"Santa Barbara County Man Sentenced to 6 Months in Prison for Obstructing Federal Probe into Plane Crash He Posted on YouTube"

As per the article:

"LOS ANGELES – A YouTuber pilot was sentenced today to six months in federal prison for obstructing a federal investigation by deliberately destroying the wreckage of an airplane that he intentionally crashed in Santa Barbara County to gain online views."

And, further along in the article:

"On November 24, 2021, Jacob took off in his airplane from Lompoc City Airport on a solo flight purportedly destined for Mammoth Lakes. Jacob did not intend to reach his destination, but instead planned to eject from his aircraft during the flight and video himself parachuting to the ground and his airplane as it descended and crashed.

Prior to taking off, Jacob mounted several video cameras on different parts of the airplane and equipped himself with a parachute, video camera and selfie stick. Approximately 35 minutes after taking off, while flying above the Los Padres National Forest near Santa Maria, Jacob ejected from the airplane and videoed himself parachuting to the ground.

Using the video camera mounted on the selfie stick and the video cameras he mounted on the airplane, Jacob was able to record the airplane as it descended and crashed into a dry brush area in Los Padres National Forest. After parachuting to the ground, Jacob hiked to the location of the wreck and recovered the data containing the video recording of his flight and the crash of the airplane."

And, still further along in the article:

"In the weeks following the plane crash, Jacob lied to investigators that he did not know the wreckage's location. In fact, on December 10, 2021, Jacob and a friend flew by helicopter to the wreckage site. There, Jacob used straps to secure the wreckage, which the helicopter lifted and carried to Rancho Sisquoc in Santa Barbara County, where it was loaded onto a trailer attached to Jacob's pickup truck."

It's incredible the lengths some people will go just to get views on YouTube.

"NASA and Boeing chase jet contrails with science of climate impact in doubt"

As per the article:

"Scientific debate is getting heated over what to do about airplane contrails — the wispy lines of water vapor you often see trailing behind a jet.

Those harmless-looking vapor trails sometimes spread out to form thin cirrus clouds. Environmental activists and nonprofits focused on climate change routinely assert contrails contribute more to global warming than the carbon dioxide emitted from jet engines.

The aviation industry, under pressure to do something, has stepped up research into contrails."

Not to worry though, I'm sure we The Illuminati are already all over this, and will make sure this little research project stays in its own lane. We The Illuminati, of course, would never dream of allowing mission creep to set in by allowing the boys at NASA and Boeing to investigate those barely noticable, completely harmless chemtrails.

"Saint Nicholas' Tomb Unearthed in Turkey"

As per the article:

"The tomb of Saint Nicholas, also known as "Santa Claus," and the floor on which he walked, inside the St. Nicholas Church in the town of Myra in today's southern Turkey have recently been unearthed by archeologists.

Living between 270 and 343, Saint Nicholas, was an early Christian bishop during the time of the Roman Empire. Because of the many miracles attributed to his intercession, he is also known as "Nicholas the Wonderworker."

The Church of St. Nicholas, located in Myra, which was renamed by Turkey as Demre in 2005, was built in 520 on the foundations of an older Christian church where Saint Nicholas served as a bishop and was buried."

Some may find this to be an interesting story at this time of year.
