Inspired by Russell Crowe's new film, our man tried his hand at dowsing.
In his new film, The Water Diviner, Russell Crowe plays a tough Australian bush farmer possessed of mystical powers, which he uses to divine that everything that subsequently goes wrong is the fault of the British.
Russell’s character travels to Turkey in 1919, hoping to learn the fate of his three sons who have failed to return from the Battle of Gallipoli, but his quest is thwarted by the hostility and snivelling incompetence of British officialdom, and his only reliable ally is his gift.
Divining is the ancient practice of holding rods or a forked branch, which supposedly react to the “energy” of things underground. Some claim that evidence of divining can be found in Neolithic cave paintings, but its popularity seems to have taken off in the 15th century as a method of finding metal deposits, and today in Britain there is a small but in-demand corps of professional diviners.

Here are six secret places that Google Earth has blocked, erased, whited out, or replaced with other images, along with the possible reasons.
Possibly one of the easiest ways to find secret government projects is to look at how well they are hidden in Google Earth. Government agencies, corporations, or private individuals can request that Google block satellite views of their location from Google Earth users. Some requests to “hide” their location are trivial while others can be quite revealing via their intent.
Here are several hidden Google Earth locations that are blocked, erased, whited out, or replaced with other images. Read more

Are voodoo and black magic real? Bestselling paranormal author Gare Allen examines the mysterious death of C. Wheeler.
In August of 2012, C. Wheeler, a retired man in his late sixties, was found dead in his bathtub inside his Florida home. Mr. Wheeler had not been seen for three days and his unmoved car in the driveway prompted his neighbors to investigate. Forcing their way into his home, the formidable stench of death confirmed their suspicions and they immediately called the authorities. With no signs of foul play, a break-in or fingerprints, police ruled the death a suicide and cited the kitchen carving knife embedded in Mr. Wheeler’s throat as the obvious cause of death.
Several days passed and Mr. Wheeler’s family had begun removing his personal belongings from the home in preparation of placing it on the market. His next door neighbor answered their door to find the late Mr. Wheeler’s elderly mother, hunched over and holding letters in one hand and a plain, white doll, made of yarn, in the other. Read more

Obama won't talk about UFOs, but one of his pilots saw one.
President Barack Obama’s former Counselor John Podesta said on the day he left office in February that his biggest regret was not securing the disclosure of the government’s UFO files.

How about one of Obama’s pilots? Read more

Lon Strickler presents a few of the more interesting accounts of Men in Black that he's collected.
As many of the readers know, the infamous 'Men in Black' phenomenon grabbed a foot-hold in paranormal nomenclature after these strange individuals were observed in and around Point Pleasant, WV during the 13 month period prior to the collapse of the Silver Bridge. The recent presentation of 'The John Keel Files' on 'Destination America' depicted much of the MIB activity that occurred in 1966-67.
Beyond that specific bizarre period of Mothman, UFO and other odd encounters, the MIB phenomenon continues to occasionally arise after civilian sightings of UFOs and alien beings.
As to their identity and purpose, there are many questions put forward by UFO researchers and enthusiasts. Are they human or non-terrestrial? Who do they represent or work for? Are they dangerous? Are they part of a government or universal conspiracy? What do they want to know?
Here are a few of the more interesting accounts I've collected over the years: Read more

Using a pendulum is one of the simplest and easiest forms of divination to learn. Richard Webster says a pendulum can literally work miracles.
A pendulum is a small weight attached to a length of chain or thread. When someone holds it by the thread and asks a question, the weight moves and provides the answer. It is an amazing tool that can be used for many different purposes.
Just recently, a friend of mine decided to buy a car. He looked through the advertisements in the daily paper and asked his pendulum about the cars that sounded interesting. The pendulum gave a positive response to six cars, and eventually told him which car he should buy. He looked at all six, and finally bought the car that the pendulum had indicated. Read more
