    I told you Nancy Pelosi belongs in a mental institution and she has definitely proved it now. She told a recent gathering of the Women’s Political Committtee that spirits of Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth cady Stanton and Alice Paul spoke to her at the White House. Seriously, I’m not kidding. She said she heard them say, “At last we have a seat at the table.” Pelosi tells the women, “He’s (Bush) saying something to the effect of we’re so glad to welcome you here, congratulations and I know you’ll probably have some different things to say about what is going...

    Do you believe in ghosts? Surveillance video from a Tarrant County convenient store could change your mind. The video recorded Monday night shows a black image moving from left to right, then disappearing outside the Skip's Food Mart in Sansom Park. The store's manager told NBC 5 they’ve had motion detector alarms go off in the past, but could never explain a cause. Maybe until now.

    Japan is a culture that loves stories of creepy monsters, scary ghouls and vengeful ghosts.... There are so many different kinds of creatures inhabiting the misty realms of Japanese folklore that sometimes it seems that every square meter of the country must be teeming with mythical creatures. Even buildings and cities have their own ghost stories, and that even includes restrooms! Yes, Japan’s bathrooms are haunted by an eclectic mix of spirits, ghouls and monsters. Some are shy, some are violent, and at least one wants to lick up your tub grime. So, ranging from least to most dangerous, here...
  • Bisbee, the haunted Eerie encounters

    Sierra Vista Herald ^ | Monique Brand
    BISBEE — Believe it or not, Bisbee has some amazing ghost stories, a few of which are so interesting that they'll be aired nationally on an upcoming tv show. These tales of spirits are told everyday either by longtime locals or employees of haunted businesses. Steven Reed, the general manager of the Copper Queen Hotel, said there are about 2,400 pages of written ghost encounters inside of the hotel’s eight guest books. Most guests have penned only their first names — and sometimes their room numbers — to identify themselves. One encounter includes the experience of a young girl named...
  • Rooney Mara Never Tried Pie Until Last Year (31 Years Old)

    We all know Rooney Mara is many things: an actress, “aloof” (her word), a romantic colonic-haver. But we had no idea that she was also a person who never tried pie before the age of 31, at which point she finally ate the dessert for an extremely long pie-related scene in a movie. During an interview with the Los Angeles Times, the star of A Ghost Story was asked about the scene, in which Mara’s character emotionally eats an entire chocolate-cream pie in silence while grieving the death of her partner. “It was such a unique way of showing grief,...

    The Japanese games company Bandai Namco says Masaya Nakamura, the "Father of Pac-Man" who founded the Japanese video game company behind the hit creature-gobbling game, has died at age 91. Nakamura, who died on Jan. 22, held an honorary position at Bandai Namco, formed in 2005 from a merger of two game companies. He founded Namco in 1955. Its beginnings were humble--just two mechanical horses on the rooftop of a department store. Pac-Man, designed by video game maker Toru Iwatani, went on sale in 1980. Guinness World Record has named it the world's most successful coin-operated arcade game. Bandai Namco...

    It wouldn't be a stretch of the truth to say that everyone enjoys a nice trip to the park. Kids. Adults. Lovers. Families. Even ghosts. Rhode Island resident Scott Denton has supposed proof of the latter in the form of a one minute and 20-second video of what appears to be a ghost on a swing while he and his children watch in terror from the safety of their truck. The video, which Denton posted to social media on June 28, now has well over six million views. Video at website.
  • Seen a ghost? Then you may have inhaled toxic mould: Poor air quality in old buildings

    If you think you have seen a ghost, you may have been suffering the effects of exposure to mould, according to a group of scientists. Researchers claim that older buildings where hauntings are usually reported, often have poor air quality from pollutants like toxic mould, which can affect our brains. Exposure to the mould can cause mood swings, irrational anger and cognitive impairment. ‘Experiences reported in many hauntings are similar to mental or neurological symptoms reported by individuals exposed to toxic moulds,’ said Professor Shane Rogers of Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York. ‘Psychoactive effects of some fungi are well-known,...

  • Why Do People Believe in Ghosts?

    In June, Sheila Sillery-Walsh, a British tourist visiting the historic island-prison of Alcatraz in San Francisco, claimed that she captured an image of a ghost in a picture she snapped on her iPhone. In the frame of what was otherwise supposed to be a picture of an empty prison cell was a blurry black and white image of a woman. The story, which was printed in the British tabloid the Daily Mail, featured on the Bay Area's local KRON4 TV station and mocked by SFist, isn't the first time the Daily Mail has claimed that strange images have come up...

