I had no idea how long she had been standing there staring at me, but once I couldn't look away. She looked at me like crazy and waved her hand towards me, stroking the hair of a little boy's head. Her little boy, her son I imagine, wore loose brown clothes and a black goat mask. Was it a weird costume and especially who wears a costume the day after Halloween? He too was waving his hand in my direction and staring at me through that disturbing mask, but his movement seemed uncomfortable and forced. The woman's eyes could see right through me and I could almost physically feel her gaze catching on me. She wasn't even blinking. I felt naked and very tense. And the boy's eyes, my god, the boy's eyes were pleading and begging for help. The woman started to get impatient, waving her hand harder every second. I looked away. For some reason I was terrified. I needed to run away. Once the light went green, which had seemed like an eternity, I drove off. I didn't even bother to look behind. I thought nothing would be more terrifying than this moment. Then I got to school and they told me my son was not there. They told me that my wife had already collected it. I don't have a wife. They handed me a note, telling me that she had asked for them to give it to me. There are no words to describe how I felt reading it. "Don't say I didn't give you a chance to say goodbye to him. "

Less known, this time around, and older. In 1946, a very good Australian woman goes to visit her daughter's grave (yes, she's dead, it's not that the mother is ultra far-sighted).

In November 2011, passers-by found the body of a 23-year-old young woman slumped on a grave in the Val d'Oise. This grave is that of a friend of his, murdered with baseball bats two years earlier. The young woman also suffered enormous violence and her murder obviously took place in the cemetery.

30. When cemetery wardens discover a murder

A Reddit user says he worked in the 1970s alongside a friend of his in a cemetery to pay for his education.

Not at all faded, not at all withered. And after examination, it turned out that they were indeed real flowers.

34. The Perron family claimed that the reality was much more frightening than the movie

The real business of the Perron family began in 1971, when Roger and Carolyn decided to move into a former farmhouse they had just purchased in the state of Rhode Island. They arrive in their new home with their five daughters: Andrea, Nancy, Christine, Cindy and Avril. More than 40 years later, the movie Conjuring hits theaters, and Andrea Perron told reporters that no family member was scared watching the movie because the reality was so much scary horror story. Carolyn Perron, the mother, also said that the hide-and-seek scene was well done in the movie but far more terrifying in real life. She also refused to come on the film set (while her husband and her daughters went there), fearing that the spirits would attack her again.

35. The neighbors tried to warn the family of the danger

While no strange event had yet occurred, Carolyn Perron received strange advice from her neighbors. In particular, he was advised to leave the lights on at night and even to flee this place with his family. Soon after, objects began to move for no good reason.

36. At first the spirits seemed harmless

According to their testimony, the children of the Perron family quickly felt a presence in the house but the girls were not frightened because this presence did not seem threatening. Apparently these ghosts spoke to them and kissed them on the forehead before they fell asleep. Frankly, I would have been terrified for much less than that.

37. Other spirits, less sympathetic, arrived later

As time went by, new spirits came to replace the gentle ghosts. According to the Perron children, that's when they started to get really scared. The spirits told them of the bodies of soldiers who would be walled up in the house. Some nights, always at the same time, a smell of burning flesh was felt in the house, waking the whole family. What seems to have traumatized the five little girls the most is the mind of a malicious man. They never wanted to give more details about what this presence did to them.

38. One of the children ended up locked in a trunk

One day, while the five girls are playing hide and seek, one of them decides to hide in a trunk that had no lock or particular closure (a simple trunk with the lid lifted). As no one finds her, the little girl decides to go out, but she realizes that it is impossible: the cover no longer lifts and the child is stuck inside the trunk. It was not until 20 minutes later that, alerted by the screams, one of the sisters arrived to rescue the little girl by simply lifting the lid. No one has ever solved this mystery.

39. The family stayed in the house for 9 years without being able to leave

In the movie Conjuring, the Warrens explain to the Perron family that it is useless to leave the house because the spirits have chosen to persecute them. In reality, the reason that forced the family to stay so long was simply financial. In the 1970s in the United States, between the government of Nixon and that of Carter, the economic crisis affected many families. In addition, the value of the Perron house is devalued every day because of the strange events that take place there. Result: nobody wants to buy this house and the Perrons do not have the means to live elsewhere with their five children. It was not until 1980 that they finally left this cursed place to go and live in Georgia.

40. Carolyn Perron actually saw a woman yelling at her in the middle of the night

One day, as she was going to bed, Carolyn saw a woman in a gray dress appear near her bed. The woman reportedly shouted at him "Go away or I will scare you away with death and darkness" (rough translation). After much research on the former inhabitants of the house, the Warrens and Perrons concluded that it was probably the ghost of a certain Bathsheba Thayer but it is obviously impossible to prove it.

41. Bathsheba Thayer was not a witch at all

In the movie Conjuring, the woman who appears in the house and ends up owning Carolyn Perron is portrayed as a witch who allegedly sacrificed her child to the devil before committing suicide. Actually, Bathsheba Thayer did exist but she never practiced witchcraft or anything close to it. She was a normal woman who lived in the 19th century with her husband. Three of her four children died very young but there is no mention of murder or suicide in the archives. Bathsheba Thayer died in 1885 of a heart attack.

42. Friends of the family contacted the Warrens

The Perrons never contacted Ed and Lorraine Warren, it was the Warrens who came to them. Friends of the Perron family actually attended a conference hosted by the Warrens in Connecticut and got to chat with the couple. They then talked about the strange events that had occurred in their friends' house and the Warrens replied: "We absolutely have to go and see."

43. The Warrens may have made it worse

Strangely, the Perron family's version of the facts and that of the Warren couple do not always coincide. Parts of the story are sometimes incomplete or slightly different. The movie Conjuring was primarily written based on the Warrens' version of events, the one where the couple manages to get rid of spirits. Unfortunately, that may not be the truth. According to the Perrons, the Warrens never really got rid of spirits, and the spirits remained in haunting them for years after they left home.

44. The real corpse in the fake haunted house

We all had this thought at 10 years old: “Can you imagine if the model, there, and well in fact, and well it would in fact be a real death? And bah in 1976, an American TV crew filming an episode in a haunted house in an amusement park in California had the answer. During the filming, a hanged man's mannequin lost an arm in which human bones were found. In reality, the body was that of a criminal, Elem McCurdy, murdered in 1911 after a train attack by a bounty hunter. The local undertaker had then embalmed it and kept it as a demonstration product because it was so well done. Until one day McCurdy's pseudo-brother came to claim the body. The pseudo-brother was actually a showman who had made the body a major part of his haunted house show.

45. The guy buried alive

"Can you imagine, in fact, you're not dead, but the doctor and well the doctor are wrong, and you find yourself buried alive?" Oh the seum! " It has happened many times. A guy called William Tebb recorded more than 200 such cases in recent history at the end of the 19th century. Recent history at the time, that is to say at the end of the 19th century. Afterwards, we sometimes found traces of scratches inside the coffins, which is never a good sign on the last moments offered to the world to the dead. A fashion developed in the early twentieth century: secure coffins, including some kind of horn or a powerful bell to signal that one was not dead (just in case).

46. The girl is stabbed in a discretionary library and nobody sees anything

You see it, eh, the American library with its green lamps, its endless passageways, its secluded places, its silence: a perfect place to fuck or to die stabbed by a maniac unleashed on campus. And bah in 1969, the student Betsy Aardsma was stabbed while she was consulting a book in one of the bays. Nobody saw anything, nobody heard anything. The killer was never discovered.

47. The killer who lived in hiding for several days in the house before killing the whole family

The house could well be haunted. We hear footsteps, we see things that disappear, we end up murdered by a maniac. In 1922, farmer Andreas Gruber and his family experienced exactly that. There were steps in the attic. Weird, did you say weird? Okay. The Grubers did not pick up. Then, on March 31, they were all killed with an ax: mother, father, children, grandchildren. But not the animals. We never found the murderer.

48. The manic surgeon

Under the guise of his long studies of medicine, the surgeon is in fact a maniac who operates on his victims with the sole and sole objective of collecting their organs. Yes it's possible. For example, that pretty much describes the surgeon Glen Tucker, who in the 1970s amused himself amputating arms for fun or doing square breast implants. One day a patient woke up in the middle of her nose job, which was broken, to see dear Doctor Tucker doing sadistic things with his nose in a deserted operating room. She complained and Tucker started following her down the street. Then Tucker had the good taste to die in a boating accident in 1982, or rather to pretend, since he was found in Florida a few years later. Rather than being tried, he committed suicide in 2011. After killing his wife and her cat.

