I got the following report in a couple days ago. It is an interesting report and is something many people have reported seeing.

Here is the report.

- Start Report -

Name: Debbie ****

Email Address: on file

State: ky

County: bell

Date of Sighting: 1987-88

Time of Day: night

Nearest Town: pineville

Length of Sighting: overtime

How many Witnesses: 2

Any Photos/Videos: yes but i don't have them with me.

Describe sighting in detail:
In the 1980s I had move into my grandmothers house. I lived there when I was a young girl before my grandparents lived there and loved it but the people who lived in the house last did not take care of it and keep it up. The roof leaked and the paint was gone off the outside,and windows were busted. The two back doors didn't have any locks, so I had to make my own locks with two boards and nails.

My cousin kept saying he thought he would see shadows go back in forth through the living room and kitchen part when he was brushing his hair. My husband said he thought he saw things in the corner of his eye at that time. I did not have cable and the TV signed off at 11:30. When I had a fire built in the fire place, my husband hadn't got home yet, the kids were in bed. At that time I smoked cigarettes, I always blew the smoke at the fire place but I noticed that night the smoke wasn't going into the fireplace and keep going in a circle and into the next room. I kept feeling like someone was starring at me. So the TV signed off and I got up to turn it off. The smoke had surrounded the shape of something through the door way starring at ME through the mirror, which was by the doorway. It looked like it had long stringy hair, hollow black eyes, big long teeth and claws. I screamed god help me Jesus and turned the light back on, and kept it on till my husband got there. We didn't see anything else that night but whole time I lived in that house I became very sick and lost a lot of weight, I weighed about 75 pounds. I couldn't eat or sleep, always got very nervous, felt like I was losing my mind.

I begin to hear something make a tapping noise across the kitchen floor. I thought it may be a big rat and I sat out all kinds of poison but nothing stopped it. So, I thought what if its a snake. I took a flashlight to bed with me so I could turn it on when I heard the noise to see if I could find out what it was. There was a street light that shined through the window a few houses away so when I turned around to turn the flash light on I saw a shadow about four foot tall coming across the floor making the tapping noise. It was a shape of my grandmother with a headscarf and carrying two plates coming in my direction. I screamed no I don't want anything keep it and threw the cover over my head for a few minutes and then looked again nothing was there. Then I heard a very scary voice say why don't you just put the pillow over your head and suffocate yourself to death because no one loves you or cares about you anyway, so you might as well kill yourself and get it over with. Then I heard another calm voice saying your children love you, your dad and aunt, husband loves you and I love you. Who will raise your children right. I told the voice that spoke to me, no I will not do it (kill myself) to get away from me and leave me along. And it was like a bee hive going off in my head.
I saw all kinds of lights flashing going off like an explosion.

The next day I was standing on my porch and some people drove by in a truck and came back and talk to me and said that the lord had told them to come and pick me up that there was a revival at church and said I could come if I wanted to. I told them I would go and at the church service that night when they made the altar call there was so many people there that I could not get out of the aisle. So I lifted my hands and said God, if you don't help me I'm going to die and there will be no one to raise my children right. I felt like a warm fire came over me and I did not know what it was, it scared me and I started to ask someone what it was. I just lifted my hands and continued to thank the lord. Very shortly after that I moved out of the house and began to feel so much better right away. I have pictures of that house that was talking at night and there was like light coming out of the windows that looked like hands. There were three of them that came all over the house. There is a lot more to the house but if you want to hear more I can tell you later.
Thank you for your time

- End Report -

It sure sounds like there was something going on in that old house. I'm sure I have read about other cases where the person experienced weigh loss due to paranormal activity.

I can understand where Debbie is coming from, I lived in a house that had activity in it. That activity is still happening today. I hope to tell all about that at some point.

Also, I have ask Debbie for the photos she talked about in her report. If she is able to get them to me, I will update the post to include them.

Thanks goes to Debbie for telling us about some of her experiences with the spirit world. 


Thanks

While my internet was out I made a colorized version of the original picture.

Bunyip - The bunyip, or kianpraty, is a large mythical creature from Aboriginal mythology, said to lurk in swamps, billabongs, creeks, riverbeds, and waterholes. The origin of the word bunyip has been traced to the Wemba-Wemba or Wergaia language of Aboriginal people of South-Eastern Australia. However, the bunyip appears to have formed part of traditional Aboriginal beliefs and stories throughout Australia, although its name varied according to tribal nomenclature. In his 2001 book, writer Robert Holden identified at least nine regional variations for the creature known as the bunyip across Aboriginal Australia. Various written accounts of bunyips were made by Europeans in the early and mid-19th century, as settlement spread across the country.

