a high note, add a smile in the middle of your text, or wishing someone a happy birthday, there’s an emoji for you.  We use them in messages on social media, in our emails to one another, or in other ways to convey an emotion or sentiment.

What you might not know, where did the original smiley come from?  This concept actually started back in the 60s when Harvey Ball created the very first smiley face drawing.  Over the years, the image began to change and develop into smiley emoji drawings that we all love and enjoy to use.

How It All Began:

Graphic artists, Harvey Ross Ball created the first smiley face without giving it much thought, let along turning it into an international icon!  Possibly, he was just doodling while coming up with ideas in his head for his next project.

He was originally hired by State Mutual Life Insurance Company as a graphic artist to produce an image that would encourage their employees to smile more often during their time at the workplace.

It took him less than 10 minutes to draw this cute smiley face and was only paid $45 for his artwork.  While the image probably did nothing to ramp up morale in the workplace, this smiley face caught on like wildfire!

It was printed on buttons, posters, shirts, etc.  Even though Ball never copyrighted the design, saying he was not a man of means or money, his smiley face continued to gain in popularity in our culture.  Before he knew it, even the company workers stood up and took notice of his simple cute drawing.

How The Smiley Face Evolved:

Through the 60s, 70s, and 80s, the little yellow smiley face started to evolve and soon became an image of happiness and peace within pop art and started appearing on tee-shirts and posters.

As mentioned earlier, Ball never claimed the copyright but someone else stepped up to the plate to promote and commercialize this little yellow face.  Franklin Loufrani, a French journalist, was a driven man and he decided to attached this smiley drawing to all his positive newspaper stories and received a lot of attraction from readers.

At one point, he copyrighted the image and made a lot of money selling just about anything he could with the image printed on it.  He named the image simply “Smiley” and started the Smiley Company selling tee-shirt transfers to anyone who wanted to show off this positive image.

Even though the image was created long before the cell phone, this French journalist’s company played an enormous role in the production of the 21st-Century Emoji!

The Birth Of The Emoji:

If you’ve ever wondered how this little smiley face ended up on the internet, we’ve got you covered!  Scott E. Fahlman was a computer scientist at Carnegie Mellon. He is the man who got the idea that would eventually lead to becoming known as an Emoji.

He decided it would be a great idea to have some visual way to express emotions that are funny to text messages, especially at the closing of a message with either a happy or sad face.

Then, Shigetaka Kurita, a Japanese interface designer started sending out cartoons in his company messages that were emoji-like faces.  So in some ways, he is the one who created the emoji!  He used a 12 x 12 grid to produce the pixel images such as laughing faces, hearts, and of course, the original smiley face.

This new concept remained only in Japan for almost 10 years.  Meanwhile, Loufrani’s son Nicolas was working on the smiley replication of emojis.  He created an amazing 470 emojis during 1999 and licensed them out to phone companies for a price.  Finally, in 2010, emojis hit the public internationally with 722 emojis being released on iPhone and Android devices.

Now in the age of cell phones, there are approximately 3,000 emojis available for our devices. It’s almost impossible for any of us to imagine not having these emojis for our messages.  Though I must look back and say it’s a shame that Ball only received a total of $45 for a design that was formed in his head alone.

You might not even know what an Emoji is!  These images are faces we use in our text message to display emotions such as blushing, smiling, or scowling.

Whether you want to end your message on a high note, add a smile in the middle of your text, or wishing...

Blue Java Bananas Are A ‘Sweet Treat’ You Can Grow Yourself

Out with the old, in with the new – the new being Blue Java bananas; they have the color of turquoise and the flavor of vanilla ice cream.

With Cavendish bananas heading toward extinction, people are thrilled to discover the creamy texture and unique, sweet flavour of the Blue Java banana – and who wants boring, old yellow bananas anyway?

These bananas were first discovered and grown in Southeast Asia, but they thrive in all tropical climates, such as Hawaii or even Northern Australia.

A Banana, By Any Other Name

The Blue Java banana goes by multiple names; the ‘Ice Cream’ banana, the ‘Hawaiian’ banana, and Cenizo bananas are just a few of them. These trees are great because in addition to the delicious, unique fruit they produce, they also produce it quickly with lots of shade, as well.

The fruit is a silvery or bright blue color when it isn’t ripe, but turns to a yellow similar to Cavendish bananas when it’s ripe and ready to be devoured. Fun to eat both raw or cooked, they’re exceptionally delicious served with ice cream or frozen custard.

The Blue Java variety of bananas is tough, unlike the Cavendish which is facing the risk of extinction due to problems with cloning and rampant disease.