49. Your ex cooks you a dog

"It would be horrible for a sadistic cook to make me eat Cookie Stew" (Cookie is the Gloden Retriever who shares your life). Yes. And bah Ryan Watenpaugh, after having freaked out his ex-girlfriend by forcing the door to his apartment, did something like that. When the girl in question escaped, he was left alone with the dog and later pretended that he had escaped. Then Cookie's mistress was stupid enough to accept an invitation to dinner and Wantenpaugh made her a nice little meal. Then he sent sadistic texts to the girl explaining that she had just eaten her dog. And also a plastic bag with the remains to prove that it was true.

50. Telephone. Midnight. "I see you"

We take the beginning of Scream . We transpose it into real life. A little English teenager from Chester in 2014 began to receive texts that she was being watched very closely by someone "in her house". The girl was not too careful, telling herself that she was dealing with a dingo, then lay down (anyway) in her mother's bed. Then she returned to her room in the middle of the night and, seeing that some stuff had been moved, looked under the bed. Where she found her stalker, an 18 year old kid. Fortunately, nothing happened to this poor little teenager.

51. The Legend of Charlie No-Face

It's a local story, but worth the detour. Charlie No Face was a character in popular culture around Pittsburgh, a sort of White Lady aimed at terrifying children. Except that in reality, Charlie existed. His real name was Raymond Robinson and he was disfigured by a maxi-shock in 1919 while playing near an electric conveyor. Then, Raymond Robinson lived a small life of patachon all alone by remaining cloistered in his home for fear of being judged. He would not allow himself to go out until nightfall. You kinda see how the guy became an urban legend.

52. Waking up with one missing kidney

1: take a load; 2: agree to get into a stranger's car; 3: wake up far from home, naked, with one kidney less and an extra scar. And bah know that it is a little possible: between 2000 and 2008, 500 Indians were the victims of illegal kidney trafficking. They were spotted in the street, not because they were drunk, but because they were looking for work and offered to them for bogus. Then chloroform, boom and more kidney.

53. The collector of human bodies

The super weird neighbor collects corpses, it is well known. Why else would he have so many papier mache dolls? Well done, Edvige. For example, the Moscow historian Anatoly Moskvin, who freaked out all the children in the neighborhood, was indeed responsible for the dead bodies in the Nizhny Novgorod cemetery. So Moskvin would collect the corpses, put on them girls' dresses and wigs, and arrange them in the apartment. There were 29 of them. With masks. And all. And all.

54. The murder of the Lawson family

We are in 1929, a time when, contrary to popular belief, people did not live in black and white. On Christmas Eve, Charlie Lawson, 43, a farmer from North Carolina, takes his family to town to take a picture and shop for clothes. The kind of activity that is quite unusual for a large family of farmers without a circle. There was his wife and their seven children there. The next day, December 25, Charlie waits for his two daughters to come out of the house to shoot them before hitting them badly. He then returns home and shoots another of his daughters who was on the steps. Then he walks into the house and kills everyone: his wife, his two boys and his little baby. He then heads for the woods and shoots himself in the head. The only survivor of the killing is the 16-year-old eldest, One of the theories that can explain the massacre is that the father allegedly got his daughter pregnant and found no other way out. Atmosphere atmosphere and Merry Christmas.

55. The Covina massacre

In 2008, the divorce between Bruce and Sylvia Pardo was confirmed. But as often during separations by mutual agreement, someone agrees more than the other: in this case, Bruce is not very satisfied with the situation. So he decides to hurt his ex-wife and his whole family. He takes the car and arrives at Sylvia's parents in Covina, California on Christmas Day. He rings the bell, disguised as Santa Claus, and Sylvia's niece lets him in. Especially since he has gifts in his hands! Except that the packaging actually contains a flamethrower and guns. Pardo begins by shooting everyone until the whole family is forced to hide. It was then that he poured gasoline all over the ground before using the flamethrower. He kills nine people including his ex-wife.

56. The corpse at the foot of the tree

In 2011, Michelle O'Dowd showed a beautiful Christmas spirit by offering her nephew's ex-girlfriend, Patty White, to come and live with her in exchange for a little cleaning. Except that a few days before Christmas, Michelle O'Dowd does not come to work without warning. Her twin brother is worried and goes to her house. His car is there, the house seems inhabited, but no trace of his sister. Ah yes in fact: his foot protrudes from the gifts piled up at the foot of the Christmas tree. Her protégé, Patty, hit and strangled her before leaving the body in place and fleeing the state. She was eventually arrested.

57. Christmas must go on

Justin Lee Klopp and his wife had the good idea of arguing on Christmas Day. Apparently, Klopp wasn't a guy it felt good to disagree with, compared to the fact that, to settle the brawl, he grabbed an ax and just smashed his wife, Stephanie. Before slitting his throat to be sure he had succeeded. Then he put the body in a plastic bag that he threw in the trash, before waking up his two children to go and celebrate Christmas with his parents. It was during the meal, which we imagine SUPER FRIENDLY, that Klopp decided to call the cops to confess his crime. Klopp hanged himself in prison.

58. The Ashland Tragedy

On December 23, 1881, three teenagers aged 14 to 17 were sleeping lazily, impatiently awaiting the next day's party. At that time, three people entered the Gibbon house to murder them using an ax and an iron bar. After the children died, the three people in question decided that the best thing was to burn the house to ashes. Neighbors were alarmed to see a fire and called the fire department. We found the kids, their heads shattered, among the debris. Ah, and among the teenagers there were two girls who were also raped. The three attackers were found, tried, and hanged.

59. The nice Christmas present

Alexis Valdez was living with his aunt in 2011 when he argued with her aunt's guy, Silvestre (who was called himself after Grosminet, let us note), who reproached him for not contributing to the rent. Alexis did not take reproaches. Suddenly, he took a hammer and smashed Silvestre's head, before turning on the music to be able to cuddle and in disorder: the enucleate, cut off his head and a few other things like the nose or the ears. Then he wrapped the head and left it on his aunt's pillow as a Christmas present. The police found him covered in blood. Valdez explained that, if his aunt had been present, she would have suffered the same fate.

60. The massacre of the Yazdanpanah family

Also in 2011, in Texas this time, we celebrated Christmas at the Yazdanpanah. It was time for the great unpacking of gifts. Suddenly, there is a knock on the door: it's the father, Aziz, disguised as Santa Claus. Of course, that annoys everyone; besides, her niece, Sahra, sends a text to her boyfriend: "There you go, he's trying to play the ideal father when he's never there." Error buzzer, Sahra, wrong answer. Aziz pulls out a gun and kills everyone: his ex-wife, Fatemeh, as well as his son and daughter, Fatehemeh's sister, her husband and therefore Sahra, their 22-year-old daughter. Then he kills himself. 7 dead, found among the gifts a few hours later.

61. The disappearance of JonBenet Ramsey

6-year-old Little Miss Sunshine, JonBenet Ramsay disappears at the end of December 1996 in Colorado. The mother of the little one indicates that a demand for ransom has been sent to the family. Except that, during the beatings, the father of the little one ends up discovering his corpse in the basement of the house. JonBenet was strangled and hit on the head. It is December 25th. The family was suspected for a time, then cleared of all suspicion. It is not known who committed the crime. Merry Christmas to everyone.

62. The Good Samaritan and the Good Samaritan

Young actress Tricia McCauley was supposed to spend Christmas 2016 with her pals. On the road, she meets a hitchhiker and stops. After all, it is the spirit of Christmas to help each other. Imagine Tricia as some kind of perfect, talented, vegan girl and all, eh, that's important for the future. Because Tricia never makes it to Christmas dinner. On the other hand, she uses her credit card a lot of times to make large withdrawals. On December 27, we find his body rolled up in a ball in his car. Tricia was raped, beaten and strangled. The hitchhiker, Duane Johnson, is found shortly after. And there, he explains that in reality he just helped Tricia kill herself because she really wanted to. And that he didn't rape her since she agreed. In short, a simple Christmas present, a service rendered in turn to a good Samaritan woman.

