UFO Swarm

The UPI is reporting that the British gov’t will release previously classified details on hundreds of UFO sightings. It appears that these will represent the sightings that the Defense Ministry failed to find any rational explanation in their investigation. In other words, those worthy of the X-files.

In other news this past week the Japanese Defense Chief is mulling actions to take in the event of a UFO attack.

Yes, preparedness is a good thing. :)

When it comes to maps, Strange Maps is all about the weird, wonderful and unique in the map world. From the Russo-China conflict to the Amazon forest to a breakdown of blondes in Europe by country. Here’s a sampling of some of my favorite finds:

Coffee roaster

Too bad its probably too late to add something to our wish lists for Christmas, I’d give this gadget a serious consideration.

Roast your own coffee just like the professionals do—only in the convenience of your kitchen with the Swissmar Bravi Home Coffee Roaster.

Roasting brings out the true aromas and flavors you never knew were in your favorite beans. Its roasting capacity holds enough beans to make 25 to 30 cups of coffee. 15 settings let you roast for a variety of tastes, from light to dark consistency.
