THE BASEMENT’S CABINET OF CURIOSITIES: Roswell Alien Found!

You do not have to be a flying saucer fanatic to know the word Roswell and what happened there in 1947. If you have been under a rock and unaware of the story, to put it simply, there is overwhelming proof that an alien space craft crashed in Roswell, New Mexico in July of 1947. Left behind was a gigantic debris field and three alien bodies, all about three to four feet tall, and one was still alive. As soon as it was announced that we had captured a disc, the story was changed saying that it was actually a weather balloon, despite the fact that the military that went to the crash had years of experience with weather balloons and still said it was an alien craft. This has been one of the longest covered-up secrets in United States history and considering that all files of the case were “accidentally” incinerated, it is doubtful that we will ever know the truth; until now.

Cryptozoology is the study of hidden animals. These are either animals that were thought to have gone extinct in the past and yet are still being seen today or they are animals that no one has ever caught or officially recorded. Most accounts are based on eyewitness testimony or out of focus photos and though many reports seem bizarre or too good to be true, once in a while a new (or old) animal is discovered (or rediscovered) proving the eyewitnesses correct.

The coelacanth, thought to be extinct for millions of years, was rediscovered in 1937.

THE BASEMENT’S CABINET OF CURIOSITIES: Pedro the Mountain Mummy

Welcome to the second installment of my Cabinet of Curiosities, this time showcasing what is known as Pedro, the Mountain Mummy. Just recently, while going through some old boxes, I came across what appeared to be a glass bell jar wrapped heavily in bubble wrap and upon opening it, found Pedro, forgetting that I even had him! He came into my possession many, many years ago and though he is not the original mummy found in 1932, he is still very interesting nonetheless.
