5 Strange Coincidences: Aaron Alexis and Adam Lanza

If recent history has taught us anything, it's that mass casualty events are almost immediately followed by talk of conspiracy, or allegations of "false flag" fakery.  So, let's get the ball rolling and point out some weird similarities between Aaron Alexis and Adam Lanza.

1. Both shooters were reported to have used someone else's ID to gain access to the scene of the crime.  According to authorities, Adam Lanza was found with his brother Ryan's driver's license at Sandy Hook, and it is now being reported by several media outlets that Alexis was carrying an ID card belonging to Rollie Chance, who was on administrative leave.

2. Both shooters carried a similar arsenal of weapons.  An AR-15 assault rifle, a handgun, and a shotgun were found on Washington Navy Yard shooting suspect Aaron Alexis, according to The Epoch Times Lanza also brought an AR-15 assault rifle, a handgun, and a shotgun to Sandy Hook (the shotgun was found in the trunk of Lanza's car).  Both men owned Glock handguns (Alexis used his to shoot out the tires of a car in Seattle; Lanza's Glock was recovered at Sandy Hook Elementary School).

Oddly, Valerie Parlave of the FBI field office in Washington stated earlier today, “It’s hard to carry that many guns, so there is some thinking that he may have taken some of them from security or whoever else he shot.”  Are we the only ones who find it strange that no one seemed to think it was unusual that Lanza carried even more guns into the school than Alexis carried into the Navy Yard?

3. Both shooters have been referred to as tech-savvy computer whizzes.  Lanza had been described as a "savant" in regards to computers, while Alexis most recently worked for a company known as "The Experts", as a subcontractor on an HP Enterprise Services contract to refresh equipment used on the Navy Marine Corps Intranet network.
Alexis' LinkedIn profile of said he attended Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and worked as a network technician at SinglePoint Technologies.  Interestingly, SinglePoint Technologies is a firm which specializes in recovering lost and deleted data from computer hard drives for government agencies.

4.  It has been reported that immediate family members had not seen Lanza or Alexis for years.  Despite the fact that Adam was found carrying his brother's ID, several media outlets (such as the Wall Street Journal) reported that Ryan Lanza hadn't seen Adam since 2010. 

“We haven’t seen him for years,” stated Aaron Alexis' aunt, Helen Weeks, earlier today to the Washington Post. “I know he was in the military. He served abroad. I think he was doing some kind of computer work.”

5.  Both shooters are said to have been enamored with violent video games.  “The thing that really struck me was the fact that he was really big into the shooter video games," stated Chris Childs earlier today, who knew Alexis personally.  Michael Ritrovato, another friend of the Washington shooter, said Alexis never showed signs of aggressiveness or violence, though he played a lot of shooting video games online.

Food for Thought:

While few people are claiming that the attack at the Washington Naval Yard was a "false flag" event, the incident will rekindle thoughts of Sandy Hook, and may provoke yet even more unanswered questions about the Newtown massacre.  For instance, here's some food for thought...

Armed with virtually the same arsenal of weapons, a grown man with several years of military training managed to kill 12 individuals, in a facility which employs 3,000 people.  Yet, a young kid with Asperger's Syndrome, who never had a day of military training in his life, managed to kill twice as many victims inside a school with an enrollment of 575.  Yet the FBI insists that Alexis couldn't have acted alone because “It’s hard to carry that many guns", but authorities would have us believe that Adam Lanza acted alone?

Meanwhile, reports that:

Law enforcement sources tell CNN that the same Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives team that assisted with the Boston Marathon bombing have been deployed to Navy Yard.

How interesting.

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 …
