I might as well get this Irish giant added. I'd seen the picture several times when sifting through information about Giants and eventually, I ran into a page with information about it.

For those who find it hard to believe that Giants existed in our distant past, one only has to look at this rare photograph obtained from the December, 1895 issue of the British ‘Strand’ Magazine (Exhibit 13) with the following quote:

“Pre-eminent among the most extraordinary articles ever held by a railway company is the FOSSILIZED Irish giant, which is at this moment lying at the London and North-Western Railway Company’s Broad-street goods depot, and a photograph of which is reproduced here…This monstrous figure is reputed to have been dug up by a Mr. Dyer whilst prospecting for iron ore in County Antrim. The principal measurements are: entire length, 12 ft 2 in.; girth of chest, 6 ft 6 in.; and length of arms, 4 ft 6 in. There are six toes on the right foot. The gross [fossilized] weight is 2 tons 15 cwt.; so that it took half a dozen men and a powerful crane to place this article of lost property in position [leaning against a box-car] for the Strand magazine….”

From the first link, in the quote, the author theorizes about this fossilized Irish Giant:

Ignatius Donnelly, an Atlantean enthusiast, like me, supports my theory that the Irish Giant shown in the photograph was a godlike member (little g) from the legendary ‘Ice Giant Race,’ called the Asas who roamed across Ireland.

Speaking of Ireland, there is another page speaking of Giants, and druids, and a land at the 'North Axis'... stories from the book of Enoch, which I've heard of but never read, and Admiral Byrd.

Basically, if they're science fiction, I don't care because I like good science fiction.

Enjoyable reading, IMO.

The main site has gone 404. Here is the archived page.

In the upper section
Giants I:
One of the latest accounts of a race of giants that occupied Europe comes from the middle ages and involves a surprising figure: Saint Christopher.

While modern stories of St. Christopher simply make him out as an ordinary man, or perhaps a somewhat homely man, those who actually saw him had a different story.

According to his peers, he was a giant, belonging to a tribe of dog-headed, cannibalistic giants.

Jacques de Voragine in The Golden Legend wrote of St. Christopher:

"He was of gigantic stature, had a terrifying mien, was twelve coudees tall.”

In the lower section
Giants II:
In further confirmation of Admiral Byrd's discovery are reports of individuals who claimed they had entered the north polar opening, as many Arctic explorers did without knowing they did, and penetrated far enough into it to reach the Subterranean World in the hollow interior of the Earth.

Dr. Nephi Cottom of Los Angeles reported that one of his patients, a man of Nordic descent, told him the following story:

"I lived near the Arctic Circle in Norway. One summer my friend and I made up our minds to take a boat trip together, and go as far as we could into the north country. So we put one month's food provisions in a small fishing boat, and with sail and also a good engine in our boat, we set to sea.

4. At the end of one month we had travelled far into the north, beyond the Pole and into a strange new country. We were much astonished at the weather there.

Warm, and at times at night it was almost too warm to sleep. Then we saw something so strange that we both were astonished. Ahead of the warm open sea we were on what looked like a great mountain.

Into that mountain at a certain point the ocean seemed to be emptying. Mystified, we continued in that direction and found ourselves sailing into a vast canyon leading into the interior of the earth. We kept sailing and then we saw what surprised us - a sun shining inside the earth!”

5. Several of the inner earth inhabitants - huge giants - detected our boat on the river, and were quite amazed...

1. The presence of the open sea in the Northland is also explained. Olaf Jansen claims that the northern aperture, intake or hole, so to speak, is about fourteen hundred miles across. In connection with this, let us read what Explorer Nansen 'writes, on page 288 of his book:
“I have never had such a splendid sail. On to the north steadily north, with a good wind, as fast as stream and sail can take us, an open sea mile after mile, watch after watch, through these unknown regions, always clearer and clearer of ice, one might almost say: 'How long will it last?'

The eye always turns to the northward as one paces the bridge. It is gazing into the future. But them is always the same dark sky ahead which means open sea.”

