UFO Awareness Day


On 2nd July 1947, a United States Army Air Forces balloon crashed near Roswell, New Mexico. People took great interest in the crashed ‘flying disc’ however, the US military stated that it was merely a conventional weather balloon. In the 1990s the true nature of the ‘flying disc’ was revealed. And the Roswell UFO incident was considered to be the most famous UFO incident. Here is a list of some other UFO sightings. Read more to find out…

The Lights above New Jersey Turnpike (2001)

On 14th July 2001, a group of motorists stopped alongside a highway and noticed strange yellow-orange lights in V formation. The sight continued for around 15 minutes. At first it was not paid much attention but later the New York Strange Phenomenon Investigators (NY-SPI) claimed to receive FAA radar data that corroborated the UFO sightings.


The sightings at Stephenville (2008)

The residents of the small town of Stephenville, Texas noticed something interesting in the sky on 8 January 2008. They saw a horizontal arc of white lights that gradually bent in vertical parallel lights. The unidentified flying object was claimed to be flying at a speed of 3000 miles per hour but did not produce any sound.

East Coast GO FAST video (2015)



The news of this sighting leaked 2 years later in 2017. A video emerged, revealing an encounter between an F/A-18 Super Hornet and an Unidentified Flying Object. The craft was very fast moving, white oval, about 45-feet long without wings or exhaust plumes. The pilots tracked the object at 25,000 feet above the Atlantic Ocean. No explanation emerged about this sighting ever after.

So, on 2nd July every year, people celebrates UFO day, to spread awareness about flying saucers. All you have to do is look at the sky from time to time, and who knows, the next UFO might be noticed by you.

Yawn I see, yawn I do

Have you ever felt the urge to yawn when you’ve just seen someone do so? Well, you’re not alone. “Contagious Yawning” is an actual thing and has been observed in humans, chimpanzees, cats, dogs, etc. Don’t believe me? Try watching a video of someone yawning. Chances are that you felt the urge to yawn yourself. If you did, congratulations, you’ve just been infected by contagious yawning.

Read More


Don’t worry, it’s not some highly infectious and deadly disease that you’ll have to remain in quarantine for. The worst you can do is yawn, and make others yawn also(I guess it is kind of like a superpower then).

The exact theory behind what causes contagious yawning is still unknown. Some researchers say that those people who have a high emotional quotient(EQ), i.e, those who can empathise more, tend to yawn when they see someone do so. While other scientists have challenged the theory and have said that the age factor plays an important role in contagious yawning with it having a negligible effect on the elderly. Psychiatrists and neuroscientists have also established that people with mental disorders like autism and schizophrenia tend to be less susceptible to contagious yawning.

To sum it up, there is still no perfect explanation behind why yawning is contagious. Who knows, maybe it is a secret language between earthly organisms which we can use in the event of an alien invasion.

What’s a Pun?

A pun makes use of words that have more than one meaning, or words that sound similar but have different meanings, to humorous effect. For example:

The two pianists had a good marriage. They always were in a chord.

I was struggling to figure out how lightning works, but then it struck me.

The grammarian was very logical. He had a lot of comma sense.
