    It appears as though only women are now living in the tiny village of Kasiguda, in the Nirmal district of Telangana, after reports of the ghost. Word of the reported ghost spread throughout the town of 60 residents after three people, including two brothers, were killed in the village within a three-month period. ... The few people who have remained go to sleep when the sun sets and do not leave their homes until sunrise the next morning. A woman in the town told Tamil News that the reported ghost had not attacked any women. No one plans to return...

  • Ancient humans had sex with a mysterious species, scientists discover

    HUMANITY has a filthy secret: our ancestors used to have sex with members of other species. That’s the finding in a new piece of research which suggests ancient people used to romp with a “ghost” species of proto human. We are just one of a number of species known as hominins. Members of this family include Neanderthals and Denisovans, which are no longer found on Earth. “It seems that interbreeding between different early hominin species is not the exception — it’s the norm,” said Omer Gokcumen, assistant professor of biological sciences at the University of Buffalo. Gokcumen tested the DNA...

    Several weeks ago the police arrived at our home in the middle of the day and informed us that a 911 call had originated from our residence. I was not home at the time, but my spouse, her friend, and some of my children were. Law enforcement was kindly informed that all was okay, and they moved on. When I heard of this, the first thought was that my little grandson perhaps dialed the number inadvertently. He's a curious little guy who knows how to climb up, grab a phone, and start pushing buttons. Since it was entirely possible he...

    On Saturday evening, many American children will encounter costumed ghosts as they roam the streets in search of candy and other treats on Halloween. Before bedtime, to avoid nightmares, some parents may try to reassure their kids that ghosts are not real. PF_13.10.31_Supernatural_310px (1)But not all of those parents may buy their own reassurances: Nearly one-in-five U.S. adults (18%) say they’ve seen or been in the presence of a ghost, according to a 2009 Pew Research Center survey. An even greater share – 29% – say they have felt in touch with someone who has already died. Claude Fischer, a...

    I’ll call him Fr. John. He was a charismatic Anglo Catholic priest. A friend of my brother Daryl’s we’ll call Henry died suddenly in a plane crash and he was upset because although Henry was a believer he was away from God when he died. So Fr. John said, “We have to have a requiem Mass for Henry.” They went into church and locked the door for privacy’s sake. Another priest we’ll call Fr. George celebrated the Mass. Henry was about twenty years old. He was just over five foot tall with a shock of blonde hair and a wide...

    ARLINGTON, Va. — A small company is offering to the Navy a small, high-speed craft that it says can take on some of the missions of the littoral combat ship (LCS) in regional operations.

The Ghost is designed to perform anti-surface (ASUW) and antisubmarine warfare (ASW) and mine countermeasures (MCM), the three intended roles of...

    SACRAMENTO, A Sacramento woman, who was dating a man that died of a drug overdose in 2005, claims that his ghost began haunting her 2002 GMC pickup just days after his death. Deanna Stinson says she had so many supernatural encounters with the deceased 22-year-old, that she sold the car. “I could feel touching on my hair and on my shoulders, on my thighs, just everywhere,” she told CBS Sacramento. “My concentration would be lost a lot of the times, but I would just pray, and then it would stop.” Stinson claims Alex’s presence would be especially strong when she...

    According to “experts,” a 1,565-ton cruise liner carrying disease-ridden rats is out there, somewhere, and could very well be headed for Britain. The ship, which went missing a year ago, has presumably been drifting across the North Atlantic ever since. The Independent‘s account of what happened next is based in some true facts, and then fluffed up with a lot of conjecture. Here’s what appears to be going on: Not made-up: ghost ships. That’s just the term used for ships with no living crew aboard, and according to Quartz, they’re not that rare — sailors have spotted at least seven...

    Welcome to Britain’s most haunted B&B - where terrified guests have been left so scared they have even jumped out of the windows. The Ancient Ram Inn, in the village of Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, is believed to be riddled with up to 20 spectres who torment the paying punters of the 12th century home. Built on an ancient pagan burial ground - and also believed to be the scene of child sacrifices and devil worship - the Cotswolds cottage is haunted by the likes of a murdered young girl called Rosie, a high priestess, and even a male sex demon, known...