The word bunyip is usually translated by Aboriginal Australians today as "devil" or "evil spirit". However, this translation may not accurately represent the role of the bunyip in Aboriginal mythology or its possible origins before written accounts were made. Some modern sources allude to a linguistic connection between the bunyip and Bunjil, "a mythic 'Great Man' who made the mountains and rivers and man and all the animals." The word bunyip may not have appeared in print in English until the mid-1840s.

By the 1850s, bunyip had also become a "synonym for impostor, pretender, humbug and the like" in the broader Australian community. The term bunyip aristocracy was first coined in 1853 to describe Australians aspiring to be aristocrats. In the early 1990s, it was famously used by Prime Minister Paul Keating to describe members of the conservative Liberal Party of Australia opposition.

The word bunyip can still be found in a number of Australian contexts, including place names such as the Bunyip River (which flows into Westernport Bay in southern Victoria) and the town of Bunyip, Victoria.


Descriptions of bunyips vary widely. George French Angus may have collected a description of a bunyip in his account of a "water spirit" from the Moorundi people of the Murray River before 1847, stating it is "much dreaded by them… It inhabits the Murray; but…they have some difficulty describing it. Its most usual form…is said to be that of an enormous starfish." Robert Brough Smyth's Aborigines of Victoria of 1878 devoted ten pages to the bunyip, but concluded "in truth little is known among the blacks respecting its form, covering or habits; they appear to have been in such dread of it as to have been unable to take note of its characteristics." However, common features in many 19th-century newspaper accounts include a dog-like face, dark fur, a horse-like tail, flippers, and walrus-like tusks or horns or a duck-like bill.

The Challicum bunyip, an outline image of a bunyip carved by Aborigines into the bank of Fiery Creek, near Ararat, Victoria, was first recorded by The Australasian newspaper in 1851. According to the report, the bunyip had been speared after killing an Aboriginal man. Antiquarian Reynell Johns claimed that until the mid-1850s, Aboriginal people made a "habit of visiting the place annually and retracing the outlines of the figure [of the bunyip] which is about 11 paces long and 4 paces in extreme breadth." The outline image no longer exists.

Non-Aboriginal Australians have made various attempts to understand and explain the origins of the bunyip as a physical entity over the past 150 years.

Writing in 1933, Charles Fenner suggested that it was likely that the "actual origin of the bunyip myth lies in the fact that from time to time seals have made their way up the ... Murray and Darling (Rivers)". He provided examples of seals found as far inland as Overland Corner, Loxton, and Conargo and reminded readers that "the smooth fur, prominent 'apricot' eyes and the bellowing cry are characteristic of the seal."

Another suggestion is that the bunyip may be a cultural memory of extinct Australian marsupials such as the Diprotodon, Zygomaturus, Nototherium or Palorchestes. This connection was first formally made by Dr George Bennett of the Australian Museum in 1871, but in the early 1990s, palaeontologist Pat Vickers-Rich and geologist Neil Archbold also cautiously suggested that Aboriginal legends "perhaps had stemmed from an acquaintance with prehistoric bones or even living prehistoric animals themselves ... When confronted with the remains of some of the now extinct Australian marsupials, Aborigines would often identify them as the bunyip." They also note that "legends about the mihirung paringmal of western Victorian Aborigines …may allude to the …extinct giant birds the Dromornithidae."

Another connection to the bunyip is the shy Australasian bittern (Botaurus poiciloptilus). During the breeding season, the male call of this marsh-dwelling bird is a "low pitched boom"; hence, it is occasionally called the "bunyip bird".
 

During the early settlement of Australia by Europeans, the notion that the bunyip was an actual unknown animal that awaited discovery became common. Early European settlers, unfamiliar with the sights and sounds of the island continent's peculiar fauna, regarded the bunyip as one more strange Australian animal and sometimes attributed unfamiliar animal calls or cries to it. It has also been suggested that 19th-century bunyip lore was reinforced by imported European memories, such as that of the Irish PĂșca.(Puca - spirit/ghost)
 
A large number of bunyip sightings occurred during the 1840s and 1850s, particularly in the southeastern colonies of Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia, as European settlers extended their reach. The following is not an exhaustive list of accounts:
 

Hume find of 1818

One of the earliest accounts relating to a large unknown freshwater animal was in 1818, when Hamilton Hume and James Meehan found some large bones at Lake Bathurst in New South Wales. They did not call the animal a bunyip, but described the remains indicating the creature as very much like a hippopotamus or manatee. The Philosophical Society of Australasia later offered to reimburse Hume for any costs incurred in recovering a specimen of the unknown animal, but for various reasons, Hume did not return to the lake.
 

