This weekend is the 140th anniversary of the Great Chicago Fire. Despite the tales of it being caused by Mrs. O'Leary's cow, the investigative board following the fire never identified the cause.

But another factor suggests an intriguing, out of this world possibility. The same day of the Great Chicago Fire, another great fire occurred to the north in Peshtigo, Wisconsin. The Great Peshtigo Fire as it came to be known, consumed 1.2 million acres of forest (or twice the area of Rhode Island) and killed approximately 2,500 people.

And on the same day there were other large fires in the Lake Michigan region -- Holland and Manistee Michigan burned as well as Port Huron.

That such large fires all occurred on the same day tempts one to consider the possibility of a common cause. It turns out that witnesses that day also reported "balls of fire" falling from the sky and events of seeming spontaneous ignition. Well, in 2004, retired engineer, Bob Wood concluded that perhaps the fires were all started by fragments of the periodic comet Biela. See:

A century and a half later, it is doubtful that we will ever know what happened on that day, but just perhaps the cause come from the sky.

Sadly, this was to be expected.. Scammers taking advantage of the death of Steve Jobs.

It's impossible to express how sad many people in the technology world feel at the news of the death of Steve Jobs. Sickeningly, scammers were waiting to take advantage of the bad news.

If your brain works normally

This is another example of an amazing illusion!!! The last sentence is so true.

If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, the dots will remain only one color, pink.

However if you stare at the black '+ ' in the center, the moving dot turns to green.
Now, concentrate on the black ' + ' in the center of the picture. After a short period, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will see only a single green dot rotating.

It's amazing how our brain works. There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don't disappear. This should be proof enough, we don't always see what we think we see.
Reshare this to all of your friends and amaze them.

This video of a massive rocket blasting off from Earth is incredible.

The really amazing footage (where the rocket takes off) starts around 2:15 — the first couple of minutes focus primarily on the setup.
