SnakeBytes: There Are No Babies in the Woods

After delivering a PSA about babies in the woods, Russ reads through some missing persons cases that have caught his eye for various reasons. He does not blame samsquanches, since they can't whistle.

Snakebytes: Whistle While You Starve

Russ gets in a dig at WaPo's current slogan before reading an abridged article from their website about 5 young men who disappeared in 1977, a case that only seemed to become more inexplicable the more the investigators found. The case is discussed and compared to others from the Missing 411 casefiles, to American Indian oral traditions, and to fairy folklore.

SnakeBytes: Aliens and Fairies and Samsquanches, oh my

This is a new thing we're gonna try("we" meaning "Russ") for a couple of reasons; one being that sometimes life gets in the way of us getting together in the Tangent Cube of Science to record a show for that week, and two being that we(Russ again) sometimes just want to rant about something or other but not necessarily in the context of a full show.

Thus, SnakeBytes is born: short(meaning shorter than the main show) monologues into whatever weirdness Russ is wandering around in at the moment. These will not be recorded in the studio, nor will they benefit from the audio engineering expertise of Kyle that gives the main show its shiny, polished, eargasm goodness, but they can be recorded on the spur of the moment and posted immediately. On weeks when we cannot record a regular show, Snakebytes can fill the void.

In this first Snakebyte, Russ reads a few strange accounts from the book Dimensions by Jacques Vallee, connecting these UFO stories to Missing 411 and Fairy Folklore.

Brothers of the Serpent: Episode #028

We start out with the latest news on the ScanPyramids project, which is that there is no news. Then we discuss some crazy geology and paleontology factology because Russ is reading Velikovsky's Earth in Upheaval and it's blowing his mind. We're talking islands made entirely of mammoth bones and hippo teeth and glacial erratics so big people accidentally built villages on them.

In the second half of the show we discuss a topic that has become a permanent SnakeBro favorite: weird giant triangles. In this case the giant triangle is the Bermuda Triangle, so we discuss the nature of the disappearances and outline a few specific cases, then go into the many theories about the possible causes, and Kyle demonstrates his skerptard skills by skerpderping them all(after which he announces he might be "going profesh"). One of the theories involves pyramids from Atlantis, still activating on occaision from the ocean depths and disappearing everything in sight. So basically a giant weird triangle caused by giant weird triangles.

Plus there's fossil Kracken Plesiosaur Selfies in Australia and a bunch of bad dad jokes.

Brothers of the Serpent: Episode #27

 The Official Show Observer, the honorable and venerated Mr. Brett England, is in studio with us for this episode, here to offer his assessment of the work of Dr. Melba Ketchum and her team in DNA sequencing of possible Sasquatch hair and skin samples. Mr. England has relevant education and thus delivers what is most likely the only competent opinion on this work that has been delivered to the paranormal and podcasting communities(all other opinions having come from know-nothing Skerptards).

Aside from that, we discuss the ScanPyramids Project and the possibility of a huge unknown chamber in the GP, Kyle's trip to Italy and the ancient Egyptian artifacts he saw there, and we finish out the show with a few excellent OOPArts.

Brothers of the Serpent: Episode #025

We start this episode discussing how modern sports teams can generate a sense of community and commonality in their home cities, creating a situation similar to the ancient "city-states" of Sumer, Akkad, Assyria, etc.

We briefly discuss the ongoing project to propose methods for encoding our modern civilization's knowledge into oral traditions, complete with an entertaining exoteric theme which conceals esoteric symbolism which encodes the knowledge.

For the rest of the show, we talk about NEPHAS.  (aka Giants)  Because Russ has been reading Jim Vieira's book, Giants on Record.

Sometimes, the Giants are real.

Brothers of the Serpent Episode 025


We need to get our hands on this KMZ file. This lists many of the sites where giant remains(7+ ft in height or more) were reportedly found.

Brothers of the Serpent: Episode #023

  "C'mon you apes! You wanta live forever?"   -Unknown platoon sergeant, 1918

We discuss life expectancy, from the microbiological causes of aging to theoretical possibilities of physical immortality, and the intriguing fact that many ancient civilizations recorded extraordinary long lives of remote ancestors.
We discuss the suppression of scientific knowledge that goes counter to contemporary scientific theory, and the fallacy of the concept of "indigenous", and a bunch of other stuff I can't remember right now but was all very interesting.


