Amazing Kreskin Opens Supernatural Dating Site – Predicts It Will Take Dating to a New Dimension

Friday, March 27th, 2015

In a move only he could’ve seen coming…you know….because he’s who he is…the Amazing Kreskin has opened the gates on a new dating site…

A site for “enthusiasts of the paranormal, the unexplained, the mystical, the implausible…”

While we’re pretty sure the guy-to-girl ratio will probably be a lot like a magic club, Kreskin is predicting (yeah…we know) great things for the site:

“I have a feeling that it’s going to take on a dimension that I never realized.”

With Kreskin’s foresight that online graphic design will eventually swing back around to the geocities-era of the internet, the site will probably lure a niche market of older folks who have seen, captured or smelled a bigfoot or been abducted by time-traveling Atlanteans who need love just like the rest of us.

Which brings up some questions: What sort of beings are looking for love? Will they all be human or other things in diguise? Are there vampires and werewolves worried about the fall out from a public tryst in light of the Twilight movies? Are there off-world species seeking to swing it with a human for a cheap thrill on their way to somewhere else? Are the reptilians using the site for some sinister plot? Will other creatures find that someone special without having to brave daylight, pitchforks and torches?

Or is it just a bunch of lonely, probably really nice people just looking for a little companionship in a big and often harsh, ridiculing reality?

Answers will only come with time…

Idaho High School Catches Ghost or Possibly a Predator on Surveillance Video

Sunday, January 4th, 2015

In mid-September, surveillance cameras at Pocatello High School in Idaho caught what paranormal investigators are calling a human-looking figure wandering the halls during the winter break.

After seeing the video, you’ll probably shake your head, “Nope. Predator.”

During the video, lights repeatedly act strange and flicker on and off before the arrival of the figure. Then the figure makes its appearance outside of the men’s restroom. This knocks out the whole ghost theory.

Pocatello High School has been around since 1917. Over the years it’s been more like Sunnydale with stories of weird activity from suicide pacts to shadow figures to a mysteriously playing piano to the ghost of a drowned boy who died in the school’s pool.

Paranormal investigators were called in to look over the security footage. While excited about the footage, they can’t determine what it is. Shadow figure? Prank-playing science teacher who discovered invisibility? Predator? Sue Richards?

No one’s sure what strolls the halls of Pocatello High…but now it’s been caught on camera so let the hypotheticals begin!

Best part of the story for you long-time fans of Weird Things?

The paranormal group is called SPIRO.

Boy Inhabited by Ghost of Deceased Soldier?

Saturday, November 15th, 2014

A four-year-old Virginian boy is being inhabited by the spirit of a deceased soldier tragically killed in a bombing.

His mother states that he’s talking about things that a boy his age wouldn’t know anything about.

In a moment straight out of the creepiest movie his mother states:

““He just starts crying hysterically and I say “What’s wrong Andrew?” and he says, “Why did you let me die in that fire?’”

So…Damien from the Omen, the twins from the Shining…and Andrew from Virginia.

Double Rainbow Causes Fishermen To See Ghosts

Sunday, November 9th, 2014

Two fishermen in Wisconsin have come forward to say they’ve captured something strange in a series of photographs they took of an always-magical (and probably portals to other dimensions) double rainbow.

After getting home and examining their photos of an often mythic and elusive double rainbow, one of the men noticed what appeared to be a figure with glowing eyes.

Not only did the double rainbow cause the fisherman to see some kind of apparition…

The spill-over from the magnitude of the double rainbow also caused the news station to make one of the strangest news pieces we’ve ever seen about an alleged ghost sighting.

Paranormal Investigator Stabs Self in Murder House

Saturday, November 8th, 2014

Back in 1912, a little house in Iowa became a grisly crime scene where 8 people (6 of them were children). They were all beaten and stabbed to death and to this day, no one has found out who the murderer was. Over the last couple of decades the house has become a destination for paranormal investigators from every corner of the globe.

It’s probably going to get even more traffic now that a paranormal investigator has apparently stabbed himself.

Just after midnight local police got a call from the house stating that a lone paranormal investigator from Wisconsin, Robert Laursen Jr.,needed medical attention from an apparently self-inflicted stab wound.

