Here's how to play. Presented here and on following pages are four stories of the unexplained. But only three of them are true (according to the people who experienced them). One story was invented by your About.com Guide. Your job is to read all four of the stories and then vote for the one you think is false. Good luck!
Story 1: Doorway to the Past
In 1963, Colleen Buterbaugh was the secretary for the dean of Wesleyan University in Lincoln, Nebraska. One October of that year, Ms. Buterbaugh somehow stepped back in time. She was on her way to deliver a message for the dean and opened the door to an office she had been in many times before. But this time it was different. A musty odor hung in the room. Standing in the room was a tall woman with dark hair and wearing an old-fashioned floor-length skirt. Ms. Buterbaugh was puzzled as she had never seen this woman before. Oddly, the dark-haired woman seemed not to notice Ms. Buterbaughs entrance at all; she raised an arm toward some shelves... and faded away into nothingness. The woman looked solid enough, so Ms. Buterbaugh did not consider at first she might be a ghost. But who was actually the phantom in the room? When Ms. Buterbaugh looked out the office window, all of the modern buildings and familiar streets were gone, replaced by a vacant, open field. She ran terrified from the room. Regaining her composure after some time, she finally related her experience to the dean and then to another faculty member who had been on the campus since 1900. He was able to find old photographs of the campus as it appeared in 1915 and it looked very much as Ms. Buterbaugh had seen it out the window. Moreover, they even identified the dark-haired woman a teacher who had died in that strange office back in the 1930s.
