If You Think Witch Hunts Are A Thing Of The Past, You Haven’t Heard Of Carole Compton

If You Think Witch Hunts Are A Thing Of The Past, You Haven’t Heard Of Carole Compton

Blog
When you think of witches, the Salem trials are likely among the first things to pop into your mind. But what if I told you that witch hunts aren't exactly limited to the distant past? That's right -- in the 1980s, a Scottish nanny named Carole Compton was accused of practicing witchcraft after a series of strange occurrences caused her employers to suspect that something wasn't right about her. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); Compton's story is so bizarre, in fact, that she was even put on trial for that same accusation. After meeting and falling in love with an Italian man in 1982, Compton decided to move from Scotland to Italy so she could be closer to him. She quickly found work as a live-in nanny for the Ricci family. That's w...

I Didn’t Think It Was Possible, But These 2-Sentence Horror Stories Are Too Scary

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); Scary stories don't always have to be hundreds of pages long. The more skilled the writer is, the easier it is for them to convey the essence of the story in fewer words. And when I say "short stories," I'm not talking about those that are several pages or even several paragraphs long. I'm talking about two-sentence tales. Don't believe me? See how well you're able to sleep tonight after reading through these truncated nightmares. 1. "It sat on my shelf with thoughtless porcelain eyes and the prettiest pink doll dress I could find.

Here Are The 22 Most Unbelievable And Strange Ways People Have Died. It’s Morbidly Interesting.

Entertainment
Our lives are unique journeys, but so are our deaths. Every human life is like a snowflake, never to be repeated or copied in any way. No one can say they ever see their deaths coming, but it would have been impossible for these 22 people to even guess how it would happen for them. Some of these left me speechless. 1.) A Russian woman, Fagilyu Mukhametzyanov, died of a heart attack while at her own funeral, because doctors wrongly declared her deceased. 2.) A new bride, Maria Pantazopoulos, from Montreal drowned to death at her wedding photo shoot, when she fell into a river. 3.) A man, David Pendleton, after losing his wife, was fatally shot to death by his own burial plot. ...

Welcoming little ones into the world is preceded by months of planning, and picking out the perfect name might just be the most important decision of all. You have all the power because the name your choose for your bundle of joy will follow them into classrooms and job interviews forever. For that reason, you should probably take that job pretty seriously.Things get tricky when guardians start getting creative. Just ask the parents of these 14 kids. Teachers were asked to post the weirdest names they've ever encountered on their student rosters, and let's just say that these kiddos probably have it rough. 1.

These Bugs Might Look Weird, But That’s Just Because They’re Living Jewelry

Blog
I've always thought bug jewelry was cute. As a kid, wearing things like ladybug stud earrings was always fun, but there's no way I'd wear bug jewelry if the insects in question were actually real. Up until now, I assumed that most people tended to agree, but that's definitely not the case...at least not in Mexico, anyway. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); There's a huge craze there for really unusual broaches that are made out of beetles. Makech beetles come from Central and South America, where they are found under logs and caught by men known as los maquecheros.

9 Real-Life Ghost Encounters People Have Had After Watching Scary Movies

Blog
I've always been a huge fan of scary movies, but I won't lie. Some of them have given me horrible nightmares. Although I'm okay with the occasional bad dream because I love the genre so much, I don't think I could continue watching horror flicks if they brought real paranormal activity into my life. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); The people below know exactly what I mean, because they've shared seriously terrifying stories about what happened to them after watching (and even starring in) horror films. 1. Vera Farmiga, who starred in "The Conjuring" and "The Conjuring 2," said that when she went home from filming one night, she found three slashes across her laptop's screen. Director James Wan also saw his dog growling one night at...

Some Believe That This Video Is Proof That Teleportation Is Possible…Do You?

Blog
googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); Although I've always humorously wished that I had the power of teleporting everywhere so I'd never be late again, I never considered the possibility that it could really happen. However, after seeing the footage below, I'm not sure what to think anymore. While this person was driving on a Russian highway, their dash cam picked up strange footage that can't really be explained. As a truck swerves to the left, it looks as if a woman appears out of nowhere. Many viewers believe this is evidence of time travel and teleportation. It could be that the woman had been standing in the road and the truck driver just didn't notice, but something seems off about that. Why wouldn't ...

THIS Is The Reason Why You Should Have A Home Security System

Some people might think you're paranoid if you invest in a home security system. But the fact is that even if you don't have a history of break-ins, it's never a bad idea to be prepared. For evidence of this, I present the following video recorded on an admittedly terrible home security camera by Redditor drunle. In a post on the social sharing site, he says that the creepy figure in the video below is a regular stalker of his... I'd say it's time to invest in some better locks. However, this isn't the first time the YouTube user has been "stalked." YouTube In fact, he might be the one with the obsession. YouTube Or, he's making these fake stalking...
