Panties of Peril Stolen — And Police Warn Thief Could Die From “Curse.”   3 comments

Can an ordinary pair of panties like these kill?

NEVER put on these panties — no matter what, authorities warn.

By C. Michael Forsyth

EDISON, N.J. — The notorious Panties of Peril, widely considered the world’s most dangerous paranormal object, have been stolen from a heavily guarded titanium vault – and authorities fear that whoever ripped off the undies is in mortal peril!

“Four women who wore this undergarment suffered cruel and bizarre deaths,” warned Dr. Dan Greavesby of the prestigious New Jersey Institute for Paranormal Research. “Second only to plutonium, we consider the Panties of Peril to be, pound for pound, the most harmful material on Earth to human life. We’re pleading with whoever took them to return them at once – before he or she suffers a similar fate.”

Investigators say the panties were stored in a 16” by 18” safe within a second 3’ by 5′ safe, 140 feet below the surface in the sub-sub basement of the famous institute. The culprits dug a tunnel beneath the safe and drilled into it from below. Police are unsure of the motives of the thief or thieves.

“It could be a collector of rare occult objects,” said Det. John Relters of the State Special Investigations Bureau. “It might be a deviant with an underwear fetish or even simply college pranksters bent on pulling off ‘the ultimate panty raid.’ But whoever is in possession of those panties is playing with fire. From what we’ve been told, even someone who horses around with the underwear on his head could die within minutes.”

The strange tale of the dreaded drawers first came to light in April, 2010 as reported here later that year. College coed Amber Walyde, 19, was electrocuted by her blow dryer soon after purchasing the innocuous-looking, pink cotton panties. Her death was quickly followed by that of her roommate, killed in a freak Segway accident, and then her kid sister Raven, who suffered an allergic reaction to a bee sting while dancing around in the panties she’d inherited. After the first victim’s Aunt Sandy was decapitated by a falling ceiling fan, the panties were turned over to the institute for safe keeping.

“The supernatural mechanism at work remains unclear,” revealed Dr. Greavesby. “We have traced the garment back to a factory in Manila, which is ground zero for a little-understood form of witchcraft known as kulam. One theory is that a disgruntled factory worker placed a curse upon the panties. Or it’s possible they are possessed by the vengeful spirit of an employee who died in a building collapse that year.”

Any contact with human skin is dangerous, experts say. The panties can be handled safely only with lead-lined gloves. A research assistant donned the underwear for two minutes in what Dr. Greavesby now acknowledges was a very risky experiment. The heart monitor used to make sure she was all right short-circuited, delivering an electrical shock that put her into cardiac arrest.

“Miraculously we were able to enter the hermitically sealed chamber and remove the panties in time to resuscitate her,” the expert divulged.

Now cops are hoping against hope that the thief they’ve dubbed the Panties of Peril Pervert will recognize how foolhardy his actions were and turn in the lethal lingerie. The Institute has offered a $100,000 reward for the safe return of the Panties of Peril.

“All we want is the underwear back – no questions asked,” the researcher said.

How To Survive A Haunted House: 7 Lifesaving Tips!   1 comment

SMART MOVE: Taking refuge in the basement of a haunted house could save your life, expert says.

SMART MOVE: Taking refuge in the basement of a haunted house could save your life.

By C. Michael Forsyth

EDISON, N.J. –If you find yourself trapped in a haunted house with a malevolent ghost, head straight to the basement. That’s the surprising advice of a top expert in the supernatural!

“It sounds counterintuitive, but a lot of behaviors that seem stupid in a horror movie turn out to be highly successful survival strategies in the real world,” reveals Dr. Dan Greavesby of the New Jersey Institute for Paranormal Research.

“Disembodied souls generally frequent the areas of a house where they spent the most time while alive – for example the master bedroom or the kitchen. People spend hardly any time in their basement. That’s why it’s the place you’re least likely to encounter a ghost. If your haunted house doesn’t have a cellar, take refuge in the attic during a crisis.”

Here are six other vital tips from the researcher:

• ALWAYS SPLIT UP – “A ghost possesses only a finite amount of psychic energy,” Dr. Greavesby points out. “If it tries to attack five different people in five different rooms, that energy is divided and the ghost is weakened.”

SPLITTING up didn't work out so well for the characters in

SPLITTING up didn’t work out so well for the characters in “Scary Movie 2,” but in real life the strategy works.

• USE A FLICKERING FLASHLIGHT – A flashlight with a loose connection or dying batteries can save your hide. “Contrary to common belief, ghosts can’t see in the dark any better than the living can,” reveals the expert. “Indeed, you have the advantage since once the room is pitch black, you can feel your way out. Because a ghost’s hand will pass through solid objects, he or she can’t do that.”

FLASHLIGHT that doesn't work gives you an advantage over ghosts.

