Amazon Deliveryman Falls into Septic Tank: ‘Walls are Caving In’

An Amazon deliveryman had a fairly stinky experience after falling into a septic tank and was able to chronicle the entire thing. The video reveals he was beginning to fear for his life, too.

The driver, who goes by @dovahkiin0103 on TikTok, recorded a couple of videos as the walls of the septic tank began to close in around him. “I’m standing in knee-deep sludge, piss and s–t, pretty sure,” he said, and pretty sure he was right.

He documented the ordeal in three parts, beginning with his explanation of what happened. And it all started when he was walking near a hole in the ground when the entire ground around it collapsed. He dropped six feet into You Know What.

He explained it in the video, but warning, the language is raw.

After calling dispatch, the driver had to wait frantically as the local fire department made its way to the yard.

“I really do not want to die in someone’s f–kin’ whatever you call these things,” he said.

Finally, he was able to return to Earth’s normal surface — and his shift. He was happy about the former, but not so much the latter, as Amazon asked him to finish his route. He obliged.

“Unfortunately, the answer for me was, yes — I guess I’m too nice,” he said in a third video. “They already sent someone to take 50 packages off me, so that’s cool.”

Talk about wild luck, right? What a day this poor dude had, he’s never going to forget it.

Nancy Pelosi Hires Priests to Exorcise Home of Evil Spirits

Former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi had priests come to her San Francisco home to perform an “exorcism” after her husband was severely attacked in November, according to her daughter.

Alexandra Pelosi, the daughter of Nancy Pelosi, told the New York Times that her mother called priests to perform an exorcism of the house over Thanksgiving, just weeks after David DePape allegedly attacked Paul Pelosi with a hammer.

Nancy Pelosi, her daughter said, felt “guilty” that her husband was injured by a man who was looking for her.

“I think that weighed really heavy on her soul. I think she felt really guilty. I think that really broke her. Over Thanksgiving, she had priests coming, trying to have an exorcism of the house and having prayer services,” Alexandra Pelosi told the New York Times.

“He’s a strong person, athletic. This has been tough. It’s going to be about three or four more months before he’s really back to normal,” she added.

San Francisco District Attorney Brooke Jenkins said that DePape entered the Pelosi’s San Francisco house during the early morning hours of Oct. 28 through a rear glass door and went into a bedroom where Paul Pelosi was sleeping. Paul Pelosi attempted to use a phone in the in-home elevator, but Jenkins said that DePape blocked him from doing so.

Paul Pelosi eventually escaped to a bathroom and dialed 911, Jenkins said.

Once police arrived at the residence, officers observed Paul Pelosi and DePape struggling over a hammer. When officers told the men to drop the hammer, DePape began attacking Paul Pelosi, according to San Francisco police.

DePape is being charged with attempted murder, residential burglary, assault with a deadly weapon and elder abuse, among others. He has pleaded not guilty. He’s also facing several federal charges, which combined with the state-level charges, could land him in jail for decades if found guilty.

According to a federal affidavit, DePape told police he initially intended to hold former Speaker Pelosi hostage and interrogate her.

“If Nancy were to tell DePape the ‘truth,’ he would let her go, and if she ‘lied,’ he was going to break ‘her kneecaps,’” the affidavit stated.

Two Men Killed by ‘Knife-Wielding Chickens’

The men died in two separate incidents in India on Sunday.

The first victim was tying blades to his rooster’s feet ahead of a fight in Kakinada, Andhra Pradesh when, scared by the crowd, it started flapping.

It sliced his leg and wrist, causing him to start bleeding heavily.

The 43-year-old was rushed to hospital, where he died.

Meanwhile, a 20-year-old man was in the audience of a cockfight in East Godavari when he was pounced on by one of the featured critters.

It left deep cuts on his body, and he died on the way to hospital, reports New Indian Express.

Cops are investigating both deaths.

Cockfighting is popular in India’s South-East, with many people watching shows during the Hindu festival Sankranti – which falls on January 15.

Indian authorities made the vicious sport illegal in 1960, with courts upholding the ban in 2016.