63. The date gone wrong

December 2015. Katie Locke, a 23-year-old teacher, has a date with Carld Langdell, a lawyer she knew on a dating site. The evening is going well. So much so that they decide to go together to a very nice hotel in London, the Theobalds Park Hotel. Except that Langdell strangles Katie in the bedroom, before raping her post mortem. Then he wraps his corpse in a quilt which he throws in the thickets. Katie's corpse is found on Christmas Day. Ah, Langdell had had a short stay in a mental hospital, during which he explained to a nurse that he fantasized about slitting a girl's throat. He was sentenced to life imprisonment.

64. The haunted stone

This Inca legend tells the story of Túpac Yupanqui, son of the sun, who liked to party after winning a battle. One day when he was putting down a rebellion, he had a pretty little captive handed over to her to rape her in a cool way. Except that the prisoner already had a lover and did not have a mad desire to be raped. At night, she runs away with the guy she's in love with and the two get caught up. Tupac set them on fire. Since then, a stone has been found there, the shape of which is exactly similar to the girl's body. You should not go there at night, for fear of being tormented by the spirit of the haunted stone.

65. The mourner

The legend dates back to the 16th century. In Tenochtilan, Mexico, locals roamed their homes at night, so as not to be tormented by the spirit of a woman wandering the streets in tears. The mourning woman wandered around the city, before stopping in the central square to pray. Every night, the woman disappeared around Lake Texcoco. Those who dared to approach him disappeared in troubled circumstances. The legend has variations throughout the entire South American territory.

66. El chupacabra

Literally the goat sucker. A strange being from Puerto Rico who eats animals, or rather the blood of animals, vampire style. Apparently, there is evidence of a kind of biped that would attack at night and never leave a trail. The animal was supposedly seen all over South America: legend has it that it was of extraterrestrial origin or that it was the result of failed scientific experimentation.

67. La Tunda

This legend of the Colombian Pacific coast evokes a mysterious, semi-monstrous woman who would lure the locals into the jungle to keep them prisoners and kill them. She disguises herself as a loved one of her victim before making him swallow poisonous langoustines which force him to remain eternally in a state of trance. It mainly attacks children.

68. El Imbunche

A small Chilean child entrusted to wizards and become monstrous. His face is fixed to the back of his head, his fingers and ears are hooked. El Imbuche imitates animal sounds and practices black magic. It feeds on fresh meat.

69. The penitent

A little old woman who takes taxis in Mexico to get to church. She asks the taxi to wait for her, goes to the church, comes back and asks to go to another church. From church to church, the taxi driver finally brings the old woman home: as payment, she gives the driver a ring, asking him to come back the next day to get his money. The next day, when the driver returns, he is told that the old woman in question has been dead for several years.

70. La Cegua

A supernatural being who pursues and punishes unfaithful and / or picolos men. It would be the spirit of a young Costa Rican condemned to wander on deserted roads and seduce men: she gets caught hitchhiking, lets herself be flirted a little, then trades her pretty face for a dead horse's head with rotting skin hanging down all over the place. There, generally, the men shout.

71. The whistler

You have to be careful in the Venezuelan jungle at night. We might well come across the whistler, a 6-meter tall giant that moves as discreetly as an ant and chooses its victims from among the stray walkers. To find out he's around, it's simple: he whistles non-stop and his huge bag contains the clashing bones of his victims. He sucks the blood of drunkards and flirtatious people who return home after a good night's sleep.

72. El Pombero

This Paraguayan legend relates to a little elf, Pomberito, who is rather nice with the peasants to whom he agrees to render services by, in return, receiving offerings every night for 30 days. But if a peasant forgets to make the offering, he runs the risk of not very cool reprimands, such as death, for example.

73. The ramp house

In Mexico, an abandoned and half-built house borders the feet of a mountain. The house has ramps and is said to have been built for a little girl in a wheelchair. This little girl would have died falling from the second floor, paving the way for a long series of accidents and deaths of all kinds: two workers died during the construction of the house. At night, you would hear screams in the house and see silhouettes.

74. The family scammed for over twenty years

An American knew that her parents had been victims of identity theft twenty years before realizing she too. She figured out that the person who had done that at the time had probably recovered her identity at the same time, and either way she was right. After the death of her mother, she discovers with her father that in reality it was the late mother from the beginning. Indeed this one had made a credit card in the name of his daughter. Together they went back over twenty years of frauds and realized that she had also scammed the grandfather for $ 1,500. We obviously do not take everything to the grave.

75. The Lille student registered at the Banque de France

It all starts the day Maya, a 20-year-old student, has her wallet stolen in the metro. Some time later she realizes that three loans have been taken in her name and that a loss of 59,600 € means that she will become stuck in the Bank of France and banned from banking. The discovery of unpaid train fines as well as other debts in her name follows, which plunges her into a hell of administrative procedures to prove her innocence. And it's still very loaf to have to proclaim your innocence all the time because of a nice scam.

76. The woman who begins to suspect her husband of leading a double life

In 2008, a Franco-Turkish couple living in Orléans began to receive mortgage payments for purchases and loans they had not made. The wife even goes so far as to imagine a double life for her husband on the move. It is precisely the wife who will conduct an investigation which "would make the private detectives pale" as the representative of the public prosecutor pointed out during the hearing. She will trace all the information and find that her husband's identity has been sold on a network and bought by a Turkish national living quietly in the city of Caen. She now calls herself Sherlock Holmes. No that's wrong, but she could.

77. The man whose identity has been stolen for 17 years

In 2004, Loïc received a phone call from a bank branch in Toulouse (a city he did not live in) which informed him that his accounts had been transferred. Not being at the origin of the action, an investigation is opened and we find a total of five people who pretended to be him. For 17 years, he constantly dealt with bailiffs, administrations and banks. In total, 17 bank accounts, problems with CAF and social security, ten telephone lines, various consumer credits were reported. Today he has a psychiatric follow-up and is under medication. At the time, he was forced to stop studying law and political science.

78. The Australian woman who got involved in a murder

We arrive on the heavy. An Australian woman living in Israel who is 6 months pregnant learns over the radio that she is wanted for the murder of Hamas leader Mahmoud Al-Mabhouh. She realizes that three Australians (including her) had their identities usurped in this affair and that false passports (including one in her name) have been found. So she freaked out but in the end we quickly understand the scam and she is not worried.

79. The mother who had only guaranteed the rental of her son

When she sends the file for the rental of her son's apartment, this woman is far from suspecting the various scams that will follow. She first receives a file for the purchase of automobile insurance. She contacts the mentioned mechanic and realizes that someone has bought a used vehicle in her name. A few days later a credit organization tries to withdraw € 300 from his account. History repeats itself three times, three vehicles purchased, three different credit organizations. It's just the horror for the poor lady whose case is still pending.

80. The student who has been declared a child

Then 25 years old, a student of Congolese origin holding a master's degree learns that it is forbidden to issue checks following an incident on a new account. He goes to the agency and learns that a client has usurped his identity. He files three complaints without anything moving forward. A judge finally gives an order dismissing his complaints. He later learns that his usurper has been convicted of forgery and forgery in the Congo and returns to the police station where he is offered to "negotiate with his usurper" (nice). One day, he discovers that a little girl is declared dependent on him, even though he has no children. Finally confused with the con artist, he was even taken into custody before the court understood his mistake.

81. The employee of the fraud department who messed around a bit

An American IRS (Internal Revenue Service) has spent years helping people who are victims of fraud. In reality, she was stealing their identities in order to defraud herself. For over three years she used IRS computers to retrieve people's data (names / dates of birth / social security numbers) in order to defraud reimbursement services. In all, she raised nearly $ 400,000 before being arrested and sentenced to nine years in prison.

82. My parents' note that I forged not to go to class

I was in 4th and I'm not very proud of this anecdote. I had forged my father's signature so as not to go to sports class on a Friday afternoon. Everyone saw nothing but an old-fashioned old cop who didn't get it and checked every apology. He worked for years on the “4th D apology affair” in order to corner me and he finally got there over twelve years later. Today I write this top from my cell, consumed by remorse. DON'T FRAUD.

83. Lost, or prisoner

This feeling, in a dream, refers directly to the perception that we have of reality in relation to the path to take, in any field whatsoever. The feeling of being out of options or having too many options can create a stress that must be identified in order to get rid of these nightmares. Without a suitable response, this nightmare is often the first step before moving on to the next ones.

