Is a Oregon City marijuana shop is haunted, or are they just high. (video)

OREGON CITY, Ore. — It's almost Halloween, but things are already pretty spooky at an Oregon City marijuana shop.

Employees at Five Zero Trees have been seeing some strange things, and some think it might be haunted.

“It’s like, what's going to happen next?” budtender, Andy Gomez said.

In August, Gomez was working at the counter by himself, when surveillance video shows a glass tip jar slowly begin to slide off the edge of a level counter, then fall off.

“As it happened, I kind of felt like someone was standing next to me like somebody was right here,” Gomez said.

Not long after that, surveillance cameras captured another strange happening.

The video shows a pen cup on a different counter with no one around when suddenly, the pens begin to move. To skeptics who think the video was doctored, the store’s general manager said as a cannabis shop, that would be against the law.

The History of Spirit Photography

What happens after we die? It’s a question that seems to have a million answers, and one that has perplexed humans for thousands of years. In the early days of photography some believed that the camera could be used as a tool to connect with the spirit world.

Spirit photography began in the late 19th century, around the time that the the spiritualism movement was gaining traction across Europe and the United States. The photographers who practiced it claimed that they could capture images of a portrait subjects and their deceased loved ones in a single frame. The haunted images were a big hit and spirit photographers like William H. Mummler, who charged ten dollars for a photo—which was considered a huge amount of money at the time, thrived.

“Photography was very new at the time and people didn’t really understand how it worked,” says Jolene Lupo, Manager of Manhattan’s Penumbra Tintype Studio, a nonprofit dedicated to historical forms of photography. “They knew that it could see more than the human eye could, but they didn’t understand the boundaries of the medium.”

Sometimes ghosts would appear very realistic, with their arms draped around the living portrait sitter. In other images the spirits would appear as no more than cotton-like whisps. One of Mummler’s most well known images featured first lady Mary Todd Lincoln sitting with a translucent image of her husband Abraham Lincoln—five years after he was assassinated.

“Each photographer had their own trademark,” says Lupo. The haunted frames were obviously—at least to our modern minds—a result of some kind of manipulation: chemical, in-camera or something done in the darkroom. Every photographer seemed to have a few tricks for making the ghosts appear.

South Carolina is prime real estate for Bigfoot

Bigfoot. Sasquatch. Yeti. The Abominable Snowman. Stories of large, hairy creatures appearing to be half man and half ape have been told around campfires for hundreds of years.

In the folklore of some Native American tribes, the beasts are said to be peaceful, supernatural beings with intelligence and spiritual powers. Other tribes, however, describe them as malevolent creatures who attack humans, play dangerous tricks, or steal children.

For obvious reasons, the vast majority of mainstream scientists maintain that the existence of such creatures is impossible. Yet thousands of people have claimed to spot the mysterious hominids roaming the woods of North America since the 1800s.

Eyewitness reports describe the creatures as bipedal primates that are 6 to 10 feet tall and weigh at least 500 pounds. The footprints left behind by Bigfoot (a singular and plural term) range in size from about 12 to 22 inches long. They are also thought to be non-aggressive creatures, whose human-like intelligence and shyness make them elusive and thus rarely seen.

Freaky video claims to capture the infamous "Gong Goi" ghost (video)

SPOOKY footage has emerged of what some believe is a one-legged 'child-like ghost' hopping and screaming by the side of the road.

The eerie clip - which has gone viral in Thailand after being posted on Facebook-  was filmed just over the border in neighbouring Laos.

The Gong Goi is said to have been cursed to spend the after life hopping around on a contorted human leg.

And some of the four million people to have seen the bizarre video are convinced it is a mythical blood-sucking ghoul called the Gong Goi.

According to local folklore, the child-sized monster sucks the blood from the toes of sleeping people camping in the wild.

It is said to have been cursed to spend the after life hopping around on a contorted human leg screaming “Gong Goi, Gong Goi!” over and over again.

Ghost Hunters busted in Hackensack NJ

A woman charged in the bizarre water-borne burglary of a World War II-era submarine stuck in a murky Bergen County river is a psychologist and ghost hunter with an apparent hobby of exploring abandoned buildings.

Laura B. Palmese, 38, and Jon P. Stevens, 48, both of Connecticut, swam to the USS Ling, which is moored in the Hackensack River, after leaving their car at a nearby diner, city police said in a statement Thursday.

The duo allegedly stole a lantern and a medical corps lieutenant's shoulder lapel from the historic former Navy vessel on Aug. 11.

Palmese has worked as a member of Thames Society of Paranormal Investigations, a Connecticut-based team of ghost hunters who seek out the supernatural around the region.

"Our mission is to research, investigate, educate and provide assistance to those who are experiencing the paranormal phenomenon," the group website says.