In 2018, however, the Supreme Court gave the green light for cockfighting to be held in a traditional way – without blades and gambling.

But despite it being forbidden many still opt to strap knives to their prized birds.

One fan told New Indian Express: “Cockfights are the biggest attractions in Godavari and parts of Krishna and Guntur districts during the three-day Sankranti festival.

“My family and I have come to Bhimavaram all the way from Bengaluru to witness the game live.”

It comes after six people were horrifically sliced to death by glass-encrusted kite strings after a blood-drenched festival in India.

Three children, including a baby, are among the dead after the day of celebration in Gujarat turned sinister on Saturday.

The spectators’ throats were sliced open by the razor-sharp strings used by “kite fighters” at the annual Uttarayan festival.

Huge crowds had gathered to watch the spectacle in the sky, where participants battle to slice their opponent’s cords.

The mid-air tussle for triumph tragically saw two baby girls, aged two and three, and a boy, seven, bleed to death in front of their helpless parents.

Hundreds of participants positioned themselves on terraces and rooftops to send their kites soaring before chaos erupted.

Family Embalms Woman in Their Home After She Died

Rina Yasutake stopped eating in about April 2018 and months later she died. However, her family refused to believe she was dead and embalmed the body in their home

A reclusive family refused to believe their sister was dead after she stopped eating, and embalmed her body at their cottage, an inquest has heard.

Rina Yasutake, 49, shared a home with her mother and siblings in the village of Helmsley, North Yorkshire, UK.

Suspicions were raised at the local chemist in September 2018, when her brother Takahiro, 51, and sister Yoshika, 56, repeatedly bought bottles of rubbing alcohol over a period of days.

Staff at the pharmacy reported that they smelled of “corpses”, North Yorkshire Coroner’s Court heard today.

Emergency services were called to the property and paramedics found Rina’s dead body under a duvet on a mattress on the floor, on September 25, 2018.

While it was obvious that she had been dead for weeks, the family continued to believe she was alive, the inquest was told.

It was later established she had been unresponsive since August 18, though the date of death could not be conclusively determined, the inquest heard.

She was in an advanced state of decomposition to the point of mummification and a postmortem could not ascertain a cause of death.

Craig Hassall KC, representing the family, asked Detective Inspector Nichola Holden, who led the police investigation, if the family was “utterly convinced” that she was alive when the emergency services attended.

The detective replied: “They were at the time and for many months after.”

Home Office pathologist Dr Jennifer Bolton said it was hard to determine how long Yasutake had been dead, given the extent of mummification, but that the level to which it had developed took “some weeks”.

The brother, sister, and their mother Michiko Yasutake, 80, were charged with preventing a lawful and decent burial, but the prosecution was halted when it was found the family members suffered from a rare mental disorder.

Coroner Jon Heath was told there was no evidence of any third-party involvement in her death, no sign of injury or toxicological cause.

Rina Yasutake, who was Japanese, was a talented pupil and won a scholarship to Cambridge University where she studied classics, specializing in linguistics.

She did not work after university and the family had lived together in Helmsley for 20 years, the inquest was told.

In statements given to a psychiatrist, the brother and sister said that during the course of 2018, Rina Yasutake stopped eating, became weaker, and began to move less and less.

Earlier that year, it was recorded that Yasutake, who was 4ft 11in tall, weighed just 90 pounds.

Yoshika Yasutake told the psychiatrist: “She didn’t say much so we said to her to eat and drink more.

“She looked like she was being nourished by eating her soul.

“I don’t know how to explain. Even though she was not eating, she was nourished with spiritual food and she was fulfilled.”

The family said Rina had been behaving strangely after their father’s death, but had not sought any medical treatment since 2013, when she was given counselling after seeing her GP about an “aggressive episode”.

Hassall described his clients as “a very insular and isolated family” and Holden agreed that even when using a Japanese interpreter, communication was difficult, as they spoke their own dialect.

The family were self-reliant and isolated, living first in Nunnington after their mother married a British man and they left Japan.

Holden said that during the course of inquiries, it was found they had no means of communicating with the outside world and no TV or radio.

