Bizarre In The News - The truth is out there

MATTHEW Jones was totally unprepared for what he saw as he stood in his garage in suburban Canberra in October last year.
Packing boxes for a house move, he was confronted by a stocky, hairy monster standing in the corner of the garage staring at him.
The creature, according to James, was a juvenile covered in hair, with long arms that almost touched the ground.
"It was inquisitive about what I was doing," he said. "It was definitely trying to communicate with me."
At the time, James had no idea what the creature could be. A friend later told him it could be a yowie - the creature described in the newly-published Something Is Out There as "the big daddy of all Australian mystery monsters".

It is, according to the book about the paranormal, the Aussie cousin of North America's Bigfoot, the Himalayan Yeti and the Abominable Snowman.
The Aussie monster is as elusive as he is controversial, often seen but never photographed, according to the book's authors Julie Miller and Grant Osborn. They claim the yowie is an important part of folklore, making numerous appearances in the Dreamtime legends.

Thursday LOLs -

Horny ghost Kev spooks housewife

A NORTHERN Territory woman is convinced a horny ghost is haunting her home.

Jennifer Mills-Young claims the ghost, named Kevin, once tried to drag her out of bed in the middle of the night.

"I was asleep," she said. "I woke up when someone grabbed my wrist.

"I though, 'Hmmm, hubby wants a bit of romance', when I suddenly remembered he wasn't even at home."

Mrs Mills-Young said she could feel the hand around her wrist trying to pull her up and out of bed.

"The moment I opened my eyes, the grip was gone and the room was empty.

"I yelled at Kevin that he was not welcome in my bedroom and that he couldn't come into bed with me.

"I told him to f*** off and to close the door behind him. A moment later I saw how the bedroom door slowly was closed.

"I jumped up and locked it - not that it makes much of a difference when you're dealing with a ghost."

''I believe that by drinking blood, I imprint my consciousness, so that in the next life I will remember who I am now.''

Bizarre In The News - Council to reconsider Picton Ghost Hunts

Macarthur Chronicle

WOLLONDILLY Council was considering terminating its licence agreement with Picton Ghost Hunts at last night’s council meeting, in a move that operators say would end the business.

Council officers had recommended the council end the agreement after years of pressure from both police and residents to stop the tours to the disused Picton railway tunnel known as the mushroom tunnel - (mushrooms were produced there some years ago). Residents say they have been subjected to continuing antisocial behaviour such as egg throwing, flashing (nudity), drug taking, offensive language and excessive noise in the tunnel area. The termination of the agreement would spell the end of 13 years of Picton Ghost Hunts, a popular and successful Macarthur area tourist attraction.
