Thorpe Park Moved Ride Due to Haunting

One of the UK's biggest theme parks was forced to move a new ride to another part of the property earlier this month. Why? This decision was made after fears rose they had disturbed an ancient burial ground, resulting in paranormal activity.

Workers building the water ride at Thorpe Park in Surrey said they started witnessing ghostly sightings nearby, including what appeared to be a headless monk. There were also reports of objects being moved, workers feeling like they're being watched and cold spots.

To further look in to the matter, a paranormal investigation team, South West London Paranormal, was called in to look into the matter. They determined, using investigative techniques, Quija board sessions and mediums, an ancient burial ground or settlement may have been disturbed.

The 64ft-tall water ride, Storm Surge, was originally planned for an area known as Monk's Walk, an old footpath that has linked the ruins of nearby Chertsey Abbey to Thorpe Church since 666 AD. Th…

The Emela-ntouka is a mythic African legendary creature among the Pygmy tribes. Its name means "killer of the elephants" in the Lingala language and is also known as the Aseka-moke, Njago-gunda, Ngamba-namae, Chipekwe or Irizima.

The Emela-ntouka is around the size of an African Bush Elephant, brownish to gray in color, with a heavy tail, and a body of similar to a rhinoceros. It has one long horn on its snout although it is unknown what the horn is made of whether it be ivory, bone or keratin. It is described as having no frills or ridges along the neck. The animal is alleged to be semi-aquatic and feed on Malombo and other leafy plants. The Emela-ntouka is known to snort, rumble or growl.

Super Bowl Myths

In honor of the Green Bay Packers big Super Bowl win, I thought we would explore a few myths tied to the annual event:

1. Myth: Before Super Bowl XXII between Washington and Denver, a reporter asked Redskins quarterback Doug Williams, "How long have you been a black quarterback?" -There seems a misunderstanding led to this myth. In 1988, Doug Williams was the first black quarterback to play in the Super Bowl and thus, was bombarded with various race related questions. One particular reporter asked Williams this poorly worded question: "Doug, obviously you've been a black quarterback your whole life. When did race began to matter to people?" Williams misunderstood the question and responded, "How long have you been a black quarterback?" Due to the monumental circumstances, this question began popping up in various news articles after Super Bowl XXII.

2. Myth: There's an increase in domestic violence on Super Bowl Sunday. - In 1993, a coalition of w…

There's Something Under the Bed Review

New Page Books, (August 5, 2010)
Paperback, 224 pages
ISBN: 978-1601631343
Ordering Information:

Boogey monsters? Creepy crawlies? In There’s Something Under the Bed!, author Ursula Bielski explores the relationship children have with the paranormal, stemming from her own experiences as a young child. There’s Something Under the Bed! highlights many topics, including ghosts, fairies, imaginary friends, past lives, and even occult games.

Bielski helps to paint a clear picture of the sometimes startling realities behind what many parents believe is their child’s overactive imagination. As parents, it can be easy to brush off a child’s insistence that someone else is in the room by dismissing fears, or making light of the situation. Rather than engage in fear-based confirmations, parents can help to encourage children to understand what they see and hear in the world around them, even if they themselves do not see and hear them. Extremely well-written, this informat…

The Legend of Lucy Keyes

How can a four-year-old girl disappear without a trace? Robert Keyes moved his family to Princeton, Massachusetts in 1751, purchasing 200 acres of land on the South-Eastern slope of the Wachusett Mountain. Four years later on April 14th, his daughter Lucy (4) followed her sisters to Wachusett Lake for some sand. This adventure in the woods would be her last. Lucy never returned home.

The townspeople created search parties, drained the lake, but came up empty-handed. Lucy's mother, Martha scoured the woods, calling for her. Night after night, she searched the woods. Her grief overwhelmed her sanity. She died in 1786 never knowing what happened to her daughter.

There are many theories as to what happened to Lucy Keyes. There was a letter found after Martha and Robert Keyes had died. This letter was from the Keyes' neighbor Tilly Littlejohn written on his deathbed. He had a quarrel with the Keyes over property line. and resented the family's happiness. When he spotted Lucy Ke…
