The Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek museum in Copenhagen features a number of Greek and Roman portrait busts and statues. These are very fragile and a number of them ended up with broken noses.

Jesse Marcel Jr., one of the last witnesses to the Roswell debris (inset of his father) It is a shame that 66 years after the Roswell crash we STILL don’t know the truth… and with one of the last credible witnesses having passed away now, I fear we never will. Marcel Jr. was one of the last surviving witnesses to the debris recovered during the Roswell incident.
Dr Jesse Marcel was the son of Major Jesse Marcel whose involvement in the recovery of debris from the Roswell UFO

Here’s an interesting bit of trivia. Today, July 8th, was the very day 66 years ago that the legendary UFO crash supposedly took place in Roswell, New Mexico.

Against the backdrop of the tiny ET discovery, Greer also will explain in his documentary just how readily available certain forms of off-world alternative energy sources are and how they could be used for advanced alien life forms to cross galaxies to visit our own solar system.

Many people believed the end of the world would come on December 21, 2012, the date that marked the end of the Mayan calendar. That date has come and gone, and I can’t help but wonder what all the die-hard Mayan Apocalypse believers are thinking now. There were two general ways of thinking about how this end would come: it would either be a horrific doomsday scenario that would be the end of all life as we know it, or it would mark the beginning of a new age of human enlighte