Heath recorded an open conclusion, saying: “I am unable from the evidence available to determine how she died.”

The family, who still live in the same cottage, did not attend the inquest but Heath said they will listen to a recording of it later.

Nostradamus’ 2023 Predictions Sound Absolutely Terrifying

Michel de Nostredame, most commonly known as Nostradamus, has captured the eyes and ears of the people for centuries with his terrifying predictions of the future, usually entailing some sort of biblical doomsday or other sorts of catastrophic events.

Born well over 400 years ago, Nostradamus published his famous book, “Les Prophéties,” in 1555. Many people have been drawn to his forecasts of what time has in store for us, even if he was not very respected by his contemporaries (via The Guardian). 

Nostradamus reportedly took large doses of nutmeg (which ScienceDirect explains can act as a hallucinogen in large quantities) when he told his secretary his infamous quatrains that contained his apocalyptic prophecies. According to The Guardian, he was described by some as someone “who is shouting nonsense and publishing his prognostications and fantasies on the streets.”

Nonetheless, all these years later, Nostradamus still attracts many followers, mostly for his predictions that seemed to be eerily familiar. Many of his adherents have given him credit for predicting events like the rise of Napoleon, the assassination of John F. Kennedy, and even 9/11. So what does the doomsday-sayer claim 2023 has in store for us? 

Nuclear War

One of the most eye-catching prophecies for many of us living into 2023 is Nostradamus’ claim of a “great war.” One of his quatrains states “seven months great war, people dead through evil” (via History).  Since the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022, some followers of the French soothsayer speculate that this could entail a severe escalation of the conflict, perhaps between the United States and Russia, according to the India Times

There is concern over the possibility of a nuclear war, given that both nations have the most nuclear bombs in the world (via World Population Review). However, History states that, in the short timeframe of the war, it might not be as apocalyptic as it sounds. 

But another prophecy may be doubling down on the likelihood of World War III, which has to do with a prediction of celestial fire. One of the lines in Nostradamus’ books says, albeit in a very cryptic manner, “Celestial fire on the Royal edifice.” This might suggest another end-of-the-world scenario, or that some sort of destruction will be brought upon a royal castle somewhere in the world (via the India Times).

Inflation

Unless you’ve been living completely off the grid, you have probably noticed that a lot of everyday goods have increased in price in the past year and a half on a global scale. But was Nostradamus aware of this inflation? Well, one quatrain states: “So high will the bushel of wheat rise, that man will be eating his fellow man,” according to History.

This might be worth paying attention to because, in 2022, the price of wheat rose to an all-time high at $9.33 a bushel, reports Capital.com. Luckily, the whole cannibalistic part hasn’t happened, so that’s something to celebrate, right?

On the upside, the price of wheat is expected to drop slightly to $8.6 in 2023, states Capital.com. Economists expect core inflation to drop from 5% in 2022 to roughly 3% in 2023, according to The New York Times. That is only about one percentage point away from what is considered to be “healthy inflation,” states The Balance. However, given the shocking events over the past three years, such as COVID-19 and the Russia-Ukraine War, there could be another surprise event that makes inflation stick around, or possibly get worse (via The New York Times).

Life on Mars

There’s one individual who Nostradamus might’ve been targeting all those years ago, and they’ve already been having a rough year in 2022: Elon Musk. Since Musk acquired Twitter for $44 billion, he’s been facing the heat of critics who accuse him of driving the company into the ground after losing more than half of its employees since October (via The New York Times).

On top of that, loads of advertisement revenue has been pulled from the company due to Musk’s somewhat erratic behavior and reinstating controversial figures to the social media platform, according to CNN. Now Musk is dealing with Tesla’s stock plummeting, states CNBC, but perhaps his space company, SpaceX, might be facing not-so-favorable times, according to Nostradamus. 

The stanza reads, “the light of Mars will go out,” and it’s rather mysterious, according to History. It could foreshadow a failed attempt to reach Mars since Musk claims that humans will begin colonizing the Red Planet by 2029. This is already five years behind the original date Musk said he would get a human there, already proving that the company is facing some sort of setbacks. On the flip side, there is some good news for space enthusiasts.

