These woods are said to be Haunted by the ghost of old man Sleeper. He was a hermit that lived atop the hill here back in the 50′s, and he was notorious for hating trespassers. He would chase off them off, sometimes using his shotgun or axe, and reportedly releasing  his bull at times to do the job. Obviously, parents warned their kids to stay away from old man Sleepers property, and of course, they usually didn’t listen. For some reason, the old man hung himself in his barn on top of the hill. by latoya

In addition to being a first-class statesman, Sir Winston Churchill was a talented artist as well. The man loved to paint. He loved it so much that he built himself an art studio in his estate’s garden. When he felt the “Black Dog” of depression tailing him, he would retreat to his studio and keep the darkness away by putting brush to canvas. by Gary Street

Ohio - This unoccupied farmhouse on Roberts Road in Hilliard is supposed to have been the site of a mass murder. The patriarch of the family who lived here killed his wife and children with an axe and then hung himself with a chain at the foot of the main staircase. Today he appears, a ghostly figure with a gray beard, in and around the house, and whispers scary things like "Get out" to trespassers in his home. by opal

Despite the meal, the adorable youngster was obviously still hungry, as he was photographed chewing on his mother's nose just minutes later. by florence

If I dwell on the Cross of Christ, I do not simply become inwardly devout & solely interested in my own holiness, I become strongly focused on Christ’s interests. Our Lord was not a recluse nor a fanatical holy man practicing self-denial. He did not physically cut Himself off from society, but He was inwardly disconnected all the time. He was not aloof, but He lived in another world. Yet our Lord never allowed anything to interfere with His consecration of spiritual power. — Oswald Chambers by veronicawasp

Burgess Slide Action Folding Shotgun- Inventor Andrew Burgess had almost 900 firearm-related patents to his name when he died, but his company was never a household name. This is mostly due to the fact that the company was only 6 years old when Burgess sold it to Winchester in 1899. One of Burgess’ patents was for this slide action folding shotgun. This 12-gauge shotgun with a 27-in barrel was designed to be carried in a belt holster. The target audience was bank messengers and prison guards. by helene

In 1983, this man was tested to see if he could sense God if all his senses were taken away. Every sensory nerve in his brain was disconnected. He began reporting that he could hear the voices of the dead and gave precise details that he couldn't have known. He then said he could see them, and began clawing at his eyes, which turned to screaming and biting chunks of his flesh off. His last words were "I have spoken with God, and he has abandoned us” and he died. by maribel
