Florida residents received a very worrying warning on Sunday when they were told in an official alert the area had “extreme zombie activity.”
Lake Worth residents received the message during a power cut on Sunday. The alert warned of both a power outage and zombies, and came through at about 1:41am, meaning some residents would have woken up to a very scary message.
“Power outage and zombie alert for residents of Lake Worth and Terminus,” the alert said. “There are now far less than seven thousand three hundred and eighty customers involved due to extreme zombie activity.”
‘Terminus’ is actually a fictional town from the hit zombie TV show, ‘The Walking Dead.’
The city hasn’t revealed how a zombie warning went out along with the power outage message. The Lake Worth Live Facebook page cited the city’s public information officer, Ben Kerr, who said 7,800 customers were affected by the outage and the city is “looking into the reports that the system mentioned zombies.”
“I want to reiterate that Lake Worth does not have any zombie activity currently and apologize for the system message,” Kerr said.
Officials told WPBF the alert did come from the city, but that it had been altered.
The mysterious error comes after residents in Hawaii received an alert that a ballistic missile threat was headed their way in January. This turned out to be the result of an employee pressing the wrong button.
A restaurant in China is offering patrons free food, but there’s a catch. They have to be able to fit through the smallest opening of the gate.
This will probably upset and offend those who meltdown over the most inane issues, so if you’re easily offended, perhaps stop reading now. But the owner of an eatery in East China obviously doesn’t care who is offended. Zhao Long is asking patrons to try to squeeze through different sizes of gaps between bars and offering discounts for those who get through the narrowest spaces.
His restaurant in Jinan City offers customers free food and free beer, as long as they can fit through a 15cm (almost 6 inches) gap. Now, 15cm wide isn’t all that wide, and some say it’s too “skinny.” However, most people would have a go at it if they thought it meant free food and beer for everyone, and it does.
Zhao means well, reported the LAD Bible. He wants to present a new way of making people mindful of the amount they eat and drink. He said: “So many people have told me that they’ve failed losing weight – just because they can’t quit drinking beer. Maybe this could serve as a reminder to them to keep an eye on their diet.”
Here’s the nitty-gritty of how his system works. If you get through the smallest gap, you get free food and your entire table gets free beer. The next step up is an 18 cm (just over 7 inches) gap. If you get through that you win 5 beers – which is nothing to thumb one’s nose at, unless you dislike beer. The third increment is 25 cm (9.84 inches) and you get a free beer, which is still a good deal if you get through there. After that, it goes up to 30 cm. At 30cm (11.8 inches, almost a foot) you get no discount but are told: “your figure is just average – you shouldn’t ask for more.”
Zhao also says that at least one person gets through the smallest gap each day earning them the largest reward. He was also rather quick to add that all of them are female. He also said many still get through the second smallest gap, which still gets them 5 free beers.
A Dallas-area doctor was recently suspended by the Texas Medical Board following a spate of bizarre and even dangerous behavior at his practice that some might describe as being demonically inspired.
According to a local CBS News affiliate in North Texas, Dr. Kurt Pflieger first started showing signs that something was wrong back in January when co-workers say he tried to roughhouse with a two-year-old patient, whom he reportedly attempted to throw over his shoulder and missed, sending the child plunging to the floor head first.
At one point, Dr. Pflieger started bringing a dog with him to the office, witnesses say, where he would roll around with it on the floor in the hallway, right in the way of patients and their families. This was bookended by his showing up to work late on the regular, sometimes wearing the same shirt and sweatpants three days in a row.
Perhaps most disturbing were Dr. Pflieger’s verbal outbursts while seeing his patients. According to reports, Dr. Pflieger would traipse into patient waiting rooms while in the middle of praying out loud, only to suddenly scream “SATAN!” much to the shock of those in his presence.
When he wasn’t showing up to work with slurred speech, presumably due to alcohol or drug consumption, Dr. Pflieger was apparently engaging in strange behavior like slapping co-workers on their rear ends, announcing his sexual behavior in inappropriate ways, and even calling staff meetings only to declare his relationship status.
Dr. Pflieger even started committing illegal activity when he began handing out prescription pads to his office staff and telling them to write prescriptions if they needed to, which is a federal offense. The final straw, however, was when Dr. Pflieger arrived at work crying while still wearing his pajamas, which is when the authorities decided to intervene.