84. In free fall, or drowned

This sensation usually occurs in a context of overwork. The stress is then “internalized” and accumulated to take the form of this nightmare. It is precisely the reactions you will have during this fall that will translate your way of seeing the problems in reality.

85. A machine or a phone that does not work

Unless you have experienced these worries too often with technology, this type of nightmare can turn out to be symptomatic of a feeling of loss: the estrangement of a loved one, physical or emotional, or the feeling of having without the wanting to erect a barrier with his entourage. If this nightmare is recurring, ask yourself about the relationship you have with your "friends" and if you haven't let it all rot a bit.

86. Naked in a public place

Getting naked by accident is a fairly clear representation of secrets that we do not want to reveal. The difficulty of "getting naked" literally shows itself in nightmares, and the awkward feeling you experience in your dreams must be a little like the one you fear if more is learned about you. You may need to assume a little more who you are and to relativize the judgment of others, you will live the better.

87. Natural or man-made disaster

This type of nightmare is often fraught with meaning: a disaster dream would refer to an imminent "disaster" in reality. It is therefore important to identify what, in our dream, makes us helpless and to try to determine which event of our reality plunges us into this state and constitutes a source of stress sometimes unconscious.

88. A failed exam

The first relationship we have with a possible failure haunts us long after the end of our schooling. This fear of being evaluated illustrates the feeling of deserving or not what one has. If we did an objective review of what you have achieved in your life, would you be satisfied? If you dreamed of a copy of immaculate whiteness, it might not be.

89. The loss or destruction of his house

A house illustrates the dichotomy between the desire to preserve what we have inside and the image and solidity that we show on the outside. Your home is you. If your nightmare shows destruction or theft inside this house, in the privacy of your walls, this should be understood as a feeling of betrayal, or a fear of being manipulated.

90. Car breakdown

As with the house, the vehicle you are in symbolizes your own body. The car shows an impeccable exterior appearance when the mechanics stop, you have to understand this image as the difference in perception that we have on the outside and inside. Heading straight for a crash betrays a feeling of weakness or lack of control over one's own life.

91. Injury, illness or death

Beyond this belief which wants that "if one dies in a dream, one dies in reality", it is necessary to relativize the gravity of this kind of vision: certainly, this morbid appearance in dreams can be compared to the report that we have death, when it concerns a loved one for example. But sometimes it is lighter, and this death can illustrate a change in his own life, which implies a new era. New job, stop smoking, buy a hybrid car, you kill the old "you" to be reborn in a Prius.

92. Prosecuted or attacked

If it is universally shared, it is because this dream appeals to an instinct to flee from what, it seems, is stronger than us. According to Freud, this dream manifests the anxiety of the individual, whatever the seriousness of this concern. We think we can deal with these little worries, your nightmares show you not, and that you have to face them. Little more: if the pursuer has a knife or a long object, it is certainly a sexual representation, which you flee or to which you want to give in with guilt.

93. The Banshee

When we see a messenger from the other world disembark, we don't expect her to tell us a Belgian joke, in general, it is to announce an imminent death. It's a bit like the White Lady of the corner. Afterwards, depending on the region, she acts as a mourner, a crier or she washes the dead. Anyway, she doesn't have a very funky job.

94. The Merrow

Merrow is the Gaelic equivalent of a mermaid. There are female Merrows but also males. The former are beautiful, like the classic mermaids. The second on the other hand are simply disgusting (pointed teeth, green hair, and very ugly, in short the lookalikes of the singer of the Pogues ). Besides their beauty, the female Merrows are no less beautiful whores who hate humans and do not hesitate to do dirty things to them. Usually seeing one was not considered a good sign. In fact most of the time that meant that we were either going to clamor pretty quickly, or suffer a good little family curse.

95. The Puck

As if "The Puck" weren't ugly enough, this creature is also adorned with nicknames as ridiculous as the nickname itself: "Jack with the lantern", "Will with the twist", or "Robin Good friend ". The Puck is a leprechaun who has the power to transform into an animal and who likes to play pranks. One of his favorite valves, for example, is pushing old ladies, and it's true that it's really fun, you should give it a try. Most of the time he uses his ability to transform into a black horse with fiery yellow eyes, an appearance he uses to freak out the villagers. We're not sure that's how he'll be able to make friends, but that doesn't seem to bother him too much.

96. Fir Darrig

It looks like a Leprechaun, with one little more characteristic: it becomes encrusted. He arrives at your house, takes the best seat by the fire and starts to dry his filthy clothes in your living room. If you don't comply, he'll piss you off. A kind of Michel Blanc in "Come home, I live with a friend" , but super nasty.

97. The Dullahan

These headless horsemen are a curious bunch. Capable of beheading themselves to mess around and to play bowls with their skulls, the Dullahan fear gold more than anything. So keep a coin on you (next to the garlic for vampires) to keep them away. Because know it, you shouldn't piss them off too much: they have a human spine as a whip and when they stop their horse, they cry out a name, and the person passes the weapon to the left immediately.

98. The Grogoch

Yes, "The", because this human-looking creature wouldn't have a female. So they live between guys in tiny and precarious huts, a cave or a hole doing the trick, they are a little dirty, but apparently very nice. A bit like our computer science students. The Grogoch will not hesitate, from time to time, to give a little help, in return for a pot of cream as remuneration. Last tip: he is very afraid of priests and he can, if necessary, make himself invisible. It is a superpower like any other.

99. inn Mac Cumaill

Finn is a warrior with universal knowledge. Already said like that, it imposes it. On the other hand, the way he got it is pretty lame. To be honest, he spent 7 years trying to catch a salmon with universal knowledge, and once he got there, he cooked it to peck it, so far so good. Except that during this cooking the juice of the salmon sprinkled his thumb. So every time he sucks his thumb he has access to universal knowledge (it's really practical in interrogation ...). And yes, this legend is one of the most nazi in the history of legends. According to this same legend Finn is not dead, he is just sleeping and will wake up to protect Ireland when needed. For now the English and Thierry Henry sleep soundly, but you never know.

100. Les Cluricaunes

An umpteenth derivative of Leprechaun but in a drunken version. If you behave well they will protect your wine cellar, but if you mess around they will empty your barrels and let your wine rot.

Erdogan points the finger at Sweden: "Do what we said"

 Recep Tayyip Erdoğan "diagnosed" that Sweden is not keeping the agreed terms for joining NATO and pointed the finger at it.

Lest there be any doubt that Turkey is monitoring Sweden and Finland's process of "compliance" with the requirements for their entry into NATO, Recep Tayyip Erdogan sent his own message.

After the meeting of the Turkish cabinet on Monday, the Turkish president lashed out at Sweden, saying that at any moment Turkey can block the process.

"I would once again like to remind you that we will freeze the process if these countries do not take the necessary steps to fulfill our conditions. Sweden does not give a good image in this regard, especially with statements related to the opposition .. Our position is clear, the rest they know themselves," Erdogan said in a rather threatening tone.

Turkey, among others, has demanded the extradition of more than 70 Swedish citizens of Kurdish origin , including MP Amine Kakabave.

Speaking, finally, about the economic hardship in Turkey, Erdogan once again wanted to present a completely different, "idyllic" image.

"In the last 20 years the number of vehicles on our roads has tripled, we now have 26 million cars. People are finding it difficult to find cars to buy. We know very well the insidious intentions behind the slander and lies," he underlined.

4 Mysterious and Cursed Books That Have Puzzled Us for a Long Time

4 Mysterious and Cursed Books That Have Puzzled Us for a Long Time

The most mysterious books in history are part of our fascination with the forbidden: find out what they are and what they contain. History is full of mysterious books of unknown origin , whose forbidden content is related to sinister events. Fictional specimens likeThe Necronomicon, by HP Lovecraft , or medieval books to consult supernatural entities are some of the so-called cursed books in history. However, there are more that are surrounded by an aura of mystery that fascinates us. Meet the other most mysterious books in history.

Soya's Book
Also know asAldaraia sive Soyga vocor, is a hidden text dating back to at least the 16th century. This book has become famous because it was owned by John Dee , a famous 16th-century occultist and polymath whose fields of study and expertise included mathematics, physics, chemistry, and astronomy.