The Blue Java thrives most in places like Fiji, the Philippines, Hawaii, and even some of the southern states in America – all places with warmer climates.

Attempting to grow them in the midwestern United States probably wouldn’t work though the plant has a strong root system and is hardy, wind-resistant, and cold tolerant up to 20 degrees Fahrenheit.

On average, you’ll find Blue Java bananas at a length between seven and nine inches, and the trees themselves typically reach 15 to 20 feet and bloom anywhere from 15 to 24 months following planting.

Where Can They Grow?

The bananas have a pleasant aroma and flavor. Check your geographical zone, and see if you can grow them in your own climate; they do best in zones eight through ten, but they also grow in greenhouses.

A potted plant may produce bananas as soon as nine months, and if you can’t find a local specialty grocer near you that carries blue bananas, you can find them on Amazon!

The thought of Blue Java banana’s creamy, fluffy texture combined with a vanilla ice cream flavour is tempting foodies everywhere with the possibilities they offer. Those on a diet can indulge in one without even cheating!

Commenters on Reddit had a lot to say about this phenomenal fruit. User 4ftFury commented, “Totally! Bananas are actually super tough, resilient plants – I believe in you!” Nate1899 responded, “I live in Florida, just north enough that our banana trees get burnt by the freezes.

Very disappointing. This would be perfect!” User GoHomeWithBonnieJean wrote, “It’s only a matter of time before the Cavendish banana is wiped out.

The reason why bananas are the cheapest fruit in the market is that the current banana sold is based on a monoculture.” It looks like blue bananas couldn’t have arrived on the market soon enough!

This Flight Attendant’s Safety Brief is Simply Hilarious

Some people make life more exciting than it is. These incredible people draw that curve on your lips with every opportunity they could make use of. Have you encountered one of them in any of your flights?

If you are a seasoned traveler, the moment that you hear the safety briefing started, you would wish it ends soon.

You’ve heard this over and over and if you are regularly boarding the same flight, this routine briefing may start automatically playing in your head in advance, ahead of the crew conducting the briefing.

Fortunately, for this flight from Calgary to Arizona, this flight attendant’s sense of humor appealed to all passengers and surely to anyone who watches this video.

Watching this video, you’ll conclude that the one who took the footage thought of catching the moment when the attendant is almost halfway of the briefing.

And, in French:

Have you missed much of the fun? No, not really! The comedy show went on as the flight attendant delivered more fun as the briefing is aired in French Language.

So did it so well that even for one who does not understand any French word would catch the message of what is being portrayed. This a great demonstration that “action speaks louder than words?”

He is a natural comedian. His main asset is how he portrays and interprets words and scenes using his facial expressions in a hilarious way. Watching him, one can feel his energy that is overflowing with a gush of comedy.

Which part for you is his best act? What about that part when he demonstrates the use of an oxygen mask? Check the video to see how he made all passengers burst into laughter with his performance.

What is very commendable with this guy is that his way of delivering humor appeals to all ages: it is as funny to kids as it is to adults. Some comedians perform in a way that it appeals only to a particular age.

Some, with their aim to make people laugh, resort to gestures that sometimes transgress the border of inappropriateness.

Hope that the next time you will board a plane, you will encounter a guy like him. Alternatively, you can watch this video again before your flight so you will assimilate an ample amount of energy.

There is a big chance that you will not feel the passage of time while the routine briefing is being conducted, no matter how boring it is. Sit back and relax and enjoy your flight!

Jet Skier’s Unbelievably Skillful Prank

A cyclist making his way along a country road stopped for a drink and a little rest on a bridge overlooking a large river below. It was no coincidence that Dave stopped here while out pedaling.

He’s been cycling this road for years and he knows that the bridge over the Otonabee River is an excellent place to pause and look out over the water. There is a beach and conservation area in sight of the bridge and there are often boats, Seadoos, and other interesting things to look at for a few minutes.

Dave doesn’t go far without his GoPro camera and when he saw that there were two jet skiers zipping around on their machines, he started to film them. One of them was hopping his jet ski over waves, submerging it, and doing various tricks.

He was obviously very skilled and very athletic, but the trick he was about to pull was something Dave didn’t even think was possible.

Without seeming to look up at the bridge, the jet skier made it appear that he wasn’t even aware that he was being watched. He drove under the bridge, turned and came back.

He slowed down exactly under Dave and whipped around onto the front of the jet ski with impressive speed and agility. Dave was wondering if the jet skier was showing off, or performing a trick for the benefit of the camera.

He didn’t realize that this was about to be an incredible prank that would knock his glasses off, knock his bike over, and leave him completely drenched.