Wellington Caves fossils, 1830

More significant was the discovery of fossilised bones of "some quadruped much larger than the ox or buffalo in the Wellington Caves in mid-1830 by bushman George Rankin and later by Thomas Mitchell. Sydney's Reverend John Dunmore Lang announced the find as "convincing proof of the deluge". However, it was British anatomist Sir Richard Owen who identified the fossils as the gigantic marsupials Nototherium and Diprotodon. At the same time, some settlers observed "all natives throughout these... districts have a tradition (of) a very large animal having at one time existed in the large creeks and rivers and by many it is said that such animals now exist."
 

First written use of the word bunyip, 1845

In July 1845, The Geelong Advertiser announced the discovery of fossils found near Geelong, under the headline "Wonderful Discovery of a new Animal". This was a continuation of a story on 'fossil remains' from the previous issue. The newspaper continued, "On the bone being shown to an intelligent black (sic), he at once recognised it as belonging to the bunyip, which he declared he had seen. On being requested to make a drawing of it, he did so without hesitation." The account noted a story of an Aboriginal woman being killed by a bunyip and the "most direct evidence of all" – that of a man named Mumbowran "who showed several deep wounds on his breast made by the claws of the animal". The account provided this description of the creature:

"The Bunyip, then, is represented as uniting the characteristics of a bird and of an alligator. It has a head resembling an emu, with a long bill, at the extremity of which is a transverse projection on each side, with serrated edges like the bone of the stingray. Its body and legs partake of the nature of the alligator. The hind legs are remarkably thick and strong, and the fore legs are much longer, but still of great strength. The extremities are furnished with long claws, but the blacks say its usual method of killing its prey is by hugging it to death. When in the water it swims like a frog, and when on shore it walks on its hind legs with its head erect, in which position it measures twelve or thirteen feet in height."

Shortly after this account appeared, it was repeated in other Australian newspapers. However, it appears to be the first use of the word bunyip in a written publication.
 

The Australian Museum's bunyip of 1847

In January 1846, a peculiar skull was taken from the banks of Murrumbidgee River near Balranald, New South Wales. Initial reports suggested that it was the skull of something unknown to science. The squatter who found it remarked, "all the natives to whom it was shown called [it] a bunyip". By July 1847, several experts, including W.S. Macleay and Professor Owen, had identified the skull as the deformed foetal skull of a foal or calf. At the same time, however, the so-called bunyip skull was put on display in the Australian Museum (Sydney) for two days. Visitors flocked to see it, and The Sydney Morning Herald said that it prompted many people to speak out about their "bunyip sightings". Reports of this discovery used the phrase 'Kine Pratie' as well as Bunyip and explorer William Hovell, who examined the skull, also called it a 'katen-pai'.

In March of that year 'a bunyip or an immense Platibus' (Platypus) was sighted 'sunning himself on the placid bosom of the Yarra, just opposite the Custom House' in Melbourne. 'Immediately a crowd gathered' and three men set off by boat 'to secure the stranger' who 'disappeared' when they were 'about a yard from him'.
 

William Buckley's account of bunyips, 1852

Another early written account is attributed to escaped convict William Buckley in his 1852 biography of thirty years living with the Wathaurong people. His 1852 account records "in... Lake Moodewarri [now Lake Modewarre] as well as in most of the others inland...is a...very extraordinary amphibious animal, which the natives call Bunyip." Buckley's account suggests he saw such a creature on several occasions. He adds, "I could never see any part, except the back, which appeared to be covered with feathers of a dusky grey colour. It seemed to be about the size of a full grown calf... I could never learn from any of the natives that they had seen either the head or tail." Buckley also claimed the creature was common in the Barwon River and cites an example he heard of an Aboriginal woman being killed by one. He emphasized the bunyip was believed to have supernatural powers.

While there appears to be a pretty good historical record of sightings. I would assume this was either a now known animal that was not know to the people seeing it at the time or it was something that is now extinct.

I was able to find possible reports of a possible bunyip sighting in 1978 or 79. It stated that a plesiosaurus type creature was seen swimming in the river near Sydney. It appears the idea of the bunyip is embraced very well in Eastern Australia. The bunyip has appeared on stamps and various other artwork pieces. It is also an attraction at a place called Murray Bridge.

The Murray Bridge Bunyip 
The Murray Bridge Bunyip was built by Dennis Newell and launched in 1972. For 20 cents the bunyip emerged from below the water a gave a very loud roar. The Bunyip was given a baby about 10 years after the launch. The sound box has had many problems during its time... at one stage vandals somehow worked out how to jam it so it would continue to roar - often through all hours of the night.
Then the Bunyip and baby were also vandalized and part was broken off. A quieter, more friendly looking bunyip was built and his cave was revamped in 2000. The price rose to $1 for three appearances. The bunyip receives in excess of 20,000 visitors per year.
The Murray Bridge Bunyip can be found lurking in his cave today on the banks of the Murray River at Sturt Reserve Murray Bridge.

