A haunting in Cardiff
Posted on 2-6-2016

By: kitlin124 | Location: Cardiff, Wales

We ( me, my mum, brothers and sisters ) used to live in a house by the Ebeneezer Church in Pearl St. next door to a man and his 7 children. Our house numbers were 214 and 212. Whilst baby sitting one night I knew my mum would be home with her friends soon so I went to put the kettle on ready for tea. When I came back into the room there was a man sat on the sofa, legs crossed at the ankles ..fast asleep with his trilby over his face.

Just then mum and the others came into the room. I popped to the kitchen to bring them tea but I found it awkward trying to step over this very dapper gent. "How rude is that," I said, "being invited to someone's home and going to sleep, the nerve of it." As I took note of this man he had a green gabardine coat... like a mac with the belt buckled up, stone colour trousers with small turned up hem and brown shiny leather laced up shoes with a pattern etched on the front of them. His hair cut was almost Air Force like, very trim yet very silver.

Over a period of hours I considered waking this chap up, so I neared him and said "hello, hello" but he never stirred, so I was about to take his hat from his face when I felt an awful feeling come over me of fear, so I resisted and walked to the other room. As the night went on I had tried three times to take the hat off his face and I couldn't - I was too afraid. Something inside was telling me "no, don't do it" and I felt very edgy about it. As the night went on I busied myself in the kitchen and not long later I heard mum's friends saying goodbye to her and as I went to say goodbye to them I saw this man leaving. He had his back to me and I watched him walk up the passage to the front door. As he went out of the door he disappeared into the night.

The next morning my mum had asked me, "who was that man on the sofa?" I looked at her and said "I don't know?, he came in just before you did, I thought he was one of your friends?" Mum replied "NO, I didn't know him either, and what time did he leave here?" I saw him walk past my mum on his way out. It had left us pretty stumped about him, yet even until today I can still see that man's image so very clearly. He was just one of the hauntings inside of this house.

Eventually mum asked a priest to bless each room as every night something else would happen i.e. heavy walking coming up the stairs, even a shadow of it, yet it never opened the bedroom door as it seemed to sense we were there, and then walked back down stairs. Later when I went downstairs to double check the doors and windows I found them still all locked securely. Lots of strange happenings went on for the whole of the time we lived there and the same was happening next door.

The priest had said to mum he was so very sorry, but there were far too many souls that are unrested in every room in the house and that these two houses were built on top of a graveyard that goes back centuries that once belonged to the church next door but one, which was built round about 1600. It still goes on today, the seeing and being touched by someone or something that can hide itself and play games with you and your mind.

One day I awoke to find a dead mouse on the pillow next me - there was no way that mouse had died there on the pillow - it was placed there for me to wake up to and to be the first thing I saw when I opened my eyes that morning. Many things went on in different rooms of the house and out the back yard was more happenings. This all started from the age of 12 and was still going on when I left home at the age of 21. And if I was to go back to this house tomorrow, in less than 15 minutes something else would happen for certain.

NYC police say drone hits Empire State Building
Published February 05, 2016 FoxNews.com


Police say a man was arrested after he apparently lost control of a small drone that crashed into the Empire State Building.

The drone hit the 40th floor of the 1,454-foot landmark skyscraper and then fell to a 35th floor landing at about 8 p.m. Thursday.

New York City police say the 29-year-old man went to the Manhattan building's security to request his drone back, but the guards called police.

The man was arrested at the scene on charges of reckless endangerment and navigation in and over the city. His name was not immediately released.

Enormous canyon may be hidden beneath Antarctic ice
By Stephanie Pappas

A rift almost as deep as the Grand Canyon but much longer may be hidden beneath the Antarctic Ice Sheet.

Using satellite images and radio waves, researchers have uncovered tantalizing hints of a canyon up to 0.6 miles (1 kilometer) deep and more than 680 miles (1,100 km) long. For comparison, the Grand Canyon in Arizona is 1 mile (1.6 km) deep, on average, and 277 river miles (445 km) long.

Now, they hope to confirm the discovery on the ground. "Discovering a gigantic new chasm that dwarfs the Grand Canyon is a tantalizing prospect," Martin Siegert, an earth scientist at Imperial College London, said in a statement. "Geoscientists in Antarctica are carrying out experiments to confirm what we think we are seeing from the initial data."

Siegert and his colleagues announced their initial findings online Dec. 22 in the journal Geology.

The suspected canyon is in East Antarctica, in a region called Princess Elizabeth Land. Researchers were trying to measure ice thickness in this little-explored area when they found evidence of a large river network under the glacial ice. They suspect that the network may include a previously undiscovered glacial lake up to 483 square miles (1,250 square km) in size. This possible lake and canyon network could be older than the ice sheet itself, or they could have been carved out by flowing water under the glacier, the researchers said.

The building is set to be 5,577ft tall and play host to 55,000 people

    Matt Payton



It will be 5,577ft tall when built KPF

Plans for a mile high skyscraper in Tokyo could be twice as tall as the current tallest building in the world, Dubai's Burj Khalifa.

This super-tall building is set to reach a height of 5,577ft and host up to 55,000 people in Tokyo bay, an inlet southeast of the Japanese capital.

If the plans are accepted - the 'Sky Mile Tower' would be surrounded by a series of man-made hexagonal islands, Architectural Digest reports.

These islands are designed to protect Tokyo from flooding and act as foundation for homes for around half a million people.

The skyscraper is set to be completed by 2045.

The Himalayas are said to be home to the legendary Yeti. Image Credit: CC BY-SA 2.0 Dirk Hartung
Steve Berry encountered a mysterious set of single-file tracks on a steep mountain slope in Bhutan.
The 66-year-old had been trekking along a remote pass in the Himalayan Mountains when he came across the trail which was situated only yards away from an impassable chasm.

"The local people said we were the first to ever set foot on that pass," he said. "I had always thought that stories about the yeti were a bit of old bunkum. But there is no denying these tracks existed."

"The prints were clearly visible with the naked eye from where we were standing on a pass at 17,800ft. There was a vertical drop in front of us, not to mention a very serious mountainside to cross, so we could not get to them."

Not everyone is convinced however that the prints represent evidence of the Abominable Snowman.

Cryptozoologist Jon Downes, director of the Center for Fortean Zoology, believes that the tracks in the picture are more likely to be those of a mountain goat than a large hominid.

"I think that the chances of these prints being from anything more interesting are negligible and it is certainly not a bipedal higher primate," he said. "The center of gravity for such an animal would mean it just wouldn’t be able to venture up a mountain like that."

FACT OR FICTION: YETI FACTS


Tibetan folklore has it that the yeti is nocturnal, whistles, and can kill with a single punch.

Actor James Stewart smuggled a yeti ‘finger’ into London by hiding it among his wife’s lingerie after holidaying in India in 1959.

Sherpa tradition holds that the yeti will only show itself to those who believe in it.

Possible explanations for yeti tracks include melting snow, overlapping hind and forefeet animal tracks and prints left by nomads wearing snow sandals.

Until 1847, the gorilla was thought of as a myth in the west and was believed to be supernatural being by African tribespeople.

Heinrich Himmler is said to have had an interest in finding the creature, sending scientist Ernst Schaefer, to Tibet to search for it in 1938.