• DON’T LEAVE THE HOUSE AS SOON AS YOU REALIZE IT’S HAUNTED – Packing your bags and fleeing with your family at the first sign of trouble is useless and potentially dangerous. “An evil spirit often follows a victim from one house to the next and may be angered that you’ve ‘abandoned’ it,” the expert explains.

CHAIRS mysteriously stacking themselves is no cause to put out a For Sale sign.

WHAT, me worry? Best to ignore signs something supernatural is going on.

WHAT, me worry? Best to ignore signs something supernatural is going on.

• REFUSE TO BELIEVE THE HOUSE IS HAUNTED NO MATTER HOW OBVIOUS — Ignore the warnings of old caretakers, ominous sounds, objects that move inexplicably, dolls whose heads turn in your direction and your children’s reports of having seen dead people. “Ghosts feed on fear – it’s the primary source of their energy,” says Greavesby. “Showing no fear causes that energy to dissipate. If you appear oblivious to the presence of a ghost after two months of rigorous haunting, it will grow frustrated and weary and cease its efforts to harass you.”

WE ain't afraid of no ghosts. Bill Murray wasn't afraid to poke fun at spirits in

• TAUNT THE SPIRIT – “You have to show the ghost who’s boss as soon as you move in,” explains the expert. “It’s like dealing with a bad dog. Establish early on who’s the alpha, the dominant one in the situation, and nine times out of ten it will back down.” Laughter is a potent weapon, he adds. “Mockery and insults such as classic ‘Yo mama’ jokes can quickly rob a ghost of its ‘mojo’. Curse words can be very effective, especially against spirits who lived in the 19th century and are unaccustomed to foul language.”

 

 

• HANDLE CURSED OBJECTS — Don’t hesitate to march into a “forbidden” room and pick up the dead person’s former prized possessions such as antique jewelry or an eerily lifelike portrait. Notes Greavesby, “If you boldly put on that necklace you’ve been warned never to touch, stare in the ‘haunted mirror’ and give the ghost you see behind you the finger, the spirit will know you can’t be intimidated and will most likely give up.”

WHY let the fact that a piece of jewelry is cursed stop you from putting it on?

TEXTS FROM THE DEAD: New Paranormal Phenomenon Baffles Scientists.   8 comments

The dead try to reach us using the means they did in life, experts say.

The dead try to reach us using the means they did in life, experts say.

DENVER, Colo. — Researchers have identified a baffling paranormal phenomenon they’ve dubbed “texts from the dead” — and they say it’s becoming increasingly prevalent.

The eerie messages from beyond are the modern equivalent of those inexplicable phone calls from the dead that have been reported since the late 19th century.

Scientists from the Colorado Institute for Paranormal Research analyzed 132 mysterious texts received by loved ones hours, days or months after the phone’s owner passed away. And they confirmed that in 94 of those cases, the only reasonable explanation is that the messages originated in the Great Beyond.

“The slang and abbreviations people use when texting are as individualistic as handwriting,” explains lead researcher Dr. Nick Horn. “We were able to confirm with a high degree of certainty that the messages were indeed composed by people who were no longer living.”

In one striking case, a 19-year-old New Mexico college student was killed in a head-on collision after a heated quarrel with her mother. The last text the mother received read, “Soree mom. 4 giv me.” Incredibly, investigation revealed that the message was sent two hours AFTER the teen was pronounced dead at the hospital.

“There is no possibility that someone else texted the mother as a cruel prank,” Dr. Horn notes. “The phone was recovered from the wreck smashed to bits and melted.”

RECEIVING a phone call from a dead loved one can be unsettling, as in this "Twilight Zone" episode.

RECEIVING a phone call from a dead loved one can be unsettling, as in this “Twilight Zone” episode.

The dear departed are not above sexting, researchers were startled to discover. Six months after a Minnesota man’s fiancée died of a brain tumor, he received a sexually explicit text from her phone. Uncannily, at the time the spicy message was sent, the deceased woman’s phone was in a kitchen drawer, uncharged, and the account had been deactivated.

“The message invited him to join her in specific physical acts using coded phrases such as ‘play helicopter’ only the two of them understood,” says the expert. “Attached to the text was the blurry image of a nude figure that resembled the deceased fiancée.”

The first known case of what parapsychologists refer to technically as the “phantom text messaging effect” or PTME was in 2006 and since then the number of reports have steadily risen. In some instances a restless soul pours out a declaration of love or fires off a parting shot in the form of an insult, such as, “nvr lked U, A-hole.” Other texts are more mundane, such as reminders to pick up dry cleaning, horse racing tips, or the location of insurance documents.

INVENTOR Alexander Graham Bell patented the telephone in 1876.

While the phenomenon is relatively new, phone calls from the dead have been cited as proof of life after death — and have been a staple of ghost stories — for decades.