Scary Ouija Board Moment!!!
By Dorraine Fisher

There a lot of people that believe in the evil of Ouija boards and swear never to touch them, especially after a scary experience.  This video was featured on Rather Freaky website this week. The woman believed her house to be haunted and summoned the help of a Ouija board to find out who or what it might be.   After receiving some scary answers from the board, watch what happens. 

What do you think? Real or fake?

TCC - Hell, it is a belief in almost all parts of the planet. A fiery place or torment for bad/sinful people after death. Did you know that people who have a strong belief in Hell are less likely to commit serious crimes?
 
Here is a brief overview of the main story,there will be some commentary after the back story.

- Start
[The details below are from the translation of an article in a Finnish newspaper named 'Ammennusatia'.]

A geological group who drilled a hole about 14.4 kilometers deep ( 9 miles) in the crust of the earth are saying that they heard human screams. Screams have been heard from the condemned souls from earth's deepest hole. Terrified scientists are afraid they have let loose the evil powers of hell up to the earth's surface.

'The information we are gathering is so surprising, that we are sincerely afraid of what we might find down there,' stated Dr Azzacov, the manager of the project in remote Siberia.

'The second surprise was the high temperature they discovered in the earth's center. 'The calculations indicate the given temperature was about 1,100 degrees Celsius, or over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit,' Azzacov pointed out. 'This is far more then we expected. It seems almost like an inferno of fire is brutally going on in the center of the earth.

'The last discovery was nevertheless the most shocking to our ears, so much so that the scientists are afraid to continue the project. We tried to listen to the earth's movements at certain intervals with super sensitive microphones, which were let down through the hole. What we heard turned those logically thinking scientists into a trembling ruins. It was a sometimes a weak, but high pitched sound which we thought to be coming from our own equipment,' explained Dr Azzacov.

'But after some adjustments we comprehended that indeed the sound came from the earth's interior. We could hardly believe our own ears. We heard a human voice, screaming in pain. Even though one voice was discernible, we could hear thousands, perhaps millions, in the background, of suffering souls screaming. After this ghastly discovery, about half of the scientists quit because of fear. Hopefully, that which is down there will stay there,' Dr Azzacov added.

'What really unnerved the Soviets, apart from the voice recordings, was the appearance that same night of a fountainhead of luminous gas shooting up from the drill site, and out of the midst of this incandescent cloud pillar a brilliant being with bat wings revealed itself with the words (in Russian): 'I have conquered,' emblazoned against the dark Siberian sky.

'The incident was absolutely unreal; the Soviets cried out in terror,' says Mr. Nummedal. Later that night, he saw ambulance crews circulating in the community. A driver he knew told him that they had been told to sedate everybody with a medication known to erase short term memory. The Soviets use this drug in the treatment of shock victims.

"As a communist I don’t believe in heaven or the Bible but as a scientist I now believe in hell," said Dr. Azzacove. "Needless to say we were shocked to make such a discovery. But we know what we saw and we know what we heard. And we are absolutely convinced that we drilled through the gates of Hell!"

Dr. Azzacove continued, ". . .the drill suddenly began to rotate wildly, indicating that we had reached a large empty pocket or cavern. Temperature sensors showed a dramatic increase in heat to 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit."

 "We lowered a microphone, designed to detect the sounds of plate movements down the shaft. But instead of plate movements we heard a human voice screaming in pain! At first we thought the sound was coming from our own equipment."

"But when we made adjustments our worst suspicions were confirmed. The screams weren’t those of a single human, they were the screams of millions of humans!

TCC - It is reported that the famous underwater explorer Jacques Costeau quit deep sea diving because he had heard in one of the underwater caves he was exploring, the sounds of people screaming. It is also reported that one of Costeau's team members was in a diving bell in the deepest trench at the Bermuda Triangle, and he had a similar experience. He signaled to be brought up. After being revived from his shock, he told others of his frightening experience of hearing "Screams of people in pain".

Here is a little more back story about the "Sounds of Hell" recording. It is sometime called "Well to Hell".
When this tale first made the news the religious TV station TBN got a hold of the recording and played it on TV worldwide. This was offered as proof of Hell and caused the mass spreading of the recording and story.
Some report that the whole story is a hoax ,while part of the story is based on some truth, in the end it was a hoax that was picked up by news papers and tabloid everywhere.

So in the end maybe we don't know the truth about the recording,but once you give it a listen you will have to admit it is scary sounding.

Thanks
Tom
