UFO Grounds Chinese Air Traffic

See. All yall say I’m crazy for believing in the existence of life elsewhere in the cosmos. Well that life got all up in the business of Chinese air traffic late Wednesday night.

According to DailyMail,

A Chinese airport was closed after this mysterious object was spotted in the sky. Arcing over Zhejiang’s provincial capital Hangzhou, the UFO appeared to glow with an eerie white light and left a bright trail in its wake. Xiaoshan Airport was closed after the UFO was detected at around 9 pm and dozens of flights had to be diverted.

Stunned witnesses reported seeing a comet-like fireball in the sky and a number of local residents took photos of the strange ball of light. A local bus driver, giving his name only as Yu, said he had seen a strange glowing object in the sky late on Wednesday afternoon. ‘The thing suddenly ran westwards fast, like it was escaping from something,’ he said.

Here are some images that eye-witnesses captured:

My Pictures of the Nashville Flood

If you’re somehow still in the dark about the historic 1,000 year flood that took place in Nashville last weekend, here are some of my photos from the Hermitage/Old Hickory/Donelson area, with a few shots from Downtown/1st Ave thrown in.

If you’d like to help, buy a We Are Nashville t-shirt from Cool People Care (and read the “We Are Nashville” article that inspired the shirt). All $20 of the purchase price goes to Nashville disaster relief, and the t-shirt is 100% organic cotton.

The Gulf Oil Spill: It’s Much Worse Than You Think

The media and big oil lobbies want you to believe that the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico isn’t all that bad.

Wrong.

Check out this helpful image to learn the truth of the massive spill:

The Guardian says that the spill is easily on track to dump the equivalent of  300,000+ barrels of oil into the ocean. That’s considerably worse than the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill that spilled 258,000 barrels worth.

Now you know….and knowing is half the battle. Yo Joe.