NASA launched a new program to send humans back to the moon for colonization efforts, dubbed Artemis, which saw its first test launch in November 2022 (via NASA). 

Climate catastrophe

Nostradamus may have predicted climate change as well as the catastrophic natural disasters that will ensue because of it. In one verse, he said, “For forty years the rainbow will not be seen. For 40 years it will be seen every day. The dry earth will grow more parched, and there will be great floods when it is seen.” (via History). 

In February 2022, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) concluded after examining data from 34,000 studies conducted in more than 60 countries that the effects of climate change are not only here, but worse than what scientists expected and that irreversible damage has already been done to the planet’s biosphere.

The report found that a multitude of issues, such as crop productivity in Africa dropping by over 33% since 1961, diseases becoming more commonplace, and higher conflict have all occurred as a result of global warming (via World Resources Institute). 

A pinch of salt

But before you go prepping for the apocalypse, it should be noted that much of Nostradamus’ predictions have turned out to be not so true. One of his most famous quatrains was that the world would end in 1999. It reads, “The year one thousand nine ninety-nine seven month… From the sky shall come a great King of terror… [Shall be] revived the great King of Angolmois. Before and after, Mars [shall] reign as chance will have it.” (via The Guardian). As we all know, that prediction never came true.

On top of that, many of Nostradamus’ predictions don’t have date-specific terms, so many of his stanzas can be reinterpreted to mean a variety of different things. Some of the same omens of doom for 2023 were used to foretell doom in 2022.

It would be pretty reasonable to say that some of these predictions should be taken with a grain of salt. But there’s one thing that doomsday prophecies can show us: While Nostradamus may not be correct about what 2023 may hold, we at least have the ability to step back and make changes to improve our world.

Plane Crashes into Ocean Behind Woman Taking Maternity Photos on the Beach

Beachgoers were left stunned after a Second World War plane landed in the sea behind a Florida woman’s maternity photoshoot.

Kristan Othersen, 22, had been taking photos with her boyfriend Kyle Johnson, 23, and mother Amber Ditmer, 40, on Cocoa Beach on 17 April last year.

Meanwhile, a TBM Avengers plane was flying past as part of an air show. However, as its engine failed, Amber took the camera and managed to photograph the incredible emergency landing.

Amber recalled: “My daughter Kristan wanted to take maternity photos at the beach. We were there for 10 minutes and my 14-year-old Miya was in the water and pointed at a plane coming in really low. I started taking photos as the plane kept getting lower and lower. There were people everywhere.”

She continued: “I just assumed there was going to be a trick and nobody moved. Next thing you know, he’s going in the water, and thankfully he did not hit anyone. He managed to get around everyone, as the beachgoers were not moving.”

Fortunately, the pilot was absolutely fine and nobody on the beach was injured.

“It took a few minutes before he actually appeared. He had to keep his headset dry. Bystanders swam out to him and helped him out and then rescue units arrived,” Amber said.

She added: “It was traumatising because I thought there would be someone under the plane. You can see the look of disbelief on my daughter’s face in one of the pictures.

“The pilot was okay but the plane stayed in the water until it was pulled out with a crane a few days later.”

In a separate video posted to Twitter, Kami Moffitt shared amazing footage of the war plane splashing down as others on the beach watched, clearly away from where they could be hurt.

While some people have replied criticising her and others for not immediately helping, she wrote: “We could immediately see the pilot was ok and no one was hit, some guys dove in south of us near the nose of the plane, the pilot didn’t want people in the water due to leaking fuel.

“Everyone there was thankful no one was hurt.”

Cocoa Beach Air Show also said in a statement: “The TBM Avenger performing in the warbird parade had a mechanical issue and the pilot was able to bring the plane down close to the shore.

“Rescue Personnel were immediately on scene and the pilot is okay.”

Equestrian Center Could be Burial Site for Heiress Helen Brach

Chicago candy heiress Helen Voorhees Brach disappeared 45 years ago – and she remains the wealthiest woman in Illinois ever to have disappeared.

