    Memories Are Passed On Through DNA: How Is this Not ‘Paranormal’?

    Scientists recently announced the discovery that memories seem to be passed down through the generations through DNA. “The experiences of a parent, before even conceiving offspring, markedly influence both structure and function in the nervous system of subsequent generations.” At first mention, one may think to oneself: okay, this makes sense, big deal. But actually […]

    Oculus, A Great Drive-in Movie

    Guest post by Billy Russell Going to the ol’ drive-in is still one of the most fun ways to experience a movie. You don’t go to the drive-in if you’re obsessively concerned with having the best possible sound and audio quality surrounding you with such pristine remasterings that any flaw or error will stand out […]

    Dario Argento’s Nightmare Fuel: the Surreal Horror of Suspiria

    *Guest Post by BILLY RUSSELL Much more so than many other “surreal” or “nightmarish” horrors, Suspiria truly captures the feeling of being trapped in a bad dream and being unable to awaken from it. There’s a self-contained logic that is never fully explained and real life is never allowed to intrude on the macabre story […]

    Passenger from MH Flight 370 Sends Photo/Metadata from Diego Garcia!

    We had a feeling this one wasn’t over yet. The incredible media attention to the Malaysian Flight 370 mystery has yielded a shocking new revelation. We already knew that the United States had a military base, DIEGO GARCIA, in the Indian Ocean near where the plane may have gone down. New information has surfaced from […]

    Creepy Vintage Photos of MUMMIES!

    Mummy unwrapping ceremonies used to occur fairly regularly. For Victorians and 1950s German academics, it was actually a form of entertainment. Held in lecture halls and universities, mummy unwrapping parties became morbid high brow academic ceremonies fusing the latest archeological discoveries of the time with the public’s own twisted love of the dead and grotesque.

How To Make Money With Psychic Powers

ESP skeptics often ask: if there are people out there who have psychic abilities, why don’t they use those powers to make money at casinos or on the stock market, or to win the lottery? There are several problems with this question. One, it is assuming that financial gain would necessarily be the top priority […]

Some of the More Bizarre Funerals

In our morbidity, we think about death…a lot. Probably too much, in fact. But what does it matter, in a hundred years we’ll all be dead anyway, right? Unless…life extension? We found ourselves talking about the trippiest possible funerals, viewing funerals as epic final goodbyes. Hunter S. Thompson had his ashes shot in the air […]

Old Mysterious Photos that will Haunt Your Dreams

Looking at old vintage photos out of context is not only a recipe for creepiness, it’s also one of our favorite pastimes. What passed for everyday life 60+ years ago might send you running down the block screaming today. The following photos are downright eerie, anyway you spin it. And since we cannot explain many […]

Would You Take a One-Way Trip to Another Star System?

In a recent post for our friends, the Immortalists (they’re going to live forever), GD writer Jake Anderson speculated as to whether we’ll need life extension and augmentation in order to travel to the nearest star Alpha Centauri. Short of developing a wormhole or faster than light speed travel, we determined that a trip to […]

Will the Singularity Be Privatized? Welcome to Life

We were exposed to a great video recently, entitled “Welcome To Life: the singularity, ruined by lawyers”. The video imagines an individual waking up in cyberspace limbo in the year 2052 with the opportunity to live a simulated life in an advanced cloud based network called The Life Network. Thanks to your primary care provider, […]

On Cahuilla Mountain in Search of Legendary UFO Goldie

Billy Russell In the summer of 2006, I was 20 years old and I was unemployed. I was living with my parents and had all the free time in the world and no money to do much of anything unless it was free or someone was willing to buy me dinner or a movie ticket. […]

Mickey Mouse Gas Masks from WWII Era

The fear of chemical warfare caused mass hysteria across the globe during War World II. In England, for instance, citizens (including infants) were given government-issued gas masks in case the Germans dropped poison gas bombs. Schools and offices ran gas mask training courses and people were instructed to keep their masks with them day and […]

Adam Lanza’s Eerie Voice – One Year Before Newtown

In our morbidity, we find few things more engrossing than the minds of killers. We’ll probably never know what precise neurochemical demon haunted Adam Lanza before he killed 26 people in Newtown. But a new audio recording has surfaced that sheds some light on his state of mind, the kinds of things he thought about, […]

The Dark Web: Assassination Markets and Murder Networks

We live in future times, always have. With the rise of the Dark Web, it’s stranger than ever–sinister alliances and transactions are forged over the worldwide web every waking moment. The Silk Road was just the beginning, the tip of the iceberg, our first dalliance with an illegal online network on the Tor browser. Now […]
