You wanna be scared?

Dec 25, 2022
You wanna be scared?

I love the unknown, things that make you think, strange phenomenas, mysteries, mysterious creatures… and the likes. There is a category of animals known as cryptids, or “hidden” animals whose existence have been suggested but unrecognized by science. A creature falls under the category of “cryptid” only if it meets certain criteria’s, such as: it...

The Eerie Enigma of the Mothman

Oct 25, 2017
The Eerie Enigma of the Mothman

A terrifying man-bird hybrid of sorts with glowing red eyes. That is the common description of the creature christened “The Mothman” by the press, named after a character from the popular Batman television series. Since its first reported sighting back in 1966, many subsequent reports and wild speculations have ensued. However, conclusive photographic evidence...

Creepy Tales of the Lizard Man

Sep 20, 2017
Creepy Tales of the Lizard Man

The mere mention of the Lizard Man conjures creepy images of mutant-like humanoid reptilians. Interestingly, despite possible disapproval from the grammar police, the term “Lizard Man” is used interchangeably to refer to a broad spectrum of bipedal hominid-like reptilian creatures (sometimes also referred to as “Homo-subterreptus) instead of just one specific cryptid. Thus, reported...

Werewolves: The Shapeshifters

Apr 27, 2017
Werewolves: The Shapeshifters

Commonly associated with the full moon and silver bullets, lycanthropes or werewolves are said to be humans with a mysterious ability to morph into actual wolves or wolf-like creatures during the full moon. Whilst the former is easy to envisage, there is no conclusive consensus on the appearance of the latter, a mutated wolf...

The Legend of “Nessie”, the Loch Ness Monster

Of all the monsters in the world, one creature outshines them all. None are more notorious than the beast that is said to inhabit Scotland’s Loch Ness. In fact, it is so well known that it has been affectionately given the moniker “Nessie” . Some dismiss Nessie as a myth while others firmly maintain its...

The Curse of Otzi, the Iceman

Mar 7, 2017
The Curse of Otzi, the Iceman

When Helmut Simon and his wife, Erika, stumbled upon an odd sight during their hike of the Ötztal Alps on the Austrian-Italian border in September 1991, they chalked it up to being the remains of a lost mountaineer. They had come across the mummified corpse of a person half-entombed in the ice at an...

The Legend of the Mermaid

Feb 28, 2017
The Legend of the Mermaid

Considering that water makes up about 71% of the Earth’s surface, it is hardly surprising that there are many mysterious marine creatures associated with our vast seas and lakes. Of all such creatures, no other has continued to capture the vivid imagination of the human mind more than the maidens of the sea, more...

Ogopogo: The Canadian Water Dragon

Feb 20, 2017
Ogopogo: The Canadian Water Dragon

The name Ogopogo is perhaps the most unlikely designation for a mysterious creature that continues to divide opinion on whether it actually exists. Ogopogo is the popular name for a lake monster or a huge water snake in Canadian Native American folklore, said to reside in the Okanagan Lake in British Columbia. Known as...

Tales of the Mystical Firebird

Dec 28, 2016
Tales of the Mystical Firebird

Since ancient times, there has been much fascination with bird-like creatures because of their ability to fly and their freedom to go where mere mortals cannot, at least until the advent of modern technology. Their mystery and seasonal disappearances also add to their allure. It is no wonder then that the Firebird continues to...

Mysteries of the Goatman

Dec 25, 2016
Mysteries of the Goatman

Half goat, half man. A cryptid dubbed the “Goatman” has, over the years, easily become one of the most horrifying and mysterious creatures in the United States of America. Amongst the list of eerie and sometimes violent incidences that have been attributed to the Goatman are reports of animal mutilation, property destruction, ravaging of...

Be Patient

Give the room a chance to answer you. Patience is a virtue. And if after awhile, people don't respond, perhaps they don't know the answer or they did not see your question. Do ask again or address someone directly. Do not be offended if people do not or are unable to respond to you.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