Some who have followed the Brach case say there is new ground to cover. A northwest suburban equestrian center that insiders say could have been a prime burial spot for her murderers was bulldozed this week.

As CBS 2’s Chris Tye reported Thursday, critics say searching at the old Glen Grove Equestrian Center site is an expensive needle-in-a-haystack effort. Others say it is worth exploring to solve one of Chicago’s most mysterious disappearances.

In 1977, the candy heiress was worth an estimated $24 million.

“The Brach murder is one of the top mysteries of the Chicago area – there’s no question about it,” said retired CBS 2 reporter John Drummond, who covered the case for CBS 2 for decades. “The wealthiest woman to have ever disappeared.”

“Helen was the richest woman to ever disappear — in the world — without a trace,” said David Wallach, who produced a documentary on Brach’s disappearance, “and the rumor was she was buried under Glen Grove Equestrian Center – and now it’s gone.”

Both men believe there is reason for authorities to dig into a piece of land in north suburban Morton Grove. That land until just this week was the home to the Glen Grove Equestrian Center, which back in 1977 had the attention of Brach investigators.

“I understood at one time, I thought the authorities had gone to the scene there and did some digging looking for the body of Mrs. Brock,” Drummond said.

The facility was going up — with fresh concrete — at the exact same time Brach disappeared. 

“Let’s go back a second time and make sure, because there always was rumors that that’s where Mrs. Brock’s body was — in that stable at Harms and Golf Road in Morton Grove,” Drummond said.

Federal prosecutors over the years indicated the so-called horse mafia was connected to her disappearance.

“It was, I think, the dirty secret of the industry – and it’s now come out of the closet,” federal prosecutor Steve Miller said in July 1994 upon the filing of an indictment in the Brach case.

That’s federal prosecutor Steve Miller from years ago.

Tye caught up with Miller on Thursday.

“She could be buried anywhere,” Miller said. “The most likely burial site, if there was one, would be a place with ties to the equestrian community in the greater Chicagoland area.”

Miller says digging up the Morton Grove land — while equestrian-related and close to Brach’s Glenview home — is a stretch. 

morton-grove-stable-site.png

“I think it’s a waste of resources unless there’s a concrete lead pointing to a specific geographical location,” Miller said.

Glenview police, who lead the cold case, designate it as “investigable.” But they do not have any new evidence to warrant a new search.

Glenview police are open to new tips in a case Drummond frames this way: “I think since World War II, really since that time, it’s been the biggest disappearance we’ve had here – and it’s still a disappearance.”

Brach was financially and romantically connected to the man who was later convicted of conspiracy in the case. Richard Bailey was a horse salesman.

This is all why authorities believe a so-called horse mafia was connected to all this.  

In 1994, Miller secured a conspiracy conviction against Bailey, but not a murder charge.

Meanwhile, in the end, most of Brach’s fortune went to animal welfare charities.

Even 45 years later, investigators ask anyone with information to call Glenview police.

Sole Survivor of Plane Crash Which Killed 156 Says She Still has Visual Scars

In 1987, Cecelia Cichan, then just four years old, was on Northwest Airlines flight 255 when it crashed just after take-off in Michigan.

156 people died, and Cichan, now 39, was the only survivor and became known as the ‘miracle child’.

Speaking about the traumatising incident for the first time, Cichan – who was dug out of the plane’s burning wreckage after a rescuer heard her whimper – opened up about her ‘visual scars’.

Back in 2021, MailOnline ran a story on Cichan’s first public interview about the disaster.

The outlet noted that the crash remained one of the deadliest air disasters in US history and included an interview Cichan gave as part of a documentary called Sole Survivor, in which plane crash survivors share their stories.

Cichan – who is thought to have survived because her mum shielded her body – said: “It’s kind of hard not to think about it. When I look in the mirror, I have visual scars.”

Cichan herself suffered serious injuries, including a broken leg, third degree burns, a broken skull and broken collarbone. After the crash, Cichan had to have four skin grafts.

