Where's Mulder and Scully When You Need Them?

Flashes of light, a big boom, something in the sky...oh my!
So far many have seen it, but it's a mystery as to what it is.
Reports of a bright light and in some places, an explosion-like sound, poured into law-enforcement offices across eastern Virginia, Maryland and North Carolina last night.

The phone rang off the hook at the National Weather Service's Wakefield station. A meteorologist this morning says after checking all of their data it was nothing meteorlogical in nature.

All of the reports dealt with incidents that occurred about 9:45 p.m.

So what was it? Leave your thoughts below.

The truth is out there.

This Story Stinks!

An eighth-grader in Lakeland FL has been suspended from riding the school bus for three days after being accused of passing gas.

"Jonathan passes gas on the bus to make the other children laugh and it is so stink [sic] that you can't breathe after he does it," the bus driver wrote on a misbehavior form.

The kid says it wasn’t him and blamed his friend that sits in front of him.

School District Rep, said there is no specific rule that prohibits students from passing gas on the bus – BUT (and that’s a big but) "There's a rule against disturbing the bus,"

If the flatulence becomes excessive, then Corbett said the bus driver has the responsibility to report it to the school administrator.

Of course the whole matter is under review – the kids father said that the allegations are ridiculous and that its all just hot air…no pun intended…or is it?
I guess you could say he'll be the "butt of all the jokes".

A Hole in One? or A Huge Hole in One?

AUGUSTA — A golfer looking for an errant tee shot found a half-buried hand grenade near the eighth fairway of the Augusta Municipal Golf Course.

The Richmond County sheriff’s bomb squad was called to the scene after Wednesday’s discovery and detonated the war relic.

Bomb squad investigator Charles Mulherin says recent heavy rains washing down a hill probably unearthed the Mk 2, or “pineapple” grenade, used by the U.S. military from the final months of World War I until the Vietnam War.

Mulherin says he did not know if the grenade was live, so the bomb squad detonated it.

During World War I, the land that became the golf course was part of Camp Hancock, a sprawling Army base that included woods unsuitable for tents because of a ravine.

What Movies are REALLY Safe for Kids

If you've always looked at the rating given to a movie and thought "I wonder if it's under rated or over rated?" Well know there's a web site that not only rates the movies but gives very detailed descriptions of the scenes and rates them in 3 ways;
Sex & Nudity, Violence & Gore, and Profanity
They do it on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the most extreme.
So if it's older movies or the stuff that's been out for a week, "Kids-In-Mind" is the place to check out. CLICK HERE NOW to go to the site.