The group's director, Shamus Denniston, insisted Palmese was not tracking down a spirit on the Ling for his team during the alleged burglary.

Chicago Security Guard sees a ghost and has the proof (video)

A worker at a nursing home in Chicago got the last laugh on his friends and family who disbelieved his claims of seeing a ghost after he produced security footage which seems to show the spirit in question.
Jay Brown was working the overnight shift at a school last weekend when the bizarre event occurred.

He told friends and family how he saw a ghost walking through the halls of the deserted building.  

But no one believed him.

So Jay, from Chicago, US, went back to work the next day to watch the CCTV footage in the hope it would help prove his claims. 

And he was left shocked by what he found.

Personal trainer claims to have filmed ghost at a haunted castle (video)

A personal trainer got quite the fright when he filmed what he says was a ghost, lurking in the window of a castle in England. "I didn't see the figure until I watched the footage back, but the whole time I was in the castle I felt something watching me."

In the eerie footage from September 8, there seems to be something moving in the window before suddenly a figure appears – complete with what look like glowing eyes. Tony Ferguson tried to debunk his ‘scary’ encounter as another visitor to Hurst Castle, Hampshire, playing a prank but discovered that the window is only accessible through a tunnel ‘as narrow as a snooker cue’.

The 33 year old now believes the apparition to be the spirit of a former castle caretaker that he also encountered on a previous visit to the 16th century artillery fort in 2017.

“Last time I visited, it appeared like a white mist but this time it obviously had the energy to actually take form,” Ferguson said. “I was asking it to show itself and this white mist flew straight at my camera. You can see it almost reaching out like a hand.”

Historic Pennsylvania jail is for sale, ghosts included (video)

JIM THORPE, Pa. — The asking price — $749,000 — includes gallows, nooses, handcuffs, the everlasting handprint of a hanged coal miner, and possibly some ghosts who have good reason to be ticked off.

“Oh, we have ghosts here,” Betty Lou McBride said last week. “Tons of ghosts.”

McBride, 84, and husband Tom, 87, purchased the former Carbon County Jail in Jim Thorpe in 1995 when it still housed prisoners, and took over once the county moved the last of them to a new facility in Nesquehoning. The McBrides have spent the last two decades running the imposing, 147-year-old stone building as The Old Museum Jail.

“We’ve been saying we were going to sell it for a long time, but it’s hard to let go,” she said.
The two-story, 27-cell jail is tucked into a rocky hill atop Broadway in the quaint mining town formerly known as Mauch Chunk on the Lehigh River. Pennsylvania has plenty of old stone buildings where nothing much happened, but the jail is on the National Register of Historic Places because of its unique and ominous place in the history of labor unions in America.

In the late 1800s, immigrants were pouring into Northeastern Pennsylvania and heading down into the mines to extract anthracite coal. Faced with low pay, meager living conditions and discrimination, Irish miners turned to fraternal organizations such as the Ancient Order of Hibernians for solidarity and, eventually, to fledgling trade unions to organize.

“What they were, basically, were miners who were just trying to get the mine owners to treat them fairly,” said Karliene Zack, of the Mauch Chunk Museum down the street.

Will Smith swears he photographed a ghost on the USS Lexington (video)

Visitors flock to the USS Lexington to get a look at the vintage WW2 ship and if you are lucky, you just may see more than you bargained for.
“There a bunch of stories that we just can’t discredit,” said Paranormal Tour Guide, Bill Miller.

The latest was a photo taken by a man visiting from Louisiana.

In the photo you can clearly see a shadow of a man, but is it a real ghost?

We contacted the man who took the photo, who swears it’s real, and that reflection or shadow is not of a man standing by the display. There was no one else around.

“Nothing in the room! There is nothing that can make that reflection. I’m 5′ 3′ and 280 pounds. That’s defiantly not me in that reflection,” said Will Smith.

One that the USS Lexington does not dispute and it is the most common and consistent sighting.
It takes place in the ship’s galley.

The Scottish government has a plan in place if the Loch Ness Monster is captured.

Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) prepared the "partly serious, partly fun" code of practice in 2001 amid a period of intense interest in Nessie.

This year's interest has been piqued by scientists gathering DNA from the loch, and Scotland's first minister saying she believes there is a monster.

SNH said it would "dust off" the plan if Nessie was discovered.

The code of practice was drawn up to offer protection to new species found in the loch, including a monster.

It stipulates that a DNA sample should be taken from any new creature, and then it should be released back into the loch.

The story of the monster can be traced back 1,500 years when Irish missionary St Columba is said to have encountered a beast in the River Ness in 565AD.

Later, in the 1930s, The Inverness Courier reported the first modern sighting of Nessie.
The creature's appearance has been described as resembling a plesiosaur, a creature that died out with the dinosaurs.

