Da fupp?

Andrew Sheridan  writes:

Not what you would expect to find in a graveyard in Castlerickard, Co. Meath. Built in c.1815.

Did he play the GAA at all?

Resting inside the elaborate tomb is Godwin Swift. A noted freemason, he was also the uncle and benefactor to the renowned writer and dean, Jonathan Swift. Godwin lived from 1628 to 1695, and it was he who first set Jonathan on the road to literary greatness*. Alongside Godwin lies the remains of Sophia Jane Swift who died in 1851 in Versailles….

The multi-level interior features a library, balcony, garage, two bedrooms, and recording studio with one entire facet of the pyramid glazed – or since we’re in the realm of conceptual architecture here – sealed with a triangular force field.

Climbing the pyramid has been illegal since 1951 and is punishable by up to three years imprisonment. The tourists, who weren’t caught, claim they saw signatures in many languages engraved on the stones at the top, including that of a Russian tsar.

The photos went viral after being posted on the LiveJournal page of ringleader Vitaly Raskalov.

The three have since apologised for their actions.


One of three photos of El Castillo pyramid in the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza taken in 2009 by Hector Siliezar. Having captured a lightning flash in this, the third shot, Siliezar was stunned to see a beam of light shooting up into the sky from the top of the pyramid.

A sign of Doomsday 2012?

NASA researcher Jonathon Hill (the bloody spoilsport) claims it’s an iPhone glitch.

…a distortion in an image that arises from the way cameras bounce around incoming light.

It is no mere coincidence, Hill said, that “of the three images, the ‘light beam’ only occurs in the image with a lightning bolt in the background. The intensity of the lightning flash likely caused the camera’s CCD sensor to behave in an unusual way, either causing an entire column of pixels to offset their values or causing an internal reflection (off the) camera lens that was recorded by the sensor.” In either case, extra brightness would have been added to the pixels in that column in addition to the light hitting them directly from the scene.
