Indonesian Villagers Who Dig Up Their Ancestors And Dress Them

Acknowledging the dead is a common practice for many societies: From Mexico’s Día de los Muertos to America’s Memorial Day, remembering and honoring our lost loved ones allows us to consciously recognize their absence. However, some cultures take remembering and honoring their dead to another, much higher, level.

Stanley Hotel Room 217: A Paranormal Experience That Turned A Skeptic Into A Believer

Just a couple of months after seeing a fascinating ghost tour in March of 2017, at the Stanley Hotel, I finally made reservations to stay the night. I chose to stay in the famous room 217.

Fu Wengui: A Teenager With An Unusually Long Neck

Fu Wengui is a Chinese teenager living who lives with an extremely long neck. While the usual human cervical vertebrae consists of 7 bones, Wengui has ten! The extra bones cause pressure on the nerves in his neck, resulting in pain and difficulties with ambulation. According to Wengui’s father, Fu Genyou, when he goes out in public, he causes a stir.

In addition to extra bones in the neck, Wengui also suffers from other conditions. At the age of six, he was diagnosed with congenital scoliosis and an abnormal chest frame. Congenital scoliosis is a rare (occurring in just 1 in 10,000 newborns) deformity that causes a sideways curvature of the spine. It is present at birth and caused by a malformation of the spine. read more
