Chinese Chupacabra Captured

A mystery beast that resembles a chupacabra (”goat-sucker”), a legendary, fearsome and possibly mythical beast said to inhabit parts of the Americas and Puerto Rico, is seen shortly after its capture in a village in Suining, Sichuan Province on March 24.

In this case, the gray colored animal wasn’t attacking goats, but chickens and it was the fowls’ cries that alerted village Ke Suying to find the mystery predator tearing into his birds. He tried to drive it away with a stick but failed, though later with the help of neighbors caught it in a steel net.

It resembles a large rat or a mutant mix of kangaroo and dog, with large claws. It is about 60 centimeters long, with a 30-centimeter tail. Villagers describe it as “quite fierce” and said it ravenously consumes both meat and vegetables fed to it.

Most of its brown fur has fallen out, with only a little left on its back and a front foot.

The creature has been given to the Sichuan Province forestry department for further examination.

Water and the Paranormal?

The question is, does water have any effect on the paranormal activity of a location?

The truth to the answer is nobody knows how water affects paranormal activity. There is alot of Hollywood theories. In the Paranormal T.V. show Ghost Lab, they set out to Nottoway Plantation to test the theory of the effects of water on the paranormal. Their results showed (and you should really watch the episode) that water did have an effect on the level and location of actvity. The movie Constantine has many references to water and the paranormal. When most people speak about water and the paranormal, they are typically citing the work of others or their own experiments. There are no studies. There is no direct correlation currently. However, this is slowly changing. The data is finally starting to be collected in some areas. For example, in the ParaMap database (, you can run geographical scans of states, plotting haunting reports against their water table zones. In some cases there are patterns. For example, in Michigan, many hauntings do not fall in a specific zone, but instead fall where there is a change in the zone. This does not mean that the paranormal is affected by water, but it is food for thought. There is a few other paranormal hypothesises that support this.

Paranormal activity is related to moon phases. - The moon affects the tides and thus water levels.

Paranormal activity is affected by humidity. - Some theorize that less humidity allows better chances of activity.

Ghosts are bioelectrical matrices left over after death. - Thus electromagnetic fields and electricity could affect them.

So after taking all of this into consideration, answering the question of whether or not water has an effect on the paranormal, our answer would be YES. When further research into this subject is completed, we will be the first in line to read the results.

The Best Ghost Videos

One of my favorite sites, they post videos from all over the world. Whether or not they're real, some of them are amazing videos and are worth spending a minute or two to watch.

Legendary Bachelor's Grove Cemetery

Many have seen it for themselves and many have heard its legends. For some, it is a place of happiness. Where family would once have picnics and swim in its pond, remembering their lost loved ones. For others, it is a place of sorrow and amazement. Where people see balls of light floating among them and human forms appear only to vanish before their eyes.

The Study of Ley Lines

Ley lines are alleged alignments of a number of places of geographical interest, such as ancient monuments and megaliths that are thought by certain adherents to dowsing and New Age beliefs to have spiritual power. Their existence was suggested in 1921 by the amateur archaeologist Alfred Watkins, in his book The Old Straight Track. The believers in ley lines think that the lines and their intersection points resonate a special psychic or mystical energy. Ascribing such characteristics to ley lines has led to the term being classified as pseudoscience.

Ley lines can be the product of ancient surveying, property markings, or commonly traveled pathways. Many cultures use straight lines across the landscape. In South America, such lines often are directed towards mountain peaks; the Nazca lines are a famous example of lengthy lines made by ancient cultures. Straight lines connect ancient pyramids in Mexico; today, modern roads built on the ancient roads deviate around the huge pyramids. The Chaco culture of Northwestern New Mexico cut stairs into sandstone cliffs to facilitate keeping roads straight. Additionally, chance alignments and coincidence are often cited as explanations that cannot be ruled out.
