Several years ago, I was contacted by a woman who wanted to share her nocturnal ghostly sex encounters with me. First, we covered the usual questions about parasomnia, i.e. have you ever walked or talked in your sleep? Taking new meds? Living in a noisy place when it used to be quiet? Once we got those answers, we moved on to her encounters.
It began innocently with waking up to something touching her here and here, nowhere specific. Then, the touches got a bit closer to “home.” Eventually, she woke up to the feel of someone arousing her to climax. Sometimes, it felt like someone was atop of her. Sometimes, she thought she could feel someone inside of her.
Did you know that men and women both have arousal states in their sleep? You know that morning wood men can get? Women get arousal then too. When asking this woman for more information, it appeared that these encounters happened in the sunrise moments of the morning.
So, was she taking any medications or having any hormonal issues that might be creating a more than usual aroused state? She admitted to drinking ginger tea every night before bed. Ginger can be arousing, but not that long lasting! She was at her prime fertile time of life. These encounters seemed to occur once a month. When? When she was ovulating. Hmm…
Can we have sex with ghosts? Not likely. And, why would they? The drive for sex is purely hormonally driven. I don’t think there are ghosts running around with a sex drive. Can our minds be aroused in our sleep and we can incorporate it into our dream state? Yes. Have you ever had a headache in your sleep and dreamed someone was squeezing your head? Or had intestinal cramps and had a nightmare you were having a baby? We tend to incorporate physical conditions into the dream state.
You put someone between sleep stages who is vulnerable to parasomnia conditions in the past, i.e. walking/talking in her sleep, perhaps throw in some hormones and you have a really good “ghost sex” scenario.
I, however, am not giving up on the hope that there’s a lonely incubus out there looking for a brassy redhead to visit.

In Zimbabwe, mourners attending a funeral recently were stunned when the “dead” man came back to life. According to a story in the Daily Telegraph, “Family and friends were filing past a coffin with the remains of Brighton Dama Zanthe, 34, when one of them noticed the dead man’s legs twitching.
“I was the first to notice Zanthe’s moving legs as I was in the queue to view his body,” said one of the mourners, Lot Gaka, who employs the man at his transport company. “This shocked me. We called an ambulance immediately. It’s a miracle and people are still in disbelief.”
It’s fortunate that Zanthe recovered in time, though not quite a miracle. Stories of people assumed dead but waking up just before burial are weird, but are more common than most people think — especially in Third World countries where modern medical treatment is rare, and confirming death may sometimes be little more than guesswork.
Consciousness does not suddenly stop when the heart stops beating, and people who appear dead in some cases may not be. Cases of people who were presumed dead but woke up shortly before burial — or, in some horrific cases, shortly after burial — have been around for millennia, and may have contributed to belief in vampires and zombies.
Fears of premature burial obsessed many in the Victorian era and in fact some caskets were equipped with tubes and equipment leading to the surface so that bells and flags could be raised to alert groundskeepers in case the “dead” awoke.
Testing for Death
In centuries past, doctors used a variety of curious methods to determine death, ranging from holding a mirror under a person’s nose to detect moisture in their respiration to pricking the eyes with needles. Usually those sorts of crude measures are enough, but every now and then the vital signs will be too shallow to detect.
The same remains true today, and sometimes medical monitoring machines make errors. Doctors are only human and sometimes they make mistakes. Medical personnel typically don’t spend any more time than necessary with patients they believe to be dead. Instead they, quite reasonably, turn their attention and resources to the injured or diseased patients who they know are living. No one has the responsibility of staying with the dead for hours or days to make sure that they stay dead.
It wasn’t always the case. In his book “Buried Alive: The Terrifying History of Our Most Primal Fear,” researcher Jan Bondeson notes that in the late 1700s French doctors were so concerned about premature burial that they proposed that all major cities in France should have special “waiting mortuaries,” in which the recently deceased would be laid out in rows on floors or tables and carefully watched by monitors who would wander among the corpses looking for signs of anyone coming back to life. It was only at the point in which the bodies would begin bloating and putrefying that the corpse would finally be considered dead enough and sent for burial.
