    Growing up in Mexico you can’t help but develop a vast knowledge of paranormal related folklore. Like American kids and their indoctrination of the history of the pilgrims, Mexican kids are indoctrinated with tales of the Aztecs and their human sacrifices and tales of ghosts, gnomes and devils. Teachers would talk about the Aztecs’ role

  • Poltergeist Fires In Botswana5

    • March 20, 2011

    When I read stories about spontaneous fires plaguing a home I don’t immediately think that it’s paranormal. My first thought is that there is human intervention with these ‘phantom fires’. Not being cynical or anything, but most reports that I’ve read about these ‘phantom fires’ usually turn up to be some family member who is

    Seems reader/commenter hucksterfoot is on the ball with this one. He turned us on to the site ‘badghosts’ and an writeup there by bobdezon. Ol’ bob has a very good theory and it’s one that I’m more than inclined to agree with. Here is and excerpt from his article. Perhaps the most striking feature of

    It would seem that hucksters and hoaxers were faking ghost photos almost as long as photography has been around. Simple double exposure, something we see as amateurish today was a trick that few had even heard of in the 19th century. One of the best at doing such eerie images of ghosts and paranormal goings

    New Zealand hosted a competition in which hundreds of pictures were submitted from all over the country to a panel of judges.

  • ‘black eyed kids’ paranormal phenomenon?8

    • April 14, 2009

    I’ve read of cases where people described running into odd acting children, that appear to be in a “disconnected state” and act in a very lethargic manner who have full black eyes. I don’t mean bruising around their eyes, but black eyeballs. Completely dark. From the Shadows has this interesting post from a woman who

  • Intelligent ghosts and questionable investigating9

    • March 14, 2009

    It’s seems pretty common place nowadays that every city larger than a town has a ‘paranormal investigator’ in it. These investigators by default and by the large part, are weekend ghost hunters looking to catch a phantom in the act, either visually or audibly. Again and again, many of these investigators go about their weekend hobby only to come up short with an inconclusive result. Surely, with so many paranormal events occuring one has to wonder. Are the ghosts actually outsmarting the investigators?

    Any ghosts with your coffee today?I’m not sure I know anyone in my life that drinks up to 7 cups of coffee a day, but I do know people that drink RedBull like it’s water. If I had an¬†automatic espresso machine at home, maybe I would get closer to that 7 cup mark but for
