OJ Simpson’s Death & The African Blob Anomaly: Weird News

04/12/2024

O.J. Simpson passed away, a “blob” anomaly was spotted over Antarctica, and more UFOs may have been caught on camera. These are the weirdest things that happened this week, which will get covered in this Friday Night Live.

After former NFL star O.J. Simpson’s family announced his death on April 10, 2024, sports fans, celebrities, and true crime fanatics have been reacting and posting about the news. However, on top of all of the memes being created, there were a lot of memories coming up. The O.J. trial was one of the most watched programs of all time on TV, and it changed how people viewed television as well as how media agencies reported on the news. Since the internet didn’t exist yet, people were dependent on what the news media told them about the case. For the media companies, it wasn’t about if he was guilty or not; it was about milking this story for all it was worth as 30 million viewers tuned in every day. But did O.J. actually commit the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman? Why were certain facts left out of the courtroom, and why was America so fixated on the whole ordeal? Join Ben and Rob from Edge of Wonder as they unravel the history behind the case, what O.J. Simpson said for himself, and what others are saying today.

Also on this show, there’s a mystery: A strange and unusual, massive, dark blob appeared on a map traveling north over Antarctica toward Africa—and 80-foot waves were spotted, as well. What was this strange anomaly? Was it just a glitch in the mapping system, as the company who spotted it stated? Is there more to this mystery? Find out on this Friday Night Live. Don’t forget about the Mandela Effect (or Bendela Effect, as we call them). What do you remember: Totino’s or Tostino’s? Finish the show with everyone’s favorite, the Top 10 Weirder News of the Week, plus the “Dig Deep” Live Q&A! See you out… on the edge!

 

“Dig Deep” Q&A: “What TV sitcom had the best theme song?” “What O.J. possessed?” “What do you think of the hypothesis that we need good and bad, so some people agree to be evil.” “Have you heard of the ‘phoenix event,’ a recurring cyclical phenomenon?” “What if as souls, prior to birth, we agreed to play a particular role (even in horrendous situations)?” “Is it really ‘people’ who do terrible things? Is the true human form capable of evil?”

 

Top 10 Weirder News of the Week:

10. The tables have turned—or maybe it’s that the tides have reversed. Strong winds in Cape Town made the water go backwards!

9. Immediately after the 2024 eclipse, there was a spike in certain Google unfortunate searches that will have you shaking your head.

8. An English woman woke up with a Welsh accent overnight, despite never having visited the country. Is it really a rare syndrome, a hoax, or evidence of a past life?

7. Hear the reason why an Italian island with almost no people on it is giving away goats for free.

6. During the eclipse, footage was captured of … something. Theories ranged from a UFO to an airplane to a flying dragon.

5. Tens of thousands of salmon had a collective near-death experience when a miraculous and ironic twist of fate happened.

4. Listen to the most bizarre case of identity theft ever told, involving a hot dog cart, a homeless man, a suspicious debt, a psych ward, and a DNA test.

3. Frisky cicadas infect their friends with horrific, zombie-like behavior.

2. An illegal migrant appeared to try robbing a bank using Google translate.

1. “I’m pretty tired,” said one Forrest Gump come to life as he completed running the length of an entire continent.