Again, the Norwood Review of England, in its issue of May 10, 1884, says: “We do not admit that there is ice up to the Pole - once inside the great ice barrier, a new world breaks upon the Explorer, the climate is mild like that of England, and, afterward, balmy as the Greek Isles.”.....

2. My name is Olaf Jansen. I am a Norwegian, although I was born in the little seafaring Russian town of Uleaborg, on the eastern coast of the Gulf of Bothnia, the northern arm of the Baltic Sea.

I was in my nineteenth year when we started on what proved to be our last trip as fishermen, and which resulted in the strange story that shall be given to the world, - but not until I have finished my earthly pilgrimage...

There was a tradition my father explained, that still farther northward was a land more beautiful than any that mortal man had ever known, and that it was inhabited by the Chosen.

3. My youthful imagination was fired by the ardor, zeal and religious fervor of my good father, and I exclaimed: 'why not sail to this goodly land?
The sky is fair, the wind favorable and the sea open."....

The compass, which we had fastened back in its place, in fear of another storm, was still pointing due north, and moving on its pivot just as it had in Stockholm.

The dipping of the needle had ceased. What could this mean? Then, too, our many days of sailing had certainly carried us far past the North Pole.

And yet the needle continued to point north. We were sorely perplexed, for surely our direction was now south.....

4. Along the banks great forests miles in extent could be seen stretching away on the shoreline. The trees were of enormous size.

We landed after anchoring near a sandy beach, and waded ashore, and were rewarded by finding a quantity of nuts that were very palatable and satisfying to hunger, and a welcome change from the monotony of our stock of provisions....

It was about the first of September, over five months we calculated, since our leave taking from Stockholm Suddenly we were frightened almost out of our wits by hearing in the far distance the singing of people. Very soon thereafter we discovered a huge ship gliding down the river directly toward us.

Those aboard were singing in one mighty chorus that, echoing from bank to bank, sounded like a thousand voices, filling the whole universe with quivering melody.
The accompaniment was played on stringed instruments not unlike our harps.

It was a larger ship than any we had ever seen, and was differently constructed....

The immense craft paused, and almost immediately a boat was lowered and six men of gigantic stature rowed to our little fishing-sloop.

They spoke to us in a strange language. We knew from their manner, however, that they were not unfriendly. They talked a great deal among themselves, and one of them laughed immoderately, as though in finding us a queer discovery had been made. One of them spied our compass, and it seemed to interest them more than any other part of our sloop.....

1. "They seem to be kindly disposed," I replied, "although what terrible giants! They must be the select six of the kingdom's crack regiment. Just look at their great size...."

2. The surprise of my father and myself was indescribable when, amid the regal magnificence of a spacious hall, we were finally brought before the Great High Priest, ruler over all the land. He was richly robed, and much taller than those about him, and could not have been less than fourteen or fifteen feet in height.

The immense room in which we were received seemed finished in solid slabs of gold thickly studded with jewels of amazing brilliancy....

3. I remember hearing my father remark that the giant race of people in the land of 'The Smoky God had almost as accurate an idea of the geography of the "outside" surface of the earth as had the average college professor in Stockholm.......

“That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;”
Phillipian 2:10

“And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.”
Revelations 5:3

“Seven rivers I beheld upon earth, greater than all rivers, one of which takes its course from the west; it to a great sea its water flows.

Two comes from the north to the sea, there waters flowing into the Erythraean sea, on the east. And with respect to the remaining four, they take their course in the cavity of the north”

I was really saddened today to learn that the egiptologia site from which the excavation pictures, including those of giant skeletens was no longer there and had disappeared without a trace. I'd posted the images from the excavation in several different places, linking the pictures to the jpg url, and they were gone from posts.

