Was the Creepy Lake Man a glitch in the matrix, a ghost, or something altogether more terrifying.
The falling body ghost goes like this…
Sometime in the 1950s the Cooper family of Texas bought an old house and moved into it. On their first night there, the father took a photo of Mom and Grandma posing with the two kids at the dining room table. Everyone was happy and smiling. They were living the American dream.
But when the photo was subsequently developed, they saw, to their horror, that what looked like a body falling or hanging from the ceiling had materialized behind them. It hadn’t been there when the father took the photo. So where had it come from? Was it an apparition of a deceased former tenant of the house? No one knew.
Although bizarre, out of place clown sightings are nothing new. The summer of 2016 has certainly provided us with remarkably disturbing and noteworthy encounters.
The first incredibly disturbing account happened at a South Carolina apartment complex. This is a statement from one of the parents of the children.
“‘Mama, there’s clowns out there in the woods and they’re trying to get us to come out there.’ Some had chains, some had knives, and some were holding out money, saying, ‘Come here, we’ve got candy for you,’ but they wouldn’t go.”
Much like the adults in Stephen Kings “It”, the children’s claims of seeing clowns was met with skepticism, until they themselves started seeing and hearing the culprits.
Sightings soon cropped up in North Carolina and Ohio. An Ohio teen claimed to have seen and been chased by someone wearing clown garb and wielding a knife.
I recently came across this sighting while scrolling through my instagram feed. This happened just yesterday, Saturday morning, October 1st. 2016. Sure it would be easy to fake. But in light of all these recent sightings, it makes the encounter genuinely creepy.
In 1988, a Swiss entrepreneur was vacationing in Egypt when a rare opportunity came to him. A man approached him and asked if he, for almost 3000 Egyptian pounds, would be interested in viewing a rare find that he had obtained from grave robbers. A lover of Egyptian antiquity, he could not say no.
It was brought out in musty rags, and when it was unfurled, the contents shocked the Swiss tourist. It was a massive, mummified finger. It appeared to be hacked off, jagged bone poking out of the end and was the size of the average human arm.
The Swiss man took photos of it and as he did he was informed that it was taken from a gravesite near the great pyramids and was thought to be the finger of Nephilim. Nephilim were the giants said to walk the earth before the great flood.
The finger was said to have been hacked off with a hatchet post mortem, however, the skin has clearly dried and pulled back, suggesting it was separated from the body when the flesh was fresh. What do you think, real or fake. Sound off in the comments.
The Wyoming incident might have been a hoax, however, there was a very real pirate broadcast that happened in Chicago, back in 1987.
The first occurrence happened during the sports segment of WGN-TV Channel 9’s nightly news. The broadcast was cut in during the rundown of the Chicago bears, Detroit lion’s game when some static broke and a man in a Max Headroom mask came on the screen. It was brief, and there was no audio but it did get people’s attention.
Later that night, the highjacker broke into a broadcast of Dr. Who on WTTW, a PBS affiliate. This time there was audio and it was much longer.
The highjackers were never caught and I tend to agree with Max when he states that he created a giant masterpiece. I’m not a fan of performance art, but the cynical tone of this cryptic manifesto was delightful.
The Wyoming incident was the 2006 high jacking of a news station that broadcasted to all of Niobrara County in northeastern Wyoming. The transmit ion lasted just under six minutes, the footage showing disembodied heads making strange faces, cryptic text, and eerie music.
This incident might have come and gone, had it not been for complaints coming in from the people who witnessed the transmission. The claims of the effected were nausea, vomiting and headaches. Some even claimed to have hallucinations. The broadcast appeared to be causing these effects, as it was transmitted at 17 and 19 Hz, a frequency that is said to have similar effects on the senses.
The people who transmitted this broadcast have never been caught…and that’s because it was a hoax… to be more specific, it was a hoax that was an ARG. If you don’t know what an ARG is, it is basically a game that uses the Internet as a platform for a type of scavenger hunt.
If you want to know to know more about this Internet myth, I have included link to a statement by the creator in the info box. You can hear the makers of “The Wyoming Incident” explain themselves in their own words. Enjoy.
