Mysterious People Who Emerged From Accidents With Amazing Powers

Since time unremembered there have been those among us who have stepped forth with skills, abilities, genius, perceptions, and attributes far beyond the norm. In many cases these have stemmed from some sort of genetic predestination, or even defect, leaving the bearer of these powers with significant shortages in other areas. Yet many are not born into these powers, but rather have them thrust upon them. Just like any super…

Strange Vanishings and Spooky Letters

Mysterious vanishings are known not only for their often very strange circumstances, but also for the myriad bizarre clues they often leave behind, as well as the strange leads which frequently come in to more often than not only muddy the waters.

The Case of the Vanishing Lieutenant

To paraphrase Gilbert & Sullivan, Paul Byron Whipkey was the very model of a modern Army First Lieutenant. The 26-year-old was smart, brave, serious and disciplined, described as “an all-American young man and a superior officer.” He was, in short, one of the last people you could imagine being enveloped by The Weird. However, since he is featured on this blog, you have probably already guessed that this is exactly…

Pure Evil: Man Admits He’s Tired of Eating Human Flesh

“I’m tired of eating human flesh.” That’s not the first thing you’d expect a person to say after walking into a police station, but officers in Escourt, a town in the South African province of KwaZulu-Natal, had reason to believe this man was telling the truth – he was carrying part of a human leg and a hand. What’s worse, the man appears to be part of a cannibalistic syndicate…

Mystery ‘Metal Starfish’ Found Off Rhode Island Coast

The metallic starfish (credit: Peter Brockmann) As fans of Lost will attest, it’s not a good idea to lift a hatch, open a strange door or move an odd object without having some idea of what might happen next. That could be the reason why residents and government officials are in no hurry to remove a seemingly unmovable starfish-shaped metallic object found about 10 feet offshore at low tide on…

The Strange Disappearance of Jim Thompson

Vanishings happen all of the time, to people of all walks of life. This is not a phenomenon regulated to the destitute, down on their luck, or nobodies. Indeed there have been numerous high profile disappearances throughout history that have managed to shock not only because of their baffling nature, but also because of the high-profile status of the victims. Counting among some of the most puzzling of these is…

Strange Disappearances on the Highway of Death

Meandering straight across the continental United states, from San Francisco, California, to Teaneck, New Jersey is the vast Interstate 80, also called simply I-80. Constructed between the years of 1956 to 1986, and sprawled out over 2,902 miles of historic travel routes, I-80 is one of the most ambitious highway projects ever attempted in the country. It is also perhaps one of the most vital, an artery through the country…

Mysterious People Who Drove off the Face of the Earth

There are plenty of cases of vanished people who have seemingly stepped off the face of the earth to leave abandoned vehicles behind. However, even more curious is those cases where the disappeared have gone off to take a drive and completely vanished along with their vehicles, never to be seen or heard from again. It is one thing to have a person disappear, but for them to just melt…

The Mysterious Forest of Vanished Children

There are places in this world which seem to harbor ominous secrets and reverberate with the echoes of a dark history.

Zombie Caterpillars Climb to Tops of Trees and Explode

Let’s get this out of the way right up front: Exploding Zombie Caterpillars would be an awesome name for a band. However, you don’t want zombie caterpillar goo dripping down on you from trees and that’s what’s happening all over Britain as the fuzzy butterfly wannabes are never making it to the cocoon because a rare virus is eating away their brains and driving them to the tops of trees…

Mysterious Vanishings and Strange Deaths at Death Valley

Sprawled out over a large swath of Eastern California, in the United States is a vast expanse of arid desert wasteland covering around 3,000 sq mi (7,800 km2), known rather fittingly as Death Valley, located mostly within Inyo County, California. This is an unforgiving, desolate land, which is a stranger to rain and known as one of the hottest places in the world, with some the highest temperature ever recorded on earth, at 134 °F (56.7 °C),…

Secret Spells: Words of The English Language

Words can be more Powerful than Swords. Words have the power to cast spells and that’s why it’s called SPELLING. Words are vibrational energy. Words are not just elements of speech or writing, because they can be used to strengthen the effects of magic, which is the art of directing and controlling energy. When spoken out loud, words transform into frequencies and vibrations that can be used to direct energy. This is one…
