Telepathy on the brain

Haunting suspected in McCloud Century House
In 1993, when Steve and Elizabeth Clapper purchased the historic McCloud Century House, they had no idea that they would be getting a little something more than they bargained for. Finally, after what they call "repeated reports of suspicious and mysterious activities," they decided to call the Redding Paranormal Investigations team, which came to town last week...

The 'jelly' mystery
Question: What is this strange jelly people are finding on grassland throughout Scotland? A BBC Radio Scotland Out of Doors listener came across this mysterious substance in the Pentlands and his question has sparked quite a debate, with several people sending in their own photos of similar findings.

A haunted college
The Northwest Missouri State University campus, a usually tranquil garden of well-trimmed grass that stretches under the 1,300 trees of this state arboretum, is home to its share of triumphs - including a pair of Division II football national championships. But it's the tragedy that lingers long after the seasons are over, and students have gone home for summer. Like at any school, students have died while attending Northwest, but here some still walk down its majestic halls...

Most speculative fiction surrounding the American Civil War imagines how the world would be different had the Confederacy won its independence.

His fiberglass creations tell the tale of a group of Union soldiers who discover a lost valley of dinosaurs in Virginia and plot to use them as weapons against the South...

Reading, writing and ghost sightings
Witnessing a translucent human being as a little boy has a way of leaving a permanent imprint. Jason Offutt wasn't traumatized by the brown-haired kid wearing a flannel shirt that he saw through in his home in Orrick, Mo., as a pre-teen. It spurred an interest that he's turned into a book, a popular blog, a newspaper column and now a 300-level journalism class...

Woman's terror over ball lightning
A woman claimed yesterday to have seen two balls of lightning in her house in West Wales. Annie Dobson, from Kidwelly, said she was terrified to see the mysterious phenomena bouncing around her home. BBC weather presenter Derek Brockway said the incident was very unusual and potentially deadly. "For years, the very existence of ball lightning was controversial," he said. "Most scientists now accept that it does occur, but there is still no agreed explanation of what it is."..

Spooky spirits in pub
A haunted pub in Saddleworth gave a spooky night out for a team of visiting ghost-hunters. And plenty of ghostly presence was picked up by the professional ghost busters Tameside Paranormal at the Farrar's Arms, Grasscroft, on Wednesday night. A medium picked up a strong presence of Sarah, the pub's best known ghost...

Doomsday postponed?
In a September post, I pointed to a claim by a futurist outfit called the Arlington Institute that "something very substantial and disruptive is going to happen to the U.S. within the next 60 days or so." Well, the 60 days are up, and happily the catastrophe - whatever it was supposed to be - did not occur...