Sharon Hill, a blogger at Doubtful News.com, points out another reason why these cases are rarer in Western countries: “People are not embalmed as in other countries prior to burial.” Indeed, the same chemical process that preserves the dead and makes them suitable for public viewing also assures that the people really are dead.

Bloody Mary by Chris VaisvilasMore Bloody Mary InformationWho among us can forget the story of Bloody Mary. She is said to live in Mirrors and when someone especially a young girl goes into a dark room with a lighted candle in her hand and stands in front of the mirror looking into it and says Bloody Mary three times the ghost of the old woman will come out of the mirror and appear or at least appear in the mirror. It is said that a bathroom is where the ghost has appeared most often and some claim you have to say Bloody Mary thirteen times. Some people also say it must be a black candle and that it must be held in the left hand.
What Do You Know About The Bloody Mary Legend?What do you know about the Bloody Mary Legend. Have you ever tried it. Have you ever known anyone who tried it and saw something. If so let us all know about it in the comment section below.
Where Did Bloody Mary Come From?You'll hear many different stories and legends of where Bloody Mary came from and how she came to be.
Be careful what play with or you just might see Bloody Mary. Was There A Real Bloody MaryAt the old now closed down Tri Community Elementary School near Caroleen North Carolina people have always claimed that Bloody Mary can be seen in the bath room mirrors of the school. She was always described as standing looking out of the mirror with a bloody dress on and several rusty chains were draped around her neck and shoulders.
Women Were Hung In North Carolina For The Practice Of Witch CraftUp the hill behind the school is a very old grave yard with a lot of tombstones but most have been there so long you can't see the names on the stones any longer. It is said that here in this grave yard is where a witch was hung and buried in the 1780's. Yes its a historical fact that several women were hung in this area for practicing witch craft. At one of the trials the old transcripts said that a woman was hung for making her neighbors cows go dry and for running a 20 year old woman crazy and for causing her to throw herself into the near by river and drown. The witches name was Mary Holescloth and she was hung on Christmas Day 1781 near the present day Tri Community School by a rope around her neck until she was dead by the then high sheriff. She was tried three days before she was hung and eleven of her neighbors testified against the old woman. They told wild stories that the old woman had told of having relations with the devil himself. And she was said to have a large place on her right hip that looked like something with a large mouth of jagged teeth had bitten her.
Some people said that it was only a birth mark. But at the time of the trial and the hanging of the accused witch people in the area believed very much in witchcraft and they also believed that the devil was a very real being.
At the time that Mary Holescloth was buried it was believed that if you buried a witch wrapped in chains that the witches ghost could not come back and bother anyone. Its strange that down through the years that when the old woman's ghost was seen in the mirrors of the school that she was wrapped in chains. It was also said that witches were always wrapped in chains and buried facing down.
People Often Try To Practice Witchcraft At The Grave Of The Old WitchOver the years people have left offerings of candy, flowers, and dolls at the grave stone of the old witch. Her grave stone is a large red tombstone with no writing on it. People through out the years have drawn three crosses in a row on the tombstone for luck. There are also rumors that people often practice witch craft at the old witches tombstone. They light candles and leave offerings of dead chickens and you can often see where candles have been burned and melted down. Small mirrors are also often found leaning against the old red tombstone by people trying to summon the real Bloody Mary. Some have the belief that if they are able to summons the ghost of the old witch that she will be able to give them the desires of their heart.
Is Bloody Mary Real?Just because you go into the bathroom with a candle and chant Bloody Mary three times while standing in front of the mirror with a candle burning doesn't mean you will ever see her. You have to do it with the belief in your mind that you're going to see the old witch. If you believe you may have a chance to see her. But if not you may not see anything.