How it’s done

By sitting on the nose of the jet ski, the skier was able to tilt the back end, including the jet, right out of the water. He pressed the throttle and sent a jet of water upwards that was as powerful as a fire hose.

With unbelievable precision, he blasted Dave with hundreds of gallons of water. The jet hit Dave so hard that his bicycle was knocked over and his sunglasses were washed off his face onto the ground.

Dave was soaked from his head to his feet and so was the entire bridge around him.

Luckily, this was a hot day and the soaking was refreshing. But even if it hadn’t been so hot, there’s no way you could help but applaud such a brilliant and well executed prank. Dave laughed in disbelief as the jet skier rode away to meet his friends and share a laugh about what he had just done. Who would ever expect to be soaked from below when you are high above on a bridge?

Dave was so impressed with this display of skill that he cycled down to the park below and shook the jet skier’s hand. They both shared a laugh over what had just happened and the fact that it was all caught on camera.

The jet skier’s name is Brian and if you’re ever standing on a bridge over a river, you better hope he’s not down below on his jet ski. This seems like something Brian has done many times and it’s not likely he’d pass up a chance to do it again.

Snake Goes for Washing Machine Tumble, Survives

How often do you find yourself rattling through the washing machine, trying to find where you placed something of importance?

How often do you pull out a smartphone, wallet, keys, etc. from the washing machine? We’ve all been there. One thing you might not have put into the washing machine, though, is your pet snake. That’s right: Illinois resident Sanela Kamencic managed to put a corn snake through her washing cycle!

When she opened up her washing machine and seen a wee corn snake staring back at her, she naturally found it quite discomforting. As you would expect. Speaking to NBC 5, she said: “I was totally creeped out,

“How did a snake get in the house let alone the washer?”

She immediately phoned the local Evanston Police, who came around to handle it. They moved the snake on to the Chicago Exotics Animal Hospital, where it was checked out. According to one of the people on the scene, Animal Warden Jason Pound, the snake “smelled like Downy”!

As you might imagine, the story gave quite a few good laughs for everyone involved. Despite being through a wash of this capacity, too, the snake seems to be in good spirits – though, as you might imagine, she is not in the happiest of moods.

Penelope, the gorgeously smelling snake

The snake, named Penelope, was a pet who belonged to a nearby girl. It was the girl next door in fact, who had managed to let the snake get out of the bedroom. It snuck out of the house and then through a townhouse wall and into the laundry room. Apparently, the Penelope had been missing for the best part of three days!

When she was found, they managed to take it back to the previous owner and reunite Penelope with her family. Apparently, she’s in fine health, in good mental condition and, more importantly, she smells fantastic!

All is well that ends well in a story like this, and we’re sure that all are involved to have their washing machine snake-free, and their snake smelling like a bed of ross.

JFK Airport to Open Up Dog Terminal?

When we take our dogs to the airport with us, one thing we often worry about is them causing a scene. Hanging around in an indoor airport for so long can naturally have an impact on animals that just love to run around and make the most of every second of the day. So, the staff at JFK International Airport have taken the rather proactive step of opening up an animal-only terminal!

Complete with a ‘dog resort’, this part of the airport is for those canines who just cannot sit at peace otherwise. Now, you can go and handle all of the requirements needed to make sure you can head off on holiday without issue.

Your canine companion can hang around the dog resort while you run around and get everything ready for the big trip. If that does not sound like the perfect day for your dog, we aren’t really sure what will!

Air travel for pets has become a very important part of the process, as in the past it was so miserable, minimalistic and, frankly, quite spartan. Now, things are changing at JFK: you can come on down to the airport and enjoy the first ever privately-owned ‘dog terminal’. Now, your animal can go through the confusing terminal process and make sure the stress and upset of the experience does not have to be so scary.

This is not just for dogs, either. All animals are welcome to be part of “The Ark”, within reason. It will be used as a cargo holding area for animals while they wait for the time to arrive to get the transport that they need. This outrageously interesting idea is one that is going to really change how animals are dealt with when they are taking off from JFK.

Paw-rific

It’s also going to house a Paradise 4 Paws kennel collection, which is an overnight pet resort that canines simply adore. It’s a state-of-the-art facility that makes it very easy for you to enjoy the whole experience and ensures that you can see everything from entertainment staff to vets and even an aviary.

Everything is here that your dogs would need to have some fun and to relax as they come into the facility.

The move, which is set to cost around $48m, is sure to make travel so much easier for those who are bringing their pet with them on a trip. It’s no longer going to be anywhere near as stressful or as challenging as it used to be. Now, you can get everything ready for the big trip while your beloved canine has all the fun in the world in The Ark!
