Daily 2 Cents: Dyatlov Deaths Explained? -- Child Ghost in Our House -- Sleep Epidemic in Russian Town

Dyatlov Deaths Explained?

Well...did you watch 'Russian Yeti: The Killer Lives" on Discovery Channel? As well, 'The Unexplained Files' offered a precursor to the documentary.

In 1959, nine Russian students mysteriously died while on a hiking trip in a remote area of the Ural Mountains. Fifty-five years later, American explorer Mike Libecki is reinvestigating the mystery – known as The Dyatlov Incident – but what he uncovers is truly horrifying. The hikers left a clue, a photograph, which suggests the cause of their horrific deaths could be the work of a creature thought only to exist in folklore: the creature known as the Yeti.

What did you think about the presentation? I could have done without the dramatic embellishment. I had a hard time understanding what was actually factual or not. Anyway, do you think that a Yeti was responsible for the horrible deaths? I'm not sure I buy into the explanation offered...too many variables. The Soviet secret documents seemed a bit contrived as well. What's your opinion? Lon

Is Bigfoot a Ground Sloth or Troll? (Tongue planted firmly in cheek)

Most Bigfoot believers assume Sasquatch is some sort of hominid. After all, he supposedly walks around on two legs, has primate-like arms, and even possesses a humanish face. Of course, there’s always the possibility he’s actually an extinct ground sloth that evolved to look like an ape. According to one far-out theory, Bigfoot might actually be a member of the superorder Xenarthra, which would make him related to anteaters and armadillos.

This theory may not be based on evidence, but it is based on lack of evidence. Sloths digest food slowly. It might take anywhere from one to three weeks for food to pass through a sloth’s guts. Perhaps that’s why we’ve never found the remains of a Bigfoot meal: Since he has a sloth gut, Bigfoot can go weeks without food.

The real nail in this crypto-coffin is the infamous Patterson-Gimlin film above. When you watch the video, pay special attention to how slowly Bigfoot moves. Why isn’t it running at breakneck speed to escape the backwoods paparazzi, you ask? Well, because it’s a slow sloth, naturally.

No, not the kind that posts irritating comments. We’re talking the sort that turns into stone in the sunlight and does battle with Jim Varney on Halloween.

Obviously, to accept this theory, you’ve got to believe trolls exist outside of Scandinavian folklore. Once you’ve cleared that minor hurdle, you can turn to the mountains of evidence. First, according to the theory, trolls are 90 percent mental and 10 percent physical, meaning they mostly exist in our imagination. In reality, a troll is more of a “vibration” than an actual being. In fact, it exists partly in our world and partly in another. And since trolls aren’t totally physically here on Earth, they show up quite blurry in Bigfoot photos.

Still not convinced? Well, consider that scientists have never found Bigfoot hair or DNA. Since trolls exist on a different plane, any physical evidence magically vanishes. If you were to find any concrete proof of Bigfoot’s existence, it’d turn into a stone or piece of straw the very next day. Finally, the most compelling piece of evidence is that Bigfoot tracks often disappear into thin air. You could be following a perfectly normal set of Sasquatch prints when, suddenly, they just vanish. That’s because trolls can appear and disappear at whim. - ListVerse


Child Ghost in Our House

When my mother was pregnant with us (my twin brother –Jonne- and I) we moved to a house next to a lake (upper Finland). This huge wooden house is more than 100yo, it has 3 stories and a huge terrace and amazing view to the lake. She used to tell us weird stories she experienced and when we grew older we experienced some too with my brother and dad. So one thing she first noticed (when it was winter time) was in the room where we have the stairs. It was always very cold there, even when the heating was on, but first we didn't really care about it because we used that room for going upstairs and down. This room originally was a study when we bought the house, and we never replaced the furniture. We kept the grand piano and the desk and some shelves. We got the heating system checked a several times but they didn’t understand the problem, we were told we might have lost the warm air because the windows were old but that’s impossible, because all the windows are the same, same age, same kind and this is the only room we experience it. The other thing was when in the middle of the night dad heard someone playing the piano. But in the family nobody plays it, so we blamed the cat… but what he heard was a very easy children’s song even a retard could play BUT not the cat walking on the piano randomly. It happened a several more times, even nowdays we hear it, but we try to ignore it. Tbh the same melody can be really freaky.

What’s more freaky and this is the part when my brother and I got very shocked. So mom explained when we were still babies sleeping upstairs she heard child laughter from the study, not only once, but everytime she walked in it stopped. Later on she made up her mind, it must have been the neighbour’s kid fooling around (that kid was 12yo at that time), once she even asked them to keep the Perttu (kid) in for the times Jonne and I were sleeping, but the laughter didn’t stop.

I have a very vivid memory about a little boy around our age playing with us when we grew around 4 just kindergarden time, I don’t remember his name but everytime Jonne and I played in the house, in the study he appeared and we played together, my bro remembers him as well. And when we told mom she didn’t understand who we were talking about. She though we made an imaginary friend, but even if we did, Jonne remembers the same little boy. We didn’t have any kids around our age living close to us except for the neighbour boy, but he was older. The little boy only appeared when we were playing in that room, like he was waiting for us, when we stepped into the kitchen he never followed. And I am really sure he was there because not only once our dog looked at him and he looked back and for me it seemed like the dog was scared to death and I didn’t understand why. Hide and seek was a common game, and he always asked us to hid in the study only, I never understood why but it was okay with us, although… this boy hid to the same place everytime, in the wardrobe under the stairs, like Harry Potter’s place. Once my brother hid with him and I coudn’t count to 10 because Jonne started yelling and crying to let him out, and by the time I realised what was going on mom rushed in opened the door and Jonne was out, and very frightened. Mom asked him something like – darling the door was opened, why did u crawl in there? It was the last time we saw our friend, although we never missed him. Later when I asked Jonne what happened there he always answered: - I don’t know, I don’t remember I just felt very cold suddenly and dark and I didn’t reach the door. I laughed at him, of course it was dark inside silly. I don’t know what could have happened inside, but I believe my brother didn’t see anything special.

We have still weird things going on today, this piano is one of them… the other one is that we can’t hear child laughter but that door under the stairs is sometimes opened by the morning, and at winter times when the window is blurry in the study, at some parts it’s clean like when someone leans close and breaths on it, but as I said we don’t use that room so no one from the family ever looks out of that window. When our cat was still alive she used to go crazy with the dogs and run around in the house, but when they got in the study except for the cat the dogs become very skittish, I don’t think they spent more than 10 minutes of their lives in there, only when we were around. - Reddit.com


Sleep Epidemic in Russian Town

The locals of Kalachi village in Kazakhstan and the almost abandoned Soviet town of Krasnogorsk, Russia have been suddenly falling asleep, and then waking up with no recollection of what happened.

More than 7,000 experiments into the soil, air, water and patient's blood, hair and nails have been carried out by scientists in these remote villages.

But so far, all results have come back inconclusive - although scientists fear leaking uranium could be to blame.

And villagers even fear that they buried an elderly man before the sleeping condition was known about, because they thought he was dead.

"I was milking cows, as usual, early in the morning, and fell asleep," said milkmaid Marina Felk. "I remember nothing at all, only that when I came round I was in a hospital ward."

The sleeping epidemic causes people, including children, to suddenly fall into a deep sleep, which can last from two to six days. Read more at Mystery as residents of Russian town fall asleep for SIX DAYS at a time