People who don't truly believe will often see nothing. But if the person who is trying to get the old witch to appear truly believes then the old witch may indeed appear.
Do You Know The Best Time To See Bloody Mary?The best times to see the old witch is on Fridays, any Friday the 13th, and on Halloween. It won't hardly ever happen unless it is dark outside. You have a better chance when there is a thunderstorm or at 3 A.M. which is the true witching hour not midnight as you may have been led to believe. So if you do try to see Bloody Mary why not try to see her at what is supposed to be the best time to see her. If I was trying to see her I would use a black candle in my left hand and I would try it at 3 A.M. on a Friday morning. If it's raining outside or a thunderstorm is going on outside you may have better luck.
A Circle Of SaltIt is best if you can to stand inside a circle of sea salt when you try to get Bloody Mary or any spirit to come to you. The sea salt will protect you as long as you stay inside the circle.
If you are successful at seeing Bloody Mary please let us all hear from you. Source: Are You Superstitious? There are 2 Friday the 13ths in 2013 , Friday, September 13, 2013, Friday, December 13, 2013. You Ever Seen Bloody Mary?

Ernest writes, "Ever since I have this clown doll, weird things started to happen. I started to hear small children whispering and giggling, and I also heard foot steps. I would leave it in one place and the next thing you know it is somewhere else. I thought it was my imagination. So I intentionally left it in the corner of my living room to monitor it and a few days later, it moved about 3 feet away from where I had left it."

A 46-year-old man who told doctors he was hearing voices reportedly ripped out his own eyeballs during a Sunday church service in northern Italy, The Sun reports.
According to The Daily Mail, Aldo Bianchini, who was born in the UK but spent most of his life in Italy, used his bare hands to tear out his eyeballs just as Rev. Lorenzo Tanganelli began conducting Mass. He then collapsed on the floor in a pool of his own blood.
"This man at the back of the nave started tearing at his face and I realized he was gouging out his eyes," Tanganelli told the paper. "I called for assistance and the paramedics were quickly at the scene, and he was taken away and then I carried on celebrating Mass, but a lot of people had left because they were so shocked by what they had seen."
Bianchini was taken to the hospital for treatment, but doctors say he will never be able to see again.
"In 26 years of practicing medicine, I have never seen anything like it," Dr. Gino Barbacci, the emergency physician who treated Bianchini, told the Italian-language news site Bresciaoggi.it, according to a HuffPost translation.
From The Daily Mail, quoting Dr. Barbacci:
"He was in a great deal of agony and he was covered in blood. He said that he had used his bare hands to gouge out his eyeballs after hearing voices telling him to do so -- to do something like that requires superhuman strength."
According to a HuffPost translation of Corriere Fiorentino, Bianchini studied chemistry and speaks five languages, but he had not found work. He has lived with his mother for about 20 years in Viareggio, a coastal city in northern Tuscany near Pisa.

There are tales of isolated patches of land, covered with unburied corpses. Some of them posed, or even stuffed in car trunks, all rotting in the midday sun. Is there a serial killer on the loose? Has the gravediggers' union gone on strike again?
It's real, and it's completely legal.
You won't see much mention of this on CSI since it would take away from the usual 30-minutes devoted to David Caruso putting on and/or removing his sunglasses, but body farms are becoming an increasingly important tool for forensic scientists. These patches of land have bodies scattered over them by scientists so they can study how bodies decay under a variety of conditions.
Think checking out the local body farm sounds like a fun weekend excursion? Well if you live around Knoxville, Tennessee; San Marcos, Texas; or Cullowhee, North Carolina, you're in luck, because that's where the country's three body farms are located.
The one found in Knoxville is the oldest and most elaborate, covering two and a half acres and containing 40 to 50 bodies at any one time. If there's not one near you yet, just wait, as scientists are looking to start new body farms faster than Wal-Mart opens new stores, with some hoping for a future with a body farm in every state.

