14 Death Ray Conspiracy Theories

The death ray -- what we know and what we really don't want to believe about the world's most dangerous weapon. It's all here. The man in this photo is believed to have been killed by a death ray... but does that prove a murderous, nearly-invisible laser beam really exists? In "Nikola Tesla's Death Ray and the Columbia Space Shuttle Disaster," author Sean Casteel argues that photos exist that show "anomalous flashes of purple light around the shuttle minutes before it was destroyed. NASAS [sic] later confiscated the photographer's camera and flew it to Mission Control by a special jet."

10 Most Notorious Criminals in the History of the FBI

As a culture, we are obsessed with many things – road trips, Hollywood, sports, backyard BBQs, flat-screen TVs, theme parks and big-time crime stories. This is what America means to us. But sometimes, however, some people think the conventions of a civilized society don’t apply to them. And when that sense of Americana is threatened, we let the dogs out – the FBI. When the FBI is called in, you know it’s serious. Just ask investment banker Celeste Bright, the FBI’s most recent person of interest in the dramatic series by the same name. They may wear suits.

10 Human Freaks of Nature

Kermit the Frog sang that “It ain’t easy being green.” How about, “It ain’t easy being a conjoined-twin forced into a humiliating form of circus-slavery,” or “It ain’t easy having no limbs.” Being green is the least of these people’s worries (in fact, it might be nice to be culturally-beloved for a change). At the turn of the last century, entertainment was a different species than it is today, having no T.V. nor radio nor action movies; you had to witness a living miracle in order to be fully entertained, and circuses provided that very thing. Showcasing hoards of deformed and mutant varieties of humans – that freak-collectors like P.T.

Circus sideshows might have been a cruel form of psychological abuse for any of the so-called “freaks” placed under contract (or a kind of indentured slavery), but some of these individuals also went on to profit greatly off what no one else would hire.