Dee believed that the book “contained an ancient, even divine, message written in the language originally spoken to Adam; in other words, the true and untouched word of God .”

Dee believed that it was possible for human beings to communicate with angels, which is why the book was of such interest to him, as it includes the names and genealogies of these beings.

John Dee used Edward Kelley, an occult specialist, to unravel the book's contents and make contact with angels. It is said that through Kelley, Dee was able to speak with the Archangel Uriel, who revealed to her that he would live to be over 100 years old. In reality, Dee only lived to be 81.

Abramelin's Book
TheBook of Abramelin, formally calledThe Book of Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Magician, is a Jewish magical text believed to date from the 14th or 15th century. It owes its fame to the 19th and 20th century wizards who formed the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn.

The text is supposed to have the power to bring the reader into contact with their Guardian Angel. After three days of this coexistence, the angelic entity will help the reader to fight a series of demons.

According to occult writer Lon Milo DuQuette , the Abremelin's reputation as a cursed book may stem from the fact that it contains instructions for defeating "the evil spirits of the world."

One of the founders of the Order, SLM Mathers, made the first English translation of the book in the 1890s, from a French version of 1750. This causedThe Book of Abramelin, or simply "theAbramelin“, became a key text of modern occultism , which was even of great influence for the occultist Aleister Crowley.

Orphan Story
It is one of the most mysterious books in history. It is supposed to have been written by a Spanish monk named Martín de León y Cárdenas between 1608 and 1615. The religious originally planned its publication in 1621 under the pseudonym Andrés de León , but that never happened, as he feared that its publication would harm his good reputation. name in the catholic church.

The story tells of the adventures of a young Augustinian friar who travels between Spain, Italy and Peru. In these adventures worthy of an adventure novel, we see how he goes from monk to soldier, from peaceful man to brawler and more.

The volume remained lost for several years until in 1965 a Spanish scholar found a surviving copy in the New York archives of theHispanic Society of America. From that moment on, several attempts were made to publish it, but all the projects failed, since those involved died in a mysterious way.

Finally, in 2017 it was published and in this way the supposed curse that weighed on the work was broken.

Written in Blood
It is a book written by Robert and Nancy Heinl in 1978. He was a retired Marine Corps colonel who served as a defense adviser to the Haitian government. His wife was a journalist born in London. Both lived in Haiti for several years until they were expelled from the country in 1963 as relations between the United States and Haiti deteriorated.

Heinl was declared persona non grata due to political differences between the United States and the president of Haiti, François Duvalier, however, that was not the most controversial part of the case. According toWashington PostNancy Heinl “became so immersed in voodoo beliefs” that Duvalier was convinced she was a priestess with mystical powers.

Duvalier died in 1971, seven years before the Heinls' book was published. However, according to Vikas Khatri's 2007 bookCurses & JinxesDuvalier's widow, Simone, took offense at the unflattering depiction of the late leader in Written in Blood and placed a voodoo curse on the book.

From there, various events occurred to the book. The manuscript was lost in the printing press and was stolen when it was being sent to the publisher. When it was finally sent for binding, the folding machine malfunctioned. Apparently, the curse extended to the publicity campaign of the book: the reporter of theWashington Postwho was assigned coverage was attacked by appendicitis.

In the case of the Heinls, they claimed that at home all their non-electric clocks stopped. Robert was injured when a stage collapsed under him while he was making a speech. A few days later he was attacked by a dog while walking near his house. In May 1979, while the Heinls were vacationing in the French West Indies, Robert Heinl died suddenly of a heart attack.

If the Heinls were the victims of a voodoo curse, then this was not the first time the Duvalier family had turned to black magic to exact revenge on their enemies. Duvalier himself claimed that the assassination of John F. Kennedy Jr. in November 1963 was the result of a voodoo curse he had placed on him after the young president had suspended aid to Haiti the previous year on suspicion of financial mismanagement. by Duvalier.

Croatia: A devastating fire has reduced 33,000 hectares to ashes

Investigations to determine the cause of the fire, which burned about 33,000 hectares in central Croatia.

About 33,000 hectares have been reduced to ashes by a large forest fire in central Croatia, according to government sources.

The fire front has been brought under control in Sibenik-Knin County, but 330 firefighters remain on alert for the risk of flare-ups, said the head of the Civil Protection Directorate, Damir Trout, adding that an investigation is underway to determine the cause of the fire.

Meanwhile, local authorities are calling for the region to be declared a state of emergency in order to secure additional financial resources for the relief of fire victims who lost homes and property.

According to APE-MPE, Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic pledged today that the government will assess the damage and immediately support the affected areas.

US: Second "yes" from the House on the amendment to "block" the sale of F-16 to Turkey


The amendment banning the sale of new F-16s to Turkey has "passed" after the appropriate committee and the full session of the US House of Representatives, raising the possibility that it will become law by the end of the year. What does it say?

An amendment banning the sale of new F-16s, modernization kits or upgraded technology to Turkey was also passed by the plenary session of the House of Representatives.

The amendment was upvoted a few days ago by the competent committee of the US House.

However, it leaves open a window that allows the president to override the restrictions if he certifies to Congress that doing so is in the vital national security interest of the U.S. and details the steps being taken to ensure that the F-16s do not are used for overflights over Greece.

Specifically, the amendment, which will be included in the budget of the US Department of Defense, states the following:

The (U.S.) President may not sell or authorize the export of new F-16 aircraft or F-16 upgrade technology or modernization kits under any authority under the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2751 et seq. e.) to the government of Turkey or any agency or agency of Turkey, unless the (US) President provides to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and the Congressional Defense Committees that:

This transfer is in the national interest of the United States and details the specific measures taken to ensure that such F-16s are not used by Turkey for repeated unauthorized overflights over Greece.

The two amendments were filed by Reps. Chris Pappas and Frank Pallon. In a joint letter, the Hellenic American Leadership Council and the American Jewish Committee asked American lawmakers to support the said amendment.

"Turkish violations of Greek airspace and armed overflights over Aegean islands have reached dangerous levels, creating a real threat to peace and stability in the region," the letter said.

It was preceded by the hard-hitting announcement by Republican congressmen Gus Bilirakis and Nicole Maliotakis: It is shocking that President Biden supported the sale of US F-16 fighter jets and modernization kits to Turkey, while he had recently heard first-hand the concerns about Turkish aggression by Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis during his visit to Washington.

Italy: Mattarella did not accept Draghi's resignation - A new vote of confidence will be requested

"Thriller" in Italy, with the President of the Republic not accepting Mario Draghi's resignation from the Prime Ministership. He asks him to address Parliament.

After the announcement of his resignation, the Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi returned to the Cardinal Palace, to officially announce the president of the republic, Sergio Mattarella, his decision.

The Italian president, however, did not accept the resignation and asked Draghi to appear before the parliament, to ascertain whether he has the confidence of the parliament.

Next Wednesday, Draghi will address the House and the Senate, after which a new vote of confidence is expected.

The Italian prime minister earlier met with Sergio Mattarella, where Mario Draghi, according to analysts, expressed to the President his desire to resign, with Mattarella trying to dissuade him.

After this meeting, the Italian prime minister convened a cabinet and announced to its members his decision to resign.

In an official announcement by the Italian government, the statement of the Italian Prime Minister is reproduced, who said:

"I want to announce to you that tonight I am going to submit my resignation to the president of the Republic. Today's votes in the parliament are a very important event from a political point of view. The relationship of trust that forms the basis of government action no longer exists. The majority of national unity which supported this government from the first day of its creation is no more.

During these days, I made the maximum effort to continue the common course, trying to satisfy the requests made to me by the political forces. But it is clear from the political debate and from today's vote in Parliament that this effort was not enough."

Draghi recalled that he would continue as prime minister "only if there was a prospect of implementing the government program for which he had received the initial vote of confidence."

Ivana Trump: Donald Trump's ex-wife has died

The former president of the United States, Donald Trump, announced a while ago that his first wife, Ivana, has died.

Former US President Ivana Trump's first wife has died aged 73.

"It is with great sadness that I inform all those who loved her, of which there are many, that Ivana Trump has passed away at her home in New York," Donald Trump said in a message on the social media platform Truth Social.

"Our mother was an amazing woman, dynamic in business, accomplished athlete and caring mother and friend," her family said in a statement. "Ivana Trump was a fighter. She escaped communism and embraced this country. She taught her children strength, compassion and determination. She will be greatly missed by her mother, her three children and ten grandchildren," the statement concluded. of the family.