She was then raised by her uncle Franklin Lumpkin and her aunt Rita – who is the sister of her late mum – and they made sure to shelter Cichan from media attention after the crash.

Cichan eventually left hospital after seven weeks and grew up in Alabama.

Of finding the little girl, Thiede previously said: “I heard that faint cry a baby doll makes. I looked to my right and I could see an arm, kind of bent, coming out of a chair.”

Thiede was even at Cichan’s wedding many years later and said of the special day: “To see her come down the aisle, my heart, I lost it really. Just to see her in person was something.”

‘Alien’ Hand Found On Beach, Scientists Confirm It Is Not Human

A skeletal hand appendage washed up in Brazil this week — and a horrified couple was shore it was “alien bones.”

Leticia Gomes Santiago and her boyfriend Devanir Souza were taking a romantic stroll on the beach when they happened upon it.

The pair filmed the hand — found in the sands of Ilha Comprida, São Paulo State, Brazil — next to Santiago’s flip flop as a size reference, noting how “big” it was.

“We think it is not human because of the size and amount of bones,” Santiago said. “What could it possibly be?”

It could have belonged to some sort of aquatic mammal, or, they mused, something not of this world. So, of course Santiago sought out social media experts to discover the truth.

“We don’t know what animal it is, and if it’s an alien, even worse,” she posted to her followers.

One commenter proceeded to joke that it could be the beloved extraterrestrial from Steven Spielberg’s beloved 1982 film about a pint-sized alien, or perhaps it belonged to a creature from prehistoric times.

“Looks like ET’s hand,” one person quipped.

“[It’s a] mermaid hand!” argued another.

“Might as well be a dinosaur bone!” stated someone else.

“Take it to a biologist, because this isn’t normal,” one sane person advised — and that’s just what they did.

Eric Comin, a marine biologist, claimed the eerie hand probably belonged to a cetacean, a group of sea mammals which includes dolphins, porpoises and whales, hence the size, Jam Press reported.

His deductions were made upon first glance, noting that more testing would be necessary to exactly determine which creature of the sea the mysterious flipper belonged to — although he’s convinced it’s probably a dolphin.

Solely based on the images he’s seen, the rate of decomposition told the biologist the mammal was most likely dead in the water 18 months ago.

People who discover remains, he added, should report it to the Cananéia Research Institute (IPEC).

Odd or unknown animals of the sea — or parts of them — are known to wash up on shores, like last month, when an unidentified “globster” was discovered on an Oregon beach.

The mysterious creature from the deep looks like a massive blob and smelled like “decomposing mammal,” according to the local who stumbled across it.

“We always prioritize leaving the bones on the beach so it does not interfere with the cycling of nutrients within the ecosystem,” Henrique Chupill, the spokesperson for IPEC, told Jam Press.

“Eventually, when there is some scientific interest, we collect them to be used in studies. If they are recently-deceased animals, we collect them to perform necropsies and identify the cause of death.”

Judge is Caught “Smoking, Semi-Naked and Slurring Words” in Bed During Zoom Trial (VIDEO)

A judge seen in bed during a Zoom hearing semi-naked, smoking and allegedly slurring words has been suspended.

Colombian Vivian Polania, 34, quickly switched off her laptop’s camera after she was alerted she could be seen in her underwear.

But the 33-second video – taken during a trial to decide if a car bomb terror suspect should be bailed – went viral.

After the incident an official complained was filed and she has barred until February 2023.

Judge Polania caused a storm two years ago when she posted photos showing off her muscles, honed during gym sessions.

Other images in a tiny G-string showed off tattoos on her back and bottom.

At the time, she said she was proud to be ‘braless and open-minded’, adding: ‘Not all judges, lawyers and state employees are the same.

‘What I wear or show on social media is my decision and I’m not going to change a thing.’

Colombia’s National Commission of Judicial Ethics criticised her ‘contempt for the investiture of her position’.

It added: ‘We find no justification for the judge to have presented herself in such deplorable conditions.

‘She had the facilities of her own home to prepare for a public hearing appropriately and with the respect it deserved.’
