Across Oklahoma, there are dozens of abandoned and empty towns. Just thinking about walking through some small empty village gives me the shivers.

Excerpt:

Ghost towns can include sites in various states of disrepair and abandonment. Some sites no longer have any trace of civilization and have reverted to pasture land or empty fields. Other sites are unpopulated but still have standing buildings. Some sites may even have a sizable, though small population, but there are far fewer citizens than in its grander historic past.

Frequently reported in Oregon, among other states, the Black-Eyed Kids are terrifying creatures who resemble young children with black eyes. There is much debate whether these creatures are aliens or ghosts, but they are 100% scary no matter what.

Excerpt:

During one week in September 2014, the British tabloid Daily Star ran three sensationalistic front-page stories about alleged sightings of black-eyed children, connected to the sale of a supposedly haunted pub in Staffordshire. The paper claimed a “shock rise in sightings around the world”. Alleged sightings are taken seriously by ghost hunters, some of whom believe black eyed children to be extraterrestrials, vampires, or ghosts.

Excerpt:

On January 13, 1955, Jessup received a letter from a man who identified himself as one “Carlos Allende.” In the letter, Allende informed Jessup of the “Philadelphia Experiment,” alluding to two poorly sourced contemporary newspaper articles as proof.

Oscar (therapy cat)

Oscar the cat lives in a Rhode Island nursing home where he is said to predict patients’ imminent deaths. When a patient is near death, Oscar cuddles up next to them and spends a great deal of time with them.

Excerpt:

After Oscar had been at Steere House for around six months, staff noticed that Oscar often chose to nap next to residents who died within several hours of his arrival. It seemed to staff as if Oscar were trying to comfort and provide company to people as they died.

After Oscar accurately predicted 25 deaths, staff started calling family members of residents as soon as they discovered him sleeping next to someone in order to notify them and give them an opportunity to say goodbye before the impending death. As of January 2010, Oscar had accurately predicted approximately 50 patients’ deaths.

2016 has been consumed by sightings of creepy clowns chasing children and harassing traffic. These sightings all started at a South Carolina apartment complex, where weird clowns were said to be trying to lure children into the woods and an abandoned cabin with candy and money.

Excerpt:

On 18 September 2016, in State College, a clown was seen acting strangely at the parking lot of a YMCA early in the morning. In late September, reports stated that an individual dressed as an angry clown was seen with a knife around the wooded areas behind of Kistler Elementary School. A Reading High School student was stabbed and killed by someone in a clown mask on September 25.