“The first phantom phone call was reported in 1886, just ten years after Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone, “ revealed Dr. Horn. “Three years after the Titanic sank, an S.O.S from the vessel was received by a Norwegian freighter, the first known ghost Morse Code message. The first fax from the other side was reported in 1987, a few years after the fax machine came into popular use. And emails from the dead began to crop up in the mid-1990s.

“The departed are always trying to communicate with their loved ones and they use the means they were familiar with in life. With every technological advance, the paranormal application trails a little bit behind.

“We anticipate getting reports on tweets from the dead in the next year or two.”

PERVERTED POLTERGEIST: Ghost Haunts Top Women’s College Locker Room   Leave a comment

COLLEGE locker rooms should be a place for carefree girl talk, as shown in this movie scene.

By C. Michael Forsyth

NORTHHAMPTON, Mass. — Students at the nation’s most prestigious women’s college complain that the restless spirit of a Peeping Tom who kicked the bucket in 1902 is up to his old tricks — and has been spying on them in the locker room!

Frazzled female athletes at Smith College claim that the ghost of school janitor Barney Feckham lurks around the shower stalls of the gymnasium, getting an eyeful of the bathing beauties and fondling them every chance he gets.

“The ghost won’t keep his hands to himself. Girls have had their bottoms smacked and their nipples tweaked — it’s an unacceptable situation,” revealed a school administrator who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

A student who asked to be identified only by her first name, Lisa, claims she had a bone-chilling encounter with the perverted poltergeist.

“I was toweling off after a shower and the whole time I had the eerie feeling I was being watched,” she said. “When I bent over to dry off my leg, I felt an ice-cold finger goose me. When I turned around, there was no one there. It totally freaked me out.”

PRESTIGIOUS Smith College was founded in 1871.

Renowned psychic investigator Dan Greavesby of the New Jersey Institute for Paranormal Research, based in Edison N.J., has been called in by school officials to probe the case. His research has uncovered a tragic history surrounding the disembodied spirit of the maintenance man.

“Barney Feckham was a longtime employee of the college, respected for his dedication to his duty,” Greavesby reveals. “He was especially attentive when it came to the locker room, lingering there long after hours to clean up and make repairs.

“One day it became apparent just why he was so concerned about that particular area of the school. He’d drilled a hole through which he spied on the students as they undressed and showered.”

When the scandal came to light, Barney was sacked. But he was so humiliated that instead of returning home to his wife, he hanged himself in the very locker room that was the scene of his shame.

PEEPING TOM Barney Feckham allegedly spied on these beauties on the Smith College basketball team.

Barney’s ghost first appeared in the spring of 1903, six months after his untimely death.

“Girls would be chatting gaily in the communal shower and suddenly see a spectral figure drifting through the steam around them,” Greavesby says. “Or they would be dressing and turn to see Barney’s leering face in the mirror. Other times, he was unseen but they would hear him whistling his favorite tune, Danny Boy, just before they were groped by an icy hand.”

In the course of his research, Greavesby came across a rare photograph of what appears to be the entity in action, snapped in 1906 by pioneering ghost photographer Horace Wakeford. It shows what Wakeford described in notes as “ectoplasmic material” in the shape of a man reaching toward a showering student.

SPIRIT OR ODD REFLECTION? Eerie photo taken by pioneering ghost hunter Horace Wakeford in 1906 shows what appears to be a man-shaped figure lurking amid unsuspecting students.

Over the decades, the strange apparition has cycled through periods of activity and dormancy. After a flurry of sightings in the 1980s, Barney went on a 26-year hiatus. But this fall, the girl-crazy ghost is back with a vengeance.

“At least 14 students claim to have seen or been sexually harassed by Barney’s ghost so far this term,” reveals Greavesby. “Dozens of others report experiencing an odd sense of being watched.”

School administrators are playing down the haunting and officially deny having brought in the psychic investigator.

“Every old new England college has its share of ghost rumors,” said a spokesperson. “Smith has no more paranormal activity than any other Ivy League institution.”

The expert came with an arsenal of 21st century ghost-hunting gear, including electromagnetic field detectors, infrared scanners, super-sensitive microphones and a dozen full-spectrum video cameras capable of picking up light frequencies invisible to the human eye.

WATCHFUL EYE: Array of high-tech camcorders have been set up to spot ghost.

“Students can be confident that the locker room is under 24-hour surveillance,” says Greavesby.

Several worried parents who’ve heard the ghost reports are demanding that school officials summon an exorcist to expel the lecherous entity from college grounds. But Greavesby believes that if he can communicate with Barney, he can convince the weirdo wraith to knock of his antics voluntarily. And even if he can’t, the manifestations will eventually run their course.

“Barney’s spirit is fulfilling desires he had as a living human on the earthly plane,” the scientist explains.

“In time, he will have had his fill of eyeing nude young women and will be ready to move on to the other side. It may take 10 years, 50 years or even 200 years. No one can be sure. But one day he will be ready to march down that tunnel toward the bright light.”