“I’m glad that he’s getting a mandatory break, for sure,” Leslie Cook, a mother of one of Dr. Pflieger’s patients, told CBS News. “And being the mother of a baby that I love so much … I would want him to see a doctor that’s well rested, happy and clear-headed.”
What’s going on with conventional doctors these days?
It could simply be that Dr. Pflieger has been going though some tough times in his personal life, the mental and emotional consequences of which had begun to manifest in creepy, bizarre and even illegal ways. But such weirdness does seem to be a growing trend, especially among conventional doctors who basically show up to work and administer vaccines and prescription pharmaceuticals to patients all day long.
Back in December, a New Jersey doctor had her medical license suspended for similarly bizarre infractions. According to reports, anesthesiologist Dr. Sharon C. Worosilo’s behavior was so out there that authorities declared her to be temporarily unfit to do her job.
Several patients apparently contacted the Professional Assistance Program of New Jersey to report that Dr. Worosilo had a few verbal episodes of her own in the reception room where she works, in one case yelling “absurdities” while waving around a knife. She was also accused of calling one patient a drug addict, and threatening another with battery.
A document outlining the case states that Dr. Worosilo “engaged in a pattern of bizarre and inappropriate behaviors, all of which demonstrate that her judgement – medical and otherwise – is severely impaired, to the point that she is incapable of discharging the functions of a physician in a manner consistent with the public’s healthy, safety and welfare.”
Consequently, such behaviors “strongly support a finding that she presently is suffering from impairment, which may be related to substance abuse, psychiatric illness and/or an undiagnosed and untreated mental illness,” it adds.
In most countries, the only way you can punish politicians and civil servants for not doing a proper job is by not voting for them in the next elections, but in Bolivia, they have a thing called “social justice”.
The people of San Buenaventura, a small town in northern Bolivia, recently made good use of their constitutional right to social justice by putting their mayor, Javier Delgado, in stocks for an hour, to let him know that they are not satisfied with his service. Photos of the disgraced mayor sitting on the ground with one leg trapped in the medieval restraining device while surrounded by angry townspeople have been doing the rounds on South-American social media and news sites since late February.

On February 25th, mayor Javier Delgado was supposed to inaugurate a bridge built with state and municipal funds, but when he got to the site, he was shocked to learn that the crowd waiting for him was not there to attend the event, but teach him a lesson. Without even bothering to explain what he was being punished for, they just grabbed Delgado and put him in wooden stocks.
“They didn’t even give me the opportunity to find out why they were submitting me to this punishment, but I did not put up resistance knowing that there was a risk of things escalating even further,” the mayor told La Razon. “Later, they gave me the opportunity to explain and then they apologized to me, as they saw that they had been manipulated and misinformed by these people.”
By “these people”, Delgado means his political adversaries and local entrepreneurs who are trying to undermine the work he has done in over two years of service to the community. He claims these people are in the pocket of river transporters and logging companies, the interests of which have been affected by some of his policies.
However, Daniel Salvador, a native of San Buenaventura, told Radio Fides that mayor Delgado had been punished for not fulfilling his commitments to the local community, lying to them and not making them his priority when they ask for an audience.
To make matters worse, this was actually the third time that mayor Javier Delgado got a taste of social justice during his two-and-half year term. The first time, he was put in stocks just a few months after coming into office, while the second time, members of the community took over his office and kept him away for two whole months. Fearing for his life, he fled to a neighboring town, until a commission of indigenous authorities put an end to the conflict.
“I am one of only a few people in the whole country who have been subjected to these traditional punishments,” Delgado complained. I wonder why that is, though…

Like many other indigenous communities in Bolivia, the people of San Buenaventura govern themselves according to three basic principles “ama qhuilla, ama llulla, ama suwa (do not be lazy, do not be a liar, do not be a thief)” and resort to social justice whenever someone infringes any of them. Social justice has been included in the country’s constitution in 2009, although it is only acceptable in the case of minor crimes, like trespassing private property or cattle theft. Serious crimes still have to be referred to the courts.
However, instead of answering questions posed by the press grouping, Chan-ocha deployed the bizarre prop to evade a potentially tricky situation. Standing in front of a microphone, Chan-ocha, an army general who seized power in a 2014 coup, directed two aids to place the life-size cut-out before the media.

