"It was staged!" insists Boston suspect's father and aunt

Shortly before 2:30 pm EST, news networks aired an interview with the aunt of alleged Boston Marathon bombers Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and Tamerlan Tsarnaev.  According to the aunt, she had called the FBI upon seeing the photos of the suspects and recognizing the two young Chechen men.  Her reason for calling was to inform the FBI that Tamerlan and Dzhokhar couldn't have been the bombers.  She then told reporters that she believed that her nephews had been set up.  When asked by one reporter who would be behind such a conspiracy, the aunt stopped just short of saying that it was the government, and dodged the question.

These cryptic remarks came on the heels of similar strange and unnerving comments made by Anzor Tsarnaev, the father of the suspected Boston Marathon bombers.  In an interview with ABC News, Anzor stated that if his younger son was killed, that "all hell would break loose".

"If they kill my second child, I will know that it is an inside job, a hit job. The police are to blame," Anzor Tsarnaev told ABC News. "Someone, some organization is out to get them."  He then added that the kids were set up, and added that neither had any experience with explosives.

Were the Tsarnaev brothers set up simply because they were Muslim?

The authorities, of course, believe that they have ample evidence proving that the Tsarnaev brothers were behind the Boston Marathon bombings.  During the police manhunt, the older brother was killed in a gunfight with law enforcement.  The Boston area remains under lockdown while the younger Tsarnaev remains at large.

This development raises plenty of eyebrows, since it's doubtful that the authorities have the Constitutional right to keep an entire city under siege, refusing to allow citizens out of their homes.  This isn't wartime.  This wasn't even the deadliest explosion that took place in America this week.

Boston is currently a ghost town

If the family of the Tsarnaevs are correct in stating that the brothers were set up, keeping an entire city under lockdown would be an ideal way to keep suspicious individuals from crying foul.  It is perversely ironic that Boston- one of the cradles of American independence- is the first American city to be turned into a total police state.

Never before has a manhunt for two "lone wolf" fugitives resulted in the complete authoritarian control of a city.  Oklahoma City remained free in the wake of Timothy McVeigh's actions, most of Manhattan remained accessible after the 9/11 attacks, and Atlanta didn't turn into an ersatz prison after the Olympic bombing.  The decision to keep an entire city hostage is every bit as extreme as any action of any Muslim terrorist.

Adding to the chaos, it is now being reported that authorities are planning a "controlled explosion" as they are currently cordoning off the street where the suspect lived.  It is also claimed that nearly a dozen police officers were injured during the massive manhunt of the Tsarnaev brothers, which culminated in a firefight in Watertown, Mass., leaving the older brother dead.  Meanwhile, local schools and universities are currently being evacuated around the Boston area.

"This is not someone who seemed troubled in high school or shy. He was just one of us. It's very weird," claimed a former classmate, Sierra Schwartz.

A city under lockdown... a controlled explosion by authorities... numerous testimonials from those who claim that the Tsarnaev boys were quiet mild-mannered gentlemen who wouldn't harm a fly... and let's not forget about the "mystery man on the roof" (obviously not one of the Tsarnaev boys) or the Navy SEALS carrying black backpacks, or the passionate claims by relatives that the Chechen boys are being set up.  This incident has the ability to quickly become a conspiracy theorist's wet dream.

The only way to satisfy the skeptics is to take Dzhokhar Tsarnaev alive.

The Incest Capital of the World?

At the far eastern edge of Kentucky, nestled in Appalachia, resides Letcher County. In spite of its isolation and poverty (approximately 30% of the county's population lives below the poverty line), Letcher County has managed to grow at an impressive rate, from a population of just 9,172 in 1900 to a present-day population of nearly 25,000. However, even if Letcher County tripled or quadrupled its present population, there's still a pretty good chance that virtually all of the county's inhabitants would be related to each other-- thanks to one particularly fertile family whose astounding rate of reproduction can put even the friskiest rabbit to shame.

Around the year 1900, Letcher County was the home of a man by the name of Jason L. Webb, who made national headlines for having the one of the largest families in the world. According to newspaper reports of the era, Jason had 19 children, 175 grandchildren, and 100 great-grandchildren. Perhaps even more impressive was his b…

The Ticking Tombstone of Landenberg

If you look closely at a map of Pennsylvania, you'll see an anomalous semi-circular border at the extreme southeastern part of the state. This circle, known officially as the "Twelve Mile Circle", serves as the border between the Keystone State and Delaware. Much of the strange circle is surrounded by Chester County, one of the three original Pennsylvania counties created by William Penn in 1682. While there are many historical points of interest in Chester County, few are strange or as steeped in legend as the Ticking Tombstone.

Near the London Tract Meeting House in Landenberg is an old graveyard which contains a tombstone which is said to make eerie ticking noises, much like the ticking of a pocketwatch. Landenberg locals claim that the ticking is the result of two very famous surveyors who arrived in town during the 1760s- Charles Mason and Jeremiah Dixon.  A young child supposedly swallowed a valuable pocketwatch owned by Mason and later died, and the boy's head…

Jenny Hanivers, Mermaids, Devil Fish, and Sea Monks

Three centuries before P.T. Barnum attracted flocks of crowds with his mummified Fiji Mermaid (which turned out to be a papier-mâché creation featuring a monkey's head and a fish's body), sailors around the world had already began manufacturing "mermaids".  Known as Jenny Hanivers, these creations were often sold to tourists and provided sailors with an additional source of income.  These mummified creatures were produced by drying, carving, and then varnishing the carcasses of fish belonging to the order rajiformes- a group of flattened cartilaginous fish related to the shark which includes stingrays and skates.  These preserved carcasses can be made to resemble mermaids, dragons, angels, demons, and other mythical creatures.

Jenny Hanivers became popular in the mid-16th century, when sailors around the Antwerp docks began selling the novelties to tourists.  This practice was so common  in the Belgian city that it may have influenced the name; it is widely believed …
