Submission + - Baltic Sea UFO/USO disables electronic equipment: Mystery deepens (allvoices.com) 2

Kilzfire writes: "Update on the Baltic UFO/USO: The world has been waiting for more than a week for some more information, pictures, or video from the Ocean X team and their latest Baltic Sea diving expedition. The Ocean X team last posted an update on 6/15/2012. Only three pictures have been repeatedly displayed on news sites of what was found at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. As it turns out allvoices.com is reporting that the cameras and satellite on the ship stop working when close to the object. For a strange object made of stone that is not a UFO it does seem to interfere with electrical equipment."

Submission + - Baltic Sea UFO Not a UFO at All (oceanexplorer.se)

Kilzfire writes: "Treasure hunters last year on June 11th doing sonar scans uncovered what looked to be a UFO at the bottom of the Baltic Sea. On the 15th of June this year they are reporting that the circle found at the bottom of the sea is comprised of mushroom cap shaped stones all interconnected. This circle of stone mushroom caps is 60 meters(196 feet) in length and about the same in diameter. World renown geologists are stating that this is no naturally occurring geological phenomenon. More scientists are relating that if it is a man made structure it is likely as old or older than the last ice age which is around 12,000 years ago."

Comment Exact Opposite of What Should Have Been Said (Score 5, Insightful) 703

That's funny last night I was thinking the exact opposite of what the MADD organization came up with. I mean the game tells you look this is NOT safe you really should get a taxi. And I not actually knowing how to hail a taxi yet decided to risk it. Sure enough it was a BIG mistake. The car was insanely hard to control I got within viewing distance of one patrolling policeman and he called in a ton of them to put me out of commission. I think Rockstar came through in this virtual world with a true to life scenario showing that drunk driving is not the way to go. I was thinking the whole time...next time I will take the cab this is crazy! What a waste of my time as I had not saved the game recently!

Submission + - Fire Safe Cigarettes (firesafecigarettes.org)

Kilzfire writes: "Legislation is being enacted across the nation unbeknowst to many citizens our freedom is being slowly taken away from us. I am sure many of you have heard about the smoking bans from public areas. Have you heard about the FSC (Fire Safe Cigarettes)? At some point in December I noticed my cigarette was different as it was hard to keep lit. Apparently the State of Illinois has brought forth a law that requires all cigarettes sold within it's borders to be fire safe as of January 1, 2008. And Illinois is just one of the many states that have decided that it's citizens cannot decide on what type of cigarette to smoke."
