News – World’s Oldest Father: 94 Year Old Ramjit Raghav

94 yr old Ramajit Raghav has claimed the title of world’s oldest father. The women we really should be giving credit to is his 54 yr old wife Shakuntala Devi who gave birth to their first baby. I wonder how old the oldest mother is?

Both Ramajit and Shakuntala are extremely happy and excited, considering baby Vikaramjeet was like a gift from god (God’s gift) and they planning on having a second child for next year. Although their ages are past the normal fertility period they feel they can pull it off.

Ramajit, Former wrestler, strongly believes that his health will keep him around for many years to come. He strives to see his soon grow up: “I will die only if a black snake bites me and that is very unlikely. Visit me after ten years and you will find me in the same appearance. My daily diet comprises three litres of milk, half a kilo of almonds and half a kilo of ghee (clarified butter).”

Ramajit, 94 years old according to the paper records, but he actually claims hes 100 years of age. Still, doctors say that, although it can’t be ruled out, having a baby at this age is a extremely unlikely.

Astronaut Carving Ieronimus Cathedral

This mystery involves a carving of what appears to be an astronaut, found on the outside of a cathedral in Spain. Cathedral Ieronimus was built in 1102 AD by Episcope de Salamanca. Could this be a carving from someone who’s been to the future? Could this be some bit of technology that existed back in 1100 AD?

In fact its non of the above. In 1992 the Cathedral Ieronimus was renovated to add some additional modern and contemporary motifs. The reason for these motifs was in the tradition of the cathedral builders and restorers, they include contemporary motifs among older ones as a way of signing their work. The builder at the time, Jeronimo Garcia, chose an astronaut as a symbol of the twentieth century. This obviously debunks any and all suspicions of someone sent from the future. SOLVED!

What should I post about?? Sinkhole??

Now this morning when I asked my buddy what I should post about and he suggested something I didn’t think my readers would appreciate to much. I look back at the monitor after discussing the topic with TJ and I see this image of a hole that looks like the door way to hell in the middle of some town or village. Come to find out its a Sinkhole, now whats a Sinkhole? So of course I turn to my trusty friend Google for the answer. Now according to Wikipedia (which we all know isn’t the most accurate at time’s) a Sinkhole is a natural depression or hole in the Earth’s surface caused by a processes called Karst. Now I guess the Karst processes is the chemical dissolution of carbonate rocks or suffosion processes. What ever that means. I just wanted to know how a hole appears in the middle of a village. So as I read on, it appears that the natural depression or hole in the surface is caused by the removal of soil/bedrock (sometimes both), by water. Pretty interesting stuff. Here’s a few images of the most impressive Sinkholes.

Guatemala Sinkhole – 2007

Apparently several homes and people were taken in by this Sinkhole on February 23, 2007. Three people are confirmed missing in Guatemala City according to officials.