Ivana Trump was the first wife of Donald Trump. Together they had three children, Donald Jr., Ivanka and Eric Trump. They divorced in 1992.

He was born on February 20, 1949 in the former Czechoslovakia. She moved to Canada in the 1970s and then to the United States, where she married Donald Trump in 1977.

Spain: They tied the hands of a pregnant woman and performed a caesarean without her consent

A UN commission is calling on Spain to pay compensation to a woman who underwent a caesarean section without her consent. They even allegedly tied her hands.

The Spanish state must pay compensation to a woman who underwent a caesarean section without her consent after her hands were tied, a United Nations panel said today.

Madrid was found guilty of "obstetric violence" against the woman, who has not been named. According to her complaint, the doctors at the Donostia public hospital forced her to give birth prematurely, without her consent. They performed a C-section without her husband present and she was not immediately allowed to hold her newborn son because she was still bedridden.

Spain's Ministry of Health declined to comment on the case. It said only that a bill passed in May promotes "good practice" in childbirth through a series of guidelines.

According to APE-MPE, violence against women during childbirth is widespread, systematic and deeply rooted in health systems. It can cause physical and mental harm, according to the UN. However, such cases are rarely investigated.

One of the few investigated in the past, in 2020, again involved Spain. In 2004 Hungary was held responsible by the UN Commission for the forced sterilization of a woman following a miscarriage.

In the case of Donostia, the woman suffered physical and mental trauma, according to the Commission. In the Spanish court where she appealed, she was told that doctors are the ones who decide on caesareans and that her mental trauma is just "a matter of perception".

The Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW) consists of 23 independent experts monitors whether member countries are complying with a 1979 Convention, which has been signed by 189 states to date.

Elon Musk: His 76-year-old father had a second child with his stepdaughter

The 76-year-old father of Elon Musk revealed that 3 years ago he and his stepdaughter, Jana, gave birth to their second child.

Errol Musk, father of billionaire Elon, decided to reveal after some time that he had a second child with his stepdaughter, Jana Bezuidenhout.

Musk and 35-year-old Jana welcomed their daughter in 2019, but had not made any official announcement until Wednesday, when they confirmed the news to the Sun. "The only reason we exist on Earth is to reproduce," the 76-year-old said.

The two already have a son, 5-year-old Ellion Rush born in 2017.

Father and son share the same beliefs when it comes to procreation, with the news of Errol's daughter coming a week after Elon revealed that in 2021, shortly before his then-wife Grimes is due to give birth to their second child a colleague of his was also due to give birth to their twin children.

Elon Musk's father, for his part, admitted that his partner's pregnancy was not "planned" while revealing to journalists that they no longer live together, noting that the 41 years that separate them also played a role.

Monkey pox: Cases on the rise in the US

At least 1,053 cases of monkeypox in the US according to the latest figures released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. There is still a shortage of vaccines.

There have been 1,053 confirmed cases of monkeypox in the United States, according to the latest figures released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Of the total 43 US states where cases of the virus have been recorded, most (161) come from California, with New York (159) and Illinois (152) following on the relevant list.

More than 132,000 doses of the JYNNEOS vaccine - which has received approval from the relevant Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the US - have been distributed throughout the territory, according to the official data of the US health authorities. However, according to APE-MPE, experts point out that there is still a shortage of vaccines amid the increase in cases of the virus in some states.

5 Equation That Changed the World
5. Law of Universal Gravitation
Newtons most important law, it explains why planets move the way they do, how gravity works and why are we all attracted to each other. Every object in the universe, no matter how far apart, will always be affected gravitationally by other objects, inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

4. Schrodingers Equation
Developed by the Austrian physicist, Erwin Schrodinger, this equation describes how the quantum state of a quantum system changes over time. It also predicts the behaviour of atoms and subatomic particles in quantum mechanics. This equation was a starting point for the nuclear power and electro-technology.

3. The Second Law of Thermodynamics
This law states that energy will always flow from a higher concentration to a lower one, until an energetic equilibrium is achieved, and all the energy is equally spread throughout the universe. Whenever energy moves, it becomes less useful. This law led to the development of combustion engines and electricity generators.

2. Maxwells Equations
Developed by James Maxwell, these equations are to electromagnetism what Newtons law are to gravity. They describe the interaction of charged particles and how electric and magnetic fields interact and are generated. These equations are at the root of all the electronics.

1. Theory of relativity
Probably the most famous equation, E=mc^2 describes the relationship between space and time. Proposed by Einstein in 1905, it later earned him a Nobel Prize. This equation truly changed the way we understand time, gravity and the universes past and future. After 200 years of Newtons work on gravity, Einsteins General Relativity replaced it, speaking of it not as a force, but rather the curvature change in space-time itself.

5 Events That Will Change the Solar System
5. Ringed Mars
New research has determined that Mars might one day kill its nearest moon, Phobos, which is just 22 kilometers (14 mi) wide. With every passing century, the orbit of Phobos shrinks and brings it closer to Mars by 2 meters. Ultimately, this moon will break apart from tidal stresses caused by the red planet, although the process could take up to 40 million years. In the end, Mars will be short one moon but have a Saturn-like ring to take its place.

4. Moon falling apart
In the distant future, our Moon is also predicted to become a ring around Earth, however this wont happen for another five billion years. Unlike the situation with Phobos, the Suns red giant phase will most likely tear the Moon apart. When the Sun swells during its red giant phase, its atmosphere will push the Moon so close to Earth, that tidal forces will rip the Moon apart.

3. Milkomeda
The Milky Way is destined to smash into its neighboring galaxy - Andromeda. As they move toward each other at the dizzying pace of 400,000 km/h, the Milky Way as we know it only has about four billion years left. The collision will be a spectacular cosmic event that will last an incredible one billion years, and result in a reddish elliptical galaxy, possibly called Milkomeda. Despite all the stars in these galaxies, researchers believe that any collisions of the stars or planets are highly unlikely. But anyways, the Sun will be so hot that the oceans will have boiled away by then.

2. Deadly Cloud
When researchers ran simulations, they discovered that our solar system might eventually hit a deadly space fog. The tiny specks may be lethal to all life on Earth. The danger lies in its denseness. At least 1,000 times heavier than anything that Earth is orbiting through now, this cloud can act like a physical force, pushing back the Suns protective heliosphere that shields us from space enemies like cosmic rays. When the cloud meets Earth, the dust and gas can erode the oxygen in our atmosphere. Cosmic rays will zap the world, endangering all living things with a deadly radiation. According to scientists, its less than four light-years away, but we still have a few millennia to prepare.

1. The big Smashup
Planetary orbital paths arent stable and become even less so as time goes by. In a couple of billion years, theres a small possibility that the planets within our solar system will collide with one another. The path in which Mercury orbits around the Sun might widen enough to cross roads with Venus. Such an encounter could send Mercury hurtling into the Sun, out of the solar system, or on a collision course with Earth. In a less likely event, Mercury might become destabilized by passing too close to Jupiters gravitational forces. In turn, this would destabilize Mars. The red planet would become an indirect bullet that Earth would not be able to dodge. By passing too close to Earth, Mars would cause an Earth-Venus smashup by upsetting the orbit of Venus.

5 Incredible Lost Inventions
5. Cold Fusion Device
Eugene Mallove was a notable proponent and supporter of research into cold fusion. He was the author the book Fire from Ice, which details the 1989 report of successful cold fusion from Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann at the University of Utah. Mallove claims that the results were suppressed through an organized campaign from mainstream physicists. He was fatally beaten May 14, 2004 by an unknown assailant. His violent death was suspected by some to be related to the nature of his work.

4. Water Fuel Cell
Stanley Meyer produced nine patents relating to his water powered car. He was subsequently sued by two investors and the court found Meyer guilty of gross and egregious fraud, ordering him to repay the investors their $25,000. Following his sudden death, an autopsy showed that he died of a cerebral aneurysm. Meyers supporters continue to claim that he was assassinated by Big Oil, Arab death squads, Belgian assassins, or the US Government in order to suppress his inventions.