Details on his condition and his own story about what happened have yet to be released.

News Crew Investigates Alleged Home Haunting – Makes Ghost Angry

Wednesday, August 6th, 2014

A news crew was sent to do a story about an alleged haunted house that it set to be featured on a new show called the ‘Dead Files’.

From the sound of it, the whole crew seemed to have the what-could-possibly-go-wrong attitude.

What they didn’t expect is that the anchor woman would get pinched and touched and that the camera guy would get scratched by whatever might be lurking in the house.

There’s really not much to be snarky about…except for the studio employee that just had to lighten the mood by messing with the studio’s dimmer at the end of the clip.

There’s always THAT guy.

Couple Captures Ghost in Photo on Alcatraz

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

A couple from Birmingham, England were visiting the infamous Alcatraz in San Francisco when something strange caught their attention.

“Whilst doing an audio-tour of the place, I casually stopped to take a snap of the empty visitation block window on my iPhone. When I glanced at the photo on my mobile, I saw this dark female figure in the picture. I looked at the window again and there was no-one in the room. I knew straight away that the woman in the photo was a ghost and showed the snap to Paul.”

Paul, the woman’s companion during the visit, was also a little weirded out by the image:

“I have no logical explanation for the girl in the picture – I’m baffled by her! It’s funny because she’s staring right at the camera, with a knowing look. I was really skeptical about ghosts before but I’m a bit more of a believer now. I do think that the woman in the photo is a ghost.”

Paranormal Activity Star Claims She’s Had Sex…with a Ghost!

Friday, May 9th, 2014

Natasha Blasick, an actress from Paranormal Activity 2, is claiming she’s shacked up with a being from the afterlife.

Nope. Really.

This isn’t tabloid fodder, kids. It’s right up there in that video. Straight from the horse’s mouth.

What’s even more interesting is that this isn’t her first romantic encounter with a ghostly lover.

Nope. It’s the SECOND time this has happened to her.

“I felt something entered the room. I couldn’t see anybody. Suddenly I could feel that somebody touching me. Their hands were pushing me against my will and then I could feel the weight of their body on top of me but I couldn’t see anybody. At first I was very confused then I decided to relax and it was really pleasurable, I really enjoyed it. You don’t see anybody but it’s very pleasant and it made me feel warm and fuzzy. …It gave me comfort and support and love, and it did answer questions for me that there is something else out there.”

This will make for one of the weirdest paternity test episodes Maury Povich has ever had.

Figure Appears on Historic Bar’s Security Cam!

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Currently making the rounds is some CCTV camera footage from a bar in Bristol called Ye Olde Man and Scythe. The bar has been around since 1251.

On Valentine’s Day of this year, something showed up on the bar’s security camera. Most are immediately shouting “OMG! GHOST!”

The jury is still out on what this might be. Our bets are that it’s either a couple of seconds of footage dropped from GXSHT’s video for Black Camaro or a tease for Paranormal Activity 7? 8? 9?

What do YOU think is going on here? Is this the spirit of someone from the beyond or just someone doing a wrestler’s stroll into a bar?

Mysterious Priest Appears at Car Crash – Mysteriously Disappears After Rescue

Sunday, August 11th, 2013

USA Today has posted a story about a mysterious priest who appeared at the site of a car crash where firefighters were having a difficult time removing a girl from the wreckage.

After the priest told firefighters not to worry and that she’d be okay, the girl was freed from her twisted vehicle. Multiple witnesses reported seeing and even speaking with the priest…then they all reported that he seemed to just vanish.

Those involved in the story, including the news crew are continuing to search for the priest so that they can thank him for…uh…being a creepy rubbernecker?

Let’s just hope it’s not Preacher Kane…

Security cameras in a small store in Whitestable, England has captured something interesting on video. We’re not here to judge (okay…maybe we are on certain occasions).

Here’s the video. Now it’s in YOUR hands….

Wailing Ghost Mystery Solved – Just a Lady Trapped Behind a Wall

Sunday, July 21st, 2013

Residents of a building in China heard a wailing ghost, shrugged, counted it up as just another crazy Asian ghost wanting attention and left it alone.