Head shrinking has been the subject of legend, jokes and old Looney Tunes sight gags for ages, but the practice couldn't actually be real, could it? It's just one more bit of bullshit white people made up about folks a shade darker than them, right? Well...
Head shrinking was in fact a real thing, practiced mainly by tribes located around the Amazon River basin. For those looking to throw the perfect head shrinking party, here's the recipe:
Make a cut on the back of the head, then painstakingly peel all the skin and flesh from the skull. Sew the eyes and mouth shut, then boil the flesh up good, dry it with hot rocks, then mold it back into a head-like shape. Viola! A handy miniature version of the guy you nailed with that arrow last week! While head shrinking was real, it was quite rare even amongst the tribes that practiced it, that is until collecting shrunken heads became the Pogs of the late 19th century. The shrunken head trade actually became big business, with numerous South American and Polynesian tribes (most of whom never shrunk heads in the first place) going to war with one another just to collect heads.
In a tactic that was amazingly dickish even by white people's extraordinarily low standards when it came to dealing with natives, traders would give the tribes guns in exchange for the shrunken heads, ensuring a steady supply of new product.
Pictured: A large collection of shrunken heads and one horrible human being.
The sale of shrunken heads continued in the United States for years until it was finally officially outlawed sometime in the 1940s. Yes, as late of the 40s people still thought it was cool to trade human face jerky. By the way, wondering what price was put on a human life back then? How about 25 bucks a pop?

The ghost busters are urgently required at the Mauritius Revenue Authority ((MRA) Building at Port Louis. The place seems to be haunted by ghosts according to the security guards working there. While the guards claim to be happy with the work conditions, they are afraid of the ghosts. With this fear in their minds every night, they are being reluctant to do their duty and are likely going to the extreme option of leaving their job rather than work in the haunted place.
Fans of horror and movie script writers will highly appreciate the paranormal activities happening in the building. The lifts are operating by themselves; descending and opening, with no one inside except cries are heard.
At every floor, there are strange sounds, doors opening and closing by themselves, chairs moving by themselves, laughter and whistles. Every element seems to be present for a possible high revenue grossing ” The X –Files “ film: contact the Hollywood producers.
Moreover, employees doing overtime have also witnessed some abnormal happenings. While working after hours, they have heard sounds and whistles in the corridor. With the invisible man in the corridor, they were trembling from head to toe. They collected their belongings and ran home.
While some persons from the management have been informed of these supernatural phenomenons, like everyone this was taken as a joke by them. The security guards on their part, afraid of the happenings have decided to resign. Another official seemed amazed at these claims and considered them as baseless rumors.
With over 55 Billion rupees being collected by the MRA since 2012, has someone cast an evil eye on this parastatal body?
The MRA is responsible to collect revenue from taxes and customs and excise duties. In 2012, about Rs 58 billion rupees have been collected as revenue. Some months back there was a false bomb alert at the MRA and now the ghost/ invisible man stories cropping up; the MRA building seems to be targeted from various angles.
What is the inside story?
A new method to ask for a rise in pay or the abolition of overtime, every reason looks plausible to explain the situation. These paranormal phenomenons may have been woven in a mind persuading personal goals.
The fact is that until a proper investigation is not carried out the truth will never be known. What could possibly be the inside story? The mystery of “The haunted MRA building” has still to be resolved.

YOU HAVE HEARD of haunted houses and even possessed people, but can everyday, inanimate objects - furniture, stuffed animals, paintings, clocks, toys - also be haunted? If spirits can attach themselves to houses, hospitals and other institutions, and battlefields, we cannot rule out the idea that they can also attach themselves to objects.
A house or other buildings are thought to be haunted because the place was either important to the person in life, or they suffered some great loss or tragedy there and cannot let it go. So it may be for certain possessions to which a person was emotionally attached in life, continuing that attachment in death.
There have been many claims and cases in which people say that items they have either bought, inherited or found might be possessed or haunted. Paranormal researcher John Zaffis has a large collection of such items in his Museum of the Paranormal. (John also currently has a show on SyFy called The Haunted Collector.)