    Owner of Bombay Palace in Upper Northgate Street unnerved by snapshotThis ghoulish face peering out of the darkness from the gents in a city centre Indian restaurant is enough to give anybody the willies. Aaron Ali, co-owner of the family-run Bombay Palace restaurant in Upper Northgate Street, Chester, was sitting in the dark at the front of the eating house about 3am one morning, just before last Christmas, when he heard the sound of a door banging. Everybody else had gone home, except for the waiter who had retired to his upstairs living quarters, and Mr Ali decided to film...

    The Examiner ^ | 1/30/14 | Joseph Speranzella
    “OMG! Call Sam and Dean Winchester!”, was the comment on a YouTube video about the Illuminati and the music business. I thought this was funny! I watch the CW show “Supernatural”, where the Winchester brothers fight evil monsters and demons with the help of sometimes flawed angels. But we all know that demons (and the Illuminati) are not real, don't we? Many news services are beginning to rethink that. A story is circulating through the news outlets about a haunting and possession in Gary Indiana. The report tells of an single mother and two of her children who have been...

    A staircase with spooks, a bathroom that goes Boo!, and sparkling finished hardwood floors – this Pennsylvania house has it all, almost. In the listing for his 1901 Victorian house at 1217 Marion St., Dunmore, Pa., Greg Leeson is asking for $144,000, but he adds that the house is "slightly haunted, nothing serious, though.” Here is what the prospective buyer will get for his money besides the four walls and roof: The sounds of phantom footsteps, a strange knocking, a "hardly noticeable" scream at 3:13 a.m. (once a week), and "the occasional ghastly visage lurking behind you in the bathroom...

    Ghosts. The disembodied spirits of the dead. The inexplicable intelligence that animates living tissue and continues to exist after hearts shutdown and organs cease. Do they walk the earth? Are they real? As a kid I thought so. Now? I don't know really. Little did I know one day I was going to find myself in ghost central - a crossroad in the realm of the living dead. In 2004 I was working at Salt Lake Regional Medical Center (SLRMC) in downtown Salt Lake City. My office was on the fifth and top floor in an office building on the...

    Located kitty corner from the LDS Conference Center, McCune Mansion is a structure noticed by many for its breathtaking architectural beauty. Most, however, do not know the name of the building nor anything about its history or the ghostly activities alleged to have occurred inside. ...They donated the property to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who used it as the McCune School of Music and later as the Brigham Young University Salt Lake City Center. Since then it has been used as a dance studio and today as a venue for wedding receptions and other events. Over...

SNIP Does the afterlife theology of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS or Mormon) leave any room for a Mormon belief in ghosts? Mormonism and Spirits The LDS church believes that everyone has a spirit (sometimes called a "soul" in other theologies,) which is believed to continue living independently of the body after its death. Since a ghost is defined as "a disembodied soul" (Merriam-Webster's Dictionary,) Mormons technically do believe in ghosts....

    St. George Mormon Temple Haunted? Did the Declaration of Independence signers appear as ghosts to a later Lds 'prophet'? Without saying his name, Mormon leaders and grassroots Mormons daily reference Wilford Woodruff when they interact with non-Mormons and the media. How so? Well, they like to tell others how polygamy is a supposed bygone of another era; how a certain Lds "prophet" in 1890 put the kabosh on it...or, at least, started a mainstream Mormon move toward monogamy. Yet, there's a little-known episode that this same Wilford Woodruff said that occurred in the 1870s -- before becoming the head "prophet"...

    The Wall Street Journal ^ | 11/8/12 | Steve Dollar
    One of pop culture's most enduring nightmares began 37 years ago this December in the bucolic bayside town of Amityville, on Long Island. That winter, George and Kathy Lutz and her three children from a previous marriage moved into a Dutch colonial house at 112 Ocean Ave, about 30 miles east of the city. Over the next 28 days, they contended, the family endured an onslaught of bizarre events that ranged from inexplicable hordes of flies to demonic visions. The Lutzes fled, leaving all their possessions behind. Their story, however, never went away. The 1977 book "The Amityville Horror: A...

    The dingy corridors and gloomy wards of a long-abandoned Saudi Arabian hospital have drawn hundreds of amateur ghost hunters who believe it to be haunted by jinn, the malevolent spirits of the Koran and Arabian mythology. The macabre fascination with Riyadh's Irqa Hospital, which treated Gulf War combatants in 1991, began with tweeted rumours and escalated to the point where hundreds of youths broke into the grounds, smashing windows and starting fires. "Teenagers sent text messages calling for an operation against some of the jinn who live in the hospital, and they broke into the hospital and smashed its facilities...
