Previously, they had believed it was due to algae discoloring the water, however that hypothesis was never verified. Thanks to research by the University of Alaska Fairbanks, we know … Continue reading Blood Falls – Antarctica
The story took place two-years-ago. I was on my second week backpacking through Austria and I reached a point where I was too exhausted to walk any longer.

I was in the middle of nowhere and decided to thumb a lift to the nearest train … Continue reading Hitchhiking Gone Wrong

I was working in a big grocery warehouse, hundreds of people worked there, it was night shift, sitting in a break room at lunch with a couple of other guys trying to find something to talk about to stay awake. I started talking about the best jobs I’d ever had. After a minute or so … Continue reading His Lovers? Or His Victims?

One summer when I was about 14 I was out in the middle of the woods playing with my dog (I’m an only child and … Continue reading In The Middle Of The Woods

Raymond Robinson (October 29, 1910 – June 11, 1985) was a severely disfigured man whose years of nighttime walks made him into a figure of urban legend in western Pennsylvania. Robinson was so badly injured in a childhood electrical accident that he could not go out in public without fear of creating a panic, so he went for long walks at night. Local tourists would drive along his road … Continue reading Charlie No-Face
My husband and I live in a small, unincorporated town on the outskirts of a bigger city. Although we are almost 50 years old, we are 30 to 40 years younger than any of our near neighbors. Most of them have grandchildren who visit regularly, and drive them wherever they need to go. Not so for the man I usually just called “Professor.” His wife, … Continue reading Maria
