Shark That Ate 600 US Sailors

As the shark swam closer to the boat, seasoned skipper David Bond noticed the beast was about 14ft long and probably weighed more than 1,000lb.Then, just as silently as it had appeared, the giant predator sank slowly back into the deep.

The close encounter happened on Wednesday near Looe, off the southern coast of Cornwall. It was just one of a number of sightings last week that has prompted fears a great white shark may be ­lurking off the south-west tip of Britain.

While one maneater is enough to chill the bones of even the saltiest ­seadog, on Monday the respected Angling Times reported that a 10ft ­oceanic whitetip is also patrolling our waters.

The whitetip is notorious for targeting shipwreck survivors, most notably the unfortunate ­sailors who clung to wreckage of the USS Indianapolis after it was torpedoed during the Second World War in the Pacific Ocean.

In the hit 1975 film Jaws, ­Robert Shaw’s character Quint famously reveals he survived the USS ­Indianapolis frenzy and had hated sharks ever since.

Angling Times said scientists in the UK and US had studied a ­photograph of bite marks on a blue shark caught off Falmouth and concluded a whitetip was the culprit.Shark expert David Turner believes the warm summer has attracted sharks not normally seen in British seas. He said: “The water temperature is higher than it normally is on account of the decent weather we have had this year. That could have attracted large predatory sharks that are not usually found off our coast.

“This summer has definitely seen more shark sightings than previous years but we are not quite sure why.”

The first of the latest sightings this summer of a suspected great white came on Tuesday when a giant shark swam alongside a ­lobster boat for a few seconds.

It was the briefest of glimpses but the fisherman on board said he had never seen a shark that size before.

A day later, Mr Bond and Ian Harbage aboard the shark fishing boat Mystique were scanning the sea when the giant fin broke the water. An ominous dark shape appeared twice, about 75 yards from the boat, before slipping away. By the time Mr Harbage had gone to fetch a camera, it was too late.

Later that afternoon a third fishing crew were stunned to see a huge fish breach the water and as they got closer they ­estimated the fin to be easily six or seven feet away from the tip of the tail.

In all three cases, the skippers discounted a harmless plankton-eating basking shark, regular giants off Cornwall in summer. They all believe a great white is a possibility yet, perhaps worried about being teased back in the pub, will not say so.

The only other explanation is that it could be a big porbeagle or a mako, relatives of the great white, but they very rarely exceed 10ft on this side of the Atlantic.

Mr Turner, 66, said: “A great white has to be a serious ­contender. David and Ian said they got the impression from the fin that what they saw could have been an enormous porbeagle but they didn’t see the fin in profile only at an angle and, to me, it sounds far too big to be a porgie or a mako shark.

Fishermen say they have never seen any shark nearly as big before

David Turner

“Another skipper who saw both fin and tip of the tail said the two were at least six or seven foot apart, meaning the total length of the shark must have been 13 to 14ft. He said it ­probably weighed about 1,000lb.“All the reports last week were from around Looe and within a couple of days. In one case it came ­alongside one of the boats but the skipper couldn’t identify it.

“Shark fishermen are very wary of reporting great whites, as they are concerned they won’t be taken seriously. Yet all who have seen this monster, and they have been fishing these waters for years, say they have never seen any shark nearly as big before.”

As the Sunday Express revealed last week a number of blue sharks have been caught over the past couple of weeks with strange bite marks. Cornish fisherman, Nigel Hodge, caught a 60lb blue but watched in horror as another shark, described as being about 10ft in length attacked it off the coast of Falmouth.

The attack was initially thought to have been by a great white or a larger blue shark but photos of the bite marks were shown to UK and US experts, who believe it to be an oceanic whitetip.

They were branded “the most dangerous of all sharks” by famed oceanograper Jacques Cousteau and although normally found in warmer waters, but one was caught in 2004 off the western coast of Sweden.

Recalling his battle with the shark, Mr Hodge told Angling Times: “I played it for a while before pulling it alongside my boat where I got a good look at it before it broke free. I pulled the smaller fish aboard and took photos so we could find out what attacked it. If you were a carp angler it would be like reeling in a ­specimen fish and it getting snatched by a ­crocodile.”

Nigerian Parents Arrested After Teen Son Dies During Religious Fast

Published

A Nigerian couple have been arrested in the US after their 15-year-old son reportedly died during a 40-day religious fast.

Kehinde Omosebi, 49, and Titilayo Omosebi, 48, of Reedsburg, were on Tuesday charged with child neglect causing death and child neglect causing great bodily harm.

The father was said to have walked to the Reedburg police station on Sunday, to report his son had died on Friday, Chief Timothy Becker said.

Investigators who went to the Omosebi home reportedly had to force their way in, as the doors was padlocked on the inside. No food was discovered in the home. They found the “extremely emaciated and deceased” teenager, and also found a gaunt 11-year-old child, along with his mother, Titilayo, who was also undernourished, according to the report.

The father, Kehinde, told authorities that the family began fasting on July 19, and that he was a “religious minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries,” which is believed by police to have been made up.

The mother and 11-year-old were transported to a hospital. The mother reportedly refused medical treatment due to religious reasons, and was taken to the Sauk County Jail.

The child remains in protective custody at Children’s Hospital in Madison, while, according to Becker, the parents are eating while in jail.

This Illuminati Conspiracy Theory Of Celebrities With Black Eyes Will Shock You..

Published

on

A bizarre conspiracy theory has emerged suggesting that celebrities seen sporting a black left eye are part of the Illuminati. Former US President George W. Bush, along with the Pope, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew, have all also been photographed with black eyes.

According to some conspiracy theorists, the black left eye is part of a cult or ‘Illuminati’ high-level initiation ritual during which the pledger is said to be forced to ‘eat pain’ in a quest to become more powerful.

Author and internet radio show host Sherry Shriner –  who wrote the book Interview With The Devil, in which she claimed to converse with Lucifer – has spoken of the link between these black eyes and ‘soul scalping’.

According to Shriner, government leaders, people on TV with their own shows and hundreds of popular entertainers have sold their souls to Satan.

‘You cannot be on TV now, without signing on the dotted line. The bizarre recurrence of facial bruises on Illuminati politicians and entertainers has resulted in speculation that their souls have been replaced in a satanic ritual called “soul scalping”,’ she said.

Shriner, who died earlier this year, believed all the powerful people in the world have been soul scalped.

She said that this can one done in a number of ritualistic ways, all of which result in a ‘possession’, whereby the human soul is removed and the body taken over by the demonic entity.

In conspiracy circles, this process is also known as a ‘walk-in’. Some people believe the blackened eye is a result of soul scalping.

Meanwhile, celebrities have come up with various explanations for how they got their black eyes over the years.

The Pope was said to have hit his eye when riding through the streets of Cartagena, Columbia in the ‘Pope-mobile’ last year.

Several news reports stated that he had made a joke about the injury, saying that he’d been punched.

Conspiracy theorists have pointed out that even members of the royal family have been spotted with black eyes over the years.

Some researchers suggest a link between the bearers of black eyes to the worship of the Egyptian sun god Horus, whose left eye was black and represented the moon and whose right eye was white and represented the sun.
