2015 was a big year for Canadian UFO sightings - Details

Canada experienced a very high number of reported UFO sightings in 2015, according to an annual survey released by Winnipeg, Manitoba-based Ufology Study.

A survey of UFO reports has revealed that in 2015, Canadians were reporting three or four sightings a day – a steep climb over 2014 and the second-highest total in the past 30 years. Many of the sightings have been put down to weather conditions or aircraft, but 12 per cent are still classified as “unexplained”.

New Yorker Alejandro “AJ” Fragoso has set a new world record for watching television after spending 94 hours glued to episodes of Battlestar Galactica, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Twilight Zone, Bob’s Burgers, Adventure Time and Game of Thrones. The Brooklyner was allowed a five-minute break every hour, but otherwise had to train his eyes on the screen at all times. “I learned that binge-watching TV for abnormally long durations can actually be quite physically taxing,” Fragoso said.

The Lonely Planet has published a guide book detailing more than 100 of the world’s finest toilets. Toilets: A Spotter’s Guide showcases a range of facilities from around the world, including artistic urban structures and wooden outposts in remote deserts. “The lavatory is the great leveller,” the book says. “Everyone feels the call of nature every day, but, like any common species, being ubiquitous doesn’t make it uniform.”