I just about wanted to cry when all I could find to salvage were these tiny google thumbnails:

George, have U never seen that skeleton before?
if U look at Wiolawas page on these flyers,
she has a diagram of their wing bones:

Thanks robin, I hadn't seen that one before. It's a little different than the first one in the Giants have wings? thread. My thinking there was that the extra bone on the forearm was what wio was basing her observation on and I thought it was like a chicken wing, with that extra bone there in the center part. After finding and looking at the whole body I noted the legs had the extra bone, too, and after looking at human skeletens I noted that they also, had these extra bones on their arms and legs as illustrated in the following:

But, what we see on the page you linked is a whole nother story as it points out this bone structure:

Wow. http://www.egiptologia.pl is history... just checked it. It is where many of the Giants images came from. The whole site gone.

I had to put 'define golem' into search to get a better idea of the meaning of the word because I really didn't know. The wiki page is interesting.

My brothers used to like to tie strings around the legs of metallic looking beetles that look like the first three here and fly them around in a circle. While looking for images of them I ran across silver and then gold beetles sometime after reading a forum post about someone seeing gold beetles in his garden and worrying whether they would do any damage. Lovely aren't they?

For sure, paul, it is an eye opener. It gives us pause to stop, think, and consider... what the real deal is.

It looks like the person is facing left. I've been keeping my eye on this thread. I didn't want to comment until I'd searched for and found a thread at DI in which it turned out the subject was an iphone app with which you could add ghosts to photos you take with the phones and freak people out. I put it through JPEGsnoop and filtered it, then someone suggested it looked like an iphone app, then another posted pictures of iphone apps from a page advertising the download for it. This one was taken by a Sony Ericson by what I read in a post above and I think the phone apps only apply to iphone. I just wanted to be a bit cautious about it.

Here's the DI thread:


hmm, or maybe they do have a similar app. Thought I'd better do a search before posting. It's not showing the pictures of what they've got though.


Massive quake hits Japan
Japan crisis to hit hay

Kate Dowler | March 30, 2011

HAY exporters to the lucrative Japanese market are nervously watching the continuing nuclear crisis.

Australia's largest exporter, Gilmac, says the market is not yet affected by Japan's tragic earthquake, but continuing nuclear woes remain a threat.

Japan imports 90 per cent of the export hay from Australia, the second-largest global fodder exporting nation behind the US.

Exporters fear any radiation contamination of food, or a loss in the confidence of the safety of local produce, might hit livestock and milk production in Japan, and this could slash hay imports.

Many Japanese dairy farmers are dumping milk because they can't access markets, but they are continuing to buy low-grade hay to keep their cows alive.

Gilmac managing director Munro Patchett said that for business "the biggest issue could be concerns about the safety of Japanese produce".

"But it is too early to say what will happen, until the nuclear situation is under control," he said.

"If there's a radiation scare, Japan does have a (milk) quota system, so if some of the cow population is affected in one place, they could increase production elsewhere in the country."

And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.I have read several times that Reptilians are made from Clay and Humans from Iron

And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

I believe this saying is backwards look what it is telling us it is made of iron and mire clay mixed together but this kingdom will not gel ....humans are the miry clay..we where made from earth..so the iron is imo demonic. they are more powerful than us. also Daniel tells us quite clearly what ever it is..it is going to mix its self with the seed of man..there is nothing else that this could mean..this is a world kingdom of mixed humans and demons. We know from both Daniel and Revelation this kingdom will not last ..because Jesus steps in before all should die. Daniel is told to seal up these words..he doesnt even understand them himself..God tells him when the time is right..the meaning of this message would be understood by his people.

The shroud of the dark-side has fallen

Watching the top 20 countdown of Hollywood Murders from the past I noticed mostly every star or person who was married to a star that committed the murders was on heroin or cocaine, in which they allowed themselves to be taken over by demonic spirits. They themselves had opened the gateway by their own choice. Just as the columbine massacre.
But in this case the kids were part human and part machine,because man had mixed humans not with demons because he cant ,but with machine.

