    Photograph Your Bookshelf

    It's always good to have a nosey at someone else's bookshelf. This is a small section of one of mine and like many, I suspect in here, have many more boxed up somewhere.

    Help Requested!

    I do not expect anything from this but hey ho, lets give it a go. I would like to move with the times and attempt to sell digital products online. As a base line of skills I have quite a solid knowledge of public domain material from stuff like many of us enjoy on here. What I lack is the...

    Fortean Travel

    Please move this if there is a similar thread. I just wondered about places that people had visited of Fortean interest perhaps to share their experiences of such places. We went to Parga a few years ago and loved it (we are going back this May). I thought I'd share a few photos of places of...

    Dog thefts

    We may be getting a dog in a few months and I can't help noticing posts on Facebook with pictures on people in vans saying watch out for these dog thieves. While slightly worrying it alarms me how easily people share such posts without ever thinking that perhaps the person in the van is innocent...

    Celebrity Ghost Stories query.

    I had been recording 'Celebrity Ghost Stories' from the Bio channel recently. I listen to them when I'm working on the computer. There was one that I actually turned around to watch rather than listen to. Perhaps anyone from the U.S. could find the location of the old prison? The actor...

    Currently reading 'In Search of the Unknown' by D. Scott Rogo. I was interested to read his experiments with Blue Harary in relation to OOBE's. He postulates that Harary may be utilizing ozone in order to project. Is this the basis of 'ghost hunters' using negative ion generators? Also...

    I recall hearing from some celebrity a couple of years ago that, having tried to conquer Europe twice through war, Germany are now trying to do it politically & economically. Yesterday I read of Patrick Moore basically saying the same thing. There was also an alleged quote from a German general...

    Re-Wiring Your Brain While Dreaming

    I seem to remember something similar in a previous topic (please move if necessary). I have a common theme with a lot of my dreams, which I'm pretty sure relates to a lifelong theme of getting near a goal, but not reaching it. Most of them involve me getting ready to do something that would be...

    A friend posted on Facebook that her daughter insisted that you cannot gag if you touch your elbow! She claims to have tried it and it works. I have no idea where this child got this from, or how she 'discovered' it!

    Ouija board polt activity.

    Someone at work has had a word with me today. He said his girlfriend messed about with a ouija board with a friend at their house last week. He tells me that they now have stuff happening. He has had knocks on his bedroom door, with no one there. He has also had cupboard doors open after he has...

    ...I've been reading around about the ouija board recently and during my Googling found out about a forthcoming film called "I Am Zozo". There are questions dating back a couple of years asking if this Zozo demon is real. I know that a previous film exists called Zozo. There is also a clip on...

    OK I'm quite a serious arachnophobe. I think I picked it up off my mum when I was a kid. I've been thinking about it again because I had a conversation with a bloke at work about the bird eating spider. He mentioned attempts to find the chicken eating spider. I'm not as bad as I used to be...

    Audience reactions on TV programmes.

    I wasn't sure where to put this, so please feel free to move it to an appropriate thread if needed. I came home from work tonight and put the TV on. For some reason I was reminded of watching (I'm ashamed actually) or rather seeing Blind Date with Cilla Black!!!! At the end of the programme...

    The Afterlife Experiments

    I have just finished reading about this, being from the U.K. I knew little about it beforehand. But having been featured on the HBO channel, those from the U.S. may be more aware of it. On balanceI can see that the intention of the experiment is honest enough, but that it did suffer from flaws...

    Debbie Harry & No Knickers!

    In 1977 a friend of mine (amongst others) went to see Blondie at Lancaster uni. I recall her saying "she was a dirty bitch, she wore a t-shirt and no knickers. I had forgotten about it until I recently saw a photo of Debbie Harry wearing a t shirt and thought "oh my god, she really isn't wearing...

    Killing Joke

    I'm a bit amazed that they have never featured in FT. They have a new album out called "Absolute Dissent", all their songs are about the coming armageddon, because the earth is messed up with our greed and stupidity. They have always had references to magic and the Book of Revelations in their...

    Holiday UL's.

    I was talking to someone at work a while ago and we were talking about holidays. He was telling me of things that he knows happens in some Spanish resorts. He says that gangs go around and will put a plastic fastener over your wrist and pull it tight. If you don't give them X amount of Euros...

    The Macho Being a Closet Gay UL?

    I was out drinking with quite a few friends a couple of years ago and I recall saying at one point that whileI have no issues with people who are homosexual (indeed, some of my best friends are!), the idea of kissing another man makes me el ill. My female friend then told me I was a liar. I...

    Potential investigation.

    Using the word forteana in a book title.

    I am currently writing e books on the paranormal and unexplained. I never mention anything about it on here because that is part of my business and this is my pleasure, and I never mix the two.

    PNE/Blackburn Rovers coffin

    It has a new series of people telling their ghost stories, so I thought i'd watch some rubbish TV.

    Predicted London Disasters That Didn't Happen

    Can I ask a question...

    I have heard from various sources that in medieval times forward people drank beer because water was not guaranteed to be safe and they would get nutrients from the beer. Maybe I am being simple here, but if beer us a diuretic, how did they get sufficient liquid into their system?

    Going to see Gordon Smith

    At Preston Guild Hall on March 10th. My wife bought me tickets to see both Derek Acorah and Sally Morgan. Although I greeted both with a 'thanks' and an internal sigh.

    UV & The Paranormal?

    I have been musing over what many 'psychics' say when they try to describe what they see/hear. They mostly state the the energy of these 'beings' vibrates too fast for us to witness. As far as I'm aware the lowest level of energy vibration comes from radio waves and the highest in the visible...

    Andrew Peake

    A couple of years ago I bought a book from a bargain book shop, 'What Happens When We Die' by Andrew Peake. Whilst highly impressed I was not in a position to make a critique of the evidence he cited, but I was impressed with it. I have just bought his second book 'The Dameon'. I just wondered...
