Daily 2 Cents: The Grim Reaper Comes a Callin' -- Creepy Creatures Found -- Mass 'Demonic Possession'

The Grim Reaper Comes a Callin'

Howard in Ohio called in to tell of something strange he observed as a child:

“Back when I was a youngster, my grandfather was very ill. My whole family went down to Missouri to see things through. He was in the hospital at the time. We knew he didn't have much time left. Now I was 12, me and my older brother, we both were sitting out on the concrete bench out in front of the house. It was about 9 o’clock at night. This is a bench where, as kids, we'd sit out with grandpa twiddling away. It wasn't too long after it got dark, I looked down the street. It was an old country road, a gravel road. You can hear when people are walking down the road. And we see a figure drifting across the road. It was a black shadowy figure, like a black robe. In the driveway across from where we're sitting there's real thick gravel. You would not be able to go across there without making a sound. This figure drifts across the gravel right to the edge, about 15 feet from where my brother and I are sitting. We looked at each other and I was thinking to myself, grandpa is dead. As I thought that thought, the figure just bowed its head as if to do an affirmation bow, as in a yes. And drifted back. I looked at my brother. He looked at me and said, I saw it too, I think grandpa's dead. When we went into the house, I told my mom. My dad was at the hospital with my grandpa. I told my mom and my grandma, grandpa just died. No sooner then we said that did the phone ring, it was my dad stating the obvious. I think it was a close encounter with the grim reaper.”

Creepy Creatures Found in Cryptozoologist’s London Mansion

Born in 1782, Thomas Merrylin was a zoologist who specialized in cryptozoology, the study of creatures which have yet to be officially discovered, but it turns out that good old Thomas actually did a lot of discovering of his own. When builders started working on demolishing his mansion, they found the creepy shit you’ll see in the pictures below.

Take a look, but be prepared to have nightmares for the next several months.

So, are they really undiscovered animal species that he unearthed? Or are they just a big fat hoax? Forget the meaning of life; this is something that should keep great minds awake at night!

Merrylin also strangely kept his youthful appearance well into his 80s, so we could possibly be dealing with a vampire here. Check out the online database of his bizarre findings.


1/3 bird species in North America threatened with extinction

A billion birds have disappeared from North America since 1970, and a third of bird species across the continent are threatened with extinction, a new report says.

The first State of North America's Birds report finds that of 1,154 bird species that live in and migrate among Canada, the U.S. and Mexico, 432 are of "high concern" due to low or declining populations, shrinking ranges and threats such as human-caused habitat loss, invasive predators and climate change.

Steven Price, president of Bird Studies Canada, a member of the North American Bird Initiative behind the report, says that since 1970, "the estimate is we've lost at least a billion birds from North America…. The trend lines are continuing down. They have to be turned around or will fall below a threshold where they can be recovered."

Mass 'Demonic Possession'

The mass case of 'demonic possession' has caused some pupils to suffer from seizures while others have fainted at the school

Almost 100 schoolchildren are thought to have been 'possessed' by the devil - and see visions of a man in black trying to kill them.

In what has been described as a mass case of demonic possession, the pupils in Peru are experiencing seizures alongside their horrifying halluncinations.

Experts have struggled to explain the strange goings-on, which also include widespread convulsions and fainting at the school , reportedly built on a Mafia graveyard.

According to local reports, as many as 80 students at the Elsa Perea Flores School in northern Peru’s Tarapoto have been experiencing the supposedly contagious ‘condition’ since last month.

Children aged between 11 and 14 are reportedly fainting and having strong muscular convulsions.

Shocking video footage shows pupils who are barely conscious, repeatedly screaming, and who appear to be delirious.

Doctor Antony Choy told national channel Panamericana TV: "We don’t understand how this has kept on going on.

"We know it started on 29th April and now it is still happening. Now there are almost 80 pupils [still affected]."

Elsa de Pizango, a concerned mother whose daughter has experienced some of the symptoms, said: "She fainted in school. They didn’t say anything at the hospital. She just fainted. She keeps on spitting froth from her mouth."

A pupil, not named in local media, described their experience: "It’s disturbing for me to think about it. It’s as if someone kept on chasing me from behind. It was a tall man all dressed in black and with a big beard and it felt like he was trying to strangle me.

"My friends say I was screaming desperately, but I don’t remember much."

Another schoolgirl said she had trouble breathing and was desperately holding her neck as if someone was strangling her. According to her friends, she kept screaming: "Take it out."

Another anonymous girl, aged 13, told local media: "Several children from different classrooms fainted at the same time. I got nauseous and started vomiting. I heard voices. A man in black chased me and wanted to touch me."

Franklin Steiner, a parapsychologist who investigates paranormal and psychic phenomena - said: "It is known that years ago there were many victims of terrorism here. When this school was built, some say bones and dead bodies were found."

Locals believe this is a case of demonic interference, saying some children must have played games that invoke demons such as using a Ouija board.

A Ouija board is marked with letters and numbers and some use it to communicate with souls of the dead. Many religious organisations have warned against using the boards, saying that they can lead to demonic possession.

As of yet, there has been no rational or official explanation for the strange phenomenon. - Nearly 100 schoolchildren 'possessed by the devil' have 'contagious visions' of man in black trying to kill them
