The remains of a woman were found sitting in front of her TV - 42 years after she was reported missing. Hedviga Golik, who was born in 1924, had apparently made herself a cup of tea before sitting in her favorite armchair in front of her black and white television set. Croatian police said that she was last seen by neighbors in 1966, when she would have been 42 years old. Her neighbors thought she had moved out of her flat in Zagreb.However, she was found by police and bailiffs when they broke in to help the authorities establish who owned the flat. When officers went there, they said it was like stepping into a place frozen in time. The cup from which she had been drinking tea was still on a table next to the chair where she had been sitting, and the house was full of things no one had seen for a long time. Nothing had been disturbed for decades, although there were more than a few cobwebs in there.Despite numerous actions by tenants, who noticed that nobody had been using the flat since 1970, as well as those by city services, which requested that the apartment be broken into and examined, nobody reacted to their pleas for nearly four decades.

Leaf bug (Phyllium giganteum)

The constant wobbling as they move is a part of their disguise, making it seem as though the “leaf” is only moving because of a light breeze.

If you blow on one it will also shake around in the hopes of matching any actual surrounding leaves

COPS HEX VOODOO PUNKERS

NEW ORLEANS (UPI) - Seven punk rock music fans looking for the tomb of a voodoo queen and arrested for trespassing have filed complaints against city police. A police spokesman declined comment on the case Sunday pending results of an internal investigation. Police arrested 18 people including members of the punk band The Misfits. Police said several members of the group carried chains and many of the women sported bald heads or Mohawk haircuts. A 16 year old girl arrested at the cemetery filed a false arrest and battery complaint, claiming an officer struck her in the face with a flashlight when she refused to say whether she was male or female. Carlos Diaz, 27, of Metarie, LA, told police the group went to the cemetery to find the tomb of legendary voodoo queen Marie Laveau following a performance by the band. He said they looked through the cemetery gates, but had not entered the grounds when they were arrested.

Genetically Modified Berry compared to Organic Berry:
Note that the modified specimen is bloated to about 3 times the mass of the common berry. Advanced rot has set in prior to maturity and tests revealed 78% more lactic acid in the modified organism.
Upon contact with the modified berry, the picker’s hands exhibited a rash which is clearly visible on the fingers and should not be mistaken for juice stains acquired during picking. While the common berry, of course, has no ill effects on the skin, the modified organism had an effect similar to poison oak and swelling set in shortly after the photo was taken.  The discoloration and pain lasted approximately 12 hours with treatment including Neosporin and Syrup of Ipecac.
At 16 hours the specimen went missing and could not be monitored for decay rates.  While the common berry remained, the modified berry was spotted the next Tuesday at the corner of Wallace and 12th St. Having grown another meter and a half, the genetically modified berry murdered two prostitutes and became the target of a cross country manhunt. It was last seen on February 20th in Boulder, CO where it has joined with several bananas from the Monsanto corporation and stolen at least two shotguns from the Boulder Police Department.
A manifesto was released online suggesting that the berries intend to strike at our nurseries, killing our young and replacing them with further modified organisms which we will raise as our own. They also intend to “free their enslaved brothers” by treating common fruits and possibly vegetables with mutagens.
The head of the FDA could not be reached for comment as he has gone missing. Only a glass of unidentified red fluid was found in his office, labeled “Extra Pulp”.

The number of people that aren’t reading the whole thing and are hailing it as fact make me laugh harder than the actual story.

Case of Anneliese Marchel 

Anneleise Marchel was a devout Catholic from Germany. But at the age of seventeen she began to suffer with odd seizures, most of which happened at night. She had symptoms of paralysis, inability to speak, and a sensation of a large amount of weight on her chest. She also had sudden onsets of severe depression. 

But there were also changes in her that could not be explained. There was a situation at the dinner table, where her hands suddenly looked enormous. Almost twice their normal size. They all knew this was demonic, demonic entities are able to manipulate the physical world. 

This was also around the time she began to see demonic entities and terrifying visions. She claimed, “I see devil faces on the walls, they have seven crowns and seven horns.”

She and her family believed she was suffering with demonic possession. She became unable to be in sacred places, or around religious objects. They began to contact an exorcist. 

She began to be thrown to the ground repeatedly at some point. Upon standing up she would just be forced down again. She slept on the stone floor for three years, because no matter what she did she would just be forced down. 

Father Renz was the main exorcist on the case. He decided to do a trial run for a minor exorcism before the full blown exorcisms were approved. This was, unfortunately, when things got worse for Anneliese.

She would, at random times, go berserk. She was able to read the minds of other people. When she tore off the rosary off of Father Renz, he knew the entity(s) were powerful. He finally got authorizations from the church to do full on exorcisms. 

This was when he found out the names of the demons taking possession of Anneliese. Their names included.

  • Judas Iscariot
  • Lucifer
  • Hitler
  • Fallen priest Fleischmann
  • Nero
  • Cain

They were able to take many recordings of the exorcisms. In the source you can find the audio and transcripts of these recordings, along with more detailed information. Or click here.

Anneliese died July 1st. Before then, she had told everyone something would happen in July. Cause of death was malnutrition and dehydration. 

Her story also was inspiration for the movie The Exorcism of Emily Rose.

Just sad

I guess that meme of DaQuan—the one y’all thought was funny—came true mhmmm 😒

These people

  • kicked their daughter out (left her at a homeless shelter)
  • found out she had left the shelter to live with a guy
  • tracked them down at 9 at night to yell at her
  • shot her unarmed boyfriend (killing him)
  • shot at her after she ran to hide in the bushes
  • shot at the bf’s 13 yr old brother (hitting him in the arm)
  • fled the scene 
  • were allowed to turn themselves in
  • were put on PAID suspension

Such bullshit

Attempted murder (and shooting at minors!)  only gets paid leave. The more one scratches the surface..
