Unicorn driving!

A true story:
A man told police not to blame him for crashing his truck into a light post — it was that unicorn behind the wheel


According to physics' laws vampires cannot exist

Physics scientists Costas J. Efthimiou and Sohang Gandhi have discovered a mathematical theory that proves that vampires, zombies, ghosts and such things can't possibly exists in this current universe.

Their theory is based on the reduction to the absurd. In short, they prooved that, according to mathematical calculations, the way the vampire population would increase as time passed by, would dramatically reduce the human population to almost zero in a matter of months...

They also try to proove why is it a nonsense believing that ghosts can go through walls.

You can find the paper here: "Cinema Fiction vs Physics Reality" (PDF).

Of course, this had to upset vampire fans an believers. So, different opinions had to rise eventually as the paper came out.

A "counter-opinion" has been released based on a "vampire-slayer" perspective (involving mathematics and such): "Math proves that the Buffy universe harbors no more than 512 vampires".

Javier Pazos has given another opinion to refute this paper in his blog: Ghosts, Vampires and Zombies. A good one that presents the humourous side of this matter.

As for me I think these scientists are missing the simple fact that justify the mere existence of "paranormal effects": THEY ARE MEANT TO CONTRADICT PHYSICS!!!
Or else... they wouldn't be "paranormal" and "behind human understanding".

And since even physics change over time to reveal strange and bizarre theories such as quantum mechanics that contradict the common sense, why should we trust that there are such things as "the-ones-that-cannot-exist"?

A mistery unveiled

The author of the horror thriller "Heart-Shaped Box" was finnaly uncovered as the older son of the famous Stephen King - Joseph Hillstrom King...

The identity of "Joe Hill" has been kept a mistery for quite a long until his novel became a huge success...
