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.
