From the maverick science files: Jennifer Viegas reveals that previous findings of "human/Neanderthal interbreeding" have been confirmed by new research that shows "some of the human X chromosome originates from Neanderthals, but only in people of non-African heritage." Does this make modern non-African heritage humans hybrids? And more than hybridization occupies the mind of a commentator known more for her revelations concerning UFOs, alien abductions and general paranormal subjects. Chris Holly discourses on the creation of chimeras in the laboratories of the world, sometimes with little to no oversight, and the possible horrific outcome of such genetic manipulation, all put together in When Science Visits Frankenstein Thinking! Meanwhile, Dr. Andrew May shows where his own consideration of missing time in European history went askew with his explanation of The Phantom Time Hypothesis.

Ed Grabianowski pays homage to a select group of cryptids he says "are so bizarre you kind of hope they're real." Here are the eight beasties Grabianowski selects with some images and videos. Jonathan Wilkins, meanwhile, has photo evidence to back up his report on Ten Extinct Animals That Have Been Rediscovered. Elsewhere, adding a bit of welcome humor to the field of monster hunting, Nick Redfern offers a few words about the appearance of a "puddle monster" in Texas, with Naomi's Nessie... before directing your attention to the words of Naomi West herself in Beware the Puddle Monster, Puddle Monster 2 - The Mystery Continues and Puddle Monster 3 - The Nightmare Continues. And there's more Nessie news, including an indeterminate photo, in Could This be the Latest Nessie Sighting?