Chalk one up for Gorilla199

yeah, I was just coming to search for that phrase:
"As you saw iron mixed with ceramic clay, they will mingle with the seed of men; but they will not adhere to one another, just as iron does not mix with clay." Dan 2:43 (NKJ)

I've read djinn are made from the smokeless fire or flame and that angels are made of light and people made from clay. So, I don't know where iron would go to any of it except as a metaphor. As for clay, thinking about the pic of Sarah Palin blowing a kiss in one picture, and the image of a head in another... maybe even Michelle Obama with her hand missing and only a knob where the hand should be... put me in mind of clay, as they can model themselves, fashion themselves as they please. In that respect, the shape shifters remind me of clay. Humans don't remind me of iron or clay really...

I have observed that reptilians/djinn like to hang out with other reptilians/djinns in a close, intimate way. Like when I get in the photo stream of one I find the friends connected, etc., are also reptilians/djinn. It's understandable.

I hope you come back round and add to the convo's wathup, haven't seen much of you for a while. I hope you're doing ok.

epona, please, I welcome you to show us what you've got. You're welcome to use any of the pictures posted here as well to tell why you think it is just a normal long exposure. If you'd like, you could provide a picture of your own that you didn't even have to try to do, or did try to do for comparison? It would be an interesting lesson.

Nothing is written in stone. I'm only using my own experience and eye for what I think is anomalous, or just something to think about the why's and wherefore's of, and sharing what I've spotted and grabbed stills of because it's interesting and curious and something to ponder and consider, even investigate.

You're always welcome to bring something new to the table.

When people move they blur folks! Come on, anyone can do that, anyone. Heck, I can do it not trying....no tripod.

C'mon folks? :o What have the folks done?? :o :o

What the slingshot shaped thing protruding from her back is, is anyone's guess.

No other filters except the one fade filter revealed a face.

I was comparing this image to an image from the Gable film of the woodchopper which I'd filtered and I thought to filter this one too. When I was running it through filters, in the 'fade filter' set of filters I saw a face... some other interesting traits too.

This best shows the face I made out:

Similar to a Barbie doll face

After looking a bit, it depended on which way I looked at it. I could make out about three faces, including a fishy looking face with red lips in the forehead area.

What ever this is projecting out of the head seems to be pointed in the direction of the little girl at the alter praying. Perhaps she(?) is energy harvesting or reading her thoughts, or 'prayers'.

I don't know what this is protruding from the genital area.

Massive quake hits Japan
Quake Area Residents Turn to Old Means of Communication to Keep Informed

Published: March 27, 2011

MIYAKO, Japan — To Ryo Orui, a high school junior, almost as frightening as the trembling of the earth or the wailing of tsunami sirens was the loss of his cellphone signal. When Japan’s big earthquake struck, Mr. Orui said, he felt a wave of panic at not being able to instantly contact loved ones, or get news on what was happening.

Posted Image
Miyako Disaster FM fills a need for very local information: stores that are open, goods that are for sale
and above all, messages from people looking for missing friends and family members.

So he jumped on his bicycle and pedaled around this tsunami-ravaged fishing port on Japan’s rugged northern coast to check on the safety of his parents and classmates.

“I felt so isolated,” said Mr. Orui, 17. “You don’t realize how much you rely on something until you lose it.”

Among the casualties of the magnitude 9.0 earthquake on March 11 were modern communications networks, which proved surprisingly vulnerable. Millions of people in eastern and northern Japan, including Tokyo, lost some or all cellphone service. A total of 1.3 million land lines and fiber-optic links also went dead.

While those interruptions pale in comparison to the human tragedy of the earthquake and tsunami — 27,000 people are dead or missing — the fragility of modern communications has emerged as one of the catastrophe’s sobering lessons.

In a technology-crazed nation where many people were glued to cellphones and accustomed to the Internet’s nearly instantaneous access to information, being cut off has proved disorienting and frightening. Many local governments in the hardest-hit areas, desperate to reach residents with important emergency information, have reached into the past for more tried-and-true means of communication, including radios, newspapers and even human messengers.

“When cellphones went down, there was paralysis and panic,” said Shoji Ogasawara, the head of emergency communications at Miyako’s City Hall, where the tsunami filled the first floor with foul-smelling mud. “Everyone was running around asking, ‘What happened to the nuclear plant? What happened to our town?’ ”

Throughout the country, people have turned to low-tech alternatives in their sometimes frantic search for news of loved ones in quake-affected areas. They have posted notices on bulletin boards and recorded tearful pleas on television. Even in Tokyo, normally a high-tech showplace for the nation, residents have turned to improvisation.