Nick Halfhide, of SNH, an organisation that promotes Scottish wildlife and natural habitats, said the 17-year-old code of practice remained relevant today.

San Antonio cafe owners are convinced their business is haunted (video)

SAN ANTONIO - When Joe and April Ward opened their OnLive Hall of Fame Café on the city’s East Side late last year, they chose a theme that salutes music from the past.

Little did they know, a piece of the past would come to haunt them.
The couple is convinced that their business, located in the 2400 block of East Houston Street, is home to about a half dozen ghosts, and they say they have the video to prove it.

Before seeing the eerie images captured by their surveillance cameras, Joe Ward said he had the feeling that something was going on. He said back when he was renovating the space, he often got the feeling he wasn’t alone.

“I didn't tell (April) about it because I thought I was losing my mind,” he said. “A tape measure came up missing, a saw blade and my keys.”

He said he also began to feel something or someone tugging at his glasses on his shirt collar at times when no one else was around.

Ward said he tried to brush it all off, but when decorations began to move around on their own after closing, the couple decided to turn to their surveillance video.

Confidential report analyzes Tic Tac UFO incidents (video)

LAS VEGAS - Fuzzy videos captured by military pilots caused a media splash over the last six months, but what were those objects in the sky?

Since the Pentagon's release of three UFO videos, armchair experts have speculated that maybe the objects are birds or balloons or something mundane.

But now, the I-Team has obtained an in-depth report prepared by and for the military, and it analyzes the so-called Tic Tac UFO using the most sophisticated sensor systems in the world.

On Nov.14, F-18s were ordered into the area and saw it up close. Veteran pilot Dave Fravor, commander of the elite Black Aces unit, says the Tic Tac reacted to the presence of the F-18s then took off like a bullet fired from a gun.

"It takes off like nothing I've ever seen. One minute it's here, and off, it's gone," said retired Navy pilot David Fravor.

Testing of DNA samples may provide the truth about the Loch Ness Monster

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The stories seem as tall as the lake is deep. For hundreds of years, visitors to Scotland's Loch Ness have described seeing a monster that some believe lurks in the depths.

But now the legend of "Nessie" may have no place left to hide. A New Zealand scientist is leading an international team to the lake next month, where they will take samples of the murky waters and conduct DNA tests to determine what species live there.

University of Otago professor Neil Gemmell says he's no believer in Nessie, but he wants to take people on an adventure and communicate some science along the way. Besides, he says, his kids think it's one of the coolest things he's ever done.

One of the more far-fetched theories is that Nessie is a long-necked plesiosaur that somehow survived the period when dinosaurs became extinct. Another theory is that the monster is actually a sturgeon or giant catfish. Many believe the sightings are hoaxes or can be explained by floating logs or strong winds.

Man claims to have captured an Angel on Motion Sensor camera (video)

EAST JORDAN, Mich. (WPBN/WGTU) - Do you believe in miracles?

A group of people in East Jordan believe they have come across one.

“I said ‘That’s an angel!’ And I was just blown away," said Glen Thorman, whose security camera captured the image. "I couldn’t wait to send it to my wife and send it to Deneille. And I said ‘I got an angel, and my camera took a picture of an angel.'"

The camera is only activated by a motion sensor.

On Wednesday, it emailed him a picture that shows what he says looks like an angel hovering over his truck, then moving out of the frame.

One of the first things he did was send the picture to the pastor of his church, Deneille Moes.

“It was really clear to me the minute I looked at the photo, I just kind of freaked out a bit," Moes said.

"I went like ‘Whoa! That’s an angel!' And I texted him back, ‘That’s an angel.’ There wasn’t any doubt in my mind that we were looking at something supernatural.”

Security Guard films creepy experience at a Buenos Aires Stadium (video)

The eerie clip, shot by Raul Arguello, 32, captures the moment he opens a "banging door" at the Tomás Adolfo Ducó Stadium in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

As he pans his camera around, he unknowingly captures the instant a "spectre" quickly passes along some benches before disappearing THROUGH a wall.

At the time, the apparition appears to be invisible to the naked eye as Arguello doesn’t react to the movement.

He only discovered the unnerving phenomenon later when he viewed the footage and found he had apparently caught the spooky presence in the arena.

At the beginning of the haunting encounter the guard explains to prove he is "telling the truth"  about the baffling banging door he is going to film it.

“It’s eleven o’clock at night and it’s the third time I’ve heard this banging noise,” the frightened man says looking down into the camera.

“I’m going to film it to show people later on, so they believe it when I tell them because this has never happened to me before. It’s terrifying.”

Ghost flies straight at a camera in a graveyard (video)

This is the spooky moment a fitness coach claimed he saw a ghost fly straight at his camera as he explored an 800-year-old graveyard. 

