They were even certain they knew who the killer was. Regardless, lack of evidence and one critical missing person rendered them unable to make an arrest of the person they were “99% sure” committed the evil acts.

$10 million worth of 1890 gold coins found buried in couple

It’s amazing when even a single Gold Rush era gold coin is found, let alone a thousand of them. But that’s the sort of phenomenal find that a Sierra, Nevada couple ran across last month and they didn’t have to go far to find it – it was buried right in their backyard. Dubbed the Saddle Ridge Hoard, it is believed to be the biggest hoard of gold coins ever unearthed in the United States. Valued at $10 million dollars, the find has left some wondering if the newly discovered cache is long-lost stolen loot from an unsolved San Francisco Mint heist in 1901.

Page from ancient Coptic manuscript which says Jesus could change his shape at will

A set of 1,200-year-old ancient Coptic Egyptian texts was discovered many years ago in the library of an abandoned monastery in the Egyptian desert. The text is interesting, not because it proposes that the strange series of events really happened, but rather because it demonstrates what some people believed at that time – and apparently two-thousand years ago some people thought Jesus would, on occasion, make himself invisible and change his appearance at will, a “shapeshifter” so-to-speak.

In Hangzhou, China, citizens walk up to the multi-story Kandi Car garage, insert their credit card, push a few buttons, and viola, a fully-charged electric vehicle is retrieved via robotic arms, tracks, and elevators and deposited at their feet.