A small shop near Tokyo Station that specializes in products from Fukushima Prefecture, the site of the stricken nuclear plant, suddenly founded itself crowded by people who came because it carries newspapers from that region, which are hard to find elsewhere in Tokyo. About 500 people now visit the store each day to scan the newspapers’ lists of names of those in Fukushima’s refugee shelters, a manager, Yutaka Suzuki, said.

While Tokyo’s cellphone service has been restored, much of Miyako remains cut off from cellphones and the Internet.

The city’s main way of releasing the names of survivors of the disaster is to tape printed lists on the walls of City Hall. Lacking e-mail, officials deliver by hand these lists to other city offices for posting.

To warn residents in the event of another tsunami, Miyako relies on a network of more than 300 outdoor loudspeakers and sirens, some of which date to the end of World War II.

Waves from the 25-foot tsunami also knocked out roads and electricity. As a result, city officials say, radio has proven to be the most reliable medium to get information to survivors scattered over a wide area.

Within a week of the earthquake, a group of residents got permission from the city to create a small, emergency radio station, Miyako Disaster FM, which began broadcasting on Tuesday from what had been an unused room in a building run by the national farm cooperative. They equipped it with a few microphones on a folding table, and a transmitter whose signals reach up to nine miles.

While large stations provide national news, Miyako Disaster’s founder, Hisao Hashimoto, said his fills a need for very local information: stores that are open, goods that are for sale and above all, messages from people looking for missing friends and family members.

“In a disaster, radio has been the best way to get real-time information,” said Mr. Hashimoto, a 56-year-old magazine editor who said he had long dreamed of starting a radio station. “All you need is a hand-held receiver and batteries, or a car radio.”

On a recent morning, a wave of excitement filled the cramped studio: minutes after broadcasting a message from a relative looking for a woman named Noriko Yamaguchi, someone from a refugee center called to say Ms. Yamaguchi was there, and safe.

“These are the moments when you realize how much the community is depending on us,” said Ayako Kimura, 34, an office worker whose role as chief on-air personality has quickly transformed her into a local celebrity.

As Internet service is restored, Mr. Hashimoto has begun to use services like Twitter to spread word about the broadcasts. But radio, he said, remains the most important medium for another reason: the large number of elderly in Japan’s rapidly aging rural communities in the north who shy away from the Internet.

That was evident at Sokei Elementary School, one of 61 makeshift shelters housing Miyako’s some 4,900 survivors of the tsunami, where many of the 130 people sleeping on the gymnasium floor are middle-aged or older. Many said they had become loyal listeners of Miyako Disaster’s twice-daily broadcasts.

“My generation doesn’t use the Internet,” said Emiko Okubo, 57, a restaurant worker whose home was washed away.

Many shelters are also printing their own mini-newspapers. In his free time, Katsutoshi Maekawa, a city employee who works at the Sokei Elementary shelter, produces the Sokei Community Daily, a one-page newsletter that tells refugees here about events at the shelter and surrounding neighborhood.

“Paper can be read right away and passed around,” Mr. Maekawa, 34, said. “No turning on a monitor, no online connections, no keyboards.” Even younger Japanese like Mr. Orui, who prefer to go online, say weeks of being cut off from the Internet have made them realize how reliant they had become on new technologies that could be so easily disrupted.

“Cellphones and the Internet were the first things to go,” said Eri Itobata, 17, a high school student who volunteered to help Miyako Disaster radio. “Thankfully the old technologies were still around.”

Those are some fantastic pictures robby.

I tried filtering the giant robin. I wasn't able to enhance it much and what enhancing I did made it look as if it had only one eye. I mean, just looking at it it looks like a creature from the lagoon... a fish man or something. It does appear to carrying something that kind of looked like another creature to me. That something appeared to have an eye also and I could only see one eye.