“If you want to ask any questions on politics or conflict, ask this guy,” Chan-ocha said, pointing to the cardboard cut-out.
It’s not the first time General Chan-ocha has engaged in unusual behavior while in office. In 2014, the prime minister accused opposition groups of casting black magic spells against him.
Wasn’t 2011 the heyday of interesting conspiracies and mysteries? I remember back then, I began to see YouTube videos investigating strange “boom” sounds across the world, and all kinds of similiar phenomena.
As the years passed in this decade, the phenomena became clearer. Entire websites have been dedicated to trying to figure out what these sounds are.
Here in 2018, they are still continuing.
In 2017, some boom sounds were reported to be caused by aircraft and industrial companies, but obviously a lot of things could be excused by that.
On November 22, Salt Creek, Texas was the scene of a loud explosion-like sound, confusing authorities. After as much time as they wanted, “defense” contractor Lockheed Martin took the blame for making the sound, claiming it was a sonic boom from an aircraft test.
Just one day prior on November 21, two loud boom type sounds were heard in Colorado, across nearly the entire state. It was reported by a local CBS affiliate that “hundreds of people from Lakewood to Brighton, Lochbuie and Elizabeth took to social media reporting one to two distinct ‘explosion-like’ sounds that rattled windows and shook walls.”
The CBS affiliate contacted the nearby Air Force base, and the officials said their operations ended exactly before the boom sounds happened, which ruled out the possibility of it being a jet. That doesn’t sound suspicious at all. So CBS improbably suggested that maybe it was caused by Leonid shower meteors: but an expert on astronomy explained the meteors would be far too quiet to make a sound, making that an impossibility.
Eventually it was reported by the Denver Post that a barren oil storage tank became over-pressurized, and a couple great booming sounds occurred when the lid blew off. It doesn’t make sense that multiple booming sounds would occur in this case though. It supposedly happened at a Weld County facility.
Around the exact same time, other US states saw similiar loud booming sounds. In the suburbs of Detroit the sound was heard on November 18, and a steel company took the blame eventually. 3 days prior in Lewiston, Idaho on November 15th, an unexplainable boom occurred.
One day prior to that on the 14th of November, another boom hit the center of Alabama, with no explanation except the basic “maybe it was an aircraft” from AL.com. Then again Alabama experienced a similiar thing, to no explanation.
Another day prior to that on November 13, a boom hit San Diego without an explanation. It was suspected to be some unnamed “weather event,” and some residents reported the ground shaking.
About 3 weeks prior to that on October 25, a loud boom hit Southern New Jersey. A Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst representative suggested it may have been a sonic boom from an airplane, but their base didn’t even have jets that are capable of creating a sonic boom.
Those reports of shaking down in S Jersey were probably from a sonic boom. The @USGS is reporting NO earthquakes in NJ. Closest was TN
8:02 AM – 25 Oct 2017
Similar booming sounds have been documented in Norway, Wales, Australia, and all over the world: what is this? Perhaps one day it will strike us that this was something far worse than we had imagined. Or maybe we will realize it’s just a regular thing that means nothing.
Christmas came early for a homeless man at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport who stumbled on two bags of cash holding €490,000, after he “accidentally” leaned on a door at one of the terminals.
The man, only identified by airport police as a 40-year old of North African origin, was spending most of his time rummaging through trash bins at Charles de Gaulle International Airport in late 2017.
In December, he “accidentally” leaned on a door at one of the terminals which turned out to be the entrance to the office of a cash handling company. It remains unknown why the company that collects money from airport shops, ATMs and arriving planes kept its premises unlocked.
It took the homeless man only 32 seconds to help himself by coming in, grabbing two bags from the office and heading into an area with no CCTV surveillance.
While it was initially estimated that €300,000 ($360,000) were in the bags, the amount of the stolen cash has now been updated to €490,000 ($590,000), Le Parisien reported Thursday citing a source familiar with the case. The notes appear to be untraceable, as the cash was a “fresh collection,” with handlers not having dealt with it by the time the homeless man had his hands on it.
“At first we thought it was a setup, but it looks like it was just luck,” AFP cited a police source as saying.
While the investigation is ongoing, the man is still missing. “It is possible that he has since left [France] through Belgium or any other European country. He would then be able to take a plane back to his home country or make a new life in the sun,” the source told Le Parisien.
