Web Pulse: A cop, the World Cup and Bigfoot

A North Carolina man says he called Bigfoot out of the woods.

People searched for bizarre videos on the Web on Wednesday.

 - "Cop punches woman" was typed into most search engines, calling up a cell phone video of a Seattle, Washington, police officer seen punching an alleged jaywalker in the face. Officer Ian Walsh has been temporarily reassigned and placed in a training unit to review police tactics, a department spokesman said.

- Vuvu means blood and zela means issuing from both ears. But whatever the vuvuzela's etymology, it's clear that the horn is annoying a lot of people. Fascination with the native South African instrument has reached beyond World Cup fans.  The Telegraph is reporting that a German engineer thinks the droning sound can be canceled by playing his 45-minute "inverse" sound wave which manipulated a recording of a game. Fast Company explained what EQ setting will drown out the horn. For those without tech savvy, we suggest ear plugs or the mute button.

- Speaking of horns, check out this jug-horn thingy that apparently called Bigfoot right out of them thar North Carolina woods. Tim Peeler thought he was calling coyotes, you know, as people do. But then a 10-foot-tall hairy "man looking person" emerged from the brush and scared him. Seems Sasquatch was after Peeler's dogs. The man claims he ordered the six-fingered giant to 'git!' So it got. Whew. The public is safe, for now.

    South africans love the Vuvuzela, and a man who blew into an annoying horn summoned a gorilla-man.

    COINSIDENCE?

    Today President Obama DID what no Republican lawmaker, nor Republican President has ever done NOR even tried.

    President Obama sat down with BP's Big Oil CEO and demanded a whopping 20 BILLION dollar escrow fund be set up to provide immediate funding to equipment, Gulf business, and Gulf resident Oil Spill related claims.

    As early as last week ALL of the Republican Lawmakers including House Congressional Minority John (drill baby drill) Boehner and US Senate Minority Leader Mitch (drill baby drill) McConnell who ALL stated that Federal Government AND BP needed to Pay for all the costs incurred. These crass and extremely callous comments spewing out of the mouths of the Republican leaders who have obstructed Unemployment benefits and a wide range of legislation over their hypocritical mantra of fiscal responsibility!

    Democratic President Obama from the beginning insisted that BP PAY for ALL of the damage, cleanup, claims, equipment and vessels needed to clean, correct and fix the damages incurred from BP's Crude Oil spill.

    Undoubtedly, with pre-existing lax and lame Gas and Oil laws written by Republican lawmakers over many decades severely limit liability and responsibility by Big Oil, Gas and Coal companys when accidents occur. AND Republican placed Federal Judges across the Gulf Region (50%) were elected directly with the help of Big Oil funding their campaigns. AND Bush jr. placed Big Oil's friend US Supreme Court Chief Justice into his jurist position.

    ALL of this, President Obama faced down with courage and conviction to force BP and its team of corporate Gas and Oil attorneys. It is likely President Obama had found evidence of neglect to follow reasonable safety regulations and President Obama suggested America would pull the extremely lucrative US Military Fuel contract from BP if BP didn't OK that enormous 20 BILLION dollar escrow account. Yes, that is hardball and that is why America needs a man such as President Obama and more Democratic lawmakers elected into public service.

    I believe 100% that these creatures are real, I am not saying this case of a Bigfoot like creature is a true being, but like some others, it could be. Folks need to understand that there are spiritual beings all around us, these creatures can take on physical flesh and blood form at will, and vanish at will. That is why there will never be any scientific proof of these cryptids of cryptozoology. You can read more about my views and read all about more of these creatures at: Unknown Creatures – http://www.unknown-creatures.com

    I get upset when people resist arrest by Police and the the Police are the bad guys. Two girls attacking an Officer over jay walking. Not a serious crime until one of the girls escalated it to a felony by grabbing the Officer. Only mistake the Officer made is he should have taken her to the ground and controlled.
