Are you a woman who's unusually outspoken? Peculiarly bossy? Preternaturally clever? Is anything about you special or extraordinary in any way? Are you single?
Face it: You're probably a witch.
Why not unlock your inner hellcat and fix yourself up with a nice, unsuspecting man? Or extract your revenge on a mean, unbearable one? The secret to everlasting love or sweet vindication is simply your own willingness to embrace the darkness rooted deep within your heart.

Are immortals currently walking the earth? Taylor Leonard lists several rumored possibilites.
Humanity’s quest for immortality is as old as the human race itself. We now see a Renaissance of new transhumanist ideas that make it seem like technology will be the cure to mortality. What once belonged to the realm of gods and magic is now in the hands of researchers and science – results pending, of course. Though society as a whole may still be on the hunt for ways to live forever, some claim the feat has already been achieved by a small number of people. Here’s a list of these so-called immortals believed by some to be walking the Earth this very moment: Read more

Is there a logical explanation for the ghost cities that have mysteriously appeared over parts of China?
Imagine looking out a window at dusk on a misty evening and seeing the ghostly skyline of a mysterious city floating in the sky above you. This actually happened in early October when residents of Foshan, China, saw a mysterious ghost city hovering over their own city. It happened again a few days later in Jiangxi. Reports of these sightings recalled a similar ghost city appearing over a river in Huanshan City in 2011. Are these mirages, apparitions of ghost cities, views into another dimension or something else? Read more

Lon Strickler shares a reader account of a Tyrannosaurus Rex sighting in South Texas.
I received the following account a few days ago:
Hello - I noticed your article about small dinosaurs in Hebbronville, Texas. This witness was not exaggerating because I have seen an unknown animal in a field here in Hebbronville.
It was April 2011 and I was walking along W. David St. to my friend's house on Randada Rd. at about 5:45 PM. I had just gotten off work. On the side of the road where I was walking, I saw dust being kicked up into the air and moving along the field. Then the trail of dust was heading toward the road in front of me. I stopped walking not knowing what may be exiting at the road. Read more

A new FBI memo suggests that there may have been THREE crashes at Roswell, NewMexico.
A UFO museum that opened in Japan in 1994 was apparently the subject of Federal Bureau of Investigation scrutiny when it opened, according to recent Freedom of Information Access requests.
Employees at Hakui Centre for UFO Research came across what is known as the Hottel Memo while preparing a library of over 10,000 documents, that were to be the main attraction of the museum. The file -- which has otherwise been available since 1970 -- has come to light again, after further FOIA requests have uncovered that the FBI had opened a new investigation in the mid-nineties, over concerns regarding what other information might have been revealed by the Hakui Centre's exhibit.

What happens during the witching hour? Sean Foster explores the various beliefs.
Are you a believer in the supernatural? Do you believe that entities like ghosts, demons, witches and other magical creatures actually exist and live among us? If so, then you probably have heard about the witching hour.
As the name suggests, the witching hour is the time of day that people believe that these supernatural beings are most active and powerful. Many different communities have different hours of the day they refer to as the witching hour but the generally accepted time is between 3 a.m. and 4 a.m. Others believe that it is at midnight mainly because it is a special time when the day actually begins.What happens during the Witching Hour?

Listverse lists ten military installations famous for conspiracies and black projects.
Everyone knows about Area 51, supposedly the center of secret American UFO research and the most secret military installation in the world. While in reality the base has been used for the development of superbombers and stealth aircraft, conspiracy lore has it that it has also been used for a variety of more esoteric research and development projects, including reverse-engineering alien technology, time travel, weather control, teleportation, and energy weapons. Although Area 51 is the most notorious military installation beloved by conspiracy theorists, there are other bases and facilities around the world with their own stories and legends as well.

Are UFO sightings poltergeist events? A new hypothesis notes some similarities between the two phenomena.
On a recent episode of Coast to Coast AM, host George Knapp interviewed Dr. Eric Ouellet, professor of Defense Studies at the Royal Military College of Canada, about the idea of UFOs being poltergeist events. Quellet outlined his new hypothesis, which posits that UFOs could very well be manifestations of psychic forces humans are projecting onto the world around them. The hypothesis is the culmination of years of parapsychological research into poltergeists which shows that there seems to be a pattern to the activity. Ouellet applied this parapsychological methodology to historical waves of UFO activity and discovered notable similarities. Read more

Who was the Christ0like figure who walked Ancient America?
The Pale Prophet who visited the Americas in the first century A.D. certainly knew how to make an entrance the people would never forget. And the full story is told in what I, as the author, believe to be an exciting new book titled “The Search for the Pale Prophet in Ancient America,” published by my associate Tim Beckley's Global Communications. Beckley is now co-hosting, along with Tim R. Swartz, the podcast “Exploring the Bizarre” on the KCOR Digital Radio Network.
According to ancient native lore, when the Fair God first arrived at the Polynesian Islands it was with three ships with giant sails like enormous birds with wings uplifted, glowing goldenly in the dawn light. The people watching the events were frozen to immobility. Read more
