‘Ancient’ Structure Is From The 1990s

In Scotland, archaeologists were disappointed when they found that a stone circle which they believed to be centuries old actually only dates back to the late 20th century.

A group of researchers in Leochel-Cushnie, Aberdeenshire, Scotland swarmed the monument when the current owner of the land reported the site to the authorities.

The archaeologists indicated that the site is authentic and added it to the “recumbent stone circles” list. Recumbent stone circles are a rare kind of circle particular to that local area.

Stop The Party

But the council reported that the celebrations were brought to a halt when the former landowner reported to a representative of Historic Environment Scotland and Aberdeenshire Council’s archaeology service that the circle was only a replica.

While analyzing the site, the archaeologists had observed that it was quite small and that some of the “kerb” and “cairn” stones one would expect to find, were missing. But still, the council says that this amount of variation isn’t uncommon.

A historic environment record assistant at Aberdeenshire Council, Neil Ackerman stated that although they were disappointed to learn of the development, it adds an element of excitement to the story.

He says that the fact that it copies the regional monument type so closely shows how much the locals know, appreciate and engage with this region’s archaeology.

He hopes that they continue to use and enjoy the stones and that although it is not ancient, it still an amazing location and is a fantastic part of the landscape.

Recumbent stone circles were built about 3,500 to 4,500 years ago. They are rings of rock identifiable by two pillars with a large stone laid on its side in between them.

They were found in the north-east of Scotland and believed to have been built in the  Stone Age for astronomical purposes ie to monitor the movement of the moon and the sun, and track the year as it passes, according to Forestry Commission Scotland.

Ackerman also says that it is difficult to date these types of monuments and for that reason, they record modern replicas of these ancient monuments, should they later be misidentified.

He also says that they welcome new reports of modern reconstructions of ancient monuments, especially when they are built with skills similar to those of the stone circle and those that reference the monument types that already exist.

Fake Festival in UK Confused Half A Million Revelers

For the good people of Britain, one of the most common problems you have is the weather. We’re often left with about 12 weeks of the year to fit all of our enjoyment into – and it’s why so many festivals happen year-in, year-out.

Some festivals sound better than others, of course – but it’s important to remember that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Take the festival which was supposed to have everyone from Liam Gallagher and Richard Ashcroft to the Arctic Monkeys, the 1975 and Blossoms.

It’s like a dream festival for all of those middle-aged men with Paul Weller haircuts!

Sadly, a dream was all it was. A rather wild college student threw together an awesome looking flyer for an event called ‘Yorkshire Fields’ – and it had just about everyone you could think of. It even had Scottish musical superstar Gerry Cinnamon!

More importantly, though, the line-up was a lot of bollocks. It was posted online, and it got so many people excited. Ollie Yates is the mastermind behind the evil scheme, and he managed to make a fool of many a festival traveler. It was all part of a social media campaign for college, and Yates decided it was a good idea to try and fool half the UK music scene.

With a simple £5 Facebook Ads boost, the post got around the social media page and before long had around 500,000 people viewing the image in total. This seen people talking about, tagging their mates and making plans for a totally fictitious festival.

The dubious scheme unveiled

However, as it continued to go on, it had to eventually be unraveled for the waiting public. The announcement on the ‘official’ Facebook page announced that it was a social experiment to test how social media could empower and build business: hence the total lack of detail outside of the single Facebook page.

Yates spoke about the project with LADBible, where he said: “The aim was to get a few reactions on how the post could be shared and how something that’s so ludicrous [could] go viral, and actually get people to believe it.

“I didn’t expect the result I got in the end. I got the page to over 5,000 likes (which is now going down as I announced it wasn’t real).”

Naturally, there has been a happy mixture of charming ripostes, witty retorts and, as this is the internet, downright abuse. Given it was eventually being shared around musicians and asking them for comment, we’re sure that this college experiment has well and truly been a resounding success – so long as you never spent hours trying to work out how to procure tickets

Watch: Container Ship Battles Storm

Any environment of a huge amount of water is generally unknown and hostile territory for most humans and they can be really scary sometimes. We are programmed to fear the unknown and other environmental elements. It makes perfect sense in terms of survival.

Despite all of our knowledge, progress and modern technology, oceans continue to be the mysterious and enigmatic traps with some very real dangers hidden in their bellies. And when we talk about the amount of water and scary we mean ocean storms! Something that will always remain scary no matter how much technology will develop or how big ships will be built.

This video is so amazing you will probably think is a scene from a movie! But, actually is not! While crossing the Atlantic on the container ship Oleander, the crew manages to film a spectacular storm off Bermuda. We told you that it looks like a scene from a movie!

Waves come in all shapes and sizes—from small ones calmly lapping on the shore to large rogue waves out at sea. Storms interact with the ocean on the surface, from hurricanes to tsunamis. These waves are really big and scary!

The ocean is a central image. It is the symbolism of a great journey. Being out there in the ocean, God’s creation, it’s like a gift He has given us to enjoy and sometimes to provoke the fear inside of us!

Watch: Daring (and easy) Escape From Police Garage

It sounds like a scene from some satirical or adventure movie, but trust us on this, this is very much real. One very clever and resourceful perp decided to make a final run for it, after being brought to Porter County jail, when the policemen who brought him in for booking left the cruiser door AND garage door wide open.

Sounds too good to be true, but we have the CCTV footage to prove it. A 25-year-old Michael Maldonado made the 100-meter-dash from the garage of Porter County jail in Indiana on Monday, March 26, when he noticed that the jail garage door took its sweet, sweet time closing. Two squad cars arrived in the garage, one holding Maldonado, and parked near the door leading to booking. The officers got out of their vehicles and moved away, their backs turned on the perp in custody, knowing that he is locked in the car.

If you take a closer look at the car on the left, you may notice it shaking and some ruckus going on inside. A moment later, the driver’s side door opens and out comes Maldonado, shoeless and darting for the exit before the automatic door shuts down.

It took the policemen a while to process what was happening. By the time they realized it, their perp was out and free, with a pair of glistening handcuffs to boot.

The footage has been watched over 30,000 times in just one day. The following morning, Porter County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Sgt. Jamie Erow confirmed a statement that Maldonado has been found and brought back into custody.