3. Earthquake Machine
At one point while experimenting with mechanical oscillators, Nikola Tesla allegedly generated a resonance of several buildings causing complaints to the police. As the speed grew he hit the resonance frequency of his own building and belatedly realizing the danger he was forced to apply a sledge hammer to terminate the experiment, just as the astonished police arrived. The Discovery Channels popular MythBusters show examined Teslas claim that he had created an Earthquake Machine in their 60th episode. They tested the physical phenomenon known as mechanical resonance on a traffic bridge, which today are built to withstand such forces. While a single I beam of steel was deflected several feet in each direction by their oscillator, and they reportedly felt the bridge shaking many yards away, there were no earth shattering effects. It is worth indicating that, in the time of the event undertaken by Tesla, buildings were not built to withstand such resonance.

2. Flexible Glass
Flexible glass is a legendary lost invention from during the reign of Roman Emperor Tiberius Caesar. As recounted by Isadore of Seville, the craftsman who invented the technique brought before Caesar a drinking bowl made of flexible glass, and Caesar threw it to the floor, whereupon the material dented, rather than shattering. The inventor was able to simply repair the dent with a small hammer. After the inventor swore to the Emperor that he alone knew the technique of manufacture, Caesar had the man beheaded, fearing such material could undermine the value of gold and silver.

1. Chronovision
Father Ernetti was known as an exorcist in the Venice region, but more especially because of his work on the chronovision. In the 1960s he is said to have constructed a time viewer in the 1950s, as part of a group that supposedly included Nobel Laureate Enrico Fermi and Wernher von Braun. The machine was called the Chronovisor, and could allegedly see and hear events of the past. According to an explanation by Ernetti, the luminous energy and sound that objects emanate are recorded in their environment, such that proper use of the chronovisor could reconstruct from said energy the images and sounds of a specific set of events from the past. Through the viewing screen of the chronovisor Father Ernetti claimed to have witnessed a performance in Rome in 169 BC of the now lost tragedy, Thyestes, by the father of Latin poetry, Quintus Ennius. He also claimed to have witnessed Christ dying on the cross. On his death bed in 1994, Father Ernetti said that he attended a meeting of all the people involved in the chronovision at the Vatican during which the only existing machine was destroyed.

5 Phenomena Faster Than Light
5 Things that travel faster than Light According to Einstein, nothing in the Universe that has mass could move faster, or at the speed of light, which is about 300.000km/s. In reality, there is a number of phenomena that have the ability to actually beat the speed of light.

5. Quantum Entanglement
A group of scientists from have been able to achieve teleportation of information. The team has shown that its possible to transfer some information between photons. Then they used a laser pulse to create a quantum state known as entanglement, which essentially lets two atoms displace properties from one to the other. The information would travel faster than the speed of light. It would instantaneously displace proprieties, even if the particles would be at 2 different edges of the universe.

4. The light boom
Like the sonic boom, a light boom happens when something accelerates to a point that it breaks the light barrier. This mostly takes place inside nuclear reactors. When the core of a reactor is submerged in water, where light moves at 75% the speed it would move in vacuum, the electrons generated by the reactor move past that speed. This results in a blue glow, known as Cherenkov radiation, and creates a sort of shock wave of light.

3. The Universes Expansion
To clarify, relativity says that objects cannot travel faster than the speed of light through spacetime. It doesnt, however, have anything to say about spacetime itself. And in fact, spacetime is expanding and pushing matter apart faster than the speed of light. In this respect, every portion of space is expanding and stretching. Its not even that the edges are flying outwards, but that spacetime itselfthe area between galaxies, stars, planets, you and Iis stretching. And it is doing so faster than the speed of light.

2. A Laser
Imagine having a super-powerful laser, which is pointing at one side of the moon. In an instant, change its direction, so that it now points at the other side. This made the laser point travel across the moon faster than the speed of light. However, this doesnt break any rules, as you are only moving a geometric point, not a physical object. In reality, the photons the laser is made of, still move at the speed of light, you are just changing their orientation.

1. Wormhole
If youre trying to reach for the stars, even traveling at the speed of light, we would still need some good thousands of years. Thankfully, Einsteins general theory of relativity opened the possibility of warping spacetime, in what we call  wormholes. The biggest problem with this idea is the energy that it would take to hold that wormhole openand of course, all of the hazards that would come with diving into it. Were not even sure they can exist, but if they do, they would allow one to travel faster than light.

9 Crazy Discoveries That Might Change History
From the secret past of Antarctica, to a breakthrough in the hunt for Queen Nefertiti's tomb. Today we look at 9 CRAZY Discoveries That Might Change History!

9. Chinese Petroglyphs
While epigraph hobbyist John Ruskamp was hiking through New Mexico's Petroglyph National Monument he noticed some markings etched into the side of the rock that seemed out of place next to those he knew to be from Native Americans. After studying the markings more he found that they were most reminiscent of those seen on Chinese Oracle Bones dating back more than twelve-hundred years. There have long been researchers that have put forth the idea that the Ancient Chinese may have been the first Eastern Hemisphere explorers to reach the Americas and Ruskamp believes these carvings prove that theory.

After his initial discovery in New Mexico, uncovering the possible presence of the Ancient Chinese in North America became an obsession for him. Searching various National Parks throughout the Southwest, he believes that he has found numerous other sites that bear Chinese characters in the states of Nevada, California, Utah, Arizona and as far east as Oklahoma. Although many anthropologists and archaeologists are still skeptical due to the lack of other physical evidence there are some who believe its not a matter of whether the Chinese visited America but when they did and how did their exploration affect Ancient American Culture.

8. Antarctic Paradise
The continent of Antarctica, a frozen wasteland devoid of life aside from some of nature's most evolutionarily ambitious animals. But was it always this way? New discoveries suggest that at one point, maybe even as recent as when the Ancient Egyptians roamed the Earth, Antarctica was a hot and humid tropical paradise. Some of the world's most renowned geologists who dare to brave the Antarctic weather, keep uncovering more and more evidence. The most groundbreaking find being that of petrified tree stumps and leaf fossils that belong to a species of deciduous trees. Researchers believe that these fossils mark the remains of three large forests that once flourished on the continent.

Subsequent studying of ice cores from the region back this up and even clarify a possible timeline. The cores show samples of trees and other biomatter that could have lived as recently as 6,000 years ago. There have also been several researchers that have reported find fossils of small animals and the teeth of an Ichthyosaur. These discoveries tie-in to some modern theories that believe there was a point in the Earth's history that an ancient episode of extreme global warming during which both the North and South poles were similar in temperature to the Equator.

7. Bosnian Pyramids
Where are the oldest and largest pyramids on Earth? Your first guess would probably be Egypt or Mexico, but one archaeologist claims they are actually in Europe. Just over 10 miles north of Sarajevo the capital city of Bosnia and Herzegovina, archaeologist Sam Osmanagich discovered what he claims are three giant pyramids that he estimates are over 12,000 years old. Though the pyramids at first glance only look like large grassy hills,when you consider how much erosion would have occurred over thousands of years and combine that with the hills' uncanny and unnatural resemblance to the step pyramids of Mexico, it's easy to imagine the area being home to an advanced ancient civilization.

Two of these pyramids that he has named the Pyramid of the Sun and the Pyramid of the Moon would be over 200 feet taller than The Great Pyramid of Giza if his claims are true. Many scientists are hesitant to confirm his theories as during the time period in which Osmanagich says they were it is believed that humans hadn't even developed simple agricultural systems and that most of Europe would have been covered in ice. But for as many detractors as there are there are just as many supporters of the theory, Osmanagich has even secured government funding for more research and has become somewhat of a hero to his countrymen.

6. Rooms In Tut's Tomb
When the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun, better known as King Tut, was discovered in 1922 it was hailed as one of the biggest archaeological discoveries of all time but all of the secrets surrounding Tut's tombs have yet to be revealed. Recently, archaeologists using radar scanning technology tested the walls where the Pharaoh's sarcophagus was found in search of hidden passageways. They didn't expect to find much but what they ended up  discovering, could lead to an even more sought after find. Behind the walls of Tut's burial chamber the radar showed what could possibly be two secret rooms.

Further tests revealed that the first room likely is filled with organic materials and metal objects while the other room is also home to unknown organic material. It may be a long time before anyone gets permission to take a sledgehammer to the walls and see what's inside, but archaeologist's have theorized that one of the rooms may lead to the long lost tomb of Queen Nefertiti. They believe this because it has long been speculated that Nefertiti might be the mother of King Tut. This theory is backed-up by several factors such as King Tut passing away at a young age could have led his followers to bury him inside another tomb and the fact that the rest of the tomb doesn't seem to cater to a male Pharaoh.

