Fantastically Wrong: The Strange Real-Life Origins of the Fiendish Werewolf. Name a culture somewhere on Planet Earth and more than likely the werewolf stalks its folklore, from African and Asian tribes all the way up to the classic (and confusing) Altered Beast of Sega Genesis. Even if there are no wolves on the continent, the culture just substitutes the most ferocious mammalian carnivore they’ve got, according to Caroline Taylor Stewart in her essay “The Origin of the Werewolf Superstition.” So while the Germans and Brits and Native Americans have the werewolf we know so well, in east Africa men transform into lions (in west Africa it’s leopards), while the Arawak people of South America do their best to avoid turning into jaguars.Source: Wired

Pastor: Gay People Are Possessed By Fart Demons. Bert Farias, a pastor and founder of Holy Fire Ministries, has said the reason why people are homosexual is because they are possessed by fart demons. He claims that once a person chooses to be gay, it opens them up to engaging in ‘unclean demonic practices’.

The Joy of Six: Sports Ghost Stories. When it comes to ghosts and sports we normally think along the lines of the apparitions of seasons past. It might be teams or players struggling to overcome hoodoos and curses; the curse of the Bambino; the Chicago Cubs’ curse of the billy goat; Hawthorn’s Kennett curse; the Madden cover curse; or the Socceroos’ witch doctor curse. Put simply, sports fans are a superstitious lot, but that’s not what we’re talking about here. We’re talking about actual ghosts, if such things exist. This week we learned it’s not just metaphorical ghosts that are haunting English cricket. Such is the laundry list of the ills to have befallen Alastair Cook’s side in the past two years, even the poltergeist community has decided to sink the boots. News emerged this week that strapping young fast bowlers of the ilk of Stuart Broad and Ben Stokes were fleeing level three of the Langham Hotel in London on account of a paranormal presence, bringing to mind a host of other sporting ghost stories.Source: The Guardian

Is There A Black Country Triangle? West Midlands Police Receive Scores Of 999 Calls In Three Years Reporting Sightings Of Witches, Zombies And Ghosts.  West Midlands Police have received 71 reports of witches ghosts and zombies over a three year period - however the Black Country is officially werewolf-free.

Lake Pepin’s Rumored Creature May Be Folklore Come To Life

There it … there it is! Over by that fishing boat. No, there! Omigosh, they don’t see it! They must think it’s a log.

Unless it is a log.

Or a catfish. Or an otter. Or a boat wake.

But it also could be a sea serpent. (It could be.)

For hundreds of years, people have glanced across the glistening waters of Lake Pepin, where the Mississippi River widens to a basin as long and wide as Scotland’s famous Loch Ness (the same size!), and seen … something.

Most often, the sight turns out to be a dead tree hung up on a sandbar, or a huge sturgeon breaking the surface, or the wake of a boat unfurling toward shore.

But not always. (Maybe.)