THE HAUNTED BED
When Styles was about 11 years old, he lived with his family in an adobe-style home that was built in the early 1900s. Styles had some older brothers, and when their dad bought some new bed mattresses for them, Styles, being the youngest, inherited one of the old mattresses.
Styles had never heard his brother make any complaints about the old mattress, and Styles found it comfortable and relaxing... yet he began to experience restless, sleepless nights. "It started off with this weird night I was in my bed trying to go to sleep," he says. "I had the blanket over my head when I felt something rubbing the cover with its hand. Because the cover was thin, I could make out what it looked like. It was a small man about two feet in height trying to get the cover off me!"
That was just the beginning. "It was then about 2 a.m. when I was awakened by what felt like a bunch of hands pushing upward from inside the mattress. I was scared out of my mind! I start praying. My brother, who I shared the room with, stated laughing in his sleep. But it wasn't his laugh."
Styles says he also felt a sharp poking in his ribs by unseen hands, the pain of which he still felt in the morning.
Why did Styles experience this haunted mattress when his brother did not? Was it something about Styles that awakened the ghost?
THE HAUNTED DOOR
Back in the early 1960s, Connie remembers, her father brought home an old door that he found in a pile of debris from a recently demolished house. The door was in good condition, so her father thought it would make a good addition to their house since he was in the midst of renovating the second floor. He used it to close of the parents' bedroom from the upstairs hallway.
Connie describes the upstairs as having a crawlspace that ran behind both her parents' room and the room that she shared with her sister. The night after her father hung that strange old door, weird things began to happen.
"Around 3:00 a.m.," Connie says, "we were all awakened by loud pounding coming from the crawlspace. Everyone jumped out of bed! My father ran into our room with a flashlight and removed the access panel. We were petrified, but when he shone the light inside the crawlspace, he saw nothing. He was even brave enough to enter the crawlspace, but didn't find anything out of place."
Reasoning that the noise might have been caused by an outside tree branch hitting the house, Connie's dad replaced the access panel and they all went back to bed.
A half hour later, the fierce pounding began again. This time Connie's dad even checked outside, but could find nothing that would cause the noise. "Now we were really scared," Connie admits. "And for the next week, every night the pounding happened. We were all exhausted."
Finally, Connie's mom insisted that the old door be removed. "She said she thought it was haunted! We all laughed, but she was serious." Connie's dad reluctantly took the old door out, chopped it into splinters and burned it. Sure enough, the pounding stopped and never returned.
THE HAUNTED PIANO
Vicki had always wanted a piano. Her wish came true one day when her son brought her an old upright piano that he had discovered working his salvage and hauling service. It seemed to be in good working order, so Vicki cleaned it up, polished it and set it in the enclosed front porch of her old farm house, where it quickly became one of her prized possessions.
Several years passed without incident. Then one October night Vicki was babysitting her granddaughter when she began to hear the sound of the piano from the porch. "It was random notes with no particular tune," she says. "Groggy, I listened to the piano for at least fifteen minutes. Deciding that it must be mice, I got up and opened the door. The piano was silent."
Weeks went by until one night at about 2 a.m., Vicki was awakened by the haunting notes on the piano. She again suspected mice, but then... "Suddenly, a tune floated through the house," she remembers. "It stopped and started several times, but it was definitely a tune - like someone practicing a song."
This phenomenon happened on a regular basis. Vicki's daughter even heard it. "I almost cried from relief and told her that I had been hearing the same thing for months," Vicki says. Her daughter-in-law also came to Vicki in tears, saying that she, too, heard the ghost at the piano.
Eventually, Vicki put the piano outside with a "FREE" sign on it - not because of the ghost, but because the weight of it was beginning to make the porch sag. An old couple came along and adopted the instrument. "I often wonder," Vicki says, "if they have experienced any late night concerts courtesy of the old piano."
