The universe we live in may not be the only one out there. In fact, our universe could be just one of an infinite number of universes making up a “multiverse.”

Though the concept may seem crazy , there’s good physics behind it. And there’s not just one way to get to a multiverse — numerous physics theories independently point to such a conclusion. In fact, some experts think the existence of hidden universes is more likely than not.

Here are the five most plausible scientific theories suggesting we live in a multiverse:

Paul Hertz, Director of the Astrophysics Division of NASA, shared at IMGUR this statement about aliens on, Sept 29,

We are never going to discover aliens, aliens are going to discover us and when they do it won´t be pretty. You can take that to the bank. There certainly wont be enought time for press conferences about it. You probaly wont have the time to blink. “Be carefull what you wish for. if you guys knew even a fraction of the stuff we do, you will never sleep again. I promise you that" 

Paul Hertz Director of the astrophysics divison at nasa. Paul Hertz was named Director of the Astrophysics Division in the Science Mission Directorate at NASA in March 2012. He is responsible for the Agency’s research programs and missions necessary to discover how the universe works, explore how the universe began and developed into its present form, and search for Earth-like planets. Paul Hertz Statement here, WTF!

Doll found in exhumed grave - Independent.ie
Gardaí investigating the reported death of a newborn infant found only a toy doll when they opened the grave.

This is one of those headlines that potentially has a whole novel hidden in it.

It’s easy to forget how much pressure some people can be under from families and acquaintances to reproduce: and especially in Ireland, where childlessness sometimes seems to provoke more than the usual number of incredulous comments along the lines of “what, you don’t have children?” (with added/implied “What’s the matter with you?”).

The scenario’s all too easy to imagine. A couple in a small country village who either (a) don’t want children, or equally possibly, (b) want a child desperately, but haven’t been able to have one for any number of reasons. A couple who either way are under endless unsympathetic pressure from relatives or “friends” in the tiny social hothouse that such places can become to do what every other “normal” married couple does and have a baby.

And then finally something snaps. One partner says to the other, “I can’t stand this any more, I’m going to go mad, let’s ‘have a baby’ and then have it ‘die’ and bury it. Maybe then they’ll say ‘All right, they tried, and now after something so tragic happening who’d want to push them into trying again, the poor souls,’ and after that they’ll leave us alone.”

And so the plan is laid and the charade goes forward, with the help of a sympathetic (and now complicit) funeral director. There is a funeral. A coffin is buried. The couple thinks “Finally now we can have some peace.”

But something is wrong with the necessary paper trail. Or else someone – unconvinced relative, nasty gossipy ”friend” – gets suspicious for some other reason, and tips off the Health Services Executive. “She didn’t seem to be very pregnant for very long,” the whisper goes. “Was there some kind of foul play? Was that even their own baby? Whose baby did they bury? Or was there even ever a baby to begin with?”

And then the gears of government start slowly grinding, and the truth starts coming out…

My only question here is: even though “charges are unlikely”, what would the police even be able to charge this couple with? (Beyond the ever-popular ‘wasting police time’, at this end of things.) Is it a crime to bury something in holy ground under false pretenses? [Maybe in canon law, but not civil, surely.] To fake the death of someone who was never alive? To engage in a fraud meant to silence the relatives / the neighbors?…

A tiny tragedy, as such things go. But at the personal level – no matter what the background story is – almost certainly so very sad.

July 31st 1992, Michael Jackson appeared on his hotel balcony Friday after police told him it would keep a young man from committing suicide by jumping from an apartment block opposite. Eric Herminie, 28, perched on the parapet six stories up on Friday afternoon and shouted, “I want to see Michael! I’m going to jump if I don’t!” Press Association, the British news agency, said. He then screamed, “Michael, Michael!” over and over, it said.

Police contacted Jackson, and he appeared on his Dorchester Hotel balcony for about two minutes, waving to Herminie and to fans gathered below, said a Scotland Yard spokesman. Herminie, who is unemployed, then climbed back inside the building, he said. 

BREAKING NEWS! MAN TAKES OWN LIFE AFTER APRIL FOOLS PRANK GOES HORRIBLY WRONG.

Richard “Rick” Small, aged 38 of Kearney, Nebraska was found dead from jumping out of his friend’s moving vehicle. After convincing a local news broadcasting station to report (falsely) his recent death as an April Fools joke his wife took the opportunity to call upon her lover. A few hours after the station reported Small’s fake death Small returned to his home to find his wife in bed with another man. According to testimony from Small’s estranged wife, Tiffany Small, “He just… sorta stopped. I heard him start wailing and then he just hurried out of the room. I let him down. This is all my fault.” she said through violent sobs.

While walking down the street, Richard Small’s friend Michael came upon him while driving around in his pickup truck. “I asked Rick what was up. He didn’t say much,” said Michael. “So I offered him a ride back to my place about twenty minutes away. He jumped in and didn’t even put on his seatbelt.”

While on the road, Small forced open his door and jumped out into the oncoming traffic. “I had no idea what happened to Rick but I’ve never known him to give up. I’ve seen him deal with some bad stuff but even through all that Rick would just roll with the punches.” said Michael.

The funeral of Richard “Rick” Small is said to be a small private ceremony on April 7th, 2015.

Hug of love for Harry.
Todd, John; Kemp, Danny | The Mirror (London, England) | May 24, 1999

PRINCE Harry enjoyed a bit of horseplay with his dad at a celebrity polo match yesterday.Harry, 15, started a light-hearted tug-of-war with Prince Charles after jokingly refusing to let go of his polo mallet. At one stage they raised their arms for a mock kung fu fight.

The pair seemed in good spirits and relaxed as they larked about at Hurtwood Park Club in Ewhurst, Surrey.
And as father and son prepared to part, Charles embraced Harry and planted a kiss on his cheek.

One spectator said: “They looked very happy and spent a lot of time mucking about like any normal father and son would.”
