Just the Facts? Celebrity Doppelgangers, Tennessee Shaking and Spooky Image Goes Viral

John Travolta...Doppelganger?

He is a member of the Church of Scientology, which believes in reincarnation and asks some members to sign one billion year contracts of service.

And one photograph collector in Ontario, Canada, claims he has found a picture of John Travolta from a previous incarnation in 1860.

The 150-year-old photo of a man who looks remarkably like Travolta has been put up for sale on eBay.

'I've had this interesting photograph for years and I've been unable to part with it,' the seller said on the auction site.

'When you look at it and into the eyes of the sitter you will see what I mean!

'I believe this is the photograph of a very young John Travolta taken around 1860... This is a ruby glass ambrotype photograph and it is one of a kind.

'It hasn't been changed, tampered with or altered in anyway. It is clear and is as nice as the day it was taken roughly 151 years ago.

The photo is listed at $50,000 or nearest offer, and while it has a large price tag comes with free shipping and gift wrapping. - dailymail

Tennessee residents terrified by mysterious shaking

Adrienne Hooker doesn't feel safe at home. Her Blount County neighborhood has a problem - it shakes.

For 2 days, the house rocks every few hours. It can sound like an explosion.

She describes it like this: "Tiny earthquakes, makes the whole house shake it makes everyone wake up if they're sleeping."

They've called the U.S. Geological Survey, but no earthquakes have been reported.

They thought it might be construction at a nearby house, but the Blount County Sheriff's Office checked. Another dead end.

The "what" isn't all that important, they just want it to stop. - volunteertv


Spooky image goes viral

CCTV footage posted on YouTube appears to show the 'ghost' of a young girl haunting a well-known mobile phone store

A spooky-looking female figure can be seen walking past a doorway at the back of the store, pausing to turn her head and look straight into the recording surveillance camera.

The opening credits state that today's shop was "built on the site of a Victorian orphanage" — suggesting that the 'spirit' is one of its dead orphans.

The credits add that this is an authentic ghost sighting: "This is genuine footage which has been examined by experts.

"They were unable to provide any answers."

Andrew Dasilva, who came across the video and posted it on YouTube, said: "I couldn't believe this when I saw it, it freaked me out.

"I said to my mate that we had to put it out there so people could make a judgement for themselves.

"I still don't know what to think of it. It's absolutely surreal." - thesun


Mystery as beached whale found in field in Yorkshire

A young whale which died after it beached in the Humber Estuary is probably of a species rarely found stranded on the British coast, conservationists have said. Experts examining the 33ft (10m) long animal, which died about 875 yards (800m) from the shoreline, say they are 95% sure it is a female sei whale.

The animal was trapped in shallow water near the East Yorkshire village of Skeffling, on the north bank of the River Humber. Andy Gibson, of the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust, said Sei whale strandings were very rare. He said there had only been three strandings of this species in UK waters in the last 20 years.

''It is sad. It was in shallow water of about 1.2m (4ft) to 1.6m (5.25ft), making contact with the bottom,'' Mr Gibson said. ''This was about 800m offshore. When it gets in that situation it rolls onto its side and it can cover its blow hole.'' But Mr Gibson said: ''It is sad but we will be able to learn a lot from it.''

The whale is the latest of a number to have died in the Humber estuary area recently. Whale experts admit they do not know why there has been an upsurge in sightings and strandings. Some believe it could be due to changes in ocean currents bringing colder streams of Arctic water into the shallow North Sea. - telegraph
