COMMON NIGHTMARES & THEIR MEANINGS

The Cumberland Spaceman is a photograph taken by Jim Templeton in 1964. Templeton claims the photograph shows a background figure wearing a space suit and insists that he did not see anyone present when the photograph was taken.
Templeton insists that he did not see the figure until after his photographs were developed, and analysts at Kodak confirmed that the photograph was genuine.

I actually watched a documentary about unexplained photographs and this one was explained. The “spaceman” is actually the man’s wife. The sun had high contrast, and had distorted the figure. The man claimed he didn’t know because he didn’t. The camera’s view only captured something like 30-50% of the photo he was actually taking.

This video is of a girl named Elisa Lam, a 21 year old Canadian who mysteriously disappeared in the Cecil Hotel in LA back in February.  This is the last known footage if her, take note of how strange she acts. Some people think she was on drugs and paranoid. Others are thinking that she was being stalked. Some have speculated that this is the work of the paranormal.

Whatever it is, its very disturbing to know where she ended up.

Her body was found naked two weeks later in the hotel water tower on the roof. Hotel guests were drinking and bathing in her rotting corpse for two weeks and nobody can understand how she got there without breaking locks and triggering the alarms to the doors.

On 12 September 1996, obsessed fan Ricardo López mailed an acid-spraying letter bomb to Björk’s London home and then killed himself, but the package was intercepted by the Metropolitan Police Service. López filmed himself in the process of making the acid bomb intended to kill her. The nearly 18 hours of videotape described López’s obsession with Björk, the construction of the device, his thoughts on love and other subjects, including racial remarks against Björk’s then-boyfriend Goldie. The video footage continues after his mailing the bomb to Björk’s London home and ends dramatically as López applies face paint, shaves his head and commits suicide by shooting himself on camera.

Haunted Waynesville and Surrounding Areas in NC
Woolsey Heights (Waynesville, NC) A man killed his wife in their home and then committed suicide. Neighbors say they see her ghost in the windows and her rocking chair rocking. An actual witness who stayed with a neighbor frequently while in school heard and saw things that she can’t even explain, even though she does not believe in ghosts.

Balsam Mountain Inn Sylva, North Carolina 7 miles from Waynesville, NC This early-1900s inn has two haunted rooms: 205 and 207. There are logs in the room where guests can write about anything strange that occurs during their stay. Folks have reported footsteps, jiggling doorknobs, unexplained noises, and other sounds of someone making a racket in the hallway.

Asheville, NC - The Smith-McDowell House, built in 1840, is said to be haunted by two little girls who died in the building, named Carrie and Sarah, as well as a specter called the Dark One, who is believed to be the spirit of a slave owner. Witnesses have captured photos of a dark misty entity and have heard their names called, felt a cold presence, and been touched by something unseen in the basement.

Heaven’s Gate Suicide

Heaven’s Gate was a group of people that were led by Marshall Applewhite. It was a religious group that thought the Eart was about to be “recycled” and the only way to survive this was to leave ASAP. They decided to commit mass suicide. They believed if they committed mass suicide, they would be transported to a space-ship that was following the Hale-Bopp comet.

They also decided to wear the same brand of Nike Shoes (as seen in the pictures)

There is also WEBSITE that still updates and there is also someone that will answer your emails. 

I’m getting a lot of asks about contacting them. If you do decide to email them, you should def. take a screen cap and submit it! That would be really fun

The “Beast of Dartmoor” in England, a legendary animal that has been sighted many times, though here it is supposedly caught on film. Most oral sightings report a “puma-like” big cat, and there is apparently more than one, as both black and the beige cougar color have been described. Some have also reported seeing a leopard, a “bear-like” black beast, and a lion. The animal in the video is hard to make out, but many people believe it to be a black leopard/jaguar, a black lion (most likely not, as there is no proof of a melanistic lion ever existing beyond some photoshopped photos), and a boar/suidae. 

The legend, however, claims that the giant black animals in Dartmoor are “yeth hounds,” demon-eyed black dogs that are actually the lost and demonic souls of dead and lost children, and they emit an inhuman scream when hunting. If they catch you, it is said they drag you to a faraway place never to be found again.