Here, have some dolmens:

Brothers of the Serpent: Episode #019

In this episode we discuss how many of the most mysterious ancient sites are connected to each other through sometimes obvious, sometimes subtle, stylistic similarities, and how this fits with the growing picture of ancient history as defined by pulling together ancient texts and myths from all over the world.

Bananas continue to not be discussed at all.

Brothers of the Serpent: Episode #018

In this episode we spend a lot of time on the subject of modern so-called "skeptics"(AKA skerptards AKA skerpderpers AKA losers), the concept of "debunking" vs actually disproving or falsification, and the myriad ways that the modern "skeptic" movement is deeply deceptive in their methods and tactics. We also discuss and give examples of how the scientific community in many respects has also engaged in widespread acts of deception both large and small, and how "alternative" or "fringe" or "paranormal" researchers often have some of the most solid, well-supported evidence and arguments because of the constant attacks on their work by the mainstream, which looks for any possible way to discredit even if it is deeply disingenuous and/or fallacious. Since the mainstream does not even come close to holding itself to similar standards, much of it's work has later been shown to fall apart when attempts to recreate it are undertaken.

So basically what we're saying is, Nephas 1, Losers 0.

Brothers of the Serpent: Episode #016

In this episode we start out with a strange news item about alien/reptilian looking mummified bodies found in Peru, then from there we move on to the Ancient Alien hypothesis vs the Ancient Advanced Civilization hypothesis, consciousness and quantum mechanics, cryogenics and AI, life, the universe, and everything.

Brothers of the Serpent: Episode #015

In this episode we have a guest, Archer Finley aka GMA(Greatest Man Alive), close friend and SnakeBro who has a degree in Electrical Engineering. So we spend most of the episode asking him questions about electricity and totally not understanding the answers. We also ask his opinion on whether ancient civilizations could have had some understanding of electrical forces. We talk about telluric currents, the Shuttle Tether mission(which was STS 75, not STS 80 as Russ said on the show), Nikola Tesla, and more.

Brothers of the Serpent Episode 015

Brothers of the Serpent: Episode #014


We start this episode off with a few interesting news items that lead to another short discussion about the Elastic Universe Hypothesis and how it might be tested via an interesting anomaly that happens only beneath a full solar eclipse. And also how archaeologists are dumb because for like a hundred years they've been trying to study ancient astronomical observatories during the daytime.

We then move on to the subject of the Black Knight Satellite at the request of a listener(thanks J), which means we get into Long Delay Echoes, ancient space probes, Phillip K. Dick and V.A.L.I.S.

After that, we talk about a strange correlation between gigantic pyramids in Mexico, China, and Indonesia, then finish up with a brief discussion of a very mysterious place in China known as the Longyou Grottoes.

Gravitic Lensing (theoretically) caused by the gravity of a galaxy cluster in the foreground, warping the light of galaxies behind it into circular arcs(btw the very bright object on the upper right is a star in our own galaxy)



Graph of LDEs


Epsilon Bootes constellation


Some believe this photo taken from the space shuttle captured the elusive Black Knight


NASA map of PHAs(Potentially Hazardous Asteroids)
This map does not include comets. We're all gonna die.

Teotihuacan




It's pretty big.....I guess




Why was this place encased in Mica??


Volcanic mountain near Teotihuacan



Pyramids in China




They refer to them as "mausoleums"


They're totally not pyramids. See the trees? Hills. Just hills.


Pyramid of the first Chinese emperor. The Terracotta warriors are nearby.


The top of Gunung Padang in Indonesia

The top level was made using basalt columns that form naturally when lava hits seawater

The top level is about 2500 years old. The lowest levels are 30,000 years old.


The Terracotta Warriors

This is just a few of them....there are over 6,000 in total, plus horses

That's a lotta clay mmkay

Note each has very unique individual features


One of the Longyou Grottoes. The light is coming through an opening that was the original pool on the surface

Who did this? Where did all the rock go? Where are the fish?


That would seem like a "bottomless" pool

Note the extremely uniform marks on the walls

Each grotto is many levels deep

The rooms are cavernous and huge

A close-up of the marks on the walls. Toothpicks and dedication? Or advanced machinery?
