It’s amazing when even a single Gold Rush era gold coin is found, let alone a thousand of them. But that’s the sort of phenomenal find that a Sierra, Nevada couple ran across last month and they didn’t have to go far to find it – it was buried right in their backyard. Dubbed the Saddle Ridge Hoard, it is believed to be the biggest hoard of gold coins ever unearthed in the United States. Valued at $10 million dollars, the find has left some wondering if the newly discovered cache is long-lost stolen loot from an unsolved San Francisco Mint heist in 1901.
Translation of 1,200-year-old Egyptian manuscript proposes Jesus could change his appearance and shape at will
A set of 1,200-year-old ancient Coptic Egyptian texts was discovered many years ago in the library of an abandoned monastery in the Egyptian desert. The text is interesting, not because it proposes that the strange series of events really happened, but rather because it demonstrates what some people believed at that time – and apparently two-thousand years ago some people thought Jesus would, on occasion, make himself invisible and change his appearance at will, a “shapeshifter” so-to-speak.
There’s more to the Easter Island Heads than meets the eye. In fact, if you dig under them, you’ll discover not only complete odd-shaped bodies but strange, undecipherable symbols and petroglyphs etched into the statues’ 20-foot-tall torsos.
The demonic haunting and possession of the Latoya Ammons and her family will go down in history as one of the best documented and most widely witnessed demonic possession in history. With over 800 pages of official documentation and dozens of first-person accounts from reliable eyewitnesses including police officers, a police captain, Department of Child Services officials, security guards, ministers, psychologists, and a Catholic priest, many consider the case to one of the best examples of demonic possession to date
Reports of ghostly apparitions at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue are nothing new. The White house maintains a haunted legacy that dates back well over 200 years. At least a half a dozen presidents, at least as many first ladies, and dozens of notable dignitaries have reported ghostly happenings at the White House.
Can’t say we blame them. With some of the worst pollution and only 10% of the population owning cars, a vending machine that dispenses cheap electric rental cars seems like a no-brainer to us. Wait a minute – a *vending machine* that dispense cars?!?! In Hangzhou, China, citizens walk up to the multi-story Kandi Car garage, insert their credit card, push a few buttons, and viola, a fully-charged electric vehicle is retrieved via robotic arms, tracks, and elevators and deposited at their feet.
Colorado Bigfoot – hundreds of sasquatch sightings draw attention to elusive creature hiding in Colorado’s remote mountains
Encompassing most of the Southern Rocky Mountains as well as the northeastern portion of the Colorado Plateau and the western edge of the Great Plains, Colorado’s remote wilderness areas remain largely uninhabited – except for the many hikers and backpackers who traverse the area. Perfect habitat for Bigfoot and in fact, during the past 50 years, there have been hundreds of documented Bigfoot sightings in the wilderness areas of Colorado.
Off a scenic Minnesota highway is a freak of nature that doesn’t take a pair of binoculars or hours of silent stalking to spot. The Devil’s Kettle Falls is located on the Brule River where the river forks at a rock outcropping to form two waterfalls. The eastern flow is pretty normal – it plunges fifty feet and continues downstream towards Lake Superior. The western flow however, tumbles thirty feet into a massive hole and disappears underground. To date, scientists and researchers have been unable to unravel the mystery of where the immense volume of water goes making the most preposterous theory, that the water drops straight into hell, not such a fleeting notion after all.
80-year-old Iranian Amou Haji has not bathed in over 60 years, giving his skin and clothing an earth-tone that allows him to blend into his surroundings. Believing that cleanliness will only make him ill, the only water he comes into contact with is the 1 ½ gallons of water he drinks each day from an old, rusty oil can. And his curious lifestyle choices do not end there…
The unsolved Max Headroom Incident – pirates hijack Chicago TV broadcast to air bizarre and creepy tirade (1987)
Before the advent of the Internet and widespread existence of a coordinated “hacking” culture, a strange and eerie incident occurred during a November 22, 1987 broadcast on WTTW-11 Chicago of Dr. Who, when a still-unidentified hacker took over the station’s broadcast replacing a brief section of the evening’s program with a creepy montage of a masked Max Headroom figure spouting bizarre, and often unintelligible, statements at the camera. To date, how the perpetrators hijacked the television station’s broadcast is unknown and the culprit(s) have never been found or identified. All that remains is an inexplicable video recording of the event and a mystery that has lingered for more than two decades.
Called “coffin apartments”, they’re Japan’s and China’s solution to cheap housing for the poor and underprivileged citizens. Designed to fit a single bed and not even tall enough to stand up in, these tiny apartments are stacked atop each other to maximize space – and profits. Hidden amid the multi-million dollar high-rise apartments in Tokyo and gleaming skyscrapers in Hong Kong, they are not for the claustrophobic.
The mysterious case of Elisa Lam – bizarre behavior caught on video prefaces drowning death in hotel rooftop water tank
In February 2013, after hotel residents complained of funny-tasting water and poor water pressure, 21-year-old Elisa Lam, a student from Vancouver, Canada, was found dead inside the Cecil Hotel’s rooftop water tank in Los Angeles. The coroner’s finding was surprising to many – accidental death by drowning – despite the fact that no drugs nor alcohol were found during autopsy of Lam’s body. Even more disturbing, an elevator surveillance tape recorded Elisa’s bizarre behavior just moments before her death.
On May 24, 1913, up-and-coming boxer Luther McCarty kissed his wife and young son goodbye and headed from his home in Wild Horse Canyon, Nebraska to the boxing ring in Calgary, Alberta where the heavyweight hopeful would face his next opponent, Arthur Pelkey. The match would not proceed beyond the first round and the boxing world would forever wonder how good Luther McCarty could have been. A ghostly ray of light that pierced through the roof to momentarily spotlight McCarty’s lifeless body, would be captured on film and come to be known as “Ten Seconds of Light”.
Not much is known about this new, hotly-debated picture that surfaced yesterday other than it was shot in an abandoned elementary school in a rural, mountainous area of the United States and it shows no signs of trickery. The picture was shot with his cell phone and the photographer claims he did not notice the small child until after he downloaded the photos from his phone.
Are children more psychic than adults? From the mouths of babes – true stories that will scare you speechless
It is often said that children have a sixth sense that is particularly attuned to spirits of those who have passed away. The predominant cause cited is because their conscious minds, controlled primarily by the left brain, are not as developed as adults. Others feel their laser-sharp psychic ability is simply because they are more open to possibilities than “trained” adults who over time, program children to tune out and dismiss anything they see and hear that doesn’t fit into the physical world.