What the residents didn’t know was that it wasn’t a ghost…just a woman with poor judgement and bad spatial awareness trying to take a shortcut home who’d wedged herself between two buildings…for SEVEN HOURS.

It took an emergency crew about half an hour to break enough of the wall to get to her thanks to a passerby who heard her cries and probably thought, “Sure doesn’t sound like a wailing ghost…but it sure DOES sound like an actual wailing person who might need help.”

Meanwhile the building’s residents are probably discussing why the wailing ghost has mysteriously stopped wailing.

Shanghai’s Haunted Train Station [Weird China]

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

Chinese native Chunzhenwang reports from Shanghai

skitched-20111119-163413.jpgI don’t like horror movies or ghost stories. My imagination pictures those things, especially at night, which freak me out. But the curiosity never stops me from listening to them. I want to figure out the reason behind each story. I feel like if I can find the rational side of these stories, I wouldn’t be scared anymore. Against my better judgement, I find myself seeking out ghost stories but very rarely finding the rationale behind them. So every night, I still fight with my imagination.

When you live in Shanghai, the subway will be your first choice for transportation. It’s not expensive and very convenient. But on Line One, there is a Caobao road station, or by its more popular name, “ghost station.”

skitched-20111119-163620.jpg

According to popular legend, the train will suddenly break down at that station, without driver error. When a maintenance trailer pulls the train out of the station, it works again. Other riders have reported the door not opening when in the haunted stop.

But most alarming is the nine deaths at Caobao, all involving unexplainable circumstances.

A few couple years ago, when the subway in Shanghai did not have shielded gates, a passenger waited for the train. All of a sudden, he plunged down into the tracks after inexplicably losing his balance. Unfortunately for him, his train was on time, ending his life. Witnesses say he didn’t fall off the platform, they saw something dragging him.

Just imagine the poor souls that have to work there.

One day, as usual, the staff needed to clean the trash in the track. One worker while cleaning, heard a woman laugh from the deep and dark side of the track. Since the station was closed, no one was supposed to be there.

Other staff report sometimes seeing a girl in red sitting in one of the chairs. Many believe she is the spirit of a young woman who committed suicide a couple of days before in the Caobao station. In the next few days following her death, many staff saw her sitting there every night.

I haven’t been to the Caobao station myself, mostly because I don’t live near that area. But where do these stories come from?

I think the main reason is the location of Caobao. It’s near a local mortuary, and the station’s ladies restroom is specifically close to the mortuary.

I don’t know these stories of the Caobao station is true or not. But I believe at least the inspiration for them couldn’t be totally invented.

Woman Claims Painting Haunted By Headless Ghost

skitched-20111104-192004.jpg

It’s a painted picture of a paranormal photograph. But aside from alliteration, it’s also haunted by the headless ghost captured in the photo and immortalized in the artwork.

Office Havoc. I took the framed painting with some others for a display in a business location. We hung the ghost painting on the wall behind an office desk. Three days later, people from the office called and asked me to come pick up the ghost painting. Every morning, they claimed, the painting was crooked. They would straighten it, and the next morning it would be crooked again. Also, appointments were inexplicably messed up and papers went missing. They were actually afraid of it. I took the painting back.

skitched-20111104-192143.jpg

Sure, a few mussed papers, no biggie. But wait! It even communes with zombies from the deep!

My husband and I were sitting in the garage talking to the little neighbor girl who had come over to visit. On the garage wall were three large dried starfish. They were hanging securely on roofing nails. The garage door was open, but there was no wind blowing or air movement. Suddenly, the largest starfish came sailing off the wall and landed on the concrete floor. It sailed across the floor about six to seven feet.

And still more! It cheats at cards! This spectral fiend has a missing sportsmanship to go along with the lack of head.

Our neighbor wanted to show his mother-in-law the photos of my paintings and took them home with him. They left the pictures laying on the table and started playing a three-handed card game in which a dummy hand must be dealt. When they picked up the dummy hand, every card of the dummy hand was in one suit. That scared them to death, he told me.

If you have any information on this, please pass it along.
