Dobhar Chu

In honor of Saint Patrick’s Day, let’s travel to Ireland for what some call blarney and others say is the coolest dog-otter around: the Dobhar Chu. The Dobhar Chu lives in whatever body of water is convenient—lakes, seas, oceans, possibly a city pool if well-located. With its glossy, dark fur, the creature is described as […]

Megan Fox Believes in Bigfoot, Leprechauns and the Loch Ness Monster

We love doing stories about celebrities and the paranormal (Sammy Hagar, Adele, Fran Drescher, Rihanna, Charlie Sheen). The only paranormal show I can watch without wanting to vomit is Celebrity Ghost Stories, because it’s just people talking about weird things that happened to them, no faked evidence, no “experts” speaking in absolutes, no scripted drama. It doesn’t mean […]

First Irish Case of Spontaneous Human Combustion?

Spontaneous human combustion is one of those weird fringe phenomena that you don’t hear about too often anymore, except perhaps in encyclopedias of the weird and unexplained (which I love, by the way). Most cases I’ve heard about it were from a century ago or more, and with the occasional occurrence in the ’50s or ’60s. But […]