5. Wandering Head
In 1933, just outside of Mexico City, Mexico a ceramic bust was found buried three floors deep. It wasn't until recently that the true origin of the bust was revealed and with it's secrets startling new theories about ancient exploration started to form. After the combined efforts of universities from Canada, Germany, Mexico and the United States the bust was able to be dated and its possible origin established. The bust was found to be an estimated 1800 years old and it was determined that because of the materials used to create it and the figure it represents that it was made in Ancient Rome.

The head is believed to be a representation of either a Roman emperor, soldier or god because of its facial structure and distinct Roman beard. The astounding archaeological find has many historians questioning whether the Romans may have been the first Europeans to explore the Americas. Others have put forth the possibility that the bust may have been transported to Mexico by the Spanish or pirates who could have recovered it from a shipwreck closer to the Old World. But then the question becomes why bury it? The theory that Ancient Romans may have explored the Americas have been further reinforced by the possible discovery of a Roman sword in Nova Scotia, Canada and a shipwreck near Rio De Janeiro, Brazil that also appears Roman in origin.

4. Lovelock Cave
In the early 20th century, a startling discovery that still cannot fully be explained was made in a cave just outside the town of Lovelock in Nevada. While mining the cave for its large deposits of bat guano, engineers started finding what looked like man-made artifacts. Soon researchers from several Universities descended upon the site and began excavating it. Initial reports have these archaeologists discovering the mummified remains of a group of humans that were over 8 feet tall and had reddish colored hair. Not only that but they found a sandal that was around 18 inches long, the painting of a giant hand print and other objects too big to be used by a normal sized person. The problem is, shortly after the initial excavations these giant mummies went missing and haven't been located since.

Searches that followed did reveal the remains of around 60 normal sized people that are estimated to be over 3,000 years old, but there haven't been any more discoveries that point to the existence of ancient giants. What makes the whole tale more compelling is that the Paiute Indians who have called the area home for thousands of years have legends that speak of a tribe called the Si-Te-Cah who were light-skinned giants with red hair. According to the tales the Paiutes were constantly warring with these enormous foes until they defeated them in a battle that supposedly took place near Lovelock Cave.

3. Atlantean Treasure
When the philosopher Plato wrote about the lost city of Atlantis he mentions it's people being in the possession of large amounts of the metal orichalcum. He goes on to paint a picture of the Atlanteans ordaining entire and statues with orichalcum yet does not specify its properties or why in his time, it was worth almost as much as gold. Today orichalcum is particularly rare but not really worth much when it comes to modern application. So it was shocking when in 2015 a diving expedition found a shipwreck that had a trove of almost forty solid orichalcum ingots. The ship was found between the islands of Cyprus and Sicily and is believed to be over 2,500 years old. Though this time from doesn't match Plato's Atlantis it has reignited some historians hopes of finally figuring out what is truth and what is myth.

2. The Irish Ape
As an ancient site that was long used in royal ceremonies, Navan Fort in Ireland, is no stranger to myths and mystery. Historians had thought they had been close to knowing all there was to know about the area until an excavation in the 1980s uncovered another question. Archaeologists there found the skull of a Barbary Ape, an animal that only naturally inhabits Northern Africa. The skull was found amongst a collection of jewelry, clothing and ceramic artwork that were found to be be well over 2,000 years old. So how did this monkey get to the Emerald Isle? Most likely it was the pet of a roman dignitary or local royalty who had bought it from traveling merchants or brought it with them on their tour of duty. However, there are some who believe these bones could be even older than that and possibly tie into the reality behind myths of the Ancient Egyptians sailing to Ireland.

1. Lead Library
In 2006, 70 artifacts that look like metal toddler-books bound by iron ringlets were discovered in a cave in the deserts of Jordan. These small books, with pages made of lead, can easily fit in the palm of one's hand and may be the key to understanding mysteries of the Christian Bible. The books have been tested to be just under 2,000 years old and place them at a time period just after the life of Jesus. Researchers have found that the images inside the books seem to tell the tales of Christ's life on Earth and if they can be decoded may change the entire interpretation of the New Testament or possibly provide proof. What's more, many of the books are locked shut which suggests that maybe the books were hidden on purpose. Some Christian historians believe they could be the mythical collection of manuscripts that John wrote about it in the apocalyptic Book of Revelation.

10 Discoveries That Will Shape the Future
10. Solar storage material

IMAGINE CARRYING SUNSHINE in your pocket. Danish researchers are developing molecules known as Dihydroazulene-Vinylheptafulvene that store energy from the Sun by changing their shape, and release it when they change back. The system isn’t particularly efficient, but with further refinement it could prove to be an environmentally friendly alternative to current lithium-ion batteries, the researchers say.

9. Making trees grow faster

MIGHTY OAKS FROM little acorns grow, the old saying goes. The only trouble is that it’s a very slow process. Now, a team at the University of Manchester has identified two genes that are able to increase the growth rate of a poplar tree by speeding up cell division in the stem. The work could increase supplies of renewable resources and help trees cope with the effects of climate change.

8. Self-powering camera

CAMERAS that run out of battery just as you’re about to take a snap may soon be a thing of the past. A team at Columbia University has created a pixel that can harvest the energy of the light that falls on it, as well as measuring it to create an image. Currently the camera can produce one image per second, indefinitely, in a well-lit room. Eventually the technology could lead to cameras that can function with no need for external power, the researchers say.

7. Centimetre accurate GPS

IF YOUR SAT-NAV has ever led you into a muddy field, read on. Researchers at the University of Texas have built an inexpensive consumer GPS system that’s 100 times more accurate than its current equivalent. The GRID system reduces location errors from the size of a large car to the size of a pound coin. It could be used for delivery drones, self-driving cars, and even virtual reality gaming.
The system uses an inexpensive receiver to harvest accurate location information from antennas found in mobile phones.

6. An end to hunger pangs?

IF YOU FIND that extra slice of cake too hard to resist, blame your AGRP neurones. Researchers at Howard Hughes Medical Institute found they generate negative feelings that cause us to seek food. With further study, the researchers say they may be able to manipulate this process and put an end to hunger pangs.

5. The flexible robots are coming!

THE DAYS OF stiff, immobile robots may soon be numbered. A team at the University of Pittsburgh has designed a synthetic polymer gel that mimics Euglena mutabilis, a single-celled, pond-dwelling organism. The gel can change shape and move using chemical energy. Scaled up, the gel could be used to create robots that are lighter and have an improved range of motion.

4. Artificial photosynthesis

BIODEGRADABLE PLASTICS can now be made using artificial photosynthesis. The system,
developed at the University of California, is made of tiny bacteriacoated wires that absorb solar energy and use it to convert CO2 into acetate.

3. Quieter flights

AS ANYONE WHO’S ever tried to get 40 winks during a long haul flight knows, riding in aeroplanes can be a noisy experience. Help may be on the way, however, in the form of a thin rubber
membrane that’s been designed by a team at Massachusetts Institute of Technology The material can be placed into the cabin walls and could block 100 to 1,000 times more sound energy when installed.
It works by causing soundwaves created by airflow on the outside of the aeroplane to bounce off, rather than pass through into the cabin.

2. Safer suction

MEET THE NORTHERN clingfish, a tiny fish with serious suction power. A team at the University of Washington is investigating the bio mechanics of how its suction force can hold up to 150 times its own body weight even in wet, slimy environments. The key is an elastic disc on their bellies that
is covered in a microscopic hair-like structure. Similar technology could lead to a bio-inspired device that could stick to organs or tissues without harming the patient, or be used to tag whales and track them, the team says.

1. 'Homing beacon’ to beat bacteria
A MOLECULAR ‘HOMING beacon’ that attracts antibodies has been developed and used to ‘tag’ bacteria by a team at the University of California. One end of the molecule has a DNA aptamer that attaches to an invasive bacteria, while alpha- Gal, a sugar molecule, is at the other end. The alpha-Gal triggers the release of antibodies which then attack the bacteria. The technique may eventually be used to attack any type of bacteria or virus, or perhaps even cancer cells, researchers say.
