    The Transdimensional Gas Station

    I too think it's most likely fiction but well told, with a good snappy memorable title, & it's produced enough intrigue to last 19 pages & 14 years of responses so far. The receipt never materialised did it? & the op vanished fairly early on.. If it were posted in another thread, Time Slips eg...

    'Ghost Hunting' Shows Are Getting So Bad That It's Beyond Amusing

    It's a radio receiver that scans wavebands & also produces high frequency white noise which apparently helps spirits in communicating. It will tune in to a radio station for a brief moment & pick up whatever is being broadcast before moving on to the next. How long it stays on each broadcast for...

    Dybbuk / Dibbuk Boxes: From Scroll Cabinet To Ghost-Hunting Fad

    Seems odd that the Rabbi's note said it couldn't be hidden yet it was hidden in the chimney. He seems to have contradicted his own pronouncement. And what happened to this box, seeing as this happened 30 years ago. Have you still got it or did you sell or trade it, did you look inside & if so...

    Know Any Haunted Dolls?

    Setting aside the details of the story, the fact you won't say it happened solidifies it as fiction, if one had any doubts before. Why would someone who's experienced weirdness not say so openly? Otherwise it's just a story.

    Entomophagy: Eating Insects / Insects As Food

    If you were brought up in a culture where people ate insects, it would be entirely normal to you. It seems odd/unappetising/disgusting to Westerners because we don't, generally. Some African tribes eat termites I think, sometimes pressed into patties or cakes.

    'My Baby Monitor Is Haunted’: Tales Of Parental Fright

    I used to have a fuzz box which picked up random nearby taxi/minicab radio voices. Or maybe it was haunted. I couldn't access the WSJ article in the OP without opening an account. Was there a photo of the humanlike figure?

    Hong Kong Protests, Umbrella Movement

    Hong Kong Protests, Umbrella Movement

    You haven't been paying attention. Have you not seen the videos of gangs running amok beating people with sticks & metal poles? They've been filmed consorting with police & the police don't seem interested in doing much to stop them. They may not openly be doing the beatings but they're more or...

    Historic UFO Encounters: Newspaper Articles

    Looking at Wiki, the Lightning seems to have been remarkably accident prone. In 1970, the year of this incident, there were 7 losses & 4 pilots killed. It is odd if the canopy was still on when they found it.

    Russian (Nuclear?) Missile Explosion Incident (2019)

    I think that's footage of the Siberian ammo dump which went up recently & not the nuclear powered missile they're connecting it to. Not nuclear. Impressive shockwave though.. This one. There's other footage of it around on the net.

    Hard to know wtf is going on. I'm not seeing your view of the red car being the target - why would they overtake a car that's chasing them?

    Jeffrey Epstein Suicide Or Murder: Speculation

    That's probably true of pretty much any prison you care to name. How much equipment do you need to hang yourself? Any stoutish material could do the job. It's extremely convenient though, & despite the fact he was on suicide watch. If he was. Maybe he was banged to rights & couldn't face the...

    Missing 411: The Film

    I said this before on another thread, but my impression of Paulides is there's a fair degree of bullshit, exaggeration & speculation in his output.

    There's an interesting article here about ultrasonics & whether some people are affected by them. It has a video of a tone generator running continuously from 20hz to 20khz if you want to see what you can hear. I've got high end loss & don't hear anything after 12khz.