A smokey white figure appears to launch itself directly at Tony Ferguson's camera as he investigated the cemetery at St Mary's Church in Eling, Hampshire.  

Personal trainer and paranormal investigator Tony claims he decided to scout out the cemetery after reports of a 'negative presence' from people visiting their loved ones' graves.

The 33-year-old claims the moment he stepped foot in the graveyard he felt 'unwanted' and then suddenly heard a 'whooshing' sound which he now believes must have been the ghost whizzing past him.

While seeing visual evidence of what he felt and heard was 'really weird' for Tony at first, he says it is reassuring to know his mind was not just playing tricks on him.

After watching the footage in slow-motion, Tony believes the spirit to be a 'controlling' gentleman trying to discourage people from visiting the cemetery.

Fitness Coach claims a ghosts threw his camera and then made it's presence known (video)

A fitness coach was left 'freaked out' after he claimed a poltergeist threw his camera across the cabin of a WWII plane before the spirit of the female co-pilot appeared as a white 'angel's feather'.

In the first of two spine-tingling videos, Tony Ferguson asks whatever is haunting the former military seaplane to make itself known before a series of loud bangs echo through the empty cabin. 

When the 33-year-old asked again for the entity to show itself, Mr Ferguson's camera – which had also been experiencing interference often associated with paranormal activity – was hurled to the ground.

Tony Ferguson first experienced paranormal activity on the plane in October 2017. He asks whatever is haunting the seaplane to make itself known before a series of loud bangs echo through the empty cabin

Mr Ferguson, speaking to a seemingly empty cabin, asks the entity to show itself. As he does so, his camera experiences interference, which experts say is associated with paranormal activity

Man films ghost disappearing into a wall (video)

Eerie footage has emerged showing a ghostly figure of a woman wearing what looks like a dress and heels before she disappears through a wall.

A personal trainer has captured spine-tingling footage of what he believes to be the ghost of Admiral Nelson’s wife aboard the HMS Victory.

Tony Ferguson captured the spine-tingling footage of what he believes to be the ghost of Admiral Nelson’s wife aboard the HMS Victory.

The 33-year-old was enjoying a day out last week exploring the vessel, which was Lord Nelson’s flagship in the Battle of Trafalgar, when he started to feel like someone – or something – was following him.

“I arrived at the HMS Victory first thing in the morning and I knew I had the whole upper chamber to myself but I kept feeling like someone was following me,” he said.

“I got out my camera and as I panned around the camera picked up this woman in a dress.”

Mysterious Creature washed ashore in Georgia

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. - A mysterious sea creature washed ashore in St. Simons Island and it has beachgoers scratching their heads.

Jeff Warren and his son were at Wolf Island National Wildlife Refuge just north of St. Simons Island in Georgia Friday when they came upon the creature on a barrier island.

Warren thought it was a dead seal, but said when he got a closer look it resembled more of the Loch Ness monster.

Warren sent the photo to News4Jax and said the creature was about 4 to 5 feet long with two fins, though only one can be seen in the picture. 

The creature has little teeth about one-eighth of an inch long.

The Municipal Building in Gettysburg has some spooky things going on at night (video)

GETTYSBURG, Pa. -- "It almost sounds like somebody's walking upstairs, and I'm not the only one whose experienced that," said Gettysburg Police Chief Joe Doughtery.

The Gettysburg Municipal Building was initially constructed in the 1800’s as the Adam’s County Prison. Criminals died within its walls and Civil War soldiers just outside.

Inside the Gettysburg Municipal Building, curious happenings late at night.

Phantom footsteps, doors mysteriously closing, and an aroma without a source.

"It smells like just a faint whiff, as if someone had been cooking chili, and I’m usually one of the first ones in in the morning like 530,6 o’clock, and I know that there was nobody there doing it," explained Chief Doughtery.

Those strange experiences have been shared by a number of Gettysburg police officers over the years.

“It happens so often I don’t even think about it anymore. We don’t even think about it anymore," said Doughtery.

Chief Dougherty’s been with the force for more than a decade.

One night sits clear as day in his mind.

10 ways to summon a spirit, but personally "Hell no,I'm not gonna do it"

So I grew up watching horror shows like Ssshhhh...someone's there etc. These shows used to scare the hell out of me, so much so that I feared to go inside loo at midnight. But at the same time, there was something inside me that used to get entertained by that fear. I used to wonder about the moment if some night even I have a faceoff with a Ghost.

A childhood friend of mine also used to have the same feeling. One day me, her and all the mates while having our tuition classes took the Maths book out of our bag, placed our finger on it jointly and starting speaking the chant (we seriously believed that in this way we’ll be able to attract the spirits but because we are so innocent children they won’t harm us). What happened next? The God was in the mood of having fun with us. LOL.
